    Last night I went to my friend's brothers house for a "Spring Fling Bash" party. You had to dress in something spring or summer-like. I didn't go for long but for the time that I did it was very entertaining. Two of my friends went out and bought self tanner and put it on their faces and even had a "sunglass tan"...that was pretty creative. There were hamburgers,hotdogs, potato salad, chips and salsa and even a pinata! It definitely put me in the mood for warm weather!

    Not just you! Usually I enjoy winter but this year it just seemed like a nuisance. I'm sure having to commute through a snowstorm practically every day didn't do anything to improve my attitude. And here it is snowing again. Ah, but each day I see the sun coming up a bit earlier and lasting a bit longer, and the sun is peeking through more often, and there is a different quality to the light. Its coming...its coming...just have to hold up a little bit longer.

    Bought some spring clothes last weekend. I'm really longing to get out and clean my porch and grill ribs and make potato salad. Yes it has been the longest winter I can ever remember in the midwest. Hubby says it's supposed to be 50 degrees on Friday. I say - Bring It On!
