Spring is Here!

I am so excited that Spring is here! There is just something about Spring that gives me this warm, fuzzy feeling inside. It just puts a huge smile on my face and makes me want to run down a hill! Okay, I know that was random....but truly, it puts me in a mood to do something random and spontaneous, like run down a grassy! :D
With the coming of Spring my husband and I already have so many plans laid out for us already. We are helping my sister-in-law and brother-in-law move from Charlotte to Atlanta. They are sad to be leaving Charlotte (I'm sad too), but due to his job going to Mexico, he has taken a new job in Atlanta. I'm excited for them to be together again because they have had to live apart for a few weeks while he lived in a hotel near his new job. I can't imagine having to be away from my husband that long. I know they cried every weekend when he had to go back to ATL. They have a sweet home for sale in Charlotte, great for a starter family, completely renovated that they really need to sale. (If you are interested, e-mail me and I'll get you the hook-up :D ).

Next weekend we are working to help my grandmother move. Indeed, she is selling her recently purchased (3 years) home and moving to a home more out in the country. The saying is true, "You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl." :D

She is wonderful and is so excited to move and to be able to "go fishing anytime I want to and go outside without the neighbors staring at me." Ask anyone who knows her, she is not one for settling down anytime soon. :D

But God is good and I am so excited for what this Spring has in store for me and my household. We are happy, happy, HAPPY and enjoying God's rich blessings while keeping Him first in our marriage and home.

What are your plans for this Spring? What can't you wait to do first?

I'm ready for some spray-painting action!!!

So.....I won!!!

Whoo hoo!!! I'm so excited! As MOST of you know, I'm a newly-wed, another WHOO HOO! I love being married, and that means I love fulfilling my God-given duties....feeding my sweet husband!

Another blogging friend posted on her blog about Kendra's "My First Kitchen" spice giveaway when you participate in her survey. I participated, and I won!!! YAY!

Below is a picture of what I have won! I am so excited and so is my husband. He said, "So we NEVER have to by taco seasoning again?!?!" Well, at least not for a little!

Thanks Kendra for making my week.....and teaching me lots of things about cooking!!

Oh, and apparently she sells these, so you can purchase them at a very reasonable price!! YAY!

St. Patrick...a Saint, but not Catholic.

Read about it here. You may find it very surprising.
