Love this elegant little doggie. :)

CB and I did a bad thing. We'd been booking everything for our Labor Day trip to Santa Barbara to help us relax during our grad school application process...Thursday night, however, I got the sudden and intense need to get outta dodge.

So we canceled all of our resos for SB and escaped off to Palm Springs last Friday night. We ended up staying at a little quiet inn with 8 total rooms. All of the rooms were huddled around a sweet private pool, so we jumped in right when we got there - instant relaxation!
We of course did the requisite Ace Hotel thing on Saturday and baked, grooved, and drank in the sun. Sunday we took the scenic route home and spent the rest of the day chillin. I'd say our lil' getaway was a success. :) We want to go back with friends in October just because it's so easy and cheap if you do it right. I simply refuse to accept that summertime is ending!

Just had to re-post this from Katie's blog - can you believe this is lil' Emma Watson? She's changed so much since the early Harry Potter days, and I've gotta say I love it. Her new haircut is fantastic!
