Snowcap Recap...

So, I survived my birthday weekend. Survived, meaning, we had a horrific snowstorm, and we were in the middle of Amish Country, where they have hills and valleys, and horses to get you where you need to go. Wasn't the easiest thing to do, drive home in the snowstorm. What am I saying? I didn't drive, manfriend drove us. He said my tires suck, and we had a hard time getting up some hills. Worse yet, when we got back to my house on Sunday...it took 5 people and about an hour to get up my driveway.
You know what though? I'll take a handful of these shitty ass storms over sweltering heat any day. I really don't mind them much at all.

The cabin was super nice! Everything was clean, and well taken care of! We had some beers Friday night and watched a movie all snug as bugs by the fireplace! There was a cute cat outside that kept us company for smoke breaks. Cats=just like home!
We got up far too early Saturday, but it was a good thing cus we were able to hit the flea market, and the winery and make it back to the cabin by about 7. The man is quite a skilled driver, I must say. I wasn't nervous at all, and trust me, it was freaking BAD out there. We wished we had a horse and buggy like the amish, they were trucking on past us!
The snow does make for some fun, like snowball fights. And I made a little snowman on the porch at the cabin. He melted the next day though.

Manfriend got me some delicious wine, strawberry and red raspberry. Which is like, if you could drink jelly, and it got you drunk, that's how yummy and sweet it was. Deee-lissssh! We made breakfast for dinner, it was a treat, that he cooked in the nude....I quite enjoyed it, like my own little Bday suprise!

Saturday night I lit 25 tea lights in the bathroom around the jacuzzi and we hopped in and had some wine and relaxed. Not long after that, the man passed out on the couch. It was a stressful drive, and we ate a lot, and drank.
Yesterday it snowed some more, and we went shopping. The man stayed with me since the storm headed to his house, and it was bad. I got to spend THREE nights with him. *squeal* I liked it an awful lot!
I loved getting away for a couple nights. I wish I had longer to go, but theres always another time, right?

Here's the fireplace

The bed we slept in. Didn't get one of it made up.

I'm so romantic

Winery. And snow. This wine is delicious!
