Mother's Day Weekend. (Or, that time I met Sarah and we were bffs)
May 13, 2010
Mother's Day Arizona Weekend Getaway 2010 was a keeper.
We stayed at The Boulders Resort in Carefree, AZ. Oh my goodneth.
It was beautiful.
And there were these wild pig looking things called Javelinas that were burrowed under our condo -- 12 or 14 of them, with babies. They are not supposed to be dangerous but they have REALLY big FANGS and can spray you like a skunk. We thought they were cute.
Until they started after us...
Because they look really scary scratching themselves and all. ha.
The resort was lovely. It always amazes me how much color there is in the desert.
This was the view from our deck. Straight ahead were The Boulders. And to the right, the sunset.
And, I got to meet Sarah and Baby Kit, Annika and Gunnar (as well as the dogs Luna and Charlie, who reminds me of Dauber from that Coach TV show from 1989 or so. And the chickens. Like Rosie, the goth chicken.) As Sarah would say, they are so "full of the awesome." As were the lemonbars and the lemon tree and the sewing room and That Baby. Oh dear.
I could go on and on about Sarah and how she is just as genuine and funny and smart in person as you would expect her to be. I'm short on time, though, and well, I think you get it. She is just that good. They all are. And I was so lucky to have a few hours (some on Friday and some on Monday) with her during our trip.
The rest of our stay looked like this:
I'm so not kidding. Hubs stays on for another 6 days to play golf every year. This is his way of buttering me up before sending me home to the kiddos. As wonderful as our time was, I sure did miss those girls.
Back soon. Have a fun little pillowcase project in the works. xoxo
