Akward and Awesome Thursday

I thought I'd use this post to show off some pictures of my fabulous trip to Palm Springs.
  • Lost luggage from Phoenix to Palm Springs  (really?, it's only a 20 min. flight)
  • Airlines totally messing up our flight home and having to return a day earlier than planned
  • The nannies at the pool swimming and playing with the kids while the moms just hung out on the side of the pool.
  • Thinking you are totally gonna score at all the Consignment Shops in Palm Springs, then realizing that 70% off of $1500 is still out of your budget! 
  • An acquaintance of mine told me that I looked just like her collage room mate which she had just happened to have seen.  She pulls up a picture on her phone.  There happened to be 2 women in the picture.  To this very moment I still have no idea which one she thought looked like me!!!
  • Palm Springs
  • Skytram
  • Son1 home for the weekend and we actually shopped!
  • Son2 coming home this weekend for Fall Break!
  • Hosting a wine tasting party tonight.
 Today I will also be sharing the first photo's of the
Our participant is Callie from
 Coffee and Cardigans
Check out her cute stylings.

70% off of $1500??? Gasp that is outrageous, welcome to the land of the rich and the famous! I am so envious of these photos and your trip, I could use a palm tree right about now! The nannies swiiming in the pool probably make way more than I do-hmmm.... Love Callie's travelling scarf inspiration.

The photos of your trip are great. The palm trees and the mountains against the blue sky look beautiful, and oh what a lovely pool... It's bleak and rainy here so I am yearning for a little sun and warmth!
Hope the wine tasting went well. xxx

Oooo 70% of 1500 is still steep, but I guess it depends on what it is. And what is with those moms that don't mother their kids on cacao and still rely on the nanny.....ahhhh

Waaao, sounds like such a fun trip!! Very pretty pictures too. Sorry about the luggage and the flight mixup, what a bummer :(


Cara said...

Palm Springs looks divine and so relaxing! I love the printed shorts you are wearing in some of the pictures. Sorry to hear about the botched flights/luggage, flying can be such a bear!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

wow, those pictures from Palm Springs are gorgeous. Bummer to hear about your traveling woes (airline companies seriously amaze me with incompetence sometimes!)

Sounds like you are having a great time with family! Fall break at home with my family's cooking is just what I could use right now! haha
