Surrounded by friends and looking like she's enjoying herself, Lauren Scruggs posed for pictures while on her first vacation since her December accident.

The model and fashion blogger, 23, Tweeted the photos – taken in Steamboat Springs, Colo. – last Saturday. (On Tuesday, she Tweeted the message, "Happy Valentine's Day!!")

The weekend marked the first time Scruggs has shared photos of herself since the incident that cost her her left eye and hand, notes the Today show.

"Such a fun weekend with family and friends :)" she Tweeted. Another shot shows her and twin sister Brittany dressed for the weather and sporting sunglasses. Lauren's shades cover the prosthetic eye she received about two weeks ago.

Later, she Tweeted: "Watching ski jumping!! Love it."
