My favorite things...

I have lots of favorite things and this is the newest item to be added to my list. I found this gal through blog stalking (don't judge...we all do it! lol) and I just love this idea. She started making these charms because she found some in a store and didn't want to pay their crazy prices! She decided to make her own and now she does it for others too! I've already had her make THREE, one for me and two for gifts.

Mine has our initials and our wedding date.

This one is for my little sis who is expecting her 2nd baby girl on Feb 5th! I had both girls names and their birthstones made for her.
The other one I had made was for my best friend Colie and it had bf and love on the charms and she LOVES it and wears it every day. These are great gifts for yourself or others.

Go Suns!

Wednesday night we went to the Suns game against the Indiana Pacers. We were ready for a good game since the Suns were on a winning streak but not so much. It was tough to watch until the last 5 minutes. The Suns rallied back to tie the game... please note that they weren't within 7 points of the Pacers all night... so they tied the game with 0.9 seconds left and it was Pacers ball. We were ready for a chance to come back in OT BUT just then the Pacers scored a 3 pointer to end the game! Win or lose it was a fun date!

Happy New Year!

2008 was great and we are ready for an even better 2009!

To celebrate we went to dinner at the Salt Cellar. This is a really cool place that really is a cellar. All there is above ground is a parking lot and the door to get it. Once you go in, you go straight downstairs to the dining room. I know it's strange to have a seafood restaurant in the desert but they ship in their food daily. Pretty cool huh?! For starters we enjoyed raw oysters, escargot in mushroom tops. Spencer ordered steak and lobster and I had scallops with king crab and baby shrimp cream sauce. For dessert we had a white chocolate mouse layer cake.... everything was SO YUMMY! After dinner we played games with friends and then headed home to watch the ball drop.

Last year we went on a hike so we decided to make it our New Year's Day tradition. First we stopped by my sister's new house to help move them in and clean. They've been waiting for a few months now for this house and we are so happy they have their own place for their family. Then we headed up to Carefree to have some lunch at Big Earl's greasy eats (the new year's diet starts tomorrow LOL) then out to our trail hike. It was a beautiful day, 70 degrees and just awesome to be outside! We love this trail, so many saguaros and it's very quiet and peaceful.

We are so thankful to have each other!
We wish you all a very happy new year!
