How I Did on My March Goals and Setting New Goals for April

I had no idea what March was going to actually be like when I set my goals and I honestly did a horrible job on almost all of them but I am giving myself a total pass since life has been just beyond crazy.

Health/ Wellness:
Track my food everyday-- Nope! I completely failed at this.Workout 3 times a week-- I think I did mange to do this most weeks. Drink 70 ounces water daily-Yes!Try using essential oils- Yes!
Clean the car-- Check! Though it has been so muddy you can hardly tell I cleaned it inside and out. Organize the laundry room- Check! Swap out Ian's flooring-- Check! 
Sort through both game cabinets and the bookshelves; getting rid of those things we've outgrown-- Check! We got rid of so much but we were/ will be able to re-gift a lot of it to new homes.
Blogging: Continue updating old posts each day making sure link works and there are pinnable images-- Check! 
Family/Fun: Call school and set up a day for Alec to shadow-- Check!  (then the school shut down and we…

All the Feels in March

It's the last Monday of the month and time to link up with X-tremely V at The Feels.  Each month the same questions are asked and the catch is that all our questions have to be answered based on the current month!

I don't have to tell you that this has been a crazy month and has felt like it was 10 times longer than a regular month.  So much so that I found it nearly impossible to even remember the beginning of March!

Favorite meal this month-- Our traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner that I only ever make for St. Patrick's day.

Favorite Movie/ TV Show/ Book--

Movie: Forever My Girl-- It was like a chick lit romance novel come to life that I found on Amazon.

Tv Show:Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist; I wasn't so sure about this show at first since people around her just randomly burst into song but I really do love it!

Book: I read 11 pretty good books this month (see my full list here!) and while it's always hard to pick a favorite I'd have to say Regretti…

Crock Pot Hamburger Soup

I took a few photos when I made this recipe back in the late fall but I had forgotten to write down my recipe so I had to recreate my recipe using my photos and I think the second time around this soup might have been even better!

A hearty soup is perfect for these cool evenings we're still having here in New England and they're a great way to keep a nice low- point Weight Watcher's dinner too.

This meal comes together so easy and cooking it in the crock pot all day makes the house smell great by dinnertime.

1/4 onion; diced fine
1 tsp. minced garlic
