Sleeping In Seattle?

Dear Mother Nature,

Hi there, it's me. Just wanted to "drop" you a quick note to chat about the weather.

I know, we've been in a drought the last couple of years, and I TOTALLY understand where you're going with all this, but really, we've had enough rain.

My hair is frizzy, my dog and my son are stir-crazy and I'm just waiting for the mosquitoes to start hatching. Hubs teaches golf for a living, and come on, no one can play golf when the ball disappears in the mud when you hit it.

I'm not complaining, don't get me wrong. I love getting my Dansko's soaked just walking 10 feet into the office and the fact that my son has the ability to find every puddle within 20 feet to jump in. Just asking for a little bit of relief. Looks like we have five more days of rain coming in the forecast and just thought I'd send you a little shout out.

Sometimes I Think I'm Sleeping in Seattle


  1. Ha, this was so cute! It has been yucky in NC too! To go along with the saying, I guess the April showers are coming a little early, so maybe the May flowers will too! I'd be ok with that :) Hope you still have a wonderful weekend despite the rain.

  2. I'm sorry you feel like your are Sleeping in Seattle..since I live about 30 miles from downtown Seattle I can understand. But let it be known we had now rain today..These are the days we mark on the calendar..And yes it is true we don't tan here we rust..but we can be polished up some. LOL :) Hope you rain ends soon...We would just like some warmer temps...

  3. Its been very rainy where I'm at, too. I wish it would just stop already.

  4. I am going to add onto that letter and ask for the moisture to land in colorado...we are so dry out here!! until today anyway, massive snow storm! haha,anyway i just found your blog...super cute!

  5. Mother Nature sure is a pain in the keister isn't she?!

    Hopefully she listens to you, and ya get some sun soon!

  6. Well I just noticed that your weather board was from Raleigh...I'm here too. Neat! I feel you on the I told DH last night, I can take one day of a good down pour-but a week of this drizzle stuff is annoying!

    Have a great weekend...try to stay dry!

  7. This makes me thankful for the sun today before the rain starts tomorrow.

    Hope your skies clear soon!

  8. haha great post--totally agree. the weather in blacksburg, va has been much the same!

  9. Don't get me wrong, Seattle is my favorite place in the US! Wishing I could send the rain to you guys that need it so badly!

  10. Have to love the WRAL....but I think all this nasty weather has the greater RDU area in a funk!

  11. I know the drought was bad and all, but it made it SO easy to predict the weather! You always knew you could do anything outside ANY time, dry and sunny! I second your letter to Ma Nature!!!

  12. i should send you my forecast. in honor of spring, the windy city is bracing for a SNOWSTORM tomorrow! accumulation may reach 8 inches.

  13. this cracked me up, we are so not looking forward to all the rainy days when we move back east either! hope you get some sunny clear blue skies very soon! =)

  14. Come on down to Southern CA. We have not had enough wet weather...for a very long time. Sometimes I get sick of the sun (sshhh...don't tell). My husband is from NC and never lost his southern accent. I love a good southern accent. I'll be back!

  15. hi, i wish you know how is right here, there is too much sun shine, with some coldness wind blowing the dust so they call it sand storm them you fill the worst weather ever. imagine that in which country iam in. seasons are like the worst is almost to come. but i thank you for all you do overthere. i hope God will take care.

  16. well I must let you in on a little secret down here in the Texas Panhandle on Friday we had a Blizzard of all things..12 inches of snow..brr rabbit :)

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
