Hello Spring!

I am a little bit late welcoming spring 
because I've been busy
raking and bagging leaves
and assorted gunk from the yard!

A little pretty among the the layers and layers of dirty old leaves!
And now that we've had a bit of rain,
everything is turning green and budding
right before my very eyes!

In celebration of spring and all that jazz,
Mr. Tennis decided to get a 
new ride!

Last weekend was sunny and up to 70
so a convertible made perfect sense!

Isn't he just too much sometimes!?! 
He loves it and says that with a little practice
(it's a stick shift), I can drive it too! 
So happy that Lincoln is very flat!
Last time I drove a stick shift - I had to be sure and make 
a plan ahead of time
to avoid hills!

Now that I'm a more experienced driver
and it's a lot flatter here, I really am not 
worried at all.
My biggest concern is . . . 
my hair!!

Seriously, we've just entered into the season
of bad hair days!  
You know:   rain + humidity = frizz and big hair!!
Add a convertible to that -- I'm a little afraid! 
Make that very afraid!
I noticed some robins eyeing my hair last weekend 
when it (my hair) was only slightly out of control!
Bring on the hot rollers and flat irons!

Only 2 years from a learner's permit!!!

You totally crack me up. Perhaps you need some stylish scarves for your hair when the top is down. What fun you will have all in that jazzy car. Maddy looks pretty cute behind the wheel.

So nice Spring is finally here! And having a convertible is a great way to celebrate ;-) A good reason to sacrifice a good hair day, lol. New to your blog and just wanted to say hi! Have a great day!

I learned to drive a stick. I remember going the long way to avoid some hills!
