Five Friday Faves for March 2020

These times have my anxiety kicking into high gear, my OCD flaring up, and has me all up in my feelings. That's why this is the perfect time to bring back my Five Friday Faves and lighten the mood and allowing me to focus on sharing some good things. It's so easy to focus only on the negative! So here are some things I've been loving recently and I would be so pleased to see you share something that has made you happy in recent times in the comments. I hope this finds you all safe and healthy.

Old Navy Winter/Spring Haul 2020

First of all, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the change from my last post to this one. For starters, we have been social distancing all week, only going out for needed groceries. We are lucky that we can do what we do from my home. Not only can my husband work from home, but his workplace was insistent on it.

In my last post, I mentioned our hopeful trip to Michigan. Even before the borders announced the impending closure, we had already decided it would be wrong and selfish to go. As someone who thrives on traditions, it sucks. However, I also know that I would rather do my part and protect myself and my family. And I know we will still celebrate our anniversary (at home!) on the day, the vibe will just be different. The important thing is that my husband and I have each other, not where we are and what we are doing. We'll do a trip later to make up for it when the time is right.

What I also want to say is that I don't know how serious I will get on here. Believe me when I say that I take this virus very seriously and care deeply about what is going on in the world. This blog has always been an escape for me, as I started it back in 2007 while I was mourning the loss of my grandmother. I've been seeing people judging and policing what people do and do not post. Please don't do that. You don't know someone fully based on what they post. We all need a mental break and escape, a dose of normalcy in a time of uncertainty. This is mine. It's also my hobby, my job, and a little of everything else. I guess I just wanted to put that out there and clear the air.

So yeah, today's post is about my latest Old Navy haul. And that's okay.

InstaMonth for February 2020

I'm so happy we're in March! Our wedding anniversary is this month and we always enjoy a trip away. Though to be honest, I'm incredibly late in planning it this year. Hoping to get a hotel booked this week! We're looking at Traverse City, Michigan. One of our favorite shows to watch together is The Curse of Oak Island. And while going to Oak Island in Nova Scotia would be fun and a total dream of mine, just maybe not so much during the winter months.

One of the brothers on the show owns a winery in Traverse City, hence wanting to go and enjoy a tour during the off season while crossing my fingers that Marty is there. I love the story and legend of Oak Island, but I truly love the artifacts and the history behind everything they have found so far. If you're into mysteries and history, it's a captivating show! I especially enjoy watching Rick, Jack, and Gary. Anyway, enough about my love of The Curse of Oak Island. If you watch it, let me know in the comments!

I had fun with my Instagram during the month of February, making almost every picture have a tone of red or pink in it for the month of loooooove. I don't usually go down the path of color themes, but I love pink and red so this didn't feel like something forced. It was just something that is almost always in my pictures anyway. The algorithm is not my friend on most days despite trying many different methods, so I've found my best way around this is to post these little round-ups here on a domain that I own. :)

Blog of the Month for March 2020: Beautiful Beakers

In February, Jodi from A Brash Attitude was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I'm featuring Stef from Beautiful Beakers. Y'all, I'm not sure what Stef can't do. She's a biologist, bllogger, wife, and mom. I don't know how she finds time for it, honestly! Well, actually she did take a bit of a break from blogging (understandably!), but she's back! She's got a great post up on a few luxury beauty items that she thinks are worth it as her first topic after her hiatus. If you stop by her blog or social media, feel free to let her know I sent you. :)

February 2020 Favorites

I was kind of absent this week. My husband has been having back problems and working from home for a lot of this week, so I just spent that time with him. Aside from that, I've been having problems with PayPal. Good grief, their support is practically non-existent. Hoping to get that fixed so I get my payment through for Spotify Premium. Speaking of which, I'm on the free version right now until then. I'm having problems with it skipping certain tracks that it never did before. Has anyone ever had that happen? Do you know a fix? A Google search has let me down so far and logging out and back in did nothing.

I'm just going to jump right into my favorites from this month. Nothing truly new, but that's not how I treat my favorites posts. I like to show what I reached for the most, rather it be new or old. If it were all new all of the time, I don't think I could keep up. Haha! As always, I'd love to hear about anything you've been loving!
