Hi there! Have you ever heard of the Waste Management Open in Scottsdale? Well, if not, it's basically a huge party with a golf tournament going on in the background. I had never been before and it's a big annual event here in the Valley, so Matt and I went yesterday to experience what all the hubbub was about... We were there for a total of two hours before we had had enough. We can no longer put up with places that just house hoards of drunk slobs falling over themselves (and onto you too in the process) -- which yes, means we realized that we are officially OLD. That's okay with us though, because we left, headed to an [early bird] dinner and enjoyed some cocktails, came home, and watched Audrey Hepburn movies on Netflix while sipping tea. (To some of you this may make us the most boring people on Planet Earth, but ask yourself this: can anything really beat an Audrey movie marathon? Uh, no.)

Happiest of Mondays to you! How has the first day of the [typical] work week been for you? Mine flew by, man! As did my weekend, per usual. When did the days go from being 24 hours to 2.4 hours? Before I know it I'll be old and gray -- just like my mom always warned me would happen the older I got. There she goes again, that mama of mine... always being right and whatnot. (You hear that, Mom? I admit it. You really are right 100% of the time. ::Insert red and underlined "100" emoji::)

Hello! I know that a lot of you on the East Coast are having to deal with Blizzard Jonas. (Is that what it's called? I really don't remember snowstorms ever getting formal names when I was growing up in Ohio, but I guess that's a "thing" now...?) Therefore, I apologize in advance if it seems like I am being boastful in today's post. I say this, because the weather here in Phoenix is at its all-time BEST. This time of year is the period of winter that reminds me why I stick through the 4-5 months of 100+ degree days in the summer. I am currently sitting on the couch with all of our doors and windows open, being encompassed by fresh, crisp, warm air... Ahhh... Oh, wait. Sorry. I am not supposed to be rubbing it in. Forgive me.

Are you stranded inside from the snow? If so, I really am sorry for bragging about our weather right now. (Just remember that you can rightfully rub your perfect 80 degree summers in my sweaty, greasy face come June ;D)
Hello! This time of year really has me itching to plan our next vacation. Matt and I have a goal to travel internationally every even year (AKA this year, 2016) and domestically every odd year (AKA 2015, when we took our road trip). That means this year we are headed back to Europe, and even though we have many months before we even start really planning, I am already getting downright restless! We're leaning towards visiting Spain and France, and I. Just. Can't. Wait. Barcelona, here we come!

Have you been to Spain and/or France? If so, please let me know what your recommendations are -- even though I am obviously way jumping the gun, because we won't even go for at least six more months! I am just so jazzed already!!! (Are people under the age of 70 allowed to say "jazzed?" ... Because I really love it.)
