Yes, last night I took one fast ride, two planes, and another car ride to arrive in the home of honorary family members "Em" and "Elle", who my mother is currently staying with. Their home is in the country. A country I some what became familiar with when I lived here in northern Cali. Lets just say I wasn't on a first name basis with this country.
Bloggers, and friends meet Gwen. She is the mamba look alike at Elle's house. I love her! She is so sweet and so soft. Oh Gwennie.. how I wish to snuggle you in this cold cold weather.
Yeah about that. This cold cold weather! I woke up this morning perched on the edge of Elles bed, make up done and still in my pjs watching the famously wonderful gay local weather man. He was looking dashing and in now way had the same facial expression I did when he proudly, and dare I say gleefully announced, "It's 28 out side and there was a frost last night!" Ummm pardon me. My Az ears didn't hear you correctly... 28!
1. I am cheap... nay picky on what I will pay for at the airport. Extra baggage isn't one of them.. nor is a ten dollar slice of pizza (*cough cough* California Pizza Kitchen!)
2. Arizona has been a buzz with the "cold" temps its sporting. We all are guilty of wearing gloves in the chilly morning air, where we "Can see my own breath! Look.. hhhhhhaaaaaaaaa". But as I stepped off the first plane in Salt Lake City to a snow patched bridge I realized.. silly silly Arizona.. we just really don't know do we.
3. I had to fit warm, and therefor bulky clothes into a small carry on along with shoes, gifts, and scarfs. My carry on was bulging peeps, and that's no innuendo.
