The Spring Fever

I has it!

Last week was Spring Break here, and toward the middle of the week we decided we needed to get away for a few days. Slim and family recently moved to Arkansas, so we gave them a call and asked if they'd like to meet us at a lake house on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs. They were game, so off we went.

We had an absolutely fabulous time that involved sitting on the deck drinking beer (us, not the kiddos), eating out, and more sitting on the deck listening to music and catching up. We were right on the lake, so the men and kids did some fishing and took some canoe rides. Slim and I did some more sitting on the deck drinking beer.

We did *not* want to come home yesterday!

Also, since Mr. Slim played Gin and Juice covered by The Gourds for us, I am obsessed with it! Perfect music for some deck-sitting-beer-drinking. (for some reason Blogger won't let me embed a youtube vid.... any ideas?)

I've also pulled out my Coach Violet Parker bag for the season- love love love this bag. The side pockets are perfect for my phone since I can never find anything in my Mary Poppins bag.

How are you celebrating the new season?

That sounds like so much fun. I was just home with two cranky kids and had some family in town. I need to check out that song, as we actually spent some time this week singing the Snoop Dog version. It must be nice to go on a trip and not come home with horror stories about your kids. Count your blessings.
As far as embedding the video, I just click on "Embed" on You Tube and copy the code, then go into Edit HTML tab instead of Compose and paste it. That always works for me.

We'll be in Hot Springs in a few weeks. My daughter's national cheer competition gets underway there.

Happy Spring!
