Check That Off The Bucket List: Palm Springs Part Two

A month ago, I went on a girls' trip to Palm Springs! I cannot believe it was one whole month ago but I'll tell you one thing - it has practically felt like Winter here in San Diego compared to that grueling 120 degree weather we were hit with on our weekend getaway. [In case you missed it, here's Part One of the trip!]

On our last morning/afternoon in Palm Springs, we were pretty excited to hit up brunch at the Ace Hotel. Cara-Mia had nothing but wonderful things to say about it and I just wanted to take in the beauty of this Mid-Century-esque hotel I had seen all over Pinterest! I was not disappointed - by the food OR the scenery.







Why, yes, that was the largest piece of French Toast bread I've ever seen as well. And I ate every single bite. It was delightful. In fact, each of our meals ended up looking phenomenal. Two thumbs up for King's Hwy - an old school diner feel with food that certainly does not disappoint.





There's really just something magical about Palm Springs. And that's what I love about California. You don't have to venture very far away in order to find something magical. The majestic mountains against the sky. The richness of the green palm trees literally everywhere you look. And, of course, the history. I mean, after all, Marilyn vacationed there...




And now I can say I had my picture taken with Marilyn Monroe ;) She will always be my favorite Hollywood star. We drove away from Palm Springs soon after that picture was taken [and we made a Starbucks pit stop for ice cold anything because that's just how hot it was. Even to be outside for those five minutes!]

We had one more stop left. And this next one... this was a huge bucket list item for me. Stay tuned!

I can't believe that's already been a month! Scary how time flies.

I am glad you liked the Ace, though! I'm starving now that I've seen those photos.
