ski weekend '10

Well I am back, my lovely friends. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
mmb and I spent the weekend in the mountains up in Maine for some end-of-the-season spring skiing and we had an a-m-a-z-i-n-g time.  
mmb is an awesome skier...me, not so much. 
But here is the good news...you don't have to be a skier to enjoy a ski weekend getaway ;-) 
I skied Saturday morning on the little slopes while mmb conquered the double black diamonds. We stopped for some lunch about noon and then went back to our hotel for some apres ski fun in the lodge. 
Later that night we took a nap (a luxury that is soooo understated!) then hit up the outdoor hot tub and heated pool. 
It. was. heaven. 
The moon and stars above and a cold breeze blowing through was the perfect combo for relaxing in the hot bubbling pool of goodness. 
After that we went to grab some dinner and then relaxed the night away. This morning mmb got up and skied some more, then we grabbed some breakfast and started the trek from Maine to Massachusetts. On the way we passed a street called "Simplicity Lane", when I remarked about it my ever so sweet boyfriend said, "Do you want to get a picture?". I declined, but kissed this man on the cheek. Because he gets it, and because he is awesome. 

On the way home we stopped at an open house for a home we have been eying and oh, my goodness, was it amazing. Sun drenched rooms, beautiful yard, nice neighborhood, GORGEOUS kitchen (which the realtor who was selling the home commented that I look really good in, haha)  and plenty of rooms so that he can have his own office, I can have my own scraproom, and still with all that, have room for a couple of little ones (someday) running around. 
The downside? Its a tad overpriced right now. We are optimistically keeping our eyes on it because you never know what might happen. 
Whatever is meant to be, will be, right?

Tonight, we relaxed on the couch, watched the news about the Health Care Bill, did some research about the town the house is in and looked online for some more (while sipping champagne because the weekend was that good ;-)...)

Ahhhh, we really needed this weekend. 

Hope whatever you did this weekend, that it brought you as much joy as ours did :)
