Time for May Flowers!

You know what they say: April showers bring May flowers!!! Though I am totally excited for flowers, there is a lot to look forward to this month and for the summer as well!

First of all, I am excited to begin running and training again and hopefully get in shape.  I ran 10 minutes at physical therapy yesterday, and it made me so super pumped to continue!! I am looking forward to walking/running the Pittsburgh half on Sunday! Smile  And to spread sweat pink love everywhere I go!

I am excited to travel.  Not only am I heading home for things (concerts, family time, etc), I am also heading to Assateague Island for a week just like every other summer.  And I am heading to California for the first time in my life!! Take me to August, please!!  I am so pumped for San Diego!

I am excited to meet the goals I have set for the summer.  Goal #1 is to read at least 15 books.  Considering my summer basically is right now, I don’t see this being too hard.  I also want to make at least 5 crafts or projects and update my resume to make my last semester of grad school a little less hectic.  I want to try all sorts of new recipes, too!

I am excited to babysit two of the cutest 10 year olds in the world.  I love spending time with kids, especially in the summer! There is so much to enjoy!


I am so happy that classes are over and there is so much to look forward to! I have a feeling that the next 4 months are going to be outstanding, and I am looking forward to every second of it!

What are you looking forward to?!

  21. Your summer sounds exciting! 15 books?!! My sister-n-law and you would get along perfectly. She loves to read! I recently picked up the Hunger Games series books and didn’t put them down until I was finished. It actually ignited a new passion to read in me! I am headed to South Dakato in exactly 38 days and cannot wait! πŸ™‚

    Seriously though, enjoy your break! you deserve it girl! πŸ™‚

  24. I’m looking forward to having 2 months off of work (I’m a high school teacher), with nothing on my daily agenda other than reading, swimming, and doing yoga. Or whatever else suits my fancy. Can’t wait!

    BTW – I just saw a billboard for San Diego as I was driving home today, and I was thinking about how gorgeous it is there. I’m excited for you!
