We were invited to spend the weekend at Palm Desert with our friends and we had a brast! It was my first time visiting a “desert” city and after spending my weekend in an extremely hot town, I can now say that I became stronger and no longer feel intolerant of the “heat” that we get here in Orange County. The heat is beyond ridiculous in Palm Desert, guys. Imagine being in an incredibly stuffy room with no doors or windows to open–that is Palm Desert, 24/7.
Our resort was beautiful. It had air conditioner. Each room has a patio and when you go outside, you’ll sometimes catch bunnies and/ roadrunners just hanging out in the grass. We had one big bedroom and next door was the kitchen, living room and an extra bedroom. The showers were amazing…with the only minor issue that I used one of their towels to wipe my face and eventually noticed a spider on it, possibly a brown recluse (but I’m not entirely sure, I didn’t have glasses on). Instead of freaking out (which I normally do), I was surprisingly laid back because hey, I’m not going to let shit stress me out while I’m on vacation. I smooshed it with a tissue and continued to dry myself with the towel that the spider use to live in (hey, it’s the desert).
All the food we had over the weekend did not disappoint. Before we left for Palm Desert, we had Japanese. I had the spicy tuna bowl. I wasn’t going to post the picture here since it wasn’t at Palm Desert, but it was so delicious I’m going to be a rebel and just post it anyway!
We hiked up in the mountains. I had such a kickass workout out of it that I’m actually more motivated than ever to get off my ass and start getting more active. There were rocks I wanted to climb to get a couple of good scenic pictures but my boyfriend didn’t want me to fall and break my ankle or something, so I guess I wasn’t allowed to. But these pictures will do.
Besides hiking and getting fat. We napped a lot in the middle of the day (hey, it’s the desert) and hung out in the pool. What a life. Also, T-Rex:
