You're Gonna Think I'm Crazy!

You are probably going to think I'm WACKO but I've packed my bags and am leaving sunny, warm Houston for the Appalachian Mountains for what I'm calling a SNOW-CATION!
This is what the flowers look like outside my office and home.......pretty, huh?

Today was SO sunny, it was a great day to take pictures of all the flowers that are in bloom.

I walk by this every morning before going in my's so pretty I can look at it without putting a little smile on my face.
Before leaving for work I saw this beautiful Angel's Trumpet in my back yard. The morning sun looks so pretty shining through the leaves.
and me crazy....I'm leaving for a week to PLAY in THIS!!!! WOOHOO!!! Snow makes me giddy.

  6. Yep, you are totally crazy!!! Seriously, if you love snow good for you. I wish I were more like that.....but I'm so not. If it's below 78 degrees I AM MISERABLE!

    I cannot believe all the flowers. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL! I'm soooo jealous.

    Have a GREAT time on your trip.

  7. I hope you enjoy your snow vacation in the mountains. I live in PA and we have had sooooo much snow this year. It is great to see all your lovely flowers and the green grass.

    Thank you so much for stopping by today and wishing me happy birthday. I truly appreciate it. Please stop by again any time. Amy :)

  8. I don't think you're crazy at all. Snow is one thing I miss about being in the south. Have a great trip!

  9. The flowers are beautiful,but im with you girl. I would love to be in some snow.

  10. I would never call you crazy - but we have been living with snow and cold weather for months - I am ready for sunshine. The flowers are beautiful.

  11. HI Susan,

    Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

  14. Yes, Susan, I think you are Seriously though, it's nice to have a change of weather once in awhile. I'm so wishing for some sunshine and to see flowers again. When our snow starts melting it's just a muddy mess.
    Have a great time.

  15. Oh, I don't think you're crazy at all!! If I didn't live here in New England (and see MORE than enough snow every winter), I'd be excited to go visit the snow, too!!!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage

  16. Hey Susan I tagged you in a game if you want to join!

  17. Hey Susan, thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a nice comment...I just live upstate from you. I'm ready for spring and sunshine. Ask me in a couple of months though and I'll be ready to go up north for some snow too. LOL!

  18. You are not crazy, I told my husband that I NEEDED to see snow, well before I could plan a trip it snowed (in LOUSIANA for goodness sake). Have fun for the rest of us southern folk...MISSY

  19. I think this is just the kind of holiday to totally invigorate you and prepare you for the long, lazy days of summer. Enjoy!

  20. I DO think you're crazy!! (JK) We have tons of snow here and I am wishing to go somewhere warm.

    Have a fun time!

  21. Well.. at least you have something good to come home to!! :-)

    Happy Valentines day!


  22. I hope you have a blast!

    Hugs~ J.

    P.S. I don't think you are crazy~ we don't get to play in snow here. :)

  23. I understand completely. When you live in a place where it pretty much never snows, it is a fun thing to get to play in it! I'm pretty sure I would get tired of it if I lived where it snows all winter though!

  24. Goor morning Susan :)

    I don't think you're crazy at all! Snow is wonderful. Have fun!!

    The flowers are so beautiful there :)

  29. It's okay if it's short lived...even magical! But I don't want it every day for sure! Have fun, Susan!

    It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood! :)

  30. Since we have not seen anything but snow for months....YES i vote you mad!! Have a great time!!!!
