We arrive in Pittsburgh. It wasn't in the 70s. In fact, it was in the 80s, humid and reached 91 on Monday when we left. I was sweltering in my jeans. Stephen, trying to help, suggested that I wear the dress I wore to the wedding in the car for our ride home. "You'll be more comfortable..." hmmmm...I don't know about that.
Our whole drive back to Chicago, I didn't know what to expect when we arrived. Would it be cold? Doubtful, considering it had felt as though we were hanging out in a giant's mouth the whole weekend. My curiosity was satisfied when we arrived back on Monday night and it was hot. Stuffy. Ugh. Stephen and I don't have a/c - we have window units that are a pain in my tush to put in. Needless to say, with 30 degree temps, those units hadn't been installed yet. So we opened windows and took it like a man (who really says that?). Tuesday was hot also. Like, walk outside and never receive an ounce of coolness - just H.O.T.
Yesterday was beautiful. I was LOVING every minute of yesterday's weather. It was in the high 70s, close to 80s and just sunny and breezy. Yes, please! This morning I woke up feeling the chill in the air...checked the temperature and it was 55. I am so confused. My body doesn't know whether or not to sweat or goose bump up. It's really gonna be thrown off its kilter when the temperatures hit the 90 degree neighborhood like they're calling for. I'm not quite sure what season it is - is it fall? is it winter? is it summer? Nope. It's spring - unpredictable and crazy spring. With that I'll leave you with some spring-ish pictures I took a couple of weeks ago in the city...it'll make me feel as though it's a steady spring out there (does one of those even exist???).

Every year, sometime in April, the Macys on State Street (otherwise known as the old Marshall Fields) has a flower show inside the store. There are hundreds of gorgeous flowers all over the place!
How's spring springin' in your neck of the woods???
