Weekend Round-Up {6-15-13}

lbgc - weekend round-up

Another week down .... Man, I'll tell ya, it seems like time is just flying by, doesn't it?! We're already into the middle of June, people!! How did that happen?! I'm still thinking it should be April or May .... but definitely not the middle of June!

I'm getting a really good dose of Arizona right about now too ..... did y'all know it gets really hot here! Triple digits every single day ... and we still have all summer to go!!! I think I might melt! Our neighbor, Alice, stopped by yesterday to bring over some produce from her garden and we talked about the monsoon season and the "haboobs" ..... apparently, they are a sight to see and as crazy as it sounds, I am kinda looking forward to seeing my first one! I've experienced all sorts of weather - tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards ..... but never a haboob! When people first started telling me about them, I had to ask them what that even was because I had never heard of such a thing! 

I finally got on the Instagram train this week .... If you're on there, feel free to come by and follow me!

Here's a look at what happened around my little spot of the blogging world this week:
