Monthly Wrap Up: February 2016

Posted March 1, 2016 in Monthly Wrap Ups / Leave a comment!

 

It was not the greatest reading month for me. I hardly finished anything. That’s mostly just because I’ve been so busy with work that I’ve had no time to do any reading. I’ll do better next month once these projects are all finished!

THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH

  • My friend went to Florida to Harry Potter world and brought me back some yummy treats!
  • We went to pick out bridesmaid dresses for my friends wedding. It was a lot of work but we managed to pick one and it’s going to be a shimmery gold. 🙂
  • Nothing else exciting really happened. Just a few new freelance projects that have been taking up my time.

THREE NEW OBSESSIONS

  • I really want to redesign my blog but I have to get off of a free WordPress site to do that. I’ve been looking into getting my own server and hosting it on that so I have a lot more freedom.
  • Baked broccoli. It’s my new favourite thing to eat. You cut up some broccoli and put in on a baking pan. Then you sprinkle some olive oil on it (I use a chipotle olive oil on mine) and then I throw some steak spice on them. Bake for about 10 mins and yum!
  • Decorating my apartment. I have all the essentials now so I need to make it look pretty. Any tips/ideas?
