Scottsdale Love

As most of you know, I just got back from Scottsdale this past weekend.  We didn't do too much other than relax, relax...oh and relax!  Soaked in some sun, spent some quality time with family, and took in the beautiful scenery.  Here's a little montage from the weekend.


My mother-in-law has this beautiful and rustic cross wall in their home.  I love how eclectic it is...want to make one for myself on day!


There is a beautiful view in the backyard...tons of wildlife and a ravine which I bet looks amazing during a big storm.  That edge of blue on the bottom is their infinity edge pool!


And of course, the sunsets are amazing!


Hubby makes a MEAN margarita: 2 ounces {white} tequila, 2 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice, and 1 ounce agave nectar.  SO yummy!


Loving the ocotillo and agave plants.  Of course, the saguaros are plenty abundant too.


There is a serene courtyard, complete with fountain and white roses climbing the wall!  My idea of rest and relaxation right here.


Zinc Bistro is a great French restaurant that feels like you been transported to Paris the second you sit down.  The basiled chicken and brie sandwich is amazing!


Ahh!  I just love Scottsdale!

Where do you go to escape for a long weekend?  Any fun trips coming up?

  1. I love Scottsdale! I used to live in Phoenix & my friends & I would go to Scottsdale on the weekends, the nightlife there is kinda crazy, but lots of fun!

    & Arizona is my go-to place to escape! :)

  11. Beautiful! Thats the way to do a vaca..lots of relaxing!

    We are going to St. Augustine, FL for Memorial Day weekend. It should be fun but not my idea of relaxing with a total of 3 kids/babies there. At least it will be a good getaway.
