Dude.  Y'all are making me COLD on Facebook, Twitter and Blogger!  Talking about snow and bitterly cold temperatures!  I don't want to see or hear anything about the 20s right now!  Florida is so weird.  I'm still not used to rarely needing to think about wearing or bringing a coat.  Last night I had on a thin sweater and walked out of the house without a coat.  Once I was outside I said, "Oh!  I forgot my coat... ehhh... I don't need it."  That's how not cold it was outside.  Crazy.  You're probably saying, "It's Florida, what do you expect??"  Yeah I'm in north Florida.  That means it gets colder here than say Stace face down in South Florida which is tropical year round.  She brings out the Northface when it hits 60!  Lolol. It doesn't feel or look like Christmas around here considering a lot of trees are still covered in leaves and yesterday it was pretty cold, high 51, low 44.  That's bitter for here!  Today it's just Gainesville cold which means 63 at 8 p.m.  Someone, a lot of someones probably, is wearing a scarf & a coat and complaining about the cold.

My body temperature has adjusted to being warm, though so I'm a little frightened of what's going to happen to me when I head up to Atlanta, then Charlotte.  It's supposed to be 82 here tomorrow, low is 64 (yes, I'm slightly bragging) and when I get to Atlanta, the high is in the lower 50s... low? 32.  BRRRR!  I'm mentally shuddering just thinking about it.  I do have lots of cute coats, scarves, gloves & ear muffs I never get to wear so I suppose I can bear the chill if it means I can break out some of my cuteness!  I was kind of hoping for a cool day before classes ended so I could wear a sweater since I think I've had one day to wear a sweater to class all semester.  I wanted to be able to break out some stuff they'd never seen!  I think I still did but who knows?

Here are some Christmas party photos!  I loved the look of the lit garland wrapped around the exposed beams!  Very festive and fun!  And since it was at a house with a barn attached, they also had 3 horses!  Look at my homie Monty chilling with me!  He is totally posing!

That's how it is here! It was in the 50s today and the Texans were talking about its cold. I'm from MI, now there is cold! I love being in Texas, I'm dreading going home to snow for Christmas.

Quit the bragging.. You'll get a good dose of winter next week. As much as I don't like the 90s and 100s of Gainesville, I'll take some of that 63 at 8 pm.

Only you could get a horse to pose with you. LOL

not the north face!! HAHAHA!! but yeah, its definitely a different Florida up by you. It snowed (okay, flurried) in Tally once!!

I would be that person in a coat and scarf, upset and thinking I could NEVER live anywhere further north than Gainesville!

How cold was in in ATL last NYE?? That was bitter! I don't even know what I'm going to do this year!
