Well, it is now over 3 weeks into March. Monday marked the first day of spring.
While it is indeed spring according to the calendar, the weather still have been all over the place.
Back in February, we had a weekend with almost 70 degree temperatures.
Granted a few days later this was followed by over a foot of snow and freezing cold temperatures, too.
But overall, February in NY was on the warmer side. However, the ides of March found March most definitely coming in like a lion with more snow and very frigid weather for a good portion so far.
But, we changed the clocks, springing ahead. So at the very least, it might have been cold, but was still light out until almost 7pm now.
Looking ahead though, I thought what better time than right now to give you more of what is “Currently” going on in my neck of the woods this March.
As I write this, I literally just finished Marlena, by Julie Buntin from March’s BOTM selection.
While the former was a truly quick and engaging read, as well as possibly even my favorite so far of the year, the latter was slow going at best early on. However, it began to pick up steam and speed for me around 60-70 pages into it.
Not updating with a full review on this one here, but then again you will just have to stay tuned for my review to come in the near future.
♥ This Is Us
Well now that NBC’s This Is Us is over until September, I am currently going through a bit of withdrawal. That said while I enjoyed the finale, I also felt it wasn’t the strongest episode of this past season. Barely even shed a tear! Which anyone who watches this shows can attest to that this show rarely even left a dry eye in the house this past season.
Other episodes, such as William’s finale swan song or even Kevin explaining life and death to his nieces were stronger in my humble opinion. I mean they invoked tears and more for this viewer at the very least. But I guess, now I wait until the fall until to hold my breath for what is to come.
I was excited for the new and final season of HBO’s hit comedy with Lena Dunham and gang. The first two episodes were a bit of a let down and the third was downright painful to watch.
But, as the season unfolded in episode four and further, I admit that I have been truly enjoying this show once again.
My favorite so far was in episode five, when Hannah’s mom paid her a visit. Between her mom having a midlife crisis and getting lost in NYC high on gummy bears, as well as Hannah and Elijah exchange in their search for Loreen (Hannah’s mom), I truly couldn’t help finding that episode downright entertaining. Only four episodes to go and am hopeful for how this series will conclude now.
♥ Big Little Lies
Yet another HBO show I couldn’t resist giving a go to, because I read the book with the same name by Liane Moriarty.
So far, having read the book I know where the story and plot is going. But still am highly enjoying each episode, especially with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman in the lead actress roles.
Plus, I can’t help to love to hate, Alexander Skarsgaard (Eric) of True Blood fame. I mean I may have had a bit of a crush on him from the True Blood series. So, even though his character is quite abusive and pretty much a male chauvinistic pig here, the actor playing him isn’t too hard on the eyes to enjoy watching him from one week to the next.
Recently, we had to renew our Sirius XM Subscription for both vehicles. My husband is more into country music and usually listens to the country stations in his car. One of the groups that he got me into is Midland from his Sirius XM listening. So, while I work I have been streaming their latest album.
A recent review found me getting to try Kemps YO2 Frozen Yogurt. My favorite flavor from them is Salty Caramel Cookie Crunch, which is seriously addictive! Right now you can buy it at your local Stop and Shop, too!
OK, so as much as I have gushed over Lularoe and their butter soft leggings, I have to share I recently had an incident with them.
I truly must have had my head in the clouds on this one. But I got a new pair a few weeks back. I wore the pair one time and found I had holes (large ones) along on the butt area after wearing for only a few short hours in my home!
Thankfully this was only in my house. Plus, I was able to exchange for a new pair. However, I have been a bit scarred and even scared to buy more or even wear more outside my home for fear that this may happen again.
See my understanding this is an ongoing issue and even Lularoe knows about this issue. There is even a huge Facebook group with 1,000s of members that have similar complaints and issues with this.
So sadly I have been wearing jeans more once again, because of this.
Tell me has anyone else had this issue?
As of right now, this is the apparently slow and down time for those in the blogging world. See coming off the recent holidays and a lull before Mother’s Day hits.
Never fails as this seems to happen each year.
So, I have been taking advantage of this lull by working on updating this site a bit with a new printable offer for those who sign up. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, you can do so HERE to take advantage of this FREE printable offer.
I also recently transferred to a new hosting company as I was having some issues with my previous one. I am now happily hosted with Site Ground.
But fear not as I am currently seeing signs of this picking up thankfully once again.
Plus, I also am a designer and have been kept busy on that end.
With it being March and spring having indeed begun on the calendar, I am truly dreaming of warmer weather.
Hell, I would settle on being able to put away my snow boots and long heavy NorthFace down coat if nothing else!
My older daughter will be celebrating her 1st Holy Communion at the end of April. So, currently planning for that celebration here.
We purchased the dress, ordered flowers, booked a restaurant for the party afterwards. Now, I need to get working on invites next.
Well, that’s a wrap for March and hoping that the month now goes out like a lamb if nothing else.
