The Little Things

Andrew and I spent the week in Palm Springs. I love that Palm Springs is just two hours away. It makes getting away and getting back home so much easier. Usually when we get home from a vacation we’re completely exhausted and we leave our suitcases full for days and live out of random clothes for weeks.  But last night we unpacked everything and even did all our laundry. It felt so good to get home with a little energy, unpack and then relax with our favorite pups.  I love vacations, but equally love coming home especially the puppy welcome party.

The Parker Palm Springs


The Parker was designed by Jonathon Adler and is the chicest hotel in Palm Springs.  We explored the whole grounds and we’re already planning a trip back to stay at The Parker. I can only imagine grabbing a drink from the dark green mini bar and sitting in the awesome lobby.  Oh, and the spa.  Oh man. The spa is a DREAM.

Norma’s for breakfast is the way to go if you can’t stay at The Parker. First off, they greet you with a smoothie shooter. Yes, please. Everything we tried was delicious, from the traditional or upstream (with salmon) eggs benedict to the scrambled eggs and bacon breakfast quesadilla. All delicious.

The hotel grounds has several games, which makes this hotel right up Andrew and my alley. They have pétanque, giant chess, and ping pong. We’re always up for a little friendly (not always) competition.

Also please check out their website and visit their pages (spa, dine, rooms…). They have videos describing the hotel and they are so incredibly random and entertaining.
