What I'm Loving Wednesday...Friendcation.

A few posts ago I mentioned that we were headed up to Lake Tahoe for the weekend with friends. I've delayed on posting about it because I was waiting for my friend Melissa's photos since she had quite a few I knew I would want to steal! Ha! The subject line of her email to all of us with the photos was Friendcation. I think it may be my new favorite word. We had the BEST time, and with a few more "friendcations" coming up or in the works I look forward to more weekends like this one. With busy schedules, friends living all over the state, country, world, it's so nice to get a whole weekend to re-group with friends that feel like family. One of the best parts of this friendcation was realizing how thankful I am that friends like Melissa are married to men that I adore, that Mr. Jones gets along with and that he has friends that make you feel like you've all been friends forever. It's one thing to like your friends boyfriends/husbands and it's even better when you enjoy THEIR friends. I am so very thankful for the friendships that I have in my life.  So... without further ado I give you our "February Friendcation"

 Our "humble" abode for the weekend, thanks to Melissa's parents! Looking forward to many more weekends here. (hint hint)
 Friday night everyone came in at different times, Missy's husband had friends flying in and driving in so once we were all together we relaxed with a few drinks and lots of laughs before heading off to bed.

 The "season" hasn't been much of anything this year, so Mr. Jones was the only one brave enough to hit the slopes "properly" the rest of us decided to head outside with sleds and discs and have fun playing in the snow. Fine by me, I'm not a huge snow sports person...

 as evident by my tennis shoes... in the snow.. yep. I'm more of a two piece and a towel kind of gal.

However, having said that I had waay too much fun racing down that hill ;)

The Grinde's pretty Bella wanted in on all the action too! 

 The Group minus Mr. Jones

After a long day playing in the snow we headed out to the Casinos for dinner and drinks

Then it was back to the house for a little Kinect Dance Off

The next day it was time to clean up, take a few group shots head out for lunch and hit the road.

 Until next time friends!

Happy Wednesday my loves, hope you too have lots to love.

XOXO- Miss V.
