prompt contributed by ME :)
You’d think if I contributed a prompt about travel I would have done it to brag about some awesome trip we went on this year. No. We take a couple of little trips, but nothing I’d consider “travel”.
We started off 2011 in Palm Springs, ringing in the New Year with our friends Tif & Jer and Felicia & Joe. A few short weeks later my sister & I drove out to Las Vegas for my SIL’s bachelorette party. Jen (my sister) and I stayed in the Bellagio for the first time, danced the night away at the Marquee in the Cosmopolitan, hung out in a lounge at the Comso and watched 2 guys attempt to play pool, took pole dancing lessons, dance another night away at Palms while DJ Jazzy Jeff spun, drank and ate tasty food… all while I was I getting over a NASTY cold.
In February, Hubs and I went to Petaluma, CA, to attended the wedding for the aforementioned bachelorette, his sister Linda to her new husband, Mark.
In May, I went back on the road with my sister, Jen, to Solvang, Los Olivos, Berkeley, and San Francisco. We visited our favorite winery, Brander,went olive oil tasting, met up with some Bees, and road the trolley.
A month later in June, Hubs and I headed back out to Las Vegas to stay at the newly renovated Tropicana Hotel. We spent a lot of time on the pool and ventured away from the Tropicana twice, once for a trip to the MGM Buffet and the other for drinks in The Chandelier at the Cosmopolitan. After spending two nights in Las Vegas we drove to St George, UT for a quick visit with Hubs’ mom & stepdad.
Hubs and I went back to Palm Desert in August to celebrate our anniversary and my walking for Graduation. Hubs booked us a room at the Saved By The Bell Marriott, aka JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa. Since our good friends Tif & Jer live in Palm Springs, we go out there a lot. This time we tried to make it more touristy by staying in a hotel and visiting the dinos on our way home.
At the end of August is we went back up North for Hubs’ grandmother’s 90th birthday and
we’ve I’ve been home ever since. Hubs, on the other hand, was all over the US on business trips until mid November. I know it looks like we’ve done a lot of traveling, and we’re lucky in that we can go on a lot of little mini vacations, but our plan for 2012 is to take a big vacation somewhere we’ve not been before. I’m hoping for something tropical.
