Weekend in Mid March

Spring comes this week according to the calendar, so I will give in to the spring fever that March always brings. There is still snow and there is not a lot that can be done outside, but the sunshine streaming through the windows this weekend felt like winter may finally be in its last days. I put away my mug with the snowflakes, that I have been using all winter and found this sweet robin's egg blue mug to help me celebrate the new season. A pretty, new mug makes me happy.

The sunshine also motivates me to put on my sunglasses and get out of the house, so I took a shopping trip to Michaels for some DIY inspiration. I have some ideas for spring front door decor, using the little bird's nests you see in the photo, as well as a project for my master bedroom.

Finally, the weekend ended on a happy note for my alma mater. MSU won the Big 10 Basketball Tournament and seems to be peaking at the right time in the long season. March Madness should be exciting, with many analysts picking my Spartans to make it to the Final Four. I think I am going to fill out a bracket to make watching the tournament even more fun.

Happy Monday and Erin Go Bragh!


  1. I've never done a bracket but maybe it would help beat the winter blahs that always settle in around mid-March. I love the mug...pottery makes me happy too : )

  2. Sadly, Baylor did not win the Big 12 in Men's this year. It was close. Hubby has been watching BB non-stop. Personally, I am ready to move on. LOL Can't wait to see what you have planned for the bird's nests. It is another rainy day here. Might need to hit up the craft store.

  3. This week is another busy one...Spring, another birthday, Tai Chi, the gym, the eagles...:)JP

  4. I've changed my coffee mugs, too. What a difference it makes in my morning! Have a great week!

  5. Spring is in the air, that's for sure . . . Best BB game watching for me in a long time! The Michigan Michigan State game was such a great game. Probably because my team won! Greatgames ahead . . . hoping the Spartans make the Final Four!

  6. Hard to believe that spring is a couple days away! Love those nests - our Michael's didn't have anything like that when I was there a couple weeks ago.

    Good luck to your team!

  7. You just reminded me that I need to fill out my brackets...Good luck..

  8. Oh, your mug is very very very lovely! :-)
