Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Can we believe it is the very last day of February already? As I sadly pack away all of the pink and red pieces in my life, I’m taking a few moments to remind myself why I should be excited for this next month! And spoiler alert.. there are TONS of reasons!
I love taking time out of my day to think about the little things that make me happy and excited, and doing this fulfilled that. So I encourage you to both read on, but make a little list of your own about why you should be excited for the next day, week, or month!
And.. enough chit chat, let’s get right into it!
1. The First Day of Spring! — March 20th
Who doesn’t love the idea of leaving winter behind come March? I’m ready to soak in the sun, take walks outside, and see all of the flowers sprout. Granted, all of that might not happen outside of my head, but it’s the idea that gets me really pumped.
Plus, for all of those on the east coast, can I get a shoutout for free Rita’s on the 1st Day of Spring?? Holla (:
2. Spring Break!!
Whether you’re going on an elaborate trip or just taking the week off at home, I love the idea of a little break. Especially as a college student, sometimes we need some TLC with our dogs and a homemade meal from our mom. ‘Nuff said.
This spring break I’ll be going to Jamaica on a mission trip. I’m extremely excited and can’t wait to see what the trip will bring. I’m sure it will be eye-opening and even tough at times, but I know that with the faith of God I will be able to open my heart and mind.
3. Mint EVERYTHING!
I’m talking mint nails, mint sweaters, mint sneakers, and mint drinks. It’s the perfect color for March and one that I don’t often acknowledge (sorry, purple is my go-to, always.)! So I look forward to taking total advantage and sporting the shade here, there, and everywhere (:
4. St. Patrick’s Day! — March 17th
Okay, this holiday is definitely underrated (or at least in my world it is)! I remember when I was super young and would set up little traps for the leprechauns in my house.. of course I would always come back from school to see them tampered with and totally empty, but that made it all the fun (thanks mom)!
In the spirit of the holiday, I’m excited to celebrate and make lucky treats! We’ll have to see what comes of that but Lucky Charms sound like an excellent place to start! (:
5. Pi Day! — March 14th
Okay, I hate math and even I can get excited for this one! It was the one day we could always convince our math teachers to let us throw a party, and who doesn’t want to do that when the only other option is geometry vs. calculus?
Plus, one year I made it my mission to learn as many numbers of pi as I could.. I didn’t get far.. but it still has a special place in my heart!
6. Trip to NYC!
As I’ve mentioned before, I work for my school as an event programmer. This month, I get to take a group of students to my favorite place, New York. The day is very low maintenance on my part AND I get paid. It’s seriously the best.
This time I want to have brunch at the Blue Box Cafe, but we’ll see.. I know reservations for the place are crazy but I’m excited to try anyways!
This is the best month for my favorite sweet treat! Seriously. I think you can use marshmallows in both your St. Patrick’s Day recipes AND your Easter ones (which by the way, will be right around the corner on April 1st!)!
So naturally, this month I will be very excite and probably stuffing my face with plenty of these pillow-y dreams. Yes, please, and thank you!
8. Egg Dying Partay!
Okay, as previously mentioned, Easter is right around the corner, so OBVIOUSLY the egg dying will need to ensue in March! I always loved doing this with my grandparents and am looking forward to being able to do it again this month. I think this could also be something really fun to do with friends as a way to destress. And you can immediately tell who the artistic ones are too!
My eggs always have as many colors as I can get on before they turn brown and naturally plenty of stickers. I’m sure this year will be no different (:
9. The End of the Cold Weather!
Thank goodness. I hate the cold and look forward to the rising temperatures! Walking (not speed walking) to class without a big bulky coat is the best and I can’t wait until it warms up to the point of being able to do work outside again! That’s my absolute favorite thing to do and I get to soak up some Vitamin D in the process. It’s a total win-win!
10. Throwing a Successful Taco Party!
This is another event I have planned for the month of March. Myself and another programmer do this in time with Midterms as a little stress reliever for those on campus. We plan to have tacos, queso, and of course, guac catered to campus as well as plenty of sweets and refreshments.
I can’t wait to crush the theme and have a totally aesthetically pleasing event.. yeah, I’m talking lots of gold, succulents, and tacos. That’s practically all of my dreams come true (:
And that’s about it! Of course there are so many other things to be excited about, but those are just a quick list of 10 I came up with. What are you excited about in March? Let me know in the comments below! I can’t wait to get my hands on a Shamrock Shake honestly..
I hope you are all having a fabulous week and..
Until next time,
