Monthly Mashup April




If April was a person, she would twirl around in an open field arms wide open welcoming spring with all her might. She would don Ray-Bans on the sunny days and pull up her Hunters when the spring showers rolled in. April would softly hum Colbie Caillat lyrics while getting a new coat of essie lilacism during her monthly spring pedi.
If April were a person, her Pinterest boards would burst with shorts and sandals and “perfect spring time” recipes galore. Her Instagram would be a compilation of blue skies and exploding floral colors mixed with #ootd of pastels and other springtime necessities—all exclaiming her excitement that it is finally spring.

If April was a person, she would be so over March’s “I-drank-too-much-during-spring-break-and-now-want-to-ram-my-head-into-a-wall-oh-wait-it’s-St.-Patrick’s-Day-let’s-do-it-again,” and would be ready for the things that I, Meg, am excited for in April…

          STAAR – This week (actually today and tomorrow) my kiddos are taking their big huge standardized test. I am so pumped to take the pressure off of some of them. If you think about it, say a little prayer for the kiddos across Texas taking this test.

       CRAWFISH – We are having a crawfish boil in a few weeks and I CANNOT WAIT. Ever since I started dating a Louisiana man these little buggers have had my heart—well, more accurately my stomach.  (p.s. read about my first crawfish experience here, trust me it is worth it.)

   I GET TO SEE MY FAMILY – We’re headed to San Antonio to spend some quality time with my mom and dad. My parents moved to South Carolina two years ago, and I know they cherish their Texas time with their kids (I am pretty sure their kids cherish it too!)

     NEW CAR – I am fairly certain I will end up with a new car this month (hopefully a Ford escape). Scary, exciting and more evidence that I am in fact an adult.

April! So lovely that spring is finally here! I am drooling over that SUV. I have to talk myself out of trading in my perfectly good car for one on an almost monthly basis. ;)

Sounds like a big month! New cars are the best - the ease of your mind from it breaking is so worth it. Have fun in my neck of the woods! San Antonio is lucky to have you!

Buying a car was the purchase that really made me feel like an adult. We bought two jeeps in one year!

GAH, standardized testing. Hope it goes well for your kids! We got our preliminary scores back yesterday, and I was pleasantly surprised. :)

Hi Meg! Just hopping around today and wanted to let you know that I'm hosting a Stella and Dot jewelry giveaway on Friday! It's my first one but wanted to give you the heads up. Hope you'll stop by then!

Leanne @ Simply Beautiful said...

I'm pretty sure I'll be ending up with a new car next month...or at least before the summer. Please do spill all of your car shopping secrets once the deed is done. I desperately need to know how to avoid being scammed by sketchy car salesmen.
