a little recap
Hi guys!! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already heard my husband Michael and I were in Reno, NV for the weekend! Some of you know we live in the glorious state of Mississippi…so why did we take a 3 day trip across the country to Reno??
(also, apologizing in advance for the photo overload!!)
Michael just finished flight school for the Navy and this weekend he got “winged” (meaning his wings of gold got pinned on) at the annual Tailhook Reunion! You can see a whole post on his winging HERE.
Not everyone has the opportunity to get winged at Tailhook, so we were definitely grateful the timing worked out and Michael could have (one of) his winging ceremonies there!
We had a really busy schedule at Tailhook. But on the last day we were in town, Michael and I realized we had no scheduled events…so we impromptu rented a car and drove to Lake Tahoe for a day of exploring.
The rental car place was totally out of all the boring sedans so we got a sweet black Challenger at no extra cost! So fun.
We grabbed a couple lattes at the Starbucks in the Nugget Casino Resort, hopped in our Challenger, and hit the road.
It took us about 45 minutes to get to the northern edge of Lake Tahoe. We got on the road that winds around the lake and settled in for a drive. At various points there were scenic pull-offs.
I can definitely see this place getting SO CROWDED during the busy season and holiday weekends. Def something to take note of.
We stayed out till dark, and then finally made our way back to Reno and the city lights. It as a perfect day out exploring Lake Tahoe. I couldn’t believe how crystal clear the water was. Can’t wait to come back here next year!
Wishing you all the best start to your week! Michael has another winging ceremony at the end of this week, which we have family coming in for. This week is going to be amazing/crazy.
