Day Two: Old Town, Massages, & Shopping!

Wednesday morning we got up and decided we wanted to go check out "Old Town."  We had a few hours to kill before our 2 pm massages, so we wanted to take a little adventure.  This was our "vacation day" for sure, and we lived it up!

I layered with a kimono, black tee, & skinnies.

I couldn't get enough of that Arizona sunshine!

Or the palm trees.

We stopped at the resort's coffee shop and were on our way!  I had the barista make me her favorite drink--for the life of me, I can't remember anything other than an "Americana" and something about white chocolate? Super yummy!

When we got to Old Town, there was a little camera crew following two hip mamas and their babes in strollers.  No clue what they were talking about, but it was kinda cool to see!

Just one of the fun shops down there.

We kept trying to imagine what life was like back in the old days--a saloon and meeting up at high noon!

My friend.

The cactus were so cool and apparently really old. I had no idea how long it took to grow one and I guess it's illegal to mess with one!

We ate lunch at Mission--a really good Mexican restaurant!  Table side guacamole, yes please! I was dutifully studying the menu and wanted to order everything, basically.

Seriously, look at that guac!  I'm still drooling over it.

I decided on the Cubana--big as my head!! With an egg on it, duh.  I could barely eat half.

Joe went with the pork tacos. Yum!

We had a few moments to relax in the sun before our couples massage.

I did make one purchase [yes, No Spend November was not strictly enforced, le sigh, but…] the gift shop was full of Lilly Pullitzer, Tory Burch, Kate Spade & Kendra Scott.  None of which I own! So hubby says to me I can buy the Tory sunglasses, but I couldn't justify $165 on something the kids will probably steal and break.  So I opted for the $20 fakes, since we totally forgot our sunnies at home, and decided on this cute pair to come home with me.

I know they're a bit summery, but they're light and SO pretty! I love pink and it makes me so happy, so I figured these would go with a ton of my outfits.

I was imitating the statue ahead.  Hubby caught it on camera.

We had so much fun, just us two!

Spa time!! I cannot explain how amazing the spa was.  It smelled heavenly, they had rituals and everything!  There was a gigantic 50 pound crystal you put your hands on and inhaled/exhaled toxic & negative energy.  You then grab a stone (or rather, it picks you) and you set it down with an intention.

Rhodonite was mine.  Tiger Eye was Joe's.

After our aromatherapy massages, we sat by the pool and sipped a little something.

After that we headed back to our room, showered, changed, and were ready to meet everyone at the cocktail welcoming reception!  

I went with a simple attire, but was hoping to stay warm since it was outside!

Black Swing Dress- Old Navy
Vest- Arden B [similar]
Boots- Aldo {similar}
Necklace & earrings - Stella & Dot

Not gonna lie, I was super excited for this little swanky event!  Little did I know the amazing people we would meet and what a great time we would have!

Tomorrow's post will be about the conference and my *proud wifey moment!!
