April Photo Dump

Monthly Photo Dumps are basically end-of-the-month entries where I dump photos that never get its own blog post or never make it to the ‘gram. They include little background stories and that’s about it. Years ago, I regularly made these posts to show what I’ve been up to the past month. So, photo dumps are making a comeback!

A National Parks Map

I got the biggest surprise in the mail last month – a package from Nat, all the way from Australia. She had a National Parks map mailed to our new apartment as a housewarming gift. I have yet to get a frame for it but I am so excited. Thinking this will go really well above the fireplace.

Saturday Farmers Market & A Quiet Place

We also were finally able to go to the Saturday Farmers Market in town! I’ve always enjoyed these markets because I believe it’s so important to support local businesses. Unfortunately, there was heavy rain the night before and in the afternoon that there were only a few stalls opened. Chris and I grubbed on some Lumpia Hut and strolled through. I wanted to buy some berries but they won’t be in season until mid-May.

Afterwards, we headed home and left again for lunch. I wanted Chinese food but the restaurant was closed so we grabbed some burgers from A&W (they’re so pricey – I ended up ordering from the kids menu) instead, then went to see A Quiet Place. The movie was so good!! It’s nice to see a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film. Also, I had never been in a theater so silent until that movie.

Food Photos, anyone?

This past month, when I went home to visit my family, I stopped by and grabbed some poke (it’s a traditional Hawaiian food served with raw fish, some toppings, sauces, rice). I was bummed because not only did my favorite poke raise their prices, their portions got smaller and it just tasted bland. Their presentation was still great but the taste seemed to go downhill, blah. Time to hunt for a new poke spot.

Also, we received a free pizza coupon for Blaze in the mail one day, so Chris and I obviously put that to good use! Fun fact – I hate meat on my pizza. I usually put a lot of mushrooms, onions, spinach, pineapples (yep, I’m one of those) and feta cheese, mmhhhm – the best way to enjoy a build-your-own pizza.

Can you guys believe it’s May already?! This year is breezing by so fast, and that both excites and scares me. How was your April? Tell me all about it!
