Alphabet Soup!

Over the weekend I went through a full tank of gas in just 24 hours! It was definitely a whirlwind weekend with a lot to do, places to go, and people to see! On Friday night, after Nicole’s 21st birthday dinner, I filled up my empty gas tank at the cheapest gas station in town (I love Arco’s AMPM). Somehow, the miles just ticked away: 1, 2, 3… 456, 457, 458…

1. Nicole’s 21st on Friday (a few back and forth trips to Los Gatos/San Jose)

After outlet pricing and gift cards, I only spent $60 at Lululemon for 4 bottoms (cycling shorts, commuter bicycling pants, running shorts, running capris). SCORE.

7. Impromptu Tahoe trip!!!

Since Nicole came home Thursday for her birthday, I didn’t think Tahoe was in the cards this weekend. I looked at my schedule and realized that Nicole wouldn’t miss me (sad, but true) if I was gone on Sunday. So, I drove up to Tahoe late Saturday night, all by myself, to take advantage of the cabin and “new” snow. I arrived around midnight, just in time for the rave music and laser light show. If you know me, you know I can sleep through ANNNYYYYTHING. It’s a terrific skill.

The ski slopes were great, all things considered (translation: what can you do with just 6″ of new snow? #imeanreally). I spent Sunday at Alpine Meadows skiing with everyone from the cabin. Party of 8! And then a little extra time at Squaw Valley….

I love my K2 skis!

I was going to turn this post into my weekly workout recap, but I’ll save that for tomorrow. Spoiler: I didn’t do any strength training. Whoops?

Question: If you had a full tank of gas and nowhere to be for 24 hours, where would you go? If only you could drive to Hawaii… :)

  2. Busy weekend indeed!! Hmmm, I’d probably either drive to San Diego (got to Del Mar on 1 tank before from SJ) or Arcata to visit my sister.
