I'd like to go on record here and say that this past weekend was definitely one of the best weekend's I've had this year. In fact, this was actually our first weekend getaway together since being back in the United States FOUR months ago! So, yeah, this was a needed weekend away!
The Dizzle and I rented a sexy Ford Fiesta, complete with neon purple lights inside, and headed out on a 5 1/2 hour road trip (thanks, traffic) to Lake Tahoe to meet friends! Road trips are fun. I really think we should do them more often. We listened to music, we took naps, we listened to This American Life, we talked, I sang, we ate. It was good times. I mean, don't we look like we're having good times? Yes, yes, I think we do.
Despite the mid-week snow fluke, by the time we actually got there, it was cool and crisp, but sunny and GORGEOUS. I couldn't get over how breath-taking the views were. Seriously, the water was that blue. No Photoshop needed, my friends.

I'm sure it's of no surprise what activity was deemed my favorite of the weekend. You know me, being all Asian and shiz. We went to Harrah's and I was in heaven. Glorious, glorious, smoke-filled, heaven. We played craps, roulette, black jack, the big wheel, and slots galore! Did I win a single penny? Well, no. But that's beside the point.
It was so much fun and I can't say enough thanks to Mo and Justin for allowing us to tag along for the weekend. Great bonding time, indeed.
Oh, and then, on the way home - The Dizzle and I got a car.
The Hamster Car, you guys! We. Got. THE. HAMSTER. CAR!!!!
I find it quite hilarious. I mean, I never in my life thought I'd ever want a Kia. But there's just something about that funky little thing that makes me smile. PLUS! It was ZERO down and only $269 month!
A steal if you ask me!
So... you may be wondering why, if we live in San Francisco, do we need a car?!
Well, my dear friends.....that big news shall FINALLY be revealed tomorrow. ;)
