Staycation... to Phoenix

On a little bit of a whim, my friend and I went to Phoenix for an overnighter, with shopping. We stopped at Ikea, picked up some napkins, pillows, and a solar powered desk/work lamp. The solar battery pops out so you can put it in the sun. I actually have it inside, but in a sunny window, and then it works at night as a reading light. Way cool... We went to Last Chance, the "last chance" for returns and stuff from Nordstrom, got Zoe some cute Uggs. Last Chance is in a basement, with announcents before they open about shoving, taking stuff out of other's carts, etc. But once you buy shoes there, it's hard to buy them anywhere else.

After that, we checked into our hotel, then Mondrian, a boutique hotel in Scottsdale, close to Scottsdale Fashion Square. This hotel was tre chic. Too cool for us, but we liked at least pretending we can hang with the rich and famous. We got a great deal through, so we couldn't pass it up.
