Pizzeria Limone

This is the best place hands down to eat in Utah!! It's our favorite. They just put a new one by my moms house in Lehi. That's trouble. We went to Family night at Pizzeria Limone for our last night in Utah. We went with the Arhets side of the family and the Correas. They have big long tables enough to fit lots of family. I love it. My favorite pizza to order is the Pera add balsamic glaze and kalamata olives and the Ferrari - that's a secret pizza. It's not on the menu. They are absolutely divine. Everyone in the family loves it, so it's a win!! If you are in Utah you must go. Let me know how you like it and what you get?! Here's the link below to see if you have one close to you!!

Seven Magic Mountains

Today we took a detour on our drive home. I really wanted to take the boys to see some cool rocks. I know it sounds weird, but when you see them. You will understand.
They are an art installation that is in the middle of the desert just past Las Vegas. They are bright and beautiful! I recently saw a picture and loved them. I knew I had to go and I knew my family wild love this little adventure. We found them after a 35 min detour off our original route home. We arrived and got out and explored. 
We loved the colors. The pink rocks were my favorite! The boys loved all the colors, the dirt and just being out in the desert. We took some pictures and walked around the little area. 
It was super hot. So after a good while we were done. The art installation will only be there for 2 years. I figured it would be a once in a lifetime thing we would do. Plus we love fun and adventure. This was right up our alley. 

If you head to the Seven Magic Mountains-- bring a camera and take lots of water! Enjoy. I will post the link below with more info to the art installation.

Girls Overnight

This last weekend Becca and I headed to Scottsdale for some much needed Girl time! It was so amazing. It's so nice that we live so close to a resort town/vacation spot. It feels so far away. But it's so close!  I love having all of the resorts so close. We are super lucky. They are so fun. They always have great pools and summer is the best, because prices are a little cheaper!! 

We left Friday evening and went to Cornish Pasty Co for dinner. It was seriously so amazing. We loved it. Becca is the best foodie friend because she loves all good food just like me!! The Resturant was so cute and had dim lights. Nice and calm and had the biggest, prettiest wood tables. They were my fav. Our food was amazing. Like really. We had The Pilgrim & The Rosemary Chicken. The Pilgram taste just like Thanksgiving all in one bite?!! They were perfect. 
Check out the Resturant here-- they have a few locations around the valley.

Our food-- we shared so we could taste 2 kinds of Pasties! 
Becca & I at dinner. Red & Brown

We stayed at The Hotel Valley Ho! It was so cute and we loved it. We had a beautiful room with great accommodations. We were so excited to each have our own bed and just sprawl out and sleep. We chatted all night, watched girl shows and went to bed. It was so nice and relaxing.
We ordered breakfast in bed and enjoyed that together in the AM. We had yummy food and we loved it. We had the best time relaxing and just hanging out.
Check out the cute hotel if you are looking for somewhere good to stay in Scottsdale !!

On our way home we stopped at the amazing Sprinkles Cupcakes!! Have you ever been?! If not you must go. They are amazing. So many yummy flavors to pick from. We picked up cupcakes for us and of course the fam too. 

It was such a great 24 hour get away. It's always good to take some time for yourself and get away. It helps keep you sane and be a better you!! I am thankful I have a cute bestie to do fun things with!! Remember to have fun, enjoy life and Treat Yo Self every now and then!!
