Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Can't wait for Spring and Outdoor Relaxing

This post brought to you by Pier 1. All opinions are 100% mine.

Can't wait for SpringWe had a couple glimpses of warm weather last week.  While we are still fortunate to have 50 degree weather while other places are still getting snow, having it in the high 70s one day and barely above 30 the next... and then repeating for several days, makes it very hard to figure out what to wear and depressing for those of us who are ready for Spring.

I love Spring almost as much as I love Fall.  The temperature is perfect for outdoors fun and relaxing.  We take our weekend happy hours outside to the porch instead of inside by the fire place.  I dream of setting up a backyard oasis for the grown ups.  The kids will have their pool and umbrellas with colorful mats but I want a gazebo filled with furniture and cozy cushions and pillows.  Someday, I will have one.  Pier 1  will help me fill it with color.

I'm drooling over their outdoor furniture but know that it is unrealistic to spend that kind of money right now.  Their accents (cushions, pillows, yard decor and accessories) ARE within my budget and our wrought iron table and chairs are ready for some sprucing up.  Here's a couple things I've spotted so far...


Everyone needs a colorful beverage tub. 

LOVE these lanterns.    Can you feel the party atmosphere?

Pretty blue cushions for hours of sitting and watching the kids play.


These are for the flower beds in the front yard to, hopefully, distract the young ones AWAY from the flowers. 

Make sure to sign up for the Pier 1 Outdoor newsletter to find out about all the new additions.

I know some people have bad allergies and Spring and Summer bring on a misery of ailments keeping them from enjoying the outdoors.  Thankfully we don't suffer from any.  We love to be outdoors as much as possible once the warm weather hits... and stays.

To kick off Spring, there are several Pier 1 Tweetups scheduled in the next couple weeks.  You can meet up with some of your local bloggers and Tweeters and have some fun.  Here's some dates and locations:

Orlando: March 9th

Dallas: March 22nd

Atlanta: April 5th

NYC: April 20th

Stop by and say HI.

So.  Do you get excited by Spring?  Do you enjoying lounging outside?  What's your dream outdoor space?
