For some reason with this lovely weather that we're having I think that we need one more dose of green.

Random side note: Are you all glad that Mad Men has finally returned? I love that show and I looovve Don Draper, he's such a fox. My husband thinks that means that I also like John Hamm, which it doesn't. That totally makes sense doesn't it? I'm not sure guys get that...

Green Spaces

I've decided not to bore you with recipes for Stout Floats or green dresses instead my ode to St. Patrick's Day this year will be green spaces that are calling my name.

Happy {early}St. Patrick's Day!

Smell Good Solution

When you have sick people in your house you have lots of icky germs. When you have icky germs in your house you have to use icky, chemically smelly cleaners. One thing I really, really can't stand are strong, artificial or chemical scents, so using these products en masse is hard for me. Thankfully Pinterest came to my rescue with this delicious smelling solution (along with some open windows and fresh air). All you need is water, lemon, vanilla and rosemary. I'll let you in on a little secret too, there was no fresh to be found at my normal source (my parents) or the groc so I was desperate and used dried and it still did the trick. I can only imagine how good it smells with fresh rosemary.

You must try! Thanks Morgan for sharing this gem!

I have a slight magazine hoarding problem. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

Play Outside

The weather in Arizona right now is heavenly. Warm sunny days filled with the scent of orange blossoms, nothing beats it.

Things are turning around here thank goodness. Yesterday the kids had the day off so we went to a spring training game. Talk about relaxing, I could get used to that.

The cutest collab evah!! Diane, you're brills for hitting us with your adorable looks for kids. Get them while they're young, good thinking. 

While we all reminisce about our Garanimals our kids will be chatting with their friends about their baby DVF gear. For the record I would like the first look in my size please.

Sorry for the absence but it's been a crazy time and my head is finally starting to feel like it's not going to explode. What started as a busy week turned into a nightmarish stint with my husband in the hospital. There isn't much to say except I'm thankful for all I have and that my husband is home. 

So if posting is light for the next little bit please bear with me because I'm just doing all I can to keep my head above water. Thanks friends.
