Hello friends, I have to confess that I’ve been struggling with my project. It’s very hard to come up with something new EVERY SINGLE DAY – and expensive! But I’m not a quitter, so I will soldier on, but you’ll have to forgive me if some of my firsts are snore-worthy. If you’re not having fun reading about one, you can be assured that I probably didn’t have fun doing it. Also, I’m making a slight amendment (hey, it’s my project – I can manage it as goJ). If a first happens to me, through no effort on my part, I’m still claiming it! Plus, I haven’t heard many suggestions from my peanut gallery…hint, hint.
It’s been a wild couple of weeks for firsts. I’m starting to comprehend why LuAnn Cahn originally came up with the concept for her Year of Firsts – it truly is invigorating to try new things. I discovered fun modern day conveniences (April 10th and 16th) and experienced unique events (April 5th, 19th & 22nd). I learned some family history, mastered some new skills (April 14th and 18th) and confirmed a few long held suspicions that certain activities just aren’t for me (April 4th and 17th). If you missed the first two I Dare Allie installments, you can read about my dares by clicking the links at the bottom of the blog. For my latest adventures, continue reading.
April 1st, 2014 – I had my picture taken with the Easter Bunny. The kids and I were at the 12 Oaks Mall in Northville, MI when we ran into the Easter Bunny. The twins had their picture taken with him years ago, but I’d never captured an Easter Bunny moment with all four kids. Then I realized that I’d never had my picture taken with the famous bunny – a first was born.
