February Round-Up

Happy first day of March everybody! I know it’s totally a cliche to say “I can’t believe it’s March already,” but since February really is shorter than the other months, I think we get a free pass on that one. February was also WAY better and WAY busier than January, so it seemed to go by in 2 days instead of 29.


Between double birthdays AND Valentine’s Day in the same week and a college friend coming to visit, it was a really fun month! But I’ve also been dealing waking up at 2 am with debilitating stomach problems once or twice a week, so that’s been not-so fun. I went in for an ultrasound a couple weeks ago, and tomorrow’s my follow-up appointment to see if it’s gallbladder-related. (We’re 99.9% sure that it is, but we’re not sure if I’ll have to have it out or not.) Hopefully we’ll have some more information tomorrow!

Luckily I didn’t have any gallbladder issues this weekend, because it was jam-packed! We played Top Golf, went to a new coffee place (that’s part of an Austrian coffee company!) where I got a killer chai latte. Then we went to see Deadpool for the second time, which I really liked. NOT kid-friendly, but really funny, and such a nice break from the super “gritty” superhero movies that are all the rage right now. (Seriously, is anyone else over all the superheros hating each other constantly? It’s getting soooo old!) If you’re worried that Deadpool will be too gory for you, I’m super squeamish and I still enjoyed it… although I did close my eyes a few times. So please don’t hate me if you go see it and you totally hate it!

Between the busy moments, I’ve been journaling a lot, which is TOTALLY new for me. I’m usually the least consistent journal-er ever, but I’ve just been thinking of it as an “idea notebook,” so there’s less pressure to write a perfect description of every little thing that happened every single day. Plus I’ve been writing lists of good and bad things for each week, so I can look back and see good memories but also remember when I had that really bad gallbladder attack. So far it’s been working really well for me!


How are you guys doing lately? It’s starting to feel like spring here in Texas, which I am LOVING! Spring turns to summer really quickly here, so I’m trying to soak up all the cool breezes while they’re here. Speaking of Texas, I wrote a Houston City Guide over at The Collaboreat last month, and it was really fun! So if you’re coming to Houston soon, or just like reading about Texas, you should definitely check it out! 🙂


I hope you guys have a great week! xo
