I Went to the Snow

It looks like you can take the girl out of SoCal. 


But let me tell you, the SoCal was still in the girl as she forgot how dang cold the snow can be!


Besides being cold though, it sure is incredibly beautiful.


It was such a great remember of how diverse God's creation is. 

Not to mention how diverse California alone is!


Went snow boarding for the first time in 5 years. 

AKA fell off the lift about 47 times and managed to finish each run approximately 26 minutes after every single one of my friends. 

But that first time that I managed to not crash into anyone while getting off the lift, and finished only 3 and a half minutes after everyone? 

Priceless. 


It was a great time spent with friends new and old.



Plus, the trip was planned and set in stone only about 48 hours before leaving, so I would say that counts as spontaneous, right? 

<Going on the Bucket List>

Don't worry though. If 48 hours is too many for you, I'm sure there will be other spontaneous trips this year, too. 

And if I had a Life Bucket List, you better believe that make a video to Call Me Maybe would be on it. 

...

And crossed off. 

BAM:


Hope you had yourself a wonderful weekend!

This looks so fun! And gorgeous pictures! The snow looks so much more appealing when you're snowboarding or having fun in it. Or when you're just looking at pictures of it from your warm bed :)

I'm so glad you had a good trip this goes done in the books as spontaneous for sure! I've only ever been skiing but I love to try and learn to snowboard at some point. I love wakeboarding and surfing though.. easy transition (maybe!) haha

Ah, Tahoe, I'm so jealous! I love being able to be on the mountain, with snow, and look down and see the desert! SO crazy and wonderful!

Spontaneous trips are the best! That picture of the scenery is breathtaking. I've never been anywhere like that, but I hope to one day. What an awesome weekend!
