February Recap

Can't believe we are almost halfway through March. Days are passing by like a blur to me. There aren't enough hours in the day to get things done. Last month was fun and exciting! I know it's kind of late but I still wanted to share our February tidbits.
Highlights of the month:

  • Madelyn did wonderful at her first meet. I know it's not always easy for her to stay focused but she was determined that day and took 2nd place overall. Very proud Mom moment indeed.
  • First trip of 2021! We took the girls & one of Courtney's friends on a ski trip to Michigan. They all had a great time. It was a fun weekend full of family memories. They did so well. No one got hurt =) By the end of day 1, they all can make a blue run without any issues. Hubby and I always encourage them to try new things. Hopefully, one day, they’ll gain the confidence they need to branch out on their own. It was really cold though. I had on 4 layers of clothes on the first day but it wasn't enough. On the second day, I piled my Canada Goose jacket on top and oh boy, it made a world of difference. Totally worth the price tag. Similar snow suit here

  • This might sound strange but we spent a couple of weeks in February squishmallow hunting. You are probably wondering what the heck are squishmallows? They are just plush toys. The toy's popularity has exploded on social media in the last year. Some are currently very hard to find and considered rare. These toys are ranging from $4.95 - $29.99 but people are selling them at 10x more than their values. This one is listed for $300 (we got her for $29.99!). All that to say, the kids and I had fun squishmallow hunting (especially when they found a "rare" one). The girls' collection is slowly but surely growing. What you're seeing right here is probably worth about $500 if they decide to sell. Crazy, isn't it?
  • Hubby and I went out with my brother and his wife to celebrate my brother's birthday, their anniversary and my promotion. It was fun having dinner in one of their igloos, kind of felt like a private dining room

  • Made a little progress on Madelyn's room. Since we tackle these home projects during our free time, it takes longer to get it done. Hubby and I are extremely busy these days. Wallpaper, all the moulding and speakers are finally up. New storage/cabinets, a chandelier, a desk and curtains will be (hopefully) up this month. As you probably can tell by this picture, she wanted a music themed bedroom. This girl loves music. She can blast music all day if I let her. Hubby had the idea of turning this wall into a stage. He was going to build her a platform but at the end, she decided to forgo the stage so that she can have more room to play. We're fine with it. Will share once it's done.
  • Last but not least, getting promoted was definitely the highlight of the month for me (you can read more about it here). I am so excited and happy that I have accomplished what I set out to do. 2021 is definitely off to a great start
  • Monthly purchases and favorites:

    • The most exciting purchase last month was my Chanel necklace (exact one here). I love it and can't wait to bust it out soon
    • Found this boyfriend blazer on super sale so I couldn't pass up (see it on me)
    • I also made a few small purchases mainly for our upcoming spring break trip. 
    • No stand-out favorite(s) this month. To be quite honest, I am home and feel like a bum 24/7 but we're beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I have so many things to look forward to post-pandemic.
    1. One piece swimsuit *size XS - I own the same suit in a different color*
    2. Pink swimsuit *size S* 
    3. Twist front swimsuit *size S* 
    4. White coverup *size S* 
    5. Tiered dress *size XSP - Fit and feel amazing*
    6. Boyfriend blazer *size 3XS - run super large*

    Monthly miles:
    I didn't do so well last month. We had a couple of weeks of extreme cold weather. I only logged 22 miles last month. I am catching up this month though. I've been running almost everyday since the beginning of March. Have a great rest of the month, everyone!
