March on!

An old blogpost from March 2013

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday! xoxo But I think March is my new favorite month (well, maybe second to October aka my bday month). As I get older, it seems like time's flying past my face so rapidly! I'm trying to embrace all those special moments.

Anyway, March is the bday month to lots of my dearies esp. my little brother & sister who are born on the same day three years apart. And my daughter in law who's more like a friend. March is also Spring Break, which means a week off school. #perks And the 18th is my 13th wedding anniversary to the best thing that's ever happened to me besides Jesus' rescue. I'm excited!

March also means clothes month for my 7 (a la the Jen Hatmaker book we read last year) journey with my friend, Michelle. So when you see me wearing the same, stinky outfit please just smile & nod. I'd like to think I'm simplistic, but the volume of clothing in my closet reeks otherwise. I justify it b/c I love hand-me-downs, but truly it's excess. Husband asked me last night, "Remind me why you're doing this again?" I had to reread the chapter. He refused to read it because our friend Kyle Sherman said it sounded like a chick book. The quote from pg. 51 embodies my cause.

So...happy March, everybody! Spring is on her way and she looks promising!!

Addendum to my FB post above: for those that haven't read 7 (why?) undergarments don't count, she counted 2 pairs of shoes as one, I'm counting two as none.
~I didn't choose a jacket (it's March) but this morning I froze during parent drop-off and a kindergartener told me I really should be wearing a coat. HaHa! My sweet co-worker Katie asks if it counts when someone loans me one. Hmm. I gave her the book's spiel about the freezing (literally to death) homeless population and just put my hands in my pockets and endured.
~All the clothes I chose were black, except for my jeans. Scott says I must add color, so I switched a black Ponder tee for a gray & pink breast cancer one.
~Picking out my 7 garments proved to be more challenging than I'd imagined!
