You know you are looking forward to going somewhere when you are packed and ready to go (minus bathroom room stuff) two days before you actually leave. That was me last Wednesday...packed and ready to head to Tahoe. In fact, not only was I packed, I might have already been mentally there Thursday and Friday...just saying.
Friday afternoon Emilie came into town long enough to meet the Notorious TED, pick me up, pick Melissa up and head up the mountain for our getaway. Melissa had invited us to go up to her family's house and we were not going to miss the chance to do so!!
Here's our "pad" for the weekend.
Right after we got there we put the pregnant woman to work making dip while we sipped our beverages. I felt kind of bad....just kind of . :)
About 10 or so years ago we all came up here for a weekend and I love that if I posted a picture from back then...the living room would look identical.
Shout out to the Marini Family!!!!! Hello old friend!!!!!!
Funny story...the weekend way back when us girls came up we were outside getting ready to go somewhere and we see this red Trans Am drive by...it was Rich. He was there for the celebrity gold tournament and his cabin was right down the street from Melissa's family's place. It was so crazy that at the time I knew two people who had places in Tahoe and they were both located on the same street.
Here is me getting a closer picture of the cabin. I had to be careful because there was a man inside watching me take the pictures and let's be honest...that's spooky. Crazy girl doing drive by shootings is probably not to common up there!
Gordie on a walk with Melissa and I. He was BEYOND good. Such a sweet puppy!!!!
After our walk we headed down to a beach...which the name escapes me...and had a very relaxing lunch.
And the view wasn't too shabby either!
Melissa and Emilie...soakin' up some sun!
It was definitely a hat day!!!
Later that night we decided to go to a nice dinner and then to the casinos. As we were getting ready Melissa had her iPod playing. (Back story---We we used to live in Chico together, there was ALWAYS music playing. Mostly from Melissa, but it seemed like someone always had their stereo on. And what I love about these two girls is that they are 80's music FREAKS!!! They have been to every Def Leppard concert east of the Colorado border. Bottom like--they have good taste in music) As we are getting ready, singing along to every song that comes on, it hits me....BEST PLAYLIST EVER!!! What then sent me over the edge was when the song "Lookin' for Love" from the movie Urban Cowboy came on I ran to the bottom of the staircase and screamed to Melissa...."BEST PLAYLIST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Who??? Who??? Other than me and my sister...who would possibly ever put this on their iPod???? MELISSA!!!!!!!! She is my playlist goddess!!!
We went to a great restaurant called the Riva Grill. Nice view for a late Saturday night dinner!
Thanks girls for a great weekend! Emilie I hope you had a relaxing weekend before chaos ensues with the addition of another boy to the Eliasen Family! And Melissa thank you for opening your home to us and planning a great weekend! xoxo
