Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I was really excited when I got an e-mail yesterday from my boss saying that we could wear green to work today instead of the usual black. I thought this would be really fun until I realized that I don’t have a single piece of green activewear. So I’ll be wearing black, just like every day.
This weekend was spent up in Vermont visiting some family friends for a ski weekend. Friday night we enjoyed homemade pizzas in Bob’s brick oven. THE BEST! On Saturday the rain held off enough to get a great day of skiing in. The conditions were pretty good but man the slopes were crowded. At one point the trails were like a tsunami of skiers. We skied at Stowe and I couldn’t believe that ticket prices were 108.00! We didn’t pay that price but I’m sure lots of people on the slopes did. Unbelievable! After skiing on Saturday we visited a friend of Angus and went to see his new house that he built before coming back and relaxing by the fire with some wine. We also enjoyed this treat from Laughing Moon Chocolates in Stowe. A GIANT CARAMEL APPLE! I was in heaven.
On Sunday we went back to the mountain for another day of skiing. It snowed a few inches overnight so the conditions were awesome! Visibility was another story though. You couldn’t see ANYTHING at the top of the mountain! And it was windy. Very windy. We skied a half day before getting ready to head back to Maine. On our way out of town we stopped at the Laughing Moon Chocolate store that was recommended to us and got a few treats. Definitely stop there if you’re ever in the area! It is fabulous. Then we stopped at the Ben and Jerry’s factory. Just because. 🙂 We took a little detour through Portsmouth on the way home and had dinner at the Portsmouth Brewery to break up the drive. Luckily we arrived home just in time to squeeze the last episode of House of Cards season 3 before bed. Why is the best episode always the last in the season?!? I can’t wait for more 🙂
