April Showers bring...My Birthday, a New Training Plan, and Busy Weekends

March came in like a lion and out like a...bigger, crankier lion. No more cold, Mother Nature! I think I speak for most when I say we are ready for these warmer temps to stick around.

This month is going to be fun. I have plans every weekend--my birthday, the spring game for our beloved Georgia Bulldogs, visiting with a lovely friend and seeing Divergent (have you read those books? If you haven't, you should!), starting a new training plan (more about that soon!) and a couple of races thrown in the mix. I'm thinking about the Run Like Heck 5k in historic Oakland Cemetery (appealing because it's really close to my house!), and trying to decide between the Tybee Turtle Trot and The Biggest Loser 10k at Six Flags Over Georgia.  Tybee is a bit of a hike from home, but it would be fun to cap off the month with a mini break at the beach.

Here are my goals for the month:

I'm going to make good memories by...Doing some fun spring activities with my Little man. We're going to dye Easter eggs, plant an indoor herb garden, and check out the blooms at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
I'm going to focus on...Organizing my writing. I have papers and notebooks everywhere. How can a girl sit down to finish a story with that kind of clutter?
I'm going to do good by...Donating Easter goodies to kids in need. How fun will those be to make?

A penny for your thoughts: what are you doing this month that is fun?


  1. SPRING BREAK...if it ever arrives. It has taken forever to get here. Also focusing on my workouts..which have been lacking and my diet which has been full of junk. New month new start. Happy Spring! I might do Biggest Loser too, trying to decide if it fits the schedule....we are super busy the rest of the school year!

  2. Happy Birthday Month!
    Right now, I'm just looking forward to spring break next week. I have a lot of things planned. I actually wrote out a list yesterday. Who knows what I'll get to, but March has been so busy that I feel like everything has fallen behind and I need to catch up.

    1. Good luck with your list! Make sure you relax a little on your break :)

  3. I think we are going to hand out Easter eggs to strangers downtown (or maybe the mall if weather is bad) =)
