Team XP Goes to the Mountains

by Meghann on March 8, 2013

Welcome to our home for the next few days!

This is my favorite part.

Mainly because of this.

Lake front view, baby! Too bad the water is just a tad too cold to swim right now. 😉

We made it to Northern Georgia safe and sound last night. It is absolutely gorgeous up here! Tons of sunshine, crisp cool mountain air, and the promise of four days with friends who all agreed comfy clothes would be the wardrobe of choice for the weekend.

We did hit a slight snag when we had to stop to fix a flat tire (boo!), but we were only off of the road for 45 minutes and thankfully the mechanic was able to patch the hole without a problem.

Though, I was on the look out for zombies the entire time we were stopped in the small town. I felt like I stepped into a scene of The Walking Dead! Where’s Rick Grimes when you need him?!

We caught up with the rest of the crew and made it to the cabin well before sundown.

So excited to be spending a long weekend with all of my favorite girls!

Tacos were on the menu for tonight.

Dinner time!

Tacos are probably one of the best meals when it comes to feeding a big group of hungry folks.

I had two with all the fixins and a side of broccoli.

Cheese!

S’mores for dessert!

Nothing says mountain getaway like s’mores by the fire.

We stayed up all night playing Catchphrase and Apples to Apples (LOVE those games!), then crashed hard just after midnight. We have no big plans for the rest of the weekend besides hiking and exploring the area. We’re planning on taking the relaxed approach to the weekend, which I don’t have a problem with at all.

What’s your favorite type of weekend getaway? Mountains or the beach?
