Overnight Essentials @ColonyPalmsPS

My week in PS was spent at the Colony Palms Hotel in Palms Springs. Out of all the hotels I’ve been to in PS, this is by far my favorite. It’s intimate, has great service, VALET, comfy beds and THE BEST CAESAR salad ever. I mean, their restaurant is called Purple Palm. 😛

This is my go to spot when I’m in town for work.

LA -> PS @ColonyPalmsPS

Spent 24 hours in Palm Springs. It was a nice getaway even though it was work related.

Stayed at the Colony Palms Hotel which was quaint and intimate.

Dinner @MastrosOfficial #PalmSprings

We had Sunday dinner at Mastro’s in Palm Desert and it was delicious.

We don’t order meat. We got two shrimp cocktails, lots of cocktails, spicy mambo salad, twice baked potato and a butter cake.

I fell in love with their Lemon Drop. First was the original way, second was double Kettle. There wasn’t enough vodka the first time around, and of course I got Kettle with it. ALWAYS.IMG_4987

The other night…

We had a work event and dinner after. I managed to be responsible and not have anything to drink at dinner. I love that Palm Desert has a Mastro’s! 🙂

Driving home alone from #PalmSprings at 10:30pm was relaxing. I turned on my #SiriuslySinatra and cruised all the way home.

Weekend Getaway!

Rented a home big enough for six couples!
Annual trip for us and it’s the best way to visit Palm Springs. Jo found a house in Indio this time but it’s much bigger and better!

No need for us to go into town so all we really needed was a pool and a big place.

Hopped in the car with Jo and her hubby and Nancy to arrive early.

We sat in the pool all day!

Weekend Getaway

Our first “family” trip. Bear, Tyler & me with two other families.

Thanks to my friend and her family’s amazing home in Palm Springs, we got to enjoy a nice weekend, home away from home.

The new development is built by Toll Brothers, whom I LOVE! They build all the big homes in OC and I used to love going to see their model homes for fun.

The house was gorgeous and I felt so lucky to have been invited with the whole family.

We cooked feasts for breakfast, lunch and dinner and drank in between and during meals.

The kids swam and played all day and night.

A house was filled with six adults, five children and two dogs.

It was a late birthday celebration for my dear friend SNN, thank you again for having us, we had too much fun!

Weekend Getaway

A great weekend in Palm Springs with Bear, Jo and her hubby.

We had so much fun.

Of course I’m a lot heavier than I was before I left but the memories and fun in the sun was well worth every pound.

We arrived Friday afternoon, spent the rest of sunlight by the pool. Drinking and more drinking.

Then more drinking.

Then we went to the casino, picked up Taco Bell after for drunchies and passed out.

Of course I ate all the snacks I brought for the trip.

DAY TWO

Got to the pool at 8am. Thanks to Jo who went and grabbed us spots. Crazy how people get to the pool so early.

But another fun day in the sun while the boys went golfing.

For breakfast. Bloody Mary of course!

We had drink after drink after drink after shots. Then more drinks and shots and more shots.

I’ve never had so much fun, ever. Knowing I can get as tossed without having to feel like I had something to do or get home safely.

We had a nice quiet dinner after a nap and the boys went to the casino again while the girls passed out from food coma. 😛

Life size Marilyn Monroe!

Why? I’m not sure, but definitely photo worthy. Wish I could have climbed up.

I was sad when we were leaving this am. I wish we could have stayed forever longer.

Brunch with mimosa and then to Cabazon.

After Cabazon, I passed out on the entire ride home.

Thank you Bear for a fun time and Jo and A for everything!
