Spring time is officially here! The temperatures have finally started to act a little spring-like and the snow is melting away. It’s about time! I was ready for that shiz to disappear weeks ago. This weeks Five for Friday is all about spring. Spring has sprung!
I love tulips! My very favorite flower is in full bloom when spring rolls around. I just wish they lasted longer. I got the prettiest birthday tulips from my inlaws yesterday!
I think Craig and I have started a new tradition – the Badger Spring Scrimmage. It’s a super cheap date ($10 for tickets) to go see the new football team. We don’t usually make it to a regular season game, which is fine by me. I hate crowds and drunk college kids! Last year was a the perfect day – despite being chilly, it was sunny. There wasn’t a packed stadium. And we had a great lunch at the Great Dane!
Dogs that don’t mind being outside. This is huuuuge. Our dogs drove us insane during the cold weather. They wanted to go out and run around for five minutes before coming back to the door and barking to be let back in. …and then two minutes later (after warming up their tootsies!) they were at the door again begging to go back out. Drove me insane. Now, we can let them out and leave them be for an extended period of time. Downside? Muddy paws. Ughhh
Craig’s birthday. I love gift giving. And surprises. Craig’s birthday is in May and I’ve already been scheming what I can do to surprise him. When we lived in Tennessee, I teamed up with his bosses to get him to Nashville and surprise him with tickets to a Preds game. Last year he got to enjoy a bomb cookies and creme cake (and watch his wife in a dance recital).
Grilling! Craig became quite the grill master last summer, which is impressive considering he was working with a tailgating grill. Tailgating grills mean that you can cook like two hamburgers at a time, which caused for some creative problem solving when we were entertaining. For Christmas, he got a “real” grill from my parents. He feels like a real big boy with his big boy grill and I can’t wait to put him to work!
What are your favorite things about spring?
