InstaWeekend: Welcome Fall

Happy Monday everyone! 

My parents got to Tahoe late last week and head home to Michigan tomorrow, so I don't have a ton of time today as I want to enjoy the rest of their visit here. However, I thought I'd pop in to share a few Instagram shots from this weekend: 

I snapped a blogger-y outfit photo before we headed out to dinner Friday night--one of my favorite dark nail polishes {Essie Power Clutch}, orange stripes, and moccasins just feels like fall to me!
Before dinner we stopped at the lake for a bit--note someone doing yoga in the background :)
Another gorgeous Tahoe sunset
Saturday morning, we went to our favorite local place--The Red Hut!
I got a spinach/zucchini omelette {sans cheese} and berries--a delicious Paleo breakfast!
After breakfast, Cam thought it would be fun to take my parents off roading in the Jeep and so we drove to the top of Genoa Peak to take in the great views of the lake.
Saturday afternoon, we headed to the beach to enjoy the sunshine and go standup paddleboarding! Perfect activity for the first day of fall if you ask me :)
Saturday night, we barbecued at the house, had some of my favorite fall beer, and watched college football...sadly Michigan lost to Notre Dame, but it was still a great day! 
Sunday, we headed to Reno and had brunch at Midtown Eats!
Unfortunately, my mom caught a case of stomach flu or food poisoning on Friday and was still recovering and then I woke up Sunday morning with the same fun! (I was able to pull it together enough to go to Reno though--somehow I can always rally for the possibility of shopping!) So sadly we didn't eat much at the restaurant, but it was still a fun time. 
I absolutely loved the decor at Midtown Eats though--Edison lightbulbs, mason jars, little potted succulents on the distressed wood tables, I adore this look (and it totally reminded me of a restaurant you'd find in Brooklyn or Portland). We'll definitely be coming back here when I can actually eat something!
After brunch, we went to Junkee, which is this retro store that sells used vintage furniture, clothing, accessories, and pretty much anything you can think of. They had some really cool stuff, and it was fun to just walk around and's definitely worth a stop if you're in Reno!
Overall, it was a really lovely first weekend of fall and it has been great having my parents in town. I did use my actual camera this weekend as well so I'll be sharing more photos from their visit later on this week. But for now, I hope you enjoyed this little Instagram sneak peek! Have a great Monday everyone! Xoxo
