Hello Beautiful people. How are you? I’m doing good! I am not the wisest so for the whole month of April, I thought the month had 31 days. So I was waiting to do my monthly wrap up and then before I knew it, it was May 😂 So here’s my monthly wrap-up. 3 days late. But it’s fine. I’m going to try a new approach to my monthly update, and I’m going to do my top 10 favorites of the month! Let me know how you like it! Our stay-at-home-order got extended until MAY 31ST. I’m not happy but praying that God helps me accept staying home for another month and that the corona situation dies down. Anyways, onto my top ten favorites of April! They’re not listed in any certain way, I like them all the same. Well mainly anyways 😉
- The tulip fields:
We went to some local tulip fields and it was so fun! We went to Safeway and got ice cream, and then we went the tulip fields and walked around, picked flowers, and took a ton of cute photos. After the fields we went to the dollar store and bought ice-cream and chips and then we went and sat at the local lake and watched the water while we ate our snacks. It was a highlight of my month, we also went way over the top and got dressed up in pretty summer dresses and sandals and it was amazing. 10/10 recommend.
Since lockdown, I’ve had quite a bit of extra time so what better to work on than journaling?! I have a big announcement: I FINISHED MY FIRST BUJO!! I’ve been doing little daily spreads and journaling daily and it’s so nice. And I filled up my whole first bujo! Which makes me feel so accomplished, finishing a bullet journal takes me forever usually 😂 So I’ve now started my second bullet journal, so would you guys like an updated bullet journal tour? I would love to do one 😉
3. Writing letters:
I’ve been loving writing letters to all my friends and pen-pals. Getting stuff in the mail has been even more special now because I can’t see my friends and getting letters from them all make me so happy. I’ve also been enjoying making cute letters, adding cute little extras and such into them 🙂 It’s been a lot of fun though.
4. Apples with peanut butter and chocolate chips:
This has been my go to snack, IT IS SO GOOD. I absolutely love it. My sister was eating it one day and I decided to try it and I love it. It’s relatively healthy, as long as you go easy on the chocolate chips 😉 I just said I love it like 4 times, take my word, it’s delicious.
5. Our happy place:
My sister and I have been bored and we’ve also been wanting to make a cute, cozy letter writing area. So we were asking our parents where we could create our space and our final decision was the attic! We found an old sheet in the attic, hung it up, added some fairy lights for aesthetic-ness and shoved a truck over there for our “desk”. We also found a little mirror and hung up some cute signs we had and overall I think it turned out adorable! Anyways, we’ve been going up there and eating candy and writing letters, it’s quite cozy and fun 🙂
6. I signed up for drivers ed!!
I wanted to go to an actual class drivers ed but because of the whole corona situation, in person classes are canceled and instead, there’s zoom classes. My parents really wanted me to sign up for the zoom classes because we live far out and they didn’t want to drive me/with me into town 3 times a week and I finally consented because I want to learn how to drive. I’m partially terrified but I’m also super excited to get my permit and get on the roads. I’ll be safe, I promise 🙂
7. Phase ten is pretty awesome and fun or so I decided.
Being at home all the time has gave my siblings and I plenty of time to play some card games and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Phase ten is one of my favorites and also Liar is pretty fun. What’s you favorite card game?
8. NOT A HIGHLIGHT but we sold my pony, ginger.
I’ve had Ginger for a while but high school began taking up more of my time and I made the decision that I wanted to focus more on softball so last fall we decided to sell Ginger. My wonderful neighbor who taught me to ride helped find a good home for her and I think she’ll be happy and healthy there.
9. Wonderful weather:
During quarantine, we’ve had an amazing blessing: The weather has been so lovely. We’ve still had our rainy days but most of the weather has been sunshine-y and perfect and I LOVE IT.
10. Whipped coffee
ahhhhh a classic for quarantine. I’ve now made whipped coffee four times and when I tweak the recipe a bit, it comes out perfect. For some reason it hasn’t wanted to whip so I’m a bit mystified by that but its still good. This coffee in the picture was meant to be whipped but didn’t exactly come out like that It was so good tho ❤️
And there you have it!
My top ten highlights of April! All in all it was a pretty good month. Sure, quarantine bummed me out but I feel that I made the most of it and I’ve been enjoying it. How are you? Do you like this new “format”? How was April for you? Talk to me in the comments, it makes me happy 🙂 <3333
