Spring Teaser

What is going on with the weather? We had 70 degree temperatures here. At the end of January. That sky is not a cold winter sky. It is a warm Spring sky.  I'm beginning to wonder exactly what wardrobe I should have in my closet...
Bulky sweaters, jeans and socks
Shorts, T-shirts and flip flops?

I'm so confused.

Here's a cute puppy to look at.

Feel better? I do.
Because the temperatures were so unseasonably warm, we felt obligated to be outside.
We broke out all the great stuff of soon-to-be springtime...

My guy washed his car.  And yes, it did rain the next day (heh heh heh...)
 Look in the background...WE ARE GETTING NEW NEIGHBORS! It's only been, like, forever since we've had neighbors on that side.  They are super nice and we're so excited! I'll introduce them later.  Don't want to scare them off with the crazy lady and the camera bit.

Soccer AND biking in the same day?  Just look at the expression on my oldest's face (the one at the top). It's one of sheer joy and love for her parents, I tell you.  She was really enjoying her time outside. (NOT!)
She's a reader, that one, and her parents would like her to be a little more active in the literal sense of the word instead of just reading about other people being active. 

Moving on...

We  even broke out the golf cart after a looooong winter's nap.  Hmmm...would newbie puppy like the cart?

That's a yawn, folks.  She was less than impressed.  She actually slept on our little journey.

We've got a 3 seater cart.
6 people can ride our cart, maybe more if they're small light people.
Not 6 people like me.
I ate too many of these....

And because of my added girth, our cart almost died on the way to my parents' house.

I wasn't the only reason for the golf cart losing juice...but I'm sure I wasn't helping matters at all!

Time to make use of the good weather and get my girth down a notch or two.

See ya'll tomorrow.


  1. Stacy- You are too funny!! I enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work and keep adding those recipes - - I love to cook! I am still at Mother's Day Out four days a week and keep my 2 little "grand"boys (and they are GRAND!)on Friday. Life is good! You have a beautiful family - - can't get over those 2 girls and how much they've grown!!

    P.S. Are you sure you didn't miss your calling by not being a writer??

  2. I'm soooooooooooooo jealous of your weather. It's 3 degrees here right now and getting colder. We won't have any sign of spring until April.

  3. It WAS such beautiful weather--I wish it could stay like that until May! Glad y'all took advantage with all the outdoor activities. But for goodness sakes, STOP showing pictures of that precious dog. I swear, I'm going to break down and get one (and then I'll be a single mom to 3 boys and a brand new puppy as there is no way Bryan would allow us to get a doggy at this time). That is seriously one adorable puppy!
