Tell me what your favorite part of Spring is. I love getting to know my readers. 

Spring is my favorite season in the Midwest, United States. I love it when the weather begins to warm up, the flowers start to emerge out of the ground, and the trees being to bud. I love flower beds and I can't wait till it is warm enough to get outside to clean up my flower.

I will draw a winner on Tuesday.

  42. The shamrock is adorbs!

    I can't ever decide which I like most: Spring or Summer. Spring means yard work and getting outside finally - I love landscaping!! It also means baseball season. Summer means laying out by the pool with a foo-foo drink (or sometimes just a big glass of iced tead). Oh and cook outs!! Gosh, I can't decide.
