Currently // v.3

Spring. Mother's Day. Graduation. & Gardening. 

Designing// Graduation cards. We have a handful of youth graduating this weekend, so I'm hoping to develop a fun little card for their gifts. I'd rather not buy them (as they are so stinkin' expensive!) and I want them to have a bit of mine and Adam's personality. We'll see how that goes.

Enjoying// The wonderfully warm weather. I spent as much time as I could outside this weekend because it was BEAUTIFUL. Spring, please stick around for a while, would you?

Ordering// Mother's Day gifts. Being on the other side of the country makes holidays like Mother's Day a little more difficult. Adam and I can't be there to celebrate with our amazing moms, but we can send them a little something in our stead. I'm actually really excited about what I got my mom, I really think she'll love it! ...and I may have been severely tempted to buy one for myself. Sadly, I can't tell you what it is just in case she reads this. Hi, mom! Love you :)

Celebrating// The successful making and planting of our very first vegetable garden! Adam spent his whole day off building us some raised garden beds and trucking in dirt to fill them. Then yesterday, we went home a tad early to place the veggie plants we bought into their new homes. I am so excited to see them start growing! Confession, we may have gone a bit overboard for our first year. We've got two different types of tomatoes, three different peppers, carrots, green beans, spinach, lettuce, cilantro, and basil. Ah! I can't wait to have some fresh produce right from our own backyard!

Tasting// (not yet, but) Graduation party food. Okay, up here people go nuts on graduation parties. Parents will refurnish their houses, and redo their garages, order caterers, and a whole bunch of other nonsense. It's a wee bit crazy. However, it's great for party goers! We went to a few last year, and the food is excellent! It doesn't matter what they serve, it's great! But then again, thats also the norm up here...people always have tons of good food. Anyway, I'm stoked for our first round of graduation parties this weekend. Of course, I'm mostly looking forward to celebrating the successes of our students...but I'm pretty excited about the food too :)

  1. A first garden - how exciting! I truly have a black thumb, but we've at least been able to do some tomatoes and cucumbers successfully in the past couple of years. It's so great to just go out in the back yard to pick out a few things to make a fresh salad! Thanks for linking up :)

  2. I haven't had much luck with houseplants in the past. However, my mom and grandmother have the greenest thumbs imaginable, so I'm really hoping some of their skill might wear off on me sometime soon :)
