Round-Up: March 2017

round-up: march 2017

“March shakes her icicled head / exhales Winter’s last gasp / chills clouded moisture / sheds her stinging tears.”  – John G. Lawless

March 2017 didn’t exactly fly by, but I was still sad to see it go!  It was a great month, because it was our first full-month of 2017 that we got to spend together as a family (due to Army training, etc).  It was also our last full-month in our apartment.  Our very first home. <3  But this month we got the notice that it’s time to move and so the adventure has already begun!  It might not come as a shock, but I didn’t exactly complete my monthly to-do list.  I had been doing good at the beginning of the year, but this move has thrown everything off it’s course.  I don’t mind that much.  Onto the list:

  1. Organize my makeup and lotion collection. I have purged a teeny bit, but I wouldn’t say I organized it!
  2. Stop wasting time on IG/random google searches.  My progress fluctuated.
  3. Make it to chapter 5 in my novel.  Was too busy to even open it.  Very sad about that!
  4. Write a guest post on a military wife blog.  I still plan to!
  5. Make macaroons.  We decide they were too invoveled/we were lacking in proper equipment.
  6. Enjoy a week of sister-vacay.  Sisters Fun Week was way too much fun!!!
  7. Find a new piano book to play through.  An old favorite “Music by the Masters” was my springtime jam.
  8. Get a little more done with my Google Analytics account.  Not this time!
  9. Spend one week doing something “in French” every day.  Ugh, too busy.
  10. Finish season 4 of Secret Life of the American Teenager.  But wait, managed to do this one. 🙂

This wasn’t my most productive month, if I’m looking at it strictly on the basis of how much of my to-do list was accomplished.  But as a month itself, and especially a month in 2017, it was busy and full of accomplishments.  Since it was our first time in a while that we had uninterrupted family time, my husband and I enjoyed lots of catching up with our baby.  Getting professional family (and military couple) photos taken was definitely a highlight.  So was crossing off our bucklet-list of things to do before we move.  Making plans for our future home has also been exciting, and simple days at home mean so much after so many months of training and separation.  If I’m being completely honest, March has always been one of my least-favorite months.  But this year, March was possibly the best!

I’m anticipating an equally (if not more) busy month ahead in April.  I hope you’ll stop by to read my overambitious to-do list for next month!  Since my list for March 2017 didn’t really happen, some of those to-do’s may get carried over.  It should be a great month.  Thanks for stopping by!
