Happy Monday Friends! We had a great weekend with lots of relaxing and a date night, which was so nice. Dave got tickets for us to see Ragtime at his school, which is my FAVORITE musical ever. There was a lot of "don't cry! don't cry" moments for me. 

This month has been weird (as usual), which is made worse by the short month that is February. The first months of the year have never been my favorite, so it doesn't surprise me.

I have been working a lot on self-love and self-improvement, which you will see a little bit in the post below. I spend a lot of time being frustrated and annoyed with people, and came to realize that I need to take my own advice, and "DO YOU." Stop worrying about everyone else, and focus on what you can do to make things nicer, happier, and better. 

Currently, I'm...
Reading: Right now I'm finishing up the fourth book in the Gender Game Series, and The One I Was by Eliza Graham. I had book club last night, and we decided to read The Circle by Dave Eggers for March. That one has been on my list since I saw that it is coming out as a movie, starring Emma Watson!

Pinning: A little bit of this, and a little bit of that. I've recently started bullet journaling (sort of), so I've been turning to Pinterest for some inspiration. Also lots of healthy recipes. And since it's March, I thought I'd share my most-pinned pin of all time, which hilariously is a Jello shot recipe!

Munching On: I'm trying to be really healthy lately! I gained a bit of weight after the wedding (you know... moving, new job, new medications, etc), so I'm trying to keep that in check. I am a little bit of a creature of habit, so every weekend I prep salads and overnight oats for the next week. Dave is usually in charge of making dinners, but this week I made some skinny tortilla soup in the crock pot. The fact that I did all the cooking this week is basically a miracle.

Working On: Paying off my stupid hearing aids. I've had them for a year now, and I'm ready to be done paying them off. I jokingly refer to them as our most expensive procession, but really, they basically are. #overit

Laughing At: Remember when I told you last month about my freaking hilarious Valentine's Day gift that I got for Dave? Well I'm still laughing at it.

Trying Out: A bunch of new recipes, including some crock pot ones! I made fried pickles last night for book club (which were awesome), made some delicious chicken tortilla soup last night, and have a plan to make some soup from scratch next week.

Normally I am not a cook AT ALL, so when I was telling my mom all the stuff I have been cooking, I realized that I have basically lost my damn mind. Who is this person who LIKES to cook?

Craving: Ice cream. It has been so warm out lately that all I want at the end of the day is some ice cream. We tried Halo Top for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and I'm hooked. They were on sale at the grocery store this weekend, so I bought three pints. #noselfcontrol

Wearing: I recently got a bunch of new pieces from my aunt, who sells LulaRoe. I have worn their solid leggings for a while, and decided to break out into some skirts. This year I decided that I wanted to make the rule that I WOULD NOT be uncomfortable all day in something I wear. Because of that, I have been trying to make outfits with cute pieces, which are also comfy. I might write more about this later.

Buying: Not buying anything right now, but my list is getting bigger and bigger. I need some new sunglasses, an apron for my now increasing Betty Crocker moments, oh and a can opener. Thanks Amazon Prime!
