April’s 3 New Things

April

It’s April Fool’s Day! This is actually one of my favorite “fake” holidays. I used to love pranking people all the time when I was a kid (and I was good at it too) and still think back fondly when April Fool’s Day rolls around. Almost every year I consider posting online that I’m pregnant (as a joke) but ultimately decide that it would be incredibly immature. But that’s what April Fool’s Day is all about!

But in all seriousness, March flew by and since we were gone for over half of the month I’m excited about all of the productivity that April will bring. I also am excited to share my 3 New Things this month:

  1. I’m going to jump back into painting. I started painting when I was a kid and actually was quite invested in it. I took private lessons, entered many competitions and can honestly say I never lost one (that’s my brag moment of the month). I want to start with acrylic since I focused so much on watercolor and oil before.¬†
  2. I’m determined to get better at using my Intuos4! I used it a bit last weekend while working on a project and I even felt myself improve after a few hours. I’m excited to search for some tutorials and tips. I also want to start using it when editing photos.
  3. I will master the grain-free waffle. First step: buy a waffle iron! I got a recipe from a friend last month and am sure Adam will be stoked when I finally prevail. Also, I most definitely will add some Jeni’s Ice Cream and make a sandwich.

Do you have any goals for April? It’s always such a great month weather-wise. I’m still not seeing any 60-degree temps in the upcoming forecast but I’m waiting patiently…

a CONSIDERATION

A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider: opinions, other articles on the internet, trying new experiences, and products you might like to buy.

    I seriously considered the fake pregnancy profile pic prank this morning, but it was mainly just to give my ex-fiance a heart attack, which I thought might not be in the spirit of the day. haha.

      Hehe great minds think alike. Although I think it would be way more work to promise it was a joke so I decided not to too. Hilarious.

    You are gonna love your intuos4 after you get the hang of it! I love mine, just bought their classic pen because I read that it’s a lot smaller and lighter.

      Yay!! Love hearing that, Vanessa! I’ll look into their classic pen later.

    I’m surprised you haven’t tried that waffle recipe yet :)
