Spring has arrived! We have been spoiled with the most amazing weather lately, and even got a good thunderstorm in there too. I even got my first sunburn of the year already. It's a little bizarre, but I'm not complaining.
I haven't posted for a few weeks, and honestly, I have no good excuse. I guess I've been enjoying the transition to warmer weather (and good TV) like everyone else has. So I'm sure you're all dying to know what I've been up to lately...right? Here are a couple updates:
1. Two weekends ago I enjoyed a girls night out with Jess and Megan. We had a lot of fun, maybe a little too much, but it was a great time. And Jess and I even started the night with a bike ride, it was nice to get out there again.
2. I recently found a new guilty pleasure. Since Revenge took a hiatus from airing (starts again April 12, I think!), I had to find something else to watch on Netflix while Ryan was doing something else. I'm not going to lie, I never thought I'd watch another CW show, but dammit it's addicting.
3. I've started going to Church again. It has felt wonderful to go, I feel like that's definitely a big part of what I've been missing in my life. I'm currently "sampling" Churches if that's what you want to call it. Brooke is joining me on this quest to find a local Church to belong to, it's nice to have someone with the same goal in mind...even if we do end up choosing different Churches, we don't have to go for the first time alone.
4. This past weekend, we visited my sister and Brad in Cedar Rapids! We grilled out, went to a local bar, and enjoyed some conversation/played with Lucky on Friday night! Saturday morning, we went to the Arc March which was a short walk around the mall in support of the Arc in Cedar Rapids which provides programs for children and adults with special needs. After that, Grandma and Grandpa came down and we all went to the Amana Colonies for lunch!
This place was so cute, I can't believe I had never been there! We will definitely be going again this summer when we can spend more time there.
Lastly, check out this fabulous find! Can you tell what it is?
That's right! It's a cribbage board made in the shape of Iowa. It's on this beautiful wood. We found it at the wooden furniture shop in Amana. It's hanging on our wall now, but we will definitely be playing cribbage with it soon! :)
