Bring on Spring!

Do I care that my car said it was –12 degrees Wednesday morning when I left for work?
Do I care that I can’t get a decent picture because of the sun reflecting off the snow and through my windows?
Do I care that we are a few inches away from a snowfall record here in central Iowa?
Do I care that we have had 11 snow days, and too many late starts/early dismissals to count?
Do I care that it’s not even March yet?

No!  It’s time for spring!
I love these tulips and sweet little birds.  My friend Katie H. and I went to Michaels last Saturday and picked out some spring accessories.

And, they were half off!

On my way to Michael’s, Adam and I stopped at JB Knacker.  They were having a great sale, and we got a red box for Adam’s room, a porch post for a project I’m working on, and these cute little nests for $1.50 each!
Those cute little pedestals are actually the Adam-sized bowls that came with my dishes.  We actually use them way more than I thought we would, but they work great for these adorable nests, too!
The eggs are from Michael’s, too. $5 for a bag full!  I need some more, but I don’t have time to drive all the way there to get them. :(

I had trouble getting those three to stay still, so I stuck a little double sided tape on the bottom!

Now, if we think it, and wish, it will come true, right?  Bring on spring!
