birthday stuff.

Tuesday, May 17th. One of my favorite days of the year. Why? Cuz I turned 21! It was a pretty awesome day. Evan took off of work, and he took me to a local nursery, and I got to pick out some beautiful flowers! I brought them home and hung them up right on our porch. They look wonderful!

 Then the wonderful hubs made this cake for me. His first time making a cake, I felt so special.
We went out for a romantic dinner, and I ordered my first cocktail :) It was such a perfect day.

Lovely Surprises

So, I think I told you that my grandparents are moving in with my parents. Well, that is officially happening next week. My grandmother is kind of a hoarder, not in the so-awful-you-can't-even-walk-on-the-floor kind of way. Just that every nook and cranny in the closets and spare bedrooms are full of stuff that they don't use. She just doesn't want to throw things away that aren't completely useless. Anyway, my mom and dad have been packing up their house little by little and bringing it load by load to their house. My grandmother has been very good about dispersing her things among all her grandchildren. I have gotten the pick of the litter because it's my parents that are packing all the stuff. All this to say... I just acquired the most beautiful set of flatware. It's amazing. And perfectly silver. And now I'll show you some pictures. :)

I can't believe this price tag! I can't find a year anywhere on it, but I'm going to do some research...

Happy Tuesday to you.

Spring Is In The Air. Finally.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. I took a walk, planted some flowers, and Evan and I took a bike ride when he got home. I was going to mow the lawn, buuuuut the mower was out of gas, and we haven't gotten any more for the season, so i didn't. But I will get there eventually. Even though we live in a trailer, we have a big lawn. There a big square out back, and a big square out front as well. It seriously takes me like two hours to mow it. I took some pictures of the beautiful tulips that are blossoming right under my kitchen windows. :)

 And here's our awesome hammock that we got for Christmas, and were just able to put up, and enjoy!

Happy Friday <3

Birthday Month!

I love, love, love May.
Why, you ask?
#1. This wonderful month contains my birthday. (Which happens to be a pretty important one this year, 21!)
#2. Spring really starts to spring! The tulips under my kitchen window make me giddy.
#3. Spring lines start appearing on mannequins, which are a welcome break to layered winter clothes.
#4. M.A.Y. are my niece's initials.

It's just a wonderful month.

What should I ask for for my birthday? I can't think of anything and Evan keeps hounding me!

Sunny Saturday

Yesterday was a breath of fresh air. It was sunny and cool, like a perfect spring day. Evan and I woke up late, went out for breakfast, came home and took our dog for a walk. Then we went for a bike ride because I was dying to try out my new cycling shorts. We rode around for awhile. It was so nice just to be outside, soaking up the golden rays. So, a few weeks ago Evan bought a Mini-14 Ruger. A rifle. He took it to a shooting range a couple times, and finally yesterday I got up the courage to go with him and shoot it. I will just leave you with a few pictures from yesterday.

Happy Sunday:)

The sunny (finally) weather has me daydreaming about romantic summer picnics. Packing a basket, feeding each other strawberries, and hanging with Evan under a blaring sun sounds like the most wonderful thing.

What are you dreaming of these spring days?

Happy Hump Day :)

Rain & Sun

The weather around here has been super un-predictable. We had snow early in April, and since then it has been nonstop rain! Yesterday, we had a breakthrough of some sun and Evan and I biked ten miles! I was in pain during the biking, but after I felt so good! I was glad that I had planned dinner ahead, or else I would definitely not have had enough energy to figure out a meal. This morning was also pretty nice, and I had some errands to run so I rode my bike downtown instead of driving. It's a nice way to conserve, and it's good for me!
This is my bike. My awesome bike. That Evan bought for me. And I love it.

This little robin decided to camp out in our front yard, so I took some pictures of him.

Have a wonderful Tuesday<3
