Fishing: pink hat & sweats

Ahhhhhhhh! Sigh of relief.

Though the summer weekends have been insane (as they always are for everyone it seems), it's nice to spend part of it up at a cabin.

In case you need a refresher: my Dad owns a cabin up in Washington state and the ability that I have to run up there for a quick vacation is never lost on me. My Dad is hard motherf'er worker and worked his whole life for this and we're very luck to reep the fruits of his labor. On top of that, my Dad spent his formative years in Montana so he is an outdoorsy boy til the end of his days. He's the best person to line you up with all the outdoors has to offer.

Anyway, on Saturday- The Boy, my brother and I rolled North to Washington for a weekend of fishing, swimming, wine, boating, tubing, wakeboarding, fishing and food. And... I love, love, love my makeup and heels but I will admit that sometimes it's nice to not wear makeup, sport sweatpants and head off for the day in disgusting flip-flops. But my words mean nothing (and I'm tired) so here's some pics of the beautilfulness of the wilderness.

In contrast to my weekend... my week will probably suck. It's going to be busy, busy at work. However, my birthday is on Sunday and though I am not loving turning 26... I appreciate a birthweek.

Happy Montag!

I always love your pictures, they are so perfect !!! Your picture with your dad looks awesome..may you have a great time always, god bless :)

Leia said...

Listen, Miss C. This is NOT cool. I mean, how, how, HOW do you manage to look JUST as amazing when wearing sweats as you do when you're all dressed up?

Hehe, jokes aside, I really love the fact that you can be both girly and glam as well as outdoorsy all at once. Not very many girls can do both!
