I am SO excited, we just got an invite in the mail a few days ago from a friend getting married in Phoenix! The wedding is September 19, so we are going to fly down for 2 days. We are staying at the Sheraton Crescent, looks nice!

Anyone have any good ideas of Must-Do things in town when you only have a few hours to spare?

Any Phoenix girls up for a BDW breakfast get-together on Sunday September 20??

          How hot is it in AZ? I'm thinking it must be a break from this crazy hot summer we've been having in TX but maybe not...

          I'd love to go there sometime. Have fun Abbie!! :)

          We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

            well I live in Phoenix, but it's my first summer so I can't tell you what September will be like! But I can tell you that we just had a heat advisory because it was going to be 114. I've never seen 114 before, it's HOT!

            Jamie, I wouldn't come here to escape the heat!

            where's the wedding at?

              Oh, I LOVE Phoenix and luckily you won't be there in July when I was ... OMG it was hot, but its so cool with all the little water spritzers everywhere.

              We stayed at the Buttes in Tempe and it was AMAZING!!! We had a fabulous time in downtown Tempe. I can't recall all the things we did and places we went, but you will love it!!!

                hmmm, i just looked up your hotel. I live on the opposite end of the city, so I don't really know what to do in that area.

                However, there are SOOOOOOO many great restaurants in Scottsdale. What kind of food do you guys like?

                My fav thing in AZ so far is Sedona. If you have time I'd definitely head up there and to the Pink Jeep Tour - Broken Arrow trail. It's amazingly beautiful. When there I found out they do weddings up on the rocks with this AMAZING view of the mountains and OMG it was so beautiful, I wanted to have my wedding there.

                  Let me tell ya...it's like being on the surface of the sun here until mid to late October! yup.....last year I was still in shorts and tank tops sweating at halloween....uh huh!

                  I'm not sure exactly where your hotel is...things to do...hmmm...someplace air conditioned..if it was the cooler season I would def. recommend a hike, but seriously it will still be 110ish out here. Phoenix is def. known for it's shopping if your interested...there is fashion square and the biltmore. Oh yeah..and there is this place called LAST CHANCE that is basically Nordstroms discount...I've gotten lots of INCREDIBLE deals!

                  If your interested in restaurants let me know where your hotel is located!

                    With only a couple hours maybe go shopping, or out to eat. The Fashion Square mall in Scottsdale is nice and there is a really good breakfast place down the street called The Breakfast Club. They have the best iced coffees. You're not the only one that gets excited about AZ so don't feel bad. FI and I are moving there early next year. It is hot in the summer, but the heat doesn't bother me. FI and I were the only people in the pool at our hotel when it was 112. Ha ha!
