Month in Review: March 2013

I can't believe it is April already. The countdown is on to my vacation to Aruba - two weeks from tomorrow I will be sitting on the sunny beach with a pile of books with me (both print and e-copy). Oh how I can't wait for so much uninterrupted reading time!!!

My crocheting is keeping me busy - I finished the blanket for my newest niece, Keagan, and finally had the chance to meet her this past weekend. I also ended up making a little doll blanket for my niece Addison and it was a huge hit! Now I'm working on two more blankets and will soon have a third to add to the queue once my sister has her baby next weekend! 

Here are my reading stats for March!
