It's Mondayyy... and for everyone else in the country, day light savings was this weekend, but for us here in Arizona, we keep the same time year round.
It's kind of confusing adjusting between Mountain Time and Pacific Time, but at least I don't have to lose an hour of sleep (however, I will need to double and triple check the showing time for The Bachelor tonight... hey Pacific Time people, what time is The Bachelor on?!).
John and I had a great, relaxing weekend, and I am finally feeling caught up on "life"!
We started the weekend with dinner in Old Town Scottsdale at Citizen Public House on Friday night. Our sweet friends Paul and Jennifer treated us in celebration of John finishing the Arizona bar exam.
It was such a great time, and we are looking forward to returning the favor when Paul finishes the bar exam this summer!
Saturday morning we headed out to Surprise, Arizona for some fun citrus picking.
In Michigan there are apple orchards that I have been to, but this was my first time at a citrus farm.
There were over 78 species of citrus fruit grown at the farm (but not all are in season at the same time). We had all sorts of oranges, grapefruit, and lemons to taste test before deciding what to pick.
A lot of the low lying fruit was already picked, so we had to use a citrus picker to reach the top branches.
We picked about 40lbs of fruit (and for only $20!).
It was a beautiful day to be outside, and we will most certainly be coming back!
After citrus picking, we had to figure out what to do with all of the fruit before it went bad, so we juiced about 10lbs of oranges! I am not normally an orange juice girl, but anything fresh juiced tastes incredible.
If you have any other ideas of what to do with all the citrus, please let me know.
We are currently averaging 2 grapefruit/hour!
For dinner. we ate at a fantastic Mexican food restaurant called Rito's. The portions are as big as your head, but yummo for sure!
It's officially sandal weather here in Arizona, and I am already rocking my Spring pedicure.
It was definitely time.
On Sunday, Jennifer and I convinced Paul and John to join us for a spin class at DC Ranch Village.
It was so fun to do a class together, and I kind of hope John will come back and do more with me. After the class we enjoyed lunch pool side and soaked up the sun.
To end the evening, John and Scout hiked to Tom's Thumb - a point in the McDowell Mountains.
John is trying to take advantage of the nice weather and get in as many hikes as he can before it gets too hot for the summer!
