Phoenix Hosts the World

Phoenix was the place to be last weekend. We decided we better check out some of the action! Friday night we headed to downtown Phoenix to check out some of the Super Bowl things. Again, didn't bring my camera so these are all courtesy of my phone.

There were all kinds of booths to check out.

It was pretty crazy!

We made it to the mecca of games-The Puppy Bowl!! 

We used to watch this every year!! The field was much smaller than I expected!

Then we headed over to the Tostitos area. They had all kinds of fun games.

And free food!!

We got a little silly.

And enjoyed more free food-Keurig!

It was a pretty cool atmosphere.

Saturday we were up early to head to the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament.

These are terrible pictures, but here is Bubba Watson teeing off.

Here was the winner!

We had such a great time! It was one wild weekend. We have definitely kept it pretty low key since then! Hope you enjoyed all my random pictures today!! Have a great week!

Vegas Weekend

Hello again friends! For my birthday, Matt planned a little getaway for us to Vegas for the weekend.

We stayed at the Monte Carlo and had a pretty good view of the strip from our room. 

Friday night, we grabbed some food and went to go check things out. We forgot our camera so I only had my phone-I apologize for the poor quality.

We headed over to the Bellagio. We enjoyed a fountain show, always a favorite of ours!

We headed inside and checked out more of the beauty.

Friday was my actual birthday so we enjoyed a little gelato to celebrate!

Saturday we did a little shopping at the outlets. I had a blast! I think Matt even had fun too!
We came back to the strip and did some more walking.

We headed to the Luxor to enjoy a midday buffet.

Here was my first plate...

And here was my last...I won't share how many were in between! ;)

I think we were there about two hours! Haha, we took several breaks. It was great!
We then headed back to our hotel and spent a little time at the pool. That night we had tickets to Mystere, Cirque du Soleil. It was so incredible!!! I recommend it everyone!

We spent the rest of the evening walking around (again!) and checking out more of the strip.

Sunday morning we spent a little time gambling. We doubled our money which was enough to cover our room bill! I think we may have to head back again soon! (Okay, okay, we bet $1...) It was a great way to celebrate my birthday with my favorite guy! Come back soon and I will share our bucket lists with you!!

Our Life Lately

Hello friends! I'm back!! Did you miss me? I guess things have been a little crazy around here lately...Our days and nights are filled with work. I will be thankful for that for the time being. But let's catch up on what's been happening here in the Valley of the Sun.

Matt's parents were here a couple weeks ago. Anytime we have guests over it gives us motivation to finish another quick project. This time we chose the guest room. Here is what it looked like a couple days before they arrived.

We added a homemade headboard as well as a little sign. Here what it looked like a few hours before they arrived.

Next we plan to add a few more pictures and maybe some flowers. 

We have so been enjoying our citrus trees. 

We squeezed a whole bunch of lemons off our own tree to make some yummy lemonade!

Matt's parents were here for a week, but we were working so we only had the weekend to show them around. On Saturday morning we took them for a hike up South Mountain.

Then we headed over to Mesa Marketplace for a little shopping. I hadn't been there all season so I stocked up on a few necessities!
That Sunday we took them over to TopGolf. You  may remember me telling you about that when my family was here. I was very excited to join in on the fun this time!

It had some very gorgeous views as well! Monday Matt took his dad golfing. We did a little birthday shopping and celebrating while they were here, too.
I also grabbed this picture on my way to work one morning. It was just so pretty!! 

As always, we love to host. Come stay with us anytime! Stay tuned for a recap on our Vegas weekend as well as all the excitement from this past weekend in Phoenix!
