Last weekend I went snowboarding in Whistler. Besides the odd hike or jog, Snowboarding is the only outdoorsy thing I really do. So, every year I make a point of getting up on the mountain as much as possible. This weekend we got chairlift chatting with someone from Norway who had come all the way to Whistler for a week, just to ski. I can’t help but feel lucky we have a place like this so close to home. This season I found a brand new snowboard on Craigslist. It’s been one my best purchases of 2012 thus far (in second would have to be my LuLu Lemon leggings, so comfy and perfect for under snow pants).

The view is sooo breathtaking. I got contact lenses this year just so I could see properly while snowboarding. I took some photos on my iPhone to post, but the quality of these photos in comparison to my Nikon cameras makes me cringe. Every time I’m on the mountain I try to imagine different ways I could safely make it to the top and back down with all my camera gear intact. Something tells me that could end very badly.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a great weekend planned. I’m off to Seattle with some friends and am looking forward to sharing some shopping adventures with you!
