Weekend Roundup

Desert Botanical Garden



This weekend I am..

  • heading to the Chihuly after Dark exhibit at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden
  • keeping the TV turned off all day on Saturday. Last week we started no TV Saturdays in an effort to get off the couch and spend more time outdoors
  • itching to do some spring shopping (I recently picked up this and this from Banana Republic)
  • getting back into yoga at my favorite studio, Sumits Yoga. I already went once this week…I forgot how hard it is!
  • planning for an upcoming vacation, which is the best kind of planning
  • considering a purchase from David Yurman…I’m interested in adding a couple of rings to my collection (this and this)
  • reading No More Dirty Looks, so far it’s been fascinating (and scary)!


I hope you all have a bit of fun and relaxation in your weekend plans! Oh, and a very happy belated birthday to one of my favorite aunts. Sorry I missed your special day earlier this week!!

      Well I did mean Susan since I missed her birthday…but now I recall she was planning to visit AZ this winter and promised to take me out for dinner and didn’t! A sisterly lunch and shopping at MOA is a great birthday celebration for both of you. Hope you had fun!
