You know what the last week has been like?
Beautiful temps for this time of year in these parts-- and we've tried to live it up by basically living outside.
Lotsa this. We are croquet nerds. NERDS, I tell you.
Whatever "this" is. ("The hat? The tricycle???")
And lots a this.
I just knew we simply had to have a long jump rope for summer.
Do you realize what awesome exercise jumping rope is? I do. . . now.
Mothers, if you're anything like me, go ahead and go potty before jumping. Empty that bladder. Just in case.
Know what I'm sayin'?
And just general, warm weather frolicking--
Sigh. It's one of those moments where everything seems kinda perfect-like.
Anywho, I know you're going to have a heart attack and die from this surprise,
but I actually changed up my mantel in honor of this awesome season. I know, I usually leave it until fall, so. . .
it's an Easter miracle!!!
I wanted a little fence on my mantel, like the one I saw here. (pssst: hers is cuter than mine. Just being honest.)
Coulda totally made this with some furring strip scraps in thee ole gay-rage, but I went the lazy route and picked one up at Lowe's.
And then I painted it "happy" blue and stamped it.
After which, I made some paper pinwheels, and since I don't have cute diddily-doodilys (although I could have gone to the Hob Lob to the "Diddily-Doodily" aisle), I used pennies for the center.
Threw some crap I had around the house to mix with my new crap,
and I have a happy mantel. Now I believe I have jinxed myself and it will snow 2 feet by tomorrow morning.
