Anything Goes Linky # 147, Spring Inspired Features, And Feeling Great Post Surgery

Grab code from right side bar please. 

Proof cell phones should be taken away after administering Xanax, LOL. This was me prior to my surgery on Tuesday, taking a silly selfie. One of the lumps was harder to find, so I had to have a wire inserted prior to surgery to help locate it, which is why they gave me Xanax. They ended up finding 2 more lumps during surgery, removing a total of 4 from one breast, and 1 from the other. I won't have biopsy results back until the first, but I am thrilled to say my doctor believes all 5 look benign!!! I was finally able to breath a big sigh of relief. I will let you all know at the next party when those results are confirmed. I want to thank you all for helping me get through these last few weeks, that have been very draining on me. All your sweet comments and inspiring posts have helped keep me positive, and my mind busy. Big bacon hugs for all of you.

Now for some Spring inspired features:

How about some Spring cleaning starting with your craft supplies. Crafty Lumberjacks shared this great craft box face lift.

I need to fill my size 11 boots with flowers, and put them by the front door. What an easy and affordable decorating idea. Find more Spring Decor  inspiration at Forever Decorating. 

Have you made a Spring wreath yet? Find inspiration from  this blue yarn wreath shared by At Home With Jemma. 

Features wouldn't be complete without something sweet. These Spring butterfly cupcakes look easy and delicious, thanks for sharing Optimistic Mommy. 

And now it's time to party!

  37. Hi, Mindie. I'm so glad everything went relatively well with your surgery. The Xanax selfie was a nice way to bring a little levity to the whole awful thing. I hope you get all great news when the results are back in a few weeks. Great to know that your surgeon has high hopes for it.
