I have to say that I’m pretty excited to see February come and go. To me, it means that we’re almost to spring break, which means that we’re almost to the end of the school year. This year, more than ever, I am ready for that to be here.
Since this month is a dreary one, we haven’t been doing too much. Nevertheless, here’s a little life recap for February.
Watching: Travis and I are still on the Shameless kick. We usually watch one episode each night right before we go to bed. These later seasons aren’t as good as the earlier ones, but they’re still pretty entertaining and still pretty darn crude too.
I’ve given up on The Bachelor. Yep. A few weeks ago, I was watching one of the episodes thinking, “Hurry up, this isn’t even good” so I decided it wasn’t worth my time this year. I can’t quite get into it, and Arie honestly drives me nuts. I’m still curious to see who wins, but not so much that I’m going to be watching. I’ll just read the articles on people.com. 🙂
Listening To: My music choices have been pretty much the same as usual. In my classroom, my students for Foundations class just gave speeches about the Japanese American Internment Camps. We have been talking a lot about good public speaking skills, and students practiced a ton to be ready. Needless to say, I think that I had some of their speeches memorized after hearing them so often. 🙂
Shopping For: Last week, after my three snows days, Travis came home each day and asked me, “Okay, what did you buy today?” (He doesn’t have much faith in me, huh?)
I actually didn’t do any shopping until the snow day on Friday, and even then, I reined it in. I picked up some decorations for a coworker’s baby shower that I’m hosting and a few random things at Tuesday Morning. I’ve been looking for some cute curtains for my office, and I found some that fit the bill, but I just can’t decide if they’re “the ones” as they’re a little short and not as full as I would like.
Wearing: I’m still throwing on my fun, new leggings to relax in at home. With all of those snow days last week, my permanent outfit was patterned leggings and a workout shirt. If I could wear athleisure clothes all the time, I would do it, no questions asked. I have to remind myself to buy normal clothes when I go shopping because athletic wear is what I always gravitate towards. (I guess I could become a P.E. teacher and kill two birds with one stone, no?! 🙂 )
Loving: I’ve been sticking to my New Year’s Resolution to exercise more, and I’m loving how I’m feeling! I like to do a couple miles on the treadmill (a mix of walking and running) and then I try to throw in some kettlebell work and a little bit of a workout video in there too (things like yoga, pilates, dancing, etc.). I don’t get in a workout everyday because let’s be honest, some days, I am flatout too exhausted, but I always feel so good after I do exercise for awhile.
I truly love the feeling of running when I am in shape, and it’s exciting to feel like it’s already getting easier. Plus, Travis has upped his working out as well so if he says he’s going to run on the treadmill, and I haven’t done my workout yet, I feel like I have to. My motivation is a little competitive with him, I guess. 😉
Looking Forward To: This weekend, our friend Emily is celebrating her birthday a little early by getting a party bus for a bunch of friends to ride around on. We’re excited for some good ole party bus cruising (who doesn’t love a party bus?!) and to get together with some of her other friends who we met this past summer on our big float trip!
Question of the Day: What is one thing you are loving lately?
