Spring Has Sprung

Spring is in the air!
Chad and I spent our entire weekend working in the yard. It’s not the best job in the world, but with temperatures in the eighties, you just can’t stay inside! Plus, we have so much to do!
We painted the fence, uprooted all of the weeds in our backyard, mulched, and planted flowers.
It was hard work, and I have to admit, I’m mighty sore today.
But it sure looks pretty!

Sore legs aside, I’m always in a good mood when the weather is nice. There is just something about the sun shining that puts a little spring in my step.
Not to mention, today is the first day I’ve been able to wear open toed shoes in over 4 months!
I found these little gems a few weeks ago, and have been looking for a chance to wear them!
I hope you all get a little taste of Spring soon, if you aren’t already!

With Spring weather just around the corner (and by that, i mean tomorrow!) I am once again perusing the internet and filling up my online baskets like money just grows on trees.  What is it about online “window” shopping that just fills up a girls heart?  There’s something about clicking “add to basket” one by one, until you have more than your closet could fill.
And then just shut your computer.
It’s a hard reality, ladies.

But with Spring warming my cold, winter bones…my eyes are open to all of the beautiful colors popping up everywhere. I can’t wait to dip my toes into the pool of short sleeves, maxi dresses, midi skirts and casual tennies.

I put together a teeny tiny wish list of a few of my current favorites!
Now go enjoy your day, and fill up a basket or two!

Eat A Lot. Sleep A Lot.

Well, it’s definitely been a minute! Or two!
I have definitely enjoyed sleeping in the past few weeks, but those days need to end!
I need to get back into my blogging game.  There is something about the promise of warm weather that keeps me going. I am definitely a sunshine girl. I don’t like dragging myself out of the bed in the morning to curl my hair and put on layers upon layers and try to feel “cute”. I think that’s only fun up until Christmas. After that? Bring it on, Spring!

This past weekend, Texas dipped back into the winter weather, and it was just dreary and cold. Not my favorite. Chad and I tried to make the best of it, though. We visited a local nursery and spent a few hours trying to decide what plants, trees and other flowers & foliage we wanted for our yard! We have sketched out a few different things, and I’m really excited to get started on it.
Our yard is sort of a mess right now, as the previous tenant was such a wonderful gardener…but after her death, the house stood vacant for three years. So our yard is overgrown and needing lots of love. We have big plans, though! First things first?  Painting our ugly brown fence white! We finished the first coat yesterday, and I’m already giddy with excitement. We have big plans of trailing (yummy smelling) jasmine, orange and lemon trees and a backyard patio.
I just like to dream and not actually do the work!
It’s time to get busy, though!

And! To top it off? The exterior of our house will be painted next week! I have been mulling over paint color options, and I think we finally have something picked out! I cannot wait to get rid of the ugly tans and browns. Our house needs a little pick me up!

We have a lot of work in store for us, that’s for sure!
So my “eat a lot, sleep a lot” winter mantra is coming to a close.
Time to get into the “Spring” mood and get to work!

Oh, Sweet Joy Reversible Headwraps!

I’ve been working really hard on playing the disappearing act this week!  Chad has been in Romania since last Friday, so I have been enjoying waking up and running and not having to worry about doing my hair or getting dressed up.

Speaking of hair! I had so much fun collaborating with Kim from Oh, Sweet Joy! to make a fun video for her incredibly cute new reversible head wraps! Which, honestly, are the best wraps around. There are so many ways to style these (as seen in the video) and the best part is that it’s so easy to do! Not to mention, the wraps being reversible adds a fun little twist!
I have thrown mine on after a run (for a quick stop at Target or other Saturday errands) and even with a cute outfit.
They are so versatile, which is nice because spicing up my top knot is a major plus with this lady!

Go check out Kim’s blog for more information and, of course, to shop around a little! She has so many great products! AND! Riffraff just released Oh, Sweet Joy’s new ampersand dress!  Two of my favorites, collaborating!

The video was super fun, and I hope you enjoy it!
