These pictures are from last September....when it was green and sunny. It appears that Minnesota Spring really did come in like a lamb, and will now be going out like a lion. As I type, I am looking out at a few inches of snow, maybe the most snow we've had in a few months here. I think historically, March is the snowiest month in Minnesota, but I am always ok with it because warm weather and longer days are just on the horizon. So today I will wipe the snow from the car knowing that this yucky snow will soon melt and feed the trees that will make Minnesota that beautiful state that we sometimes forget about for 3-6 months every year.
Bring it on Minnesota, I still love you.
Happy Monday!

  1. great the first i love the tee and in the second the jacket is so nice

  2. Spring still hasn't come here. We had one day of -12 C which I think is like 60 F and then we were plunged back into winter. I must admit that it is depressing. I'm glad we managed to get away this year to break it up.

    I hope for both of us that Spring shows up soon!


  3. I felt the same way when I was cleaning off my car this morning, I'm like, this stinks right now, but it will make the grass green and happy later! Yay for a positive spin right? I remember loving that Mama Bear t-shirt before and still love it now!

  4. I know - I still love this crazy snowy state too. Though you both look awfully warm in these pics. Just have to remind myself that it's coming soon.

  5. I love all of our crazy weather too - even if it does drive me bananas at times. The Mama Bear Shirt is AMAZING!

  6. Nice outfits!
    Spring still hasn't come here in CT too.
