Good day, Sunshine!


It is FINALLY warm here-82 degrees right now!! I am so happy! I was so very tired of the rain and cold weather. This weekend was absolutely gorgeous. We spent most of the weekend outside. We worked in the yard and had soccer on Saturday. Sunday the neighbors had a barbeque, so we spent many hours over there eating, playing yard games, and just relaxing. We had a great time. The kids were in heaven because the neighbors set up their tent in the backyard. All of the neighborhood kids played in the tent all weekend. I think they only came in for meals and potty breaks.

I was also lucky enough to receive some good mail this weekend.
My sister Erin sent me this sweet little package. I think I have turned her on to the idea of good mail. Now we just have to get her started on a blog.

Rachel sent me this amazing package. The box was decorated so cute! But the inside was fantastic!! She sent me some of here favorite Utah item. My husband is going to be so excited when he sees those cookies. He loves frosted cookies. Her note cracked me up. She said that May 6th is International "No Diet Day", so carb it up, baby! No need to tell me twice to eat carbs. :) Thank you so much Rachel! You made my day extra sunny.

Okay I am drooling over the Grandma Sycamore's bread. Doug's mom always buys that for us when we go home. It is the BEST.

Hurray for sunshine. I wish I could say the same for us. Rats--it's raining!

I found you via the next blogger button and wanted to say I enjoy my stay. Here in VA we are also enjoying a sunny day with temps in the 80's.

Mmm, Grandma Sycamore bread. I love that stuff, but not as much as my cousin, who brings back a loaf in her carry on luggage every time she goes to visit. Lucky you!!

I LOVE grandma sycamore's bread. I literally lived off of it my freshman year of college. The pink cookies are something else too. I used to not be able to finish one. I don't think I'd have that problem anymore:)

Great good mail. And yay for sunshine!

I'm happy for you that it has warmed up. You for sure deserve a few sunny days.

Your good mail looks delicious. I love the no carbs comment.

I'm so glad you got the package! I can keep chocolate in the house and not think twice, but that bread can be a little too tempting!
Thank goodness for sunny weather! It makes life so blissful when the kids and their friends can play outside...not to mention sitting out myself and taking it all in! I actually fed Kate rice cereal on our front steps in her bouncy seat, just so I could be outside with the kids!
One of these days, we are going to take our kids to a ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK basketball game, and we'll have to meet up! You are so awesome and I'm so lucky to get to know you through this whole blogging universe! It's great! Happy Day to you! :)
