Hi, February! Another year just blowing right by us, eh? I feel like I just did this post for January!
Fun fact of the day: I started this series a year ago February. I’m happy that I stuck with it and can look back on all my old monthly posts now.
It’s crazy that a year ago this month I was freezing my butt off in Boston with 10 more weeks of pregnancy left! How times have changed.
Reading // The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This is really interesting. I love cleaning, organizing and tidying but Kondo is on a different level. She has a method to organize your whole house and while it seems a little nuts, I really hope to do it before our next move.
I am mostly interested in doing this for my clothing, shoes, and accessories but anything else I can get to would be great too. I’ll review the book when I’m finished if anyone is interested.
Not Loving // How my post about not blogging about my personal life came out. Something about that just didn’t come across how I wanted.
I definitely wasn’t saying that I wouldn’t post posts like this anymore or give any personal information about myself or life. I just don’t want all the details sometimes. And to be honest, I just don’t want to answer certain questions that people seem to ask and then keep asking and won’t drop it even when I skirt around a question and try to say “No, I’m not going to answer that or give that information” (usually having to do with specifically where I live…).
I guess I just meant to say that there will be certain info not shared, of course, and that this blog does not mean that I am an open book about anything just because it’s here.
Craving // A good run. I did a trail race two weekends ago and am supposed to do another one this weekend, but between being crazy sick last weekend and just not having the desire to run, I don’t think I’ll run the race this weekend.

I’ve had a really hard time getting in the groove of running in Texas. I think it’s because I have to drive somewhere to run and then bring to stroller, etc. It’s a big outing on top of what we already do daily. But I really want it. I just need to get out there.
Putting off // I actually got decently caught up on stuff I felt I was putting off last month. I got my teeth cleaned and made some other appointments that I was putting off. I think I’m doing okay for now.
Wanting // All the workout clothes, please. Now that I joined the Y, I actually care about what I’m working out in and don’t want to wear the same thing every day. 😉 And workout clothes are just bae (did I use that right? omg, I hate this slang trend).
I’m totally eyeing these capris from Old Navy. My purple capris that I always seem to Instagram are the same style and they fit perfectly.
Praying about // Mostly the same stuff as usual:
- Claire being healthy and developing well
- our future move and that God handles all the details and I can let go of the unknown
- sometimes just to get through the day. We’ve had some rough rough days lately
- other moms who I know are also having rough days
- to be the best mom I can be but also take good care of myself
Happy about // Joining the Y. It’s definitely not the perfect fit for a gym for me, but it will work until we move. Claire is really starting to like the lady in the child watch and every time I come back she tells me “she did so well!” She seems happy, so that’s a plus. I really can’t do any classes there but the weight room is all I wanted it for.
Scared to // Blog sometimes. I feel like I enjoy blogging about the opinionated topics more and more and sometimes I’m not sure how people will take it. I just wrote this weird post about how I don’t like certain Instagram accounts and I can’t decide if I should publish it.
Looking forward to // A long weekend this weekend and a weekend not being sick.
Watching Claire continue to develop. I know she’s probably not going to walk by 12 months but I keep getting excited for her first steps, whenever that may be.
Questions for You:
- What are you needing, putting off, loving lately?
- What goals did you accomplish in January? Do you have any for this month?
