girls weekend: palm springs
things have changed since the last time we were here.
we stayed at jen's in-law's place again. seriously, no hotel is better than this. we had room for all of us to sleep, a pool to soak in and a place to eat. each of us brought food for one meal, snacks and dessert.
birba. i had seen it on some blogs and heard that the atmosphere was perfect - the entire restaurant is outdoor. and it didn't disappoint.
right after dinner we decided that we wanted to go dancing. our server recommended a place where they had great music, a fun atmosphere and there was no concern for getting hit on by creepy guys. let's just say the men there would not be interested in us.
ace hotel just a few blocks from the house. if it hadn't been so hot (over 100 that day) we would have walked there.
we even tried taking pictures in the old fashioned photo booth. yes, the five of us piled into the tiny booth, crawled on top of each other and got the worst photos ever.
you can't even see everyone. but we laughed and had fun so it was worth the $4 for sure. getting out of the booth must have looked like one of those clown cars at the circus.
back to the house and time to go home. we did make it to the outlets and got in a bit of shopping before driving back to our lives. even the car rides were full of laughter, touching moments, and good conversation.
we do get to see each other often. these are my sisters and good friend. jen, i consider you a sister now too. but we have busy lives that pull us in different directions. we're not always together as a group, without the kids and hubbies. that dynamic makes times like these special. having open conversations, getting to know the details of our lives, giving and getting advice with no pressure.
