Make-A-List Monday April/May 2017

The month of APRIL was busy, busy, busy!

The weather in NJ is finally starting to feel warm but there has not been a whole lot of sun. 

We enjoyed the sun when we could...


 This was one of the most beautiful sunsets I had ever seen.  I took this picture in
 Kyle and Heather's neighborhood.


My hubby and I were treated by our DD Shea and future DSIL Ricky to a trip to NYC to see The Lion King.





We LOVED the show!!!

We celebrated Easter in April.  I will have lots of pictures in my next Awesome Adventures post but I wanted to share a picture of these beautiful flowers I received from JT and Kaela:



And speaking of my son, JT...he was honored by the Philadelphia Business Journal when he was named one of their Millennials to Watch in Banking.


JT also led a panel discussion on 

Leadership Development Through Sports
 hosted by his alma mater -
 The University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton Undergraduate Sports Business Club. 



 JT played two sports at Penn - Football & Baseball.  I believe he credits much of his success in his career to his experience playing collegiate sports.


I have taken up a new hobby in the month of April. 

 I have become a "Planner Babe."  Haha!

I purchased a Happy Planner from Michaels.  I have been having so much fun planning my weeks and decorating my planner.


Here are a few of my most recent weekly spreads:




I plan my appointment, errands, special events and cleaning schedule.  I get to play with colors and LOTS of STICKERS!!  What is not to like?  


This has not been a very productive month with my Quilting List.  I really only have a few pictures to share.  I'm hoping that May will bring more time to quilt.  



April
