Pala Casino and Resort
(our room is where the heart is)
I was so excited to pack up and get away.I feel like I say that a lot, but sometimes when things are not going as you wish they would, its best to get out. I was asked to go out to the city of Pala (I have never heard of it before now) and do hair and makeup for the nicest women on the planet. The occasion was a high school reunion, and lucky for us (me, Jude, and Carly) it was at the Pala Casino and Resort, Pala Ca.
As we drove up that’s when we really got pumped for our weekend.
Everything down to the waterfall at the entrance screamed “VACATION!”
Oh, before I forget! On our way up to the resort, there were tons of stands: fruit, plants, and jerky! I know a lot of people who love jerky so we stopped and got a few sacks. I got the HOT flavor for my brother Raymond. (If you read this, love you brother!!)
Back to what I was talking about, this was our restroom.
The tub came up to above my knee, it was bigger in person than it looks from this angle. Too deep for my honey though.
know what the designers were thinking with the comforters, but this was so cute. Jude loves Carly, he doesn’t
warm up to too many people so easy either.
Since we were hungry we decided to put the room service
to the test! We both ordered Cokes and Spicy Chicken Sandwiches and Fries. So yummy! The tiny bottles of ketchup and hot sauce were sooo
cute! Even the Coke bottles were smaller than usual.
One of the awesome things about our room was the view!
Jude spent so much time standing near the window to see all of the other guests and planes that pass through. He has better eyes than me!
After a job well done, I wish I would have taken some action shots of my clients all dolled up, we decided to ring up a little treat. Apple cobbler with a side of vanilla bean ice cream. It was so good we had to stop ourselves from licking the plate!
Jude was tuckered out. He has been really fussy with teething and stretching and its been a difficult time for the both of us. I mixed up a few teething tablets and rubbed his gums till he knocked out.
That night Cedric the Entertainer was performing and we had awesome seats…
…a seat in front
of our hotel window haha
While enjoying our free show, we ordered yet again. We started with the Pala
Salad with Ranch dressing and their raspberry vinaigrette
. It was the best ranch I’ve
had in a long time.
For the main course we had roasted squash, mashed potatoes and Filet
Mignon. I am not a big red meat eater
but I had no words to describe how good it was.
That night we went down to the Casino for an hour to check out the Black Jack table to try our luck. From these pictures it looks like all we did was eat haha
. We ate like queens…and baby king.
The trip was great! If your job is making women feel a little better about themselves and get paid for it…its my dream job…its a blessing Jude gets to come with me. It didn’t hurt that our whole trip was taken care of. THANK YOU!
Jude reminded me that my hair is getting way too long. I have been thinking about changing it up a bit. I used to have my hair cut really short to my ears in a bob ‘a line’ cut. I loved it! I think I want to lose a little more weight before going for it!
What do you think? Should I cut it??
