Month in Review: April 2021

 
April is one of my favorite months because there's usually a lot going on and we start getting out of the house more after a long winter, and this month was no exception!
 
My birthday happened to fall on Easter this year, so we celebrated both at my mom's house, with a cake for my sister and me and an egg hunt for my niece!  We got our landscaping cleaned up, and I'm excited to get all our furniture out and planters full and hopefully have some people over soon!  Tom and I took my mom axe-throwing one Saturday afternoon - of course she and Tom were great at it while I did terrible!  Although, the first time I actually hit the board was for a bullseye, so that was fun.  I also went to my first real event in a long time - my cousin's wife's baby shower!  It was held at a restaurant that had kind of an indoor/outdoor room (one of the walls completely opened up), which I thought was a great compromise.  It was a beautiful shower and so nice to see some family members we haven't seen in a really long time.  Lastly, my blog turned 5 this month!  I can't believe it's been that long already.  Thank you to everyone for your kind words and for entering the giveaway - the winner has been notified and their prize has been ordered!

  1. Did you got to bury the hatchet or just hatchet throwing in general? I concept of a place where you drink and throw hatchets scares me a bit

  4. Sounds like a great month--and happy belated birthday! I have always wanted to try axe-throwing, haha, it sounds like fun. I'm so glad you're getting to do some more activities (and with people!), it is definitely nice to get to spend more time with family and out of the house. I hope this month is just as good, if not better!

  5. Happy birthday! I’ve seen axe-throwing, but I don’t know if I’m brave enough to try it. I have no athletic skill. I’d probably chop off someone’s head by accident. Have a great May!

  9. Well axe throwing is different! :) I have zero upper body strength so I'd probably be terrible at it. LOL

    1. Haha, it actually doesn't take that much strength to throw it, it's all in the technique!

  10. Oh my, now I really want to try axe throwing, though I'm sure I'd be terrible at it but at least it would be funny :D I also agree that April is nice because it's nice after a long winter. Also, happy belated birthday!
