Hello Lake Tahoe!

29 Dec
This baby girl is all waxed and ready to fly

What you see here, my friends, is one very happy camper. I’ve got my baby with me, my Burton Feelgood ES snowboard. We’re heading up to Incline Village for our fifth annual trip with our best friends. We’ve been packing, planning, sorting and shuffling things around for several days. Tomorrow morning, we take the four hour pilgrimage north to spend the next ten days together. This crew takes its quality time together seriously!

I’ll do my best to post updates but there won’t be much in the way of fashion unless you’re really into snowboarding, though the scenic views from the top of the ridge are mind-blowing. I’ll share, you’ll see for yourself. Fortunately, there are a couple themed nights in the works which are certain to provide a photo opp or two, and at the least some laughs.

Don’t let the simple graphics of this board fool you, this is one tight and fast flying machine. At 152, it’s pretty lengthy for my stature which contributes to the speed. This board is not for the faint of heart. Alas, now I want something less aggressive and more playful. The anticipation of getting it is half the fun! It’s probably a good thing I don’t have my new board yet, I’m not sure I could smile any harder. If I had that new Burton Lip-Stick 145 with Flying V, I might find a way.

Oh happiness!

Hubby got me these boots for my birthday

Since I’m sure you didn’t really want to see me in my pajamas, as I spent yet another day nursing this boring chest cold, (emphasis on boring. Really, c’mon, how many times can a girl cough?) I re-enacted yesterday’s outfit because I’m rockin’ the faux fur. Thanks to Lauren at who got me coveting one when she wore hers in her 30 for 30 remix. I just took a quick peek and I believe we may even have the same one! Score! I wasn’t even specific when I asked Santa, he found this one all on his own. Isn’t imitation the sincerest form of flattery?

Something like that.

Deets: Sparkly coffee t-shirt/Michael Stars, black ankle cigarette pants/BDG, Urban Outfitters, vest/Urban Outfitters, tree of life necklace/gifted, hand-carved wooden earrings/Chicago, brown embroidered boots/Aerosoles, snowboard/Burton Feelgood ES.

    Love your fur and your boots. Your husband has great taste.

    I know nothing about skiing or snowboarding but am amused to find your snowboard is the same height as me. Looking forward to seeing those views.
