This past weekend I celebrated my birthday in Palm Springs (my actual birthday is tomorrow, so I’m still 28 until further notice!). We didn’t arrive in the desert until pretty late on Friday because I could not sneak out of work as early as planned. As soon as we got to the hotel we dumped our bags and headed down to the hotel restaurant for a much needed and well deserved cocktail.
Saturday was all about the pool after squeezing in a quick workout at the hotel gym. Turns out the Seguaro is party central with a DJ and tons of bachelorette parties. We quickly changed our mindset from “let’s relax” to “let’s order a cocktail ASAP!” We actually only ended up lasting a couple hours before we wanted some peace and quiet and then hit up Native Foods across the street for some quick vegan eats.
I discovered my new favorite dessert of all time while in Palm Springs! Dole Whip! Have you heard of it?! It’s like fro-yo but it’s made from frozen pineapples from the Dole Plantation and it’s A-mazing! It’s vegan, gluten free, and definitely not sugar free but that’s what makes it so delightful.
I ended up needing a nap on Saturday and woke up close to 7pm so we enjoyed some wine lying on a daybed by the pool. I love the warm weather at night! We don’t really have the warm nights here in San Diego and it’s kind of my favorite.
Brittany was such a trooper and woke up early Sunday morning to take a yoga class which kind of sucked. I got in a HIIT workout in the hotel room thanks to my Tone It Up girls! I did the HIITy Bitty Bikini Workout and it was perfect for the hotel room.

Sunday was wayyyy more relaxing at the pool. All of the brides and their posses had checked out and it was much nicer. I read, laid out and then we hit up the ice cream shop for another serving of Dole Whip before heading back to San Diego.
And now it’s back to reality with the craziness at work. I will probably lose my mind between today and Thursday but then life will return to business as usual. C’mon Friday… where are you?
Come back tomorrow because I’m giving one of you $50 to Road Runner Sports for my birthday!!
