Signs of Spring!

April 15, 2011 1 comment

Spring is all around us now!

Today is Odyssey Day at the University – the day that all the accepted students and their parents come to visit to see if they’ll decide to go here or not. Like freshly hatched baby chicks, these future freshman scurry about campus full of excitement and wonder.

Each year, much like spring, it’s a reminder to me of new beginnings and fresh hope.

The signs are also evident to me each day as I leave my house. There are buds on the azalea bushes, blossoms falling from my giant pear tree, and finally this week, two yellow tulips blooming in my flower bed (two out of 12 bulbs planted, but at least there’s SOME color this year!)

Other fun things to prove it’s spring – I went to my sixth Nationals opening day game (I have yet to miss one). I love hometown baseball.

Charles and I had our first outdoor happy hour last week. It got a little chilly, but we couldn’t resist a bacon themed happy hour. We were willing to be a little cold in order to get a seat!

What are your favorite things about spring?


Something Yummy = Brinner!

On Monday, I think my Boyfriend was out to win significant other of the year. On his day off, he picked up my laptop from Microcenter for me, ordered a new screen for my back window (a year in the making) and even got to my house before me and cleaned!

On top of that, he made breakfast for dinner. Perhaps my favorite meal!

On the menu was green eggs (scrambled eggs with spinach and goat cheese), hashbrowns (made from actual potatoes and onion…not from a bag), bacon (topped with honey before it was baked), english muffins with DeeDee’s plum jam, and orange pineapple mimosas. Even a mango for dessert.

And if dinner wasn’t quite enough, he also showed up with flowers!
