Misc Tahoe Fun

We celebrated some of our friends’ impending addition to their family this week with a ridiculously large baby shower. There was some really amazing food there but no liquor and I’ll be damned if I’m going to hole up in a house with 40 women and talk about onesies without a drop of alcohol. Right? So, I did what any normal person would do: I hauled ass to the grocery store and bought two 12 packs which I promptly hid in the snow and shared with my favorite lushes.

I totally would have shared with her, but she’s pregnant too. Pregnant and engaged people taking over my world.

I didn’t take very many photos at the shower, but you can check out the rest of them here.

I had my one and only powder day of the season on Monday. We had pow days over last weekend also but I had to work after having just returned home from Bolivia. It’s cool though because Monday was legit. So legit that after about two hours my legs were so thrashed and tired that I was essentially totally and completely out of control for the rest of the day. My friends were all out of control also, except that they are so experienced even when they are screaming behind me and careening downhill, “OH MY GOD I’M SO OUT OF CONTROl!” they still appear to be IN control. I, however, find myself upside down with my face stuffed into snow.

One snowstorm does not a season make, but I’ll take it.

I started my One Word/12 Month Project. You can go read about it under the “One Word Project” tab. The first word for the year is your word and each participant is supposed to pick a word that they will focus on over the course of the year. I picked uncomfortable because I far too often get scared and wuss out in the face of a challenge and I don’t want to do that anymore. So, now, when I feel like I’m going to wuss out of something that I should try, I’m going to focus on how I promised to push myself to an uncomfortable limit this year, rather than just biding my time in the realm of my comfort zone. I decided that since it was my word this month that I would take a self portrait. I had no idea how uncomfortable it would be to do a photo session with myself. Seriously uncomfortable. Editing a self portrait: also uncomfortable. Everything about this project so far: uncomfortable. Ironic.

You’ll have to head over to the project page to see my first submission.

One thought on “Misc Tahoe Fun

  1. 1. Having been through a few baby showers myself (knocked up for the second time currently) I feel very strongly about having booze at these parties. It just isn’t nice not to for your non-pregnant friends. I’m not having a second shower because I think it’s pointless, but the first time around we had a baby pool party – beer, BBQ and baby pools we could soak our feet in.

    2. Your pictures are amazing!
