Fashion blogger and model Lauren Scruggs took her first vacation this weekend, a trip to Colorado with family and friends.

Injured model Lauren Scruggs, with twin sister Brittany (right), tweeted out these photos, the first she's shared since her accident in December.

In the first image, she poses with twin sister Brittany, both bundled up and wearing sunglasses. “Such a fun weekend with sweet family and friends,” she wrote of the trip. In a second tweeted photo, Lauren is with a big group of family and friends at a ski-jumping competition in Steamboat Springs, Colo. Lauren's hair covers her left eye and a jacket covers her left arm. Scruggs lost her left eye and hand when she walked into a moving plane propeller.
