HI! Finally I’m getting to update you guys on a small amount of my life recently. It feels as though we haven’t had a coffee date in foreverrrr. So grab that steaming hot coffee or tea and let’s chat!

In any case HI! How’s your springtime been? The elements in Chicago had been mediocre; it still feels chilly and no one was kidding if they called it the Windy Town. I live pretty near Lake Michigan so the wind effects are easily observed and it feels more chilly than it frequently is. I have to admit that I haven’t been in Chicago very much though. Tony’s back to playing football so I’ve been visiting him frequently in warmer areas… like Arizona!
If you aren’t aware already, Tony takes on professional baseball within the White Sox Organization (minor leagues). Each March he minds to Glendale, Az for Spring Schooling. Lucky for me, I’m able to function from wherever so I travel normally as possible (who wouldn’t?).
This Springtime Training we decided to rent a residence off of AirBnb I heard wonderful reasons for having it and thought a house would be a great opportunity to relax, cook together and feel a bit more comfortable versus within a hotel.
To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised with the house! It was beautifully decorated, impeccably clean and even had a pool. It was also less expensive then residing at a resort so of course we were happy! Honestly, I’d hightly recommend trying out AirBnB on your next holiday; it’s a great way to encounter a new town. If you sign up for AirBnB right here , you’ll receive a $25 credit towards the next stay. Doooo it. (affiliate marketer link!)
Each morning I made myself breakfast at the house since Tony had practice early. I found some organic eggs from the store and also have been obsessed over the delicious orange yolks. I ate them with a small number of granola and almond milk.
Been SO in love with granola especially when it includes pecans and toasted almonds. What’s your preferred kind or even a brand you like?
When in AZ, I actually had lots of time on my hands so I baked a lot of cookies including white chocolate blueberry coconut oatmeal and the classic coconut essential oil oatmeal chocolates chunk (pictured over).
Both are so damn good that I cannot keep them anywhere in the house.
Also if you follow me in social media, you’ll understand that Southwest lost my bags for over a week. LIKE WTF.
I spent a majority of my amount of time in the workout clothing I picked up from Target. I’m just happy I wasn’t on the beach vacation or even a cruise! Can you imagine wearing cruise clothing for a week. Hawaiian shirt Problem.
I’m basically obsessed with staying active once i travel because I love to eat, eat, eat! This past year Tony and I climbed Camelback mountain and made a decision to do it again.
I would absolutely do it again within a heartbeat if you ever find yourself in AZ and like exploring, definitely take a look.
Here’s a look at from the top. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
Incidentally, have you tried this passionfruit LaCroix water? I’m OBSESSED and couldn’t stop drinking them all of those other day.
After our hike, we were in need of some GOOD food so we headed to a restaurant in downtown Glendale called Cuff The food was refreshing and both of us really enjoyed the small atmosphere.
I ordered the the Poultry Tortilla Salad and Tony ordered the Shrimp Po’Boy Sandwich. Both of us saved a little area for coconut cream pie, which wasn’t that spectacular but I also kind of consider myself to be always a pie snob usually are not knows.
The next day we went to the Wildlife Zoo Tony took me here on our first date 2 yrs ago and I desperately wished to return.
This time I was able to feed giraffes, goats and llamas. Dreams perform come true.
Especially when you can enjoy a little frozen yogurt after!
Another great meal we’d was at Yardhouse located at Westgate City Center where there are a million things to do. Tony claims he doesn’t like Yardhouse but that’s most likely because he usually orders burgers almost everywhere we go.
I decided to get the kale and brussels sprouts salad with chicken. You guys, truthfully it was one of the better salads I’ve ever had. All of those other trip I held hinting at Tony that I needed to return ASAP because that salad. YUM.
Last but not least was a restaurant off the beaten route. We love finding new places to check out, especially little holes in the wall with incredible, authentic food! This evening we had a serious mexican food craving and Arizona has a lot of great spots to check out so I researched the internets for some recommendations.
We finally arrived at one I actually have been dying to try, but unfortunately there was an hour wait around and it was one of those times where you just can’t bear to not eat right at that moment. Soon after Yelp led us to Anaya’s Mexican cafe and again, it was SO GOOD. Simply take a look at Tony’s plate of food. I wish I would have taken an image of the aftermath because he demolished the entire plate of food. Yep, literally ATE EVERYTHING. I don’t know how he would it.
I did what I really do best. Skinny margaritas + potato chips + salsa. Some individuals don’t know how to make a thin margarita, but this place do and I was oh therefore happy.
We honestly had the optimum time eating and enjoying the elements while in AZ. It’s actually such a great place to visit, even if it’s just for a few days.
Other things I’m loving earlier this month:
-We watched Insurgent and Whiplash and adored them both. On Netflix I just finished watching Period 2 of Bates Motel. Tony and I bought Season 1 of The Us citizens and so are in love… After all Keri Russel is within it so there you proceed.
-Exercise wise, I am running a many more. For me, running is very on / off in my lifestyle because sometimes I really dislike it. The majority of you know that usually I do yoga exercise and interval training. Presently I am experiencing some mysterious neck of the guitar and back discomfort that seems to get worse when i do yoga exercise so I’ve really am seeking to become kind to my own body. It’s been difficult for me to step away from yoga exercise but too unpleasant to keep it. I am seeing a chiropractor for a few months and since things appear to be obtaining worse, I’m going to be seeing a fresh doctor shortly and desire to get some more answers. Not having the ability to become physically active just as much as Let me become isn’t a great feeling and not getting answers is a whole lot worse.
