Snow On Flashback Friday


Well, it's Friday and the weather is not cooperating. At this time of year, HM and I should be enjoying or breakfast al fresco on Finn's patio, but instead we are forced to enjoy our Friday tradition of coffee and foods inside the cozy restaurant. Not the worst thing in the world, but I thought spring was here already here!

As I sat inside eating my breakfast and starring out at the snow, I thought about the most fun I have ever had in the snow. A couple winters ago, we celebrated a friends birthday by snowshoeing out to a yurt and enjoying a gourmet meal.

This is the yurt. Fancy huh?
This was early into our relationship. It was before HM started accepting fashion advice from me. If he looks cold in the picture below, it is because he is not dressed appropriately. This was before he started buying proper outerwear.

Once in the tent, our group pretty much took over the whole place. I remember it holding about 40 people and more than half was with our birthday group. A chef cooked all the food for us. We were told that any alcohol we wanted had to be packed in ourselves. Everyone brought their own bottle or two- so yeah, there was plenty of vino. Things got loud.

loud and crazy
To this day, I still don't know how we managed to get our snowshoes back on and hike back to the lodge after dinner without losing anyone. Although there was that one guy who I have not seen since......just kidding sweets.

So yeah, snow can be fun....I guess, but that does not mean I am happy about the forecast. Quit messing with me spring!! I have a race to run in 8 days and I need your cooperation!
