Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : Spring Fever

Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : Spring Fever

Last night at 5:10, I was finishing up dinner prep and looked out my kitchen window.

The sun was just starting to set over the horizon.

I opened up the back screen door, breathed in the view, and murmured a quiet

I think that groundhog was right … spring’s coming fast this year, people.

Okay, sure, we may have one or two more wintry events, but I always just picture God sweeping off his back porch of the last remnants of the white powdery stuff.

Before we know it, that sun will get higher and warmer.

The air will feel so light and comforting that we’ll open up the windows to let it in.

Songs will start playin’ on the radio that make us feel like teenagers again …

and we’ll crank the volume.

MOMtor Monday @ Mothering From Scratch

Good morning, darlings.

We are not going to talk about Downton Abbey.

I’m just not ready.panduan android

Instead, I’d love for you to head on over to one of my favorite places on the web …

Mothering from Scratch.

Today I’m hanging out with Melinda and Kathy and talking about children’s birthday parties.

They can be sweet, they can be fun, but at times, they can be totally outrageous.

I’m sharing how I try to keep it simple, and we’d love you to share your thoughts there, too.

See you there!

Sweet Little Things . Week 6

Sweet Little Things . Week 6

Okay, now I’ll say Uncle!

I prefer to save my seasonal complaints for the summer, because I am not a heat person. It weighs me down and zaps my energy. And since I’m guilty of issuing forth an It’s too hot! or This is relentless! every other 90% humidity day in New England, I figure I should keep my mouth shut from September through March {what’s not to love in the fall, anyway?}

So I’ll say it just once this winter: I need spring.

I need fresh air, and cool breezes, and the end of cold and flu season.

The last few weeks at our house have been germ city. I came down with a terrible sore throat and head cold, which was passed along to my husband, who tried to take it up a notch, then The Boy started complaining about discomfort {and he never complains about feeling under-the-weather} … each of us saw a doctor and were told we did not have strep, so we just plugged away and drank our fluids and kept hoping the colds would pass.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Then Wednesday night, I came down with a case of I-must-have-swallowed-a-flaming-golf-ball. And this time it was the real thing. Even the doctor said she hadn’t ever seen such a scarlet-colored throat.


Even so, there were lots of things to feel good about this week.

Letting go of more stuff. I’ve held onto this sweater since my wedding rehearsal dinner back in May of 1999. I loved it. Baby blue with this gorgeous beading, paired so beautifully with a pale blue mini skirt and a matching cami.

Let’s just say that my mini-skirt-wearing days are over, and the cropped look of this sweater was no longer flattering.

Still, there it stayed in my closet month after month, serving no purpose, until now. I’ve decided I’m passing it on to a lovely little gal down the street, whom I think will just love it.


Ladybugs. Spotted this guy on my windowsill the other day. That’s a good sign, right?


Pretty flash cards. I truly believe that there’s no reason a kid shouldn’t enjoy studying these days. Just look at these flash cards. Crazy cute. No learning tool looked that nice back in the ’70s and ’80s. Back in my day

Flash Cards

Fun treats on your doorstep. Among the many great reasons for your husband to follow your blog is the fact that he’s always hip to what’s on your wish list. Nothing gets by this guy, so after a long day on Wednesday, I came home to this fun package from my Valentine.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy weekend!
