I’m switching gears today. Rather than focusing solely on style & outfit inspiration, or what local event I’m heading to, I’m incorporating the most important part of my life, my family. This past weekend the hubs & I took our little man to Oglebay, a family friendly resort in West Virginia. Creating holiday traditions as a threesome is important to us which is what made this trip so special.
After we arrived at the resort & got settled into our rustic-inspired room we stopped by the lodge’s bar & grille for a quick bite, and a glass of vino for this mamma bear 😉 It didn’t take long before little man saw the pool & insisted we go for a swim. This boy loves to swim & we love to relax in the hot tub, so it was a win-win!
At dusk we hopped into the car & headed to the Winter Carnival that consisted of a hay maze, hot chocolate & a wagon ride through beautifully lit Christmas lights. We were graced with an unseasonably warm evening which only required lightweight layering pieces like this pink bomber jacket I snagged from TJ Maxx & little man’s new fleece from Target.
Afterwards, we went on to enjoy the Festival of Lights which is a 6 mile driving tour of light displays. Unfortunately, due to poor planning on our part, the trolley tour was completely booked so we had to drive through the park ourselves. We also wanted to take little man to meet Santa’s reindeer, but again reservations were booked – there’s always next year!
Overall, we had a great time & cannot wait to go back next year. Of course, little man said his favorite part was the pool but if you ask me it was playing board games by the fire while listening to a live blue grass band & sipping vino. Making memories & creating new traditions with my boys makes my heart so full!
The cozy cardigan I’m wearing above is from Stitch Fix & is by far my favorite cold weather layering piece. It’s from two winters ago but we have similar styles at great prices right now! If you haven’t booked your Fix yet, be sure to do so; I’ve included a link for $25 off your 1st Fix too.
As always – comfortable & effortless housewife style xoxx
