Random thoughts on a tree-blooming Saturday morning:

1. What are your thoughts on headbands? Is there an age cut-off?

I tried it.

And I felt 12.

2. Look at this deal!!!! Our mascara which we all love so much is on sale right now for the cheapest I’ve ever seen.

You can see the mascara here.

And don’t forget the lash primer for the cheapest I’ve ever seen, too.

You can see the lash primer here.

3. Did you see American Idol and Survivor are starting a new season? I feel like I have been watching these shows forever and I never get tired of them.

Our whole family has big opinions on both.

4. Four of my nieces and nephews and my sister-in-law and brother and mother are leaving soon for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. They are so excited and a little nervous at the same time. I can’t wait to hear all about it when they get back.

5. It was an amazing week on the blog. We discussed:

6. Can I tell you how much I love CTL Z? It just makes life better.

And now?

    If only our weather could decide what season we are in! I'm trying to not get too excited about spring, because just when I do, we get blanketed in snow. Lots of fun reading again--I especially liked the bedroom with red touches and the bunny clay pot. Also .... Jodena says it correctly ....

    I definitely needed this “shot in the arm” of spring inspiration. It was 22 degrees today here in upstate NY . So the spring arrangements are so lovely to see. Happy Weekend!

    Agree with the headband... I keep trying them because they are really cute, but I decided they are for other people....lol... I just cannot pull it off and I look like I am trying too hard!

    You are so sweet to share my easy topiary idea. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. We're in for a wet and rainy weekend so I can't wait to dive into all these fabulous links. My sister LOVES the mascara you suggested but I'm not sure she knows about the primer so she will be tickled pink when I send it her way. Hope your weekend is filled with all good things. Big hugs and thank yous, CoCo
