Quick Pics

April has been a crazy month. It brought with it the end of my semester, and the end of a terrible class that took all of my might to get through. The good news is that I am finally done, and I will "officially" be graduated on May 10th, though I won't get my diploma in the mail until June. It also brought the start of my first full-time job in a library right after having to work a Saturday at my last job and then Easter Sunday. Both of the jobs I left were very good to me. At one I was surprised with cupcakes and a card. The other I was given a tiara, wand, and sash and made Library Princess, plus a dessert party. They also got me a necklace of a girl swinging to match my blog and my friend Jess made a card that everyone signed! All of my previous co-workers at both jobs are truly amazing and so sweet. :)



Easter was good and pretty low-key. We went to brunch and and then took naps. I had dyed eggs with my mom. We were supposed to do it with my niece, but she ended up not being able to come.  I wore a beautiful dress from Unique Vintage that Chris had gotten me for our anniversary. I will have a post about it soon!





I finished Insanity Max 30 this month! I think this is by far my favorite of the Insanity/BeachBody workouts. Insanity really worked, but I hated having to dedicate 40-70 minutes to a workout almost every day. T25 was nice because it was so short, but it was still too much to get through with no breaks. Insanity Max 30 is great because it's 30 minutes (with breaks!) 5 days a week, and it really works! Plus, I really just love Shaun T. I think he's great and he's not too intense or lame or in your face. He's encouraging without being annoying and obnoxious. I highly recommend it! I love being able to workout at home and not have to go to a gym. I also love these kinds of workouts because I need structure and I need to be told what to do to get the results I want. If I go to the gym, I can run on the treadmill or do the machines, but I'm not a pro and I don't know exactly what I should be doing (what weight, how many reps, what speeds/inclines etc.) for my body and goals. It's nice to have a schedule and to know you're definitely going to workout everything at different times.


I dyed my hair red, but it's pretty hard to tell unless I'm in the sun or in certain lights. I don't ever really want to dye my hair permanently or do anything where I have to bleach it and whatnot. I always want to be able to have my natural hair color without having to worry about growing it out and whatnot. I always do demi permanent dye when I color my hair. It washes out in about 3-4 months, so I get a change for a bit but still get to have my natural hair color back.


Chris got a new kitten! His name is Doogie Meowzer and he has extra He is very cute and very playful and energetic. He is always attacking toes and bags and toys and the other cats. He's got a lot of personality already!


I had a stomach bug last week, so I couldn't eat too much. By the time it was gone, I was ready to eat everything. I got a big ol' vanilla ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles. Some may say this is boring and plain, but I think it's a classic. :)


There have been a lot of festivals lately, now that the weather is nicer. We got to experience some grilled cheese food trucks and even a cannoli one too! I love springtime festivals. We got to be among the cherry blossoms and there's daffodils and tulips everywhere again. FINALLY.




Although it's definitely warmer, it still doesn't feel like it's consistently warm. It still gets pretty cold some nights and sometimes it's only in the 50s during the day. I am ready for 65+ every day! Bring it, May!
