Blogtrotting to Arizona

I want to say a BIG hello to all my Blogtrotting friends who are visiting us from all over the place! My husband and I are our adorable baby girl live in sunny and beautiful Glendale, Arizona. I lived up in Northern Arizona for a while but we've been living here in the Valley together for a year now. Living in Arizona is like waking up on vacation every single day, in my humble opinion. 

Sunny almost every single day of the year, with an option of should I or shouldn't I go to the pool today? I can drive North a couple hours and be in the mountains and snow and drive right back into the sun and warm temperatures! That's my kind of living! 

Glendale is home to some pretty amazing sights, sports teams, shopping and resorts in the greater Phoenix area. Today we're going to take a little tour of some of our favorite things to see and do in the Glendale area. 

Keep reading, let's take a tour! 
One of our all time fave & free things to do here is head out to West Gate City center, walk around, shop and eat at one of the local restaurants. There's shopping, tons of places to eat, a really fun fountain for the kids, and home to Jobing.com arena and the University of Phoenix Stadium where the Arizona Cardinals play. There's endless possibilities there for entertainment and fun! We like to grab a coffee or smoothing from Tully's, share it and walk around. It's pretty relax, and it's fun for our little family. 
On the 3rd Saturday of the month I like to head out bright and early to Momma's Organic Market and pick up some fresh and local produce from local farmers. This amazing farmer's market is located at Park West Shopping center in the parking lot. They have tons of local vendors, great produce, a petting zoo for the kids, face painting and more! I love going there and getting out for the morning and seeing what everyone has to offer. It's a great way to spend a Saturday! 

Also throughout the year the city of Glendale is home to some of the most amazing events like Glendale Glitters their annual Holiday celebration downtown, in the Spring the Glendale Chocolate Affair is home to lots and lots of yummy treats think the fair but everything involves chocolate! Check here for all the amazing events Glendale has going on this Fall. 

You can also take a stroll down historic downtown Glendale and eat at one of the local burger joints and do some antique shopping while you're at it. 

I hope you all have a chance to come visit us here in Glendale soon, happy blogtrotting everyone!
