Reno and Fitzgeralds

We made it to the hotel where we were staying and actually had a pretty nice view from our room. As I mentioned before, I've only been to Reno once for work and it was a day turnaround trip a few months ago. Everyone told me it was even less green than Vegas and not what I was used to. I was not that impressed when I was up for work but with the snow on the mountains, it really was a beautiful town this trip. I am glad I never considered moving up there but it's definitely a great place for a weekend trip since it's such a close drive. My only request is future trips be planned outside of pending blizzards! :-)
Once I got unpacked, we took advantage of our comped package which meant free drinks all weekend! A few vodka cranberries and a beer, I was back to my normal self.
Saturday is when we tried to head down to Carson City and the next storm was blowing through so we opted to turn around and get back to the hotel in case we got stuck down there. Of course, typical female, spotted a shopping area and managed to convince Scott to make a pit stop on our way back! :-) Definitely a first for me to be in a parking lot covered in snow!
