I just realized that I haven’t been able to post and update the blog in a LONG time! The month of April has gone by so quickly, but has been filled with lots of friends and family. Here’s a few pictures and updates for you:
My bestie from college came to visit! (More college friends are coming in June. I. CAN’T. WAIT!!!!)
Jenn and Alison
We went to John and Hilary’s house to hang out and made Lemon Drop Martini’s with fresh raspberries from my friend Rachel’s blog, We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook. SO GOOD!

I helped organize and clean out my mother-in-law’s storage building one Sunday. Along the way she told me precious stories about the family and showed me their treasures. My favorite: finding her wedding dress!
Greta’s wedding dress
Every spring, my cousins on my mother’s side get together to see a musical. My great-aunt Betty started this tradition years ago. This year, on the anniversary of her going to Heaven, we all went to see Wicked at Fair Park in Dallas. It was nothing less that spectacular. Honestly, I could go on and on about it, but I’m still slightly speechless at how incredible the cast was. Just……WOW!
Cousins at Wicked!
During tutoring, my student brought out a new book. I was a little stunned by it at first (was sort of dark on the cover of the book) but quickly I was reading through it with her. (She’s SUCH a joy to tutor, by the way. I will miss working with her during the summer months). Ghostopolis is a creative story about a boy who gets stuck in the Underworld. It’s written in comic strip form, which really appeals to my student. Cute story line! I’d recommend it to any 4th-6th graders, even some in Jr. High!
Did I mention that I know a published author?!?! Another best friend from college, Miranda Campbell, has been a great joy and influence in my life. She just published her first of hopefully many books, Missing Dad. I was excited to get her to sign my copy when I had lunch with her and Crystal (my best college roommate, ever!) in downtown McKinney last weekend. Go buy it! It’s great!
And then….there’s was a 1980’s Engagement Party for our friends Kyle & Jenn. Of COURSE we had to dress up! And boy-oh-boy, did we we dress to the 9’s. Don’t be jealous of my husband’s legs. I”ll let the picture speak for itself.
1980’s were great years for us!
So yeah! April was busy and fun! Can’t wait to see what May has in store for us!
