What’s the buzz, beezus?
Well, I had the stunning realization the other day that one year ago, on April 1, I posted my first ever blog post. Yep, it marked the emergence of lil Whollybeezus into the blog-osphere! Gah. No April foolin’, my bitty beezy blog is one.year.old. Claps n’ snaps. And, now I have 66 posts under my belt [yes, I counted!]. Woo.
I’m over-the-moon happy that I’ve not only been able to keep my blog going this long, but have also continued to evolve it. New template, more [maybe better?] content ideas. Oh yeah. The day I switched over to a new template was hella scary. I held my breath, ek, crossed my fingers that I wouldn't accidentally lose all my existing content, and then I hit that transition button. Some things had to be rejiggered, but clearly it all worked out for the best. Maybe year two requires another new template. Mep, we'll see. I don't know if I can handle the stress!
Most importantly, I still enjoy writing my posts. Although my posting frequency might have slowed, by golly, I’m still writin! buzz, buzz.
Alright, so what’s on deck this month?
April is a busy bee time for this gal. For starters, the BF and I went home this past weekend to celebrate Easter with my [crazy] fam in Milwaukee. We brunched at the Shorewood River Club. [mom, dad, matt, shelby, john, zulay, zi, remy, keaton and I. woah, the whole crew!]
Then, afterwards, we went to my aunt and uncle's house for some more snacks [check out that delicious tower of treats!]. Easter baskets were exchanged. Of course. If you knew my mom, gifts + crafts of any kind is her jam. I'm on candy overload, but I'll never [EVER!] tire of those lil whopper eggs.
We gave miss Zi a dozen paper-mache eggs. When you crack them, confetti falls out. We tried to show her how to do it on Easter, but she was disinterested. Perplexed? Yes, maybe. Or perhaps too much Easter commotion!
The next day, while my mom was babysitting, they gave it another go and she seemed MUCH more into it. Adorbs. I could watch this video on repeat. Such a cutie.
Other things on deck … my birthday. Phew, I’m an old lady! Naw, just jokes. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m 29 … and feelin fine. Also, age is just a number. Cliche? Yes, 100%. But let me dig out my snapchat spectacles and then we'll talk. I'm truly a 16 year-old at heart. To celebrate my BF made reservations at Beatnik and I’m uber, duber excited.
And … trips! We have two trips coming up. The first to Charleston, SC, [for fun] and the second to Austin, TX [for a friend's wedding]. I've never been to either city so they will both be an adventure and I cannot wait! Blog posts to come.
Last but not least, I’m highly anticipating spring, then summer and lots of bike ridin’ on the lakeshore trail. Just last week I checked on my bike, White Lightning. She’s been in storage for 6 months, so it’s fair to say she's ready for some sunshine and warm weather too. Toot toot, beep beep! It's been WAY too long.
