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 Hotels.com 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 order...um, yeah, um... where was I going with this?
