In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

Happy Spring! I can’t believe it’s already mid-March and my Michael will be turning 9 in 5 days! We've had wild weather in North Texas in the past couple of days. On Monday, there were all sorts of weather warnings and watches from tornadoes to flash floods. Today, it's sunny, mild and beautiful. This is one of my favorite times of the year in TX. The trees have fresh leaves on them. The bluebonnets are blooming and tulips are in season. The weather is usually mild and beautiful. Not too hot and not too cold. Just perfect. This doesn’t last long here in TX, but I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.

This year, I’ve promised myself that I will make it the Dallas Arboretum during Dallas Blooms. This is a short period where the tulips and other bulb flowers are in bloom. It’s supposed to be spectacular. M said that he can get one of the guys he works with to take our family photos and I’d like to have the photo session there. Problem is I need him to schedule it NOW so that we don’t miss the peak bloom period.

This is also when the Spring dresses come out! I’ve seen a few that are really pretty but I can’t buy them because I need to lose a little more weight. I want to get back to my pre-third baby size which is between 2-4. I’m at a 6-8 right now and I am not at all happy about it. I would like to start going to the gym again, but I’m not sure how that will happen. Sigh.

Mark will turn 5 months in less than 2 weeks. He is just getting cuter and bigger every day. He’s still not sleeping well and is cranky a lot. It’s pretty much our fault because I know that Sarah hold him most of the day. He’s probably spoiled. For me, that’s OK because he’s still so little.

  1. The Arboretum is stunning right now and well worth the visit. Make time to see the wildflowers at White Rock Lake as well. The Arboretum is on the shores of the lake.

    And don't forget the Bluebonnet display at White Rock Lake. Here are some images for you to see:
