Current Intentions March 2024

 Hey friends. Happy March. This month is already going so much smoother than the last two. The weather has been gorgeous, we have had so many play dates, getting into healthy routines, and being intentional with my time. Lets jump in with my intentions for March, then looking back at February and 2024 goals. 




But first I usually linking up with Jennifer over at Overflowing with Thankfulness for currently. 

loving


We have had gorgeous weather the last few days. Our house has become the kid (and adult) hangout. On Saturday there were 6 kids, Sunday 8 kids, Monday 8 kids and yesterday I had 3 kids during school hours. I love that our house has the space and the trampoline, basketball hoop, and long driveway for chalk. 

 looking forward to


Sunshine, beautiful days, mornings outside with coffee while waiting for the bus, evening eating on the porch, hanging out with friends, and warmer weather. 

 planning

I really need to start planning on cross country vacation. The plan is to fly to Seattle, stay with my sister in law for a few days then rent a large suv and drive home stopping at a few National Parks on the way back to Ohio. Have you gone to the National Parks in around Wyoming, we are thinking Badlands, Yellowstone, etc. Any tips or must see. 

 wearing


Yesterday it was 72 degrees outside. I was outside reading while the kids played on the trampoline and dug for worms. I was wearing workout pants from Fabletics and a workout tank from The Ladies Edge and sports bra from Shefit. I had planned on working out but then ended up with 3 kids instead of 2 so my workout got put on hold. (one child I can't leave out of eye sight) I really thought of going inside and putting shorts on. Then the clouds rolled in with the rain and the temps dropped to 65. 

 eating


My got to lunch this week. I put everything in a mason jay, minus the dressing, then dump on a plate at lunch time. Cucumber, tomato, carrots, black beans, corn, chicken, hard boiled egg, and lettuce.

  1. That's so nice that your house is the meeting place for so many friends. We went to Yellowstone and Grand Teton a few years ago. It's so beautiful. My biggest tip is don't underestimate the driving distances. You can click on the Travel tab at the top of my blog to find the posts. Have a great day!

  2. Your country cross trip sounds fun, adventurous and huge! Not sure I could plan or follow through with a trip that big. Hope you guys have a great time. And what fun that your house is the hangout spot! That is the best!
