We rarely travel up north to Scottsdale. However, when we do, we have a blast. I had a gift card that was expiring so we decided to make a day of it. Our local television station had featured this incredible gingerbread house built my their pastry chefs at the Arizona Biltmore, as well as several others that competed in their gingerbread house contest. We had so much fun examining all of them. We have created a few in the past ourselves and hope to attempt one next year.
Our next stop was the relatively new Scottsdale Waterfront where Urban Outfitters is located. I love their displays.

This jaw dropping palatial mirror was in the window a few doors down from Urban Outfitters. How would you like to attach those crystals?
We traveled across the street to Fashion Square to my favorite shops, Anthropologie, Crate and Barrel and a few more for eye candy purposes including Juicy and Tiffany. Their Santa photo area was stunning.
What's this? A Betsey Johnson store? I had no idea this was here.
One of my dreams is to visit New York at Christmas to see their windows. I don't know if I could stand the cold! Nordstroms did a nice job with their outside window. I remember my parents taking us to downtown Omaha at Christmas to see their department store windows.

It goes without saying that we experienced the "JOY" of Sprinkles.

It was dark by the time we finished shopping. We topped off the night by driving along Biltmore Estates Drive to see all of the incredible lights and Christmas decor. Years ago, I worked for a woman who lived there. She used to point out Jacquelyn Smith's house and Paul Harvey's house. Next time you're in Phoenix, be sure to take this beautiful drive. It's exceptional at Christmas.

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am

still tempted to say: really good!
