Spring is giving us a few little teases every now and again here in Iowa. Its a little funny, last year when I was pregnant all I wanted was some snow. We only had a super-mild, mostly snowless winter. This year, I enjoyed the snow but I am ready to be done with it and get outside! The weather has just been back and forth so much lately, I want to open up the house and keep it that way!
Happenings since my last post, it snowed and we went outside for a bit (aka a few minutes because we got all wet and snowy):
Imogen loved it, I was not so keen on the whole snow-in-my-shoes thing.
I turned 26 earlier this month and was super spoiled with video games, a new camera, lots of tasty foods, a new moveable island for the kitchen/dining room, and lots of friends and family. 26, I guess I’m really an adult now right? Riiiiight.
We ordered from Wallace Farms for the first time, our first pick-up is tomorrow, I’ll write more about it at a later date.
This weekend was supposed to be nice, and indeed Friday was lovely. Saturday? Nope, we were back to the 30s and a bitter breeze. We still ventured outside to de-poop the yard (ugh, dogs) and put together the last of Imogen’s birthday presents:
Phooka and Cinder got in on the action too:
And Imogen very quickly figured out how to use the slide by scooting down it backwards on her tummy:
Despite the fact it was chilly out Imy seemed to enjoy herself:
I am eager for warmer weather. I long for days when I don’t have to worry about sand, salt, and snow being tracked into the house (bleh!) and days where two dogs, 2 cats, a baby and a mama aren’t cooped up indoors for days. And summer clothes! Oh, summer clothes and not having to get all bundled up just to go to the store. And I absolutely cannot wait to open the house up for some all-day fresh air, there is just something about a breeze through the windows that feels absolutely amazing. And running, I am so excited to get back to it.
Until the weather decides to make up its mind I’ll be snuggled up indoors with the baby, working on putting the house back together (yeah, its still in quite a state after the kitchen renovation), working on my medical transcription studies, and crocheting to my heart’s content.
Hurry up spring!
