The Weather Is Here...

In the words of one of my favorite Jimmy B songs...The Weather Is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful. Of course, all the words don't apply, but it about a guy who's had enough of NYC and right now that is me!!! These words especially apply:

The weather is here I wish you were beautiful
The skies are too clear life's easy today
The beer is too cold, the daiquiri's too fruitful
There's no place like home when it's this far away

My favorite words right now are "There's no place like home when it's this far away." So true!

This is where I'll be on Friday at 12:30pm (God willing our flights are on time) sipping on a beer, eating oysters and watching my husband catch some fish (if they let him off Wall Street for a few hours--he has a ticket but we STILL don't know if he'll be joining me--I HATE this part of his job!) I'm going to spend Easter with my family at my parent's beach house on the Florida Panhandle and I am in DIRE need of some sunshine. I packed last night and got so excited (and a little nervous) about pulling out my swim suits and shorts.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter filled with lots of blessings! I'm not sure if I told you or not, but I gave up Italian food for lent. In NYC, where I was getting used to all the pizza and Italian spots on every corner, it was really tough. I cheated twice--once for Il Mulino and once when my hubby decided to order pizza for dinner. I think I did pretty well though considering all the temptations I had. I think giving up something for Lent out of remembrance for what God gave up for us is a great way to celebrate the season.

Another not so random thing that happened this week--after Mardis Gras I lost my diamond cross that I got for Christmas. We have TORN up the apt looking for it and it made me sick that I could not find it. I decided to clean out one of my husband's drawers to be nice the other night (after I did a ton of his laundry) and low and behold there it was. It had fallen from the top of our dresser into the bottom of his undershirts! I don't think it was a coincidence that I found it a few days before Easter while I was doing something nice. Maybe sounds silly, but I think God has a good sense of humor. I've also said lots and lots of prayers for my friend "S" and I said an extra one for her last night as she having a tough time...she got a JOB today!! I'm a strong believer of prayer. Congrats "S" I'm so proud of you. Happy Easter friends to you and your families!

Stop by the wharf for a beer if you are in the area! =)

I believe in the power of prayer as well. I have seen prayers answered so many time. I am glad your friend got her job!

OMG, that place looks unbeliveable.

How wonderful that you found your cross. I also think prayer is a powerful thing indeed.

I hope you enjoy EVERY minute of your vacation! After being in Arizona all week, I drove over a bridge today with the sun glistening on the water- it's therapeutic!

The house is insanely beautiful. I loved the post... just bought Jimmy Buffett tickets for his concert in NC this summer. I love his concerts, especially the tailgates... reminds me of football season!!!

I'd drive down there right now to join you at your beach house, which looks amazing. -- love your blog, I recently found it! Happy Easter.

So jealous, looks absolutely beautiful. I gave up chocolate and I can almost taste it. I can't believe I made it this far but my sacrifice pales in comparison. Congrats on finding the cross.
