Omni Bedford Springs

Way back in December, I purchased two Groupon coupons for the Omni Bedford Springs Resort for me and my sweetie to have a little getaway. Life got in the way for literally four months, and the coupon was set to expire on April 3oth. So in mid-March, I finally got around to making our reservations. As luck would have it (or procrastination) there were no weekends with two nights available. So on Friday we headed to Bedford Springs Resort for one of our getaway nights. Friday was a fairly beautiful day in the 'burgh, and we thought we'd be able to go hiking. Again, as life gets in the way, Jason had to work a lot of the day so we got a later start than we expected. But it was still a very lovely ride together and we arrived after 5 pm.
We checked in, got stuff situated in our rooms, and checked out the place. Wow, it's fantastic! The outside is beautiful and the inside boasts several restaurants, an indoor mineral pool, spa, and much more.
We stopped in the tavern for a beer and the hockey game. They don't get FSN, so we ventured out to Everett, PA to the Union Hotel. They have a basement sports bar and they had the hockey game on and nicely priced pitchers of Yuengling! We had a very nice time together, and went to bed with plans to go hiking on Saturday.
This was our view out the Tavern window on Saturday morning. You can't really see it in the picture, but it's raining sideways! It was cold and windy. So we relaxed a bit over lunch, and went on our way. We stopped in the town of Bedford for some antique browsing. We wound our way home the long way and stopped at a very large nursery full of regular AND unusual plants. I got this lovely little orchid!

Winding our way home, we stopped at a Lowe's to purchase a plant pot for a palm I have. When we got out of the car, we saw this double rainbow! All in all, we had a fantastic time and can't wait to to back to Bedford for the second night of our getaway! We have plans to return in the summer when we can take advantage of all they have to offer, including hiking and trap shooting!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!

These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
