It has been one of the best two weeks of the year and I am so thankful for my family, boyfriend, and my fierce work team for making me feel so gosh darn lucky.
Take a look at my life in pictures from my recent travels across the country.
After a couple hours of waiting, planes were finally allowed to fly! I was cleared to fly to the land of chain restaurants, sunny skies, and perfect freeways. Next stop, Phoenix! Besides, did I mention I had a baby shower to plan!?
Whenever I land in Arizona I immediately feel a sense of calm. It is such an easy place to be and the Phoenix airport is one of the best in the country. Also, knowing that I am in the same city as my favorite little niece makes everything better. One of the reasons why I decided to make a pit stop at my old stomping grounds is because my sister Jackie and her hubby are expecting another baby! My mother and I had arranged a little “sprinkle” lunch to celebrate the baby news, and give my sister one last celebration before her life turns into mommy madness. Take a look at my pics of where we hosted the baby shower. The stunning, Hyatt Gainey Ranch Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona was absolutely perfect. Talk about a gorgeous setting, excellent service and damn good food.
The next few days my boyfriend and I spent the remainder of our time in Arizona working out, playing with my niece and enjoying the good life (which included a cheat day!). My brother-in-law knows the best restaurants in town so I was super impressed when he took us to POMO (http://pomopizzeria.com) in downtown Phoenix. It was some of the best pizza we ever had – we can’t wait to go back for more! #foodporn
Like I said, playtime is a must! I never knew I could have so much fun playing princess (or maybe I did!). I love what my sister did to my niece’s room – such a neat way to showcase the alphabet! My boyfriend was particularly happy that Lego’s was on the agenda. He can build one badass looking castle.
I am currently working on a project in the Big Apple that is going to enlighten some many of you. I promise to share more news later in the year but for now, why don’t we take a picture stroll around the city!
