Currently in March

Reading The Untelling by Tayari Jones. Everyone is talking about An American Marriage right now so when I saw this book by Jones on sale on kindle I decided to buy it. So far it’s just OK. The writing is really good but the story is kind of meh.

Loving the nicer spring weather we have had this past week. On Sunday Olivia, Chloe and I went for an almost 1 hour walk outside and yesterday I ran errands in my birkenstocks! It is supposed to snow later this week though but I’m crossing my fingers that is not accurate. March came in like a lion (we had a HUGE snowstorm on March 1) so it dang well better go out like a lamb!

Feeling pretty good. I was feeling super super tired last week but I feel better this week. I average about 6.5 hours of sleep a night according to my Apple Watch, which isn’t awful but definitely isn’t the 8-9 I used to get. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m just so happy I have a 12 month maternity leave as I couldn’t imagine working on such little sleep and I *really* hope that I’m sleeping more by the time I go back to work!

Thinking about yoga teacher training! I am so excited that I am finally doing something I have been thinking about for several years. Yoga teacher training starts in August and I just know it’s going to be an amazing experience.

Anticipating a super busy summer with many trips down south starting in May. I have a feeling the last 7 months of my maternity leave are going to absolutely fly by.

Watching Shameless. I’m about 7 episodes into the first season and feel meh about it even though multiple people recommended it to me. I’m also still watching Scandal each week when new episodes come out and I just watched the season finale of This is Us.

Working on being better at meal planning and eating food from deep in our freezer and pantry. I default to going grocery shopping when we have perfectly good food at home way too often, so I’m trying really hard to stop doing that and use up some of the food we’ve had on hand for awhile.

Grateful for my adorable, perfect daughter. She is more fun every day. I love her so much!

Listening to music more often! I almost never listened to music (podcasts all the way) but have started listening to some spotify playlists while Olivia and I are hanging out during the day and she seems to like it! I usually just play the ‘top hits’ playlist.

Wishing that the nice weather would come and stay for good. I’m so done with winter!

What are you grateful for, thinking about and wishing for right now?

    I felt the same way about Shameless. I eventually stopped watching it because I just wasn’t into it and I feel like people are shaming me (pun intended) for not watching it! Haha.

    I’m so happy that you’re doing yoga teacher training. I have no doubt that it’s going to be perfect for you! Can’t wait to hear more. 🙂

  3. I can’t wait to hear about your experience with yoga teacher training. I know you are going to be such a wonderful instructor. I hope to take a class from you some day!!

    I’m grateful for all the support I”ve received from friends and family. The first weeks of Paul’s life have been an emotional rollercoaster so it’s helpful to get so much positive encouragement and to be told that it will get better/easier with time.

  4. It took me until the second season to really get into Shameless, and now it is my favourite!

    We had two BIG snow storms this March, that caused a lot of havoc on the roads. It was insanity. Hopefully that’s the end of it now …
