10 pictures on the 10th day of the month!
{Document a snapshot of your life & find beauty among the ordinary things in your day!}
Happy Saturday!
We had a great Saturday, it started off with Kevin letting me sleep in (like he normally lets me do on Saturdays!) What I love about the weekends is fun things for breakfast, like donuts!

We normally have really lazy Saturday mornings, but we felt like being productive & take advantage of the beautiful weather and get things done around the house and yard.
Kevin mowed the lawn, I pulled out dead plants & planted a few new ones. And, I admired our tree that is in full blossom. Spring is here!
Lemons from our neighbors tree. I will be making lemon bars in the next few days. Yum.
The girls went to my older sister's house for a bit to make St. Patty's Day cookies, so Kevin and I were able to enjoy lunch poolside in our backyard. I Love paninni's!

My St. Patty's Day Banner:
Love daffodils. My mother in law gave these to me!
While the girls were at Auntie El's I decided it was time to tackle the beast that is the laundry.
This is ALL the clean laundry in our house. 5 loads of it.
After the girls got back, the game was still going on & I still had laundry to fold, so the girls played outside in the court with the neighbors.
On the left, Kevin fixing Kate'a flat tire. On the right, the girls taking a bike break to play Uno with some neighbors. Kate is now obsessed with Uno.

Hope you had a great Saturday. Ours was productive & fun. It was a good day.
Next up on our Saturday night agenda is to watch MoneyBall that we rented & play Draw Something....downloaded the app last night & I am totally hooked!
And, I am going to go set our clocks forward...I didn't know it was Daylight Savings until a few days ago...that snuck up on me this year!

  4. Love. Love. Love...moneyball. HOpe you do too! I went by myself to see it on my birthday (it was opening day).


  5. I love all of the natural light you captured in each photo. And I love the sprinkles on those donuts. Great set!

  6. I, too, just want to take photos of the food I eat all day on Ten on Ten! Your natural light was great...and it looked like a great day!

  7. Looks like a perfect day! Hope you will share your lemon bar recipe because Mel's recipes are our faves here! :)

  8. Looks like a great day...go Buffs!!

  9. Okay seriously, I wrote this on my calendar and couldn't even remember to do it. Ugh! Oh well... next month... when I'm getting more sleep, lol.

    I just pinned a lemon tart recipe from Sweet Paul that looks super easy and yummy. I bet it would be amazing with home grown lemons!

  10. looks like a great day mel! love the lemons.

  11. Your pictures are always great, but these were so colorful and fantastic! Too late in the East to fold laundry...maybe another day!

  13. You had a wonderful and full day! I love the lemon shot...and lemon bars :) Having an outdoor lunch with your hubby sounds divine. Glad your team won and that you were able to tackle laundry!

  14. Darn it I missed the 10th again. ha! Well, I must say that wearing helmets while playing uno is safety at a whole new level. Looks like a great day.

  15. There is so much happy in this post...except the laundry. Boo laundry. Now laundry that's put away...that's happy. But that's a hard picture to take!
