Ahhh, don’t you just live three-day weekends? On Saturday, Jared, Charlie, our friend Keren and I packed up the car and headed up to Tahoe for a long weekend in the snow!
The drive took a while, but we finally got to the cabin around 2pm.
Jared gets a ski house share every year with 10 or so friends…so basically the cabin is ours January through April. It is so much fun! Because it’s a share, you never know who is going to be in the cabin (well they usually email each other, but…), but it’s usually 5-10 and always so cozy to hang out.
This was a different house than last year, but they did a great job choosing! It is huge! Plus, there’s a hot tub outside surrounded by pretty trees AND a ping ping and pool table. Score!!
Inside, it’s very cozy and cabin-y
There were about 8 people up this weekend so we just spent the rest of Saturday hanging out with everyone, taking a long walk through the neighborhood, hot tubbing, and making dinner. It’s almost 40 degrees during the day so really nice.
Sunday morning, we woke up early. Someone had already made coffee (yeah!)
Made breakfast…simple, but good.
And then we watched the inauguration while I did wedding stuff
Until we got a group together for a hike! Everyone usually spends the day skiing, but holiday weekends are blackout weekends for people with season passers, Jared still can’t ski because of his shoulder, and most importantly…we ALL wanted to be home by noon for the 49er game!
We went to Donner Memorial State Park (remember the story of the Donner Party?)
It was beautiful and Charlie was in heaven! He looooves the snow
We got home around 12:30. Perfect time for the game! I was soo hungry for lunch…put together a random assortment that was really good
We spent the afternoon watching football (8 of us), chillaxing, and playing ball with Charlie. He enjoyed all the attention and took full advantage of it!
After the intense game- I was freaking out during the last 10 minutes…holy cow, I still can’t believe they won!!! The giants won the World Series and now the 49ers are going to the Superbowl?!?! Best year ever for SF!!– Jared and I went to the gym at the complex (for all the houses in this development). It’s really nice. There’s a pool, hot tub, and nice workout space. We just worked out for an hour.
My favorite part about it is that you stare out to the snowy mountains while on the treadmill. Def can’t do that at home!
The evening consisted of dinner, more hanging out, more hot tub, more dog walks, and a rousing game of ping ping. The only thing I took photos of was dinner…
But I bet you can use your imagination for the rest. I went to sleep early- 9:45…I think the cold air and altitude makes me extra sleepy.
Now it’s Monday morning…we’ve been lazy just drinking coffee, watching the inauguration, doing casual yoga…and figuring out what to do for the next few hours before we head home….
