Where is Spring???

Today is the first day of spring. Apparently God wants winter to continue :) It has been raining the past couple of days with highs in the 40’s and 50’s. No big deal, spring usually equals rain and that’s pretty close to our average temperatures. But then last night it started snowing, and accumulating, and I hate winter.

This weekend is Easter - cute little outfits that usually don’t have sleeves, and Easter egg hunts. Snow and cold weather do not fit into these plans. Every year we go down to my parents and ride the Easter Bunny train. Some years it’s been hot and we’ve been in tank tops, and others it has been super cold (as it appears it will be this year). We actually get off the train and do an egg hunt, so the cold weather is really a pain!

Hopefully spring is around the corner…I’m ready to be outside and enjoying some sunshine (which at least we do have today…I think…it’s been a while since I’ve seen it so I’m not sure what it looks like :) ).

On a side note, tomorrow is hubby’s birthday. I have one gift already, and it’s a great gift! But, I need another one, and I was all set to get him something and it fell through. There are a couple of problems with this: 1.) my parents are going in on the second gift with me, so if I don’t have a gift, they don’t have a gift and 2.) he’s so difficult to shop for! I always feel bad because he brags about how easy I am to buy things for, but I have such a hard time with him!

Hopefully I’ll think of something today, otherwise, I’m in big trouble!

I was trying to find an Easter outfit for Morgan last night and was aggravated that everything was sleeveless and a dress or capris and a short sleeve shirt. It's WINTER!!

We have no snow, but we've had all the rain and temps in the 30's and 40's the last four days. Same with today. It's rather depressing.

I am HORRIBLE at buying gifts. I try so hard to find the perfect gift and then give up and buy gift cards. Happy gift we get to be filled on it after his birthday?

I hear you on the outfits. I did a post/rant about it the other week. It's really frustrating.

I agree about the Easter dresses.

I was confused this morning too with that light coming through the window!

I was out shopping the other night with one of my friends for her daughter. We so could not find anything warm enough for her. It's pathetic.

So what's the 1st Birthday gift you got for the Hubby? And what is the 2nd gift supposed to be?? My husband is impossible to shop for. To the point that my parents now refuse to buy him anything at all... cuz if it's not the best, he doesn't want it. So he gets nothing. Yup, he screwed himself.

As for the weather... don't get me started. Yesterday they had "Spring Day!" at Emma's preschool. All the teachers were in hula skirts, lei's, & flip flops, and all the kids in sleeveless spring dresses. Stuffed into snowsuits. Lovely.
