Weekend Round Up – Cottage Edition

This past weekend my husband and I head up to the mountains for some cottage time with a group of friends. Friends of friends of ours organized a trip to a gigantic log cabin in the hills of Tremblant.  The cottage was amazing and complete with more than enough sitting, a hot tub and a kitchen that anyone that likes to cook would want.

My husband went golfing with some of the other men that came up for the weekend, where as I did my best to fill my days with reading, taking in the country air and just overall relaxing.  Also at some point in there I became the baby whisperer and got a cutie to fall asleep on me. (I am actually by no means a baby whisperer the little one had just had a big day and happened to pass out in my arms)

Our second day there we decided to head down to the lake and sit on the dock for a bit, however the weather had different plans.  After a few minutes of saving our things (not so successfully) from being blown into the lake we decided that maybe we should head over to the pool for a bit more shelter from the wind.

During the weekend we also had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday (with this delicious homemade gluten free cake) and some ridiculous firework like candles.   We also each were able to enjoy delicious BBQ’ed meals, roasted veggies, and a tasty mix of salads.

So all in all I would say the weekend was pretty great, even if I didn’t lace up my shoes and head out on a mountain run. I am happy that I had the chance to get caught up on some reading, brainstorming, and relaxation.

Sunday my husband and I woke up early to head back into town before the farmer’s market closed for the day.  It had been a while since I have actually been able to get to the farmer’s market with all the visiting, camping and being out of town on the weekend, so I was happy to wake up a bit earlier so I could enjoy my outdoor grocery shopping.

All-in-all I would say this weekend was pretty successful.

I hope you all had great weekends filled with wonderful weather, smiling friends, and a touch of rest. 

Happy Monday everyone!
