|enjoying the flowers on the viburnum that FINALLY came this year|
Where to begin in the wide world of updates. As you can see from the pic above, we have been enjoying spring. As a kid my parents had (well the still have) a viburnum tree that I just loved, so when my hubby and I bought our house (8 years ago) my parents bought us one. This is the first year that we have actually gotten flowers on it which makes he have high hopes for our gardening aspirations this year!
Along with our beautiful flowers, I think I mentioned before that my hubby was building me a few raised garden beds so we could try our hand at growing our own veggies, and as of this mornings report we have sprouts! We planted a few starters that were already going, but added some squash, zucchini and peas that we are starting from seeds and the hubs and the mini me texted this morning to report sprout sightings.
With veggies on our minds, but not yet in our grasp, we took our first trip to the farmers market as well. LOVE the farmers market! We opted for the smaller one closer to our house and got some great finds...spearmint honey amongst them. What fun would the market be without cute stuff for the kids, seeing this makes me love broccoli just that much more.
found a nest of baby birds in our honeysuckle
had our last day of pre-school (tears), and thanks to pinterest I have a new tradition started to surprise my girl with when she graduates from high school
and we are getting ready for our first recital...more fun pics of that to come next week after the big event. dress rehearsal was last night and was SO much fun!
So those are the past few weeks in my world and why I have been absent from the page. I do want to discuss my thoughts on this whole Abercrombie and Fitch craziness and why I will never shop their stores again...but that upsets me and I want this to be a happy post!
