On The Lake...

Woo-hoo! We've made it to the weekend ::high five::
This week felt long to me... anyone else? 

Billy and I will be doing a small road trip today to go to the cottage and spend the weekend on the lake. Excited is an understatement. I haven't seen Billy's brother, sister, and parents in what feels like a year (even though it's only been a couple months) and it's one of our favorite places to be. Being on the water is so relaxing and we have so much fun there spending time with family and being in the sun! Last night we picked up ingredients to make some killer sangria (what else is new?) and our favorite dip, so we are ready to hit the road! 

Expect a few (meaning many) instagram pics over the weekend.

{Speaking of Instagram, my girlfriend Ashley introduced me to StickyGram where you can turn your Instagram photos into magnets! So cool. I just ordered my first sheet.

  1. I completely agree about this week seeming long--every day I thought it was Friday.

    Maybe we both feel like that because we have similar weekend plans. Rob and I are heading to his family's lake house tomorrow and I can't wait to relax and get away for a couple of days.

    Happy Relaxing!!
