Even puppies need shelter from the torrential downpour!!!
OH MY GEEZ IT’S SO A-FRICKIN-DORABLE!!!!!
Sorry, I just couldn’t contain myself. We got to Palm Springs yesterday and set the booth up in pouring rain. I seriously looked like a drowned rat by the time we were done – my jeans were soaked up to the knees and water flowed from my hair like a river.
We woke up to this: dreary, drizzly desert. Oxymoronic alliteration??
Luckily, we saved the artwork from complete destruction by covering all the pieces with thick plastic last night. It could have been a dreadful wake-up call!
DOUBLE RAINBOW! Oh, no wait… just a regular rainbow…
We had enough of a reprieve in the rain that I was able to go get lunch.
Turkey Cranberry sandwich on whole grain bread from Koffi
I also got super fancy chocolates
from Cafe Chocolat
. The one on the left is an aged balsamic truffle
– So sticky sweet and richly delicious! The one on the right was a honey lavender truffle
– tasted like perfume. Not in a good way.
I also got treated to this gorgeous ring
! My boss gave it to me for my birthday!
I IS SO SPOILED!
After the show wrapped at 4pm, we met up with a couple of artists at Monsoon
, one of the top-rated Indian food restaurants of Palm Springs.
Eatin’ at Monsoon durin’ a monsoon. Tralalala!
I started with one of my favorites – Mango Lassi!
The four of us (oh, hi there, Robert!)
split chicken tikka masala, baingan bartha, and chicken korma.
Of course we had to end with gajar halwa, or as I call it: butter-carrot pudding!
We were originally supposed to check out the new Liam Neeson movie, but working all day in the rain, freezing your ass off can really exhaust a person.
I retired to my room with a tall glass of Stone IPA.
Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny!
Praying for dry weather!!
