Traditionally I do not post on Tuesday’s because well it just messes with my blogger mojo, but since it is the last day of the month I am excited to link up with two of my favorite bloggers Katie & Becky for a fun Tuesday post! So lets take a quick look into the past and recap March in a hurry, along with some sweet treats that happened along the way.
March started in a hurry with the second of my sisters baby showers and lots of family time. While I loved my travels and visits home it was nice to take a break and spend time in Illinois and not in the car.
Brent & I have been taking some extra time to focus on US and spend a little more time together without the stress of wedding planning getting in the way. We have been working out together more and more & while in the past we have found it stressful and not so fun, we have recently found a good balance which is super nice!
I was also able to get out and do some running during the warmer weeks that we got around here. It was SO nice to get some extra fresh air, lace up my running shoes and put my metronome to good use. I am excited to start incorporating more running into my regular workout routine as the weather stabilizes.
We were treated with some sweet baby snuggles when our friends Chris & Kristina came to visit. I still cannot get over how small and sweet baby B was. I could honestly hold her all day, it helped significantly that she was less than 10pounds! AND all those baby snuggles made me that much more excited for my sister to pop out that little nugget for me to spoil rotten!
After all our traveling we definitely were not eating the best so we splurged on some supplements to kick start our spring cleaning. Brent had to stick to his old favorites of Optimum Nutrition, although I tried begged and pleaded for Advo Performance line, while I stocked up on my favorite AdvoCare products. There are SOOO many Advo products that I want to try but since $$ is tight going towards the wedding I have been sticking to my old faithfuls, that do the job GREAT!
Likely the biggest treat that we have given ourselves this month was the treat of our new gym membership!!!! We have officially gone to the new gym 4 times in the past 4 days with plans to go this morning once I press publish. Last night I tried out the Vinyasa yoga class and loved it!!! It was nice to take a “global” gym yoga class in a true studio with an instructor who did a great job. I will definitely be adding some of these yoga classes to my regular routine.
This month we also started our official WEDDING COUNT DOWN!!! I love this board & its fun/scary/stressful to take a day off every morning. I feel like I have a good handle on our wedding stuff but still each passing day I feel like I am missing something more. OH WELL at least we have a cute board 😉
Yesterday I finally cashed in on Brents promise to new dresses. After our weekend flop of dress buying I hit Woodfield after work to check out a couple places. I checked out a few items at Macy’s but didn’t love anything so I headed to my faithful friend Express. WHY didn’t I just go there first?!? I love Express and that I can almost always find something that fits and looks great on, I don’t always love the price tag but thankfully all dresses were ON SALE!! SCORE!
I found two dresses that I think will be great for the events that I have coming up this spring. Between these and the few in my closet I am feeling happier about my wardrobe options!
As it is the last day of march I hope that you can take some time to reflect on what this past month has given you and honor the treats in your life BIG & small!
