Monthly Recap! April 2015

Posted May 1, 2015 by Wendy in recap, Uncategorized / 7 Comments



It’s May already! How did that happen! I spent almost all of April being sick. My 2nd cold of the year hit me end of March and I had literally one week being healthy in April before I got my 3rd cold of the year. Seriously, I’m over it. Cough, go away. (I’m starting to feel better but, ugh, it’s been pretty horrible.) Let’s hope May marks the month of being healthy! Here’s what’s been going on at the blog this month and an update on the challenges I’m participating in!

April in Review!

(what a drop off from last month! this month has been crazy busy and me being sick ALL month = couch and TV)

This month I failed. Major sad face! Being sick basically sidelined everything. My plan is to read TWO series in May to make up for it. 🙂

Favorite Things This Month:

It’s starting to feel like spring!!! We’ve had a few days that have just been gorgeous and I can’t wait for summer! We planted some various things in our garden and fingers crossed something grows? We planted peppers, a variety of tomatoes, basil, cucumber and carrots!

Weekend trip to go visit my sister and her family and spend time with my nephew and niece! (AND I will be an aunt x3 later this fall!!) It was lots of fun, even if my latest cold I got from the kids… And during the trip I also got to meet Kelly from Belle of the Literati for coffee! It was SO much fun to chat with her!

The Netflix show Daredevil — I am obsessed! Other TV that I have been enjoying is Dancing with the Stars! Have you been watching this season? My favorite is Ryker!

Getting organized with my new obsession of foxydoris!


Thanks to Hannah at So Obsessed With (here’s her post about foxydoris), I fell into a foxydori black hole but I love mine! I’m keeping a notebook for blogging notes and a planner in mine! I also started meal planning (this week was the first!) so we’ll see how that goes! Check in with me at the end of May 😉

That’s it for me for April! Hopefully May will bring healthiness and more reading! What have you been up to in April? Tell me your favorite reads or favorite thing that you did this month! Any new TV obsessions?

  1. I hope May will be better to you healthwise too! I am SO happy you loved Prisoner of Night and Fog too! This really makes me want to jump and down! Play On was such a great read. Definitely made me smile, even though I wished it were a bit steamier. LOL. TWO series this next month? You can so do it girl!

  2. Oh wow, I’m sorry you’re still not feeling 100%, man that sucks when you get sick and you just can’t shake it off, or you can and then get hit with something else D: Hopefully May will have you healthy as can be and then you can enjoy Spring properly! Yay for Harry Potter and eeep, I’m going to start Daredevil soon myself, I’ve heard nothing but good things, glad to see you’re hooked too 😀 Here’s to a wonderful (healthy) May! xx

  3. I’m so sorry you’ve been sick, lady! I hope May is better for you. <3
    So we read a lot of the same books lol. We need to do more buddy reads! And I can't wait to see what series you choose for this month. 🙂

  4. I hope you start feeling better this May! <3 Also, I'm so thrilled you got to meet Kelly! She's one of my favorite blogging people in the whole entire universe, and I think you've probably spent more time with her than I have 😉 Hope you have an awesome May to come!

  5. Cee

    Sending you cold-kicking energy!

    DAREDEVIL IS EVERYTHING. I watched the first four episodes in like 21 hours, and decided I was watching it too fast! It’s sooo addicting, but I gotta pace myself since there won’t be any new episodes until next year. (*WAILLLS*)

    I am tempted to get a FoxyDori, but indecision and money. I will sit in envy in the mean time. ;D

  6. I’m very curious about this whole foxidori thing. Everyone seems to be obsessed with them lately and they are very pretty, but they seem kind of pricey to me. Do you think they are worth the money?

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better! Hopefully you won’t get another cold all summer! 😀
