November & December Sliced

I keep getting more and more behind with this whole blogging thing, now I’m slicing November and December in the middle of January! But I’m glad to review the last too months regardless. Maybe this year I can come up with a schedule I can make happen.

Now that I’ve survived December and have a year of months sliced under my belt for 2013, I’m trying to wrap my head around the New Year. I’m still wrestling with setting my goals for this year so I can move forward and successfully slice another year’s worth of months.

Friday Favorites: March 22

I finally made it! Friday Favorites is back on Friday! We’ve spent the week chillin’ and relaxing.

  • Sleeping in! My favorite part of Spring Break, even if it’s only for a half hour or so.zoo favorites
  • We spent a full day at the zoo. I got in over 20,000 steps and still gained weight. Just because Kettle Corn tastes good, doesn’t mean it’s nice! Oh well, we had fun watching the elephant and the stork eat, and the burrowing owls hop around. Our favorites were the monkeys running and jumping all over the place.
  • I finished reading Deadweather and Sunrise. I even posted my review. Now to catch up with the other books I read this year.
  • I made a huge batch of homemade rolls. I normally make these for Thanksgiving and few other times a year. This time they are for dinner with a neighbor.

How did you spend your Spring Break? Did you go anywhere fun? Try any new crafts? Finish any projects? Please share so I can live vicariously through you!
