The Unexpected

Weekend highlights and surprises...

* Helping hands when we needed a seat.

We realized we have been friends for 27 years!

Beautiful Desert Blooms.

Six pillows on each bed!

Realistic swimsuit models ... no Sports Illustrated.
(This photo was hanging in our room.)

A double desk, plenty of room for us and our two laptops.

Happening live music at the lounge and pool and maybe the most surprising of all was....

The tattoo convention at our hotel during our weekend.

So here we are two fortysomething moms on a weekend getaway trying to blend in with the hundreds of attendees for this convention. I love the unexpected it often provides the spice in life, that little something that makes the experience so memorable.
"Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me."

The hand chairs were cool as were the photos. Palm Springs is such a great town, even in the summer.

Looks like y'all had a great time.


Oh, and in case i didn't say so before, thanks for the link, I appreciate it.
