Friend Makin' Monday!

I am participating at Friend Makin' Monday over at ae filkins blog! Head on over there to join! Here are my answers to this week's Friend Makin' Monday!

1. Favorite things about Spring: The WARM weather! Flip flops, grilling out, yard games, hiking, biking, and sunshine!!

2. What I'm doing for Spring Break: Sadly, I do not get a spring break, but that's okay, maybe next year!

3. Favorite Spring flower: Hydrangeas, I think they are gorgeous!

4. Do you have a garden?

We dug a garden in our backyard last spring. The snow just melted here last week, so I will be starting my seeds inside (hopefully this week) and transplanting them once the ground is completely thawed.

5. If so, what do you grow.

All sorts of stuff! I don't exactly have a green thumb...but last year I grew one (lol) really big pumpkin, some herbs, beans, cucumbers, and flowers. I am going to try again this summer for a more successful turnout!

6. Do you do Spring cleaning? This is my first spring in our house after a winter (we moved in last April 1st). But yes, I have started spring cleaning! I have one bathroom done and the dining room. Now onto the entire rest of the house....

7. What is your weather *really* like right now? {Just b/c it's "officially" spring, doesn't mean that it feels like it for some of you}
It's okay...in the 50's today, which I think is really warm! Flip flops and no jacket for me! (for those of you in the dark, I live in Minnesota, so yes, 55 degrees is warm!) Nothing blooming or green yet, but the sun is shining, so I can't complain!

8. Snapped any weather related photos lately? Share one with us!

This was Sunday afternoon, checking out the new Minnesota Twin's baseball field. My hubby got us a 20-game season ticket package for my birthday and we got to be some of the first people to check out the stadium and got to see the view from our seats! It was very nice out that day, hopefully it will stay this nice for when we sit there for 3 hours watching the games!

9. What's your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon? Be outdoors! Walk the dogs, hike, bike, grill, I looooove fishing, and even staying inside crafting is fun with all the sunshine coming through my windows!!

10. Favorite TV show right now? I am a sucker for American Idol, Law and Order:SVU, and Criminal Minds. Under Cover Boss is usually pretty good too. But starting in two weeks, I will be watching the Twin's!

Happy Spring!



  1. I love the hydrangas. They always remind me of my Grandfather. He loved gardening. How cool that you get to see the TWINS play so often. Nice meeting you.

  2. Oh, Minnesota! Lovely. My hubby grew up there and I lived there most of my life till we moved to the southwest 4 years ago. We still visit as my inlaws live there. (IKEA is my fav!) Thanks for commenting at my blog! I'm hoping to actually work on that light fixture/faux capiz thing while my hubby is out of town this wekeend. I love your crafty ideas and that steal of a deal carpet!
