Hello, Goodbye

I thought about trying to pull a fast one on my readers today- but since last year's post was a big success I figured I couldn't pull it off two years in a row ;) Happy APRIL- my favorite month of the year. My friend Allison used to do a fun link-up at the start of every month, saying Hello to new things and Goodbye to others. So even though she no longer does that, I thought it would be a fun prompt for today.

Hello, April... Goodbye, March. You were fun while you lasted ;)

Hello, Birthday Month, Hello turning 28 (!)... Goodbye to my money. (Okay, everyone gets to indulge a little bit with the birthday coupons that roll in, right?!) 



Hello, Baseball Season... Goodbye March Madness. Yes, there is still basketball to be played but I'll happily be welcoming in Opening Day with the Reds the day of the Championship game. (Next Monday!)

Hello to the great outdoors... Goodbye movies and Netflix all the time. I'm so glad the weather is warming up and Jared and I can get out more in the evenings. Frisbee golf, taking walks or just eating on the back deck- hooray!



Hello to possibly the first pedicure of the year, Goodbye ugly naked toes!

Hello flowers, Goodbye dead, brown yard. There are some daffodils that sprouted up overnight it seems like and I'm loving them. Now to get on that landscaping...



Hello April showers and thunderstorms, Goodbye power - at least once a week. (Our power seems to go out all the time in the Spring but usually just for short amounts of time) Gosh I love a good storm, though!

Hello to parties, birthdays, showers and weddings. Goodbye free time and boring weekends.
Throwback to my bridal shower- how that was FOUR years ago?!


Hello to my favorite time of year!! What are you saying Hi to this month?

  2. I definitely had to go check out your post from last year and I have to admit... it would have been pretty cool if it were true! We have so many Ohioians down here but I seem to be the only one representing Cincy! Yay for birthday month and warmer temps. Spring and fall used to be my favorite seasons up there. I used to love going to the zoo on the first really nice day! Happy Wednesday girl!!

  5. The first pedicure of the year?! I get pedicures year round. it's nice to do in the winter because who doesn't like soaking their feet in nice warm water when it's -30? Once my mom and I splurged for a hot stone pedicure, that was amazing! Happy birthday month!

  8. I am saying goodbye, rental house and hello, closing date and finally being settled in Colorado! Two of my kids have already said that April 23 (our closing date) is now their new favorite day of the year, even better than Christmas and their birthday. We are PUMPED!!!!!!

    Happy spring!

  12. Wooo birthday month! I'm ready for more outdoor activities, too! I can't wait to take advantage of the canal outside my apartment! It's been such a tease since December. I'm so beyond ready for the Reds to start their season. Enough basketball, enough! Also, flip-flop weather is the perfect excuse for a pedicure. Good thinking, friend. ;)

  17. YES to pedicures! Nothing says 'ready for the warm weather' like painted toenails! I can't decide if I should do bright or pastel for the next colors on mine...

  19. I am so ready for baseball! We are still holding out for Opening Day tickets. I'm just sad that it's going to be 80 degrees here today and we are leaving it for Cincy. However, looks like the weekend should be nice! Happy Birthday month!
