Part of the reason why we were all so shocked to learn that Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are now dating is because neither one had yet posted photos to Instagram of the two of them hanging out. However, now that the big announcement about them dating was made on this week's reunion, we're getting to see plenty of pics of the happy couple!

On February 12, Ariana posts three photos of herself with Tom on a trip to Northern California. "@tomsandoval1 #whatatrip #hashtagstealer," she writes. 

We love these photos, as the two of them really seem happy together. And clearly, the weather on their trip is chillier than the Beverly Hills temps that they've been used to. 

Tom also posted a few pics of the couple on their trip, including one of them at a restaurant. "@ariana252525 and I took a trip up north and stopped by the Clift in SF #whatatrip," Tom captions it, which explains why Ariana made the "#hashtahstealer" joke in her photo's caption. Too cute!

Tom also posts a pic of them in a hot air balloon together. "Hot air balloon ride!" Tom captions this one. "Looking down at the beautiful vineyards of Napa! #whatatrip." He really likes that hashtag, doesn't he?

Do you think that Tom and Ariana are a cute couple?
