Tastes of Spring

This weekend we got our official first taste of Spring, and it was glorious. No freezing cold wind blowing us from the car to the door of the house {scrambling with a diaper bag and baby} Gosh that is nice! It feels like it has been forever. Although not as bad as most people, we have had such a cold and wet winter and we are more than happy to bid it farewell. Our weekend was off to an iffy start- we were supposed to go to Raleigh for Stephen's brother's engagement party but we ended up cancelling because our little man was sick all week. No specific thing, just a virus with a nasty temperature at night and major fussiness. Even though he was on the up and up on Friday, we didn't want to chance it. Even when he is sick he will squeeze out a smile for me. Love him! 


Friday night, Stephen's parents watched Weeks for us so we could escape for a dinner out after being cooped up all week with a sick little one. So nice for a break! I just got my hair highlighted last week by my long time favorite stylist in Raleigh and I couldn't be happier. She is the best. It's been almost a year {one YEAR! that is rather ridiculous!} since I have been happy about my hair - post preggo problems...don't even get me started! After extensive amounts spent on shampoo and conditioner, I feel like I am getting somewhere. And, highlights are a girls best friend.


Easy going Saturday night with a new favorite candle burning...


Saturday and Sunday we both did a ton of work outside- moving plants, planting a few new ones, cleaning up the porch, cleaning outdoor furniture cushions...the kind of work that feels good because you know you will enjoy it when you are done. Just one step in prepping for Spring, but we are happy with all we accomplished this weekend. How cute are these chalkboard signs for plants?



Please laugh with me for a second at how hilarious Tucker is in these pictures. I could come up with so many captions for the thoughts running through his head, watching Stephen chop hot-off-the-grill barbecue.



Last but not least, this sweet little guy enjoyed his first bowl of ice cream Sunday night. Why have we not given it to him before? I don't know. He would like to know as well because he loved it! 



Hope your weekend had a peak of Spring too!

We had a taste of Spring on Sunday with temps in the 70s...now there is snow and ice on the ground! I am ready to say goodbye to winter!

Love the pansies!

UGH. It is still SO cold here in Maryland and I'm over it.. but Spring is in 2 weeks so I'm just counting down. Can't be cold forever, right? Baby boy is getting SO big and he's such a heartbreaker! Miss ya! I've been so busy I can't catch up on blogs like I used too:(

Your hair looks fab!!! Who do you go to? When I lived in Raleigh I use to go to the Jolie Day spa in Cameron Village! (Miss Raleigh sometimes for sure!)
