Happy Spring!

Happy Spring! We are heading out the door to Chicago this weekend...5+ hours in a car with 3 kids...a little slice of heaven!

Here is a photo of tulips on the Magnificent Mile. Very spring-y! This is the kids' first trip to Chicago and they are very excited. A visit to the American Girl Doll store is on the schedule! Every 6 year olds' dream, every father's nightmare!

Spring is my favorite time of the year! The house we bought HAD been the best landscaped in the neighborhood, then it sat empty and neglected for 18 months. Since we didn't buy it until June last year and there was plenty of work to do inside, we just did some damage control outside. This spring I hope to restore it to it's previous grandeur! I also want a small vegetable and herb garden. Can't wait to cook with things straight from my own garden!

I'll see you next week...hopefully I can complete a project!


  1. Have a great trip! You'll have to let me know how the new AG store is!

  2. What a beautiful photo! You guys have a fun and safe trip!

  3. My hubs just called me from O'Hare airport on his way back home. I love Chicago! Have a great time.


I love to hear what you think...
