Photo Friday – Recap of NY

I’m finally back home to the sunny skies and warm weather of Arizona!

My New York trip/mini vacation was fun and adventurous. My younger sisters enjoyed themselves, but they were definitely worn out by day 2 of walking around NYC haha. Since it was my second time around, I knew what to expect and I wasn’t  suffering as much as they were. Poor things. But, they survived and in the end were glad they got to see and experience “The Big Apple.”

I won’t flood you with the hundreds of photos I took while we went from Albany, to New Jersey, to NYC. Instead, I’ll leave you with a few of my favorites. These were all taken with my Samsung Galaxy S5, because I forgot the battery charger to my Nikon šŸ˜¦

Anyway, hope you enjoy and have a lovely weekend!

New York City – Photo Friday

I’m in NYC!

I’m spending the weekend here in the city with my Mr. & two of my sisters. It’s their first time ever visiting and experiencing the city, so they’re super excited and I’m stoked to be back! I know it may sound a little crazy leaving the warm sunny weather of AZ to come to the cold and possibly rainy weather here in NY, but it’s all worth it to spend QT with my Mr. and celebrate my youngest sister’s 24th birthday here.

So, while I’m being a complete tourist and trying to snap away- here’s the 1st photo of our visit for Photo Friday. I’m totally bummed out that I forgot my camera charger at home, which means the only photos I’ll be taking this weekend will be on my Samsung Galaxy S5. I hope they turn out okay *fingers crossed*

Have a lovely weekend!

Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona

What a fun-filled weekend for the state of Arizona, but most of all for the city of Phoenix!Ā  We were lucky enough to host the Championship of America’s favorite game for the second time since the opening of our gorgeous stadium {Go Cards!}Ā  The entire “valley of the sun” was the place to be this weekend, and I was able to experience just a small taste of it.

I went late Saturday night with two of my sisters & our cousin to explore how they transformed the city of downtown Phoenix into the Super Bowl mecca.Ā  Congratulations to the New England Patriots on taking home the Vince Lombardi Trophy yet again! I don’t want to even get started on the AMAZING half-time show that Katy Perry put on or we’d be here all night haha!Ā  She ROCKED and so did Lenny Kravitz & Missy Elliot (I’ve been a huge fan of her ever since she came out).Ā  Anyway, enjoy a few of my pics from downtown Phoenix taken with my Samsung Galaxy S5.
