Carmel's On Camelback

This morning I got up bright and early so I could have breakfast with a few sweet girlfriends at a new-to-us coffee shop in Phoenix (located in the Arcadia area). Carmel's is one of those shops that I have driven by hundreds of times, always noticing the cute plaza and the restaurant in it called Havana Cafe as I whizzed by, but I've never taken the time to pull in and explore the plaza at all. So I was excited when Courtney invited me to early breakfast with herself, Kara, Katherine, and her sweet twin sisters Alex and Sam.

Their muffins and scones looked amazing!

I got a Car-Muffin sandwich (an english muffin with eggs, goat cheese, and bacon), and also an iced toddy (both of which were oh so good!).

It was SO great to be reunited with these ladies who I missed so, so much while I was away this summer. It was wonderful to catch up on life, and talk all of the exciting things happening in everyone's lives right now. I truly feel so blessed to have such sweet friends!

What are you up to on this beautiful Sunday?

  2. Aw, such a cute photo of you & the ladies, what a fun day... love your lace mint number too, so pretty!! And thank you so much for all of your health well wishes Chelsea, you're seriously such a sweetheart!! xo

  3. I love this post. I use to live that direction when I first moved to AZ but sadly I only visited Carmel's once. I had a great experience there and the people who work there rule. I won't lie, I'm envious (in a good way) of this girly reunion. I miss all my girlfriends back home so much. Glad you got to catch up with good friends!

  4. Oh how I wish that would drive by my house during nap times! HA! I've just found your blog. Love this cute post and off to read more.
