Palm Springs Summer Vacay

What better way to kick off the start of Summer than a trip to Palm Springs! It's only about an hour and a half drive from OC and it seems like a world away because of the lax desert vibes. If you're like me and think of Vegas and run the other way this is a place for you then ;) I mapped out my two and a half days to have a bit of everything to do since I knew we would want to live it up because we hardly get to go out the two of us! First off we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, which was super cool looking but seemed to have lots of hidden fees :/ price you pay to stay at a resort I guess...oh well...onto the fun stuff!!!
We set off to the desert in the morning and arrived at Morongo casino before 10 am! I've never actually been here before, but driven by the tall casino/hotel each and every time we pass into Palm Springs!. I found my fav slot machine (Sex and The City) and an Iced Latte and I was in the zone! After pressing buttons vicariously and not knowing what the he…

Summer Musings!

Yeah of course summers almost over and I'm just getting around to talking about it on here. This summer wasn't AMAZING or anything...but it was spent with family and friends so I cant complain. 
As usual it was gloomy in June, lots of clouds and walks to the coffee shop for their new cold brew coffee yum! I was counting down the days till mid June because I was going on my week long vacay from life/work/stress/life/stress/work you know... I'll be sharing more on that trip in a later post...

Basically I started my summer off by getting Loki a life vest! He's a boy but hot pink is just so much fun (and was the only one left in his size lol) he loves it as you can see. Many a day was spent by the pool or in it with a beer in hand and some relaxing world groove music in the background to tune out the sound of my anxious thoughts :0



Another favorite thing I did this summer was go for walks, weather on the trail or in the town I brought Loki with me and sometimes my crazy g…

Around Town & Decorating

Some summer days are best spent doing a whole lot of nothing & some decorating on the side. During the dog days of summer I spend time with my mom since she has a whole month and a half off...perks of being a teacher! So on a typical day Loki and I headed over to my moms house to run errands & eat lunch etc. 
A stop at the iconic fountain outside the Placentia Library was in order. I remember this day was too hot to bear being outside...but it was a pretty day nonetheless. By the way, did you know that the Placentia Library has a reading hour for kids that includes therapy dogs? I wanna GO!

Loki is always happy to be along for the ride! This little boy makes life so much more interesting. 
After running around the town we drove by these really cute trailer homes that had super cute yards. Since you know we're in a drought here in SoCal we all have no yards...just dirt and succulents. This yard was super cute and inspirational for my mom to show my dad,who in her opinion h…
