I think everyone’s naming their post today “Happy March!”
Well, it IS happy! Spring is on its way and I can’t wait. I can’t wait to see if the things I planted in the fall will grow. (I also planted a lot of daffodil and crocus bulbs, as well as more wildflower seeds!) Never mind all the snow that’s been falling today…
In the meantime, my little nephew, Cole, just turned one! We’re going to head to his birthday party tomorrow, and I hope to get some cute pictures of him and all the things I’ve been creating for him. :) I’ve been sharing some previews on Facebook, so here are a few more now. His party is going to be sock monkey themed, so I made some shirts and bibs…

(embroidery from here! I adjusted the smile and ears a little bit.) :)
And a big ol’ paper banner/bunting that says “Happy 1st Birthday Cole!” on it! I printed it all out on the computer (thank you, Microsoft Publisher), then my amazing friend Jessica cut it all out and strung it on some jute twine for me. It’s too big to take a picture of until we hang it at the party, but here’s a preview:
:) :) :)
I am so excited about it!
And “trying to be healthy” news, I bought a juicer on clearance at Aldi for $19.99. I know there are nicer ones, but for the price, I couldn’t help but give this one a try…just to see how we like it. I made my first glass of juice with a Granny Smith apple and a cucumber. It was pretty good! So, now I’m hoping to add fresh juice to our nutritional arsenal.
Any juicing or baby-present making on your agenda? Are you excited for spring (even though it’s snowing?)
