march goals.

i've noticed recently on other blogs i follow that they post about their monthly goals. i thought this is an absolute brilliant idea!! by doing this, i feel like i can hold myself more accountable ;) i'll check back next month to see how well i did.

1. spring cleaning, organizing, and purging.
spring is the perfect time for a clean and fresh start!! also, it really is time for D and i to go through our things that we've accumulated these last couple of years and do some major purging.

2. start blogging consistently.. 2-3 times a week.
i LOVE our life. seriously i am so blessed with the best friends and family and sweetest husband. we are always busy with so many fun things going on and i want this to be a space i can look back on and remind me of this amazing time in our lives. 

3. get our "yearbooks" started. complete thailand album. work on two previous eurotrip albums.
i'm incredibly behind on ALL our photobooks :( as in, i haven't even started them :/ i need to do some serious catching up this month.

4. read 2 books.
i'm about a quarter of the way into "the andy cohen diaries," but i'd like to tackle 1-2 more books this month. i have a pile growing on my side table :/ there's something about buying new books that makes me happy; now i need to get back in my habit of reading daily ;)

5. go to barre 4-5 times a week.
i am determined to make 2015 the year i commit to living as healthily as i can. turning 27 in january gave me quite the quarter-life crisis and i just want to improve upon every area of my life beginning with exercise. going to bar method is easily my favorite workout and the membership costs a pretty penny, so i want to go as often as possible plus i feel so accomplished after each class!!

6. 2 nights per week = no phones for hubby and i.
we picked wednesday and sunday nights. we are both so busy, especially D with the demands of his job, studying for an engineering licensing exam in april, and not to mention training for 2 half marathons and a full marathon. it's nice to have specific days during the week that we can disconnect.

sunday notes.

dear MARCH: i can't believe you're already here!! 2015 is already flying by too quickly :/ time to get started on our spring cleaning and purging!

dear lazy weekend: you've consisted of barre, hiking, delicious meals, board games, and lots of snuggling. with our hectic schedules, i embrace every one of you that comes our way!!

dear dutch baby: hubby has made you two days in a row for breakfast this weekend and i couldn't be happier!! like i've told D, i'd rather eat a dutch baby over french toast, pancakes, or waffles any day!!! ;) {recipe coming soon.}

dear bar method: i am ever so slightly ADDICTED to you!! to the point that i make plans around class times so i can fit in a class beforehand. i suppose it's the perfect kind of addiction ;)

dear san diego restaurants: there are so many of you that it's always hard to decide where we want to eat. from the hole in the wall (hawaiian homestyle), to the perfect happy hour location (the patio on goldfinch), to the uber fancy (juniper&ivy). you make us so thankful to live in a city with so many delicious options!!

dear puzzalarium: i CANNOT wait for this double date night this week!! is it friday yet?!?!! sooo excited!!!

dear handsome husband: you are so busy with work, studying for the biggest test of your career thus far, and training for your half BUT you are the best at making sure we still have quality time together and for that i am so grateful!!!
