I took Ryan to Sedona for his birthday! It was a much needed getaway (:
Jump back to Ryan's birthday evening:
We headed to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner - Ryan loves his boneless wings. And to top it off, the Giants were playing (hence our attire).
We got this great fire pit table out on the patio and a ton of people from Ryan's class showed up.
The Giants KILLED the Panthers. And Ryan's friends killed him with an insane amount of beers and shots.
This is Ryan's face after being sent a 'muff diver'...I think it was kahlua and whip cream...not very manly....
The next day we drove to Phoenix for the night, to break up the trip.
I found this great bar called Old Town Whiskey. They have hundreds of whiskeys and delicious food. It's decorated so adorably as well.
Then we headed to El Hefe, a favorite of ours in Phoenix.
They have booths that have your own taps! You just tell them what beers you want and they hook them up. How convenient.
The next day we headed north and arrived in Sedona! Here are some pictures driving into town:
We arrived at our hotel (Matterhorn Inn). We had an awesome view from our bed:
After settling in we took a drive around and I got some more beautiful pictures. Then we walked around town, did some wine tasting and picked up some delicious bbq so we could watch the FSU vs. Clemson game....And FSU won!!! They are looking pretty amazing this year (:
The morning we left I had found a NJ Bagel shop...and they had PORK ROLL!!!! If you aren't from NY/NJ you can't appreciate this, but Ryan hadn't had pork roll since we were in NJ in May. He was so excited and it was delicious.
Lastly, we arrived home to something sad. My poor little fish Darla had finally died. I have had her for 4 years and she has moved with me 4 times. She's been acting weird lately, so I knew this might be coming. But it doesn't make it any less sad ):
rip darla, you were the bestest fishy
Pictures to leave you with!!!
