Went to the NHRA Arizona Nationals, wearing these vintage Chanel studs &
an Auden multi-cross silver necklace (Check out the Auden website - LOVE their stuff!)
You guys know I love to find great restaurants when I go/move to a new city...
If you're ever in Scottsdale, put these two places on the top of your list!
The "Chopped Salad" at Cowboy Ciao was the best salad I've ever had. IN. MY. LIFE. (and I don't even like salads since my pageant days, years ago)
Everything at FnB was incredible!! Just ask your server what they recommend & go with that.
Trust me. (P.S. How do y'all like my little honey's shirt? haha)
The huge cross cuff with chain is the newest addition to my collection! Been wearing it a lot with all black ensembles. My earrings are from The Montage Collection. (Thanks Myrna!)
Toured the Wrigley Mansion with my adorable mama (seriously, look at how cute she is!!)
We also toured the AZ Biltmore and ate lunch there, too, which I highly recommend!
Guess what else we did while my mom was visiting....???
We took a hot air balloon ride in the dessert with these guys - AMAZING!
We went up with 2 other balloons that afternoon.
I got to get inside the balloon as it was on its side, being blown up (which was HOT)
because I wore a dress... I know, I know... who wears a dress to go on a hot air balloon ride.
This was my view from inside the basket... very pretty!
Mom and I up 5,000 feet!
Beautiful sunset in the AZ desert.
After our (rough) landing, we had a champagne toast and hors d'oeuvres in the middle of the desert.
Shopping in Carefree and Cave Creek
(which is another thing I highly recommend if you are in the Scottsdale area)
In Carefree, be sure and eat lunch at English Rose Tea Room and have a late afternoon sangria at the newly-opened Venues Cafe!
Mom and I got these amazing sterling silver aztec-looking rings in AZ!
I loved being in Scottsdale for the two months of Spring Training! We saw a lot - and ate a lot! Hoping to get back there soon!!
