We spent our second day of skiing on the California Lodge side of Heavenly. It is just stunning!
The W twins were in ski school, Honey and our boys spent the day skiing together, Stacey’s husband skied solo, and the two of us found our favorite green of all time. (“All time” being the 5 total days we’ve skied together in our life.)
We all met up for lunch at the lodge. Their bloody mary’s couldn’t hold a candle to those at Tamarack yesterday. You know, this is how I rate and rank a ski resort…
Stacey and I tend to get ourselves into precarious situations when left to our own devices, and today was no exception. We nearly found ourselves propelled into the moguls under the lift when we got tangled up in each others skis and lost Stacey’s pole. We laugh so hard about these situations that we cry, and when we retell them to the men they just shake their heads trying to understand HOW these things happen.
With all of the men and kids occupied, we started our apres ski much earlier today at Fire & Ice, and tried the spiked apple cider at the recommendation of another guest. Yum!!
Oh, and we finally tried Heavenly Donuts. They were, in fact, heavenly.
We decided to have dinner back at the house because everyone was exhausted. The kids went to bed, the adults played some spades, and the men hit the casino. Life is good.
DIXIE DELIGHTS DELIVERED
We were up bright and early for our first day on the slopes! After bringing in eight feet of snow, the winter storm that made getting here so dicey was finally gone. We dropped the four kids at ski school and the adults took the gondola to base camp on the Tamarack Lodge side of… Read More
We were up bright and early (thank you East coast time) and were back on the road at 6:45 AM to try to make it to Tahoe. The totals for this winter storm are coming in at over 8 FEET of snow! The drive was slow and steady and like being in the middle of… Read More
It’s winter break here in Georgia and we are traveling out West to ski with the W family! It was one of those loooong travel days where the alarm was blaring at 5AM. After a layover in Dallas, we finally made it to Sacramento! From here we picked up our rental cars and were on… Read More
CeeCee loves all things girly, so for her last birthday I was so excited to get her an old-school style Caboodle! I had a pink one back in the day – decorated with paint pens and filled with all sorts of early 90’s makeup treasures. I used my Cricut to add a bright pink monogram… Read More
I’m not going to lie, much of Valentine’s Day went off like every other day. Haha! Whit did enjoy festivities at school but for the rest of us it was business as usual. In addition to the usual work and carpool duties, my monthly volunteer shift up in the middle school front office was today… Read More
When I was unpacking the one, sole Valentine’s tub, I realized that I had a whole stack of these “have a colorful Valentine’s day” left over from last year. Rather than reinventing the wheel, Whit was completely on board with using these tags again and giving his class colorful pencils with fun eraser tops. I… Read More
