I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

BEST OF THE WEEKEND 3.24.17






Hi, Ho!
Welcome to Best of the Weekend!
I'm happy to report that last week's snow is almost melted,
but there is still a chill in the air.
Speaking of chill, that's exactly what we're going to do this weekend.
Not a thing is on the calendar, which I'm happy about,
because after this, we've got a busy April, May and June,
with college visits, Passover, birthdays, galas, weddings, 
 and Junior Goo Shoe's graduation    
Summer is going to come pretty quickly, I suspect!

  
Are you ready for some inspiration? Let's party!





We'd appreciate it if you'd follow your co-hosts!

HELLO, SPRING BLOG TOUR: SPRING IS HERE...OR IS IT?



Hello, Spring Blog Tour | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes


Does the weather feel anything like spring in your neck of the woods?

Here in NJ, the ground is still covered in snow,
 the temperatures are chilly enough to demand a down jacket and scarf,
and no tulips are in sight, 
other than my own two lips, chapped from cold weather.

This is no different from years past, I'm well-aware.
It's not unusual for March to go out like a lamb some time in April.

Every year, to hold me over until Mother Nature delivers the real deal,
 I bring a little bit of spring indoors.

Hyacinths add some life to the bedroom....

Daffodils brighten up the kitchen.....

I have to be content with using faux forsythia......

 in the powder room......

until the real forsythia begins to bloom.

the trees to begin to bloom......

It will take another month, at least, until it's warm enough.......

to plant some pansies.....

BEST OF THE WEEKEND...AND...MY BLOG ANNIVERSARY!






Happy Friday, everyone!
Welcome to Best of the Weekend!
First and foremost, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I hope that in some way, the luck o' the Irish rubbed off on you today.
It just occurred to me that I am celebrating four years of blogging!
When I first started my blog, 
I never thought anyone would know it existed, let alone, read it,
so thank you from the top, middle and bottom of my heart
for stopping by to visit every now and then!
💙💚💛💜 

Before we start the party, one last piece of business.
Next week, I'm participating in the Hello, Spring Blog Tour,
hosted by Katie of Let's Add Sprinkles.
Fifteen blogs will share their takes on spring, 
so please be sure to visit us between March 20 and 23.
My day is Tuesday, the 21st!


Okay, now we are ready to party!
