Sunny Days

I actually woke up to sunshine this morning, but the weather in Colorado lately has not been very Colorado-like at all. The weather has actually felt more Michigan-like than anything. My home state of Michigan is usually the cloudy and cold that has been Colorado as of late. Needless to say, I am ready for some sunshine!

My mom recently flew in from Michigan, and she wants to go back home because it was much nicer there! She is shocked at our snow and clouds, because she was expecting sun and heat. Me too.

In the past week it snowed at least 4, it might have been 5, times, and I think I saw the sun for about 2.5 hours in the last 7 days. Seriously. Not cool, Colorado. Not. Cool.

This is what it looked like last week. It has since melted, but it's supposed to get cold again this week.

Last week I spent some time visiting my husband in Las Vegas, because my husband is still there training for his job. He's been there over a month now, and I have been missing him like crazy. The time apart, even though I'm having a tough time with it now, will be worth it. My husband's new job will have him home every night, and I am looking forward to more time together.

For now, I enjoy visiting him in Las Vegas, because it means I get to escape the Colorado snow and clouds.

Here are a few of pictures from Nevada, and I hope they make you feel warm inside. I know that I could use some warm sun right now.

After not much longer we'll be moving to Florida! I recently read online that the area where we're moving holds a record for most sunny days in a row at 700-something days. Needless to say, I am thrilled to be moving somewhere so sunny and warm!

I hope everyone is having a lovely spring!

Has the weather been nice to you?


  1. Don't you just love the sun?! The weather here in Utah is starting to get better! This San Diego girl is finally feeling more comfortable :) haha beautiful pics by the way!

  2. here I am complaining about a little rain, and you're practically snowed in! glad to here it's gone now. No wonder you are excited to move to Florida!

  3. Snow in May should be a crime!!! So glad that you had the chance to get away and get some sunshine! At least we know that there are plenty of sunny days in your future with the upcoming move to Florida :)

  4. It's so hard for me to believe that its snowing where you are because its so hot here in San Antonio. Ok well its in the 80's here but its still hot. Not complaining though it could be worse it could be near 100...yikes!
    Glad you had fun in the pics :)


  5. So exciting, I want to move to the warmth! I LOVE that you had an intricate icings cake:) so yummy!

  6. yay! the weather was actually pretty here today with blue skies and sun! YES! xo

  7. 700 days?! ummm....can i move there too?

  8. It's been gross here for the past few days too (no snow, but rainy and cold!) and it's supposed to continue for the REST OF THE WEEK. So yucky.

    I must say though that those pictures of Vegas made me jealous - and the fact that you're moving to Florida makes me even more jealous. Siiiiigh. I would love to live someplace like that. Take me with you? haha

  9. I couldn't agree more! This weather is more East Coast than Colorado. I want my sun back!

  10. I seriously cannot believe that y'all have that much snow!! Ahhh! So crazy!! The weather has been so pretty here. The past few weeks it was 90 and hot and humid, but this week it has been in the 70's and just perfect!!

  11. When are you guys mmoving? Pretty soon? We will have to come visit you!
