A Surprise Fun Day!

Thursday I got a call from a friend asking if I had any plans for Friday and Saturday.  I said no, nothing planned.  She asked if I would like to go to a resort with her and shopping on Saturday.  Uh, hmmm, let me think.....YES!
So that is what we did.  We stayed Friday night at the Cottonwood Resort in Scottsdale.  We ate at a restaurant that we had never been to and enjoyed the jacuzzi under the stars.  We stayed up until 2 AM talking....
Saturday we eventually got up and went shopping at Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale.  We window shopped at all the stores you want to shop at but can't!  Then we spent MUCH TIME and fun at Charming Charlies,  Sur Le Table (ooh, ahh) and then a great lunch at Culinary Dropout rounded out a fantastic day.

These a just a couple pics I took.  The first store was in the Bragato shopping center.  That store was gorgeous and elegant. 
This last picture of the Southwest something...if you can't see it was over $800.00.  This was at My Sister's Closet.  I restrained and didn't buy it...but I did buy an adorable sugar and creamer which you will see soon....and another fun treat at Sur Le Table.
Thank you Sally for a wonderful weekend.  Bloggers....I am telling you....girlfriend getaways are the BEST!!

Leaving a comment with Blogger or Google (don't know which one is the culprit) is a challenge. :) I hope I got it right. AWESOME that you had such a great getaway with your buddy. Nothing compares to an escape with a friend. I'm glad you had such a great time!!!

Love you Memorial Day table setting!!! You always set the cutest tables, Ceekay!!!

We've been baking in the 90s. It's too early for that!!! My poor plants are just frying.

Hope all is well with you.......L, Dana
