California Here I Come, right back where I started from

I am actually originally from California, born and raised in the City of Angeles. But we aren't moving to California, we are just going for a couple of days.

We are headed off to Squaw Valley that is very near Lake Tahoe for the Wanderlust Festival. It's sort of a yoga/music/hippie dippy type of thing. Why are we going you ask. Well, some of you know I am a sweepstakes fiend and sometimes I get lucky. I got lucky.

I won the trip from iVillage on Twitter. All I had to do was follow them and then retweet the tweet they posted. I swear I only did it once and won!! That's very lucky because I know people were tweeting a billion times a day. So I guess it was meant to be.

We are leaving tomorrow and come back Sunday. It was a last minute thing but, luckily, we were able to take the time off work. I have never been to Lake Tahoe although I lived in CA for over 25 years. I heard it is spectacular up there. So I am excited.

The bad thing is that we will have lots of tomatoes we won't be eating. The good thing is our house/cat sitter will be able to pick them and have her own tomato feast and at least they won't go to waste!!

But keep a lookout on the blog because I will be posting my usual vacation vlogs. And then maybe I can get some nice video of the area. I am hoping we get the opportunity to drive around Lake Tahoe and maybe get a little gambling in while we are there!!

  1. OMG, you are so lucky!!!! That's awesome. You're going there and then you'll get home and then leave again for NYC. LOL

    PS. I don't know what I did with your cell #. It's not in my phone. Email me back with it so I can get it loaded which I swear I'll do. It's crucial for next weekend. Collaboration and comingling required.
