Happy Monday. Hope you had a fantastic weekend. I was away in the mountains again for a ski weekend, although I did no skiing. It’s not really something I enjoy since I’m so terrible at it, so spending money for a lift ticket and possibly injuring myself just didn’t seem worthwhile. Here’s a recap of what I got up to instead.
Since I took Thursday off work, I was able to get up and head out for my long run before running some errands and packing up to leave for the ski trip.
The roads on the way to B.C. were pretty terrible. I had my eyes closed for a lot of the drive. Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving.
When we arrived at the cabin, drinks and hot tub to relax was necessary. We all planned to take the night pretty easy since everyone wanted to get on the hill early Friday morning. But somehow 2 a.m. rolled around and we hadn’t yet shut down the party.
While everyone went out skiing, I had a relaxing day. I did a little yoga, read and went for a walk to enjoy the mountains.
It was actually really peaceful. Sharing a house with 13 other people can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you’re an introvert. So having that alone time was exactly what I needed to recharge every day.
When everyone got back from the hill, it was of course time for the hot tub again.
Our friends had brought these things called Miracle Frooties which block your sour receptors, therefore turning sour food sweet. I had tried them once before and knew how amazing they were. Lemons taste like lemonade and sweet foods like strawberries taste even sweeter.
That night we played some games and called it an early night.
When everyone headed out skiing, I went out for a quick run. It was supposed to be a recovery run but when you’re running in the snow in the mountains, there isn’t such a thing. My calves were absolutely killing me after running all the hills but it was a great workout.
I met a couple of people on the ski hill for lunch and then headed back to the cabin for some more alone time. I was planning to head cross country skiing but my legs were pretty shot from my run and I honestly just didn’t feel like it.
Then it was time to get dressed up for the Rubik’s cube party. Everyone has to have 6 items of coloured clothing (the colours of the Rubik’s cube), then the object is to swap clothes until you are all one colour.
We headed to another cabin where the party was being hosted. The rule was we had to wait for a certain time to start doing any clothing trades. It gave you time to scope out what you wanted to take and my frog slippers were highly sought after. Because I was wearing blue pants and was not about to give away my pants or take off my pants at a party, I knew that’s the colour I was going for.
Once the trades started, it took probably 5 minutes for the entire house to change colour. It was quite amazing actually. We then took a bunch of group photos.
And what would a ski trip be without some shot skis?
Then we took to the upstairs for a dance party and danced the night away before heading back to our cabin for some late night snacks.
Pretty uneventful day. Cleaned up the cabin and drove the 3.5 hour drive home. Tom was pretty hungover so it was mostly a sit on the couch sort of day. We watched Inside Out which is such a cute movie! I didn’t make it to the gym for my leg workout. I don’t get hungover so I felt fine but I was just tired and decided an extra rest day wouldn’t be the end of the world.
Overall, it was a great weekend. I loved being back in the mountains and in the company of great friends.
What’s the best theme party you’ve been to?
