  12. Elizabeth: In what state do you live? I'm just curious. If you get a chance, just pop by my blog and leave me a comment to let me know. Thanks so much.
    I'm guessing it's not too far north since you said the weather is getting warmer. I'm in Las Vegas, and it's plenty warm here!! (and only getting hotter)
