baby it's cold outside.

I have this philosophy that once the Christmas season has come and gone, Spring should come. I love the cold during the holiday season...bundling up, drinking hot cocoa, dreaming of a White Christmas {dreaming being the key word here}, etc., etc. But now that it is mid-January I say, "Bring on the sunshine and flowers!"

Recently is has been surprisingly cold {tomorrow is supposed to get down to eleven degrees} for my dear Tenn-er-ssee. So cold, in fact, that all of the public schools are being shut down tomorrow! Unbelievable, I say.

Yes, you northerners {my dear friends and family up in Maine} may be thinking "HA, you think it's cold down there? You should feel how cold it is up here!" And, I know I know...I really have no place to talk about the cold in comparison to you guys.

But, at least you have white fluffy snow to go along with your cold {feel free to send some down here, by the way.}

Well, the good thing is...even though it is bitter cold here in the south {this is the south, right? HA! I'll believe it when I see it.} It will make me appreciate my precious warm springtime once it has arrived.

And yes, even though it is c-c-c-cold outside...I sure did order a frozen caramel frappuccino at Starbucks today. The barista exclaimed "Are you crazy?! Do you realize how cold it is outside?!" when he took my order.

Bundle up, my friends.


  1. While reading your post, it did make me laugh to hear that school would be canceled with it being 11 degrees outside. When I woke up this morning it was -30 degrees outside! They would never cancel school for it being 11 degrees out.

    And feel free to take all of the snow you want. I am sick of it. I say bring on the sunshine and flowers too! :)

  2. @Danie: Thank you! :)

    @Courtney: I know...I was watching the news this morning and saw that we have it very easy compared to Maine. We have it easy compared to you all.
