Photo an hour...or something close.

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Over the weekend Kevin and I drove up to a cute little cabin outside of Cook Forest to meet up with Ivan and Elycia. Elycia and I both took a photo an hour on Saturday. Mine isn't really complete but I'm going to have to blame it on a. having so much fun I really wasn't a diligent photo an hour taker & b. it getting dark so early that it's hard to take photos without flash. But without further ado here's mine...

7 am // Woke up bright and early Saturday morning to leave. It was frosty outside and there was a light dusting of snow on the ground, which was only our second or third so far this season!
8 am // Car ride reading material. I'm a big fan of long car rides, they're a great time to catch up on the books I want to read or uh, catch up on some sleep!
9 am // Pit stop in Erie to grab some daiya cheese for our dinner plans at the cabin. Of course we had to grab a cookie and some root beer.
10 am // I missed a photo! But truth be told, there was nothing interesting going on. It's a three hour drive to the cabin which consisted of snacking, reading and listening to "road trip music" as Kevin calls Everlong by The Foo Fighters! Hah! 
11 am // We arrived at the cabin! I was so pleased to see how adorable it was and that someone took the time to decorate for us!
12 pm // We had Roma Pizza for lunch before heading out on an adventure! (Thank you Ivan and Elycia!) You Canadians are lucky, this stuff is so so so tasty.
1 pm // We went on a wild goose chase for Clear Creek. Not exactly sure what we were supposed to find but it was a fun ride with lots of great conversation (about hillbillys and how we were probably going to be murdered).
2 pm // On the way back to the cabin we stopped off at this beautiful little area on the side of the road and snapped some photos.
 3 pm // After that we stopped again at another beautiful little area on the side of the road to get a group picture by a sign but my instax wasn't really cooperating so we had to take our group picture under a rock (that's why we're hunched over in that photo! ;))
And that's where my photos end! After we got back to the cabin we spend tons of time in the hot tub, ate delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, build a killer fort (don't know why Elycia is calling it "semi-successful", I'm clearly a skilled fort builder), played catch phrase and spent some more time in the hot tub!

You can find Elycia's photo an hour of the weekend here.

  12. Great pictures!!! I love how that cabin was designed. :D I would l-o-v-e to have cabin's of my own to design for people - Jen and I did that with some lodges on the lake, but we had to go by the company's standards. Meaning each lodge had the same thing, no creativity! :P

  15. Erie!? As in Erie, PA? That's where I live!! :) Where are you from?
    My family is originally from Hallton, PA which is near the area you camped, I believe. :) Small world.

  16. I loved the "picture an hour." I think I might do it once or twice!


    I was wondering what kind of products you use to keep your hair looking healthy.
    I know you've said you're not a hair dresser, but I recently used a color remover on my hair because I want it to be a silver/violet color and my hair is really dry and blonde right now. It always gets dry when it's blonde, but was never really dry when it's pink or any other color.

  21. p.s I totally think you should start snowshoeing! I just bought a pair for my bf and I (http://www.bigfootsnowshoes.com/ this site has a sale-they're not top of the line-but they'll do). I can see you and Kevin hiking and snowshoeing. I just hope we get some snow soon!
