I Need a Vacation!


Sorry I've been largely M.I.A. in the new year. Work has been a total disaster and unfortunately I still haven't head back from the potential new job. Sigh.

But onto happier news, remember how I was considering using Boyfriend's frequent flier points to travel to Reno? Well this plan has become a reality - except even better! Due to Boyfriend also acquiring lots of hotel loyalty points as well, we get to stay not in the Biggest Little City of the World, but the ultra chic and romantic Lake Tahoe.

We're going in just a couple of weeks and since air fare and hotel are free we hope to have a fun and frugal adventure. Well sure, an afternoon skiing at Heavenly will set us back and the casinos will surely tempt Boyfriend (not me - I hate gambling!) but all told, it will be a fun couple of days where we can escape our daily stress.

Hopefully I'll have exciting career news soon but in the meantime, I'm looking forward to my vacation.

Cool deal! How long to you get to stay? That is a long plane trip. Hope you have a great time!

Glad you're taking a well deserved vacay. I've never found very many discounts for Tahoe ski lift tickets, but since your airfare and room will be comp'd, you'll do just fine. Have fun and don't worry about stuff you can't control!

What a great deal. I'm jealous, I've never been to Lake Tahoe and would love to go.

How fun, I like Tahoe. I don't like gambling either but some friends and I played blackjack at Harrahs in Tahoe and I actually won $100. Enjoy the vacation, don't fall off any chair lifts (did you see the pics of the poor guy dangling pantless from a lift in Vail?).

LOL I did see that. I'm very excited too. We're going for four days/three nights. Just a quick little jaunt. Boyfriend doesn't know how to ski that well so he's gonna chill on the bunny slope. We're also going to try dog sledding!

I love Tahoe! Have a bunch of fun! Can't remember the hotel, but there is a great breakfast brunch at the very top. Find it. You'll love it!
