Hi friends, welcome back! February seemed like a busy month that just flew by! Usually the year starts off slow, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Jon and I ate a lot of good food, went to a museum, had brunch with friends, celebrated Valentine’s Day, watched plenty of the Olympics, and spent a lot of time planning our anniversary trip. We had a few nice days sprinkled in February, and I’m very much looking forward to spring!!
On to my post 🙂 I’ve been linking up with my first and favorite blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions:
What I’m eating: February was a good month of eating between the Valentine’s treats and some cool restaurants! I’ll be sharing my Foodie Friday this week 🙂
What I’m reminiscing about: visiting Jon for our first Valentine’s Day in 2018. We saw The Book of Mormon and had an insane milkshake from Black Tap. This may be when my foodie dreams began haha. If only I had a better camera back then!
What I’m loving: After reading this post from my fellow blogger Dave, I had my wedding related posts created into a book from pixxibook and it turned out incredible!! Now I can have our whole wedding story in a book with all of my favorite pictures. We will cherish this book forever 🙂
What I’m Up to: I’ve been making great progress on my name changing, the process is actually a lot less painful than I thought it would be. I got my passport back in a few weeks (shocking!), applied for global entry, changed my Delta airlines account, and my credit card. I’m just happy to have all my travel documents updated well in advance of our trip because I can only imagine all the potential issues if I procrastinated…
What I’m working on: planning our trip to Paris and London! I have all our flights and accommodations booked, excursions picked, now I just need to book excursion tickets, tours, and find the best places to eat. Luckily I had my friend Hannah to guide me on the London portion of our trip! I’ve never been this organized with trip planning and it makes me very excited! I have nightmares that I don’t plan enough and miss all the cool things, but that definitely won’t be the case. Now the hard part will be waiting until we can board our first international flight in three years!
What I’m excited about: all my trips planned this spring! I’m going hiking in Utah with my mom and sisters in May, and then Jon and I are heading abroad so it’ll be a busy month! I had an ambitious 10 year travel plan I made at the start of 2020…that plan is not happening, but I’m excited to be crossing countries off our list again!!
My favorite post of the month: Seaport Museum, Lightship Ambrose & Wavertree Ship Tour. I seriously had the best afternoon touring these ships and learning more about my neck of New York.
What I’m watching/reading:
We’ve been watching a lot of the Olympics, we have one episode left of Seinfeld and I’ve been putting it off because I don’t want the show to end. I love winding down before bed with Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer! We also watched Loki , The Falcon and Winter Solider, The Woman Across The Street from the Woman in the Window, Inventing Anna, and a lot of golf and football! Clearly our TV got a lot of use this month haha.
February wasn’t a big reading month for me, probably because of all my time spent with my nose in some Rick Steves’ Paris and London books, but that’s ok with me 🙂 I read two books this month that I thought were good, but not page turners:
- The Island of Missing Trees by Elif Shafak
- Four Winds by Kristin Hannah
What I’m doing this weekend: We still need to go to The Met to see the Walt Disney Exhibit
What I’m looking forward to next month: March Madness! I haven’t been keeping up with college basketball much but I always love making my bracket…that is until it goes up in flames ha! Here’s a major throwback from my freshman year of college – I’m holding the Z. You could find me at every home game front row behind the commentators, I took Michigan State Basketball very seriously!
What are you looking forward to next month?
