Signs of Spring!
It’s hard to believe that it is March and yet the weather here feels like April! I hope everyone did well with their goals for February. (I’ll be sharing about my capsule wardrobe later on in this post!) Next up! Pictures from the Astronomy Day or BOBfest at our local Science Center. 🙂
We began our day at the Astronomy Day event. This included lectures, presentations, and (thankfully!) a family room of astronomy related activities for kids. (I look forward to checking out lectures and presentations with D when he is older.) Declan loved playing with the rockets and astronauts pictured above. This day was perfect for him because he is very interested in the solar system. Thanks to Little Einsteins, he knows the order of the planets and sings a super cute song while sharing this info with others. <3
Another awesome perk of the day was receiving three FREE tickets to the Science Center. This was really nice since we hadn’t been since last year and there was a new exhibit on nocturnal animals there through June.
Heart Attack alert!
So funny story with this guy. I was waiting around to get a picture of him on my phone and John kept telling me, “He is too busy swimming around. He doesn’t want attention from us.” Just after he said this, this guy jumps up and splashes me and John. I scream—thinking it’s a sound only audible to dogs, but alas, one of the staff there comes up and checks on us. We all had a good laugh about it after realizing that I wasn’t going to die. 😉
We are friends now. He let me pet him. <3
After the Science Center, we headed to the theatre to see The Lego Batman Movie. It was pretty funny, but a bit long. If you have squirmy kids, I advise waiting this one out and seeing it at home. We definitely need to add this one to our collection though!
We recently checked out the new(ish) park in downtown Hickory. Here are a few pics from that day:
D loved making music there!
This spinny thing was his favorite.
Remember last month when I told you guys that I would be cleaning out my closet?! Well, I did!
I began by emptying out my closet and dresser drawers. I went through everything! This is why it took me so long to get to where I am now.
I can now close drawers and pick out outfits in a matter of minutes. I’m still working on a list of all of my items and have a few things that I need to add to my wardrobe. I probably have fewer pairs of shoes than most women. :/ I’m thinking 3 and 1 doesn’t fit. So that’s definitely a problem. (I want to have 4-5.) So you’re probably wondering, What is a capsule wardrobe? It’s pretty simple! You can make your own rules, but it’s all about wearing only what you love and keeping your wardrobe fresh with looks that are timeless. It’s your job to decide what you love. This is very popular with minimalists because they already see the importance of living with less in the pursuit of truly having more. It’s a lovely idea and I’m thrilled to be pursuing it now. I’ll update you all again soon! <3
1) Commit to working out 3-5 times a week.
This one is huge for me because I’ve only been doing stretches for years now due to so much pain. Thankfully, some of that pain is more manageable and I believe that I’m ready to create a workout program that works for me. Prayers and good thoughts are always appreciated! <3
2) Get Declan signed up for Spring Soccer.
Tis the season! Soccer season that is! 😉 We have decided to check out the rec. department this year and see how that goes! I’ll have plenty of pics to share soon!
3) Introducing Charis Blooms! My new Etsy store going live!
I put up the announcement on Wednesday, but wanted to share here that one of the other changes of the blog is that now you’ll be able to purchase lovely diffuser necklaces to diffuse your favorite oils on the go and fashionable teething necklaces for you and your little teether! 😉 Stay tuned next week and via my social media platforms for more info!
Whew…That was a lot of information! Hopefully, soon I’ll master this only blogging once a week thing without reaching nearly 800 in word count. :/
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Be safe out there!
