Lots of numbers, little sleep...

That has been my life these last two weeks that I have been absent from writing.  Well, it feels that way anyways.  My husband would probably laugh and say "yeah, right", as it has been a struggle for me to get up in the mornings lately.  I'm working on becoming a morning person - it's not easy, though!

However, the part about lots of numbers? Very true!  My goal for this week is to work somewhere between 60 and 70 hours.  We will see.  The nice thing is, it really makes the weeks go by quickly.  Before I know it, it will be time for birthdays, anniversaries, and sunshine!!

I've been trying to take advantage of my few hours at home to be productive.  Amazingly, I managed to get my Valentine's Day decorations down by the end of the month, and put together a new mantle for the month of March.  My goal was to utilize items that I already had at home as much as possible.  These included:

Green silicone cupcake holders

                                                                              Glass vases, fabric flowers and picture frame

 And a square mirror

I did pick up the pink vase filler and the green candles at Ikea.  Also - thank you to A Night Owl for the great Irish blessing printable.  In order to accent the pink vase filler and even out the coloring, I decided to reuse the pink vase I had painted for Valentines Day.  It is close to the same shade as some of the other pinks and balanced out the overall look.

I do have a little bit more to add (still to come).  If anybody finds other great "Spring Time Mantels", I'd love for you to share.  I'm always looking for inspiration and love to shine a light on fellow bloggers.

Well, it's off to bed in this house!  The morning is quickly approaching, I am afraid.  My goal: get up early enough to venture to the gym before work (which means 5 or 5:30)!!
