I don't really enjoy cooking, but I think I actually like to bake. I made a couple things over the weekend, one being a lemon loaf. I'm not a huge fan of lemony desserts, but Billy is, so this one I made for him. Not that I haven't eaten my share - it turned out really good!

Not quite the same - no tie, since I wanted it more casual. But yeah, when I was searching for what kind of style I thought he should wear for the wedding, I came across that pic and thought it would be perfect. Thankfully he agreed!

Today's swatch is Essie Marshmallow. It's actually the color I wore on my fingernails for my wedding. I like it. It's a nice soft white. Even though Essie is easier to get ahold of now that they are sold at Walmart, I only have 2 - this and a light pink. Both seem kind of streaky at first, and then even out. Maybe I'll try another color one day.

New library books!
Here We Go Again by Betty White. I should have posted this yesterday, since it was her birthday.
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella. I actually have already finished this. It only took me 2 days. I liked it, it was fun.
Don't Look Down by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. My fun romance pick.
Lisey's Story by Stephen King. In the last King book, I found Hell Money. I think finding it in a Stephen King book made it kind of spooky.
Billy was with me on this trip, so he picked up a couple books for himself -

Two blue jays at the bird bath. And, yes, that's my halloween pumpkin still hanging around. Also hanging around is my pot of dianthus. I planted them last April! I need to plant some in the front garden this spring since don't really have to do much to take care of them.
My dad helped us cut this dead pine tree down last week.
There was a casualty - a scraggly peach tree.
I want to do something with this area. I'm not sure what. A fire pit? A picnic table? My deck is also blah, I didn't even feel like getting a pic of it. Looking at all these pictures makes me ready for spring. I'm ready to make my backyard pretty!

Even though I desperately wanted Velvet Bow for Christmas, the first polish I wore from the set was Twinkle Lights. I thought it would be sparkly and festive for the New Year. And, of course, let me say it before you do, I'm not a very good swatcher. Here is my attempt at swatching China Glaze Twinkle Lights -
