Baby,It's Cold Outside!

Hey Everyone!
Is it cold enough for you? We are getting our fair share of cold here in OC.  Maybe my blood is thin but regardless of why, I  have low tolerance for this kind of cold.
Living in So.Southern Calif brings about a feeling of mild weather that we all come to expect.....
Laguna Beach Sunset... {pic taken by Jack!}
According to the news, we are to prepare for a deep chill.  Like 29 degrees! I want to chuckle a little because I know my cousins in Michigan and all you Canadian folks are thinking we should just suck it up. My son is home for the month, working locally instead of in NY. I believe it's warmer in NY right now.  I think most people here do suck it up although the problem is, we don't really have the proper clothing unless Skiing is a big pass time. {I gave that up a decade ago}. This is where "Layering" comes in.
Besides the cold..... everyone is sick! Nothing like being inside a warm coffee shop with a bunch of sneezing, coughing humans. I have a visual of germs festering on door knobs or counters and floating in the air. Ewwww. Not good. Luckily, it's only temporary. Hope you all got your flu shot this season.
Whale Watching Boat spotted in Laguna Beach
One of my Instagram photos above. I snapped this one the other day at lunch. Hope I'm looking when the whales swim by! According to, the water is about 52 degrees right now. I'm pretty sure the whales are not happy campers. It might be a while before I see anything swim by.
In my last post, I shared that my youngest brother {and his Bride} are having a baby in July. We are so's the first blurry ultra sound picture.
My New Niece/Nephew looking like a Tad-Pole.  *Love*

They'll know in a couple weeks if it's a boy or girl.  I'm wondering,does pre-natal care consist of several ultra sounds these days?  I only had one and that was to rule out twins in my first and third pregnancy.  We needed a reason before getting the little blurry picture. I'll have to ask why they had one earlier this week and having a repeat in a few more weeks.
I can't wait to start sewing little baby things! This is so cool because I'll get my baby fix. I worry that my new daughters can sense my anxiousness to be a Grandma! No pressure or anything. Haha. No, I don't really bug them although the entire world knows I cannot wait for the big moment.
Wouldn't you rather see my grandbaby pics instead of my furbaby pics?
Mia's Mani/Pedi. We got polish all over the place that day.
See? Don't  you agree that I need a little "mini-me" to sew and do fun things with? Everyone loves Spa Sunday at my house.
Here's to less cool weather and a wonderful weekend.
A warm drink for those chilly days!
Until Next Time,


  1. Good luck surviving the cold front! I'm from NY so no big deal haha but it has been a little warmer than usual. Yesterday we had rain instead of snow!

    And congrats on the baby news, your brother must be so excited! Pre-natal care is a little different these days. We had three ultrasounds when I was pregnant, once when he was tiny, one to find the sex, and then I had another to check the babys location closer to my due date.

    1. Hello Holly!
      Thanks for stopping by ~ I will head on over to yours in just a bit.
      It does seem like NY and CA have switched winter weather doesn't it? haha. We'll survive.
      So it's normal to do 3 ultra sounds? wow, I had no idea. Apparently things have changed in 28 years!! It will be fun to re-live it all with my sister-in-law and again when my kids go through it.
      Enjoy MY warm weather... I'll make sure my son takes this cold stuff back to NY with him when it's time for him to go. :-)
      ~ take care, Tammy
