Old Scottsdale and Wickenberg

This past weekend I headed South to Phoenix with my mom and my sister for a girl's getaway.

As usual, we did SOME shopping, but we also decided to try to see some things that we hadn't yet seen.

In old Scottsdale, we walked around and visited the little quaint shops. There was a lot of cowboy stuff! And every shop seemed to carry the same items. We also took the trolley around, which was good, because it poured rain!

My lovely sister...

We ended by eating in The Mission restaurant. One of the best meals I have ever had! And the restaurant was so charming. Very dark and rustic, but with beautiful chandeliers hanging everywhere.

The next day we headed out to Wickenberg. We had heard it was a charming little town, and it was. LITTLE and CHARMING.

Our purpose in going was to shop at the Pottery Warehouse. We wanted some authentic Arizona ceramic pottery for our house and yard.

For lunch we found an amazing little cafe called Nana's. She made the best coconut cream pie!

The Jail Tree was the town jail in the late 1800's. They just shackled the prisoners to the tree!

Now I am home in the -25 C weather... longing for Spring!

Your pictures are beautiful, Paige. Sounds like the perfect relaxing girls weekend.

I too am longing for Spring, I'm so over snowsuits, snowboots, mittens, etc! We've been teased twice already this year with above zero temperatures, but it definitely isn't sticking around.
