Happy April! I am ready for some April Showers and warmer weather. April is a busy month for us as we celebrate my wedding anniversary, my daughter’s birthday, Passover and Easter. I am joining Anne and Jess once again for the monthly Currently link up. Make sure to join us next month, Wednesday May 3, when I co-host with Anne and we share what we are currently baking, listening, loving, planting and remembering! For April, here is what I’m currently:
Accomplishing – I am accomplishing lots of birthday planning. We are celebrating my daughter’s 11th birthday with the family on Easter. So, with some input from her, my husband and I are working on getting the menu finalized. She’s also having her friends party the weekend after. Since she’s a game lover, she’s having a Minute To Win It themed party with lots of games. There’s definitely lots of planning that needs to be finalized for this party.
Feeling – lucky. My husband and I just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary yesterday. While 13 may be considered an unlucky number to some, we are feeling very lucky. We have created a beautiful family and wonderful life together over these years and can’t wait to create lots more memories. To celebrate, my parents took us out to dinner this past weekend and we have a belated lunch date tomorrow!
Needing – to eat healthier. Spring is here! While I belong to the gym and have been taking lots of classes, I haven’t been the best about eating healthy. My husband and I have agreed that for the next few months, while eating at home we are going to make healthier choices. However, all bets are off when we go out! LOL!
Practicing – shopping restraint. It’s so easy to run into the store to buy something I need and come out with a bunch of other things that I didn’t! While I pride myself on being a bargain shopper and getting a good deal, we are trying to cut down on extraneous spending. So, I’ve really been trying to stick to the shopping list!
Pinning – lots of recipes, as usual, as well as NY focused travel pins. This summer I’m planning on taking the kids on some road trips around the state. Some of the stops include Albany, Niagara Falls, Lake George and the Catskill Mountains. Plus, lots of day trips around the area and NYC. I love living in NY state and it has so much to see and do. I figured this summer is a great time to explore the state before we venture out further in our travels.
