Awesome April

I know it's technically still March, but in the spirit of doing what makes me happy, I'm kicking off April a day early.

There may be hard moments this month, but I'm determined to counter them with lighter ones as well. I want April to be awesome.

I appreciate the love and support, and the incredible community that has been created here - I want April to be awesome for you too!

Every Monday in April (shhh, we're cheating a little today, it's okay), I'm giving away something handmade and fabulous from an Etsy shop I've recently found.

Today is this hilarious tote bag from Emily McDowell. (Please excuse the quality of this photo - I was really tired when I took it and did not have the patience to turn on different lighting...or center it...or...)
Isn't it fabulous?

It could be yours my friend!

To enter this giveaway simply leave a comment telling me something you love to do - after all, you're a grown-ass lady. Extra points if you share this on Facebook or Twitter (you know I love to share handmade), but no extra entries. (It saves me from having to do a lot of math when I pick the winner).

Speaking of winner, they will be chosen this Thursday, April 3rd, at 10 PM (EST) and announced Friday morning. This means you have until 9:59 PM (EST) Thursday night to enter!

Happy (almost) April!

You can see more of Emily's hilarious creations in her Etsy shop, or on her website

I was not compensated for this giveaway - I bought this bag with my own money and am giving it away because I'm a grown-ass lady and I do what I want.

How fun! I love that you are giving something away every week - how generous of you! :) That bag makes me smile. Let's see, something I love to do - it's tough to choose. I love reading, running, traveling, knitting, and blogging! I hope that you have an awesome month of April. I'm a little bit anxious about my month but I hope it ends up being awesome. And whatever happens, I will meet my one year commitment on the 8th and have no more financial obligations to my company which will be an AWESOME feeling!

What a fun way to usher in spring. (Because, once the calendar turns to April, it has to be spring, right?!) Just because I'm a grown-ass woman, doesn't mean I have to behave like a grown-up woman (all the time at least), so I like giggling with Gavin over burps, farts and other otherwise funny bodily functions.

Very fun giveaway for a Monday morning! I think spring is going to be awesome for all of us. I know personally, I'm really looking forward to warmer temperatures and deck drinking. Despite being a grown-up ass lady I still prefer raw cookie dough to cooked, sleep in past 10 am when I can, drop the f-bomb more often than I should, and flip the bird to people who pull out in front me while driving. :-)

I love the bag! Such an adorable phrase and excellent motto :) Something that I love to do: read a book with the windows open! And take Jacks for long walks when it's sunny out. Explore the city in which I live with my awesome husband! That was three things but I figured I could tell you since I do what I want :)

This bag is awesome! And I love the prints in her shop - so fun!

Something I love to do, as a grown-ass lady, is reading. If I could spend entire weekends camped out on the couch devouring a trashy romance novel, that would be most ideal. :)

I love this bag! And something I love to do... um... is it ridiculous cheating if I go with the very general "spend time with friends"? I hadn't been with them for so long when I was living in NH & NJ, & to be back in DC amongst all these people I love is really incredible, & I'm so thankful for it & for them & for this place.
