10 Reasons Why I'm Excited for April

April 2013

1. Spring break! This year, I will be spending my spring break laying by the beach if the weather permits. Fingers crossed for pleasant weather.
2. Pastel nail polish. Oh how I have missed my pastel nail polish this winter! April is the perfect month to break out my bottles of pastel purples and mint.
3. The weather (hopefully) will be warm enough for me to use my Polaroid camera. To use it the outside temperatures must be relatively warm. However, the spring weather should allow me to start snapping Polaroids.
4. Open toe sandals, here I come! My feet have been covered up all winter and are ready to come out again.
5. Prom. Do I really need an explanation for this one?
6. Straw hats and bathing suits. Ideal for wearing when lounging by the beach or lake.
7. Outdoor farmer's markets, flea markets and yard sales begin to pop up like crazy during April and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be attending many of them! Farmer's markets carry the freshest fruit and vegetables while flea markets and yard sales are the best place to find cheap, dorm d├ęcor (even if the pieces purchased need a little bit of DIY love).
8. Riding with my car windows down. I absolutely love riding with my windows down but it has recently been too cold for that. April should bring warmer weather to appease my need to drive with the windows down.
9. Scholarship notifications. Starting in April, I will begin to know if I won any of the scholarships that I have been continually applying for this year. I'm really hoping for some good news regarding scholarships!
10. Catching up on my reading as well as updating the playlists on my iPod over spring break. Any book or song suggestions?

What are you guys looking forward to in April?


  1. I love all of these!! Except #9, only cause I'm not in school anymore. Hee hee. I'll substitute that I'm happy for April because my son is turning 3! :) I really should break out my old Polaroid camera again! <3
