I hope I would never look a gift horse in the mouth. That's why I am not complaining about the lovely spring weather we are having UNLIKE some people. I had my hair highlighted refreshed yesterday and my stylist has a huge clientele that stop in for a wash and blow out weekly, which means the place is always packed and always full of gossip. There is never getting around that I have my hair made more blonde because I always see someone I know in the salon. Yesterday's "salon gossip" was the weather and the number of women complaining about the weather was amazing. Tomorrow is supposed to be a record-setting 80+ degrees and half the women in the salon were totally pissed off about it because they believe it means we are in for one hot summer.

I for one am pleased as punch. Eighty degrees in March? I'll take it and the lovely sunshine that comes with it. If it means a hot, hot summer, I'll take it too. I believe these same women were the ones complaining that we would have a super-cold winter after we got snow on Halloween weekend. Didn't happen. Never look a gift horse in the mouth. Enjoy it while you can!

I'll even take the spring allergies (made easier by Allegra D). But this little guy is not liking the allergies so much. We recovered from the bronchitis/pneumonia episodes, twice.  His 2012 has been spent with a constant cough and runny nose. The humidifier may never leave his room.
Oliver relaxing on the couch sporting a crusty, runny nose. He's pretty grouchy today, so he's watching cartoons and being comforted by my charging iPhone.

Oliver also fell again on the playground at pre-school yesterday and has a large knot on his forehead. We may never have Easter pictures this year unless he learns to slow down!

Spring also means changing up the decor. I'm eager to work in the yard, but know that because it is warm doesn't mean that we can't have a frost still. The spring plantings will have to wait another couple of weeks. In the meantime, I made a new wreath, completely snagged the idea off Pinterest.
Super-easy and I think it's super-cute.
