Did this week fly by for anyone else? I can’t believe it’s Friday already! This week’s favorites include, but are not limited to, a fun winter getaway (seems fitting since it’s actually going to feel like winter this weekend!), a website, and shoes. Interested? Read on!
I decided to learn how to ski on a whim three years ago, and this year I discovered a hidden gem in Macungie, PA called Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Maybe you’ve heard of it? The resort is home to a hotel, lodge, 21 trails, a learning center, and plenty more. I love that it’s close enough to go for a quick day trip where you get to ski or snowboard down the mountain countless times because you hardly ever have to wait in line to go up on one of the four lifts. However, because of the hotel, you can easily turn your day trip into an overnight stay. Check out this $95 deal for a winter getaway that includes your hotel room, lift tickets, and complimentary tubing for one night (almost two full days) of winter goodness between Sunday and Thursday.
Have you ever visited the Welcome Home Blog? I can’t even talk about that site because each surprise military homecoming video tends to make me cry. Although I wasn’t crying when I discovered Ring On the Finger, which happens to be part of the same blogging group as the WHB so you already know it’s a fun site, I was still just as excited. Ring on the Finger is filled with videos of marriage proposals. Count me in as a viewer!
Favorite accessory to carry down the aisle:
As I mentioned in this post, pomanders are a sweet accessory for any flower girl to carry down the aisle, while a ring bowl is the perfect solution for your ring bearer. Don’t forget that this Etsy option can be customized with the Liberty Bell, which is a great hometown touch for a Philly wedding or one that is inspired by the City of Brotherly Love.
Fun fact – I love creating mix CDs for friends and family. Call me crazy, but I love the feeling that comes along with picking out the perfect selection of songs and putting them into a fun order that I know the other person will enjoy. As a result, when I read about this couple, I immediately became enthralled with their favor idea: mix CDs of songs they traded back and forth while dating. Didn’t trade songs? Put together a mix of both of your favorite songs in general. It’s a great favor idea because guests can use your gift to them immediately and listen to the CDs on their way home. You can find labels here, and Etsy is a great source for CD sleeves.
Heals are beautiful to look at and dream about; however, they are not always so comfortable to wear. My solution? Wear TOMS for your entire wedding day or just for your reception! I absolutely love them because they are so comfortable (just make sure to break them in before your wedding), and they allow you to give back to kids in need. I came across the crochet pair pictured above this week, but this pair is also perfect for when you tie the knot.
Are you planning a winter activity for this weekend? Whatever your plans are, enjoy!
