Monday and Tuesday this week gave us an icy blast of winter.  My car doors were iced shut Monday morning and it was COLD out.   A bit of a bummer with all the lovely spring weather we have been enjoying, but it is only April and this is Montana.  Last year we had 4 inches of heavy wet snow Memorial Day weekend.

I love spring, it feel so good to start enjoying warmer weather and be able to unlayer the clothes and start feeling the sun shining on my arms and legs after having them bundled up all winter. 

Shine.  I seem to be in love with that word lately.  First it was this song by Florida Georgia Line.."Get your shine on"

Then I heard this one on the tv series Nashville

and this weekend I took my daughter to a movie and I was loving that the closing song of the movie was another "shine" song.

and recently the Handful girls put out a video, I think it really show them getting their shine on.  I love this company. They are going to be moving their manufacturing to the US and will be needing some help.

I think starting in May they will be doing a Kickstarter type campaign where you can preorder the orange and green bras.  I am so excited.  I am on a green obsession this year and I need that green bra.  Handfuls are pretty much all I wear, so I am pretty excited for new colors.  Handful helps me get my shine on. I have never felt as confident in any other bra as I do in this one.

Things that I feel like I either make me "shine"
being a mommy
my job, love being an OR nurse

What is your favorite word this year?
What makes you get your shine on?
