Monthly To Do | March

I'm so glad March is here! January is the start of a new year but I always feel like March is really when things seem to refresh! I've officially decided that spring has hit Texas. It's been in the high 70's and low 80's for a few weeks now with the occasional dip in temps, like today it's 71. I can already tell it's going to be a hot summer!

Enough about the weather.
Hi March!! :)
Today I'm going to tell ya my March To-Do list and recap my February ones. Let's go!

1. Oily skin remedy -Yes! I ran out of my Rodan + Fields one day and realized I was also out of Cetaphil so I needed something stat until my R+F came in. FYI: I do the R+F at night and the Cetaphil in the morning. Well browsing around Target looking for something 'oil control' related I came across this! Friends, it was the perfect add on to my skincare routine. Since it's Cetaphil I know my skin wouldn't react to it. I can tell a huge difference now that I've used it for a few weeks.

2. Appointments: Eye, Dentist, Hair - Hair - Check! I was able to get mine and B's done when we went to Odessa a few weekends ago. Dentist- Check! We both go next Thursday. Eye - negative. I'm still trying to decide on an optometrist for us.

3.  Activities with Brylee - Well, we've painted, played, cooked, played, colored, painted.. etc. - the normal things but I still haven't found something to do! I heard another small town nearby has toddler gymnastics but I cannot get anybody to return my phone call. Boo!

4. Organizing challenge - Ha! I did the dining room. That's it. I feel like I need an entire weekend to do my kitchen and I just never had the time this month. See March!

5. Keep up with January To-Do's:
  • Read 2-3 books - I read one and started one. I just can't seem to get into this one.
  • Lose 2-3 lbs - ha! I gained far more than I'd like to admit. It's those dang cookies!
  • Morning routine - Yes! I've been getting up and at em' earlier and earlier and I'm back to loving it!
  • Workout 3-4 x per week - Yes! I've worked out 4 or more times each week!
  • Daily devotions/Bible reading - I've loved my Jesus Calling devotions but I haven't been reading my Bible like I wanted to.

Now, on to March! Lots of things to do in March. 

1. Purge closets - Clean, organize and giveaway/sell! We have way more than we need and I have my eye on a few things for spring/summer but I'm making myself clean out the closes first.

2.  Clean and organize bathrooms and kitchen - I was supposed to do the kitchen for the past 2 months. I have got to do it this month! And the bathrooms. I hate clutter and it needs to be fixed!

3. Plant garden - flowers, shrubs, produce, herbs - all of it! I've been reading up on how to do it because I definitely don't have a green thumb. I do want a pretty patio and with as much fruits/veggies we eat, we might as well be growing them!

4. Bible study - I've been reading my Jesus Calling but I really want to dig in and study the Bible. Anybody have any good recommendations?

5. Take Brylee outside - The weather is too nice to be inside here! She can play while I tend to my garden! :) She may even want to help with the garden!

6. Order canvas prints - I've been needing to do this since we had the pictures taken in November! I need to order a few big canvas' and some prints.

7. Go to bed earlier - Since I've been waking up earlier I need to go to bed earlier to make sure I have enough sleep. I don't take naps - they make me grouchy so in order to catch those zzz's I need to be in bed earlier.

8. Easter baskets and Easter dresses - I've started on B's basket and she has a dress. Mine is a different story. I wanted this lush one but I'm afraid it'll be too short on me... long legs + long torso = odd fitting clothes!

9. Walk/Run 2x a week - I've been working out every single day but I really want to start running again. With Tate coaching softball, B and I can go up there for a bit and she can hang with him on the fields and I can run the track and bleachers! We'll see!

10. Whole 30 (kind of) - I don't want to give up my french vanilla creamer and I don't want to tell myself I cannot have ice cream when I want it. I want to cut out on a lot of things but keep moderation in mind when eating sweets/snacks that I normally wouldn't have. And yes, I know I need to stop baking and buying cookies! 

I'm going to keep the following  going each month: 

1. Lose 2-3 lbs per month
2. Read 2-3 books per month
3. Daily devotions
4. Workout every day!

I can do every single one of my goals. every. single. one! 
Good luck to you on all your monthly to-do's and goals!

  4. Where do you order canvas prints from? I so need to do that! I think my closets are on a perpetual purge.

  5. Cleaning my closet has been on my to-do list for a few months! I need to do a serious purge because it's getting more and more difficult to find things in there!
