A Wedding in the Snow!

Saturday our really good friends Rick and Jenn got married at Elkins Resort on Priest Lake. It was beautiful! And oh so cold but way more beautiful and fun! Saturday morning my Mom and Tom came by so Tom could finish my fireplace mantel! (YAY!!!) And so they could go shopping and watch Layla for the night. Around 11am Ben and I started the 2 hour trek to Priest Lake. This lake is amazing! Rumored to be so deep they’ve never found the bottom of it! Also rumored to have vacation homes to Tom Cruise and Ben Stein. Anyways it’s awesome!

The view at the lodge!
Once we got there we were happy to already see a lot of out friends out and about. We rented Cabin #4
·         3 Bedrooms: 3 Queen Beds, 1 Double Bed
  • Sleeps up to 8 people.
  • Creek side cabin
  • Fireplace
We shared the cabin with Becca, Toby, Russell and Joey. I literally walked in and my smile did not leave my face for days! It was so much fun! Once the rest of the group got there we started to pre funk and dance around the cabin!
The ceilings were SO short in this cabin! It was crazy! It made me feel tall!
The wedding was supposed to start at 4pm but really started around 5ish not a big deal at all. We were all having a great time! The wedding was so beautiful! I love it when the Groom cries; I think it is the sweetest thing! (Ben, for the record did not cry)
Lovely Bride!
After the wedding we enjoyed some amazing food and drinks, followed by some cabin hopping and a bon fire by the lake! An amazing night! A great little get away for everyone!

Lights @ Mainto

Friday night we went to Manito Park to see 30,000 lights! It was cool but left us wanting more. We thought the whole park was going to be covered with lights but they only had a green house that was decked out. It got us out of the 15 degree weather (holy burr) and we walked around some pretty lights:

(Excuse Layla's hair, it was up really cool before she went to school something must of happened to it though)

After that we drove down our Christmas Tree lane which... sucked! I thought it was a given that if you lived on a street called Christmas Tree Lane you had to go all out. Yeah not so much.  After that we went to dinner then home to clean. Saturday my Mom picked up Layla and Ben and I headed to Elkins Resort for a very beautiful winter wedding! More on that tomorrow…
