As I mentioned in my last post, I've been away from the blog all week because I've been on spring break! It's been great to take a week off from school, writing, and all the craziness of senior year to just relax and have some serious fun with friends.
For my final real spring break, I did a two-parter trip: for the first half of the week, Lake Tahoe; for the second half, Las Vegas! Today I'm going to talk about my Tahoe experience (check back tomorrow for Vegas craziness!!!)

The drive wasn't too bad, and though we did hit some rain coming into Sacramento, we managed to avoid the snowstorm rolling in! Of course, that storm continued all through Sunday, so our first day of skiing at Heavenly was cut a little short due to cold, windy conditions and nonstop snow. Seriously guys, I have learned that I am a total spring skier. I like my slopes sunny and groomed, but it was interesting to try and ski through fresh-falling snow. But yeah, I was happy to call it an early day and spend the rest of the afternoon drinking hot chocolate with Baileys.

Anyways, we went down by the lake and then went beer tasting at Cold Water Brewery in town. If you ever find yourself there, I highly recommend the Tahoe Loaf, which is basically a huge loaf of sourdough bread with ooey gooey delicious melted cheese dip (but be warned, you need a few people to eat it; there were six of us and we struggled!) and also all the beer was great.

Also, shoutout to my friend Michael and his family for hosting us at their cabin! Having a lovely place to stay and plenty of food to eat was so clutch, and just look at the views we got! But yeah, thank goodness I was skiing hard everyday or else I would have gained like ten pounds from all the food we ate (and alcohol we drank...hey, it is spring break!)
