Last week I boarded a plane to go to Arizona to spend time with my mom, brother and grandfather. I love going back to spend time with them, friends and eat all the foods I can't get in Austin, but I don't love the weather. The average high while I was there was around 104 degrees. Normally I don't think I would have cared that much but I was just leaving Austin as they were going in to a cold front, where the high was right around 80 degrees. Aside from the weather, I had a fantastic time.
Lee picked me up at the airport, and we headed to a sports bar in Tempe. Sunday football starts at 10am in Phx, due to the time change. It was a little weird eating breakfast while watching football, but we had a really good time!!

Sunday night I met up with my girls, Angie and Angela! We ate at a restaurant that had just so so food, but the food didn't really matter, what mattered was spending time with friends!!! We spent about 2.5 hrs there talking and catching up, and the time flew by. I miss these girls a ton and I love how we can pick up where we left off, even it it has been 6 months since we have talked. They are truly good friends that I know I can count on, and that they know they can count on me!!
Another highlight of my trip is going to Some Burros! This is not fine dining, this is not where you take a foodie to impress them with unique combination of flavors, but this IS where you get a DAMN DELICIOUS shredded beef chimi. I will tell you now, you will not find this in Austin. Austin likes to use ground beef or chicken in their chimis. Shredded beef is key, and so is their sauce. Oh Some Burros Chimi... how I love thee!! :)
Hmmmm... this is a little scary. Mom with a big knife
