Very Late April Wrap Up

Did you ever come home and realize that you've been so busy that every room in your house has become dirty? That’s pretty much how the whole month of April was for me. It was really busy, but it was also full of visiting with friends and other good things.

The month started with my friend Paige’s wedding. Paige and I have been besties since high school and I was so excited to be her maid of honor. Paige lives in San Francisco now, so it was great to spend time with her and other friends that I don’t get to see very often.

A couple of days after the wedding I spoke to the MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) group at North Monroe Baptist Church in Monroe, LA. Monroe is dear to me because my friends Megan and Emily both grew up there, and I can't begin to tell you the fun we've had there over the past ten years. The ladies in the group were really sweet and their meeting included the most excellent buffet of breakfast items, including a noteworthy breakfast sandwich that I have not stopped thinking about yet. They are an example to MOPs groups everywhere in the area of delicious refreshments.

I spoke using this microphone and I am pleased to report that I did not hit myself in the face.

My friend Susan made the trip with me and my friend Emily met us there. A personal low occurred when I was five minutes into driving us home and I felt my eyes start to close. We immediately stopped and switched drivers, thus poor Susan had to chauffeur me home. What would I do without friends like these?

During the month of April I was the guest blogger for Mississippi Women Bloggers. It was a challenge for me to write so much with everything else that was going on, but I think it was good for me and I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity. The month’s theme was Renew and if you didn’t read them yet I introduced myself and wrote about dealing with stress, the true meaning of home, comparison, using social media in a healthy way, and purpose.

The month of May got off to an excellent start this past weekend when I FINALLY got a new phone!

I got my old iphone 4 back in 2011 and I think it’s safe to say it was past time to upgrade. I can only equate my excitement to the time in 8th grade when I finally got satellite TV and could watch TRL in my very own living room. Do you have any suggestions for apps that I cannot live without? I haven’t been able to participate in app downloading for about a year and a half, therefore the most exciting one that I can think of is the Bank Plus app. Let me know what I've been missing.

I hope May has gotten off to a great start for you!
