And it was because we were headed to the spa.
Le Scandinave Spa at Blue Mountain in Collingwood, Ontario!
It's about 2 hours north of Toronto.
So we loaded up a car load of girls from my sorority alumni and headed north.
And it was amazing!
The sequence of what you're supposed to do is HOT THERAPY (hot tub/steam room/sauna).

|The Eucalyptus Steam Room pic from the official website.|
And finally follow that with relaxing in one of the relaxation rooms or outdoor fireplace.
And simply repeat as much as you like.
It was pretty busy...and just gorgeous.
I would love to take some of my Texas girls (like Taylor and PinkSunDrops) to experience this because I'm guessing they haven't done anything like this.
|These were two of the hot pools...you can see where you hang the robes and towels.|
|The snow covered roof to the left of the silo housed one of the relaxation rooms. The silver silo was a Eucalyptus steam room. The pool to the right was one of the cold plunge pools 55F.|
|Hard to tell but there is a fire pit at the top of the picture surrounded by Muskoka/Adirondack chairs.|

After that we had a quick snack of fruit/cheese/crackers before heading back to Toronto.
Laurel invited me out for dinner with her fiance and B so I joined.
We went to The Works Burger Bar.

And I would go back.
However I get that they were trying to do something different with their glasses but I didn't love the measuring cup idea.
After a full on spa day (and I think it's quite hilarious that we finished it with burgers lol how healthy!)
I was beat and just headed home to relax.
A simply great Saturday!
