|I couldn't get Mj to get up here with me|
Earlier this year I won a two night stay at the Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs. The hotel was free so we were going even though we set off having no idea of what there even was to do there. That was of little concern particularly considering that we really just wanted to do nothing. We took the scenic route there. Windy roads and no guard rails. Scary! So I was not behind the wheel. We checked into our hotel room Friday around 4pm and immediately set about taking a nap. Once we woke up we were starving so we went online and found a place for us to eat. We ended up at this Mexican restaurant where the servings were gigantic and the food was delicious. When we got back we changed and went out to the hot tub. Can you see the giant Quesadilla and Miller Light still sitting in my tummy? The weather was a perfect 80 degrees all weekend and even at night there was a perfect hint of warmth in the air.

On the way home Sunday morning we stopped at Ruby's Diner for brunch. It was my turn to drive so Mj could watch football on his phone which was fine with me as long as he can handle my singing. When I'm behind the wheel Sirius radio is on the Love channel where I somehow know the words to just about every song that comes on. Air Supply, Barry Manilow, The Bangles. It's like a time machine and I love it.
It was a pretty low key weekend. If you think about it we ate more then we did anything else! We didn't do too much that we couldn't do at home but there is something about staying in a hotel and doing it in a different town that makes it fun, exciting. Different somehow. We weren't that far from home and we didn't do much but we were together, we were relaxing and that's basically all we really wanted out of our mini weekend getaway.
