Asian Mexican Fusion

I was finally able to ease my craving for a banana split at Proof at the Four Seasons Troon North, thanks to a friend's recommendation. It was our lucky day since they were offering buy one get one complimentary so we indulged. A little dessert before dinner never hurt nobody, am I right?

Desert Vibes

We were on a quest to find an ice cream place that serves up an old fashion banana split. Vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries, pineapple, hot fudge, banana, whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Temperatures reach well over 105 degrees here and yet I still can't find an ice cream parlor that serves a banana split within a 30 mile radius. The struggle is real! There are tons of frozen yogurt places where you pick your own toppings which I happen to be horrible at (who would think that Fruity Pebbles and Gummi Bears don't mix). 

I may not have been able to find the ice cream that I wanted but we were easily distracted by breathtaking views. We had to pull over and do a little exploring.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to the man who taught me what hard work really is, the man who taught me if it is broke fix it (or at the very least rig it), the man from whom I get my no filter no nonsense attitude. This man I am grateful to call my dad!! Love you!

To celebrate our move to Arizona we decided to start hitting up the plethora of restaurant options there are in the area.

Cafe Monarch is located in Old Town Scottsdale and offers a set menu that changes every week. They post their menu online so you may take a glance over before you go.

We packed up and headed out early Friday. Said goodbye to our old home and strapped ourselves in for the long cross country journey.

The plan was to drive about twelve hours a day switching off and on. I ended up driving about four to five hours a day because my other half wasn't thrilled with my driving nor speed (I tend to have a lead foot and make sporadic jerky stops). He likes to set his cruise control to the exact speed limit and we just sit back and watch all the cars pass us by. 

I am not complaining though since I got to read, watch movies, and sleep my way through Maryland, Virginia, Arkansas and Texas.  

Moving Day

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Today is the day that we say goodbye to our first home and buckle in for a very long car ride cross country to settle in to our new home in Arizona.
