What I Learned in May

Today, I am linking up with Emily Freeman  to share what I learned this month. This is the first time I have linked up and I am excited about this! I understand they can be silly or serious and mine will probably fall somewhere in between!

1. I learned how to make chocolate pie! I had never tried making a homemade pie before and not sure why I thought it would be so difficult, but it really wasn't that bad! It only took two tries and several calls to my mom :) I ended up using my grandmother's recipe which was kinda fun.

2. The last day of school is just as exciting if not more exciting when you are working in the school as when you were a student. This is the first time I have had a summer in years and I plan to enjoy every lazy minute of it. Here is a fun picture of the other awesome OTs that I work with.

3. Apparently golf is not my sport but I have a really sweet husband who still tells me that I am good even if I miss the ball completely 50% of the time. Golf can still be enjoyed watching your husband from the golf cart.

4. Drawing up house plans is a little more complicated than I thought. Who knew that you had to decide on things like vaulted ceilings from the get-go? I was just focused on getting the size closet I wanted ;) No, for real though, we are extremely blessed that my dad does things like this for a living and he has been such a major help! Don't know what we would do without both of our parents as a source of wisdom during these times.

Future home site! Coming 2015!

5. Finally, I learned that I am not Mrs. Brown Thumbs after all! Here is proof!

Yay! Can't wait to see what next month brings!


  1. Those flowers are beautiful! Way to go! I haven't had the guts to give gardening a shot yet, I fear I won't be as successful as you, haha! That pie looks absolutely delicious! So glad I found your blog through the link up! :)

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment! I used to think I couldn't grow anything either - I actually googled my plant type and how to care for it ha! I'm sure you could do it!
