spring has sprung

It's definitely starting to feel a lot more like Springtime around here.  We finally broke the cold snap that is winter, and I think we have said adios to winter & snow!!  I couldn't be more happy!!

I can always tell when things have taken a turn towards Spring when the pond in my backyard melts and it finally happened! Last week it was still half way frozen, and today it looks like this.

Not only is it melted, but can you spot the little friendly creatures that have come to my backyard.   Need a close up??

Well hello pretty geese, so happy to see you again (that is until you start pooping every where).   We also had some other winged creatures stop by to say hello to me today.
Overall, I just love when this time of year rolls around and I get to enjoy all this de-thawing, as well as the nice scenery of  beautiful brown grass!!  I know you're so jealous right??

Besides this beautiful Springtime weather, I have many exciting things coming up in the next couple weeks.  My sister & nieces are flying in from California on Wednesday and will be here for two weeks to celebrate Easter with us.  

I just can't wait to smooch on these two little cuties!!! Can you blame me??? :)

I hope you all have a blessed week!!

i'm sorry but i just HAVE to brag..

I hope you all had a great weekend!!! It's finally warming up here in Minnesota, we actually reached 60 degrees yesterday! Say what?!  Spring is in the air & I am LOVING it!!

Anyways, I just HAVE to brag on my sweet little nephew Brinley.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I finally got my new camera that I had been saving for awhile for, and my sister in law got a new one as well, and so we have been experimenting with all the fun new settings options we have.  Anyways, my sweet little adorable nephew was so willing to cooperate with us and be our little photography experiment.  He is so stinking cute that I just had to share these sweet photos we caught of him yesterday.

I mean really, can you blame me??!!  I hope you all have a blessed week!!

dreaming of corkboards

I haven't had a great DIY project in a while, and I am just itching to get back in the game and re-vamp something!!!  I have been dreaming of making a great new LARGE corkboard for over my brand new desk in my loft.  I absolutely love corkboards and I am going to be digging into a project here very shortly.

In the meantime, I have been admiring & being inspired by other great corkboard projects here in bloggyland and wanted to share some of them with you all so you can be inspired as well.

This great corkboard done by Rachelle over at Fingerprints on the Fridge is just AMAZING!!

Here are the rest of my inspiration pics, I am SO bad and don't save where I get them from.  I am really not trying to not give proper credit, I am just bad at collecting data!! :)

Ahh, complete corkboard bliss.  I can't wait to get working on this project!

Have a great weekend!
