f a l l i n g ,

No, no. Not the leaves, but snow! Yes, snowfall on the first Sunday of Spring. But who are we kidding? We are Minnesotans! It does not phase me. Told you, Spring has many surprises for us (see previous post)! :) I am not too mad about it. :P

I thought these pictures will make you smile as you may not be smiling about the snow! I will hope that it clears up for you, friends! :)

XO, Jean

Spring is in the Air!

We were pretty spoiled this past winter with little snow. Let's see what this Spring has in store for us!

Planning on putting in new plants in the yard... We shall see how that goes as midway through, my schedule gets pretty busy and I am unable to attend those pretty pieces of life. Need something that does not need much attention. :) I have been researching about composting and want to make a compost bucket. I want one that is not to sore to the eye and something small. Do any of you have one and how did you decide which one was best for you? Did you make one or purchase from your hardware store? Thanks in advance.

Anyway, let's get out of here, it's Spring!! :)

St. Patrick's Day Green Shake

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, I made a Green Shake! :)

2 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream
1 ¼ Cups Milk
¼ Teaspoon Mint Extract
8 Drops Green Food Coloring

Do this:
Combine all ingredients into blender, blend until smooth. You can fancy your cup with whipped cream or sprinkles (optional). Pour shake into cup and enjoy!

Pretty easy, right?

You can view previous Saint Patrick’s Day meals/desserts here and here.

Parents' 40th Anniversary

March 3rd marked my Parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary! I am proud of them, they have come a long way and accomplished a lot of their dreams. They came from a war torn country, basically, having to leave all of their possessions behind just to survive for the next hour. They survived a lot, not only war, but a relationship called marriage!

Growing up, I have witnessed their ups and downs. Witnessing this has taught me that marriage is not as fairy tale as we may wish, but if you put in the work, something awesome may come out of it. I adore them.

They have blessed me with seven wonderful siblings, supported me through college, buying me materialistic things that they told me I did not need and only to learn in my adult life that they were correct. They sometimes annoyed me, sometimes still do, but they are my parents and that is what most parents do and I am more than sure I would not want anyone else than them.

Happy Anniversary Mommy and Daddy because there is no other way I could call you than that. ♥ ♥
