I just found your blog earlier in the week. I'm enjoying reading through all of your past posts. :)

LOVE those mugs!!! (I'm a mug person!! ; )

This weekend my husband and I are going to Kansas City (we live about an hour from there) to celebrate my birthday and I'm very excited!! (It's supposed to rain :(, but I'm hoping the weather man is wrong!)

Also, I'm a subscriber via Google Reader ; )

Krystal said...

It'll probably still be cold here in Michigan. I'd love to spend the weekend breaking in my new walking shoes if the sun is out!

Laura said...

I am going to enjoy the Texas Springtime! We're taking our new dog and our daughter to the park by the river for a picnic, and to the bluebonnet fields to take pictures...as well as hitting up the Bluebell Cremery. Icecream and sunshine I can't get any better than that! Happy Spring!

My husband and I are going to his goddaughter's christening. It's supposed to rain but I'm going to cross my fingers. sharonaquilino(at)hotmail(dot)com

Rebekah said...

I love these mugs!

I'm going to be working on a quilt top and making a dent in my ever-growing stack of homework

lritscher said...

I have the best weekend ever planned. My new sofa should arrive on Saturday, so I'll be renting a truck and taking the old one to Goodwill. Then I'm going to make a dump run to drop off some garden waste - it's amazing how those weeds take over, and grab some mulch. Then I'll be picking up some giant plants that a friend is giving me. When I get home I'll spread the mulch and place the plants. That should do it for Saturday.
On Sunday, I plan to tidy the house to a fare-thee-well. I have 5 houseguests coming this next week so the house must be spic and span. With any luck, I'll also have some time to bake for a buddy of mine in the Marines.
Let me know if you want to come help. I'll make a pot of coffee we can drink out of your super-cute mugs! Can you tell I like caffeine?!?

~Tori~ said...

Actually, we are leaving for beautiful Chicago! So excited!! =) And we have been enjoying the nice weather all this week!

I follow your blog!

Also, even though we'll be in Chicago, if I am so privileged as to win, I should have internet access.

Ruth E said...

Hey Priscilla,
My hubby works away from home during the week so the weekends have become a special time for us and because it's forecast to be a sunny weekend I think we'll head to the seaside with the dog for a walk in the sun!

Hope your cleaning goes well!

Rachelle @ "Mommy? I'm Hungry!" said...

We'll be busy with friends at parties/get togethers. Most likely we'll be outside too. :)

Christine Groce said...

I will be packing for a trip to Disney and then to my daughter's house in FL. But, I will try to spend some time outside in the beautiful weather to check out any new sprouts coming up.

Sunnyvale said...

I'm going to bask in the sunshine knowing we still have more cold and rain to come (warm now).

barbara said...

I think the seed packets say it all - "March 20th or later". It rained all night, so everything is too wet to do any planting today, but I'll definitely be doing it tomorrow!

Emily said...

I will be spring cleaning. I've gotten quite a bit done this week, now I just have to dust and organize. YUCK!

Have a happy Spring!!!!!

Emily said...

Not sure what the weather's supposed to be like this weekend. If its nice I might put up my mailbox post again, and clean out flowerbeds.
If it's cold and not so nice I will go to the library for books & DVDs, and then read or bead.

Love the mugs!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I am not doing anything extraordinary...doing some housework and spending time with the family.

I love the mugs! Mugs are one of my favorite things to buy...I have to control myself because I only have so much cupboard space. Plus I'm the only one in my house that uses them. :)

Love your blog!! This weekend I am hanging out with my husband and son who is home from college. He has been home all week, and it has been nice having him back. We would invite our other son who is in high school, but he has a social life going strong... AND, he has to work. We will go out for dinner and we are grilled out some awesome pork chops!!!

Hi, I just found your blog through another's blog roll. Those cookies in your last post look yummy!

This weekend is my middle daughter's 18th birthday so I am baking all her favorites homemade from scratch: biscuits, quiche, strawberry shortcake and pizza. And we'll probably do some yardwork and get the vegetable garden ready for some tomato plants.

Happy Spring!

Dropped my daughter off at her high school tonight - she's doing crew. Will pick her up when it's done. Will drop her off for the matinee tomorrow, and pick her up when the show is over, and drop her off the evening performance, then go back and see the show myself. Drop her off for Sunday's performance, go to see 'Stomp', get back in time to pick her up after the last show.
