Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

1 – Day celebration for Spring Break. We explored Arizona Falls and had lunch at the Golden Corral, I think grown up should automatically get two weeks off too!
1 – That one pound I lost last month, I found it again. Boo!
4 – Projects complete
5 – Hours of interviews for my son to work at a camp this summer, yes I am a good mom and I got lots of studying done
6 – Tickets to the Improv to celebrate a family birthday
14 – Pieces of clothing from the thrift store, I like to call them treasures

739- Blog page views, Utah loves me
1090 – Words added to my new book, that’s more than a fifth of my 2015 goal in one month
Overall March was good and productive, I’m hoping I can say the same about April in the next couple of weeks. I would love to hear about how your month is going and the goals you are achieving!
.8 – Pounds lost. It’s not much, but it’s better than last month!
3.14 – Day we spent at the Science Center. Yep, we are that kind of nerdy.
4 – Saturday weigh ins with my friends. It’s amazing how some girl time makes standing on the scale a lot more fun, even on the bad weeks.
6 – Projects completed.
8 – Ladies dining for our girls night out. I even talked them into going to Frost Gelato afterwards.
11 – Days logging the food I ate. I need to get back in that habit this month.
24 – Hard boiled eggs to dye, although one of my kiddos opted to leave one white.
28 – Countries visited Easy As PIE (at least people from 28 countries).
46 – States represented as Easy As PIE visitors. Apparently I’m not very popular in Montana.
812 – Words added to my book. I am going to finish it this year! (unless I keep getting distracted)
1228 – Words added to my short story. I actually finished the rough draft and read the first couple of pages to my critique group. Now to decide on where to focus my attention, finishing my book or editing my story? Actually I just need to focus on writing

How did you slice your month and what do you have in store for April?
I know it’s normally March numbered, but I switched it up to Counting March for the A to Z Blog Challenge. Any of my numbers that I’m disappointed in, I’m blaming Spring Break.
1 – Number of pounds gained. I have two words for you, Spring Break! Actually I think the culprit is not tracking my food. I will be jumping back on that band wagon.
2 – Books read. Eragon and These Is My Words.
4 – Piano practices, and they were wimpy ones at that! (It’s Spring Break’s fault)
5- Articles written for the Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama (Spring Break)
7 – Family history names verified
8 – Scrapbook layouts finished (I could have finished those last two, but … you guessed it, Spring Break)
14 – Challenge projects finished (Spring Break)
23 – Blog posts, not too bad considering it was Spring Break
1183 – Page views! Thanks to you not slacking over Spring Break, it’s a new record.
I also use my monthly review to check how I’m doing on my New Year’s resolutions. I’m making slow progress with my goals. I’m finding peace in my search for direction.
