I just wanted to say happy Thanksgiving to all you guys! I’m very thankful for all that I have and the people that are in my life. Looking back at where I’ve been and what I’ve been through…I am truly greatful. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Don’t ever take anything for granted. If you have good friends, family, and a significant other …tell them how much they mean to you and be thankful to have them in your life. We’re defined by not only our actions but by the people that inspire us, that care for us, and love us.
Pooh and I picked up a new toy. No, not “that” kind of toy! We got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Best Buy. There was a special promo from ShopKick (click my referral link if you’re interested – offer ends Nov 23rd), that if you purchase a Galaxy Tab you also get a free USB adapter and a $50 gift card! We’ve been wanting a tablet for a while and this one seems to be the best contender to the iPad2, so we thought we might as well take advantage of this great deal!
Blogging definitely feels easier on this thing than on my phone. :) We didn’t feel we needed a 32gig since I use Google/Picasa to store my images and Pooh uses Google Music to store all his music. We watch movies but we have an external hard drive that we can use to store and switch out files. If you want to just have everything on your tablet, then a 32gig might be for you. Otherwise, a 16gig should suffice. I still haven’t been able to play with it much but I’m loving it so far. I use an iPad2 at work and think both are great…but I think I’m more of an Android kind of guy. ;)
That is all. :/
Pooh and I made a last minute random decision to go to Palm Springs this weekend for pride. We had work on Saturday but figured we could go up afterwards and stay till Sunday. Our friends David and RC said they’d join us so off we went for a crazy random weekend adventure! A friend of ours lives in Riverside so we were going to just stay at his place, but we ended up booking a hotel near Toucan’s.
On Saturday, we partied the night away at Toucan’s. We had such a good time! I would of thought they’d stay open another hour because of daylight savings time but they closed at 1:45am. :( It was ok because I was tired from driving us up.
Surprisingly, all got up pretty early on Sunday…7am early. I guess we were all just so excited to get Sunday Funday started! We grabbed breakfast at some random diner called Goody’s and headed to Downtown Palm Springs. We watched the parade a bit then went to Hunter’s. We wanted to check out the festival but it started raining, so we just partied till we tired out. Boy did we get tired! We had so much fun! We drank, we danced, we laughed, we spent a couple minuted oogling over a hot as hell Go-Go boy, but then it was time to head home. I didn’t want to drive back to SD too late so we grabbed some food and coffee, sobered up, and made our way back home. It was a pretty creepy drive at night through the mountains and the middle of nowhere. I definitely don’t ever want to drive that way at night ever again!
It was such a crazy fun weekend! I can’t wait to spend another in Palm Springs again soon. It felt as though we were there for a week! The cool thing is we are off today so we have another free day to have fun! Yay for Monday Funday! :)
Pooh and I had an amazing time this weekend! We decided to do something a little less crazy this year. We figured that we should celebrate our anniversary by doing a romantic getaway. So we went to Palm Springs to relax and just enjoy our time together. We were supposed to leave on Monday to party in Weho for Halloween but we enjoyed it so much we decided to stay till Tuesday and do Halloween in Palm Springs.
We stayed at Escape, a gay resort hotel that’s been recently renovated. A friend of mine highly recommended it so we thought we’d try it out. We wanted to go to a gay hotel that was nice, cute, classy, and not “cruisy” (…if you know what I mean). We checked in on Saturday and were pleasantly surprised with the property and how cute the rooms were. I absolutely loved our room. It was pretty large and the bed was SOOOOO comfy! It was fully equipped with a nice TV, Sofa, Kitchen, Microwave, Fridge, Private Patio, etc. The pool was also very relaxing and was heated! We spent A LOT of the time in the pool during the day and once the sun went down we were in the hot tub just relaxing the night away. Our resort was hosting a Halloween party for a couple of the resorts on Saturday night. There was a costume contest, free alcohol and food, and we got wristbands that let us “party” hop the nearby resorts. It was nice because it let us see what the other resorts were like and we got to meet a lot of cool people. Pooh and I made quite a few friends during our stay in Palm Springs. Everyone was really nice and friendly! After the Halloween party we all got out of our costumes and just had a ourselves a pool/hot tub party. One thing I loved about Palm Springs is that the pool and hot tub are open 24/7!
We didn’t really get to try out much of the restaurants in the area since we were spending so much time just lounging at the pool. Maybe next time we’ll try to find a nice place to eat. Any recommendations? Instead of checking out on Monday, we decided to stay another night. We went to the Halloween Block Party on Arena’s Blvd in Downtown Palm Springs. It definitely was not as crazy as Weho’s Halloween party, but it was still very fun!
Pooh and I had such an awesome time and definitely needed this getaway. We’ve been partying so much lately that it was a nice change of pace to just relax and do nothing. I can’t wait to go back to Palm Springs! Oh and how amazing is it that Pooh and I won the Halloween Costume Contest at the party our Resort was throwing?! We won a free stay at the resort =) Hopefully we can use it sometime soon.
Here’s some pictures from the weekend! Pooh and I had some “sexy time”, but unfortunately we didn’t take any pictures. I tried taking video but horribly failed at it. It’s pretty hard to hold my phone to record the action while getting pounded extremely hard. Lol I guess I should get a tripod…or a camera man. *shrugs*
