Dandelions - a happy, silly flower.
Every year I get Spring fever. It’s tough where I live because it warms up S …………….. O …………… S ……….. L ………… O …………… W ………….. L ………… Y. Even though it was only in the 30s here this week it was very sunny and the snow was melting. I got ambitious. One day I opened windows just to let the fresh air in. It felt so good. Another day I put my winter gloves on and hung towels on the clothesline. I started puttering around outside, getting the flowerbed ready (HA – it will be a while still) and cleaning up the yard. I am definitely ready for Spring.

Some great reads from this week. Enjoy your weekend everyone :)

Saving Money – An American Virtue Reborn from Debt Free Adventure ~ Saving money is the “in” thing now, but it’s by no means a new thing.

Free Printable Recipe Cards from Skip To My Lou ~ This is a seriously awesome tutorial to create recipe cards and print them out.

You’ve Got A Budget, Now What? from Small Notebook ~ A budget is no good if you don’t use it!

Why Go To Bed Early? from Gather Little By Little ~ Don’t knock it till you try it. Stew shares some solid wisdom.

How To Give Your Child An Allowance also from Gather Little By Little ~ What age do you begin? How much? Read what Mike is doing.

Why I do what I do ~ Today I began cutting out the pieces to make Chloe’s Easter dress (more on that soon). I didn’t plan to sew it, just cut out the pieces (the worst part). I was telling Chloe about it. She was so excited. She asked if Easter is tomorrow and if she can have her dress today and if it will have eggs on it. Eggs? Yes, Easter eggs on her Easter dress. Ummm, no.

Nobody can relate to your winter blues better than people from Michigan… and that’s me! :)

My wife and I are DYING for the time change so we have more light in our days… and are dying for warm weather. We are going on a week long vacation in the first week of April that we are SOOO excited about.

Godspeed with Chloe’s Easter dress!
