What's New: March

READING: Just finished How to Be Single by Liz Tuccillo for my book club. I'm planning to write a review soon.

Our next book is The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende.

LISTENING: I'm in a CD Club at work. It's about 10 of us and each month we make a mixed CD for the whole group and meet up for happy hour to distribute them. It's a fun way to get a new variety of music every month. Good to Be Alive by Andy Grammer has been my favorite song lately.

WATCHING: The Walking Dead. This is always my number one recommended show for people. It's so much more than a zombie show.


EATING: On Sunday I went for brunch with my friend Abby at Betty Danger's Country Club which is this hilarious restaurant, themed as a Tex Mex Country Club, complete with a mini golf course and a ferris wheel.

Plaid Morning Hash
Morning Margarita

DRINKING: My dad bought tickets for Cody and I to go to Winterfest, a Craft Brewer's Guild event with over 100 breweries. It was an incredible event in a train depot in St. Paul and Cody was practically manic with excitement over all of the beers to try.

Also, my favorite new boxed wine. Bota Box Nighthawk.

WORKING: March is such a ridiculously crazy and busy month at our school. However, memes do make me feel better about it.

Somehow I've found myself on Budget and Facilities committees that meet late into the night. 

Today and tomorrow are also 12 hour days of parent/teacher conferences.

Aaaaaaand to top it all off, it's testing season, which always makes me want to cry a little bit.

ENJOYING: Last Friday we went to a UofM Gopher Hockey game with my sister and her boyfriend. The Gophers won in overtime and my sister ate a bowl of ice cream bigger than her head. Good times.
Yes, we used a selfie stick 


WISHING: Lusting after new cameras but am totally clueless. Recommendations?

PLANNING: A weekend to Duluth this weekend with some friends! It's about 2.5 hours from the Twin Cities on the shore of Lake Superior. We got an AirBnb and we'll visit breweries great restaurants. 

Linking up with Kristen and Gretchen
What's New With You

  2. Hey Carrie! Thanks for stopping by my page! I couldn't reply back to you because your a no-reply blogger! :)

    I love those ecards. Too funny. At one point in my life I wanted to be a teacher and now I just cringe when I hear friends talk about their teaching careers. I seriously think the parents are just as bad if not worse than the kids sometimes?! Haha! Have fun on your weekend trip!

  3. I have wanted to watch The Walking Dead! I haven't watched a single episode, so I'd have to start from the beginning. I just need to convince my husband to watch it with me...

  4. Ooh, I'm looking forward to your review. I just saw the movie last weekend, and didn't realize it was based off of a book.
