Life, Lately.

Pretty sure I am a horrible blogger. I haven't posted since the Super Bowl. WORST! Three days after our Super Bowl party, my little honey and I left for Spring Training in Scottsdale, AZ. My life was pretty much baseball, Lululemon, Nike, and sun for the better part of a month and a half. Sorry for being MIA, but my fashion blog would be pretty boring if I posted my everyday outfits that have been consisting of workout clothes. Here's a few things that have been happening in my life, lately.

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...
We found two we loved: Cowboy Ciao and FnB Scottsdale. This pic was taken at FnB.
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 girl. 
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!!


  1. that hot air balloon ride ending with cocktails in the desert? amazing!

  2. I'm BEYOND jealous of your hot air balloon ride, doll! That's something I've always wanted to do.

  3. I love Cowboy Ciao and that salad is AMAZING!!! Went out to Scottsdale on a girls' trip a couple of years ago, and we all ordered one to split. We devoured that one so quickly that we ordered a second one. And almost ordered another but we were afraid our waiter would think we were pigs! (this was in addition to all of the entrees we each ordered)

    Yum. Now you have me craving it.

  4. AH love all of your jewelry!!! The hot air balloon ride looks like it was so much fun too!!
