April Showers-Spring Update/Catchup

Happy Spring!!

It is finally April and that means it's my birthday month! I usually take my birthday pretty seriously and try to celebrate all month long. :) I will be 25 this year--yikes! That is a quarter century old...*shiver*...but hey, maybe this age will impart some wisdom. I could use it, it has been a trying past couple of months. Nonetheless--it is Spring, a new season and a new outlook.

I have been itching for a new spring wardrobe but I am trying to budget my money better so I am doing my best to resist the urge to shop, extremely hard for most girls. I fill online shopping carts all day long and then begrudgingly exit out of the website before I can checkout. This routine makes me more and more upset every morning when I don't suddenly wake up a millionaire. If only every outfit I pinned on Pinterest just magically showed up in my closet when I got home from work, for free (ahh, a perfect world...)

Anyhoo--I just wanted to give you guys an update on the things I have going on. I have been spending a lot of time getting things together in my new condo still. I am currently working on getting my moving experience up for you guys and hopefully some pictures, even though it isn't fully decorated yet. SO hopefully I get it together soon.

I also had an idea for a new blog series called "Currently Obsessed" which is exactly what is sounds like. Short blog posts about things I am currently obsessing over at the moment. I might do it like a "Friday Favorites" kind of thing where I do a post each week. That is my goal, but I tend to stay obsessed with the same things for a while so I will have to mix it up a bit!

My amazing friend, Annie, and I are trying to learn more about the fundamentals of blogging and hopefully we will learn some good things and I can improve this blog and really get it going. I will keep you posted.

Until next time...
