the middle of spring break.


The past couple days included (but are not limited to) :

clementines for three dollars and ninety-eight cents.
eating three clementines a day.
and, when taking this picture, noticing how much the snow has melted off our patio. (Just look at that! In January and February, it was completely covered almost to the door handle!)
watching The Fighter.Chad and nephew UJ playing plunking on the piano together. And having a blast.
UJ loving to talk on cell phones and getting my mom's purple cell-phone shaped magnet to talk with.
Beatles marathon on the way to my sister's house to visit my pregnant/bed-rest ridden sista and give her back her son who we had kidnapped at G + G's since Saturday.
Johnny Cash Ring of Fire and Bright Eyes on the way back home. On the same radio station that I talked about here.
monster cookies + diet Sierra Mist.
Rachael Ray magazines.
discussing moving plans and future dreams with mom and sister.
discussing the Walker Bill and how it impacts the teachers in the family. 
soup + sandwiches + shamrock cookies right before Lent service. Every church should do this. It was fabulous.
the March Madness invasion that happens every year. Seriously. I just searched my blog and I posted about MM + us in 2009 and in 2010.
hilarious/unfortunate baby names. Last night we talked about the truly real names in history--Ima Hogg and Harry Baals.
thinking how badly I do not want to go back to school on Monday.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!

It sounds like a blissful Spring Break, the only thing that could make it better is if it would go on for another week.

Sounds like a wonderful week. Clementines are amazing and I eat like five a day. So addictive and good for you. Happy Spring Break to you!

Mmm I love clementines!

I nearly cried tears of joy when my porch no longer had snow on it! Now today it is in the 70s! Goodbye cold, hello nice weather!!

Happy Weekend!

I am obsessed with clementines!

I have REALLY been enjoying watching the huge mountains of snow melt this last week or two. It went from big piles you could barely see around to almost none. Bring on the spring!

Welcome back to reality...boo! :) Oh well, we're closer to summer, right?

Those clementines are delish looking...they're making me starving!

Harry Baals and Imma Pigg are legit? OH my gosh. So sad....and yet hilarious. :) On the subject of terrible names, a friend of mine knows a "Harry Areola".

Thought I'd stop by and say hi! I too love the small and mighty clementine. The perfect little fruit. Enjoy the rest of your spring break.
