Aaand I'm Back ...

L: The fam going to breakfast early morning. R: The Spanish style, poolside casitas.

I'm back! Got back yesterday after taking a long escape to La Quinta Resort & Club for the 4th of July weekend. I know what you're thinking ... yes, it's usually very hot this time of year but seeing as it was going to be gloomy and cold here on the coast we took a gamble that the desert would have lower temperatures and we were so right. We did lots of outdoor dining, swimming and lounging. I couldn't believe it, I actually got through three magazines while I was out there.Woo hoo!
My three year old pretending to blend in with the flowers.

The grounds of the resort are absolutely amazing. All Spanish style, the resort originated as a Hollywood hideaway in 1926 for stars like Greta Garbo, Ginger Rogers and Clark Gable. I told Eric that if we every had the opportunity to build our dream home I'm pretty sure I would come back here for inspiration–I'm in love with the Spanish style casitas with the red roof shingles and blue trim. But until then it's my new-to-me favorite place for a little R&R. I cannot wait to go back.

These are beautiful!!! Looks like it was a phenomenal weekend! Have a question, random- what kind of stroller is that? Me likey.

Beauty File: It's a Bugaboo and we love it. The only down side is they're not that cheap. But we def made the investment knowing it would go through our two kids and have fairly good re-sale value. It was much like buying a car. Plus, the turning radius is stellar. You can practically turn the thing on a dime with your pinky! I know, I've tried.

what a gorgeous sunny weekend, and the spanish style is adorable. I also love the shingles, brick color and blue trim, it reminds me of some parts of brazil.
