 2. What I’m doing for Spring Break:
I think we are staying here and doing a few fun things with the kids — like movies, going for hikes, riding our bikes. I hope the weather is good!

3. Favorite Spring flower:
  I ♥ Daffodils and tulips. I have a few that come up in my backyard each year.

4. Do you have a garden?
Yes! Last year we started our first Square Foot Garden. We built the boxes and did the whole thing. It was so fun to see everything grow and then eating all of the fresh veggies all Summer! I can’t wait to do it again!
5. If so, what do you grow.

Since we planted two square foot gardens, they didn’t take up much space, but we were able to grow many, many things. We grew all sorts of varieties of tomatoes, carrots, peppers, beans, peas, sunflowers, radishes, cucumbers, even corn!

6. Do you do Spring cleaning?

Not really, although this year I am going to! I really need to clean our closets out. I did my closet in January it felt so good! I need to go through my kids’ rooms and my office!

7. What is your weather *really*  like right now?  

It is really nice today — high 50’s and sunny. There is just a small patch of snow still on my front lawn! Of course it will probably snow again tomorrow 🙂

8. Snapped any weather related  photos lately? Share one with us!

Here’s one from last week. It dumped snow all last weekend. But now it’s almsot all melted!

9. What’s your favorite thing to do  on a sunny afternoon?
Today I am sitting on my couch and the sun is streaming through the windows on me. So nice! I am gearing up to start running on my trail again! My favorite thing to do in the Spring/Summer/Fall!

10. Favorite TV show right now? 
I am excited for a couple new shows right now — Dancing With The Stars — I think it will be a good one this season! And The Parenthood — I am excited to see that one too!

What are your favorite things about Spring??
Happy Monday! 
 Go over to Amber’s to join up — it’s a great way to meet people!

Friend Makin’ Mondays:

15 Mar

When I first started blogging almost 2 years ago, I never thought I would make such strong friendships with people I would meet through blogging. That first summer I stumbled across a wonderful little get-together called Friend Makin’ Mondays. I joined in and after participating through the summer I got to know some wonderful people. Now I can’t imagine my life without those people in it. We also connected through FaceBook and I feel like I know them so well. Although we have not met in real life….yet.

Since I started hosting giveaways on Monday I have not been able to link up to FMM — but I really miss it. If you want to meet some really special, wonderful ladies, go over to Amber’s blog and join FMM. It is a fantastic way to meet new friends!!!

Today Amber is asking us to answer these questions:
***

I am…. Enjoying my Monday so far. The kids are home from school and I feel like I am getting back on schedule.
https://i0.wp.com/famous4recipes.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/maccheese.jpg
I think…. I am going to make homemade Mac & Cheese tonight. One of my kids’ faves.

I should… Go clean up my craft room.

I dream…. About having more time to get things done!!

I want…. The sun to melt all this snow away…

I know… I have wonderful friends. I am so blessed!

I don’t like…. Feeling like I have too much to do.
https://i2.wp.com/gamingbolt.com/wp-content/uploads/popcorn.jpg
I smell… Popcorn. My kids love to make it after school for a snack.

I hear…. The sound of my kids playing with their friends. It makes me so happy.

I fear…. About so many things. Mostly that my children will be okay.
http://www.suchthings.ca/.a/6a00e551a58202883401156f0d36f3970c-500wi
I search… Everywhere for those darn mismatched socks. Where do they go in the wash??

I miss…. My dad. It has almost been five years since he passed away. It seems like just yesterday that he was here…

I always… Miss my husband when he is gone. Right now he is in London and it’s so wild that it is bed time there while the sun is out here…

I crave…. Chips and salsa. Sounds so good right about now…

I remember… All the fun time we had on our trip last week. I am so glad we were able to get away together.

I need….. To get to bed earlier. Five hours of sleep is not enough…

I forget…. How fast the kids grow up. I was looking at pictures of Ella and now she is so tall!

I feel…. Really happy today. I got so much accomplished and I feel like this week is going to be great!

I can…. Make every moment count right now…

I can’t…. Waste my time worrying about things I can’t change.

I am happy…. To be with my kids and that they are healthy and happy.

I sing…. Nooooo, I’m not a singer…

I listen… I am loving Vampire Weekend
https://i0.wp.com/ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41itc9RwurL._AA260_.jpg
I shop….. I am hoping that Target gets some cute sandals in for Spring.
https://i2.wp.com/www.mommyniri.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/Choc-Indulgence-6-Pack.jpg
I eat…. I bought some more of those Jello Pudding Mousse cups. Yummy! I am thinking about how good it will taste when I eat it tonight…

I love….. FMM and checking in with friends! Go over to Amber’s to join in the fun!!!

FMM: Favorite Scents

9 Nov

It’s Friend Makin’ Monday! I haven’t been able to participate in the last few, and I really missed it. So I’m so happy to be able to join in this week over at darling Amber’s blog. Her question this week is:

What are your favorite candles/scents?

I love burning candles in the Fall and Winter.  Some of my favorite scents are:



Pumpkin



cinnamon




anything apple



I love Salt City candles. Some scents I want to try are:

Cafe Paris
The rich smell of the chocolate, the sweet smell of the caramel, the strong aroma of the vanilla beans all combined together to give you the energizing scent of an espresso.


Oatmeal Raisin
Sweet, fragrant and wonderfully comforting, the smell of freshly-baked oatmeal raisin cookies is a happy greeting to friends and family. A heady mix of spices and wholesome grains with just a touch of creamy vanilla, cookies are always welcome


I have always wondered about those no burn candles. Have you ever tried those? And what are your favorite brands/scents of candles? Go over to Amber’s to join in the fun!

And Happy Birthday to my darling sister Ashley! This is a picture of her with her sweet little baby. Aren’t they cute? Have a great day Ashley!!!


Have a great day!
XOXO
