Since living in L.A. I signed up to receive email notifications for "deals" in the area (groupon, living social, bloomspot, daily candy, scoutmob, etc.)- anything that would help save money as Steve and I explored the area.
Well, on Monday night I was checking my email and I saw a living social deal for a hotel in Palm Springs that just made me laugh. I showed it to Allison and she had actually seen the exact hotel on someone's blog last month. Can you see why we laughed? How fun, right?
That's what we thought, too! After a few phone calls, our room was booked for the very next day.
On Tuesday morning, Allison & I dropped Walter off at doggie daycare and headed to Studio City for a taping of "The Talk" which neither of us watch, but since my friend Lisa and I had attended a taping last month and received about $600 in gifts- we thought we would try again. This time we only received shampoo, conditioner, and some other type of hair treatment. Oh well, you can't be a big winner every time. I had the best time watching Allison's expression and lack of enthusiasm throughout the whole show. Afterwards, we put the top down on our little car and took off for Palm Springs!
The views were amazing!

We sat out by the pool, had facials, and rode into town for to have dinner at a wonderful Thai restaurant.
We enjoyed our short stay in Palm Springs and hope to visit it again sometime. We hated to leave, but we were excited that Allison's husband, Brian, was arriving that afternoon. Again, we enjoyed the beautiful scenic drive back to Marina del Rey!
