The Post About South by Southwest Part I

I plotted and planned a trip to the Southwest.

And I let my parents pay for it.


We flew from Birmingham to Phoenix.

On the plane, my mother talked through her fear of flying and my dad looked out the window.


They maintained those positions for almost 4 hours.


Phoenix = best meal of the trip. Dining bloggetizer coming soon...


Let's take a moment to talk about Arizona.


Hot. Period.


And all of those folks mumbling something to themselves about "dry" versus "humid" can KISS IT.


105 degrees is toasty. Whitney lip or no Whitney lip.


There are cacti and bushes and piles of rocks. Most of which are pretty snazzy to stare at.

His humble abode is next to this one. I hope they tithe.


Sedona is a must-stop for anyone in the neighborhood - the drive alone is worth it.


But it's just a sugar free mint to the filet mignon that was coming...
