Spring Sensation!!!

On Friday I will only have ONE week of school left! is that not insane??? I think it is!! all those semesters, weeks, and days seem to have flown by. I am happy that it is almost over, its like a big relief. I have been scrambling around trying to 'finish up the year strong' as my teachers call it. My big speech is due next Friday and I am kind of nervous. One whole week to worry. O joy. Hopefully I will do alright! You can pray for me next Friday! ;)

I have been so excited about all the flowers blooming in our yard. Azaleas of every colour, lilacs, wisteria, (I know, I am not supposed to like wisteria.... It kills other plants and invades your yard... But...... It is so pretty!!! It sure does sound awfully mysterious,{the name} and secret garden-ish. ;) a snow. of little pink cherry blossoms, Dogwoods, and the trees are getting leaves! HIP HIP HOORAY!

Spring is marvelous.... Except for one little detail.... and it is...... POLLEN! oh the joy... ;) Right now everything seems to be covered with it. It was supposed to rain this week, (I was kind of hoping it wold. You know, to wash away the pollen!?~?) but it has been sunny. Which I am fine with.

On Saturday (????) my grandma came over and after eating at Kanes & Walkers we went over to my very favorite little gelato shop, called 'Cafe Gelato.' It is VERY tiny, but the lady who owns it makes all the gelato by hand. The store is cream sicle orange, and then she has accents of peach-y pink, and bright green. Very cute. The lady who owns it is from Sweden or something and she has this really neat accent. I just love accents..... She has delish flavors like-

Chocolate
kiwi
raspberry
blackberry
pear
biscotti
nutella
strawberry
lemon

And so much more......It is divine...... It is much better than ice cream... In every way possible... The texture, the flavor, the color.....Yummo! (As Rachel Ray would say!! he he....) I got Blackberry and chocolate. (or was it raspberry?;) My favorites.

While I am on the topic of sweet treats, my mom, sisters, and I went to a cute place down town called 'Wolfie's.' they serve some 'knock you dead custard!' I got a cheesecake milkshake. The girl serving it was so sweet and funny, (don't you just love it when the cashier/worker is nice to you? It really makes me want to go there more often.;) I believe she had been working there two days or something. Cute little place though. All different shades of orange. Pretty neat!

I have now discovered my very favorite dessert places-
  • Cafe Gelato
  • Kernel Kustards
  • Wolfie's
Some of you asked to see my prom dress. (that was two posts ago) I will post some pictures when I get the chance!
