*~*HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL OF THE DADS OUT THERE! Hope you are all spending time with your family on this special day. The weather is warm in Scottsdale, but sunny so hopefully you are either laying poolside or enjoying some air conditioning in a movie or restaurant.*~*  

"Who are you to judge the life I live?
I know I'm not perfect
-and I don't live to be-
but before you start pointing fingers...
make sure you hands are clean!"

— Bob Marley

*What a great quote and so very true! We live in a life where it seems like everyone is always blaming, talking about, or doing something negative to someone and it seems like everyone is "calling the kettle black." Devoid your life of judgment, live your life for YOU, and give off a positive aura...stop worrying about what others do or have and then everything in life will finally start to fall into place. Just a little wisdom from a non-expert

Coming to the Valley...
  • A brand new water park is coming to the Phoenix area bringing new rides and attractions for all to enjoy. Wet'n'Wild is due to open sometime this month and will remain open until the beginning of November. By a season pass in advance for $64.97 with tax. That is a FANTASTIC deal because daily rates are $34.99 plus tax. Attractions include a wave pool, tornado water slide, desert racers, lazy river, raging river family ride, an area where guests can boogie board against different elements, and a whole lot more from individual cabanas to a children's zone. http://phoenix.mywetnwild.com/
  • The ever so popular retail clothing store H&M is coming to Scottsdale. This will be in the new Scottsdale Quarter across from the Kierland area. This is a high fashion store with low affordable prices. People drive to different states and cities to experience the clothing phenomenon and now from all over the valley. If you have ever visited New York, where H&M is on every corner or the Mall of America then you have shopped at the international retail giant. The store will be here this fall, hopefully just in time for some back to school shopping, but be prepared for the lines!
  • We have a lot of music stars coming to the valley this fall including the Jonas Brother, August 11th and Miley Cyrus September 25th. BOTH are already on sale, so be sure to check out ticketmaster.com before you miss out on these and other popular concerts including Keith Urban and Eric Clapton both here this summer. 
**Keeping all of this in mind be sure to book a room at Hotel Indigo Scottsdale in advance and save BIG, up to 50%. I am talking like $75.00 a night...yes, something crazy like that! Even grab a suite for right around $100! This hotel will put you in the central location of Downtown Scottsdale.** http://www.scottsdalehiphotel.com/reservations.php

Check out some guest commentary below...

"The use of Aveda products was a plus and the bath robe (the most important part) was extremely comfortable."

"The staff pleasant and check-in/check-out was quick and easy. I would definitely stay there again."

"Too bad they don't have many other Hotel Indigos around or they would get more business from me (i.e. my company)."

"While I am in agreement with others regarding the IKEA-esque feel, I thought that this was a great hotel due to pricing and location."
