Oh Tahoe - Part I

Oh hey.
Remember me?
Sorry I haven't posted since last week..
but the hubs and I ran away again. 
This time to beautiful Lake Tahoe. 

We were lucky enough to get the day off on Monday,
{thank you Mr. President}
so we decided to take a romantic trip up to Nor Cal.

that's what we "So Calners" like to call anything north of L.A. 

You may want to get your sunglasses out,
because the photos below are amazingly bright. 
I swear all these backdrops are real though..
crazy beautiful, right?
Apparently I smile like Elvis sometimes? 
Oh, and I'm also pretty badass.
First order of business was to go snow-mobiling. 
Not gonna lie,
I was a little nervous about it at first,
but it ended up being one of the funnest activities ever!
If you've never tried it before,
I highly recommend you get on that asap. 
I'll provide more details about our excursion in this week's Thursday Travel Tips.

After our adventure-packed morning,
we filled our bellies with freshly caught seafood,
and proceeded to play around on the beach.
It was unbelievable to me, how clear the lake water was. 
Truly breath-taking scenery,
wouldn't you say?

I went snowboarding in Tahoe a few years ago and it. was. amazing. Such a beautiful place, I stayed in a cabin on the lake for three weeks and it was the most beautiful place I've ever stayed.. all that fresh air definitely gives you a good nights sleep too :) x

I LOVE all of your pictures!!! And I'm interested to hear more about your snowmobiling experience. I've never tried it before either but it looks like fun!
My plan is to go to Tahoe at the end of September, I hear that's a nice time of year to go. Did you drive or fly?
