End of March

Another month down.  Another random post! This year is just flying by already!  It's finally starting to warm up a little which is wonderful!  It's also kind of sad that I'm now saying that 50 degree weather is "warm" :)  I still miss the South, but I'm hoping that as the weather warms up I'll find some fun things to do to make me like this place a little bit more!  I can't wait to take Konnor to the parks in the afternoon and spend most of the days outside!  Now we just have to get rid of all the rain that has come with the warmer weather.  I'll take rain over snow at this point though!
Korey and I started doing the T25 workouts a couple weeks ago!  We love it!  It's wonderful to get my workout done in 25 minutes.  It gives me so much more time to do other things while Konnor is napping.  I'm also looking forward to being able to run outside again now that it is warmer and lighter out longer!  Korey and I also signed up for the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon in November.  I love this race.  My sister and I have run it twice before and it's my favorite half marathon so far.  I am a night person and the race is at night which is wonderful!  It's fun to run through the Disney parks at night and to have some nice food and wine afterwards :)  I feel like I need to start running right now so I'm prepared.  It will be November before we know it!  Since the race weekend is right around Konnor's birthday, we are going to spend the week in Disney and celebrate his second birthday!  I'm excited!  It's always nice to have trips to look forward to!
I've been reading a lot of books lately.  I've been using the Overdrive app to get library books on my phone which has been wonderful!  I read on my phone at night when Konnor wakes up and I was buying a lot of books for my Nook app so I would have something to read, and then I remembered that our library has a digital library also.  So now I can just get library books on my phone and not have to pay for them!  I love it!  I also still get actual books from the library every time I go there too.  It seems like every time I go I return one book and get two more!  Konnor also enjoys our trips to the library and most of the time it's a struggle to get him to leave!  They have a kids area with cars and trucks and I usually have to bribe him with food to get him to leave the library without having a melt down!  Hopefully some day he doesn't want to leave the library because of the books and not just the trucks :)
Some of the books I've read lately are: The Descendants, Divergent, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Gone Girl, and The First Phone Call from Heaven.  I really enjoyed all of them!  I'm glad I've made more time for reading books.  My list of books I want to read is always growing!
Konnor also enjoys listening to books.  Some of the ones we've been reading lately are: The Very Busy Spider, any of the Good Night Our World series of books, Oh My Gosh, Mrs. McNosh, and My Truck is Stuck.
A couple weekends ago we met up with our friends Tom and Julia in Delaware.  We hadn't seen them for a really long time.  It was great to get together again and catch up!  We went to the Dogfish Head Brewery for a tour and tasting and then walked along the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach.  The kids got to run around outside at the brewery and Konnor had a blast!  Tom and Julia have two wonderful children.  Their son was very well mannered and I hope some day that Konnor is just as well behaved and fun!  Their little girl is right around Konnor's age and she was adorable.  Of course now I want to have a little girl if we have another child :)  Hopefully we can get together with them again soon!

I don't really think we have any big  plans for April.  We are expecting some visitors which is always nice.  We're really excited that Jill is coming to visit us for Easter.  We haven't seen her since we left Charleston and we miss her!!  We might try and go on a day trip to D.C. while she is visiting!  I just hope that the weather is significantly warmer by then!
I think that's all for now.  Nothing too crazy or exciting.  I hope everyone has been staying warm and hopefully Spring and Summer weather will be here soon!
