Two Things Tuesday

ONE: Travel. I have a mini trip coming up this weekend for the long weekend/Valentine’s Day (how nice is it that those two fall on the same weekend this year??) — the boy and I are headed up to Lake Placid for a 3-day, 2-night little jaunt to the north country. His family actually used to own the Mirror Lake Inn (I so wish they still did!), so I’m stoked to check that out, especially the apres ski bar called The Cottage, which just looks like the darlingest little winter lodge:

How sweet is that spot? Consider it’s supposed to be, like, no degrees, I think we’ll be more than ready to curl up by a fire and enjoy a drink.

We’re going during Saranac Lake’s Winter Carnival, which means there’ll be plenty of events going on nearby and a giant ice palace to traipse through and fireworks to see. This year’s theme is Superheroes & Villians — does that make anyone else want to dress up like Wonder Woman and sing the Beach Boys song? Anyone with me?

Thoughts of this little winter getaway are totally getting me through the week. We rented a half of a farmhouse right in town through Airbnb, which I think will work out well. C’mon, Friday, hurry on up!

TWO: Fitness fashion. I can’t stop with the fun leggings lately. I think my recent success with the Athleta tights has spurred the addiction back into full force. I’m currently awaiting the arrival of these little beauties from GapFit:

These are the gFast mesh-ribbon leggings, and I’m praying I like them on as much as I do online. Or on that girl’s legs. πŸ™‚

Anyone been to Lake Placid? If so, what are some of your fave spots?
