Things I'm looking forward to in April

1. Spring Break! It is finally here! A break from the children. And getting up early. Warm weather has finally arrived so its time to go shopping for some maxi skirts and shorts. There may be some boo time squeezed in there too ;)

2. Visit to Arizona. During my Spring Break I have the opportunity to visit the boo who is out in on the west coast for work. I lived in California for several years but only drove through Arizona on the move there. I'm so excited to travel there and go sight-seeing. Cross your fingers that I get to make it out to the Grand Canyon. That's all I've been telling A that I want to do so we shall see.

3. Dhyani Chapter Anniversary. Its been 8 years since I became a sister of my sorority, Mu Sigma Upsilon and 8 years since I helped create a chapter at my Alma mater UNC Charlotte. 8 years is QUITE a long time and now we are at 16 lovely ladies in our chapter. Its so awesome to see how much we have grown and all the women who have come into our family.

4. MARGARITA MARCH This is probably one of the coolest things I've found this year. As we all know I LOVE me some bar crawls (if there is a holiday most likely there is a bar crawl for it and most likely I am there!) so I was given the idea for this great thing called the DC Margarita March. Its a bar crawl with margaritas. Enough said. And even better its going to be a reunion for me and a few of my friends. Its also awesome that my parents live up there so of course they will be getting a visit as well. Stay tuned for a post and of course my Instagram will be filled.

5. Spring Break! I'm ready to sleep in and go out during the week!But I also need to do some housekeeping like Spring cleaning! A major overhaul is needed on my room!

6. Personal Training completion. I still haven't gotten a chance to put up any posts about my fitness journey, but I will soon. I signed up for a personal trainer in April 2014 and we are coming to a year. I only had a contract for that long but the progress I have made and the things that I have learned are amazing and I'm excited to be on my own in the gym to see how much further I can go!

7. Cheer Competition. Its year 2 of coaching my elementary schools cheerleading team and I have to say it has gone better than expected. We haven't had many basketball games to cheer at but sadly the season is almost over. The ladies are going to one more game and ending things with a cheer competition! I'm nervous for them but really excited to start choreographing. The end of the month should be interesting!

8. Blog Anniversary. The Bourgie Chronicles turns 3! Hopefully I will be able to celebrate with a new blog design. I'm thinking that I may just gift myself a paid design. Any takers? I've got some sweet color schemes that I want to do!

9. Parents Buying a House! This is a huge accomplishment for my parents! Since my dad is retiring from the Marine Corps its time for the parentals to settle down and stay put. This means getting a place of their own. Yesterday they signed the paperwork and finally had the keys in their hand (on April Fools Day!) They are already choosing paint and jotting down ideas. My mother has also gone Pinterest crazy and is excited for her own dressing room. I love decorating so I'm looking forward to helping her decorate this summer.

10. Spring Break! You don't understand how ready I am! I am still working some jobs (I need money) But Netflix is about to be my friend. I still need to finish Parenthood, watch season 3 of House of Cards, and maybe retry Breaking Bad. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Oh boy, I really miss having a spring break! I hope you do get a chance to go to the Grand Canyon. I've been once as a side trip from Vegas and I thought it was really amazing!
