This, That, and Everything in Between- April 2018
Happy May everyone!
I cannot believe that it is already May, can you? Time is flying!
I actually had a project post planned for today and then as I went to write it, I realized that it was going to be the first Wednesday of the month and I had to share what we were up to in April!
April was a crazy whirlwind and was super busy, full of travel, and getting the house ready to be put on the market so I don’t have a ton of photos but we did have a good time.
April began with some Easter fun and the Easter bunny was a little sneaky this year and hid the girl’s baskets so they had to follow the clues to find them inside their tent in the basement.
They thought it was so fun but were so confused at why the bunny would hide their baskets instead of leaving them out like normal. hehe
After checking out the baskets and opening gifts from the grandparents, it was time for the egg hunt!
We had to do the hunt inside this year as it was chilly and crazy windy that day. The girls had a blast like normal and loved going through their eggs finding candy, money, and Shimmer and Shine Teeny Genies.
It was just our little family for Easter this year but it was a great day. We had some fun in the morning with baskets and the hunt, a yummy meal in the evening, and some family time.
We had a big snow at the beginning of the month and it was perfect packing snow! We didn’t get a lot of packing snow this year so the girls were so excited to be able to build a snowman. We got creative with our snowman and gave it some wild hair from some old flowers that were still in our garden and of course we had to give it a carrot nose.
Our little town got a fun new wine and bourbon place downtown so Travis and I snuck away for a few hours with some friends one Saturday night to check it out for a date night. Always a good to have fun with friends!
The second week of April, I ran away from all the house stuff to Utah for the SNAP Conference. I always love my time away at SNAP visiting and catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. I had a super awesome group of ladies for roommates and they made this SNAP one of my favorites!
Bad part about being away at SNAP was returning when a blizzard decided to run through our area!
My car was so buried I had to dig out to just reverse so I could leave the parking lot.
Then the snow cleared a bit and a few days later we got another big storm. This was literally 2 weeks ago and I couldn’t stand it. Our weather has now FINALLY decided to warm up and we are all in heaven!
After working our butts off on our house for a good month or more decluttering, cleaning, completely last minute projects, our house officially went on the market a week ago. And I am not going to lie, it pains me seeing this sign in our front yard. I am going to miss this house something fierce!! We’ve had out fair share of showings and even an offer but that didn’t work out so if someone wants an awesome house in Sparta, WI, here she is!!
The month ended with a quick visit from my sister. She has never come up to WI while we’ve lived here so she squeezed in a short trip before we left. We had a great time showing her the sights, doing some hiking, and exploring Fort McCoy. Always love getting some sister time and the girls were so thrilled she was here!
And that is all I have this month.
Travis went on a vacation right after I got back from SNAP with his best friends but other than that, nothing crazy happened. We’ve been so wrapped up in the house that we were a little too preoccupied to have a super grand time.
But April was still super fun!
See you next month with our May adventures!
