Well April is here and in full swing! Easter is coming up and I’m rather excited about it. We’ve recently moved away from our family and friends and are alone this year. Well, not really alone – we were quickly adopted by our amazing neighbors in the spirit of good ‘ole fashioned southern sensibility (yes, I know I’m not in the south but they have that down home southern sensibility that I’ve grown to love and was raised with myself). The point really is that this is our first Easter where I’m taking care of things! We aren’t going to family’s house and don’t have to juggle the schedule of my in-laws, my parents, my sister and her hubby and their kids, which always works out well. This year I’m making the Ham, the dessert, all the fix-ins. I’m excited but kinda sad. I’m excited but also not because my house is still in “the ridiculousness” as I call it. Boxes everywhere, I have no table to eat at, and its frustrating! But I’m basically doing the unpacking by myself, while taking care of three kids, one of which is breastfeeding…so yeah, that’s some fun right there. But I’m going to try to make the best of it. It’s Phillip’s first Easter and boy I’m super excited about that. I’m such a succor for tradition. I hope your Easter is wonderful, whatever it is you might be doing, wherever you might be..whether near family or far ( like us ). I hope its a blessed one wherever you are.
Now, onto the fill-in!
1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?
Gosh, I think if one thing could have been different it would be to have my house magically be all unpacked and organized before Easter! Boy, ain’t that wishful thinking. Other than that, its been a pretty amazing and fun month.
2. What was your favorite thing that happened in March?
Seeing the Cherry Blossoms, going to Arlington, seeing the Washing Monument up close, attending church at the National Cathedral. I mean, the list goes on and on!
3. Check your phone… who was the last person you called and what is your favorite thing about them?
My mom!! we talk pretty much every day in some form or fashion. Yeah, she’s pretty awesome 🙂
4. If you were a crayon, what color would you be and why?
I’d probably be pink or purple, cuz I’m kinda a girl like that
5. What are you looking forward to in April?
I’m looking forward to be finally settled in and unpacked and semi-organized. I’m looking forward to more Ikea trips and settling into life here. Meeting new friends, finding a church, MOPs group and all that fun stuff! and of course, continuing the amazing sight seeing!
