Challenge #7 What is your favorite season?

What is your favorite season?
Honestly, in Arizona we have basically two seasons, summer and winter.

We don't get to see the leaves change colors or have the beautiful reds, 0ranges and yellows of fall and when we get spring it is usually a warning of the heat to come in the summer. I am not complaining. I will deal with the 100+ weather any day over snow, wind, ice and freezing temperatures.. I just tend to appreciate all the seasons.

Plus when I saw what our next challenge was going to be, all I could think of was the song from Grease 2- "Four Seasons"

I'll be yours in the spring time when the flowers are in bloom..
I'll be yours in the summer, when were playin in the sand...
If you fall in the fall, you'll see, September can be heavenly...
I'll be yours in the winter when the snow in on the ground..
Ahhh Ahh Ahh
I'll be your girl for all seasons, all the year through..

So thank you TAAFOMFT, I have officially driven my husband nuts with singing and humming the song "Four Seasons"..
Mission accomplished! ha!

There is nothing like coming home...

(This is a picture from the plane as we were entering Arizona)

I just got back from the frozen tundra, a.k.a. Illinois! brrrrrrrrrrr!!! (Is all I can say.)
And it seems that living in Arizona has thinned my blood nicely.
I was told (several times) that Illinois is having seasonally cold weather for them? Ha! Funny! Those Illinoisan crack me up.. Comedians I tell ya! Every single one of ya!
All I have to say to that is, I have been going back and forth between Arizona and Illinois for about 10 years +/- and every time I go (and I admit it is usually the winter months we go) it is always FREEZING cold to me...And this time was no exception to the rules..

It was windy, cloudy and raining... and I believe the highest it got was 59 degrees? But on the morning we headed out, the sun decided to peek out from behind the clouds.. (Real nice!) I hope it reaches 60 degrees?

Dear Friends and Family of Illinois,
I hope you are enjoying your 59 +/- degree weather, ohhh and just to let you Illinoisan know, today our high is 102!
Hugs and kisses,

Challenge #6: What is your favorite time of the day?

Come morning, noon or night my favorite time of the day is when I get to come home to you guys!
This challenge was a bit difficult at first. I had no idea what time of the day was my favorite time. And then after I thought about it, it became very clear. Any time spent with these guys is my favorite.
On another note, I want to wish my husband a very Happy Happy 39th Birthday! And Happy 7th Anniversary! And to many more! I look forward to growing old with you! Love you!
And I also want to wish Crystal a Happy Birthday! (Welcome to the thirty something club! It only gets better from here! ha! At least that's what I keep telling myself!)
