Arizona visit

So, for my mom's birthday she flew me to Arizona and it was the first time I had been back in 8 months.
The first thing we did when I got off the plane was go shopping(my nephews were in school until after lunch)! I am not one that can shop for clothes online unless I try them on first, and I have had a hard time shopping in Michigan. The malls and department stores are smaller and the selection is different here. So, I got shoes, pants and a couple purses on my first day back.
Then I ran to see my nephews and family, something that I had been looking forward to for 8 months (since I left). I miss them terribly, and my nephews are growing so fast, its been really difficult for me to be away from them.
And of course friends and food!!! It felt so good to be around my friends, we caught up like I had only been on a short vacation. It's almost like we barely missed a beat.
I realized how much I have missed the restaurants that we frequented while living in Arizona. Its not surprising that MI does not have good sushi, but it is surprising that AZ does, and boy was it good.
On Saturday Teresa Robinette of TuttiBella Designs hosted our annual trunk show at her place, and all our friends came by to visit and see our new designs. I feel so lucky to have such amazing friends!

More dear friends: Carol, Anita and Gail. Some of the best bead friends one could ask for. This was taken after a fantastic night of awesome food, drinks and conversation.
