T Cook's

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

We pulled up to the Royal Palms Resort and watched the other restaurant goers get out of their Bentley's and Jag's dressed to the nines while the valet so carefully parked their cars front and center. I looked at my husband dressed in a black polo tee and shorts and said "I think we under dressed." He took one good look at me and said "Well, you do have holes in your pants" (in reference to my ripped white denim that are totally in right now)

T Cooks has been on every must try restaurant list in the Phoenix area (every time I search on Google) so it was about time we gave it a try. We made our way to the Mediterranean inspired courtyard where the aromas of fresh flowers and wood burning from the many fireplaces instantly hit your nose. The charming ambiance made you want to grab a drink and stay awhile.  

Fall in the Desert

Monday, October 26, 2015

We had such a great weekend celebrating all things fall at the Carefree Desert Gardens and channeled our inner kid at Anthem's Autumn Fest.

Ray Villafane created an "Enchanted Pumpkin Garden" at the Carefree Desert Gardens. The intricate details that he is able to achieve is so incredible. I mean, I have tried my hands at pumpkin carving (ended up with a big whole in the front of the pumpkin) and it is no easy feat.

Carry On Only

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Standing at the baggage claim carousel (at the airport) watching everyone grab their luggage while you keep waiting, hoping that you catch a glimpse of yours. Then you hear it...the buzzer goes off and the conveyor comes to an abrupt halt. You are alone and your hopes and dreams of having clean undergarments for your trip have been crushed. 

Has this ever happened to you? If so, you know that it is time to start traveling with only a carry on.  It not only saves you time and possible aggravation but it can also save you money (now that most major carriers charge for checked baggage).
