Spring has Sprung

Please ignore the dead grass, the weeds that need to be pulled and the fact that the flower bed really needs a fresh layer of pine needles.
I took this picture a few days ago, this morning every one of the tulips had bloomed! Tulips are my favorite flower and seeing them bloom just brings a smile to my face!

Sev and I are going to look at more potential homes this weekend. I'm tired of looking, but we can't really stop looking until we find something...though I have threatened to just live in a cardboard box!! It's stressful, but my fingers are crossed that we'll find something soon!!

I met with Marcy yesterday (the lady that does Japanese straightening) and she was GREAT! I'm happy to report I scheduled an appointment with her and my wild hair days will soon come to an end! She was also very professional, very sweet and very reasonably priced! Woohoo!

I stayed up late last night working on my latest cake creation. It was a task that proved to be harder than usual. Matt and I have begun the process of taking all of my kitchen items out and putting his items in. It's a slow process (we both work full-time and only have about 1 hour in the evening to pack and unpack) and therefore we have a lot of items strewn around the kitchen, laid out on the counter tops and sitting in boxes. Basically, I don't know where anything is and I realized just how frustrating not know where anything is can be! I managed to make do and fell asleep around midnight. I've decided to put all cake making on hold until we have found a place to live and I can unpack...I never really thought much about the layout of a kitchen, but that seems to be one thing I'm paying more and more attention to as we house hunt. "Gourmet kitchen" Yes please!
Here is a picture of the cake I made last night:

That's all for now!! Have a great weekend!!

Yes, I like your flowers too! I am very proud of you! My yard looks terrible...I have all my flowers, dead as a door nail still in my beds. I'm trying to see if they will come back this year. They aren't supposed too but Grandma says she has some of them that will come back, I'm trying to be patient. I really want to go to Lowe's though and buy every flower they have. I'm glad I got grandma's gene for loving gardening but man its expensive!
