The day started bright and early for us. We ate cereal, cinnamon rolls, and coffee before heading out. We barely hit any traffic, and were out of the city before we knew it.
We saw this amazing bush decorated with Christmas cheer in the middle of nowhere. It was magical.
About two hours later we arrive in the Prescott. We decided to spend the day in the downtown area where they have amazing antique shops, cute coffee houses, and good places to eat. We decided to go to this cute coffee house that we went to on our last trip to Prescott so that we could get an americano to warm us up (it was seriously chilly outside.
An americano and a almond and raspberry vegan torte. MMMM.
After we warmed up a bit we headed out and walked around the downtown area more. We walked by Prescott's "art district," but unfortunately all the galleries were closed, so we just took cute pictures.
A few minutes later we ended up in our first antique store of the day. This one was seriously special and had so many treasures in it.
Vintage Pyrex! Oh my!
Neat old cash register.
I ended up buying my mom a Japanese pixie, or an elf on a shelf as she calls them (pictured). She had one on her tree when she was a little girl, and now this one is currently residing on the top of our tree.
After we made our purchases (Scott bought an awesome antique skeleton key as well) we headed to the center of downtown where their courthouse is so that we could take a few tourist photos.
Then we decided to go on another walk to find Cuppers, a coffee shop that Danielle suggested to me.
Right down the way from Cuppers is a funeral home that Danielle's family owns. I decided that I needed a photo in front of it (might be innapropriate/silly, but oh well!).
Around 11:45 we were very hungry and decided to go to a cute burrito shack called Hugo's (Danielle always talks about this place).
After lunch we drove out of town and found a pile of snow to play in. Even though there wasn't very much, we had a good time!
Next on our list of things to do was go to this one road where they have like six or seven antique stores in a row. Here is what we found while looking around:
Before heading back down to the valley Scott and I grabbed some drinks at Cuppers. Scott got an Alice Palmer (raspberry lyche tea and lemonade), and I got an iced coffee.
On the way home we stopped at Sunset Point because I've never been there before. It was a beautiful view and I'm glad we stopped.
Last minute Scott decided he would really love to have pie in Black Canyon City, which has the best pies in the world. We got a multi-berry, and a chocolate cream. They were DELICIOUS!
Overall it was an amazing trip and I'm so happy we went! I love getting away from the city every one and awhile<3>
WOW that was a big post!
