Hi ya, fools!
 I suck at pranks so I'm not even going to attempt the "I'm pregnant" prank.
Happy April Fools' Day anyway!

Did you have a good Easter?
We enjoyed food and family....and food.
I also went on a bit of a shopping spree on Good Friday with my mom and sister.
I'm now on a 30-day, self-induced shopping hiatus. Woof.

Today, also marks a new challenge for me.
A 60-day, get-fit challenge. I'm waging war on my cellulite. 
I've been working out pretty consistently since October, but I eat like a garbage truck, so yeah, the celly isn't going away on these thunder thighs.
I've put together a weekly workout schedule {hello 6 a.m. workouts and even a couple two-a-days each week!}, and I have decided to cut some things out of my diet - like pop, sweets and fast food {yes, I'm counting Chipotle - pray for me!}.
I'm hoping this is the jump start my body needs to get ready to rock a bikini on vacation in June.
I'll share the dreaded progress photos at day 30 and day 60. And if it works, I'll share my workout schedule and eating habits. If it doesn't work, I'll give you the name of my lipo doc. Deal? Deal.

Now how's about a little weekend round up?

From top left by row:

1. Some shopping damage: 2 pairs of slacks, 1 dress and 1 belt from New York & Company; 2 skirts {on clearance}, 1 top and 1 pair of shoes from Target; 2 tops and 2 workout tops from Old Navy; and 4 tops from H&M. Not pictured: 3 pairs of earrings from Forever 21.

2. No bake energy bites.

3. Saturday style.

4. Keysocks came in the mail! Review coming soon.

5. Ava in her first bubble bath.
You can read about her adventures on my BIL's blog here. It's darling.

6. Cherry wine....interesting.

7. I curled my hair two days in a row this weekend...WHA??!!

8. Moxyn chillin' with me on Saturday afternoon.

9. Strawberry appetizer/dessert my sister made for Easter.
She made the recipe up herself {and made it to taste, hence the generic measurements} and it tasted like strawberry shortcake!

No Cake Strawberry Shortcake {or so I call it}:

4 oz cream cheese
2 big scoops of Cool Whip
1 scoop of powdered sugar
crushed Vanilla Wafers {she used these} or Graham Crackers

Mix cream cheese, Cool Whip and powdered sugar together.
Cut tops off and centers out of strawberries.
Stuff mixture into strawberries.
Sprinkle with Vanilla Wafers or Graham Crackers.

So easy. So delicious.
