Podcasts, workouts, books and looks of March!

Oh heyyyyy! Kind of disappeared there for awhile. And honestly, when I stop blogging for a bit it’s always hard to get started again. Anyways, now that we are well into April, even though it really doesn’t feel like it – we still have mountains of snow up here – it’s time to look back on March.

March was kind of a meh month overall with the exception of our super fun trip down south, so this will be a quick recap.

Podcasts

Shoutout to my friend Kelly for making a guest appearance on The Mom Hour for this episode about Kindergarten Readiness. Even though that’s years away for me I still found it super interesting. I also really enjoyed their more-than-mom episode on social media.

Workouts

In March I did a mix of at-home Fitness Blender workouts, walks, running and yoga; both in the studio and at home. I managed two runs and three yoga classes, including one baby & mom yoga class.

If the darn snow would go away already and the temperatures would climb above zero then I could start running outside again, but I’m currently living in a perpetual never ending winter over here.

Books

  

I only read three books in March. I’m hoping to step up the reading in April however it’s kind of all over the place right now… I’m currently listening to THREE different audiobooks, reading one book on my kindle and have a paper book going. Ah! Kind of all over the place, I know.

Anyways, in March I read Kitchens of the Great Midwest, which was way way different than what I thought it would be but I really liked it. It shared the stories of multiple different characters but it was all threaded together by one woman who kept showing up in their lives. I’ve never read a book written like that before and it was definitely a different style. We Were the Lucky Ones was definitely my favourite book of March. It’s a WWII / Holocaust book and so so hard to read but also so well written and interesting. I always learn something new about WWII when I read a book from that genre. It’s also so incredible that this book is based on a true story. The Untelling by Tayari Jones was really beautifully written but the characters and plot fell flat for me. I thought I would enjoy it because it’s the same author as An American Marriage which is getting all the  buzz right now and also the main character had Premature Ovarian Failure, but it fell flat for me and took awhile for me to get through.

Olivia’s Looks

My looks are still big time MEH right now, so Olivia’s looks again it is! I will share one look for me though…

I’ve discovered this new Canadian clothing company Buttercream Clothing and have ordered a few things from there recently and LOVE them. Including this twist top that is perfect for nursing!

More adorable-ness from Crafty Grandma! She made Olivia this sweet infinity scarf and matching hat for our walks at the track.

Wearing her pink ‘uggs’ and jeggings in her 4 month photo!

We LOVE this outfit that Aunty Jenny and Sydney gave Olivia. It matches her gold minimoc shoes perfectly!

    I loved “We were the Lucky Ones’… incredibly to think that it was based on true events!
    Your girl is the cutest. Her eyes… <3

  2. I love all of Olivia’s looks! She is the best dressed baby! I’m looking forward to dressing Paul in more interesting/cute outfits as right now he only wears sleepers since we do so many diapers changes (find outfits so much work when it comes to diaper changes!). Plus his feet are sooo tiny that socks don’t fit on them so I feel like footy pajamas are our only option for now. But he does have some cute sleepers, like the ones you gave him!!

    I really loved We Were the Lucky Ones. It was heartbreaking to read, though.

    March was the longest shortest month for us. It was nice during the first week of the month and then so crappy after that as we also got quite a bit of snow, and are still getting more,.. Here’s hoping that warm, spring weather arrives for both of us very soon!!!
