Random thoughts on a beautiful sunny morning:

1. Don’t you think it’s amazing how much sunshine can change your day?  I think sunshine people are a lot like that, too.

2. Did anyone else watch the Bachelor finale?  Opinions?  Were you surprised?  Happy?  Wondering how someone could jump a fence that high?

3. It was a fun week on the blog.  We talked about farmhouse finds and WalMart and tried to find words when we were sad and painted a DIY cube wall and wrapped our stems with tulips.

4. I just finished a playhouse project for charity and I literally cannot WAIT to show you.  Seriously.  It’s like a mini version of my house.

5. Does anyone else laugh out loud at that ATT commercial where the tattoo artist says Stay in your lane bro?

6. And if you watched the Bachelor finale, did you see the group that closed the show?

Air Supply.

I love Air Supply.  Who doesn’t?


But my kids didn’t get the Air Supply memo.  They had no idea who they were.

That’s okay.

I have no idea who the half the people singing on football half times shows are, either. 🙂

And now?

    I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you .... I got the Air Supply memo! I laughed when you said you don't recognize half the performers on the football field. Happy Saturday to you.

    KariAnne!! I feel like I could have written the first part of this post! From sunshine, to Air Supply, to “stay in your lane,” to half-time performers... ALL of them. Have a great weekend!

    I agree with everything in your intro too. My husband and I saw Air Supply last year at a small theater and it wasn't even half full. Kind of sad. I thought they were great. My husband has since banned all Air Supply songs.

    Even though its only in the forties here today we had abundant sunshine and everywhere I went people were happy because of it!🌞 The store clerks were pleasant and people were out walking. Air Supply, ahh takes me back to HS and college. And LOVE that purple cabbage for Easter. I’m gonna use that idea! Thanks😉

    Hi Karianne! I loved your intro. My partner called Cassie as Colton’s pick the first night! I was in total agreement with him by the second show. She was the “dark horse”, lol. Personally I thought she’s got a good head on her shoulders but she’s a little flaky, lol. Oh well, I just hope they make it! 😊. Seeing air supply so aged made me feel old. Ugh... and I totally have no clue who most of the singers are on football nights. I’m so out of the loop! Loved your Walmart video by the way, you are too funny! I say y’all too, but I live in the Deep South so everyone here says it, lol! I hope you’re not worrying too much about your girls being gone, but I know you are! Just do a lot of retail therapy while they’re away lol.. Hang in there, they’ll be home before you know it! Thank you for the Saturday post. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 😊

    You are SO right about the sun. When my husband and I are out walking everyday, I ALWAYS say to him that I can take the cold winter as long as those skies are blue. Days like that just make you feel so alive. Spring is coming. The robins are back now! It’s funny because you know how people always think the start of a new year is a new beginning, but I’ve always felt that Spring and Easter is the new beginning of a year...like the world is waking up and everything is coming alive again. I love the Spring. I even saw some pussy willows out on our walk the other day and the sap is running now too. The maple syrup festivals around here will be starting soon! Happy day to you, KariAnne

    Love the AT&T Tattoo Parlor commercial. The tattoo artist is Blake Gibbons. He used to play Coleman on General Hospital. Some of you might recognize him from there. "Stay in your lane, bro." Cracks me up!
