It feels like Spring!

Hello loves,
It's a beautiful spring day (okay, technically its still winter, but it feels like a spring day), the birds are singing (actually one of them hit the window a little bit ago. It scared me half to death. Here it is an hour later and the cute little birdie is still sitting on the patio, a bit stunned.), and I'm getting ready to go on a bike ride with Sam. :) I love days like today! They leave you feeling so refreshed and inspired!


So I found this video on Lauren Conrad yesterday, and it is so funny!! Sad, but funny. It starts out slow at first, but just watch.

Okay, it's now several hours later and I just got back to this.

While I was on Lauren Conrad yesterday I saw that she had decorated her headboard on her bed with twinkly lights. I loved the idea and decided that I would do that too. So I carefully set to work unwinding the lights and then slowly winding them around my headboard. (If you've seen my bed then you know this was no easy task.) Anyhow, I get all done and excitedly plug them in. To my dismay over half of them didn't light up! I had no idea how to fix them so I sadly unwound all of the lights and put them away. Oh well, it was worth a try!

So this evening I set down and was listening to songs to send to a friend (for a school project) and I decided I just had to share some of my favorite songs with y'all!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7HFk6flUOQ  How You Live by Point of Grace

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sHScqJ4PnE Mary's Song by Taylor Swift. Of course I love all of Taylor Swift's songs, but this one is especially sweet. :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKCGBv65w_M Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson. Years ago I fell in love with this song and I recently rediscovered it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuuLBPOYcI8 Your Great Name by Natalie Grant. I heard this song a lot today because my sister is choreographing a dance to it for our church's Dinner Theater. I haven't seen it yet, but I think it's going to be amazing!

Also, I've recently uncovered a bunch of old photos because we're in the process of making scrapbooks. (We have at least 15 years worth of photos!) Anyhow, in case you were wondering what I used to look like...

Much love and a hug,
