February is over ALREADY?? I know it’s 2-3 days shorter than the other months, but it really went by faster than I could keep up. I had planned to make a king cake recipe for Mardi Gras and do some more home decor posts per your requests in my reader survey, but alas, life got in the way. Not to worry, it was all fun and games!
I actually ended up going to Mardi Gras in New Orleans to visit friends on a whim – Kyle and I were exhausted from the trip but had such a great time. We also celebrated his birthday, Valentine’s Day, and went to see Yo Yo Ma perform with the Houston symphony, so really we got to spend a lot of quality time together. It’s hard for us to say no to spending time with friends sometimes and just get time alone, but this month really allowed us to take time for our relationship which we both think is really important.
Speaking of friends, we had THREE couples of friends get engaged this month! I am beyond excited for each and every one of them. I’ve known them all since the beginning of their relationships and cannot wait to celebrate their love for each other in the coming year! I hope you’re good with wedding/engagement/bridal ideas because I’ve added a category underneath the party and holiday tab that I know will be getting a lot of traffic!
Enough about February, what are we going to be seeing in March?
- Beauty and the Beast is coming out and I have a sewing tutorial that is going to be a dream.
- Like I said before, I’m going to be working on some engagement gifts, so be sure to keep your eye out for more diamond themed everything!
- I may or may not be making my own wine… !!!
- I may try my hand at making my own candles. This has been on my DIY wish list for years and I think I’m finally going to just DO IT.
Did you miss any February posts? March is here and I’d hate to see you miss anything!
