A Weekend Getaway

The boyfriend and I went on a weekend getaway this past weekend. His family owns a hunting cabin and we decided to go up there and spend the weekend.

I didn't know what to expect at first seeing as how the boyfriend kinda scared me by his use of terms (i.e. cold, extremely cold, lots and lots of snow, outhouse) those were just to name a few. I had never been to the cabin so I wasn't sure and he wasn't helping by scaring me with those kinds of words. I mean Outhouse is going to kinda scare any girl.

Surprisingly the weekend was fabulous and oh so fun! The cabin was pretty awesome and had lots of room and the outhouse was actually not to bad. Okay it was not fun going in -2 degree temperature but still it wasn't horrible.

We left on Friday and starting driving and we stopped at the boyfriend's college town to visit his friends and we had a drink with them and caught up with them and then drove some more and finally made it to the cabin at 1 AM!! First off let me say this cabin is in the middle of nowhere and there is no light so it was so crazy dark and was extremely cold. There was about a foot or so of snow and it was crazy. We gathered all of our suitcases and such in and loaded into the cabin in freezing temperatures and got the heat on and the electricity on. We finally went to sleep at 3 AM and woke up the next day and went up a HUGE and I mean HUGE mountain (it took about 45 mins just to get up the mountain) and went sledding. It was so completely fun!! We went up the mountain about 4 times during the weekend to go sledding and I had a blast. We both felt like such kids but it was such a good stress reliever and I haven't had that much fun in god knows how long. I burned a lot of calories this past weekend was such a good thing seeing as how I have not really cared what I have eaten in about 2 weeks.

I'm not going to bore you with all the details of the trip but lets just say it was such a fabulous great relaxing time alone with the boyfriend and I. It was so nice just to be with him and only him no other distractions just him and I having fun. I fell deeper in love with him and feel like we share a stronger bond.

Can't wait to go back in the spring so we can actually hike in warm weather!!
