Yip, yip, YIPPEE, friends!  The weekend is here again, and today I’m finally getting around to sharing a few snaps from last weekend in Palm Springs.  Last Friday Eric and I headed to the DoubleTree by Hilton Golf Resort in Palm Springs, and y’all, it was seriously an amazing couple of days.  I so enjoy it anytime Eric and I can get away for a couple of days just the two of us, and Palm Springs is kind of our favorite.  It’s a pretty quick, two-hour drive, but once you’re there, it’s like being a world away.

Eric and I got to check out the DoubleTree in Palm Springs last year when it was brand spankin’ new, and when we were invited back this year (we must have been on our best behavior), we couldn’t resist.  While the pool area was a little more crowded with families than last year (and to be fair it was Mother’s Day weekend), you just can’t beat the grounds here.  The entire hotel is situated on a golf course, so there are lakes (ponds?), palm trees and mountain views everywhere you look.  It’s just NICE roaming around the property.  Also, the outdoor tables used for breakfast in the morning make for the perfect deserted spot to relax with an afternoon cocktail.  And by cocktail, I mean order yourself the dee-licious sangria in the last photo above.  And probably go for the quesadilla (switch out the chicken for short rib) on the side.  You won’t regret it – live yo’ best life, girl.

And the staff here, well they’re seriously the best.  Everyone here is beyond friendly and helpful, and when the desert wind carried my room key off into the sunset one night, the beyond nice guy at the front desk offered me a warm chocolate chip cookie.  You, sir, know the way to my heart.  (And if you’ve ever had a DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie, then you feel me.)  Also, our favorite bartender Frankie (loved him on both of our visits) can let you know all of the best places to eat, drink, and see in Palm Springs.  Eric and I now have two very favorite restaurants in Palm Springs thanks to the recommendations of Frankie and other friends at the DoubleTree.

And now for a little about the outfit, obviously!  A couple of weeks ago I got to check out the brand new Jofit store in Newport Beach and fell in love with all of the fabrics.  I’ve got a full post coming your way with their killer leggings soon, but for now, this striped t-shirt dress is pretty much pack-able perfection.  It’s super soft and doesn’t cling like some t-shirt dresses can.  (AKA, you’ll have plenty of room for that sangria and quesadilla.)

So after my long-winded Palm Springs gush, here’s hoping everyone has an amazing weekend ahead.  Plus, stay tuned next week for a few more snaps from the DoubleTree resort pool.  Happy Friday, y’all!
