So as much as I have made it totally clear that I wasn’t a fan of February, there were still a lot of pretty amazing moments too. Birthdays, a sweet baby girl, time spent with friend, and donuts… SO many donuts. In case you were unaware, donuts are my love language. I guess that might also explain why we are only a few
weeks days away from spring and I am terrified to try on my shorts 😕 … Moving on!
I swear y’all, no matter how hard I try to get these posts up sooner, I just can’t seem to do it. But I love them so much I keep on posting them anyways. Eventually I’ll figure out a way to get these posts published within the first week of the month. Really, I promise I will.
Let’s take a look at how October added up.
Happy Friday Eve!
Today’s post is nice, simple, and kind of late to the party. I am sharing what our August looked like according to the numbers. Yes, I do realize that it is now halfway through September but I didn’t want to skip another month. I love reflecting and recapping how all of the big and little things added up.

So yesterday I ended up scratching this post so I could share a great big piece of my heart and talk about hard things. I thought that was my last chance and this post just wouldn’t happen this month. But a last minute reschedule on sponsored content left me super happy that I hadn’t deleted this post from my drafts yet. #procrastinationwin

Things are extra chipper around here for a Monday. I REALLY don’t like Mondays. But, we had a great weekend of recovering from the craziness that May brought and it is finally VBS week. My girls have been looking forward to this week since the day last years ended in June 2015. It is definitely a summer highlight for us.

How was your weekend?
Bonus points if you answer with some kind of number. 🙂
My favorite way to recap a month is with a ‘My Month In Numbers’ post. They have quickly became some of my favorite posts to write and read. It is the perfect way to recap all the little and big things that make up your months and the host Deena from Shoes To Shiraz is awesome. Do you need any other reasons to join? I think not.
Here is a peek into what our April looked like…
Joy Rides in the 37: 8 (at least)
It is everyone’s favorite car and the girls are always BEGGING me to take it anytime we leave.
Co-op Fair projects completed: 2
By some miracle the girls got their projects finished in record time.
Eye Appointment for Emily: 4
With more already scheduled for May.
Iced coffees drank: 11
Iced coffee with Almond Joy creamer is my favorite.
Selfies taken on my phone: 16
Blog posts wrote: 21
Years of school Marissa completed: 4
It is clear to see my photography has greatly improved over the years.
Trips to the gym: 12
That number was disappointingly low for me but with some outdoor runs happening, it’s just going to go down a bit.
Chalk boards doodled: 4
Air filters changed: 1
And it took me less than 5 minutes.
Rounds fired: 320
Pretty sure that is a new record. Pew, pew!
School days completed: 21
And that is a wrap until August.
Pairs of glasses ordered: 1
They are adorable.
Times I cried: 30+?
Not gonna pretend. This was a ROUGH month for this mama.
Medals won: 1
So proud of Marissa and her second place 5K finish.
April was definitely a month full of unexpected surprises.
We are naively & prayerfully optimistic that May will be much less eventful.
How was your April?
