Land of sun, fruit, and fun.
I had a great time in Phoenix and would go back in a heartbeat. I got to visit the Mesa Temple, do some serious shopping (including my first trip to Nordstroms, and DownEast Basics), and run outside without 10 layers of clothes on. Had some serious one on one with my husband Jesse. But as always pictures are better.
It is so hard to understand the beauty of this temple.
Just looking at this picture makes me feel cold.
Orange trees growing on the Temple Lawn.
No, I am not trying to be Eve, I asked a lady and she said we could take as many as we wanted. These are Grapefruit. First time I remember seeing either a grapefruit tree or an orange tree.
Spiky palm tree thing attacking me. The leaves aren't soft they are stiff. Just so you know for next time.
Yup you guess it first Catus.
The grounds around the Temple are so beautiful and well kept. It made me want to cry flowers in February just growing like it was no big deal. Well to a Canadian girl that is a very big deal.
My trusty Kaylynn came with me we had so much fun!
Temple and Hard Rock Cafe all in one day NICE!
Enjoying the Phoenix night life or in other words being outside after dark in capris and a jacket!
Proof that Jesse was there we didn't get a picture together, I know "Brilliant."
Ok I really can't explain how great that week was I have never done anything remotely like that in over 12 years. Which would put it pre kid. Unfortunately as great as it was, coming home felt like entering into a black hole, where I would be swallowed up forever, never to breath again without someone needing something. Good news is I have started P90X , and no I will not be sharing those photos for quite some time if ever. So I have been doing that since Monday and still leading some Kettlebell classes. Click on the word Kettlebell to go to our website about Kettlebells. Jesse is going the end of this month to become a certified instructor. The extra endorphins have helped keep me going and given me some fire. So hopeful I will see results on Monday at weigh in. At Group this week I found a great Quote by Brenee Brown, I highly suggest listening to her Ted Talks.
"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do."
I could talk forever about this quote but as you may notice by the time of this post it is rather late so instead I would love to hear your comments about this quote. Kenpo workout in only 7 hours must get sleep.
