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.
I don't 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??

I love reading your personal blog! Jude is absolutely adorable !!

About the hair? Hm.. I think you should cut it! Or cut it in the spring/summer when it gets hot! It's always nice for a change.. I had long hair up to my butt, and recently got a haircut.. My head felt so much lighter! lol.. And my hair is alot healthier now =D

I've been to use the restroom after a long camping trip in the area. Looks nice. I'm happy that you are having a good time. You deserve it girl.

Gigi said...

hmm.. u have suchhh pretty hair and it reminds me so much of kim kardashian. i've been thinking of going shorter too but haven't taken the plunge because it would take longgg to grow out.
if you've had long hair for some time and are over it, then cut it. you have a pretty face so anything will suit you- no joke. :)

Charming Vanity said...

Jude is as adorable as ever. I can't imagine u with shorter hair but i guess it's always good to go for a change. Probably a shoulder length bob?

That hotel looks beautiful!

I think since fall is here and it will soon start to get cold, you might want to keep your long hair to keep your neck warm lol.

I've been years growing mine and it's about as long as yours. I'm debating cutting mine too. I think long hair is youthful and if I cut mine, it will probably never be youthful again. I would say cut it, so I can decide what to do with mine! haha
It might enhance your blog- you could start all over with new hair tricks.

I'm literally 20min away from there, TOPS!! Haven't been to that casino though. Just driven by. Glad you had fun!!

I say you just cut a small amount off. Don't do anything drastic. I know you feel the need to do some drastic change because of the situation you're in, but you'll feel a lot better if you make this decision a little later down the road. Whatever you do decided to do with your hair though, I'm sure you'll look GORGEOUS! Take care!!

NOOOOO DON'T CUT IT!!! Long hair is so pretty and with short hair u cant really do anything with it besides leave it down...i had long hair 3 weeks ago and recently cut it to my shoulders and i hate it i cant do anything with it

blessed2bloved said...

I think you should....you would totally look cute with Victoria Beckem kind of hair cut. And about the weight you don't need to lose any. Your beautiful just like you are right now!

car5139 said...

noooo doo not cut it!! seriously long hair is gorgeous and girls that have it are lucky to have it that long !

Elle said...

I would just go for a trim, or get a lot of layers so your hair feels lighter. I would consider cutting it once spring/summer comes back around but not for winter. It really does keep you warmer!!

You are a great mother and person which makes me believe Jude will grow up to be extremely caring and loving like you. Has for the hair I love your long hair but change can be a great thing!!! Xxoo

I don't think you should cut your hair! Its so pretty and long. And you look bella you don't have to lose more weight. If you do decide to cut your hair donate it.

Wow, what a coincidence! I work at Pala Casino as a cook and was working that night Cedric was performing. I'm a big fan of your YouTube channel and blog so it was a pleasant surprise to see that you mentioned the casino. Glad you had a good time! :]
