(71-73) Palm Desert Vacation
Sunday we (Christina, Krissi, Tulsi, and myself) headed out to palm desert. We passed through blue cloudy sky, rain, and clear sky. We also drove through city, hills, and eventually arrived in the desert surrounded by palm trees and mountains in the distance.
We stayed at the Marimonte Resort. It is a beautiful place with spanish style buildings.
On the first day we:
- laid out by the pool
-went to souplantation for dinner
-Jacuzzied it up
-we woke up around 9am.
-We all went to the gym to work out.
-came back to the room and ate breakfast (food we brought with us)
-got cleaned up and rested for a little while
-went to lunch (panera/ chipotle)
-came back to the resort
-pool from 1:30-5ish
-started reading water for elephants
-we each ordered a drink (i got a mudslide-so good)
-around 5 we went back to the room and got ready to go out for the night
-we walked around and then got dinner at a pub place-i have no idea what it was called
-when we got back to the room we relaxed and turned in for the night
FYI: i did not get sunburned (this is a big accomplishment for me- I actually have slight tan lines!)
Our last day :(
I woke up around 9 and went outside on our little patio and read for a little while.
We ordered breakfast from the resort to use up the rest of our $50 worth of room charge.
We packed up and then checked out around 10:30 or so.
We got back to long beach after 1pm.
Christina and I decided that we wanted to get a message. We were able to get an appointment at message envy. It was so great to to end this vacation with even more relaxing and tension release by getting a message.
Now i am home and wishing the vacation could have been longer. Unfortunately, reality has to set back in. The rest of my spring break has to be spent doing laundry, cleaning my room, and doing homework/papers/projects for almost all(4/5) of my classes. I am going to spend my mornings relaxing with a cup of coffee and reading-i have to finish this book this week, otherwise it probably won't happen for a while.
