What I Loved/Learned in March

Loved: making time to FINALLY get a library card and check out some books. I found a two new authors I really enjoy and found some gorgeous written novels as well as a new thriller series. Making myself write my SHOW US YOUR BOOKS post this weekend so I can finally post.

Learned: stretching before bed usually leads to a much more peaceful sleep and easier morning.

Loved: finally having a blate with my BOFF and Jess. You can read the recap here, it was quite the weekend and one I will remember for a long time to come.

Learned: how important it is to have GOOD girlfriends who support you quietly when life gets really tough. Loud, vocal support is important, but sometimes you need someone to quietly pray and champion you as you struggle through the mess.

Loved: the arrival of my niece! Three weeks old yesterday, wow.

Learned: how to deal with family far away when good things happen. It broke my heart I couldn't be there for my sister and it kills me I haven't seen my niece yet. However, I'm so beyond grateful for FaceTime, cell phones and pictures on family texts.

Loved: being brave and putting myself out there to audition for Les Mills. Practicing was no joke, preparation took a long time and the macro counting made me say no to a lot of yummy foods, yet it was all worth it in the end. So much for barely three minutes total of ME presenting, but it was the best day. A fun road trip with friends and I made so many more instructor friends that Saturday.

Learned: I am good at what I do. No matter the outcome, I hold in high regard the fact I was one of very few considered for this next round. Feedback given is already being put into place with my weekly classes and I feel so much more *YES* about teaching.

What did you love or learn this month?


  1. I really love this idea! Yay for cute nieces, good friends, & being brave!

  2. YAY for finally getting a library card!!! It's a game changer, I am telling you!

  3. I learned how important you guys are to me and that my child will test my limits to no end!

  4. Yay! Niece!

    Show Us Your Books is not on Tuesday, so you have time! It's 4/9!

  5. What a fun month! I learned that getting up at 3am is worth it if I can spend more time with the family.

  6. Your niece is so cute! When I lived away from my family, especially nieces, it was so hard, but it made the times I had in person so much more appreciated. Girlfriends are the best always, and always needed when stuff happens. Have a great rest of your week!

  7. Oh she is adorable! I agree, stretching before bed is a game changer!

  10. yay library! can't wait for your show us your books post :)
    aw your niece is SO adorable. i hope you get to see her soon.

  11. I love, love, love everything about this post!! Question - are you using a certain routine for stretching before bed?? I was trying to do that before our trip and it fell off... but I'm game to try again when I get back. I've been having really significant hip pain since December... so I think that stretching definitely needs to happen.
