{winter fun}

Hi there...
Just thought I would share a couple photos from this past weekend!!
Remember how I said....I am DETERMINED to get out there and enjoy winter?!!?
Well this past weekend....my huband, myself and our friends bundled up and went up to St. Joe, MI to watch a dog parade!!
Silly, huh?!?!? But it was SOOOO much fun. In fact, we might try and enter our dogs for next year:) but they would probably act up too much~

There was every kind of dog you could imagine! They were all sooo cute~
Of course, we had to watch santa come to town in the fire truck~I don't know what it is but parades just really make me feel like a kid all over again. There is just something so magical about them and well, when they include dogs it's even more fun:)

My friend and I being silly with the snowman.I tell you...if I didn't know any better i'd say we were long, lost sisters. I love her because she is always just as silly as I am!!
Notice Lake Michigan in the background....I think there is just something so wrong about looking at water when there's SNOW on the ground!!But then again....a little vino and a frosty beer and all is ok again:)

Hope you all have a super happy week!! Remember life is short...so get out there and ENJOY it:)

  1. what a fun weekend! good for you for trying to enjoy winter. I wish I would have done more of that when i lived in south bend.

    I love St. Joe Michigan. Thanks for your kind words about Meta.

    I hope you have a great week too. I LOVE your blog it fills me with so many rays of sunshine! Can you believe it, you are sending me sunshine here in Cali! :)

  2. Great girlfriends are the best things!

    Looks like you had a blast, and there is nothing like a little vino to top of a good old fashioned doggie parade (if they had a parade like that here I would totally go to it!)

  3. You're truly determined to go out there! It is inspiring, but I'm reluctant to leave my cozy home..., and only do so on weekends for grocery shopping and power walking!

  4. love the jackets w/ fur lined hoods, too cute.

    it was a sweaty 90 degree day here...how nice your snow looks to me!

  5. I want to go to a dog parade! How fun!

    I'm hanging out inside today - a foot of snow tells me so. :)

    That one big beer your bestie is drinking!

  6. I was at a parade too but I have never heard of a dog parade before. Too funny, and FUN!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I really appreciate your thoughts:):)
