Gooooooooodddd Mooorrrnnningggg Vermont!!


Much, Much different than Florida, but I’ll take it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We arrived late last night, but not too late for wine. Obviously.



Here’s to skiing, friends, Vermont, and good times!! ๐Ÿ™‚


The women drank wine, while the men made fire.






Now it feels like vacation.


We stayed up way past my bedtime drinking wine, telling stories, and having a good laugh. This is my first vacation with multiple couples and I can tell I’m already a fan. I had the most ridiculous smile plastered all over my face and I’m afraid it’s going to be here all weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

This morning the wonderful sunshine filling my room instantly pulled me out of bed. I ran downstairs and found a couple of ladies already up and ready to explore the big beautiful house we’re staying in.


We’re staying at Ashley’s Aunt’s house just outside Manchester City, VT for a long weekend. It’s her Aunt’s second home and it’s absolutely GORGEOUS!





Breakfast was fend for yourself. We came prepared with the makings for bagels or bowls of cereal.


I went with cereal. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Blogging and Breakfast!


Blogs are great for many reasons and having the ability to make friends all over the country is one of them. THis weekend several of those friends will be coming together for a great time in the snow.

Follow us on twitter this weekend under the Hashtag #SkiBlog11 ๐Ÿ™‚

What a great trip! Vermont is so pretty. I don’t even ski but I prefer their mountains and little resort towns over my own most of the time. I think they are so peaceful and the people are so kind. That house is beautiful! Have so much fun!!
