A visit from life, love & puppy prints - HELLO Carolyn!

 Well hello there! :)

 I'm Carolyn, and normally I blog over at life, love and puppy prints


However, today I'm taking over Stilettos and a Fishing Pole! 

As you're reading this post, Jess and her man-child husband Aaron will be enjoying their anniversary trip in Destin.


Can we say JEALOUS?!?!?!

I'm so excited for Jess and her husband, and so glad that they're having a blast celebrating their one year... but I have to say admit...

It makes me SO EXCITED for our one year anniversary trip! 


 Jake (my handsome hubby) and I were married on September 30th, 2011 in downtown Saint Paul, MN.

It was one of the BEST days of my life, and I'm so excited to celebrate the anniversary of such a special date!


That's right! In about a month - the husband and I will be flying here:

 Lake Tahoe!

EEK!
Neither one of us have ever been to Tahoe, so we're super excited to experience it all together for the first time. I've done a ton of searching online to start planning what we want to do while we're there... and let me just say. It's going to be a pretty great trip! 
Here's some of the stuff we have planned... 

Hiking
Jake and I aren't huge nature people... 
but we definitely want to go hiking and experience the natural beauty that Tahoe is known for!

Aerial Trams
Since Tahoe is a huge skiing and snowboarding area... there are tons of aerial trams to bring you to the top of the mountain. Aerial trams will bring us there, let me take pictures and stay nice and cute. Perfect! :)

Stateline
Stateline is literally the state line between Nevada and California, and it's lined with old school casinos and hotels! I can't wait to go do some vintage style gambling! Hopefully we have as much luck as Jess and Aaron have had on their many cruises! :)
 Squaw Valley
The 1960 Winter Olympics was held in Squaw Valley, and even though we're going to be there before the snow hits... I can't wait to see this place! The history and the sights should be pretty amazing!


Food
Jake and I LOVE food, and we love trying new restaurants. I can't wait to try out some of the yummy restaurants around Tahoe!
I can guarantee there will be quite a few food pictures happening on my Instagram feed!


Mansion tours
Jake and I love going through old mansions and learning about the history of the families that lived there. The gorgeous details that go into these houses is amazing, and I can't get enough of it!


 Relaxing
While I'm SO excited to do all of those things... the thing I'm most excited for is to spend time with my husband and RELAXING while enjoying the gorgeous scenery. Yes please!

_______________________________

I'm going to go back to counting down the days until our anniversary trip, but first... 
I want to wish Jess and Aaron the happiest of anniversaries!

You two are an adorable couple and deserve all the happiness in the world!! :)

I grew up in lake tahoe, specifically Stateline. You'll have a great time. Emerald Bay, Vikingsholm, The Whittell Estate, Sand Beach eating lunch on the water are some great not-to-miss activities.
