FF | Giveaway

Yeh for March!
I am so over the pink that consumes the whole month of February.
Bring on the green! The leprechauns! The shamrocks! Bring on St. Patrick's Day!
We have a lot on our plate over the next couple of months, but what I am looking forward to the most is the weather improving!
After all the snow, ice, and negative temps we have had I am smiling ear to ear hearing that we will have temps in the 50's next week! :)
That last sentence right there is definitely a favorite of the week!

We headed up north over the weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday.
While it was a super short visit, it is always a favorite of mine to get to see my family and watch X to get to play with my mom :)
 This was the peanut butter and chocolate fudge cake made for my mom. This was huge and just one of the many desserts!
See last year's cake here! This PB one was just about the same size! Nuts! lol!

Later that night we had dinner with friends on our way back home at one of my favorite places!
I seriously don't like my food to touch on my plate, but yet at Panini's  I can eat a sandwich that has roast beef, cheese, cole slaw and fries all in one! SO GOOD!

Signing up X for T-ball was another favorite moment this week!
I can't wait to see him out on the field!
I might be more excited than him :)

I picked up this shirt for X's spring pictures at school
Gingham is a favorite of mine :)
(I just wore one of my favorite gingham shirts here.)
He looked adorable (totally forgot to take a pic of him before school), and I can't wait to see how the pictures turn out!
And it is perfect for St. Patrick's Day (one my favorite holidays) and Easter!

I love getting to know other bloggers and truly becoming long distance friends.
Of my favorite North Carolina girls played 10 Questions with me yesterday for #ThinkingOutLoudThursdays
It was so fun getting to know Jenny better!
And you will be extremely jealous of the car her dad surprised her with!

And my final favorite for the week is all of you!
X-tremely V recently celebrated 2 years and I couldn't be happier to be a part of this blog world!
And to thank you all for being such wonderful readers and friends I am hosting a giveaway!

Grand prize is a $50 giftcard to Starbucks!
