I know I’ve extolled the virtues of a Palm Springs weekend more times than you can shake a stick at, but I’m TELLIN’ ya, if you ever get the chance to plop yourself into this desert oasis, make it happen. And this weekend, plop myself I did. I was lucky enough to celebrate my second bachelorette weekend there (the first was mine – a year ago!).
The ingredients for a stellar Palm Springs bachelorette weekend? See below:
And fill it with delicious grub, such as this breakfast bread bar:
Lastly, hire Brian from Happy Bartenders to show a bunch of rowdy girls a grrrreat time – by whipping up poolside concoctions, of course:
And the quote of the week: ”I don’t know any of these people… I’m in my 30s… Think Magnum P.I.” – Fellow partygoer to bachelorette’s 20-something cousin, who’d gone into detail about several Real World cast members.
Hello friends! How was everyone’s weekend? Mine, well, it was delicious. The hubby and I decided to take a short little jaunt to one of our favorite places, Palm Springs.
(The road into town)
It was exactly what we needed: a couple days of lounging by a pool in the hot desert sun, good food and quality time catching up with a grrrreat new book (more on that later).
We stayed at The Saguaro, a newly refurbished former Holiday Inn that has just the right amount of colorful kitsch. Highly recommend it here.
Now I’m back, rejuvenated, sunkissed and trying to keep that relaxed feeling from the weekend going as long as possible. And I think I’ve managed to do it with the discovery of a new song this morning. It’s called “Closer Than This” and is by a band named St. Lucia. How perfect is that? The lead singer’s got a voice reminiscent of David Byrne from Talking Heads, (one of my all time favorite singers) and each time I play this I’m transported to a beach somewhere, or mentally moved to the driver’s seat of a convertible along a long stretch of road. I’m really lovin’ this. Enjoy, and happy Monday!
