I don’t normally bite my nails, but I’m in full blown nail-biting mode right now.`
Tomorrow my husband and I are meeting the parents of my rock climber son’s fiancee. I hope my hubby doesn’t pop any off-color jokes, and I hope I don’t talk one hundred miles an hour. That’s what I usually do when I’m nervous.
But I got my hair cut and eyebrows waxed, and bought a new shirt to wear. So hopefully I’ll look calm, cool, and collected on the outside, even though I’m a nervous wreck on the inside. Wish me luck. 🙂
And in spring news …
My husband mowed our front lawn the other day for the first time this year. It called for a celebration with roses before the dandelions pup up.
I bought a bag full of gladiolus bulbs. I’m counting the days until I can cut cut some.
Grow, babies, grow!
And speaking of flowers …
Adirondack Girl at Heart used my Fresh Flowers stencil to give an old crate an easy makeover. #mustcopy
And these indigo marbled eggs … they are stunning. You can’t eat them if you use real eggs, so use faux eggs and you’ll have egg works of art.
These adorable seed packet drawers – I’m so in love with them. You wouldn’t believe how they started out though. See the DIY here.
More random weekend thoughts …
Have you watched Mercy Street? I just discovered it, so I’ve been binge-watching seasons 1 & 2 (affiliate). I love history-based shows and this one has me hooked. I just finished season 1 and am getting ready to start season 2, so don’t tell me what’s going to happen if you’ve already seen it. If you haven’t watched it, it’s a Civil War story about two nurses. One is a northern abolitionist and the other is a southern belle. I’m so bummed though, because apparently there won’t be a season 3.
I’ll have to find another show to binge watch now. Any suggestions?
Speaking of binging …
I bought a big jar of Nutella last weekend. Nutella and pretzels are a match made in heaven.
And I just realized that I never announced the giveaway winner of the Family Movie Night $50 Walmart gift card. Oops – my bad! The winner is Ellie Wright. Have fun with your gift card, Ellie.
And before I go, can I ask you a favor? I’ve had a goal of reaching 50,000 Facebook followers for a longggg time.
These days, it’s hard to get your blog posts seen on Facebook or reach new followers unless you fork over money to Facebook.
I totally get it. They are a business and need to make money, but my fork is overworked right now, so if you aren’t already following me on Facebook, I hope you’ll take a moment to do that, and also share my page on Facebook to your friends and family. I truly appreciate it. 🙂 Just click HERE or on the image below.
Vaya con Dios,
