Good Monday Morning!
So many things to celebrate. First order of business is Happy Easter! I know I am a day late, but I truly hope that you all celebrated with laughs of joy and fun. I had a very eventful Easter that involved egg dying, tree trimming, coloring, candy, muffins and looking for my Easter Basket. Yes friends, I still do that. I wake up Easter morning and hunt for my Easter Basket to see what fun things I got this year. And once again, Mom the Easter bunny delivered. I will enjoy this week by having chocolate for breakfast, candy before and after all my meals, and a pop of a jellybean before bed (how old am I again?). Ah yes, this is bliss. I don’t think I will ever grow out of the excitement I feel at going home for holidays. I look forward to it each time and on my way home, think about how fun it was and that I can’t wait for the next one. So what if I am 26 years old and still eat myself sick with candy. It is worth it each time.

Next on the list is Happy April. Geeze. Can you guys believe it is already April. In one week I will be celebrating my year anniversary in the Bookstore. It seems like just yesterday, Cory and I were talking about if we should make the move or not. Time flies, friends. It surely does. May you be pranked and play your own jokes and have some fun on this day that is deemed April Fool’s Day. As for me, I will be playing no pranks because I myself was already pranked….by myself…kind of. Let’s just say that there was some miscommunication as 4:00 a.m. on this Fool’s day. I rolled out of bed, showered, had some coffee, and yelled at Cory to get up because we needed to leave a little after 5:00 for that start of his work day. Little did I know that he indeed didn’t have to work until 8:00. Here I am, dressed and ready for the day at 5:00 a.m. After I realized the mistake I did what any grown woman would do after she ate some chocolate for breakfast…. I went back to bed and stewed about in my work clothes for an hour and a half. Okay, so I wasn’t angry, just jealous that Cory was able to sleep longer than I was able to because I could have sworn he told me he had to be at work early today. Where does the fault lay? I believe it was Cory’s fault. He claims it was my inattention to him when he talks. We shall never know friends (even though I know I am right). As a sidenote, did you know that April Fool’s Day was started by kids in France tacking paper Fish on the back of people and yelling “April Fish!”

Next on the list is this weekend. Okay okay. I know it is only Monday, but I can’t help but be excited for this weekend. This weekend is my first race of the season and it is a pretty awesome one. Not only is the weather shaping up to be great running weather, it is also a race filled with chocolate (hmmmm. By this post, one wouldn’t believe I am not a big fan of chocolate).  Yes. Chocolate. It is called the Chocoholic Frolic. Instead of protein bars, you get chocolate. No water stations here, just chocolate fountains. And the race is around a beautiful lake in Minneapolis. Ahhh sweet success. On Friday, I will be off to the Mall of America to hang out until my friend gets done with work. The night before will include a pre-race supper, some Yoga (yay!!! I finally am going to learn how to do Yoga. 30/30 list is going to go down by one more!), and must needed friend time. Saturday is race time and I can’t wait! It’s been a long time since I have been this excited for a race and even though my training has been slacking, I still think it will be a great time. I am ready to get outside! After the race, I am going to head home and pack for a weeklong conference for work (is it weird if I am looking forward to this also?) Throw in a birthday and a moving weekend (for my sister), April is shaping up to be one busy month for me but I am looking forward to it.

Well friends, that is all I have for the time being. I hope you all enjoy this day of tomfooleries. May the fools be all the wiser and the wise take part in today’s shenanigans and show their mischievous side.
Cheers Friends!
