Friday Favorites!

I left New Mexico bright and early this morning to start the drive to Scottsdale.  
John is waiting until the movers come to get our things and then he will be joining later this evening.
The rest of this weekend will pretty much be spent moving in and unpacking... Oh, the joys of moving!

Linking up for Friday Favorites with Amanda!



favorite restaurant

The first meal that John and I ever ate in New Mexico was at a restaurant called Two Fools Tavern.  We found it only fitting that our last supper would be there also.

Now, I don't know if this is my favorrrite restaurant, but there is something to be said for a first and last memory!




 favorite thing about New Mexico  

One of my favorite things about the New Mexico is most certainly the scenery.  I mean really, it is absolutely beautiful.  Now, to be honest, when I first moved here I didn't appreciate it at all, and not surprisingly, now that I'm leaving I can't get enough.

Big blue skies and beautiful sunsets!




favorite treat of the week 

So a new shaved ice place opened up near me, and I'm not going to lie, I have been there 4 times this week.  I'm pretty much a shaved ice connoisseur... when I was a little girl I even bought a shaved ice machine off of QVC with my own money.  It didn't work, so I returned it, but point being, I know whats-what.

And this stuff is amazinggg... please note, this is very different than a snow cone (which I do not like).




favorite giveaway ;)

Aww, yeah! Don't forget to enter the giveaway below! The Nordstrom anniversary sale is in July, and if you're anything like me, a little extra spending money will be happily welcomed!
