I Have Spring Fever!

Okay, I have HAD it!  I am DONE!  UGH!  It's almost April, which usually means warmer weather in Arkansas.  Last week it was 85 degrees and this week the high is 57.  Right now it's 43 degrees outside.  I am SO OVER cool weather.  I got enough snow this year to last me a long while.  Now, I know I shouldn't be complaining, especially because I know MANY of you have been dealing with TONS of snow all winter.  In fact, some of you got snow a few days ago.  So to y'all, please ignore my mindless ranting. 

I have been bombarded the last two weeks with pictures of my friends' wonderful Spring Break trips to the beach. 

My skies outside look more like this:


How am I supposed to get excited about making E some cute spring clothes when it's all gloomy outside?  Not even to mention that I cannot seem to get excited about going to the gym in this weather.  ICK!  The good news is that starting next week there will be a new class offered at the gym.

Yes, Zumba starts next week.  I cannot wait to get out there and shake my groove thing.  I am totally excited about tripping over my own feet as I try to keep up with the ever changing moves.  I am delighted at the possiblity of making a complete fool out of myself.  woo hoo.  Although, I will say that if Zumba makes me look anything like

this chick - it would totally be worth being a laughing stock at the gym.  I don't even think I have those muscles under my fat.  Maybe I should get some spray on abs like this guy:


What do you think?  Have you ever done Zumba?  Did it work?  Do you have Spring Fever too? 



  1. You'd better believe I have Spring Fever, but I'm wondering...where is that warm sunshine we had last week? It's been cold, rainy, and downright miserable here the past several days. I have had ENOUGH! Abby's on Spring Break all next week, so we'd better have some good weather or I'm not going to be a happy camper! You know the saying, "If mama ain't happy...ain't nobody happy!" How true it is! :)

    I would love to try Zumba as much as I love to dance! I saw that Hoda was talking on the Today Show this morning that she'd tried it and it was so much FUN! So, you go, girl...shake that thang!

  2. Spring fever here too! It's in the 30's and 40's here and I hate it! We had a few warm days in March, but it's back to the cold. I think the average for this time is 50 so we should at least have that!

    I have not tried Zumba but a lot of people tell me I'd like it because I love to dance.

  3. Spring Fever here too! I am dying. I have started Spring cleaning in the hopes that someone somewhere gets a clue! I hope I can start Zumba this next month! Want to so bad. Maybe if we all ask Santa to get a hold of Mother Nature and see what her deal is we can get Spring back!

  4. I am completely with you about the weather! I'm about to have to be hospitalized for Seasonal Affective Disorder!
    I have never done Zumba, or any other kind of exercise class, for that matter. Hope you have fun!

  5. Have fun at Zumba! I tried it once at our gym (when I went like 6 months ago). ;) It was fun.

    I'm ready for some warm weather too. We never go anywhere, but I'm looking forward to being out on my deck. :)

  6. You crack me up! No, I have not done Zumba. You're going to have to be my guinea pig and let me know how it goes.

    And boy do I agree about spring fever. I wanted to turn the heat back on this weekend but a certain party pooper said that he would NOT turn it on at the end of March.


    It RAINED through almost the entire azalea season here. I can't even get good pictures.

  7. Ohhhh I so have spring fever. It is snowing here today and I am like you I'm fed up with it. Mother nature please bring us some sunshine. I was just looking at some super cute Easter shirts I want to make for Lindsey but it is so cold outside I cant get motivated. I did Zumba for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I do it with a group of friends from church. We laugh so hard we cant keep up with the model/teacher. Its a blast you should try it. If I can do it anyone can!

  8. Oh, I SOOOO have spring fever! We almost hit 70 today! It was heaven! Only it's supposed to storm again tomorrow. Boo.

    I've never done Zumba - but I'm very excited to hear how it goes!
