Santa Fe was awesome

I haven't posted in a while cause I've been out of town since Wednesday. Had a great time down in Santa Fe, NM! Weather was in the 70's. I've never been to NM but been to Arizona quite a bit. It seems similar in landscape to Phoenix and Tucson area but a lot higher elevation. We did a lot of looking around the plaza and looking at all the shops. Got quite a bit of silver and turquoise jewelry, went a little crazy w/ getting the earrings, cool bracelet, ring, necklace but it was really good prices. The local indians sell a lot of the jewelry for really great prices and we'll see if it tarnished or if it's real silver! There are lot of great art galleries and they have this one street called Canyon that has an art walk and it goes on forever. I do like some art and I loved the old stucco type houses and great gardens and the architecture. Another day we did a private yoga class and a great massage! My first massage and I don't know why I've waited so many years to try it, it was awesome! And then we went to the Taos Indian Pueblo's and learned a little bit of the Indian history and went to Chimayo. Chimayo is a little church where thousands of people have visited near and far and some (they say) have been cured of their illnesses. Here's a link if your interested in it http://chimayo.org/history.html. Anyway, the trip was good, and we did walk a lot but sadly ate too much mexican/southern food cause couldn't resist the local cuisine. So back to the ww wagon tomorrow and looking like a maintain if not a gain. It's so much easier to be on program at home and I will do better this week. I just didn't want to count points when I was on vacation and feeling ok with that decision cause I know I can do this! Hope everyone is having a good week.
