Palm Springs Getaway

I haven't been updating the blog as much as I would like. Going on a long family vacation and then a weekend girls trip has kept me busy. Not that I am complaining, its been great!  But I do have hopes for my little blog, that include improving my time management skills and actually putting all the ideas in my head into action. I sat down this afternoon to do this post and within 5 minutes, my dining room table was pushed against the wall, baby Charlie was running around naked and Carys was spraying the hose all over the backyard. They are busy little buggers! Oh but I love them! So I shelved it and waited for them to go to sleep.  By the way, here is a picture of them. 
See sometimes they are calm...

Anyway, on with the post! I went on a girls trip to Palm Springs for a couple days. I just absolutely love it there! Despite the 115 degree temperatures and pool that felt like a warm bath, I was still happy to be there. Good company, beautiful views and retro modern design and architecture around every corner. 
Also got the chance to practice more with my trusty camera.

The entrance to the amazing Parker Palm Springs Hotel...this is a must stop if you visit this city! The whole place is designed by Jonathan Adler, and its just awesome. Click here for more info.

OK I didn't take this. That's me in the chair! My talented friend Andi took it while trying to explain over-exposure to me.

the sky is so beautiful here...the Del Marco Hotel

there is a massive 26 foot statue of Marilyn downtown, its oddly realistic and human like for such a large structure.

Such a fun trip!
