Turquoise and pink say "Spring!" to me, so I thought I would share a little spring inspiration with you today. Have a wonderful day!

Spring has Sprung

The weather is warmer. Trees and flowers are starting to bloom everywhere, but I do not call it "spring" until the nasty, yellow tassels appear on the oak trees and declare war on my allergies. Folks, it is officially spring now. I am miserable. My family is miserable. We have an alter-ego family that visits us every year at this time. They are the Hackensnorts: Sniffy, Sneezy, Snotty, Snorty and Stuffy. They have arrived for their spring visit. 

I really do love springtime, it just does not love me back. I hope you are able to enjoy it and are free from unwelcome visitors.

Happy Spring!

We enjoyed a wonderful Spring Break ski trip to New Mexico. All was wonderful, that is, until we brought home sinus infections, upper respiratory yuck and one ear infection. Now it is back to reality - school, homework, soccer and volleyball practice and springtime craziness. Hope you all had a great break!

We were blessed to have snow up on the mountain, but the weather was warm in town and allowed Fisherman to get in a little of what he loves 

Happy Monday - dont' work too hard!

Curb Appeal

I have been stalking Pinterest for home exterior ideas for one of my sweet friends. She and her hubby are building a home. They have the interior plans hammered-out and now it is time to figure out the exterior. He wanted a Texan/Mediterranean look, but she is the ultimate traditional gal, and nothing but a Southern classic will do. Guess who one this? Traditional it is. 

They don't really need my input, although they have asked for it. They have excellent taste, but when they ask, I am prepared! I am living vicariously through them. I am putting together a beautiful home, on a generous budget and it isn't costing me a dime! Here are my thoughts. What are yours?

State Champions and Being Busy

Hello loverlies! I have not been ignoring you, it's just that my life won't let me ignore it long enough to check in! Weekend before last, we loaded-up the family truckster and headed south for Fisherman's basketball state tournament. They brought the first ever State Junior High Championship trophy to their school! Go Eagles! We spent a fun weekend with the other players and their families and cheered while the boys played their hearts out! So fun! 

We are on to the next adventures and looking forward to Spring Break - emphasis on the later. What's new with you? Hope to check in soon with an update on my family room curtains!

Happy Wednesday!
