April Showers Bring...

Birthday{we heart it}

MY BIRTHDAY MONTH!  (I bet you thought I was going to say May flowers.  Pssh please, I'm way too self-absorbed in my birthdayness to even think about May.)  In addition to my fabulous day of birth (April 12 if you're curious) here are a few other things I'm looking forward to about April...

Days where the temperature is above 50 degrees...
(Seriously, all you people frolicking in your sunny springness are borderline getting on my nerves.  We're still wearing coats in Chicago and I'm starting to get pretty peeved about it.)
Bright nails... 
(I kick started this one today with OPI's Dutch Tulips.  Love love love!)
Sunny evenings...
Picnic season...
(Yes, I've declared it an official season.)
Straw fedoras...
Anthropologie candles...
Leaving the porch door open in the evening...
Orange dreamsicles...
(Thanks Miranda!)
Dinners on the grill...
Jeweled flats...
The DVD release of the latest Harry Potter...
(yes, I realize this makes me a nerd, and I'm ok with that.)
Pedicures...
Birthday snail mail...
Patio happy hours...
(We've got our first one scheduled for Thursday, and I don't care how cold it is, we're sitting outside, dang it!)

What are YOU looking forward to about April?  Besides my birthday of course :)

April is my sister's birthday month, too. This year, I have an extra special reason to be excited for her birthday -- She and her husband get to find out the sex of my first niece or nephew on her birthday, and I can't wait! And by the end of this month, I'll be 4 weeks away from being full term in my own pregnancy ... So exciting. Springtime will forever make me think of babies!
