First stop was Palm Desert, California to celebrate my mom's birthday with family at Las Casuelas Restaurant...where they make the best guacamolé table side!
Then, it was off to Scottsdale, Arizona to watch the San Francisco Giants at Spring Training! Go Giants!!!
We stayed at the recently refurbished historic Valley Ho Hotel.
Like stepping back in time.
My cousin, Julie lives there. She treated me to lunch at Arcadia Farms and gave me a tour of the area.There are so many good restaurants in Scottsdale!
One night, our group had dinner at elements in the Sanctuary Spa at the "Chef's table." The curtain on the left opened to reveal this...
After Scottsdale, I flew back to San Diego to spend some time with my mom. Of course, we had to make a trip to the best Target I have ever been to (it's relatively new)...which is near her home.
Have you seen all the fun black and white they have right now?
And this kid's set up is adorable. Need baskets?
By the way...look at the pretty striped throw that Liana got at Target (and the orchids from IKEA)...she is SO clever at mixing high and low.
I had been hearing a lot about the Lido Marina Village. Here are some highlights and you should check it out yourself if you are in Newport Beach.
And of course, I had to stop by Roger's Gardens...while Howard read his book in the car. That's ok...it's fun to wander by yourself. Spring is springing...
Always inspiring...and they had more black and white!
Back to reality. And all the boring household things. But I have some fun projects in the works so I'd better get on it!
Hope you are having a great week.
