Spring's on its way: a weekly recap

I seriously can't believe how fast this month seems to be flying by... I mean, in the words of one of my middle school clients, "it's cray cray!" Ha! The nice thing is that the weather seems to be warming up, and Spring is finally on it's way; as made apparent by this past week's weather. I can't wait to trade my heavy sweaters for warmish cardigans, and snow boots for rain boots. Note to self: buy rain boots.
 
But before I run out to buy those rain boots, let's take a look back at the highs of my week, shall we?
 

one | Since I have been getting up early this week, I have been getting kitty cuddles while I've been writing my blog posts and doing homework. It's been really nice to be the only one awake, and to be able to work in peace and quiet (any mother knows what I'm talking about).  
 
two | I have a tendency to buy things that support charities. It happens, and as long as its for a good cause, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Anyways, Sevenly is an organization that produces cute shirts, and a variety of accessories. Each week they team up with a different charity and $7 from each product purchased that week, goes directly to the charity. They have teamed up with the Human Society, National Autism Association, Girl Up, and so many more.
 
This week's charity was International Down Syndrome Coalition. I bought this shirt, whose design was directly made for the IDSC campaign, and this shirt, whose design was made for the TWLOHA campaign. (To Write Love on Her Arms is dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.- Sevenly.org)
 
Anyways, Sevenly is a great organization, and I think everyone should go check them out.
 
three | Michael's was having a sale this week on their Ashland bouquets and I snatched some up to add Spring to my house.
 
four | Everyone's-Irish-for-a-day day was this week, and I celebrated by bringing you guys a chance to win $145 in cash... did you enter yet? Well you better... And here's the link to do that!!!
 
five | I have been a super busy bee this week, trying to come up with different designs for jewelry items for my Etsy shop, and the pearl necklace above is one of the designs that I came up with. I am actually in love with it, but since I only have a limited amount of the beads that I used, only one will be available at launch.
 
six | Since I posting so late, I decided to add a cute lil photo of Lil Man. The temp actually got up to around 55, and he was able to pull out his 4-wheeler (which thankfully held somewhat of a charge through the winter). He was so happy to go out and enjoy some sun! But alas, it's not going to last, because we are looking at highs in the high 30s and low 40s next week :( 3
 
Oh, yeah, so I have been hearing this song on the radio lately, and I just felt like sharing it with y'all.


 
Linking up with:
