Palm Springs

Josh's parents had a time share down in Palm Springs, and weren't using it. So we took up the offer to take it for the week. We broke up the drive and stayed in Vegas the first night. We spent a night in the Monte Carlo which the the hotel we stayed in when Josh moved me down to Arizona. We spent the night reminiscing about our first time in Vegas together(just friends at the time). We went to the Paris hotel for dinner and watched the show at the Bellagio.
 

We arived in Palm Springs with two In and Out stops along the way. And boy did we hit a gem. I am a sucker for palm trees. Which lucky for me, were everywhere. We spent four days, relaxing by the pool, playing horseshoes, hitting up the night street festival, shopping, and of course golfing. We ate at another favorite restaurant,"Tommy Bahama". Their coconut shrimp is to die for. I highly suggest you stop by for meal. When golfing Josh ended up randomly getting paired with an ex-PGA tour member, who is now the Golf Pro at the Marriott's Desert Springs five star golf course. Josh had fun getting some pointers on how to play the game. He was on cloud nine for a week or so after. Palm Springs was such a relaxing place we decided this would be a great place for us to retire.

So much fun! I'm still bummed out that we didn't get to meet up. What are the odds? The week you're in Cali, we are in Utah. That just means that you have to come back. When are we going to plan the trip? Last week it was 80 degrees if that tempts you at all. I'm glad you're an in & out fan. It's amazing. That's probably why I have gotten so fat since living here. It was good talking to you for a brief second on the phone. I will call you when we get back from the cruise! Love ya later!!!

Brittany said...

It was so great to talk with you earlier today! What a fun getaway. I'm with you on the palm trees...LOVE THEM! And the Coconut shrimp...Hook me Up! Yummy. Janelle - I love your white shirt with the big buttons. You look really cute!

I'm excited to see you two - it's been much too long.

So you're in Utah now? Stupid me, if I would have been caught up on my blogs I would have known that. I was just there for Thanksgiving!!! I would have loved seeing you! (hitting head) I bet it's nice to be close to family. Thanks for the congrats, we are really excited about it. Jeff is just doing some contract work right now so we don't know quite what the future holds for us yet. We really like it here in Nashville, but wouldn't mind finding something closer to home either. I hope you are doing well! Love ya!
