Once Upon a Sedona [Part One]

Well, hello world! Yes, we know that it's been awhile. Yes, it's been much too long, we agree, but boy, we have been off having some good great amazing adventures in love.

Awhile back, while I was still in that we-just-got-back-from-our-honeymoon bliss, I bought us some great living social deal-i-os, you know, in hopes of continuing this life long honeymoon adventure we're on. The first was to The Wildflower Inn, in Sedona, which is just up the mountain for us Arizonites Arizonians people who live in Arizona. So, alas! Enjoy our adventures! And please, feel free to bask in the glow of our awesome. Or, you can just read on and enjoy, no basking necessary.

So, after a notsobad three hour drive up to the red mountains, we checked into our hotel room, which was advetised as a fancy room with a Jacuzzi! (Alright, I added the word fancy, but it does make it sound so nice, right? right?)

Observe: Hubband testing the bed, "It's definitely comfy enough honey!" Said his face.


See?! Jacuzzi! There are no lies here.
 

Hubband, enjoying the Jacuzzi. Please note, he's wearing jeans. I wouldn't post him really enjoying the Jacuzzi. Come on, our parents are reading this stuff.


 Look! A fancy wood burning oven... that we never used.


And it had a fridge friend!


"IT SWIVELS" Shouted the geek exuberantly.


As his wife jumped on the bed like a ten year old.  A verrrry mature ten year old...


This ended the testing of the room. Check.

Having properly testing the room's amenities, we headed off to the Hideaway Restaurant for some Italian and a great view. Hey, all of that assessing of amenities and protocol and stuff and such made us work up a pretty big appetite.

OH, and we took some pictures of the pretty rocks along the way.




Not the greatest pictures ever, but it's hard to be a photographer and a directioneer and a bowl full of awesome at the same time, 'kay?

<Side Note> As circumstance and divine intervention *ahem Jesus* would have it, hubband's sister and her husband ended up being in Sedona for the exact amount of time that we were there! Whaddya know?! So, we had dinner with them. Or, I should say, we started eating dinner, and they "happened" to show up to our restaurant so we invited them to join us, which we were happy freaking thrilled to do. <End Side Note>

Before they arrived, we ordered some drinks and in addition to chillaxin' had some fun with the camera




 Don't you just want to hang out and have a beer with us now?

Remember how I mentioned that the restaurant had a view? Well, this is the one we got from our table. Gorgeous! 



After some delicious grub, we parted ways with our dinner-mates, and I took hubband to Tlaquepaque, which is a gorgeous little shopping and art area-thing that he'd never enjoyed before. It was late, so everything was closed, but it had just rained, so we enjoyed some amazing weather, and a walk stroll hand-in-hand. OH, and we danced by a fountain to the music pouring out of a closed kitchen. Someone call Disney! But really, it was lovely.

Here's a small glimpse of the lovely



 That's all for now friends, but don't you worry! We have more fun and adventures to share- just you wait! But really, you have to wait. We love you all!
