Getaway to Scottsdale, AZ

The hubby and I had an amazing getaway to Scottsdale last weekend. We celebrated Valentine's Day and took advantage of no work on President's Day. We golfed, we sunbathed and I got to enjoy a wonderful massage at the spa. It was such a nice escape from the cold, dreary winter we're enduring in Chicago. It seems like the entire country is under a cold spell (even Florida!)... I think Arizona was one of the very few places that was warm, sunny and nearly 80 degrees! I was bummed to come home, but every trip has to end. I can't tell you how many times I said to myself..."Why don't we live here?" I'm sure there are a ton of reasons not to live in AZ, one being the fact that is HOT (125 degrees) in the summer...another being how freakin awesome Chicago is June-October! Here are a few photos I took:

One of the many amazing sunsets!

We stayed at Camelback Inn Resort & Spa. We found a great deal on I would HIGHLY recommend the resort to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in AZ or even a honeymoon. The grounds were beautiful, the service was top-notch, the food was delicious and the spa was to die for! Here are a few picturesque shots from the resort's website. You know when a website over promises with their words and pictures? This was not the case. These photos are NOT embellished or overly retouched...Camelback REALLY was this beautiful! They have a sister resort in Tucson...Starr Pass Tuscon Resort & Spa. I've heard great things about it too!
