Weekend of Firsts

Hal and I had a crazy weekend. It was so jam packed, and so many crazy things happened that I have dubbed it our "Weekend of Firsts". We tried a lot of things for the first time. Remember how I wanted to branch out and do new things? Well, this weekend we definitely held up this new goal.

First time going to crab fest:

If you look in the mirror you can see how many lights away we are from the mirrors. I surprised Hal with lunch at MarketStreet for Crabfest. Sadly we were not impressed at all. It was overpriced and none of us loved our food, and the service was awful. But, they do have amazing desserts, so go there for dessert, not for lunch. We didn't let that get us down though, and went on to another first.

First time staying at a B&B

We had such a lovely time there, we stated at Wildflowers b&b It was the cutest old house, and the two women who run it were so nice. One of them is an artist, so there is original art all over the house. And they had two dogs that I got to pet! Our room was beautifully decorated, and they made such a lovely breakfast for us. Oh, and it was my first time in a claw footed bath tub. Heck Yes!

It was also our first time double dating with my dad. It definitely wasn't as weird as I thought it would be.

The next day, it was my first time snowboarding, and Hal's first time teaching someone to snowboard.

I'll admit, I was a wimp. I misunderstood something Hal said about getting off of the ski lift, I made it about 2 feet off of the ski lift and then biffed it, hard core, like landed with my face in the snow, and have a swollen bruised knee to prove it. It took me forever to make it down the bunny hill(which is way bigger than a hill). By then Hal said his feet hurt so he wanted to go inside for a bit. This is when I wimped out and didn't want to go back out. Hal went back out for a little while and then we both wimped out. What? We were tired! Check this out though, we borrowed some snowpants from a friend's family...they were children's size 12 and I fit in them with layers underneath! Haha, I guess that's why I still fit in the child seat of the grocery shopping cart.
And lastly, On the way home we had our First time driving home in an unexpected blizzard. We got stuck in the resort parking lot, and thought the drive down the mountain was bad. We thought we were safe when we got to the base of the mountain and it was only raining. Uhhh a mere 15 minutes later, and on a very dark freeway we realized we were in the midst of a blizzard. It was blowing so hard, and the snow was so wet, and it was so dark. Both of us were on an adrenaline rush pretty much until we got home.

All in all, we had a fabulous weekend, and did so many new things, that I felt very adventurous. Now we just need to keep coming up with new things for us to try. Any suggestions?

I'm sorry the food wasn't great. That seems like it would have been good. That B&B looks like it was AWESOME!

Ha ha - what?! You fit in the seat of a grocery cart? I can totally see Hal picking you up and buckling you in, then shopping while wearing a mumu and sunglasses :)
Awesome weekend of 1sts! Maybe next time you could try cattle driving in Sandy! Like in City Slickers!
