weekend review: Brian Head Resort

My parents got a cabin at a ski resort over the weekend for our family. I'd been looking forward to this trip ever since my parents told us about it! It was sooo nice to get away from the world for a weekend, snowboard, and enjoy family time! I am truly blessed to have such an amazing family!

10 points for whoever guesses who's in the picture with me :)
my mom almost broke her back taking this picture.. it HAD to be posted :)
I LOVE monopoly. But no one will ever play because it turns into such a long game :(  recipe for cheese ball (or log) here

Thanks Mom and Dad for a wonderful weekend!

Your pictures are amazing! That is so great you got to take a weekend to relax and snowboard with the family! You look like you had so much fun! I have a snow angel picture from when I went to Tahoe. I always have to make one :)

Love your pictures! I'm kind of jealous you have snow near you, we haven't seen snow yet this year besides a couple of light dustings. But it looks like you had a great weekend! :)

Christie Moss and Brenden said...

Looks like fun. You should get monopoly deal. It's really fun but not near as long so people will want to play. It is my favorite game right now:)

Looks like a great time! I was going to guess Alycia too, but it looks like a few people already beat me to it. (: I soooo miss the snow, but the beaches have been sunny this week so I can't complain. ;)

Happy Monday!

Alyx said...

Definitely gonna have to make that cheese log! I meant to get bacon this weekend for that one recipe, but I forgot!
Glad you had a good weekend!

eas said...

Aren't ski weekends the best? I love the first pic of you two and the snow angel!

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

Looks like a blast! I haven't been skiing in years. I want to go so bad. There is a ski "hill" across the river in Iowa, but that is NOT worth anyone's time.

Holly said...

Such an awesome weekend, for sure!

Jenna@The Life of the Wife said...

Never ever will I play Monopoly. I've played it ONCE..and never again! :)

Looks like such a fun-filled weekend! Do you ski or snowboard by the way?

Jenna

Shelley said...

I haven't been to the snow for like 4 years, lol. I love to ski though!

Liesl said...

This looks like too much for words!!! I just LOVE weekends away skiing, or snowboarding in your case, and getting to be at the little cabins and resorts...so wish I could have done that this year, but I feel like I did through your wonderful pictures! :)

Liesl said...

P.S. LOVE your new layout and your little welcome picture...ADORABLE!!! :)

So - I don't know who is in the picture with you so I will forfeit the 10 points but I hate losing.

And I also LOVE monopoly and NO ONE will play with me. It's a bummer.

Courtney! What a FUN time! I love all the pictures! I have never been to a really snowy place...much less snow skiing. :( It's on my wish list for sure. So happy that you got to have a carefree weekend. If I was there I would TOTALLY play a forever long game of Monopoly with you. :) I'm all about sticking it out 'til the end.

That first pic is my fave: my two favorite ski bunnies. :)

AND I LOVE THE NEW BLOG LAYOUT! SO SO PRETTY!!!!

Wishing you a very happy week ahead. xoxo

aniamaria said...

Jenn @ PSP said...

Am loving Eric's hat! GO BOSTON! Also, I am in awe of you, that you snowboard : ) We went snow tubing this weekend (i.e. sledding in pre-made lanes with rubber mats at the bottom to slow us down), and I was terrified of THAT before I did it! So yeah, maybe I can work my way up to the bunny slopes next time ; ) This looks like such fun, though, sounds like you enjoyed it!

So I usually catch up on blogs all at once about twice a week and let me just say, I always LOVE reading your blog! Anyways, I would totally play Monopoly with you! Josh and I love to play it and our games always last for hours because he'll always make deals with me when I'm about to lose! Looks like you had a great time!
