Our Phoenix Daycation at the Omni Scottsdale Resort Adults-Only Pool

Escape the oppressive, Phoenix desert heat and indulge in a little slice of luxury at this adults-only pool.



As the temperature continues to rise and the heat settles here in the valley, the summer becomes increasingly more unbearable with each day of summer. Don't get me wrong, I like that the city empties out and I do enjoy the heat. But not this much heat and with the humidity factored in.


Monsoon season has come and the triple digits along with the humidity have finally hit Phoenix. This city is quiet because all of the tourists have left, that is for sure, but the weather feels oppressively hot and humid to the point where you don't want to be outside for more than 10 minutes at a time unless the circumstances are right. 

The only time I want to be outside in Phoenix in the summer is when I'm at the pool, and I have somewhere shaded and cool to retreat to that is nearby. Phoenix resorts are so affordable this time of year because of the heat and the lack of tourists, which makes it an ideal time of year to indulge in a luxury staycation and even spring for a poolside cabana (which is exactly what we did when we spent some time this summer at the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia.

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 236


Happy Saturday! 

This weekend, Adam and I are celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary! We won't be able to celebrate on our actual anniversary date, so we are taking some time this weekend to enjoy and spend some time together. 

The Lavender Paradise of the Midwest | Our Visit to Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm

Just a short ferry ride from the top of the thumb in Wisconsin, you can make your way out to Washington Island and discover the beauty that is the lavender paradise of the Midwest: Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm.


Washington Island, approximately a 5 miles ferry ride away from the mainland, houses a number of unique attractions that bring in many visitors from Door County. If there is one specific reason you need to make a trip out to Washington Island this summer it is to visit Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm and Shop.

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 235


Good morning! 

Adam and I are trying to stay cool this weekend as temperatures continue to climb here in the desert. We have a number of projects we need to finish up over the weekend and into the start of next week, so we will be trying to stay busy with work and distract ourselves from the intensity of the heat and humidity this weekend. There will be a few trips to the pool as well, but we're definitely feeling the heat this weekend! Oh, and we're hoping to plan another trip down to Bisbee this summer which is why I am going through all of our Bisbee pictures and swooning over our visit to The Shady Dell. 


Kayaking to the Devil's Bathtub

Make your way out to Door County -- a visit to Cave Point Park is a must for kayakers and cliff jumpers alike!


Are you headed to Door County this summer? We can't get enough of the beauty of the area and all that there is to do and see in and around Sturgeon Bay, which is why I decided I would go on my very first tandem kayaking tour out on Lake Michigan to see the Devil's Bathtub at Cave Point.
