We arrived in Phoenix last SATURDAY....and I immediately remembered just how much I love it there.....I think it's the light and the climate.
DEB TURTLE and I had made plans to meet up on SUNDAY to do some sightseeing round downtown Phoenix, but thanks to a local marathon being run that day and the entire area being closed down we changed our plans slightly. Craig and I drove down to Deb and Doug's favourite Mexican Restaurant.....
Craig went back to the hotel to do some work and I went home with Deb and Doug for a while. Deb baked some of her wonderful chocolate chip cookies for me to take back to the hotel (I can confirm that her cookies taste as good as they always look!) while I got to meet this
not so little guy...
He is SUPERCUTE!
On MONDAY Craig flew down to Austin, Texas for a meeting ....which allowed me to use the car and go shopping! I had 'googled' all the shops I wanted to visit and, after dropping Craig off at the airport got on my way.
My favourite store was one which Deb recommended I visit - SCRAPBOOKS ETC......I could have spent the entire day there; there was so much to look at!!
TUESDAY saw me having breakfast with Debbie from TELLING OUR STORY...
After saying goodbye to her, I went off to have lunch with a friend we met through my godmother...
Craig and I did a bit of shopping in the afternoon and then went to see the second 'HOBBIT' movie at night...I wasn't terribly impressed I have to say!
We managed to have breakfast together on WEDNESDAY morning, then squeezed in the VERY last bit of shopping before heading to the airport for our flight back to the UK.
By FRIDAY lunchtime I arrived home.....
And that, my friends, is the week that was....much more exciting than most of my weeks are going to be...let's see what next week brings!
I do hope all's well in your little part of the blogosphere!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
