this weekend has been, simply put, fantastic. zack and i went on a super fun date friday night and we feasted on an italian dinner. yesterday we slept in, cleaned the house {OH how it needed it!} and enjoyed the warm, spring-like weather. and today we have a busy day of church + meeting up with friends for 2 different meals.

spring is totally taking over my heart + soul and i love it, haha! yesterday i sipped a cup of coffee as i put away winter decorations, valentine’s day decorations, cleaned the house, dusted, put away winter hats/boots, and then mopped. and ya know what? it was amazing. it felt so good to get the dust and dirt out of the house. zack spent the afternoon working on the jeep: vacuuming, cleaning, getting an oil change. he and bauer hung out outside in the sunshine :] it was so cute to peek out the kitchen window and see them together in the yard/driveway. i love my boys so much.

it’s like the fresh air of spring has flipped on a happiness switch for me. even though this past winter hardly brought any snow there was still many, many overcast days where the sun never peeked out. i’m ready to put those kind of days behind us. and guess whaaaat?! warmer days mean grilling on the back patio. YES!

so today’s “7 pretty things on Sunday” post is inspired by all things spring + happy. yesterday alyssa and i went to patina and picked out a few things for tiff’s birthday {my SIL and her cuz}. it was so much fun! i’m so inspired from the fabric and accessories we saw and i can’t wait to fabric shop + work in the studio this week.

**i’ll be adding more {new} wristlets, headbands and a few MORE items to the gussy shop this week! click here to see which headbands have made it back into the shop friday.

    These last couple days the weather has been heavenly! I am getting anxious for the Linders garden centers to start popping up…it feels good to not have to dress in layers. As for any spring updating, we rent so that binds my hands a bit, but I’ve got some fun craft ideas.
