Looking Forward to March + Goals

Y'all. I don't like Summer and Charlotte starts Summer in March so I don't usually get excited for this month, but this March is going to be so fun (and so tiring) and I can't wait for it all! I already started the weekend off with a bang in Nashville this past weekend for Alyssa's Bachelorette party and it was such a fun weekend! Even if I did come home and get diagnosed with strep and now I'm writing this from the couch with all the lights off and curtains drawn.

Moving into the rest of the month, I have quite a few great things happening:

LASIK EYE SURGERY! I've been looking forward to this since I found out what LASIK was. So... when my mom got the surgery 22 years ago. I have been in glasses since I was 5 and started in contacts in middle school. Sometimes, I meet people and we bond over "being blind" and I ask what their prescription is and then I get "oh, I'm a -2".........................................

As someone who wears a -7.5, it's funny and little heartbreaking. I also found out during my consultation that I'm even worse than the prescription I'm wearing and it should be more of a -8.25 so needless to say I'm SO READY to get this surgery done! If you see me in person before March 16, I will definitely be talking about it incessantly. #sorrynotsorry

Baby Bria's first birthday. She's not even my baby but I find myself asking all the time how a year has gone by already?! She turns one on the 19th and her party is a few days later and I can't wait to celebrate a whole year of one of the cutest babies on the planet.
Chicago! One of my best friends is getting married this year and I'm going up to Chicago to go wedding dress shopping/do some planning over Easter weekend and I'm just SO excited! I was also able to work out perfect flights where I get there Friday morning and come home Monday morning without ever having to wake up early or take PTO :)
Katherine giving her speech at our wedding!
On top of these big things, I also have some fun nights planned with friends and a stewardship work event this weekend.

Since I have such a packed March schedule, I'm going to set some smaller goals for the month to keep working towards my word: Thrive.

one //  Blog 2 - 3 times per week. I've been doing a lot better the last few weeks and I have quite a few things in my drafts so I'm feeling good about this one!

two // Finish my 4 library books by March 20. I just finished Where'd you go, Bernadette? and I've got four more library books on the nightstand: The H Spot, Nasty Women, The Perfect Stranger, and The Good Daughter. 

three // Complete the BBG 12 Week Challenge! I have 4 weeks left of BBG Round 1 and I'm so motivated to finish. Hopefully this strep throat won't knock me out for too long so I can get through the last four weeks!
four // Switch out our decor. It's still technically winter so my winter decor is still fine, but it's been pretty hot in Charlotte already so it feels weird to still have my snowmen and penguins out even though I love them so much.

five // Clean out/organize my closet. I'm going to be fully transparent and say that I don't know if this will happen, but I really want to clean out my closet and get rid of things that no longer fit or I don't like anymore. I did a little bit of this with our minimalist challenge last month (more to come!) but there's still more to do because I have my eye on a few new spring/summer pieces!

What are your goals for March?
