Rock Reach House in Yucca Valley, CA.


Today, darling hubs and I are heading on a little road trip to the desert. First, we’ll drive to Las Vegas to attend, wait for it, METALCON. Yes, I will get to channel my inner Ivanka Trump and hobnob with the steel building industry’s finest in the City of Sin. Oh boy. (Perhaps I spoke too soon?) Fortunately, it gets better. Much better.

On Friday, we’ll head to Yucca Valley to play in the desert and get ready for an open house on Saturday at Rock Reach House, the high desert modern escape by Blue Sky Homes (which is hubby’s modern home building company). You may have seen it in Dwell? Or remember when I stalked Trina Turk there (sorry Trina!)?

It’s open to all so if you are a modern architecture enthusiast (and even if you’re not) or simply adore the desert, we’d love to see you there! That’s this Saturday, October 23rd between 10am and 3pm. You can find all the info and RSVP right here.

Did you know you can also rent the Rock Reach House? Look at the incredible bachelorette party these girls had there…

Girls gone wild. In the desert.


I suddenly want a feather headdress. And isn’t this such a creative idea for a bachelorette party? I never did have a bachelorette party… Maybe I should make up for that now?

Getting down in Pioneer Town.


p.s. If you do come, you MUST do lunch or dinner at Pappy and Harriet’s. Trust me.

p.s. A huge Happy Birthday to my Mamala + Happy 37th Anniversary to both of my parents. My Mom got married on her 18th birthday! Holy snap peas, can you imagine?! I don’t think I was out of a training bra by my 18th birthday. I’m pretty sure I’m still not… Love you Mom and Dad. <3
