Back from Spring Break

We had a wonderful Spring Break in New Orleans! We celebrated my birthday, enjoyed a couple of our favorite St. Patrick's Day parades, ate lots of yummy food, went to the Audubon Aquarium and the new Insecterium. We ate Snoballs, rode the streetcars and the ferry, visited St. Louis Cathedral, played in the parks my kiddos loved so much when we lived there and just enjoyed playing tourists. I literaly took hundreds of pictures! I'll share a few now and be back later when I have time to upload some more.

Sorry I have been so bad at keeping up with the blog lately. As I've said before, I have a bit of a problem with over committing myself. I really do need a twelve step program for people who volunteer too much. My latest little (yeah right!) project is the design and layout of my son's school yearbook. This project has been on going for months, but there's finally an end in sight! However, it's going to be a busy couple of weeks to get everything finished before the deadline. Most people usually have a yearbook staff for these big projects....I am a staff of one. (I kinda like it that way.) Did I mention that in addition to my over-volunteering issues, I also have a few control issues and perfectionist tendencies? We'll have to delve deeper into that when I have more time.

In other news, Spring is definitely in the air around here. My seedlings are starting to sprout and there are little green buds on the trees. I'm so excited! I hate winter being cold. I'm so ready to thaw out and get outdoors again. As soon as I wrap up the yearbook project, I promise to have lots of fun new stuff to add to the blog. I have tons of photos to upload, some fun gardening projects to tackle and a big birthday trip to The Big Easy to document next week!

I hope everyone has wonderful weekend!!!
