We stayed at the Traida resort, which was beautiful! Since our check-in time was not until 1pm we decided there was nothing better to do than to shop and bond...
Our first stop was Trina Turk. They were having a 20% off Mother's Day weekend sale... so why not! We were greeted with complimentary mimosas. Two mimosas later and we each were buying brand new suits. Haha! BUT on that note let me tell you that you will NOT regret purchasing a Trina Turk suit even after the mimosas have worn off...
Thrifting and vintage hunting... my mom bought a killer chair plus a super fun hat with bedazzled elephants on it (so her) for $30.
We made our own perfume and body oil at this place called Sinfulicious, which was SO much fun! My signature fragrance ended up being chocolate and mandarin orange and my mom's was lavender and vanilla.
We ate lunch at this awesome little place and then finally headed back to our hotel. My mom and I were laying out by the pool and I jokingly said, "We have pretty much done everything you can do in Palm Springs in one day except get tattoos."... My Mom replied with, "Lets do it and gets matching ones!" We ultimately ended up with similar tattoos that matched both of our styles. I could not love them any more!
That night we went out to dinner where my mom gave me the sweetest mother's day gift (I will share later this week) and then we headed out to the casino where she showed me how to play video poker on Game King. I am still confused, but so much fun!
The next morning we headed out to my favorite breakfast spot, King's Highway. We shared the date shake and dungeness crab omelette and it was TO DIE FOR. So freaking good.
After breakfast we visited the Moorten Botanical Garden, which was beyond amazing! It is truly a must see if you're in Palm Springs. We each went home with the coolest little concrete plant holders and new succulents and vowed make this a tradition each and every year for Mother's Day from here on out.
When I got home I was greeted with kisses and flowers from my husband and hugs and homemade gifts from my boys.
It was a wonderful weekend indeed... well minus the part where Ronin decided that brunch was a dumb idea and started protesting. But other than that...pretty perfect ;)
