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!


If you live in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area, or are headed this way be sure to stop by Sanctuary on Camelback Resort & Spa for your special occasion. We’re hoping to catch one of their Sunday Happy Hours soon!

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.


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.”

Check out the Ace Paint Studio 31 Days of Color at noon EST every day of their 31 Days of Color to uncover new colors, inspiration and expert tips. Be one of the first 1,000 to get a free sample of the color of the day! You can also enter 31 Days of Color Sweepstakes daily for a chance to win a $10,000 paint makeover and daily $50 Ace gift cards. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. #31DaysOfColor
