Snow. So much snow!
I'm clearly not talking about my neck of the woods since we've been SOL in that department. For instance, I drove past my favorite ski resort a few weekends ago only to see a bunch of brown dirt down the main run. What in the heck? If Mother Nature was a peacekeeper she'd bundle up some of that unwanted snow over on the east coast and deliver it to us westerners who look forward to skiing all year! It really bums me out. Not to mention, I would adore all of that snow you all have right outside my front door... I truly would. But alas, it's not meant to be.
What can I say? I just love a really cold winter. And so even though we didn't have the usual chilliness a couple weekends ago in Central Oregon, I still loved the annual trip to a city that shines during the winter months:
^Keep your friends close. Keep cabin-owning friends closer.
^Thankfully it's just people obsessed with their cats that get the bad rap, because I know I've reached an unhealthy level of compassion for this little one.
^Brewery, outdoor cold weather, college buddies, dog... can't complain.
^And here's a nice depiction of the winter we've been having. #WhyIsAllTheSnowEast
^Chandler & Bowser: Two Titans of 90s Pop Culture
^10 Barrel Brewery in Bend, Oregon. A delightful way to spend a Saturday.
^T-Shirts in January.
^Having him at the driving range was not the best plan. Tons of moving balls all over that he can't access... so that was fun.
^Our buddies & their adorable Puggle below.
^The outdoor patio at the brewery is riddled with dogs, Chandler made an equally-sized friend in this one.
^At the driving range trying this out. Spoiler alert: I am awful (as if you couldn't tell by the way I dressed to go there).
^After getting way too rowdy for this crowd with that other puppy, someone was in time-out from the ground for a little bit. I see Jay really minds the added weight.
^Cabins: Where dreams come true.
Happy Weekending, all!! I'm throwing my Sister's baby shower on Sunday so it's gonna be a busy one for me. :) Gotta usher that nephew into this world properly.
