Past, Present, & Future: A Month in Review

I wanted to let you all get to know me a bit better!  So, I’m doing a newsletter style update on my life for the last month and giving a look into what’s ahead! If you like this feature, please let me know in the comments– I would greatly appreciate that.

Every month I’ll post something like this on the first of the month. The categories of what I talk about might alter as I have more time to plan and as my habits change.  It’s fluid.  If you have any suggestions, I’d be happy to take them into consideration!

Past

In the beginning of the month, I went to Arizona to visit my best friend.  We went to the Phoenix Zoo where we rode a camel for 5 minutes and pet sting-rays!  After that, we wandered around the Desert Botanical Gardens which was beautiful. The day after, we flew to California to meet up with some of our friends.  We spent one day visiting iconic places in LA, ending the night at the Santa Monica Pier for dinner.  The next two days were spent between Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland.  We had so much fun and I didn’t want to go home!

On one of the days, the five of us wore matching shirts that we bought from Etsy.  You can check them out here.  We got so many compliments!

A short story with the premise of a couple meeting over their mutual love of Hamilton. I have a problem, I’m aware.

The entire Hamilton soundtrack. It’s all I listen to and I’m not even kidding.  One day I’ll go back to listening to Stressed Out -Twenty One Pilots and Adele, etc.  Until then, more Hamilton.

Recent Purchases

Future

Excited for

  • April’s UppercaseBox and Owlcrate

TV Shows I’m Loving
Heartbeat is a new show on NBC and it’s kind of fantastic.  But really only because I love procedurals and medical dramas. It’s a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see where it goes (it’s only on its 3rd episode).

Big News!
Guys, I’m seeing Hamilton & Aladdin!! It’s a New York weekend at the end of the month and I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t wait to tell you all about it during/after it happens. Does anyone have any recommendations for places to eat in NYC?  (We go to NYC every few years but never really know where to eat that isn’t a complete tourist trap PLEASE HALP)!

Follow me on Twitter (I like to think I’m funny) and Instagram for more up-to-date thoughts!  I hope you enjoyed this, it was a lot of fun to write.
