what a weekend........ the fireman and i ended up booking a super last-minute trip to Palm Springs to skip town and relax! a mere two hour road trip filled with about 3 different food stops and one very cozy {passed out} French Bulldog. our first stop was hilarious (at least to me)....... the fireman, the Frenchie, and i finally got on the road with humongous coffees in hand when we made it about 15 minutes from our house and we got a little hungry. oh yes, we didn't even make it onto the freeway when we decided to pull over and grab a few tacos for the road!! mind you we ate breakfast about 45 minutes before we left. this is SO standard for us. what can i say, WE LIKE FOOD! here's how our trip has been so far... yep, we're making it a 3-day-weekend!
