So what was the best thing that happened 
to you in April?


  1. i am so glad you finished on a high note! the best way to end a month, right? sending more knee prayers your way.

  2. I love your hair color! :) And your car's name made me crack up! (My car is named Felicity! Haha!)

  3. I'm strangely jealous of Ricky's hair. It's so delightfully wavy. Haha. Mine is half wavy, half not wavy, so it mostly just looks frizzy.

    My vacation was the best part of April. Which is probably a total cop out answer, because duh. Of course it was the best part.

  4. Your hair is so beautiful and healthy!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. What a month.
    1. I love Ricky's hair.
    2. Love the newborn pic. I rarely see those pics done with the dad.
    3. Why do you call your car Mile Ray Cyrus (sorry, had to ask).

  6. Such a good month! That newborn pic is gorgeous!

  7. My favorite thing ever is that your car is named Miley Ray Cyrus!!! I love that you closed out April with the half marathon. Doing it big!

  8. Your hair is gorgeous!! Stop hiding it!! :) I enjoyed your April run-down.

  9. Getting your hair done sounds way more fun than having a tooth fixed! And your hair looks awesome!!! We had 60 mph winds last week and it was seriously so scary!!! There is like a forest behind our fence line with SUPER tall trees and I was so scared one was going to snap in to our yard!

  10. April passed way too quickly for me ... I mean, wasn't it just March a couple weeks ago? I honestly can't remember much of what happened in April so I'm going to have to go with the KDF half as being my highlight. Where does the time go and how can it possibly pass at warp speed compared to how it went when I was a kid??

  11. I love this idea! It's so great to be able to look back at all your months and see the highs and lows! Yay for crossing the finish line to end the month!! xo, Kristina

  12. I don't know how you manaage such a fun recap every month, oh wait, that's right you have a fun life!

    Hair done > tooth problems!

    Can't wait to hear about the adventures May will bring you. May the fourth be with you hahaha

  13. How hilarious that your car's name is Miley Ray Cyrus. haha!

  14. I'm glad you had a pretty decent month :). I am still wanting to try lentil tacos.

  15. I read through some of these comments and just had to laugh because I know that I've commented several times before about the awesomeness of both yours and Ricky's hair. Do y'all ever get tired of the compliments??

  16. Phew, April was packed!! Your hair looks so good! It has an auburn tint to it and I may be slightly partial to reds ;)
