neener neener neener

As much as I'd love to leave that embarrassing story about my sister up on my blog forever, I just have to gloat that we are going up to Priest Lake this weekend! Priest Lake is an impossibly beautiful and unspoiled mountain lake in N. Idaho. We are staying at Elkins Resort which is one of those old log-cabin resorts built in the 50s and it hasn't changed much. Except the cabins have been updated and the restaurant serves fantastic food. The dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake, and there are hummingbird feeders all around the eves, every couple of feet. It's the kind of place where you walk to the little store barefoot and get an icecream sandwhich and then go sit on the tree-stump bench and enjoy the view. It's so lovely. Priest Lake is known for its Huckleberries; the resaurant serves Huckleberry Blintzes. Huckleberry Blintzes, people. Is it wrong to have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I think not.

Last year David and I went on Mother's Day weekend; due to our schedule Anna was with her dad that weekend and I wanted to be anywhere but home feeling sorry for myself. But we had such a nice time that I told all my friends and now Mother's Day weekend at Priest Lake is going to be one of our new traditions. Christina and her girls are coming (not her hubby; he's busy shooting Johnnie Depp's new movie...hhmmpph. I told them that Johnnie could come too...) and Nichole and her family are coming from Seattle.

I am so excited!!! I'll take photos and post on Monday. Happy weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY everyone!!

Pristine, natural, a mountain lake and retreat as it should be. The cabins look inviting, the lodge----comfy and homey, beautiful.
Have a fabulous Mothers Day ! Enjoy ! love you .
