Well the end of another month is here and it’s time to say hello April. I really cannot believe how fast this year is going by. It will be Christmas before we know it and I would be already married by then (eeek!).
I have been writing these reflective “I Heart…” posts for a year and even now the purpose of why I started these posts originally still holds true: a way of collecting together my achievements and a way of looking at how I can progress in the future.
As months go March has been pretty darn awesome, especially the latter half of the month…
I had a lovely week off from work in the sunshine.
After reading The Hunger Games trilogy I just had to go and watch the film which I thought was awesome!
I took part of the Green Smoothie Challenge and made some awesome breakfast smoothies to start my day off in the right way. The round up of my own Seven Smoothies in Seven Day Challenge is coming your way tomorrow complete with recipes.
I got closer to 30 last Sunday and celebrated my 26th birthday with my girlies and ate the best cupcake.
It was also my 7 year anniversary with Alfie and we went out for a fab meal.
We also made more headway with our wedding planning and booked a band, a table dresser and two beautiful vintage cars. Although the most exciting part for me this month as far as wedding planning goes was ordering and paying for my wedding dress yesterday. I adore my dress and cannot wait for it to be made and come into the shop to be fitted. I still can’t believe that I actually have my dress!
Yesterday also marked the start of prop buying for the wedding. I found a great retro/vintage store and a shop specialising in vintage products that stocks loads of stuff. I wanted to buy it all but for now settled on a vintage looking frame that I bagged for £5.
Looking at last months goals I achieved them all including finishing the discussion of my thesis and having a big wardrobe clean out and bagging things for the bin, eBay or the charity shop. I always feel better after a good clear out.
This month I would like too:
make the most of the outdoors by going for walks, longer runs and pottering in my garden
continue to save and budget
enjoy my Easter lunch
finalise the wedding cake design and design for the invites
sign up to a 10K race and consider a half marathon if I have the time to dedicate to it
finish the first draft of my thesis
create a new blog header
For March I am super excited to announce that Groupon are sponsoring with some amazing giveaways and deals up for grabs. There will also be some great giveaways from some of my continuous blog sponsors too so look out for those.
How was March for you?
Do you have anything exciting coming up for April?
