Get Your Easter On!

Happy Easter!  I spent a lovely Easter with family out in Dublin.  We ate, we drank, we laughed, and a few of us played basketball and hunted for eggs!  I took some pictures of my sisters wonderful table arrangement and thought I'd share them.  I hope you all had a fabulous day!

What I'm Loving Wednesday....

It's that time again.  Link up with Jamie or just pop on over to her page to see what other bloggers are loving today.

I am loving my perm!  Yes, I went through with it and it turned out wonderful.  Miss V said it was "beachy" which is EXACTLY what I was going for.  LOVE

I didn't really love the was stinky and I was freaking out the entire time but I LOVE the final product.  (Please ignore my dorky pictures and just look at my hair!)

 Most of all, I am simply LOVING Mrs. Hall and baby Ryland.  
I am so proud of my friend and her step into mommyhood.
In the top two pictures he's wearing one of the outfits I got for him...Mrs. Hall says they must have been made for him because they fit perfectly.  

It is so special to see a good friend become a mother.

In the spirit of new babies and mommies...

Oh The Places You'll Go... Morcom Rose Garden!

Spring break is here!  I have my days wide open and plenty of free time to explore parks, new neighborhoods, and take some time to appreciate my city.  Miss V has been enjoying her city as well, check out her blog to see the places she has been visiting.

Today I found myself wondering over to the Morcom Rose Garden.

I had heard quite a bit about this rose garden but never ventured up the hill to take a look for myself.  Today was the perfect day to see what all the fuss was about.  The sun was peeking through the clouds, the air was crisp, and the first signs of spring were all around me; bees buzzing, flowers blooming, and little squirrels playing.
I started down this path...
and came upon this cute little building...
and a pond...
and a waterfall that I imagine is pretty when it is on...

and all these beautiful roses...

And little creatures enjoying a break from the rain...

Several people were walking through the park or sitting on benches to enjoy the warm spring air and serene atmosphere.  I spent over an hour exploring and taking photos.  I hope that my pictures have done Morcom Rose Garden justice.  I look forward to visiting in a few weeks when there are more flowers in bloom.
