Palm Springs Weekend!

This past week J and I were talking about how great it would be to get away for our anniversary. This year our anniversary is on a Tuesday, so we dreamed about getting away for an entire weekend together. Low and behold, at the dinner last week my parents declared that they got us a hotel in Palm Springs for our anniversary!!! What!!! You would have thought I won the joke. I was jumping around and acting like a giddy 5 year old. A whole weekend away with my hubby..yay! I called in sick to my work on Friday...shhhh and we were off! We went straight to our hotel, checked in and went right down to the pool.  I have to admit that it has been a hard transition going from being a student with a very flexible schedule to working full time and being inside an office from 9-6 everyday. I miss being outside. Anyway, we were laying out by the pool for literally 5 minutes and what do you know, I get stung by a bee. All of those who know me, know that I'm allergic to bee stings. My arm began to swell and itch. It got HUGE. It was red and swollen all weekend. I took a few benadryl and I was out for the night. On Saturday we woke up and took a walk. We found the cutest cafe where we got a cinnamon roll and hot chocolate. We spent the day laying by the pool, swimming and relaxing. We ate a lot of good food and spent a lot of quality time together. It was just what I needed to re-charge! On our actual anniversary we might do a little somethin I will blog about that later.
