My Red Letter Saturday!

I am sooooo excited! I wish there was a way to type excitement better....well, anyways, my Saturday started out quite as normal. I went and got my nails done and on the way home stopped at the mailbox and SURPRISE, there was a box from Myrna from Heirlooms. Oh what sweet precious gifts. I had to leave them though, because my hubby took the night off and we were going to dinner at the Roaring Fork in Scottsdale.

Sweet box decorated on all sides....see the teacup!!

Everything wrapped in beautiful black and fav!!
Such a sweet notecard...

A sweet votive candle PINK!

And a darling crown magnet!!

Dinner was fantastic as usual and then my hubs said, do you want to get dessert here or stop at that Sprinkles cupcake place you have been talking about? Oh, I want to stop so bad, but I think they are probably closed. We went there and they were open...well sorta! The place was packed and it was supposed to be closed at 7 but it was already 7:15. We got our selections and I carefully held the box all the way home. Of course, I was waiting to take pictures.

Look at that bottom right....that is pure chocolate heaven!!

As we meandered through the streets to get to the freeway, all the side streets were barricaded off. Hubby at first thought there must me a parimeter set to find a criminal...but then it dawned on us...nope, the president is coming to the Phoenix area tonight.

We get on the freeway and we are chatting away, excited to try our cupcake. All of a sudden I said to my husband, there is no traffic on the other side of the freeway. The words were no sooner out of my mouth when I saw two motorcycles with lights blazing followed by about 50 police cars.....I was screaming...yep, I really is the president's motorcade!!!!!! Sure enough, there was the president's limosene. Now, that is the closest this ole girl is gonna get to a president, any president. I am telling you....we were both excited. There is nothing like seeing a presidential motorcade in person. It is quite impressive! It was too dark to get a picture, even if I could have...but I had to share it with you...oh, and the cupcakes!!! YUMMO!

Yep, a Red Letter Saturday!
