March was definitely an interesting month. Between starting my new job and starting to enjoy remnants of spring starting (let’s not talk about a certain four letter weather condition that just would not quit), I was out and about more with my friends.
On my first day of my new job, it fucking snowed. To cure my depression about starting my new life path (and because I had nothing else in my home to eat) I decided to make rice crispy treats, but with cashew butter and a little bit of sea salt. It was perfect
for bribing new friends at the office the next day!
I absolutely love my note pad from Paper Source! Buy it here.
I’m a big Whole Foods fan (especially the humongous Fair Lakes location) and I’m a wine fan. So how did it take me forever to try out their wine bar? It’s so lovely! You load up a card with money, stick the card in one of these contraptions, and choose just a taste, a small glass, or a whole serving. For me it was a great way to try some different wines for just a few bucks.
I absolutely love all of my students. Especially when they love each other too! Every session we make it a point to get together at the end to just celebrate how far we’ve come and to get to know each other better outside of class.
I signed up for my first StitchFix box! Find out all the details here.
I tried lyra for the first time last year. It hurt and it was hard. I decided to give it another go a few weeks ago. It still hurt and it was still difficult. But it’s such a great workout and so beautiful. I’d love to keep up with it more regularly, but the costs add up. If you ever get the chance to try aerial hoop, you should jump at it! You’re barely off of the ground.
Every year AJ and I go to the Super Pet Expo at the Dulles Expo Center. It’s fun to just dive into all things pets. I usually leave Nico at home but this year, since I was barely home all week to spend time with him, I thought I’d attempt bring it along. The trip itself was pretty hilarious and he kept trying to find his way out of there, but I think he still enjoyed himself. I left with the “I love you more than bacon” shirt above, and no frenchie kisses, despite the adorable display and the adorable Frenchie. I’m determined that this will be my next dog.
I think I may have a brand new favorite sushi joint. Sushi Prince! Their sushi is of such great quality and it feels like it just melts in my mouth. They also have really creative rolls and the place is so adorable!
When I heard that the Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson World Immortal Tour was not only coming to town but literally in MY city, I was SO excited! Tickets ended up costing more than I had budgeted for, but I’m so glad I splurged anyways! Like all Cirque shows, it had its odd moments (like Mimey McPopnLock as the “ring leader”) but all of the acts were so amazing and I sang every single song I knew. The highlights of the show were the pole dancing act (which got such great response!) and the one-legged acrobat that showed us that he capable of doing all sorts of things.
Despite taking a pay cut, there will always be room for brunch!
Part of the new job is attending a lot of events to network and learn. My coworker and I both lucked out and won 2 of the raffle prizes!
Any highlights from your March?
