Greetings From Pasadena

I've been MIA the past few days because I'm still recovering from a long weekend with friends and family. Saturday we decided to stay the night in Pasadena. I know what you're thinking...Why spend the night in Pasadena if you live only a 15 minute drive from there?. Well, first of all, I just needed a little getaway, sort of like a mental-health weekend. I also grew up in the Pasadena area. Both my kids are native Pasadenians so it was a homecoming of sorts. It really is a great town with its world famous Rose Parade, museums, shopping, dining and wine bars galore.

I got a great deal on Hotwire at this 4 star hotel....The Westin in Pasadena. It is a beautiful hotel with very comfy beds! I paid only $95 a night. I saved $54 compared to and Expedia. It's worth checking out, especially if you don't need to know the name of the hotel until you book it.

Check out the spandex-clad woman in the Fitness Center pic at the bottom, right corner. Too funny!

Now that I'm all rested and my mind is back in working, yeah, um... where was I going with this?


  1. I take pride in my ability to read between the line. So...did you get a facelift?

  2. I'm glad you took a little bit longer to kick back and relax!

  3. Pasadena totally rocks! (totally not bias since I live here!) when I first ran across your blog it caught my eye because The Bodega Wine Bar in Pasadena is my fave! Hope you had fun (face lift or not)! ;)

  4. Hahaha! I just read Kristen's comment.

    Long weekend... recovering... rested...

    JK, glad you had a good time.
