I probably shouldn’t admit this so freely, but I kinda love Taco Bell. I basically survived high school on a steady diet of meximelts and Dr. Pepper. (HOW AM I ALIVE?) When I first started working at LifeSongs, someone had left a stuffed toy of the Taco Bell chihuahua in the studio, and the joy I got out of squeezing it and hearing it say “Yo quiero Taco Bell” was ridiculous. (Sorry, coworkers.) When I was pregnant, I couldn’t eat much without feeling nauseated, except for – you guessed it – Taco Bell. And, when we moved into our house just before my son was born, we actually found a Taco Bell hot sauce packet hidden inside the inner workings of our doorbell. (?!?!)
Taco Bell seems to have a way of popping up on my radar. So imagine my amusement (and, let’s be honest, excitement) when I saw that their latest marketing venture was a pop-up Taco Bell themed resort in Palm Springs. Can you imagine? Secret menu items, taco manicures, floating across the pool on giant inflatable sauce packets…it’s like a hilarious and surreal dream vacation!
It’s one vacation I won’t be taking because a) I’m starting to feel a bit weird about my underlying Taco Bell enthusiasm and b) the rooms SOLD OUT within 2 MINUTES! Probably for the best. But, there are still plenty of Taco Bell drive-thrus (and many other food options, roadside attractions and vacation destinations) that await for whatever summer fun adventure you may take. There’s one thing I’d suggest you bring along – and no, it’s not hot sauce. It’s US!
When you’re on your summer fun road trip, wouldn’t it be great to stay uplifted by hearing “God is good – all the time!” instead of “Are we there yet?!” (Or even “yo quiero Taco Bell?”) Plus, it’s FREE!
