Pink

So last Tuesday, Steph decided to get a little wild and add a pink streak to her hair. It looked really cool, and because I've NEVER done anything crazy to my hair I thought, what the heck - sure!



Sorry for the kind of gross picture I took yesterday morning before work...

Weekend Recap

This past weekend was a blast! Went snowboarding at Loon - which was absolutely amazing. I have never been on such awesome trails before - only rinky dinky mountains like Liberty and Round top, which in comparison were just little hills as opposed to entire mountain sides.

I've never liked snowboarding with goggles - feels too much like swimming, so I don't use them. However after this past weekend, I am in desperate need of them asap. It was so cold that at one point, my eyes were watering so badly that I had to stop in the middle of the mountain to take little pieces of ice off my eye lashes! Crazy huh?

Overall weekend was amazing, I did feel a little bad because N, S and R were such good snowboarders/skiers that I was definitely holding them up a bit. And the only down side was that when I got home on Sunday night, I realized I had lost my wallet somewhere at Loon. I actually know where I left it - at the bar area. I decided after the ice issue that I had had enough, so I went inside to warm up and treat myself to a bloody mary. I got a bloody mary and sat down with wallet in hand. Then I went to put it in my pocket - but I must have actually put it in the zipper part where it is not a pocket but under your arm for ventilation - or whatever? So I must have stood up and out goes my wallet. Total bummer.

So I picked up this bad boy yesterday at Michael Kors (actually got it in black):

Snowboarding!

Its snowing again in Boston, calling for 4-6 inches. I don't mind the snow, just please don't let there be freezing rain!

I'm super excited, this weekend I'm going up to New Hampshire to go snowboarding! I've actually never been outside the Boston area (minus mhead), so I'm super excited to go on an actual mountain. Considering my experience with snowboarding is of the teeny tiny ice covered mountains in PA, I think I'm in for a real treat!

Where: Loon Mountain - good god, it says there are 53 open trails. Someone actually told me yesterday that this mountain is known for their snowboarding parks - uh I dont do snowboarding parks - really terrain parks? Jumps? Half pipes - yea right. I'm just hoping to get down the mountain in one piece.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Spain

My little sister has made it safely to Spain over the weekend where she will be studying abroad for 6 months. I couldn't be more excited for her, especially because I've just booked my ticket to go over and visit her! Her school is located right on the Mediterranean Sea, with palm trees and beaches everywhere!

A few snap shots from Google:





Get ready LL - Mom, Kath and I are coming over!
