Greetings from Bear Valley!

Hey all!  Just wanted to check in to let you know what's new. :D

Hubby got the week off, so we decided to head up to a cabin in the mountains with a small group of close friends and family.  He's an avid snowboarder so he's been looking forward to this trip all year.  I, on the other hand, have a terrible fear of cold as well as sub-par balance and coordination...not the best characteristics for snowboarding.  However, after about 4 years, I'm getting better at it, therefore it's becoming more fun.  Plus, the snow is so pretty. :)

Have I mentioned that he's one of the kindest, most patient men I've ever known?  Even though he's really experienced, he'll spend nearly every moment with me on the bunny slopes helping me improve my skills.  I guess that's love!

My sisters and me, all bundled up and ready to take several tumbles down the hill.  Haha!

I was taking a shot of my cousin when I noticed a rainbow.  Pretty!

So, yup, that's what I've been up to!  Thus explaining the reason why I've been a little absent with the fashion and beauty posts.

Oh, I'm also very pleased that I've reached 200 subscribers!  Yay!  I'll be announcing my celebratory giveaway on Friday when I return.  Can't wait! :D

Hope you're all having a nice post-Christmas week so far and have a great night!



  1. Wow looks like fun! I've never snowboarded in my life, but I have skiied. That's so sweet that he spends time helping you. That's the way it should be lol. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. Snowboarding looks fun, but it's too "physical" for me. I'd probably twist my ankle or break an arm... :/

    oOo! You have 2 sisters! 3 girls in the family! I'm the oldest and I have 2 younger brothers (who do not want to pose as my guinea pigs when I wanna try new makeup looks! Why!). :P

  3. I love skiing so much!! I love the mountain view and the snow, the sun, the food.. Enjoy!!

  4. @Lawren: Thanks! I actually haven't tried skiing before, so it's definitely something I want to move on to after I've perfected the art of snowboarding. :D

    @Jennifer: It's really fun once you get the hang of it! Start off with a lesson on the bunny slopes and you'll be good to go! Haha, actually getting my sisters to let me practice makeup on them is like pulling teeth, so you're not alone!

    @Ivonne: Thanks! I had a great time! Looking forward to going again! :D
