Happy February from our winter get away!

February 1st, 2016 at 08:42 am

I am currently on day 4 of a 5 day vacation to the winter resort that we try to visit each year with our friends. We are renting a cute house, and when we split the cost, it is about $100 per night per couple. Not bad for a wonderful winter get away.

We have ate most meals here at the house, which saves money and allows more time to visit and enjoy the hot tub!

The guys really wanted to see a couple of movies so those are our splurge. We saw The Revenent on Saturday. None of us had ever seen an imax movie, so we decided to try it. Disappointing. I couldn't really tell a difference for the $17.10 per ticket (ouch)

Today, we are going to see 13 Hours. We will see regular movie and go to the 3pm matinee.

My next time off from work isn't until our camping trip in May, so I am really trying to make this trip DOWN TIME.

The hub heads back to Alaska in 2 days. I haven't been as diligent with my goals while hes been home, so I am eager to get back into full swing this week.

Next weekend, I plan to revisit all of our bills and see if there are any I can shave and save. I try to do this once a year. Usually I find at least one or two things that help.

Well, back at relaxing. Happy February everyone!

    That is awesome winter getaway. You live in Alaska? I hope then this will sustain you until spring.

    Livingalmostlarge: We live in Oregon. The Hub works in Alaska. Where we live, it doesn't snow much, so getting away to the snow for me is fun, not as exciting for the hub, but this annual trip is great fun for all of us.

    sounds wonderful! where did you vacation?

    Other than the fact that Imax wasn't worth it, did you like The Revenent? Hubby wants to see it, but it's SO expensive, even for a regular ticket. I'd rather wait until it's out on fios.

    Glad you had an enjoyable time!

    Livingalmostlarge- we stayed at a resort called Sunriver. Such fun!

    mjrube94 - it was not my favorite movie. Ratings are good- but wasn't for me. :/ If I was making the decision again, I would wait for it to come out on DVD...

    Thanks Laura!
