Back to Reality...

Just got back this afternoon from a nice, long weekend with a couple of friends up in northern Arizona's pine country. My friend, Kim, has a very cute cabin in a town called Overgaard, up past Payson.

Here's Jennifer and me on the front porch right before the ride back this morning.

Here's a couple of shots of where we called home for the past few days. Her cabin is so cute and she has it all decorated in a bear and moose theme.

We got up there on Thursday night and went to a local burger joint called the Red Onion. We knew our diets were blown from that point forward when we started the meal with deep fried zucchini with ranch dressing. Let's just say it went downhill from there! Friday we all got massages at a cute little salon owned by someone we know who now lives up there year-round. Saturday we headed further up north to Showlow and pretty much shopped all day in the cute little shops. Of course, the trip wouldn't be complete without me picking something up for Lauren or the nursery, so I got an adorable bear dressed in a pretty little outfit to go on a shelf in the nursery (I'll post a photo later).

Kim's husband, Johnny, is a Commander at the local Police Department at the City we all work for. I wanted to show you Mr. Police Bear who sits on a shelf near the front door.

We had a great trip, but it's back to reality starting tomorrow morning when my alarm goes off at 5:00 a.m. (can't wait to get back to the office). Can you believe that I had over 450 new messages in my e-mail box just from our January Precious Pandas DTC's a good thing I keep a separate folder for these or else I'd never find my personal e-mail buried in there!
