Meeting Mr. Rex


Meeting Mr. Rex has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Every other month or so for the past 26 years my family would drive out to Palm Desert to visit my grandmother. And every time we’d pass the Cabazon Dinosaurs I’d beg to relive that Pee Wee Herman’s Big Adventure moment. Sadly there was never enough time. I used to live about an hour away from these robotic dinosaurs, but never once did I make the trip to see them.

So when we booked my birthday weekend in Palm Springs, I made sure of it that we stopped to meet Mr. Rex. I wore this adorable Mossimo off shoulder dress along with my favorite summer hat for this sight-seeing moment. It was so windy, though, I ended up spending most of the time holding on to my hat and pulling down my dress – probably not the wisest style choice in the windy desert. But I didn’t care. I was just ecstatic to finally scratch this moment off my bucket list.

  • That California vitamin sea 🌊✨
  • #ad | Sunny weather calls for a day of beach cruising and naps in the sand 🌊🌴☀️Here's a peek into my beach bag essentials! I've recently swapped out most of my chemical products to mineral-based alternatives, and this @coola Mineral Body Sunscreen has quickly become a fave. Why? It's SPF 30, certified- vegan, coral reef friendly, uses more than 70% organic ingredients, AND has a sheer finish. Check, check and check to all my sunscreen requirements 😎Have you switched to mineral sunscreens? @ultabeauty #coola #mineralalltheway #suncare #beachessentials #summerready
  • I should really clean this mirror more often 🤔 Anyway... here’s my uniform as of lately. Shoutout to @aninebingofficial for making the best “lived in” tees 👊🏼 #liketkit
  • Spent the day taking some serious (and necessary) self care. Experienced some strange and kind of scary things over the past week because I wasn’t taking care of myself. Poor diet, lack of sleep, etc. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to take care of yourself. It’s the best thing you can do for your wellbeing and state of mind✌🏼
  • Always a sucker for a beautiful car 🙌🏼🙈♥️ Thanks for the royal treatment @mynuface! Check out IG Stories to see my #fixmoment and the new FIX Line Smoothing Device I’ll be using every night for the rest of my life 😆👏🏼
  • A day late but the feelings don’t change just because it isn’t Valentine’s Day anymore 😉 Thankful for this man and everything he does for us (Charlie Boy included 🐾). Thank you for having patience, for listening, and for always loving me, even at my worst. Love you today, yesterday and everyday after ♥️ Ok, mushy rant over 😎
