I can NEVER live in Iowa!

I have been a bad blogger. So here's a little recap of what has been going on and what will be coming up.

Danny & I took a little roadtrip up to St Augustine. It's about five hours away by car. We left very early in the morning on Tuesday since we wanted to be there in time to watch the inauguration. Temperature was 65 degrees when we left. We had a smooth, uneventful ride up. Except for watching the temperature go down. We arrived in St Augustine at 10:00AM and the temp was 43. We both had to change out of our shorts. I haven't changed in a car since college! We should have taken it as a sign of things to come. Anyhoo, we went straight to the
Plaza de la Constitucion , America's oldest public park, where they were having a public viewing of the inauguration. People were all bundled up in their hats, gloves, coats, scarves etc. Are you sure we're still in Florida?

The days were GORGEOUS but freakin' cold! Nightime lows dipped to about 24. I don't think that I have ever been in temps that low. We were staying at The Saragossa Inn, which by the way, I HIGHLY recommend. The innkeeper is great and he's an excellent chef. Well, they have a bird bath in front of the house. Unless the birds know how to ice skate, they did not get any use out of it! It was frozen solid!! Now, St. Augustine is a walking city. My thin blodded self was miserable most of the time. I thought that my nose was going to fall off! Note to everyone. Do not trust weather.com. It said that it was going to be in the 60's so we packed accordingly. We only accomplished 1/2 the things that we had planned on doing, so I guess we'll have to go back. Fortunately we have been there before, but this ives us another excuse to return.

Danny was being Danny and took a picture of me in my misery. I have TWO jackets on and am still freezing!

The next couple of pictures are from the cafeteria at Flagler College. Students dine surrounded by Tiffany Windows!

Oh, and in case you'd like to visit the Giggling Gator... here's some info for you!

As for what's coming up. Nothing too thrilling. The start of a new diet & my return to the gym. Wish me luck. I really need to lose the weight for health reasons and because I just saw all the cute Spring/Summer clothes at Macy's.

You are so cute all bundle up. Heck, if it was 43 here - we would all be changing INTO our shorts! hehe. It was 1 degree this morning and I didn't even button my jacket or wear gloves to church.

Poor thing - that weather must have really been a shock to your south Floridian system! The pictures look beautiful!

I love St. Augustine! It's great for a weekend. I love most of northeastern Florida for that matter. That is some freaky cold weather!
