…bring May flowers. I woke up to an unpleasant spring thunderstorm, and I just kept thinking, “It’s worth it. It’s worth it.” Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a nice seasonal rain every now and then, but I love starting out my week with sunshine. If I had to pick, I’d take the April rain and May blooms over a sunny Monday any day.

I’m obsessively mad about stripes. I actually have to space out my stripe wear throughout the week to make sure I don’t overdose my coworkers. Horizontal, vertical, skinny, thick, zig-zag — you can’t go wrong. And there’s nothing quite like a lovely nautical stripe to prep for loungy beach days.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know this holiday is typically an emerald green kind of day, but I decided to go with something that feels a little more peppy. Chartreuse may be a nontraditional St. Paddy’s Day shade of green, but it sure puts a spring in my step.

I can’t fully say spring has sprung here at HGTV Headquarters, but we had some pretty incredible spring-like weather over the weekend. And with Plant a Flower Day coming up on Wednesday, the timing couldn’t be better. Yahoo web trend expert Lauren Whitehouse said users are already searching for spring flowers, and some of the top-searched picks  are everything from sunflowers and carnations to lilies and irises. Clearly you can see where my inspiration for today’s board came from.

Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for this spring is drool-worthy. From Placid Blue and Paloma to Dazzling Blue, I was — well — dazzled. My favorite, however, is Hemlock. It’s a more subdued version of mint green and the perfect spring-inspired hue. Pantone says, “Similar to the verdant shade of springtime foliage, Hemlock, a summery, ornamental green, provides a decorative touch that’s very different from the greens of recent seasons.” What’s your take on this versatile pastel?

Mardi Gras is next Tuesday, March 4, so now’s the time to make your way to the Big Easy to catch the most popular parades before Fat Tuesday. And if you can’t make it down to New Orleans this year, then I can almost guarantee your city will have a sampling of Bourbon Street in celebration. Joyeux Mardi Gras!

We celebrate the third Monday of February each year, known as President’s Day, to honor George Washington, the first president of the United States. (February 22 is George’s actual birthday, though.) Across the country we use this day to celebrate and remember all of our nation’s presidents, including Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday also falls in the month of February. Happy birthday, Abe and George!

(I’ll happily take all of the below to add to my vintage presidential collection.)

As of today, the U.S. has received five medals (two gold and three bronze) at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. We rocked it at alpine skiing, figure skating, freestyle skiing and snowboarding. We have 13 more days to keep bringing those medals home!

Did anyone everyone watch the Super Bowl last night? What a blowout! Sorry, Broncos fans. While I could have made some enemies by doing a Seahawk-inspired board (bright green, blue and silver!), I decided to go with something a little more neutral. I think we can ALL agree Super Bowl halftime performer Bruno Mars killed it last night in his Elvis-style Saint Laurent gold blazer while pulling out James Brown-esque dance moves. This is for you, Bruno.

To be completely honest with you, my inspiration for today’s Mood Board Monday comes from an egg, cheese and avocado bagel sandwich I had over the weekend. It was my idea of breakfast Heaven. Now, I can’t stop thinking of my next avocado adventure…
