birthdays, spring cleaning and Easter
These past few days have a been a nice break from a hectic schedule. This is the busiest time of the year for me with school stuff. I cannot wait until May and summer break when I have short work weeks.
Anyhow I made some very cute cupcakes last night for Easter today. I'll post them later. I got the idea awhile ago somewhere online and happened to come across the right ingredients while shopping for Easter candy on Friday. They are super cute. I'm bringing some over to my Mom's today where we are having dinner in awhile.
Yesterday I was able to put away my winter sweaters. SpaceBags are magic! I was able to fit them under my bed. That way I wont' have to store them in my parent's shed which isn't the best spot to store clothes. But it works in a pinch. Today when we go over there for dinner I'm planning on taking the rest of my Spring/Summer clothes out of the shed. It is almost like shopping when I take them out of storage. I forget some of the things I have so it's a treat. On Thursday I picked up a few new cute Spring things at NY & Co. which was had everything in the store 50% off! What a deal. Not the best quality stuff but at that price I found some nice things. Now with sweaters away and Spring clothes out...Murphy's Law....it will snow :) But in all seriousness I think we are probably out of the woods in terms of winter. We'll still have cool weather but probably not snow. Though it has happened. In college I remember an April Fool's Day snowstorm.
Hopefully the weather will continue looking up. I cleaned out my flower pots on the balcony and prepped them for new flowers. I cannot wait! But I will hold off for a bit until I can plant petunias and other flowers I love having. I might try tomatos again and possibly peppers. I would like to find one other veggie to plant in a container as well. We'll see! I love Spring...
