We are one third of the way through this year? How is this possible? April flew by. Flew by! Here are the random things that happened in our lives this month. If you missed last month’s “Keepin’ It Real” post, you can find it here.
One of my most exciting random things that happened this month and nobody knew about except me was, Patrick Rothfuss and I posted about coins on the same day! What are the odds?
And, okay, his post is eloquent and sweet and meaningful. And, gosh, informative. And also slightly scary (because I have a copper sink! Argh!).
And my post is disturbing. Crude. Gross…
But hey, I’ll take it!
Speaking of my post, I do not know what I ended up doing with that dime. I put it somewhere safe.
This could be anywhere.
And quite possible how it ended up where it did in the first place.
Before I worry about that, I am hoping I simply slipped it into the good old American hiding place: my underwear drawer.
This could also be how it ended up where it did that day, as well.
We will probably never know.
But now that I have given you these two scenarios, I fear a repeat.
Only dime will tell.
I found a stack of Tory Burch shoes at Nordstrom Rack. None of them called my name, but I thought some of you ladies (or adventurous men) would like to see a giant pile of these discounted shoes!
This is what the aisle of Target looked like the night before Easter. Not a plastic egg to be found! But there were many frantic mommies and all you could hear was, “They have no eggs?! Where are the eggs?!”
I might have been part of the mass hysteria!
never pays off to be a procrastinator.
This is what our Easter baskets looked like.
My husband LOVES dying Easter Eggs. He tried two different methods with the kids this year, including shaving cream. He preferred the traditional method.
While we are on the subject of outfit outtakes, let’s delve into the nitty gritty. This outfit post for this picture won’t be up for awhile, but look at what happens when I try to leave the house?! In trying to take better outfit pictures, I spun myself right into a cactus on Monday! I think it would have been worse if dorky me hadn’t been trying to protect this bracelet. Who cares about a hand? The bracelet was not harmed. Whew!
And I didn’t even scream…or cry.
The photographer on the other hand?!
He might have flinched a little. ; )
Believe me, the outtakes for next month all ready have a funny picture!
Also, it makes the question, “You know you’re
crazy a blogger when?…” easier to answer. You know you’re a blogger when your first thought is not to pull out the needles sticking out of your skin but rather to take a picture of them!
My grandma used to make us buttered spinach noodles all of the time. And we loved them. I found fresh spinach noodles at the store and could not wait to feed this to my family. They did not like it… Yet! I am not giving up. I will keep making them. They are good for them. I think spinach noodles are delicious! How cool would this meal be on Saint Patrick’s Day?
Oh my gosh! Saint Patrick’s Day! I forgot to show you what I served that day in last month’s “Keepin’ It Real.” Green rice! This was much to my husband’s chagrin. I have a
bad awesome habit of dying random food fun colors. I like to make his life interesting. I may or may not have been wearing my denim maxi skirt at the time. ; )
Did you do anything fun in the month of April? Have you tried spinach noodles? Ever fallen in a cactus? Please share!
