Easter at The Sanctuary on Camelback Resort & Spa

Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa from Sanctuary on Vimeo.

Now that my taxes are finished, I’m finally catching up with some blogging. I wanted to share some photos of our beautiful Easter Sunday at the stunning Sanctuary on Camelback Resort & Spa.

We all woke up early Easter morning to put on our Sunday best. Harper & Rexy both wore new pieces from the Feather Drum SS ’15 Collection. The Sanctuary is only about 5 minutes from our house so we grabbed the kids’ Easter baskets & headed out for our short ride.

The grounds of the Sanctuary on Camelback Resort are absolutely gorgeous. The resort is built on the side of Camelback Mountain which makes for spectacular views! The Easter Egg hunt began around 9:15 & did not disappoint! There were hundreds of eggs hidden in every nook and cranny you can imagine. All of the children were very friendly. It was so nice to see such kind & well behaved kids. Some of the older children offered eggs to babies & toddlers. It was a great dynamic! There were 6 “golden eggs” hidden that morning. If you found one of them, you “cashed it in” for a large prize. Neither Rex nor Harper found one, but a few of the kids that did find them shared their big prizes. Harper and Rex were ecstatic! They came home with huge chocolate bunnies & egg-laying chicken toys. The funny Easter Bunny was also at the resort all morning to take photos and offer extra treats for the children.

After the hunt was over it was time for Easter Brunch. We had reservations at the award-winning restaurant, Elements…

With its cutting-edge kitchen, this critically acclaimed Scottsdale restaurant offers a diverse menu including vegetarian and gluten-free options…innovations like in-house smoked meats and a raw bar for iced shellfish and sashimi…plus the best local, organic produce, sustainable seafood, and hormone-free meats, making it a favorite restaurant in Scottsdale.

Food Network star, Executive Chef Beau MacMillan creates specialties that live up to the dramatic setting of elements, a top rated Scottsdale restaurant. Watching the colorful sunset on Camelback Mountain while dining at elements is one of the most enjoyable pleasures at Sanctuary. With a menu as inspiring as the stunning location, elements features farm-fresh American cuisine with Asian accents, providing an upscale Scottsdale fine-dining experience.

There was a special Easter Brunch Menu that morning that was just divine. I had the Baked Oysters Dynamite, Lobster Benedict, & Strawberry Shortcake. It was the most delicious brunch I had had in years. Maybe even ever!

Long Days, Short Years

Felixbae_everyday

The days are long but the years are short

I came across that quote the other day and it’s stuck with me since. I feel like it’s resonated with me much more now because I’m a mom. The first four words seem to linger as I think about just how tired I am. All the time. Yet when my son came to lay his little head on my lap, it immediately reminded me of the newborn stage and how he wouldn’t sleep at night unless he rested on either mine or my husband’s chest. And you say to yourself, I can’t believe that was soandso long ago. It always feels like it was just yesterday.

During the first couple of months when your baby only seems to eat and sleep you long for the days when they’re more responsive. But before you know it, you find yourself creating a Pinterest board for first birthday inspiration and you’re overcome with emotion at just how fast it’s gone.

The dichotomy of being exhausted and wanting your baby to take his midday nap so you can get to your endless to-do list, to just wanting time to stop so they stay little forever.

All we can do it try and capture and savor these special moments even when the day seems to drag on.

Happy Wednesday!

31 Days of Color with Ace Hardware

“Ace Hardware has provided free paint samples. I was also compensated for my time and this blog post. All opinions and positions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Ace Hardware.”

For the month of March, I’ve teamed up with Ace Paint Studio at Ace Hardware for their #31DaysofColor campaign. Since I’m not one to shy away from BOLD color, I’ve chosen a color that really pops: Bold and Beautiful from the Clark+Kensington paint collection.

31daysofcolor

So, what could I paint to show off this fun shade? I went over to the thrift store and decided on a collection of wooden & plastic frames. None of them really went together, but a few coats of paint would make for a colorful collection on the wall!

After returning home with my thrifted frames, I set up an area on my patio for painting. The frames were super dirty, so I washed them off with a soft cloth after removing the glass. I cleaned the nooks & crannies with some Q-tips.

I used a small paint brush and applied a few coats of Bold and Beautiful. Since it was nearly 90 degrees out they dried in about 30 minutes!

…and the fun part! Display the frames like you would a cluster of artwork. I decided to stage a little nursery corner with red, black, & white accents.

My experience with Ace Hardware & Clark+Kensington paint was fantastic… & as they say, “Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor.”
