Second trip to Phoenix in a matter of weeks. I had to fly back for a meeting or two with a VP who was coming in from NYC for the day. I'm happy that American started flying the LAX - PHX route so I can enjoy my elite status perks, even if the planes are so small that there's no upgrade option. The only downside - taking the little bus to the satellite terminal. It's like these planes are last place out of all the planes in the world. I should be used to it though; DFW -FSM is my little plane route back home to Okiehoma.
I was super glad to be on the ground. Megs picked me up and we went straight to LGO with Chantal. Corn, basil, goat cheese pizza is soooo good. And of course I got half-Gladiator, too.
Dessert from the grocery.
I spent the rest of the night eating cake and working late in preparation for meetings all the next day. There were some nice clouds and mountains along the drive into the office. I kinda miss that little commute. It's much harder to catch up on podcasts when you don't have a daily drive.
Tuck Shop, which is fairly new in Phoenix, set in a delightful little neighborhood at a lovely traffic circle intersection. If I ever have to live in Phoenix again, I want to live there.
Things quickly turned into a girls night. See what we picked up at Target? I'm excited about that new lipstick.
On Friday I went into the office for a few hours, but my trusty sidekick, Robert, once again came through with corporate tent tickets to the Phoenix Open. Four years running, we had to go again. I skipped out for the rest of the afternoon to see some golf. This really is one of the best sporting events ever. Beautiful day, free food, great people watching, and some golf claps thrown in.
