What I'm Looking Forward To
As we near the end of April, I realize I have so much to look forward to in May! Here are a few things that are coming up:
Haircut- I get bored with my hair easily and am constantly changing it. My natural color is blond, but I also really like going red. After growing it out and keeping it long for 2 years, it's finally time to chop it off. As of next Wednesday, I will be going from long and red to short and blond- perfect for summer!
Home for Mother’s Day- I'm trying to remember the last time I went home and can't. As close as I am to my family, it's hard to see them as often as I'd like since we live so far away. JD hasn't been able to take a real vacation since our honeymoon last year, which kind of hinders any travel plans. With him in the academy, he won't be able to make the trip with me, but I took a few vacation days to make it a long weekend. I actually think this will be the first Mother's Day I will be spending with my mom since I moved to NC. Long overdue!
Girls’ Beach Weekend- There are few things I love more than the beach, and even though I'm living in NC, it's still a few hours away, so I don't get to go as often as I'd like. This will be a much needed weekend away, with girls instead of police recruits, where we get to talk about things other than shooting guns and traffic stops, all while enjoying sun, sand, and blue water :)
Visit from my Sister- Not only am I going home in a few weeks, but my loving sister is coming to visit over Memorial Day weekend. I saw her over the holidays, but we had a lot of family in the house and things were pretty hectic. This will be the first time in a while that she and I will have good bonding time. I miss her dearly, like in a I-want-to-snuggle-up-in-bed-with-her kind of way, but I won't do that, mostly because she thinks it's creepy.
