Friend Making Monday!

So I'm trying a new thing to get out and about in the blogosphere, so I am linking up with Amber's blog here to participate in this week's friend making monday. I would encourage you all to link up to her blog and share with readers your favorite things about spring! Here's mine: 
1. Favorite things about Spring: Sunshine, flowers blooming, sun stays out later, flip flops!!

2. What I'm doing for Spring Break: Well, I'm no longer in school and I don't have any children so... I guess technically all of spring is spring break? I would love to enjoy the sunshine, go for walks, and sip sweet tea outdoors :)

3. Favorite Spring flower: My ALL TIME favorite are hibiscus flowers...

...but if I had to pick my favorite spring flower, I would pick tulips. They are so colorful and pretty! 

4. Do you have a garden?  I live in an apartment so I do not have a garden. I would love to have one though! I would ideally love to have a vegetable garden where I could grow my own tomatoes and green beans. 

5. If so, what do you grow. Nothing yet.

6. Do you do Spring cleaning? Not really, I don't really have a whole lot of things to need to go through a serious spring cleaning, but my apartment could definitly use some tidying up right now! oops...

7. What is your weather *really* like right now? {Just b/c it's "officially" spring, doesn't mean that it feels like it for some of you!) 
It is absolutely gorgeous here in Raleigh, NC!! The weather for the past week has been in the 70s and sunny, definitly flip flop weather! I can't to make it out to the beach in Wilmington, NC: 

8. Snapped any weather related photos lately? Share one with us! Unfortunately I have not taken any pictures lately! I'm slacking! But here's some pictures of sunny places I wish I were at to take pictures of! 
I actually took this picture last fall, in Coronado CA. Absolutely breathtaking!

Hawaii... how i long to visit you!

Bondi Beach Australia

9. What's your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon? I love to just sit and sunbathe, walk around the lake or go out on a boat, visit the beach whenever I can.. overall just relax and take it all in! 

10. Favorite TV show right now? Yikes... do I have to pick just one? Well I guess if I had to say my favorite show that is on tv RIGHT NOW, I would probably pick How I Met Your Mother

HOWEVER... if I could list all the shows that I'm loving right now, and shows that are not in season, I would have to add.. Lost, Two and a Half Men, FlashForward, Cougar Town, The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Dancing With the Stars, Project Runway, Dexter, Californication, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, One Tree Hill, King of Queens, Friends, Sex and the City (Always)... and I'm sure there are many many mroe. Needless to say I like TV ha! Anyway, that's it for my first Friend Making Monday! Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to making more blogging friends!

Oh, a girl after my own heart! :) I am a TV junkie to the core. I ♥ TV for some reason.

Your weather sounds a lot like ours. My girls were running around outside today in the sunshine, playing ball, flip flops & sun dresses. It's still chilly at night, but gorgeous during the day.

I want some of that tea up there too. :)

Happy Monday!

Ohh.... I forgot about the hibiscus.....that IS my all time favorite flower. If I had a tatto, that would be it!

Kelly Belly Full of Jelly said...

That tea looks absolutely delicious to me as well! I will have to try to find the recipe and post it for you all! Susan, I actually do have a tattoo of 3 hibiscus flowers and I absolutely love it! Thanks for all the comments!

Thanks for my mini-vacation this Friday, even if it was only in my dreams. :)
