Thursday's Thoughts.

Another random Thursday post coming atcha!

-The ski trip was SO much fun! It started snowing almost immediately once we got to Boone and was almost continuous throughout the entire weekend. We wound up skiing a whole day on Saturday and a half day on Sunday. I hadn't been skiing since high school so my first run was really sloppy and I almost killed myself by going straight the entire time rather than zig-zagging. I was hauling ass and was seriously scared for my life. Oops. After that, it was like riding a bike. It all came back to me. :)

The guys enjoying the hot tub. None of the girls stepped foot in it all weekend, surprisingly.
We also found some plastic sleds in a closet at the house. I think we might have had more fun sledding than skiing. Possibly.

-Cameron's sweet parents gave me us this SUPER soft and cozy planket from Pottery Barn. They received one for Christmas and every time I go over to their house I grab it from their bedroom and cozy up with it. It's on sale right now so I suggest you get one! You won't regret it!

-Not gonna lie, even though wedge salads are super easy to make, I was pretty proud of how mine turned out. :)

-I like to take pictures of my meals.
French toast casserole topped with bananas fosters (minus a bite) that I made for everyone before a day of skiing!
Avocado & tomato bruschetta sprinkled with balsalmic vinegar. SO GOOD.
Pork chop, skinny potatoes au gratin & sauteed kale with tomatoes and feta.
-After almost a year and a half break (when he bought the house), Cameron and I are members of a gym again! We used to both be members of Pivotal but now we're at East Shore. I can already tell I'm going to love it. So much closer to our house and I have lots of friends that are members there, which will motivate me to actually go! I did a core class on Tuesday, Taebo last night and Emily & I are trying out Zumba tonight! Some awesome white girl moves are going to be happening.

All for now! :)


  1. Ah! I love skiing as well! Looks like you had a blast! That blanket is so soft! My fiance and I got one for christmas as well! I am a new follower! loving your blog!

  2. Ahh hha so that's where you were! I love to ski! We haven't been yet this year because our winter has been so mild, but who knows maybe we will sometime. Love the food pics!!

  3. Yum! All of those recipes look so good! I tried Zumba the other day and I'm sure I looked ridiculous, but I had so much fun!

  4. The first (and only) time that I went skiing was in Boone as well! It was quite awful, but I just need to learn how. Those meals look DELISH! Would you share the recipe for the bruschetta? :)

  5. Yay Boone! That's where I learned to ski when I was little - I grew up close to there. Glad you had fun! And I love Zumba, makes the hour of workout time go by so much faster.

  6. OMG I am going to need that recipe for the avocado and tomato bruschetta. It looks AMAZING!! and it's funny to see them in a hot tub in the snow, I would freeze getting out!!

  7. I love that the boys are drinking tall boys in the hot tub.

  8. Looks so amazing and wonderfully fun! Color us jealous!

  9. East Shore was the gym I went to in CHS and I loved it!! Body Pump and Body Attack were my favorite classes!

  10. It still hasn't snowed yet here--I'm hoping to have at least one good snow before spring hits!

    PS-- You've been tagged!

  11. Hi - I'm a new reader to your blog. I live in Knoxville, TN so we travel to the Boone area a lot to go snowboarding. Love it there! It's only about 3 hours from here so you can pretty easily do a day trip or make a weekend out of it. Hope you had fun!
