The weather around our parts could not be beat this weekend! We spent a large portion of our waking hours outside soaking it all in. I believe after a few false alarms, spring has finally arrived, my friends. We had my sisters kids with us Friday night and all day Saturday and Caroline and Carter just eat up all that extra attention. I took advantage of the extra help and got some baking and yard work done.
I made this coffee cake for our neighbor who just got home from having back surgery.
An aside, but this pan is allegedly non-stick. Well, I still greased it a bit since the recipe called for it. After letting it cool AND loosening the sides with a knife, the thing still wouldn't turn out no matter how hard I tried, so I just delivered it in the pan. Tacky? Maybe. But effective nonetheless.
I got some pansies put out in my window boxes Saturday and I'd really like to add some ivy or some sort of vine, but there aren't any our here yet, so I guess I'll have to wait. I also put my ferns out on the porch. I think it looks so much more inviting and really ups the curb appeal so maybe these flowers will help me get this house sold ;)
I had to stop by the eye doctor to pick up from contacts and Caroline just loved trying on some frames.
Carter ate his first full meal in the high chair. This high chair was mine when I was little, the Caroline used it. Well, Carter hates it as much as she did around his age. He lasted maybe five minutes before he started trying to wiggle out of it. And check out how hard little man sacked out after he'd played with the kids all morning...
I got a lot done around the house Sunday and got started packing for our upcoming trip to Charleston! I swear, no matter how far in advance I start packing, I always leave the most random things when we travel. I forgot my pajamas and Carter's diapers when we went to Alabama a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to see what I forget this trip! Happy Monday, Y'all!
