My Favorite Little Trip.

This year, just like last, I took a week off of work after my little loves graduated so that I could enjoy some free time before I head back to the preschool for summer session. Thankfully, Weston and I were able to sneak in our annual trip to Palm Springs before endo realized I was having too much fun and immediately had to shut the party down on Sunday night.

We stayed at Avanti which is our all-time favorite hotel but we had a lot of fun exploring The Parker too! It's mid-century style made me feel like we had stepped right into an episode of Mad Men. We got to try out some gluten-free pizza at Birba, downed some margaritas at El Jefe, and spent most of our time in the pool since it was about 105 degrees the whole time we were there. It was wonderful and I felt pretty well up until our last night, which was really amazing!

We had also planned a short getaway to Las Vegas this week since our last attempt a few years ago accidentally became a turnaround trip thanks to endo and I still haven't been! But what do ya know, we had to cancel last minute due to my pain. Again.

Endometriosis : 2
Las Vegas : 0

One of these days I will make it there! Until then, I will continue reliving these fabulous days in Palm Springs and keep counting down to my surgery. Less than 2 months, friends! Can't believe I might be pain free in 46 days! :)

Do you have any trips planned for this summer?

Also, I'm reading Necessary Lies for a book club with my aunts! Has anyone else read it? I'm excited to discuss it with all the ladies next week and would love to get your take on it if you've read it before. Have a nice weekend!


  1. cute photos, sounds like a good trip! Hopefully Vegas works out one day! i'm still a little scared to even attempt to go there ;)

    1. Thank you! Yes, I believe that one day I'll make it there and you will too! We got this, girl! ;) xoxo

  2. ohhh, I hope you make it to Las Vegas some time soon! Your little getaway looks fabulous, though! I'm dreaming of spending some downtime near a pool with a book...

  3. This is really a wonderful post.

  4. Ambiance is vital to a hotel’s existence and its ability to keep its customers coming back for more. A hotel is essentially a traveler’s home away from home, and it’s critical for it to have a cozy atmosphere. The mere fact that The Parker made you feel like you got transported back in time means that its ambiance was crafted to perfection. Glad you had a great time!
