So beautiful, Koralee...what a lovely weekend you had! I'm just catching up from ours...more busy, less restful, but wonderful just the same!

Oh my goodness! Pink cinnamon rolls? You always inspire me, my friend...but this idea sends me over the moon! I've never thought of this girls have the ingredients out on the counter the moment I say the words "pink dough"!

Thanks for all the joy and beauty you share, dear friend...I hope your day is lovely in every way...

Maaike said...

really, a new home?! That's exciting! And it looks indeed like a lovely weekend. I took some time yesterday to work on the give-away for you... I must admit it does totally not look like the bag you 'won', but it matches the colors of your blog, so actually I will like the final result better. Exciting too!
Love, Maaike

I'd love to hear more about your new home! The weekend just flew by! I can't even remember what we did. Oh, we did make it to whole foods for a big load up. I bought some different lettuces and some broccoli to plant! I'm looking forward to that!

KORALEE! HOW WAS YOUR DAY AT SCHOOL? Oh dearest, I woke up late today and ran into my classroom. I had so much to do, and this week is parent conferences and so much. But here I am, where I love to be. Look at what you did here; did those magnificent walks help your back my sweet? AND DID YOU GUYS FIND A NEW HOME YET? Oh do tell....we are getting snow tomorrow night dearest...yep. BUT I DO BELIEVE IN SPRING, and I can at least live vicariously through YOUR POSTS!!!! LOVE TO YOU MY DEAREST! Anita

Jacqueline said...

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

OH! I JUST CAUGHT YOU before I went to bed! I am so happy to hear that your back is behaving my dear! I was in my workshop downstairs, preparing a birthday gift, when I started getting these strange pangs in my thighs. I either have a misalignment or I have something going on. Our insurance costs so much for a co-pay and we just sent off my entire paycheck for taxes, so I have to wait to go to the doctor!!!! But this is so strange. I have been athletic for MANY YEARS, and I am having strange pains that I shouldn't be having, unless this is due to my ADVANCED AGE! 53 on Saturday. Yikes! But oh how sweet.....get your therapy treatment dear and I raise my cup of decaf English Breakfast to my sweet Koralee....See you and Rosie in the morning...Anita

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Did you find your home sweet home yet, Koralee?
I'm sure wherever you and your husband sweetly dwell, your family will call it home-sweet-home ♥

Oh I have a question for you ~ would your dream kitchen be light {white, cream} or stained wood?

Your dreamy flowers and strung beads are very pretty.
There are daffodils blooming here, but the other buds are ever so shyly opening... I'm afraid our weather is much like Anita's. Cold, damp ~ almost snow-like weather.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. Wishing the beauty of your weekend to continue through the week.

Little Things By Anna... said...

Love your pictures of the buttercups! They have always been my favorite flower! As usual, your pictures just make me have a happier day!

Linda Carole Bloom said...

Hi Koralee,
Are you looking for a new house?? Exhausting, but how exciting! Moving in the spring/summer is the best. Daffys are my favorite flowers. My weekend wasn't as wonderful - three 12 hr shifts, but now 4 days off!
Love, Linda

Draffin Bears said...

thanks for stopping by :)

Good morning, Koralee.
I can't think of anything more fun than dreaming about a new home ! I remember walks I took when our house was being built and feeling on top of the world ! It was scary and exciting at the same time. My Dad had bought a big old farmhouse (after living in a small ranch for 40 years!) and, long story short, gave us a piece of land right next door. He actually helped in the building of our house. Precious memories. Since he passed away and mom is in the nursing home, my middle daughter and sweet Olivia have moved into Mom's house. I have actually spent time dreaming of transforming the barn into a home ! The trouble is, it would probably cost as much to fix it up as it did to build our house! :( Oh well, you never know, right? And dreams are FREE ! :)
Your pics are gorgeous...but I've come to expect nothing less, dear friend.
I hope your lovely weekend means your back is feeling better. I am on Spring Break this week. :) Rainy days are forecast for the first half of the week so I will catch up on housework. Then, they should make way for some sunshine (to play in) at week's end ! I hope that Easter Sunday is sunny and warm. The whole family will come for dinner after church and I want to hide Easter eggs in the yard for Dayton and Olivia.
((HUGS)) and happy dreams to you, dear friend.

Sem Nome said...

Our weekend was not that perfect, sweet Koralee. Aila got the flu! Fever, tears and running nose all weekend long...up to now.
Much love to you, dear!! Bela

Sue said...

So is the new home just a dream or is there one in the works? We have been in this house 8 years...the longest ever for us. We seem to change houses every 6 years until now. Maybe that is why I wanted the almost new kitchen...I needed a change, but not one that required movers!

malia said...

visiting your blog first thing in the morning gives me a good feeling to begin the day with. gorgeous photos and good luck with the planning.
