March Recap 2015

My month will look a little boring this month I am afraid because in the realm of blogging, reading, and TV watching...I didn't do much. Or at least I FEEL I didn't do much. I will let you be the judge :)
Another fun month! Just two days ago my very pregnant neighbor gave birth to her second home! Yikes! It wasn't planned :/ But both Mom and baby are well! 

Overall, March was an ...interesting month. I took my sister in law on her first college visit and later in the month we took Baby Girl to her first egg hunt. She LOVED it. 

Hubby also hosted his very own Chopped Challenge. If you've ever seen 'Chopped' on the Food Network channel, it is pretty intense. Because of space and money limits, we could only have three chefs and three judges. The chefs went all out and made some crazy fun dishes. As a judge I got help pick the mystery ingredients. For the dinner round we picked: pork tenderloin, tawny port, fennel, and Lo Mein Noodles. For the dessert round we picked: frozen french toast sticks, pudding cups, dried mint, and green apples. We can't WAIT to do it again!!

Parks and Rec is my main go to whenever I get around to actually watching TV these days. 

Hubby worked a day shift this week which allowed us to watch a lot of random eps of 30 Rock and hang out with Jimmy Fallon
A ton of clothes as I am going to give Stitch Fix another go. I created a board for my stylist....let's see what comes of it! 

Some fun stuff for the communal 'An Uncertain Choice' board. Love what has been pinned on there by readers! 

And this. I'm thinking about doing a 30 day blogging challenge in April....better make up my mind and SOON! :D
