March Thankful Thursday

Wore this Gap dress and Ugg boots to the last JL meeting of February.

Thankful Things
2/27 The upside of being super tiered, it was so easy to fall asleep!
2/28 I got two of my research projects done and applied to a job. I felt really productive.
3/3 Watched Dredd with Hubs. It was a great movie.
1/5 ET and BB made us dinner at their new place in the city. Got to play Apple to Apples with them and JR.

The City Skyline at Night

3/6 Hung out with Aunt F in the city! She showed me around Dad's office with the hope that I can help out. Then I saw her office and then we went to E2's apartment.
3/7 Spent the afternoon with JS, AT, my mom, and JS' mom. Then our families had a lovely dinner at their apartment.
3/8 Steak n Shake garlic burger and a Heath Bar shake.
3/10 So blessed! I busted out of the aiport and got to the bus stop at 6:34. The bus came at 6:38. I didn't have to wait for the 7:35 bus like I thought I'd have to.
3/11 I love my family but it's so nice to be home and with Hubs again.
3/12 Got new insurance for my car and started to register it here in Maine.
3/13 Snowday! Hubs stayed home with me!

My OOTN for the JL Event

3/14 Went to the JL's big annual event tonight! I was so excited to go.
3/15 I listed so many things on eBay and three had bids by the end of the day. Money in the bank for the Lilly Pulitzer warehouse sale in June!
3/16 So productive around the house today. I took care of so many chores and I am so happy the house is clean.

Everything I sold on eBay!

3/17 Two to three weeks until my next allergy shot!
3/19 I got my car back from the shop! It smells like nail polish inside but the big yellow scrape on the side of the car is gone!
3/20 We went to see my SIL's play. It was nice to be supportive and have something to do. (The play wasn't very good and there were other issues besides.)
3/21 My breaks got fixed so my car could pass inspection! I can't get pulled over because I have expired plates or lack an inspection sticker now!

My OOTN for Hubs' Birthday

3/22 We celebrated Hubs' Birthday with friends.
3/23 We celebrated Hubs' birthday with his parents. SIL made a great cake for him.
3/24 I mailed off a bunch of things I sold on eBay. So happy for the money and to clear out my closet.
3/25 I got to talk to my grandma on the phone. I was so glad to talk to her since I wasn't able to see her when I visited home.
3/26 I learned a lot a the JL meeting this evening.

New Year's Resolution Update
I've been so bad about exercising but I started playing Wii Fit again this week and I hope to keep up the good work playing it. I haven't been eating less sugar since I went home for a trip and then we had so many sweets for Hubs birthday extravaganzas. I have started using my Fitness Pal again to track calories and sugar again. When I went home I noticed my jeans were too tight so I measured my dimensions and my thighs were an inch thicker. I assume it's all fat so I am counting calories in addition to sugar. I'm flossing and using my clarisonic about 75% of the time I think, I'm not tracking it anymore. I am drinking more water than I used to but I'm not sure I'm getting 8 cups everyday, most days I do though. It used to be so easy for me to get 10 cups a day. I have no idea what happened to me. I'm still flu of envy sometimes and I am not sure if I've increased my happiness with my own life. I am going to need to replace my primer soon! I had been using Tarte's Clean Slate Primer. I really like it and I think it is my favorite beauty product hands down but I'd like to find something that costs less than $30 for an ounce. I've already scoped out Target to see what primer options they have. I'll need to renew my focus on being nicer to Hubs in April.

I've been hiding under a rock from my life lately. I need to get out there and do something with it. I've been afraid to sign up for CLE (continuing legal education) things because they cost money. But I need to sign up for CLEs to meet people and learn about things I didn't study in school. I've been dragging my feet about finding out how to hang out my own shingle. I am just so afraid of messing up or doing something embarrassing that I haven't done anything. I feel paralyzed with indecision. I feel like I can blame a good portion of this on family stress but I can't let what other people are doing stop me from doing what I need to do with my life. I've got to figure out how to break through this.

How was your month? How are you doing with your new years resolutions or other goals you may have?
