Early Spring/Easter Preparations

Can you believe that the spring forward time change is less than two weeks away!?

Oh spring weather.. where are you?? Today is yet another day stuck in the 30s. I forgot to wear my hat/gloves for the dogs afternoon walk today and it was chill-ee!

However, in an effort to brighten up my surroundings and act like spring really is just around the corner, I stopped by K. Roger on my way home from work and picked up some of these lovely flowers:

Oh.. and that little sheep? Shh… that’s Sheff’s present from the Easter Bunny, he dropped it off a little early this year. I just have to find a way to keep it under wraps for another month. Don’t tell him!

Bringing out my inner Martha…

In the April 2009 Country Living magazine, they show how to make your own Easter Wreath using candy almonds, a hot glue gun and a foam wreath form. Sounds easy and fun!

I stopped by Hobby Lobby, picked up a hot glue gun, foam wreath, Easter dog gifts, but was unable to find any candy almonds. Not at Hobby Lobby, nor Target or K. Roger’s. I looked through the extensive Easter candy selection, and found many a pastel egg (reese’s, marshmallow, hershey chocolate, malted chocolate, or cadbury eggs, but no candy almonds!)

I’m afraid of using other egg-shaped Easter candy in case they melt when coming in contact with my weapon of choice (hot glue gun).

Any ideas where I can find these Jordan Almonds?!

Checking in with March’s Healthy Living Challenge :)

I’ve been wearing my pedometer every day this week and motivating my co-workers to sign up for our spring pedometer challenge. So far I’ve been racking up 6,000 – 8,000 steps a day, which isn’t too bad.

The water drinking has been going well, especially at work when the water bottle sits at my desk and stares at me. At home, not as well… I just need to remember to keep a glass with me all the time.

And.. I finally made it back to the gym yesterday! Ta-da!! Nothing crazy – a quick in and out 30 minute workout, but I’ll be back tomorrow, and then hiking this weekend!

  1. um, its MARCH and you still have Christmas cling-ons on the kitchen window….

  2. I love the mason jar as a vase – actually I think mason jars just make great decoration pieces for just about anything.

  3. […] I spent the afternoon earlier this week on my Easter Wreath project. […]
