Brrr - It's Been Chilly in Florida

Hey! I didn't bring a lot of warm clothes and it's been chilly in Florida so far. Actually, today was pretty nice. Not much wind and 65 and sunny. For those of us who live in the arctic (well, Wisconsin, actually) 65 and sunny feels great!

We picked up Mike and Daniel at the airport at about midnight last night. The girls and I decided to kill time at Orlando Premier Outlets. Heh, heh, heh... Kind of dangerous, right? Well, not so much, really. It's an upscale outdoor outlet mall and in Florida you wouldn't think shopping at an outdoor mall would be a problem but we were COLD while we were shopping! We could even see our breath! We hit Starbucks just to have a hot drink to hold to keep our hands warm. It's the first time in history that the girls asked me (more than once) how much longer we HAD to shop. No, really, I'm not kidding, they actually said that.

Okay, now that you've picked yourself up from your faint, I will say that we had been there since 3:30pm and we had to wait for dear husband and son's flight to come in at 11:41pm. It really did end up being a long day.

Anyway, we're all together now and all is well with the world. The pizza is in the oven and so are Emily's homemade chocolate chip cookies. What more could a person ask for? Okay, since you asked, I'd really be happy to get rid of this cold that a certain someone who shall remain nameless managed to contaminate me with. Let's hope I can manage to shake it soon.

Have a great weekend folks!

Bummer weather for you! It's about 45 degrees here today, everyone is walking around in shorts! But I do wish you warmer weather during your stay. Glad your entire family is intact! Hope you feel better soon,

Today is a nasty, foggy gray day here, so Florida weather has to be better than at home. And you get a view of the ocean! But hopefully it has warmed up for you all!

And you might want to tell your girls to stay away from my site for a bit, I seem to have acquired a child pornography follower. I am SO ANNOYED. I can't figure out how to get rid of them, I have asked everyone but no one knows how to lose a follower. I have contacted blogger, but have not yet heard a word from them. So sad that they have to stoop to impose their nasty pictures.

Have a great day, I am hoping there are loads of beautiful birds migrating through there, you just send them my way please!
