in the last month

I'm so indebted to Dawn...constantly "borrowing" or "swiping" her posts...I especially like this one and I could not resist. Thank you Dawn for the great blogging ideas/prompts!

I guess these questions are reporting on the previous month's activity...let's see if I can remember that long ago.

1) Current candle scents:

Vanilla, which I hardly even light since it's getting warm outside now.

2) What I am reading this month:
I'm reading "The Zookeeper's Wife" by Diane Ackerman. It is book #3 in my goal of 30 books to read this summer. You can find my Summer reading list here. I'm about 1/3 into it now and well, it's been pretty sad & depressing, but then it is a story from the Holocaust era, so that is to be expected. The couple people who've mentioned that they have read it, have given it positive reviews, so I know there must be some good to come in the story. Oh wait...I messed up, I'm supposed to write about the book I read LAST month...there were two..."Dune Road" by Jane Green and "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.

3) Top three songs I was drawn to:
"A little more country than that" by Easton Corbin. "Smile" by Uncle Kracker. "Older" by Colbie Caillat.

4) Movies I saw:
None in the theater, that rarely happens. I did watch "The Blind Side" on iTunes rental which is a bit easier to manage with my current lifestyle.

5) Favorite TV moments of the month:
The moment I realized that I'm totally crushing on "Pete" from Private Practice...AKA Tim Daly!

6) Something yummy I made:
Milky Way Cookie Bars.

7) Restaurants where I ate:
Bravo...they have the best chopped salad ever! Yum!

8) Something I am thankful for:
That I'm the one that puts E to bed and even though some nights it can be rather frustrating, I wouldn't give it up for the world. I love the cuddling way too much.

9) A goal I had for this month:
To finish the semester with my sanity in tact.

10) This month I looked forward to:
Putting the semester behind me.

11) Something I want to remember about this month:
Our trip to VA for Easter. While country-life is so NOT for me (in the long term), I always enjoy the weekends we go there and the fact that I have a "sister" and we enjoy spending time together. We've made getting pedicures together sort of a ritual now. We are planning to learn canning together on our next trip up there, which is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.
