Anniversary Vacation to Scottsdale

Last weekend, my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. Since we got married on a long holiday weekend, our plan was that each year we would go on a vacation for our anniversary since we had extra days off. Originally, we had plans to stay home because life has been pretty busy for the both of us lately between work, traveling to weddings and the hubs traveling for his side business of doing photos and videos. But, me being the jet setter that I am, I knew we both wouldn’t want to be home that weekend. So, with about 6 days notice, we booked a long weekend down to Scottsdale, Arizona. We’ve been there before a number of times but it has always been work related so we’ve never gotten the opportunity to explore the area. since it’s only a short flight away, we thought this was the perfect place to go explore for the weekend!

Dinner on Friday night at Olive & Ivy. The weather outside was PERFECT and this patio was just adorable!

A great way to kick off vacation.

We enjoyed a good amount of pool time so we could get our tan on.

We had our anniversary dinner at the J&G Steakhouse at The Phoenician. The restaurant was on the roof and it overlooked Scottsdale and their beautiful pool area. Interesting fact, the pool had a dive in movie that night which they played UP on. Coincidentally, I gave my husband an “adventure book” as part of his wedding present when we got married, and the card I gave him for our anniversary was an UP theme too!

Macaroni and cheese is mine and the hub’s jam. We have to order it anywhere we see it on the menu somewhere.
