Friend Makin Monday - Spring

I haven't done FMM in what feels like forever, but Amber had some fun questions so I thought I'd join back in on the fun:

1. Favorite things about Spring: Seeing all of the green again, opening my windows and being outside.

2. What I'm doing for Spring Break: Working :(

3. Favorite Spring flower: Tulips. When my mom lived in Cleveland she planted them just for me...yup, she's a great Mom! I have some in my yard now that were already here when we moved in.

4. Do you have a garden? Yes, and this year we're (that's me and my sidekick Mama) expanding and trying to grow veggies. We are both really excited.

5. If so, what do you grow? In the past just flowers, but this year we're also doing tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.

6. Do you do Spring cleaning? Yes, and I actually like it. There's something about a deeply scrubbed and clean house...priceless.

7. What is your weather *really* like right now? {Just b/c it's "officially" spring, doesn't mean that it feels like it for some of you} Right now it's cool and rainy...I don't think we're out of the cold woods yet.

8. Snapped any weather related photos lately? Share one with us! Here are my daffodils and tulips trying to come up:

9. What's your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon? If it's sunny and hot I'd love to be at the pool...otherwise, just being outside at home with Rondell and the kids is the best thing to me.

10. Favorite TV show right now? Lost...even though it's letting me down this year I still want to know all of those answers they keep promising so I continue to tune in every Tuesday.

I love tulips too! And I have got to plant a garden this year...maybe you can share some tips with me and my not so green thumb:)

LOVE tulips but can't have them here because of the deer. :( They snap off the heads before they ever have a chance to open.
I'll try to remember to post some pics of our veggie garden this year. My Hubs does a really good job with it. :) My favorite thing to grow is potatoes. I think it is too cool to go out and move a little dirt and find pounds and pounds of potatoes! ;) (I'm pretty easily impressed, I suppose!)

Oh, I'm so with you on the cleaning thing, girl! I haven't watched Lost but from all the buzz it sounds like a neat show - maybe I will catch up on it one day!

you are always the sweetest to give a comment. i was thrilled with the results of the office/craft room. now...if i can just get that turquoise paint out of my hair - i would be okay! ;)
this post is so springy! isn't it amazing how even the posts get more exciting as the season arrives.
btw, we have rainy weather here too. spits of snow, in fact today. i am so over it!

c'mon warmer weather!

Great list of favorite spring things. I agree with you I love a deep cleaned house. How it makes me feel so ready to get outside and enjoy the summer as everything is done inside.
I also can't wait to crack open the windows.
How I love spring!
