Our Hocking Hills Getaway Weekend

Hello, everyone! How has your weekend been?! Ours has been amazing! We stayed at a cabin in the beautiful Hocking Hills (in Ohio). If you ever get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it. It is full of gorgeous cabins and amazing hiking. Not to mention an adorable winery. Here is my recap of our trip!

FRIDAY:

After work, my husband and I packed up, then hit Kroger for food and firewood. We had about an hour drive to get to our place. The cabin was absolutely perfect! It was so cozy and had a fire place, hot tub, grill, and beautiful views!

The first thing we did was unpack and look around. Soon after, I made a drink and sat in the hot tub while my husband cooked dinner.

Grilled chicken, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and a salad kit! Yum!!

After dinner, we sat in the hot tub until we were tired and went to bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up and made a pot of coffee and waffles for breakfast.

After breakfast, we enjoyed the stunning views from the back deck.

We played board games in front of the fire for a while and had so much fun.

I was on a losing streak all weekend haha.

I went for a 20 minute run before having a quick lunch in the cabin.

After lunch, we set off to go hiking! We went on two different trails. Our weather was nice and sunny. The trails were full of beautiful ice formations.

Once we finished our hikes, we came back to the cabin and made a snowman. Cute, right?!

When we were finished outside, we had some snacks and watched a movie by the fire.

Meat and cheese plate, plus smores! Yum!!!! Hiking made us super hungry.

I like my marshmallows burnt haha!! The other one had a banana on it. So good!

Once our movie finished, we had some drinks and made dinner! Salmon, shrimp, and rice!

After dinner, we sat in the hot tub until we were too hot. Then we played more board games until bed. What a fun day!!

SUNDAY:

I woke up early and made a pot of coffee and read until my husband woke up. We sat in the hot tub one last time!

We cleaned the cabin before heading home.

Now we are relaxing with our kitties! I missed them. I need to go to the store, but that can wait a little longer!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day!

With love,

Carly

Lake Games

Hi there, everyone!! I hope your weekend has been great! It has been pretty windy at the lake, but still nice. One of my favorite things about being here is putting down the technology for a while and playing games. Games, boating, tubing, and sunbathing are what our days typically consist of when we are here. The evenings are cards and other drinking games.  

Before I tell you about the games, I just have to share a picture of me and my husband! Yes, we are in matching bro tanks.

Now, onto the games!

 YARD PONG: Played like beer pong, but with buckets. 

HILBILLY GOLF OR “TESTICLE TOSS:” This game is hilarious. Teammates stand on opposite sides and try to make their balls land on the stand. Red is 3 points, yellow is 2, and blue is 1. First one to 21 wins.

CORNHOLE: A midwest favorite! The goal is to throw a beanbag into the hole on the board. Landing on the board gets you points as well, just less. We love this game!!

DRINKING GAMES: The one below is Kings. We play a ton of card games in the evenings.

There you have it! There are definitely more, but I just picked a few to share.

 What are some of your favorite games to play?! Please let me know!

Have a wonderful day!

With love, 

Carly
