Girls Weekend-Scottsdale, Arizona

For Labor Day Weekend Jaicy, Alysse, Mollie and I headed to Scottsdale, Arizona for a much needed girls weekend!

We stayed at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort and Spa thanks to the reccommendation of Mollie's friend Nicole Marriott herself! We heard so many wonderful things about this resort from many sources and it definitely lived up to what we heard.

The spa at the resort was our daily destination.
 We had some delicious breakfasts at Sprouts.
 Lots and lots of our time was spent in the pool in order to escape the Arizona heat.
 On Saturday we all got a swedish massage and on Sunday we all got the most heavenly facial ever. Since we bought spa services both days we got access to the spa for the whole weekend! It was great!
 We ate some yummy salad and pizza one night and then some excellent Mexican food the next.

It was so good to catch up on each others lives and relive old memories together. We plan on making girls weekend an annual thing and you better believe we have some big plans for next year up our sleeves already!

A Day in LA

A few weeks ago Jeff and I both randomly had a Thursday off of work. His dad had given him a gift card for Flemings a while ago so we decided to head into downtown Los Angeles to spend the day there and then eat a fancy meal.

Our first stop (and the only one with pictures) was a spot from a movie. Can you figure out which one?
 500 Days of Summer! This is the bench that Tom takes Summer to and says is his favorite spot.
 It definitely looked more appealing in the movie than it did in person with all of the homeless people sleeping a few yards away. Nevertheless, we sat and enjoyed the tiny park among the tall buildings for a little while.

The rest of our day was spent observing busy business men, exploring downtown LA by car and by foot, a trip to the fashion district for some new fabric (YAY!), and then a wonderfully delicious meal at Flemings.

It was a great way to spend our random Thursday of freedom.
