[Surprise Weekend Getaway – Tahoe, CA]

November 30, 2016

I’d been hounding Ben for days to let me know if we could take advantage of a deal I’d found since we have so few free weekends. He refused to give me an answer and so of course, I kept pushing. Answer: Surprise! (our mutual friend) Paul and I have planned a surprise trip to Tahoe. Oops. Pictures Below. This is a very belated post from all the holiday travels but more to come!

We stayed at a very cute, cabin airbnb that cost far less than our apartment and made me consider just moving to Tahoe full time. Since we had the cabin for the weekend we opted to cook, watch Harry Potter movies and stay in more than we went out. We stayed near Truckee and loved our little neighborhood.

As you can see Charlie is immobilized once in this sweater. She sat patiently, never begging us for food.

We decided to leave the house and go on a hike. Unfortunately, our awesome hike was roadblocked so we stopped to take pictures instead.

Finally, we attempted to hike ,but, it of course was very cold and we, being Californians, were totally unprepared. We ended up going to a cozy lunch instead. Below is the rest of our trip. We’re about to take off for our yearly big trip so stay tuned.
