Plant – I’m officially getting the spring itch. Anyone else? I noticed online that some folks in certain areas of the country are already mowing their lawns and planting flowers. I’m jealous. We just got four inches of snow this weekend with more expected today. I’m thinking winter may not end this year. Anyway, I’m happy to report that my hen and chick wall planter looks like it may have survived the winter. I’m thrilled! I can’t wait to see if it really fills out this year.

Grow – Speaking of plants, I also purchased some more air plants last week. With the success of my other little guys, I was more than happy to get some new ones. I’ll share my purchases later this week.

Watch – On Friday evening my Mom and I went to see Identity Thief. I laughed, I cried. I loved it. Plus, there was a mini-makeover in the movie. I firmly believe that if a movie has a good makeover, I’m guaranteed to love it.

Decorate – This weekend I stumbled upon these two bathrooms (left & right) via Pinterest. How cute, fun, and colorful are they! I especially love the bright bold color above the wainscoting. 

Eat – I managed to whip up a pretty good salad of mixed greens, blackberries, avocado, goat cheese and grilled chicken. Who says eating healthy can’t be delicious?

Bake – Not quite as healthy, but still fabulous and delicious. These Cinnamon-Bun Bites from Martha Stewart look amazing! They also involve yeast, so I may just have to make them for A Year of Yeast next week. What do you think?

Fly – This morning I’m getting on a plane and heading to Chicago for three days. Any folks from Chicago? I’m so excited because I’m meeting with folks at Kraft / Cracker Barrel. We will be touring, eating, and drinking all over the city. I have a feeling it’s going to be a magical three days. A gastronomical dream. Even if I do come back several pounds heavier. A boy’s gotta do what a boy’s gotta do. Right?

Celebrate – In fact, the party started on Friday when I received a ridiculous amount of cheese, spreaders, and wine. I mean, talk about heaven in a box! 

Hope you had a sunny weekend. What exciting things did you find or do?

    Have a great trip! I’m in Illinois, but about 6 hours south of Chicago! My hubby & I visited Chicago last May and had a wonderful time! We ate at Bill & Giuliana Rancic’s restaurant (RPM Italian.) The restaurant is beautiful & very chic. The food is delicious, but portions are small. If you decide to check it out, be sure to eat a little something before you go!

    Chicago, you’re in my neck of the woods! The air plants are very interesting, I googled them to see how easy they are to grow, as I don’t a green thumb. Enjoy your stay here!

    Have a great time in Chicago. Be sure to get some Garrett’s Popcorn. I love the cheese and caramel corn mix. Love the air plants. Where do you purchase them? Also loved Identity Thief!

    Those bathrooms! So pretty and bright and colorful.

    Have a fun time in Chicago — I’ll be envying you as I get my wisdom teeth out this week. Eat some cheese for me too!
