Spring Has Sprung

Happy First Day of Spring Everyone!

The temps are rising, the flowers are budding, the days are getting longer.....and I'm loving every bit of it. 

So, in honor of this lovely season, it's time for another addition of Things I'm Loving Right Now.

1. Arnold Palmer (the drink, not the golfer)
For those that don't know, Arnold Palmer=1/2 lemonade, 1/2 iced tea. I've been drinking these everyday. 
Y'all know how much I love iced tea anyway, but add a little lemonade to the mix, and nothing is more refreshing on a warm day. I really like the Gold Peak tea and the Newman's Own lemonade, but nothing beats the homemade Arnold Palmers that my dad makes :)

2. Reading on my back porch after school
Last week the temps were in the high 70s/low 80s. It was so gorgeous! Combine that with an extra hour of sunlight (thanks daylight savings!) and a good book, and that's what I call a great afternoon. I just finished The Kite Runner and now I've moved on to this one. It's pretty good so far-a nice, light read.

And speaking of books, that brings me to number 3.

3. The Hunger Games-the movie
I seriously can't wait for this movie to come out. I've been counting down the days (3 more left!) I loved reading these books, and the best part is, so did Paul. He's looking forward to the movie just as much as I am. I think I see a date night in our near future!

4. Pretzel M&Ms
I have nothing else to say.

5. Essie nail polish in lilacism
I am just loving this color for Spring. It's the perfect shade of pastel purple and I think it's so cheerful.

6. L'OREAL tan towels
I'm not usually a big "self-tanner," but on a whim, I decided to try these, and I was pleasantly surprised. They're pretty much fool proof-no weird orange streaks for me!-and they leave you with a subtle glow. Just enough to make a few of my co-workers ask if I had gotten some sun.

7. Spring Break
Next week is my Spring Break and I can. not. wait. I'm going to Oak Island, North Carolina with my parents to check out the house they're building on the beach. I've never been to that part of NC, so I'm anxious to see it, and the progress on the house. I also get to see my sister!!! I haven't seen her since her wedding in November, which is way too long. I miss her. I'm so looking forward to a relaxing week with family!

What are y'all lovin this Spring???
