Tahoepalooza!!

The final & last chapter of our summer vacation in San Francisco, CA had us visiting the Gotham Club at the San Francisco Giants baseball Stadium which was the Hubster Zack’s favorite day by far!⚾️ My mother in law’s childhood friend Shirley was gracious enough to lend us their passes to this extravagant sports club that overlooked the baseball stadium, had its separate bar, allowed you to walk partly on the San Francisco Giants dugout field & lastly had a bowling alley on the top floor! Cheers!

After our last day in the City we packed up & drove 4 hours up to Lake Tahoe for our family reunion. Tahoepalooza (dubbed by my mum in law Kris & to all after that?) was planned to be a fun extravaganza where 15 of us family members would hit the beach, eat great food from our Italian side, sightsee & most importantly reconnect with loved ones for 3 days. We did all those things & more…
Not seeing my mum-in-Law for 2 months had quite an effect on me which was great as we got to catch up like no time had passed in a matter of 20 mins (Don’t you just love relationships like that?!)

Here is a pic of my mum-in-Law Krissy & I  hugging it out as she’s making one of her infamous dips for Appetizers that night… LOVE THAT WOMAN! I’m wearing a Zara floral maxi dress with a BCBG gold & black belt to cinch in the waist & black Sam Edelman thong sandals to complete the look! Here is a picture of the family cabin that we’ve had in our family since the 1960’s (with some renovations of course) it’s a piece of heaven!

So I’m not much of a fan of the beach (being black & all) but for one day a year I join the masses & Zack & I are here  enjoying those rays? I’m wearing a cherry red Robin Piccone one piece swimming costume with cutouts from Nordstrom, a white vitamin E cover up from Everything But Water, a tan visor from H &M & my favorite sunnies from Quay Australia.

One of my favorite things to do at Tahoe other than mini golf, sight see & eat is drink (being on holiday & all?) & a local restaurant called Garwoods is the place to do it! They’re infamous for their signature drinks called “Wet Woodys” a concoction of rum & deliciousness that doesn’t taste like alcohol which we know can be dangerous… here is a pic of their classic wet woody beverage in all its glory! I had one & a half of these & lost at mini golf with the husband (first time losing in like 10 yrs) I’m convinced he got me sloshed on purpose?☺️

An all out great time in both cities me thinks, get in!!! So that concludes my summer Holidaze lovies! Next week Wednesday I’ll get back on track speaking of the fall trends & how to wear them…

Cheers & Best Wishes,
