Already April and I Know and I Don’t–No. 9

     I know I just said this yesterday, but I am in shock that it is already April.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited about it, but WOW!  I’m sure that most of you have already noticed the new design…let me explain.  I really did love the old design, and I am still so grateful to Miss Pickle’s Design Studio for the incredible (free) character graphic, but I just thought it was time for a little spring cleaning. 
     Over the past few months Cupcakes and Candy Canes has grown about a billion times more than I ever thought it would, and I really think Miss Pickle’s fabulous design had a lot to do with it.  That being said everything needs a little sprucing up now and then.  I wanted to go with something a little cleaner and more streamlined.  I’m not quite ready to make the leap into getting a professionally designed blog, so I spent most of yesterday figuring this out, and I hope you like it!
     To go along with the new look, I’ll have plenty of new things to talk about in the next few months.  First (and most exciting), we’re setting the wedding date this week!  I know which date I want, but I’ll wait until it’s on the calendar before I go willy-nilly telling everyone.  Secondly, I have one month left of school…ONE MONTH.  I know everyone gets excited about the end of the year, but this is my last semester of classes.  When I come back to school in the fall, I’ll be student teaching…and graduating.  This does not seem possible to me.   Last but not least, I have a new job this summer, and I can’t wait to see how it pans out for me.  It’s still daycare, like always, but it’s not the one I’m used to.  I’m at a weird mix of excitement and nervousness.
     Y’all, I love April…a lot.  I know people don’t like it because it’s polleny and they have to think about taxes, but I loooooove it.  There’s just a ton to look forward to – Easter, my birthday (21), almost being done with school; it’s just pleasant.  I can’t wait to share all of these things with you.
     Before you go, please peek over at my right sidebar and check out my new April sponsors.  These ladies are so great, and I am so excited to be working with them this month.

     I had this entire thing written before I realized that I neglected to do and I Know and I Don’t last week!  You’ll just get to read two this week…again.

I know it’s April.
I don’t know how!

I know
about a ton of cute hairstyles.
I don’t know how to do any of them.

I know
I have one semester left of school.
I don’t know how it’s gone so fast.

I know
it’s a billion degree outside.
I don’t know what to wear.

I know
I should wash my car.
I don’t know what the purpose would be…it would be pollen green tomorrow.
