Wednesday night after some major snowfall--and getting stuck with my car being plowed in--and this massive snowball.
Thursday morning gym sesh--so unmotivated, but got it in.
After the gym, Marco and I went shopping for some snowboard boots for me and I ended up picking up this red Burton 'Sapphire' model.
That evening was a turkey dinner with a ton of friends. Everyone brought a dish--I made my Grammy's sweedish potatoes which were a huge hit--and it was a really fun evening.
On Friday, after doing some Black Friday shopping, finishing packing, we finally hit the road in the afternoon. Since I clogged our weekend, at one point we were playing a silly game (similar to the 1-2-3 tag) to pass the time, which I caught on video:
Outfit deets: Bench jacket, H&M pants, Spring boots & headband, Club Monaco scarf, Ardene mitts & Aldo cross-body/clutch.
After dinner, I said hello to you all and then we relaxed with a movie. Our one-bedroom suite was really quaint and cottage-y; I liked having the fire place on anytime we were there (why not!?).
Outfit deets: TNA jacket (old), Aeropostale scarf, Sirens leggings & Spring boots.
On Saturday morning, after being unable to get a hot breakfast at our hotel, we headed out of the village towards McDonalds for breakfast. We instead ended up stumbling upon l'Arome cafe--thank you Urbanspoon--and had a delicious breakfast with the most amazing home-made mango-peach jam…
…and were able to purchase a jar of it! They make it in house and sell it, which I'm so excited about--I don't even eat jam at home normally but I will now!
We got back to our hotel, changed and then it was time to hit the slopes! Here I am at the top of Mont Tremblant:
I hadn't been snowboarding in several years and was quite apprehensive when we first got to the top--however, like riding a bike, after the first couple runs (which took a while), I got a bit of a groove back and started to feel more comfortable (despite numb feet and sore quads).
Later that evening, we headed out to the Mont Tremblant casino to dine at Altitude--a fine dining restaurant with a beautiful setting…
Outfit deets: H&M dress (new!), Sirens leggings, Expressions by The Bay necklace, Aldo boots & clutch.
Unfortunately, we ended up having a terrible experience with over cooked food and a smirking manager. They had to bring my beef tartar three times before the poached egg on top was done right and by the time I got to my steak I had ordered rare and it was done medium-well, it was pretty frustrating. I definitely wouldn't recommend the spot and we were really, really looking forward to it, sadly.
On Sunday morning we over slept and rushed around to finish filming my upcoming Holiday Lookbook for Place d'Orleans. I instagrammed a photo of this dress in the fitting room and yep, she came home with me!
Outfit deets: Le Chateau dress.
On our way home, we stopped at l'Arome cafe again for breakfast as my insistence.
We ended up ordering Chinese food on Sunday evening when we got home--finish the weekend right… right?--and I spent hours editing my video.
And finally, ending the weekend on a super sweet note: Marco got me an iPhone 5S--yipee! We set it up so I could start using this gold 32GB beauty. My previous iPhone 5 was 16GB and had no space left because I hate erasing my photos off of it. That said, I reserved this 5S over two months ago and that's how long it took for it to come--nutso, I know. Hoorah to it finally being here.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
