The Great Outdoors

nullnullnull

Good morning, loves! Horray for Thursday! The weekend's almost here and I cannot wait this week. How come the week after a short week is always so hard to get through? Do you agree?

This weekend I'm looking forward to a bunch of things. Besides the usual, I can get more rest bit, I have a few other things to look forward to.

First is the weather. It's supposed to be gorgeous finally. It's been a bit chilly the past few weeks and I'm looking forward to being outside and rediscovering Spring. I was back in tights and boots and my winter coat yesterday and I wasn't too happy about that!

And I'm also looking forward to going to my Yia Yia's house to celebrate Greek Easter with my family on Sunday. My grandmother has the most gorgeous back yard and garden and I'm so looking forward to siting outside and just taking all of the beauty in.

And yes, I do realize I just wrote a whole post about the weekend and I still have a few more days to get through before I get there. Nothing wrong with looking ahead, right? :)

Enjoy the day, sweets!

And today is the last day to enter the Shopbop giveaway to win a $100 giftcard. Be sure to get your entries in before 11:59 PST.

That sounds like the perfect spring weekend! I just love a lovely backyard - I wish I had more of a green thumb, but likely my husband enjoys gardening so our backyard is not the Sahara desert (which it might be if it was left up to me ;-))

The photos are so gorgeous - as usual :-)

The weather has been funky hasn't it? Even over here, it's cooled off quite a bit! I have just as much work over the weekend so I suppose that I am looking forward to Monday! Happy Thursday to you.

This week has dragged out it seems - I keep thinking today is Friday and then I remember that I still have to come back to the office tomorrow...and there is no hope to leave early tomorrow. At least the weekend will be fun and it is supposed to warm up a bit around here, too! Spring needs to come and stay!
Much love,
B

Yay!! I love the weekends, beautiful spring.

I'm Greek too :) My whole family is coming over Sunday to my house for Greek Easter! Cannot wait for all the food, especially anything cooked by my Yiayia.
