It’s good to say Happy Official Spring! It may be spring, but it feels like winter here. Spring can be so fickle in our area that way. The rolling farm fields here are so green and lush, and signs of spring are everywhere. I just planted spinach, and I am looking every day for little green sprouts to peek their heads above the ground. I hope signs of spring are making a big appearance where you live, too!

We are so glad you stopped by, friend! I’m up first today…

1. NEW FEATURE THIS WEEK: We all want beautifully decorated homes where our personalities and preferences shine through. If you are like me, you probably also like to decorate seasonally. However, it can be a lot of time and work! Over the years, I have discovered an easier way to decorate my home. It’s called LAZY GIRL DECORATING. Let’s decorate smarter and not harder and enjoy the process.

7. FUN AND INTERESTING FACTS: Happy Spring! Yesterday was the first day of spring; what is spring’s official name? What date do most Americans unofficially start spring?

8. SPRING INSPIRATION: Last week on WWW, Ann shared this site that I got lost in. I signed up for this free mini-course and to plant flowers. This site is so beautiful, interesting, and educational.

9. Did you know your salad spinner is also a salad washing machine? Fill the large bowl with enough water to cover the bottom of your salad. Add your salad to the removable colander basket and spin it. This will wash your salad greens. Then, dump out the water and spin the excess water off the greens. Simple! Here’s my favorite salad spinner.

10. KITCHEN HACK: For 6 easy-peel hardboiled eggs, steam them rather than boil them. Put one-half inch of water in a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Add a steamer basket to the saucepan (not necessary—you can put the eggs in the water). Bring the water to a boil and turn off the heat. Add the eggs and let them steam for 12-15 minutes. Then, put the eggs in an ice bath until completely cooled.

Answer to #7: The official name of the first day of spring is the vernal equinox. Americans start to celebrate spring on March 1st. Now you know!

8.) SIMPLE SIDE DISH IDEA: One of our favorite side dishes is Minute Rice! Not just plain rice though…this version is very tasty. In a glass bowl, heat one cup of chicken broth in the microwave until it boils. Add one cup of Minute Rice, cover, and let it sit for 10 minutes. In the same measuring cup you used for the chicken broth, heat one cup of frozen peas and carrots in the microwave for two minutes. When the rice is ready, combine it with the peas and carrots, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Stir well and serve hot. It’s delicious!

9.) A FEW FASHION FINDS: I just got these white denim crops and I love them. I looked and looked last year but struck out, so I was thrilled to find these. I also got this cute black and white tee that’s on sale now. One more recent purchase that I’ve already worn several times are these cargo linen drawstring crops. They are very comfortable and go with anything.

10.) That’s it for me. I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week! XO

Happy Day, friend!
