I'm Gonna Party Like It's My Birthday



My Birthday is today! That did not stop me from starting to celebrate this past week though...As his gift to me, hubby took me away for the first time since Landon was born, on an overnight trip!. Landon's Auntie Rae Rae and Uncle Sharpy babysat. Landon did not shed one tear when we left or the whole time we were gone! I thought he would die without us, shows you what I know!


We drove out to Palm Springs. We started the trip the right way with a stop at In and Out Burger.


If you haven't had one you have not lived. They are so fresh and amazing. This one even had the In and Out University next door! These people are serious about their burgers!!!





Later that day, we arrived at mt sisters palace, I mean house. She was kind enough to lend it to us (her second house) and we loved it! Jacuzzi, pool...and hubby brought the fresh mint and was serving me Mojitos immediately!


Next we decided to have drinks at The Parker. You know the hotel from the Bravo show "Welcome to the Parker". It was gorgeous. We toured the grounds and say the bocci court, croquet court, and lemonade stand, and decided we must stay there some time. So cool. I enjoyed my drink very much!



Look at their cool coasters they use at the bar.




After our drinks we ate dinner at The Purple Palm, which is possibly the most fabulous place I've ever been excluding my honeymoon in Greece! We dined pool side and continued drinking Mojitos. We at an amazing meal of carpacio, oysters, shrimp and steak frites. AMAZING.



Notice the decor, purple leather chairs!




To top off the night we headed to Melvins Piano Bar. We danced the night away. I was loving the older couples dancing the Lindy! The lounge singer Nino, did a great job with his keyboard mounted to the piano and his strobe lights! I loved it!





It was seriously the best birthday gift ever. So fun! Look how gorgeous!




The fun didn't end there! I did some serious shopping!! I'll post all my loot tomorrow!

Happy Birthday! What a fabulous trip (appropriate for the fabulous mom, no?) and I am so jealous of all the mojitos you had - half the time when I go to a bar in Pittsburgh they don't have the mint to make them. And in West Virginia? "A mo- what?"

Now that you know Landon can survive sans parents where else will you go?

Lauren said...

Aww! I am so glad that you had such a Happy Birthday! Your husband planned a fun weekend. I would love to try In and Out Burger sometime, but we don't have them on the east coast.

Have a nice day!

Happy Fabulous Birthday!!!! You look amazing. The trip sounded like a blast. I don't know if I could stay at the Parker. Some of the things they showed prior to guests staying the night were a little skeevy? That is the germ a phobe in me talking. Did you read my post? Oh yeah ,5ft from The George Benson Sat night...good times. PS my birthday is Wed. Go aries!

Happy birthday!! What an amazing birthday get away! Did you husband plan that all by himself? I am seriously impressed.

BTW, I made your blue cheese fondue from Easter the other night for my book group, and it was a total hit. Fondue is always so festive, and this was a nice change from the normal gruyere I usually make. Thanks!

Happy Birthday! It looks like you're having a fantastic week. My daughter did not cry at all last year when we left for the first time either. I talked about it so much before we left I guess they just know it's ok and you'll be back.

Have fun!
