I'm sure you've heard about or experienced the unusually warm weather we've been graced with in this neck of the woods and you know what they say, warm weather knocks on the door and asks if you can come out and play Spice Girls in the back yard. No one says that, some of us however did do that, I always played as Baby Spice- Ginger Spice when I was feeling saucy. Because of fore-mentioned weather, I've been venturing into the wild - Hide yo' kids - more than usual. My boyfriend and I went to Battlefield Park on Tuesday where I talked the entire time and giggled like an escapee from a mental ward when a muddy, large, and very excited dog jumped all over me, he was such a cute doggie - I want a dog with A.D.D, we can be hyper together! Yay. Trust me, the cheese (the hyper cheese) stands alone right now, my boyfriend is very calm. I decided to return to the park on Wednesday with my ipod and my dance moves. I took my fair share of pictures, so I hope you like trees and old fences, wee.

Besides my great outdoor adventures, my boyfriend and I went to dinner on Sunday where I had an allergic reaction/possible asthma attack from mystery feathers. I don't know where these friggin feathers came from, I just know that my nasal passage went nuts and feathers were on my coat when we left. So, show yourself Chicken Lady, quit feather bombing me! I did not steal your quarter horsey ride (seriously, what is the official name of those things? I have absolutely no clue!). *cough*Anyone else watch Kids in the Hall? On Monday we saw 'Underworld: Awakening', had dinner at 'The Cheesecake Factory' aka leftovers for days, and then I stopped by Pinkberry where they had blood (angel hymns) orange as a topping. I squealed inside when I saw they had them, it would have been out loud but I was alone.

We have 9 days till we start our Florida vacation and I'm trying not to think about it too much because I'm still not flippin prepared (I don't know what to wear! Insert fake cry, a pause, then continued fake crying). The funny thing is that it has been so warm here in Virginia that I don't think Florida is going to feel all that different, besides the very important fact that I'm putting flip flops on my feet when I'm in Florida and not taking those suckers off until we leave. No shame, I like flip flops.

Thanks everyone for the comments about my precious kitteh babies. Halo insisted I share this picture of him posing on the couch so here you go. Look at his wittle belly, so cute. Hero has been bad this week, he peed twice in our bedroom and we can't figure out why. I hate when the cats act up out of nowhere especially since I am the worst disciplinarian ever, ever ever, I just go "bad, bad" and then cuddle them. I'm a bit stressed about leaving them for 2 weeks but hopefully they will be well behaved and cared for while we are gone. If not someone, who isn't of the feline classification, is going to get it. By it I mean cap in the ass. I hope to make the post I had planned about packing before I leave but ugh, I have a ton to do before we leave, I'm feeling a little frazzled! I watched 'The Ides of March' yesterday, I thought the Ryan Gosling lovers might fancy a mention of him. It was a good movie, I recommend it, even if just for ogling over the Gosling.

Today I tried to dance to playlists and ended up sitting on my ass after two songs, I did however pick up the cats and twirl them around a time or two- they hated it. If I don't end up posting before I leave for Florida just know now that I'll probably be posting a ton of pictures when I return. I hope I see an alligator when I'm in Florida... from a very far distance but still hope to see one! Have a great weekend!

I can't wait to see your Florida pictures. That looks like a cool place to explore!

Yay, sometimes, like in this post for instance, I feel like I post too many pictures but I love pictures of parks/landscapes. This park is so gorgeous and full of Civil War history, I really need to take a day and stop by all the Civil War sites. I love history, I don't know why I haven't done it yet. I can't wait to be in Florida, I'm a bit nervous.


Kayla said...

I personally like trees and old fences...(The pictures are so pretty!)

Have fun in Florida! :)


Laura Go said...

Me too, I have a special place in my heart for this park, I always feel very happy when I'm there. I'm glad you like the pictures!

I hope we do have a ton o' fun in Florida. Thanks for commenting!


Honeysuckelle said...

Thank ya, it is a gorgeous place. I didn't notice till you pointed it out but there are some skinny trees in this park. I need to throw them some bread or something the next time I pass through :P


Thick Threads said...

that park is really pretty, the pictures are great. I wish the weather was nice out here but well its snowing all day :((( freeeeezing bellow zero out there. pah! im a little jelly of your warm weather spice girl adventures...but im glad youre having good weather. and what the deuce..the chicken lady is out to get better watch out the chicken gang have been known to feather bomb people pretty bad!

Good luck packing for florida, id say get a buncha leggins and skirts, florida is not that cold this time of year right? is florida ever cold? i really wouldnt know.. thats so exciting though. I've always wanted to go to florida...siighh one day...well im looking forward to hear about your trip


Honeysuckelle said...

Thank ya, I was really hoping to go back to the park today but all of our plans took longer than expected. It was something like 50 degrees outside today but it snow is projected for tomorrow. Snow is pretty though and at least your Winter is actually Winter, our Winter has been a crap shoot, everyday could be different by 10-20 degrees - my allergies have been going nutso, they don't know what time of year it is. Speaking of that, I know, the chicken lady is horrible, I don't know what her deal is.

Thanks sweetie, I got the bulk of my packing done yesterday, I hope I'll have time to make a post before I leave about the "perils" of packing. That reminds me, I haven't packed my leggings! Florida is about 60 to 70 this time of year, I don't think it ever gets too cold but I'm not certain. I hope you get to go to Florida one day and I'll make sure and take pictures!


wait until the sunset said...

beautiful pictures! The day looked perfect for outdoor adventures!

Hoe exciting about your Florida trip! I live in my pluggers too don't worry (although over here we call them thongs, which I've heard is a bit of a faux par in the States lol). I can't wait to see your piccys!

Packing is the worst. I seriously hate it. That and unpacking. Our bags are still half unpacked at the end of my bed, siigghhh

Maybe Hero knows you guys are headed off for 2 weeks???

Honeysuckelle said...

Thank you sweetie, it was a great day, I was smiling like a fool the entire time. It is such a pretty park.

I'm really excited, we packed a majority of my clothes but the big stuff I still haven't packed - packing does suck and I agree about unpacking, especially the laundry after a trip. Pluggers, that's cute, I've never heard them called that. Thongs I've heard but yeah, I think most people in the States assume it means the underwear hehe.

I think Hero might be acting out because he haves an inkling that we will be away for a bit, my cats are so spoiled with attention and I'm worried how they will do while we are away but hopefully they will do well.

"giggled like an escapee from a mental ward" this sounds like me on a day to day basis. I have adhd so I am a hyper mess. My boyfriend is very quiet/calm too so I guess we even each other out.
I can't believe you are going to Florida. That is amazing. I've always wanted to go to Miami :) Hope you guys have fun and good luck Packing. Do ask if you need any advise! <333

I've never been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD but I'm pretty sure I have it, I hate going to the doctor, even more so as an adult since I don't have insurance. I totally get the hyper/calm relationship.

I'm so excited for the Florida trip, it's only 4 days away now - eek! We aren't going to the Miami area but I want to go there one day as well. Thank you sweetie and I hope you get to go to Miami one day.
