Spring Decor in a Snow Storm

Greetings!  Snowy days really keep me from seizing the day!  H and I stayed in our PJs until about 9.  We hand-delivered a birthday invitation to a neighbor and then set off for two of H’s fave stores, Hobby Lobby & Wal-Mart.  🙂  He was actually pretty chatty and pleasant despite my meanderings around and around Hobby Lobby.  I got some arts and crafts supplies for our impending snow days plus a party supply for his birthday coming up in less than two weeks!  Here are some of the sights at Hobby Lobby…

Don’t you just love all the motivational signs there?!?!?!  So many good sayings!


I mean, REALLY?!?!?!  Lots of 4th of July stuff!


Say “Hobby Lobby!”


This boy has so much energy!  We’re definitely going to have a late afternoon workout/dance party for him!

After Hobby Lobby, I stocked up on some supplies including party food {buying in advance for H’s two birthday parties, family & friends} and a funny lunch with friends.  I’m hoping this snow doesn’t keep us totally house-bound.  M

My dad stopped by for lunch since he was in the area for a doctor’s appointment.  We don’t like anyone to have to take a day and spend it at the doctor, but we were glad to see him and enjoy a simple lunch together.  We tried Amy’s Organic Cream of Tomato soup for the first time.  I thought it was pretty good!  Here’s my dad having a little “tent time” with H.  He’ll trick you into getting in the tent and then spring about a million books on you.  “Read this one!” he says.


Despite all the chilly, snowy winter weather, it is spring inside.  I put out our Easter decor {I kind of skip St. Patrick’s Day, not my favorite holiday} and added some fresh flowers from Trader Joe’s for just $3.99.   The crosses are a new addition this year.  I found them on zulily.

The sweet bowls and mug were the Mr.’s when he was little.  I’m looking forward to using them with Holden this year.

How are you making your days seem “springy?”

If your in my area, do you think this will be the last snowstorm of this winter?

Have a great day!
