spring has finally sprung!

bird in box
Finally a beautiful spring weekend!  I did a little bit of everything, I shopped, I created, I decorated, I cleaned, I played with one of my baby pies and I got the bear stuff out and ready to start!  
I ran to walmart yesterday morning and bought this little water table for my baby pies.  Though Marlaina did not come over, Torry did.   I cant wait to see them playing together with it. 
I had lots of window open and the front door open.  I took figgy and frannie out on their leashes and they were in heaven!  I raked a little bit around the back of the house and hubby mowed... so much yard work to be done though.  And, believe me when I say.. that is NOT my cup of tea!
Anyways.. thats about that for the weekend.  and.. I stuck to my points all weekend!  woohoo!   fingers crossed Im down at least a pound at weight watchers tomorrow night.  I really have to step it up and get walking and riding my bike.  I was gonna go riding yesterday, but I didnt get to it. Its supposed to be nice all week (after today)  today its supposed to rain.  So I plan on walking and riding everyday!

hey.. do you like my little birdie in the terrarium? a client gave me a coupon for 20.00 off at Kohls, so I went in looking for a pair of shoes.. (which I still havent found any I really love ..) then I saw this little terrarium thingy, It was already on sale for 32.00 so with the 20.00 off, I only paid about 12.00 for it!  couldnt wait to get it home and put stuff in it!  such fun to play!  And of course miss bird needed to have a little garland.  I think Im going to make her a little sign that says, HOME TWEET HOME! 
happy day every one!  gotta go get ready for work...(blaahhhh!)

I'm glad you had a fantastic weekend. It always helps Monday feel better knowing the weekend was a good one. I'm sure your grandbabies are going to love playing together with the water table. How fun. Your terrarium is fantastic. What a great deal. Love all your special touches inside too. Miss Bird has quite the special dwelling. Enjoy the week ahead. Bring on more spring weather!!

Have a great week!

Now I wish I had kept my sat in my storeroom for years and I finally gave it to the thrift store. Now I have a blog and see what others are doing, I could have been doing so much more creative things with it. Ohhhh, the regrets! lol!

Oh darn, it's Monday and us working girls have to go back to the factory!
I had a fabulous weekend too Viv, I puttered all day Saturday and just relaxed. I watched the movie The Shell Seekers and I sat and talked to a son for two hours. Yesterday we got in the car and off we went out and about looking for treasure. I've posted some photo's on facebook, color my world happy.
Happy week ahead regardless of hard work, the weekend is coming!
