What a Week

So normally on weeknights, our routine looks like this: 
Cam comes home from work, we go to the gym, we come home and eat dinner, take showers, put on sweats, watch TV/relax, and most nights I blog/do work/stay up way too late. 

But this week, we've actually gone out twice...during the week! 
That's cray cray people. 

One of my favorite things about spring is the fact that the days are finally getting longer and it's light later into the evening. That makes me want to be less of a hermit at night and actually get out of the house, be social, and enjoy the beautiful weather! 
(And yes, I realize that we're only 26/don't have kids so going out twice during the week shouldn't be that big of a deal...but at the same time, Cameron and I tend to pack our weekends pretty full, so during the week we typically try to relax a little more)

Tuesday night, we had the pleasure of attending a charity event at Edgewood Golf Course thanks to our friends Natasha and Ryan. Edgewood has a really beautiful building and the most gorgeous views of the lake,  I'm totally planning on having my next wedding here--just keeeeeding, love you Cameron! (But Natasha actually did have her wedding here a few years ago, lucky duck!) The event was a lot of fun and we caught were fortunate to witness one of those completely over-the-top Tahoe sunsets (out on Edgewood's back deck while sampling delicious wines no less!) that just make me so incredibly thankful that we're getting the chance to live here. The pictures don't do it justice, the colors were so vibrant in person!
It's tough to get a good sunset picture with people in it, especially on cell phone camera--either the colors are washed out or we're silhouettes--oh well, you get the idea! 
Couldn't resist taking a cliche blogger outfit photo, but I am so happy it's time for dresses/sandals/bare legs again ! Plus, I'm kind of in love with this striped dress and I know it will be getting lots of wear this summer! I actually ordered it from Gap.com in their tall section; I'm 5'10'' so a lot of dresses/tops can be a little short on me, but I've found that a size Small Tall works perfectly! 

I'm kind of obsessed with that last photo, I'm definitely a lucky girl to get to live here!

Last night, we attended an event for the young professionals group that we're a part of here in Tahoe, which was a good time as always. I love that they rotate the locations for these monthly mixers because it's given us the opportunity to check out some places here in town that we probably wouldn't have gone to otherwise. Last night's event was held at a sushi place that Cameron and I hadn't been to before so it was fun to try it. We got a roll that had pesto in it--really different but delicious, I heart sushi. It was nice to catch up with friends and just get out and be social, plus Cameron won one of the raffles and got a free bottle of wine and a Naked Fish t-shirt (which he gave to me, score!)

Nothing like a casual bathroom selfie before going out on a Wednesday night # bloggerproblems



And finally, this weekend we're heading out to meet Cam's parents in Napa and I am SO excited! It's only a few hours away from us here in Tahoe, and I have been wanting to see more of the area since our visit last spring. I'm looking forward to indulging in some good food/wine, and I'll be sure to share it all with you next week! Xoxo

(Also, don't be surprised if you see my outfits from this week repeated this weekend...just saying....please tell me I'm not the only one who is a same week outfit repeater!)

  1. I'm kinda obsessed with that wine glass and sunset photo too! Gorgeous! I'm tall as well and that's good to know that the tall section on gap.com fits well! I totally know how it is when dresses are a little too short!

  4. I wear the same outfits all the time! No worries. :)

    You should try O'Brien Estates when you're in Napa--it's my favorite these days! They are so nice and grow all the grapes on their property, and the wines are out of this world. It's the only wine club membership I have--that's how much I love it!

  5. First of all, never feel bad about not going out during the week... I'm only 22 and I get ridiculously exhausted if I do! And it looks like you've been having a blast; I love your striped sweater!
