Friends in Phoenix

The first week in December we made a weekend jaunt out to Phoenix to visit friends and watch a Suns game.  It was a short-but-sweet getaway, much-needed and much-appreciated.

MLB were wonderful hosts, as always.  Their guest bedroom is as nice as a hotel (L has impeccable taste and mad decor skillz), which made sleeping in hard to resist.  Homemade blueberry muffins and pancakes and eggs finally roused us from the room, though.  And in addition to that, fun eats in Phoenix.  We lunched at The Parlor (lovely mushroom pizza and salad!) and went to Alice Cooperstown before the game.

We even had a little time on Sunday morning for a visit to the Phoenix Zoo.  The desert is a natural habitat for lots of creatures, like giraffes, elephants, and these guys:

It was nice to head out to warmth, even though I'd been enjoying the unseasonable chill in So Cal.  Thanks, MLB, for a great time!
