March 1! Plus Things You Maybe Didn’t Know About Me




thinking out loud

March 1! March 1! I’m not one to get ridiculously excited about dates on the calendar but March 1 is always a big one for me. My friend Lisa and I always refer to it as our unofficial start to spring as we pray every year that we are super close to warm weather and flip flop season! So yay for March 1!

If you didn’t already know that I loved March 1, here are a few other things you maybe didn’t know about me too.

I’m a lefty. They say lefties are more creative, do you think that holds true? As a kid, I loved art projects, coloring, and drawing. Honestly, the sight of Crayola markers and crayons still excites me and puts an instant smile on my face when I see them. When my son was old enough to use crayons and do art projects, I bought every art box, Crayola product, and paint set possible — we still have them all in the closet!

And I guess since I’m some sort of writer, that creativity is still there, just without the markers.

I’m a constant radio station changer. Always have been, always will be. And with XM Satellite Radio? I think my issue has gotten even worse. I just HAVE TO keep changing the station! What if I miss a really good song even if I already like the song I’m listening to? What if something better is on?! Like an 80’s classic?! An even better 80’s classic than the one we are currently listening to?! I cannot miss it. I need to know what else is playing at the same time on the other stations.

I’ve never been a Sephora shopper. That may seem weird to you given how much I like to discuss makeup/beauty products/skincare but Sephora overwhelms me. I have always preferred to have a go-to makeup artist at one of the beauty counters in a department store who I enjoy chatting with, who knows what they are doing, and can recommend the best products for me. In my opinion, it’s the same as having your favorite hairstylist. You wouldn’t take your hair just to anyone, you know?

My makeup artist turned friend, Jill at Dior, has been my go-to makeup artist for like 12 years now. Sometimes yes, I do pop into Sephora to see what they have yet still, I’m overwhelmed. I do like that they will make you samples of whatever you want to try though, so that’s nice.

And here’s an interesting one about me which I remembered after seeing this link about Whole Foods Secrets Revealed. In the article, it says the best day to shop at Whole Foods is on Wednesday’s because that’s the biggest sale day of the week. Once I read that, I instantly remembered that back in high school, I learned that the best day to shop at the Gap was also ON WEDNESDAY. That’s when everything would go on sale so it became the day that every week my friends and I would head to the Gap after school just to see what went on sale and what we could buy! Ah, the memories. Now I think I need to pay extra close attention to all of the other stores because I bet that Wednesday is a universal sale day.

On This Day:

3/1/17: Recent Eats-  So many of my favorite foods in this post including Linda’s Fudge Cake. I was just talking about Linda’s Fudge Cake yesterday and how I need a slice!

3/1/16: Letting It Go – Woah. I had no idea that I published this post two years ago until I looked up my posts to do the On This Day section. I can’t even reread it. While I know that letting it go was what I felt I needed to do at the time emotionally and for the Bar Mitzvah, I also learned after the fact that sometimes we don’t have to force ourselves to do what we think is right, what we think is the kinder, more positive route. Lesson learned. See My Story To Tell after reading Letting It Go. I will now forever only do what I feel I want to do, not what I think I should do.

3/1/15: The Mental Breakdown Of A Routine Treadmill Run – Still one of my more popular running posts! I’m happy to say that I’ve really reached a point of truly enjoying my treadmill runs. Although, I will also say that running, especially on the treadmill, requires a lot of mental strength, not just physical.

3/1/14: Peanut Butter Lover’s Day- Today is Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! Remember when I was obsessed with Crunch Time peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co.?

Things about me you may not have known plus on this day on the blog! #makeup #thinkingoutloud #sephora #Dior #peanutbutter #march Click To Tweet

    I am a LEFTY too….and so is B–but randomly last night he told me he uses a scissors as a righty! I told him he was lucky–because scissors were not made for us. LOL.

    I am all over the place with Peanut Butter. Creamy/crunchy–the brand lately is PB and Co.

    Enjoy your day!

      remember those scissors?! I was always able to use the righty scissor with my left hand but I remember they had the left scissors in elementary school labeled in the box lol. I can’t use a scissor in my right hand even though I can do a lot of things as a righty, even though I’m a lefty.

    I’m right handed. I loved craft projects as a kid though. Crayola is the best for crayons and markers! No other brand even comes close to it!

    I’m obsessed with peanut butter but have never tried anything from Peanut Butter & Co. Now I need to try them out.

    Hehe very interesting about the leftie thing! I actually have noticed that ALL my leftie friends are total science nerds hehe and not very into being “creative” in the traditional sense. Cool tip about WF! Also smart of them to do it on the day that people are LEAST LIKELY to grocery shop LOL

    I definitely buy into the idea that lefties are more creative. My entire family is right-handed and more analytical-minded. Sephora overwhelms me also – I am pretty sure the last time I went there, I got overwhelmed by all the choices and then Ryan practically had a small panic attack from everything.

    I’m a lefty too 🙂 Right now I am digging a peanut butter I found while traveling through TX. It’s actually almond butter and it has probiotics added to it and it’s delish! Happy weekend!
