Well, I'm obviously doing a poor job on my goal to post more regularly! Today I'll tell you about my two day excursion to Palm Springs a couple of weeks ago. I was to meet my dear friend, Beckie at 11:30 at the PS Airport when her plane landed. So off I went, leaving my house around 9am. Shortly after 10am, Beckie called to say that she had missed her connecting flight in Phoenix. Dagnabbit!! Well, I decided to sally forth and find something to do in Palm Springs when I got there. It was a nice drive down. I had never been to Palm Springs before. When I arrived I drove through the town and figured my way around. It is a pretty small town so that didn't take too long. On my way I discovered a movie theater and decided that seeing a movie would be a great way to kill some time. So I found a parking space and headed over to the cineplex. As I approached I was looking at the movie posters outside and I didn't recognize a single movie! How odd! I figured I must have found the uppity movie theater of foreign films. So I figured I would ask where the regular theater was. Ha! All the theaters in town were playing movies for the International Film Festival! What lousy timing on my part! Now, I have seen a few foreign films over the years, but only on recommendation. I'm more of your romantic comedy fan.
So I had lunch at a fast food place and found the library. I sat in the library reading my book and then took a walk in the adjacent park. It was quite a relaxing day, actually. I finally got to pick up Beckie at 4:30pm. We checked into the hotel and met up with our roommates. Beckie, Kimber and April were all there for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference. I was just there to visit with Beckie! We had a fun evening walking around Palm Springs and visiting. The next day I took photos of some of Kimber's swaps. I like this one the best!
Beckie, Kimber and I went to breakfast in the hotel and visited some more. I had a great time until it was time to go. They had to get started at Leadership and I had to get home for Cub Scouts. Here is a pic of me and Beckie. Aren't we cute?
On my next post I'll tell you about the Cake Decorating Class I'm taking with my mom. I have pics of my first two cakes, too!
