So we went out to Arizona for J's cousin's wedding on Saturday and it was really fun! The flight itself was pretty scary, just because it was so snowy and it took a while for the plan to be ready to take off. Oh, and then the flight was pretty turbulent, like so much so that they didn't serve us drinks haha. 

But, once we got there it was fun! I was able to meet up with my friend, Beverly, who I have been online friends with for probably 10 years! Whenever we are in the same state we try to meet up! This time, we got In N Out, went to Barnes and Nobles and got gelato! It's always so fun to meet up with friends!

Chandler, Arizona: Day 2

I guess this is technically the last post from my time visiting Beverly. I left really early the next day and didn't feel like make that it's own post.

We started the day out a Crepe Bar! It was AMAZING. 

I got a lemon crepe and Bev got one called "first time" lol! 

I went up to the barista to ask for my orange juice that I never got, and the barista said, "This is perfect because I was actually just going to bring you something." He followed me back to our table with this "fermented grape juice". He had apparently been fermenting it for a while and it was like, wine before it's wine? (S.O.S. wine drinkers, help me out here.) Anyway, he said it didn't have any alcohol in it so we tried it and it was so strange tasting! I'm guessing that's what wine tastes like, so I finally know!! To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan.

We made some videos in between lunch and dinner. I'm excited to show you guys! Before dinner we took some pictures at this really pretty garden place. My camera was having trouble focusing so I didn't get as many as I wanted, but we still got some cute pics!

For dinner we went to a place called Uprooted Kitchen. It was for sure the healthiest thing I've ever eaten haha. 

I left really early in the morning the next day. It was such a pretty flight with the sunrise.

And that's it! Yay! I love visiting blog friends so so so much. It's the best! Thanks again, Bev :)

Chandler, Arizona: Day 1

YOU GUYS. My friend Beverly was nice enough to let me come visit her in Arizona earlier this week. I feel like Bev and I go wayyyyyy back. We've been friends pretty much since when I started blogging. We've hung out a time or two when she's been in Utah and it's been great fun. After I discovered Allegiant's super cheap flights when we went to San Francisco to visit Leah, I thought it would be fun to go to Arizona too! I chatted Bev up and BAM. Friends IRL again.

To start the day off, we went for breakfast at Peixoto. It was soooo good. I loved the latte art the most, but my chocolate croissant was a close second. They had this tea called Cascara that I wanted to try but didn't. So, if any of you try it let me know how it tastes! :)

Gwen was such a trooper accompanying us everywhere ha! She is seriously the cutest. I stayed in her room. The first morning I was there she found me in her bed and just stood there staring at me for a good 3 minutes. It was the funniest thing. I think she liked me alright and didn't mind me stealing her room ;)

Guys, I tried on of those wrap around braids. I liked it, except for the fact some guy in a car thought it was a short haircut and that I was a lesbian! Ha! We were walking down the street and this guy leaned out his window and yelled at us, "F****** LESBIANS!!!!" We were so confused for a while, until we decided that my hair probably looked like a really short cut to him. (He was still a jerk though lol.) It was the funniest part of our day for sure. We decided that being mistaken for lesbians means we're at the true height of our friendship :)

Bev took us to Liberty Market for lunch!

Mega lol at the employee I just realized in this picture!!

Isn't it the cutest little street?! 

The caprese salad, grilled cheese sandwich, and caprese pasta salad. I don't know what they do to their mozzarella cheese, but it was hands down the best I've ever had. It's impossible for me to not order caprese salads if they are on the menu ha!

We also tried a kouign-amann for dessert and it was pretty good. I have been wanting to try it ever since reading the one at Les Madeline's in Salt Lake is one of the top ten desserts in Utah. Whoa!

We spent the rest of the night chatting and buying everything pumpkin spice at Target (literally lol). It was SO NICE to be with a friend who understood the picture taking and video making haha. Miss you, Bev! <3
