Spring is in the Air . . .

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE SPRINGTIME!!!! It's my FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE time of the year! Everything feels new and CLEAN!! I've been busy at work hanging new curtains, removing curtains from my bedroom for allergy reasons, intalling laminate flooring with my hubby (we're finishing it up on Saturday), just planting a bunch of wildflower seeds in Adrianna's garden, planted some Carolina Jessamine (Texas Yellow Bells, gorgeous climbing vines that are evergreen and on $5 at Walmart!!), busy fertilizing, weed killing and so on and my Cannas are coming in!!! I'm so excited!

Beni and I also went out and bought some tomato plants, pepper plants, basil, Italian parsely, strawberry plants and a WATERMELON PLANT! LOL, let's see if this works! :o) We are going to plant a little garden in the backyard, I can't wait! I LOVE to garden, I love to watch things grow and flourish. Springtime also means birthday parties galore, allergies from hell, but the best part about Spring??? My little man's birthday!!! My baby boy is turning two!! I can't believe it. We are throwing him a big bash at Fritz Park and despite what I want, we are doing an Elmo Party. It's what he loves, so why not, right? I can come up with SUCH better themes, party planning is what I LOVE to do, but will settle on Elmo. :o) I've ordered his "birthday banner" from birthdayexpress.com, bought the birthday supplies, am still researching a concession of some sort, cotton candy or snow cone machine, have to ORDER his cake (it's just easier), have to go buy a few dozen goldfish and little mini fishbowls to give as favors at the party. (sorry moms, it's just easier for me, so guess what? You get to take home a goldfish!LOL) And well, the list can really go on and on. What would I do with free time? Oh yeah, I had some this week and I spent it cleaning closets and playing with the kids, no wonder I'm in such a good mood!

I'm having a new friend over for a playdate so gotta run....

HAPPY SPRINGTIME!!!!
