It's a Fabulous Friday

The thing that I am going to miss the most about Arizona is always, always waking up to the sun shining through the curtains. :)  I can count on one hand how many times I have woke up to rain/snow in the past three years.  It just doesn't happen in the morning.  Now I'm not saying it doesn't rain here because around the end of June we do have a monsoon season. That rain seems to come pretty regularly in the afternoons, never in the morning.  I will not even talk about snow in our part of Arizona because it might happen one night out of the year.  I love waking up in Arizona!

I have a few more pictures to share from our little spring break trip.  The first is me and two of my men standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona.  You know the lyrics from the Eagles song Take It Easy..."standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see, it's a girl my Lord in a flatbed Ford slowing down to take a look at me"  Well, the corner street was actually under construction so my husband cropped out all of the construction to the left of us(if you are looking at the picture).  But the mural on the building on the corner is really cool.  Of course, you will have to click on picture to enlarge.  You can see the girl in the flatbed Ford's reflection in the glass of the building.  I'm glad we stopped.  It's a part of Americana along Route 66.
 The snow shot was taken near Payson in Northern Arizona. Lovely little town, by the way.  Both  men were yelling "snow, snow, snow!"  So hubby graciously pulled over so they could play in it for a few minutes.  How quickly they forget all the snow we lived with in Korea, Virginia, Kansas and Germany.  I'll just tell ya'll I didn't bother to get out of the truck.  I remember all the snow!  :)
Lastly, when we stopped at Montezuma's Castle, just north of Phoenix, I was amazed to see such a beautiful river setting in the valley but with cacti growing along side of it.  In my mind, water and cacti just do not go together!

Well, I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a relaxing weekend.  If you are interested in a great give-away please check out Traci's blog at Beneath My Heart. Take the time to look at Traci's past posts,too.  She really has an eye for decorating and doing it on a budget.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to my sweet momma and to our dear friend Warren!

I am putting Winslow on my list of stops for the next time we make it out that way! How neat! The boys look so cute together. xoxo
PS. Looks like 3/19 is one big birthday celebration! Are you sure you don't want to wish a Happy Birthday (3/19) to your dear friend Pink Flamingo, too?! :)

Okay . . . but what about the two people in the window in your Winslow picture?! That's funny! (I told you that you'd love Montezuema's Castle . . . cool, huh!)
