hellllloooooooooo april

hello april, so far you've been great! nice and sunny, lets try to keep it that way, can we? please? but seriously.....please?! i think i'm ready for summer and warmer weather and longer days that turn into nights. i'm over the rain and i know i probably shouldn't complain, i should just get over it considering where i choose to live. i usually don't mind the rain and "hot chocolate" weather (as i like to call it) but i'm extra excited for warmer weather. i want to be able to let milly explore the world around her without her getting completely soaked in the process. unless of course it's due to a splash pad or pool and we're in bathing suits....then by all means, dive right in! anyways....the picture below has absolutely nothing to do with this post, i just really like it.
^ this cuddle session lasted all of 30 seconds..... i'll take what i can get.

so it's april, we're already in month four of this year. i still can't believe it's april of 2014 and i have a one year old! life is good. this year: so far, so good. i'm doing ok with my personal goals for the year. i am way ahead on my reading goal and have averaged about two and half to three books a month. that's almost double my original goal. having a library due date really gets ya reading. you can't have late library books, that's 10 cents a day! 10 cents people! i will admit, i owe the library 30 cent's soooo...there's that, it's good to get that off my chest, phew! as far as my other goals, weeeeeeellllll. i'm having a hard time being 'good' about eating. i just finished a bowl of warm brownie with caramel sauce and ice cream, and it's not the first time that's happened this week. i really need to get back on track. i've hit a plateau in my weight loss and it's been a little discouraging. they aren't kidding when they say the last ten pounds are the hardest to loose. i'm thinking of taking up kick boxing or something. i need to switch it up because i'm at a stand still with running. crazy as it is, and i never thought i'd say this, but i think the ole bod is use to running and needs a change to kick back in gear. also, i need to stop eating warm brownies with ice cream..... that might help :)  and that brings us to my last goal: learning to crotchet. i've decided to put that on hold, at least until this summer. i just don't have the time or energy right now to learn something new and put the effort into it that it deserves as well as make me happy. 

in other news: i've recently been asked to help with a theatre production the youth of our church perform in the area and it's taking up most my spare time/nights. it's gonna be so good, the talent these kids have is unreal. i haven't really done anything with theatre since my freshman year of college unless you count being a spectator. i've been asked to be the assistant back stage manager and although it's taking up a lot of my time, it's well worth it and i love it. it's also a fun complement when people aren't sure if you're an adult or youth ;) i've had some kids ask to see my ID because they didn't believe me when i said i was 29 and had a one year old. (lets be honest, i still have a hard time believing the one year old part too....)

lastly, i've been working on a series of posters that i'm hoping to sell on etsy. i'd like to have a 'shop' opened in the next month with a handful of posters i've created and see where that goes. i'd love to just design posters for the rest of my life, so we'll see! i'm pretty excited about it and will share more when the time comes. 

so yea, lets see what april has in store.
 in the mean time, here's some pictures of the one person i give most my time too. 
life is goooooooood!
