March 2018 Recap


HIGHLIGHTS + NOTES
  • My mom's youngest sister and her family confirmed that they're flying out from England to attend our wedding here!!! I rarely get to see them, so this means *a lot* to me. I think they'll be spending two or three extra weeks here too ☺️
  • ALL THE WEDDING STUFF // Starting pre-marital counseling, a FaceTime call with our videographer (my fiancé didn't have time so I had to do it alone 😬), visiting Crate & Barrel to put stuff on our registry, and a food tasting!
  • I'm starting my third year of women's mentoring at church, and we'll be going through a handful of Psalms with the help of Sing a New Song by Lydia Brownbeck. This makes me both nervous and excited because 1) poetry is the hardest for me to study and 2) there are *150* psalms but 3) I'm not doing it alone! I get to hear from other sisters!

BOOKS I READ 📚

FIVE books read + 1,255 pages

If you want to see some reading statistics or read my reviews, check out my post on books I read in March!


FAVORITE MUSIC 🎵

MOVIES WATCHED 🎞️
  • Black Panther (2018) // SO GOOD.
  • Brink (1998) // I'm hoping to watch/re-watch all the Disney Channel Original Movies this year, so I started with one I've seen parts of. This was so cheesy but because I grew up while DCOM was becoming a thing, I love it for the nostalgia. Also, my fiancé is the same age as me but he hasn't watched a single one of these?! So of course I'm exposing him to my childhood, haha.
  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) // I was a little skeptical going in, but WOW this was so much fun and hilarious. A lot less creepy than the original, from what I remember! I have never been a Jack Black fan, but I'll make an exception for him in this one.
  • Ready Player One (2018) // I haven't read the book yet 🙊so I can't compare the two, but I really liked it. The story was pretty immersive, even though I didn't understand a lot of the gamer references. There were some parts where I literally gasped out loud and looked my fiancé with excitement because of the twists that happened. I will eventually read the book, hopefully soon so I can spot all the differences!

I thought I only watched two movies this month but wow, four! I normally don't watch a lot of TV or movies, but my fiancé loves it so it's what we do when we get the chance to hang out. These were all movies I watched with him, haha.


THINGS I WROTE 📝


FAVORITE POSTS FROM AROUND THE WEB
I only have one for the month of March: "Everyone is Going Through Something" by Kevin Love, a basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. To see him honestly speaking (well, writing!) on his mental health while society holds him at such a high standard speaks so loudly to me.
