Spring is in the air!

  • Spring has arrived!!! We've had a series of absolutely gorgeous days around here, and we are really enjoying it. I'm normally not that into spring. I am more of a fall girl. I love winter clothes, hot chocolate, the holidays, etc. However, this year I am really, really excited for spring. The warm sun feels so nice - I am ready for it! There is a rejuvenating feeling in the air. I potted some flowers for the porch over the weekend, and Jamie has been doing some work in the yard. Things are looking nice and green out there. :)

  • Twilight was released on DVD last Saturday, and YES, I already have my copy! I wasn't into it enough to wait in line at midnight Friday night, but we made a trip to WalMart Saturday afternoon and luckily they still had one display of DVDs left. I was telling Jamie how excited I am, because I just found out that Eclipse will be in theaters June 30,2010 (so only about 6 months after the release of New Moon). Then he compared me to a Trekkie, which I just found insulting because those folks are weirdos. And surely I am not a weirdo....hmmm....maybe if I showed up at the premiere in a Volturi costume. (No, I do NOT plan on it! LOL)

  • My dad and Jamie are bonding over March Madness. They've been texting each other quite a bit since the tournament began. I'm glad they have each other, because that means mom and I don't have to pretend to be interested. LOL It's not that I don't like it, but I just don't have the kind of time I used to have to really follow all the teams, and it's not as fun to watch when you don't care who wins. One of the girls I know online has a brother who plays for Gonzaga, so that is pretty neat! I caught part of their game the other day and it was fun to root for him.

  • Baseball tournaments are officially over! So, we have regained our weekends until playoff time. Hooray!

  • Easter Sunday is only a little more than 2 weeks away, and Disney on Ice is only 3 weeks away. I cannot believe it. I am really glad I did the Easter Bunny shopping early this year - it has really snuck up on me.
