Goodbye Winter


It is almost time.  I can feel the summer winds start to creep in.  My birthday is in less than a month.  Pretty soon, we will see tulips and green leaves.  The snow is melting quickly and we are about to have our warmest weekend in SEVEN MONTHS.  People are about ready to bust out in song.  So, today I happily say goodbye to Old Man Winter.


This winter was beautiful and not quite as cold as some in the past have been.  I went skiing on a big mountain for my first time and fell in love with Montana.  I searched endlessly for the winter carnival medallion.  I ran a 5k in single digit temps.  I helped teach my nieces how to skate.  I didn't get any cars towed for snow emergencies.  I danced and partied for the Red Bull Crashed Ice event.  I escaped to FL and Disneyworld for a mid winter warm up vacation (which I've never done.)  It was fun and I'm sure I'll be excited for snow again next year, but I'm over it for now.

We are at the end of April and it's finally time for spring to make an appearance.  We've been waiting for you.

I am so excited I can barely contain myself.

Since it's Friday and it's going to be 70 degrees this weekend and I am in a GREAT mood, I will give you a few songs for backthatazzup Friday.  

The first is my farewell song to Old Man Winter:


And my dedications to spring, the sun and warmer weather.  Welcome back into my life.



Now go visit Whitney and jam out on this lovely Friday.



This weekend = brunch + cocktails + farmer's market + patios + awesomeness.  Happy freaking Friday!

  6. There's nothing better than those first few weeks when the sun comes out and the trees and flowers come to life again! We got a little taste of it already down in Texas so welcome to the club!

  7. What?!? It's still snowing some places. That's crazy. And here I am getting mad because it's 40 degrees when it's supposed to be warm. Kudos to you for being able to handle it.

    I love Get Your Shine On! It's such a good song. And of course NSYNC is amazeballs. Still.
