My Month in Numbers

I've always wanted to do one of these number posts and it finally came together this month!  

Here's what we were up to in APRIL:

20 Blog posts written, photographed, edited and commented on

2 Family road trips & 2 Work trips for Kevin

26lbs is Fletcher's current weight

4 Olive's birthday candle that made her cry because she wants to stay 3 forever

1 Babysitter & 1 Girl's night out

8 Voice mails this month

29 Days of giving cat medicine

2 Easter Bunny Sightings

3 Trips to the Children's Museum

23 Dinners cooked

2 Birthday Cards sent & 3 Trips to the Post Office

18 Thank you notes written

8 Plans with friends

6 Hour long stroller walks


1. Olive starts swimming lessons

2. Prep and plan for Olive's 4th birthday festivities

3. Host 2 dinners with friends at our house

4. Yard work - landscaping - buy plants for pots

5. Consign clothes - my clothes & kid clothes

6. Cut WAY back on candy - I love sweets of any kind - desserts, candy, etc.  So instead of saying no sweets, I'm being realistic and setting a goal of eating very little candy.  Baby steps - right??

7. Schedule some appointments I've been putting off

8. Paint/stain picnic tables

9. Participate in a 100 day challenge on recipes - more details to come on this next week!

10. Finish decorating all bedrooms.  We are getting close so I really want to hang pictures, decorate and then take some pictures to show the finished products.

What kinds of things are you working on this month??

  1. You guys had a great month!! Love the photo of Fletcher. His expression!! Great goals for May. I'll go ahead and plan to come over for dinner whenever you'd like. ;)

  2. What a great month friend. That was A LOT of voicemail. I usually don't even have one a month. Thank goodness, I really don't like checking, or leaving, voicemail. Can't wait to hear more about that challenge!!!

  3. 100 day recipe challenge--I'm intrigued!

  4. Ugh landscaping....I'm so tired of it! I wish I could snap my fingers and it would all be done haha! Good luck with y'all's landscaping!

  5. So fun! Loved this post. I can't wait to hear more about the 100 recipes thing. So sweet/sad about Olive's candle! Havah goes through that every year! We are heading to Seattle soon for a family reunion, and while we are there we will be celebrating Havah's birthday. I want to give all the relatives a heads up that she hates being told things like, "how did you get so old? I can't believe you're this big now," etc., but I don't want to hurt any feelings. Ahhh, girls, right? 😂

  6. Such a fun post Whitney!! You are a busy mama!! I love your goals- and can't wait to hear how Olive does in her swimming lessons!! :) Hope you have a great week friend!

  7. Can't wait to here more about that challenge.
    Looks like y'all had a great month!

  8. What a great month! Good luck on the candy! We sent a lot of ours out of the house today with May Baskets and I'm so thankful!

  9. Sounds like a busy April! Love that picture of Fletcher. Looks like he is mean mugging. :) Good luck to your May goals. I actually wrote some down for this month so I'm hoping I can stick to it.

  10. Cat medicine. I feel you there! If only we could make them understand why we have to get them meds.

  11. Yay, thanks for linking up- I love meeting new bloggers!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
