Can anyone in the country believe that it’s April and our wedding is officially ONE YEAR AWAY this month!? It feels like yesterday that we got engaged and I’m sure the next year will fly by faster than I ever expected.
I had a brilliant March! I went on my first ever ski trip, caught up with friends old and new and spent lots of time with my family – it was a great month. And now I’m excited for some, hopefully, warmer weather and spending more time outdoors.
1. Discover Eindhoven
Next weekend, I’ll be jetting off to Eindhoven with my two blogging friends Lily and Erin for a weekend of exploring a new city. We’ve never been away before, but we all love travelling so much so it seemed like the perfect excuse. We booked the trip in the January sales and I can’t believe how fast it’s come round! I’ve been to Holland once before and loved it so I’ve got high hopes.
2. Try Something New At Vegan Fest
I’m all up for eating vegan where possible, so when I heard about the Manchester vegan festival, I asked my Mum straight away if she wanted to come with me (she’s also a veggie). It’s this Saturday and I’m really excited to try some new flavours dishes!
3. Enjoy The Next Come Dine With Me
This weekend will be the second Alphabet Come Dine With Me, which you must have heard me talk about by now. The letter is S and the country is Switzerland, which works well for me and chocolate and cheese are two of my favourite things. It’s also a great chance to catch up with my lovely friends.
4. Try Not To Be So Awkward In Front Of The Camera
This month, Jordan and I will be having our engagement photos done. We’re not having our wedding photographer for these ones, but instead, it will be my friend’s boyfriend who is trying to build his portfolio. I’m an awkward mess in front of the camera, so I hope that doesn’t come across in the pictures and we get some nice shots that I can share on here.
5. Catch Up With My Blogging Friends
Later in the month, I’ve got a brunch planned with some of my friends I’ve made through blogging. The place hasn’t been set yet, but I haven’t’ seen a lot of them since January so it will be a great way time to catch up with them all.
6. Cook More At Home
This last month we’ve been so good with coming up with new vegetarian recipes a few times a week. I’m getting more into cooking at home, especially when we’ve already invested in the ingredients, so I’m hoping we can come up with some more interesting creations for the next few weeks – maybe we can even take advantage of the warmer weather and eat in the garden!
I can’t say too much about this one as it’s a bit of surprise, but let’s just say that there is something in the month that I’m really looking forward to around the theme of a new arrival (not mine – this is not my pregnancy reveal!)
8. Celebrate Jordan’s New Job
Jordan starts his new job on the last day of April, and we’ve both got free calendars the weekend before he starts. I’d love to spend some quality time with him and get all excited about his new beginning.
9. Read More
I don’t know what it is about the lighter evenings making me want to cram more in, but at the moment I’ve been going to bed a bit later than usual which means I haven’t had the chance to read as much before bed. I’d like to try and finish two books by the end of the month, which doesn’t seem like a lot, but definitely doable.
10. Start Our Wedding Countdown
Next Friday (Friday 13th… take from that what you will) will be officially one month until I walk down the aisle and marry my best friend. I’ve got a couple of things I’d like to do to remember the weeks leading up to the wedding, and this month I want to get them kickstarted.
And there you have my April wishlist! Let’s hope I can achieve all of them by May!
What are you wishing for this month?
