No, my blog was not an april fools joke....

...though it may appear as if it was, please rest assured-it wasn't. Apparently, I think a blog is a better idea in theory, than in actual practice. I'm feeling inspired these days though, so chances are I may be turning over a new leaf.
Here's a little bit about my existence since April 1st.....
1. I graduated (and by that, i mean i went through a graduation ceremony, not actually received my masters degree)
2. I moved out of the lovely grimes family home into a house in hb. It is affectionately referred to as "sweet home alabama"(its on alabama street)....many hours are spent lounging on "club patio". After almost a month, I'm finally coming to terms with not waking up next to gaby.
3. I got a bike. I use it often and love it. Its kelly green.
4. I have decided to explore new sports in hopes to maybe be good at one of them...so far- surfing and golf (other suggestions are welcomed...actual instruction/coaching in your suggestion is even more appreciated)....success or lack there of these new hobbies are promised to be mentioned in future blogs, so i guess i'm committed to at least one more
5. I'm volunteering at rock harbor and am enjoying contributing and meeting new people
6. I have been told i am nesting....and i don't have a good come back because unfortunately, its true
7. For some reason, Lauren and I think spandex are appropriate for far too many occasions....we are working on where to draw the line because boundaries must be established
8. I became an owner of a kitchen aid
9. I try to get my fair share of vitamin d and expand my mind through literature on the sand at least twice a week...my hyper pigmentation hates me!
10. On a much heavier note, one of the most awful/best things that has happened to me in the past month is learning that there are 12 million orphans in africa due to hiv/aids alone! I'm devastated that A) i didnt already know this...i knew that the number was massive, but 12 million! i cant even wrap my mind around how many parentless children that is and B) i am devastated that its a reality of our world and that we don't do anything about it....more to come on this topic also. (i guess im committed to 2 more)
So, I guess blogging might not be so bad.....until next time......

emily it is good to see your second blog, i myslf am working on no. 2. as for a new "sport" i am a big fan of ping pong and i think that most people can do very well in this "sport". golf is much harder and requires more time and money of which i have none. as for biking, ummm today! the fourth is on friday and the cutlers and i are riding down for the fireworks and saturday/sunday is open for me. i would love to fill it with emily bike rides.

Way to go Em with the new post! No sport suggestions from me at this point but I would like to remind you that I was promised a day at the beach with you at some point in July. July is just about here so lets get it scheduled!

Em, I'm thinking about golf! Let's take a lesson together, and maybe I could skip the part about where I farted when I drove the ball off the tee at my last golf lesson. Still wanna go? LOL!
