May Day Update

Happy May!

I cannot apologize enough, but really it had to be done.

Isn't May an awesome month? It's still spring, not quite summer, and there always seems to be something fun to look forward to! I decided I'd celebrate the first day of this glorious by updating you on a few things.

I got a new (to me) Macbook Pro! It is literally the best thing EVER! I love my pretty pink HP but I'm obsessed with this Macbook and I hope I keep it forever and ever! It's motivated me to write, blog, and Facebook stalk a lot more often!

Cheesin' so hard!


I got a raise at work! (Completely unrelated to the above mentioned new to me Macbook!) Now the princess and I can move to a bigger, nicer, (quieter) apartment!


I only read ONE book for the entire month of April (shameful)! Thankfully it was an awesome book by Gayle Forman called Just One Day and it ruined my entire life because it was so flipping amazing. Luckily, Gayle understood the trouble she caused and apologized accordingly when she signed my book.



The princess and I took a day trip to Mission San Juan Capistrano last weekend. The curriculum for most California fourth graders requires a mission project towards the end of the year. The princess has to build a replica of a mission and write a report, then give an oral presentation.  I'm helping her write the report and prepare the oral presentation, but since I'm horrible at anything crafty or mechanical, the mission building is all on her dad. (Snaps for co-parenting teamwork!)

I had never been to the mission before, so it was fun to get away for the day and experience something new with the princess.

I'm really looking forward to all the things I have coming up this month like get togethers with friends and family, doing a huge clutter purge of my entire apartment, and even a book signing here and there.

Oh and also, there's this anticipatory bit of deliciousness:



So what are you looking forward to this month?

  1. I think May is going to be quite a grand month! I am excited about a beach trip (maybe 2) and of course our boy Leo as Gatsby. IS IT NEXT WEEKEND YET?!

  4. Congrats on the raise!

    I am also excited about the Gatsby movie. Some friends and I are rereading the book and then we're going to go out to dinner after the movie and talk about it. Kind of like the Sex and the City movie...but not really ;)
