March Favorites + Gratitude

March 30, 2018

Can you believe we are a quarter of the way through 2018? Let that sink in for a second. It’s time for my monthly roundup of things I loved this month. Here are some of my favorite things and what I am grateful for this month.

Favorite fitness event

Have you seen my Color Run recap? I brought my best friend and husband and we had a blast! Check out this post and see why you should check it out in your area.

Favorite Instagram post

That one time I played the Little Mermaid in Costa Rica…

Favorite margarita

Colton and I checked out Bar Manzanilla at Big Beat Dallas in Irving during their soft opening. This jalapeno hibiscus margarita is what dreams are made of. The food there is also wonderful, so go check it out!

Favorite weekday event

Every Wednesday Sundown at Granada hosts weekly free movies on their rooftop. Rain or shine, you can enjoy some of your favorite classic movies. This week, we saw Spice World. I haven’t sang and laughed that hard in so long. Next week, Brandon Does Dallas is hosting the movie,  Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.

Favorite rash guard

I spent 8 days of March in Costa Rica. Five of those days I was learning to surf. One of my best purchases last  month was this  Long Sleeve Rash Guard Swimsuit I got on Amazon for under $25.


  1. We are all moved in, unpacked, and settled in to our house in Dallas. As much as I loved north Dallas, I am really loving the new location. A lot.
  2. My brother and sister in law are having a baby, so we will get a niece and a nephew or 2 nieces this year. I know the answer to that, but they haven’t announced it just yet.
  3. My best friend took us to Costa Rica and I learned to surf. Like legitimately learned how to ride waves in to the shore.
  4. On March 27, Colton and I have officially been together 16 years (minus are 6 week hiatus senior year where 3 of the 6 weeks we were “talking” again, just not an official couple).
  5. Sunday I get to celebrate Easter with my family and all the siblings on Colton’s side. We rarely get to all get together, but we will Sunday.

What are you grateful for this month? What is something you can’t get enough of in March? Leave me a comment below.

    What a fun post! The Costa Rica trip photos are great; at first I thought you were a mermaid. 🙂 Enjoy your family’s Easter gathering.

    Isn’t it nice to be all settled in and love your new place. Just in time for Easter. The trip photos look awesome and you had a great time from the looks of them.

    I love doing the Color Run! I’ve done it three times now and every time I’m amazed at what a pain it is to get out of my hair. Ha!

    I love that Little Mermaid picture! That has always been one of my favorite movies since I was a little girl, I would have totally done that picture too! The margarita looks so yummy too! I’ve done the Color Run twice and have loved it both times! Hope you have a great weekend!

    Love the Ariel shot- glad you had fun in Costa Rica! Congrats on 16 years, and I hope you have a fantastic Easter weekend. 🙂 Those movie nights sound like such fun. I do love Spice World.

    Congrats on the new niece or nephew! My first niece or nephew is due this fall and my two best friends are having babies soon too! 2018 is turning into the year of the baby in my world lol.

    I love your March Favorites. The color run looks like so much fun.

    That rashguard is so cute! What did you think of surfing? I have always loved to see everyone do the color run, one of these days I will do it too! Have an amazing weekend!

    A Color Run sounds like so much fun!! My husband and I are just getting into running (we did our first half marathon this winter), so I definitely want to do one eventually. 🙂

  • Emily March 31, 2018 at 11:47 am

    Happy belated anniversary! Congrats on the new niece or nephew! The Color Run sounds like a fun event. Maybe one day I will do it too. I hope you have a great weekend.

    That Instagram was such a fun post! Loving the look of that margarita too, I could definitely go one of those right about now!

    Girl you look SO much like a mermaid on those rocks. You’re looking fabulous! Rock it girl. 🙂 🙂

    Congratulations on sixteen years with Colton. My hubby and I just had our 16 year-aversary together, too. 🙂
