Did It Work???

You can see that it has and Lexi has been thrilled!! She planted the seeds here and this week look at them. She also got her hair cut shorter again. Shoulder length is the shortest I will let her go so that she can still put it up in a ponytail.

A visitor should be arriving in Oklahoma this weekend. I hope to show you on Monday who it is. Have a fabulous weekend!♥

Look at those seedlings!!! She has a green thumb for sure. Have a great weekend with your visitor.

tardevil said...

I think my daughter is going to do something like that for a science fair project - w/ Miracle Grow vs. not using any. Like the haircut. My daughter is also wanting to get her hair cut short for summer, but for the same reason, I don't want it too short. Have a great weekend!

mysteryhistorymom said...

Great job, Lexi! Such a sense of accomplishment! Her hair looks darling! Lori

rebel said...

Lexi is just too cute. Her hair looks great. Why do they always want to get it cut?
It looks like her plants are doing great and look at her, she is so proud!.
My Mom put out a huge garden every year (she had 5 kids) and she always gave me and my sister seeds so we could make a small garden of our own. I am still makin' gardens, so it's a good thing you are teachin' here.

mollyandmarshal said...

Yay! How fun! And I love Lexi's hair!

Angie said...

Looks like she did a great job with the seeds. She is a beautiful girl!

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

That is exciting! Is she on her spring break now? My daughter is. Today we are planning on making the clay pot bird bath...we better hurry before it starts raining again!

Lindsay-ann said...

What a doll she is....and look at those little seeds grow. That is so wonderful!!

I'm liking Eclipse a lot. I agree, they are all wonderful. Sis and I have already rented and watched Twilight. I think I should just buy the DVD and get it over with. LOL....

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Lexi is so adorable. I'm so glad her seeds sprouted...I would have hated to see her disappointed!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend with your visitor. Look forward to hearing about it!

Hi Darlene, Lexi reminds me so much of my granddaughter Ashley. Same blond hair and pretty face. I am so happy her flowers are growing. She looks so pleased with herself. I would be pleased too.

Your blessing is such a doll. Don't they have fun watching those plants grow? Can't wait to see who your visitor is.

That Lexi is quite a little gardener!! Maybe she can help me with the 'bulbs' I'm trying to 'force'---they look like they're croaking! :)

You did really good on that shopping trip---and I love Lexi's hair cut!

We're getting a cold rain that is supposed to turn to sleet and many inches of SNOW this afternoon--yuk!

Have a safe, warm and happy weekend. Dana

Marilyn said...

Hi Darlene. Thanks for the sweet comment on the cookies. I like your ideas. I thought about doing some in pink but didn't so outline would be good. I need to send you some! Hope you are having a good weekend. Stacy in Tulsa said it was snowing there---yikes! Just yucky rain and COLD here. I think we will get some sunshine tomorrow.

Ramona said...

Thank you Darlene...and guess what? I have always found that Lowe's has a better finial selection...also when you are there...check out the section where the blinds are sold and you will find more finials...have fun! I bet you will come up with totally cool ideas!

Ramona :)

How exciting for Lexi! What a cutie. I was about her age when I planted Sweetpea flowers one summer, it's such a thrill when those little seedling pop up.
Thank you the sweet comments about the shadowbox. I'm familiar with Bethany Lowe and the others...I get SO much inspiration by looking at their beautiful creations. I even spluged and bought a Nicole Sayer item last week. I'll have to post about it soon. : )
Have a good Sunday.

southern queen bee said...

Her hair is so cute. I am the same way,When I get my hair cut the first thing I say it has to fit in a ponytail. Can't wait to see who you guest will be.
