bigbear5^^^When we arrived, this is how it looked.  Still Beautiful, but no snow.^^^


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We just returned from a 4 day trip to Big Bear, CA. We had a wonderful time with lots of good, fun, friends, and we even made some new ones.  All we were hoping for was to see a little snow,  and we got it.  Yay!  I know you east coasters probably think I’m nuts.

We rented a large home and all stayed together, it was perfect.  We cooked, acted silly, skied and snowboarded. This was my first time to Big Bear, and I really enjoyed it.  It was a 3 1/2 hours from Santa Barbara, so a pretty easy drive.

We went on this trip for a friends birthday, but as we were booking it we realized it will probably be our baby-moon too.  I’m taking one more solo trip home, for a baby shower, and then my travel is restricted.  Our little lady is going to be here in no time.  So excited!!!

Have a great week and I will be back here Wednesday with some midweek links.

    Thanks for sharing! Looks like all had a great time. Glad you got a little snow to see! I miss the forest, lodging, skiing…and the snow from time to time. Good for you all! 🙂

    We had a blast! Thanks again to our dear friend Sean who did a amazing job organizing and accomodating all of us. Thanks to James for dicing up a delicious chicken fajita feast for us on Saturday and Stephanie for inviting us to be a part of the Celebration! That’s the Good News.
