New Wheels

It is rather chilly in Texas today.  Of course it is nothing like some of you are experiencing, but to a wimp like me, the 40's and 50's are a little on the cool side.  For a few days now I have had summer on the brain...I have always loved the beach, and this year I am more excited than usual.  When I was little, my family would always go to Galveston since it was so close but as I got older, the destination switched to Florida which I love!  

Florida reminds me of white sand...

beautiful sunsets...

and HOT, HOT sun!

So, as the title suggests, I got some new wheels.  Nope, the Mustang is still wonderful...these wheels are...rollerblades.  If this doesn't solidify my nerdiness, nothing will!  Before you judge my sanity and before you make the decision to never read this blog again...hear me out.  Rollerblades are radical, bottom line.  They remind me of being a kid when my best friend Stacy and I would take off on our skates and be gone for hours.  We were cool.  They also are a really good workout for your legs and of course, your butt.  Sweet DP is kind enough to go with me (he must really love me).  OK, OK -  they might not be as radical as I thought but I am not ashamed to admit that I am a rollerblader.  I just get SO SICK of treadmills and ellipticals and I want to do something outside so this is my solution.  Now that I have exposed yet another strange thing about myself, I should probably end this post before I think of something else that is ridiculous.  

Two requests:

Pray for this family - Kelly's Korner

AND, check out this blog - Hall Family 
She is a good friend of mine that just got back into blogging!

Summer is just right around the corner! I just keep telling myself that.

OH man do I wish it was summer here. Still in the 30's-40's. Yuck!

Oooh, I love rollerblading :) Our house was 50 degrees this morning, because our heat is broken, lol, I wish it was 50 degrees OUTSIDE instead of in! Lucky girl!

I'm making my first ever trip to Texas this spring to visit my sister in law in Dallas! I'm excited! :) Have a great weekend!

I stumbled upon your blog via someone else's. And just as your first picture opened, I thought you had submerged your feet in white snow (it's snowing here in MI,which is all I could think of).

Great pictures!Thank you for sharing.

Oh, rollerblades don't make you nerdy! It's still in...isn't it?
