The Spring Thing

Aaron and inch worm

I think we are in the clear. It is mid-May, so I will go out on a limb and say we probably are done with the cold weather.

We have all seen the temperamental nature of Mother Nature this past year so I could always be wrong. Quick! Enjoy it while you can. In Georgia Spring lasts for about three weeks (if you are lucky). This is why weekends in the month of May are crammed with beer festivals, art festivals, festival festivals!

Days like these put me in the mood for spring cleaning, welcoming back my warm weather uniform of ballet flats and full skirts, and spending evenings on the patio. What about you? You only have days before the sweatbox switch is turned on and we are searching for the nearest air conditioned oasis.

Get outdoors. Catch some fresh air, a few rays, and maybe a bug or two.

Spring! Wonderful Spring!

Although the sun is in the sky, snow is forecasted for later on this week. Really Mother Nature? I am ready for a wee bit warmer temperatures. Not only do I annually like the sweet smell of spring, I can now fit into my pre-preggers clothing which is so nice. It is like I have a whole new wardrobe.

As I looked through latest Real Simple magazine I saw an ad for Talbot’s with an adorable blouse. I used to think that this place was strictly old lady and cast it off as another shop I waited outside of while my mom shopped their fashions. About two years ago I realized I was wrong when we visited their clearance center and I fell in love with a sweet white cotton embroidered skirt of theirs. I am a sucker for a cute a-line or full skirt. This spring they have an amazing collection of clothing that is all my style! Full skirts, slim cardigans/pull over sweaters and beige and blue! Upon visiting their webpage I fell in love with this skirt…

I deemed it something I must see in real life at the store. I hate it when something looks cute until you see it in person and it looks like it came from Ross(how I HATE that place). So after visiting Aaron’s doctor I stopped by the Talbot’s on Peachtree and fell in love with it. After trying it on and getting that awesome Audrey Hepburn feeling(that means that it is just my style and will never go out of style) I got it. It will be a welcomed addition to my skirt collection that I rely on heavily every season. Really like these shoes but the price is an ouchy! While I am a huge fan of kitten heel slingbacks and flats I really cannot pay $129.00 for them.

I’m off to iron freshly unpacked clothes and pray for a change in this 20 degree forecast!

Come On Already!

Could the weather be consistently warm here please??? We all need to be out on patios enjoying caipirinhas and soaking up the sun. Instead I am inside listening to The Killers and Everclear, quintessential summer tunes in my opinion, with a sweater on. It is has been mostly grey all day today. Oh wait….what is that. Sun, yes the sun is coming out! It is 5:58 PM but the sun is finally coming out. Trying its hardest to burn its way through these clouds. Hopefully it is not a temporary fluke.
It is April already! Let’s get this spring started. And by that I do not mean tornados and storms!
