Palm Springs Trip Recap!

If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram and Snapchat (find me as preptista!), then you know that I spent this weekend adventuring around Palm Springs! I've been vacationing out in the desert for as long as I can remember, but I haven't actually gone out and explored in a really really long time. And let me just tell you, it turned out to be one of the best weekends I've ever had! (Beware, this post is super photo-heavy #sorrynotsorry)

We started off our adventuring by tracking down #thatpinkdoor that it seems like everyone who goes to Palm Springs takes photos with. I had been wanting to go see it for years, but it never seemed to fit in with our pool time vacation plans, but I am so glad I finally made it there! It's even more exciting in person than it looks in the pictures! If your ever in town, I highly suggest making this stop. (You can find the pink door at 1100 Sierra Way!)

Just a couple of houses down from the pink door is another fun house with lions flanking both sides of the front door. The owners always hang fun things on the lions too like these crab floaties! 

On our way to lunch, we stopped at the Saguaro Hotel to admire the colorful exterior. I was having serious color envy the entire time. I mean how can you not swoon over that hot pink! 

Our last stop of the day before pool time was a trip to The Parker for a late brunch. We ate at their restaurant Norma's, which is like a high-end diner with some of the best brunch food you've ever had. Afterwards, we wandered around the hotel enjoying the property and I stumbled upon Gray Malin at the pool! I've talked about him a million times before on the blog, but he is my absolute favorite photographer and I am pleased to say he was equally as kind as he is talented. 

On Sunday before the pool, we brunched at Eight4Nine, which is the one of the cutest restaurants in Palm Springs with high ceilings, natural light, and splashes of hot pink at every turn. The best part is the food was even better than the decor!
