March may have ended with our house being over run by sniffy, snotty, germ-y fun,
but here are a few of the brighter spots from earlier in the month.
Books: Game of Thrones
TV & Movies: Vikings
I’m a big reader, and when one of our librarians told me about this site a few weeks ago I was instantly smitten. You type in your zipcode and select your local library. Then you can choose to receive weekly e-mails or follow an RSS feed about what new books have been ordered by your library. Anything that sparks your interest can be put on hold right away, and you’ll be the first to receive the brand new copy when it arrives. So awesome!
Food: Easter Candy
I’m not gonna lie. My children will not be eating even a tenth of this candy. The jellybeans and cadbury’s are for Ant,
and we’ll both fight over the peanut butter eggs, but those smarties, sweet tarts, and crunch eggs are pretty much off limits…
even if it takes me til Halloween to finish them!
Kids: Baby Gates
By the time we moved to this apartment Reli was pretty much trained in the “you can and can’t touch” department. But now that Corbin has started getting into everything we’ve had to devise some major fortifications involving this gate, this gate, and this fence. You can’t cross the house without climbing over at least two to them, but I don’t find little fingers destroying my projects anymore…usually.
Adults: Photo Lamps
I’ve mentioned before that our apartment is practically a cave. Our kitchen and dining room are windowless, with an adjoining living room that has a single tall thin window and a door onto the patio…underneath the upstairs balcony…facing North. Trying to take decent looking pictures inside was next to impossible until Ant got me these table top daylight lamps. They are compact enough to be left out on my desk and have improved my indoor shots about a 1000%. I guess now you know my secret.
Just for Fun: Cute Trims
I just couldn’t resist the measuring tape trim and speckled ric rac that I found in the Michael’s dollar bins!
Now, do you think I’ll ever actually use them, or will they just sit around and look pretty?
What did you love about March?
I know a few of you who are hoarding the chocolate too!
