we would literally astound ourselves."

Pretty Thought for Thursday

I intend to replicate this photo once the weather cooperates.  
This is my new purpose in life.

S is for Sunday

and singing in the shower
and shiny new shoes
and shopping with sister
and seventy degrees
and special someones
and sweet sixteen
and stars
and stripes
and sunshine
and simplicity
and smiles
and sneezes
and snuggles
and spring
and spectacularity

Snow, We Have Loved You, Now Leave

You were beautiful to look at driving home from work.

That whole blizzard stint was fun, and thanks for the snow day.

And we loved running around in empty snow-covered parking lots.

But the truth is that you are no longer welcome here.
So go away, and don't return until closer to the end of the year.

"Seriously. Leave," he says.

What. A. Day.

We spent 6+ hours outside raking the copious amounts of leaves that were still left in the yard from last fall.  We started at a decent hour in the morning and forty bags full of leaves, twigs, and dog poo later, we were done.  It took some prodding to get me out there at first, but once I got going it was actually really nice.  It was mindless, yet productive, and I found it to be rather therapeutic.  The rest of the world just drifted away, while we raked up all the leaves, planted tulips, and yes, we did get the Christmas lights down.  All that mixed in with frequent frisbee-throwing breaks (Holland was out there helping) made for a lovely Sunday.  I'm looking forward to planting a couple gardens, growing some more flowers, and having outdoor dinner parties this summer.

Flash Dance Friday

I am so looking forward to a sunshine-y weekend with little to do, yet ample opportunities for fun.  A girls night out with some drinks + dancing is in order for this evening to celebrate a good friend moving away.  She will be greatly missed, but any excuse to go dancing is fine with me.  One of us has already started warming up her moves, which she learned here:

Tomorrow kicks off some Saint Patrick's Day celebrations with a Saturday parade and probably something green too.  Green eggs (and ham)?  Green beer?  A new green shirt?  Maybe we will work toward our grass getting a little greener?   Who knows, but I'm in the mood to be festive.

Sunday plans include relaxing, trips to the park with the pup, catching up on some shows, and spending some time in the warm(er) weather.  If we're feeling really crazy we might even finally take the Christmas lights down.  Yeah, we're those people.

Cheers to happy weekends!

We Rode Go Karts

and they were just as fun as they were when I was eight.
