This past weekend, we had the perfect getaway to one of our favorite spots, the cabin in the woods. This time we met up with Katie & Travis with our pooches for a fun little weekend away.
B and I went in Friday night with Moz and grabbed some take out from a local joint, Pine Junction. We hung out and watched a romantic comedy (a rare occasion) and enjoyed our eats! The best decision about dinner was getting the Moose Balls. Chocolate covered peanut butter, SO good.
Saturday, Kates, Travis and Luna arrived and we took the pups for a walk before heading out to one of our second favorite spots – Southern Tier Brewery. We hung out and had some beverages and ordered some food… Well it was kind of a lot of food. And we finally got Pumking on draft, it’s so good, especially to kick off October. They also had some new Pumking flavors, a Cold Pressed Pumking and then Rum Barrel Aged Pumking. Woah. Not to mention Warlock and their other usual suspects. It was fun gossiping, talking wedding and sipping some beers with my bestie and our guys.
It was the perfect fall weekend away in the woods. It was rainy and cool so just asking for us to be lazy and staying in.
Happy October, everybody!
This past weekend B and I went crazy and took Thursday and Friday off to enjoy a long weekend, as I am sure I’ve mentioned before our weekend getaways have been the extent of any vacation we’ve had this year. So it was amazing waking up Thursday morning and not having to go into work and to realize it was the start of 3-consecutive Saturday’s!! I even did a happy dance when I got out of bed!
Thursday morning was perfect. We just relaxed, caught-up on laundry, blogging and even a few work emails. We have been hooked on American Horror Story, so we binge watched a few episodes too. Then we packed up and headed to the cabin in the woods… we were there by 3! Our main goal was to visit Southern Tier Brewery (again), made famous by Pumking (the reason we went). Ohh it’s so delicious especially when you can enjoy it straight from the draft where it was created. B and I enjoyed some Pumking and a few other tastings along with their yummy pretzel sticks and loaded chips.
We even got to say good-bye to Maya, my aunt’s black lab who passed away suddenly last month, they left her remains at the cabin and the pond where she loved to play, her happy place. It was nice to have a moment with her.
The next day we headed another 2-hours east to my parents for the rest of our long weekend. Birthday celebrations and even a wedding were thrown into the mix! It was a nice somewhat relaxing and low-key weekend. We got back early-ish on Sunday and enjoyed some company with B’s brother and also hosted our neighbors for some pizza and beer and chats! It was a nice long, much needed break!
How did you relax this weekend?
This past weekend B and I got out of town for a quick weekend getaway to the Cabin in the Woods. I grew up in the country, but even this place is a little bit in the middle of nowhere for me. I couldn’t even tell you where the closest gas station or grocery store would be, nor do you pass one on the way.
It’s always nice to get away to this little retreat, it’s so quiet and peaceful – but also extremely buggy. Plus it’s super close to one of our favorite breweries – Southern Tier, so of course we headed up there for the afternoon too. Tasty beers, great food and an awesome atmosphere – we stay for hours. We’ve made a yearly tradition out of it, but will definitely be going back before Summer’s end.
When we are back at the cabin we usually relax, and play board games (like Sorry!) and walk around the property with Moz. She was super fascinated with the frogs while we walked around the pond, every time they jumped in and made a splash she would get scared and then become super curious! It was so cute. We also visited a homemade ice cream shop in the nearby ‘town’ – massive portions, huge selection and so cheap!
It was a fun – quick weekend away. I love creating memories, and traditions with B, even if they’re simple.
