January 2023 Recap // ft. Books I Read, Goals Update, and More!

hey hey! It is Feb 2nd and I am back again this week with a monthly recap!! The first month of 2023 was crazy and full of stuff to do, learn, and having fun! I’m going to cover what I did, some pics, and also my playlist from this month! I’m not sure if I’m planning on doing these monthly…..but maybe… who knows? Anyway, lets get to the post!

pssst….make sure you’re on the actual website and not the WordPress Reader or Email 😉

January Playlist

A little life stuff

Went to my first dance…and it was so much fun! It was Tale as Old as Time themed, like Beauty and the Beast, and the table decor was AMAZING, the food was AMAZING and I took some horrible pictures haha…I was having to much funnnnn

Started my email list! This was one of my blog goals for this year and I’m so glad I got it done right off the bat! ( Subscribe to it HERE)

My goals…I’ve been doing pretty good on some of them, others…not as well. Figuring out a workout schedule has been tough, with Jiu jitsu on Mondays and Thursdays, school on Tuesdays, Youth on Wednesdays…I’ve been working out once a week instead of twice, as well as only practicing guitar once a week as well, so prioritizing time for these things is something on my to-do list for February.

I watched The Princess Bride for the first time since I convinced my babysitters to let me when I was 4 lol

Started watching the HP Movies! We got through the first 2 before my younger brother got scared…maybe we’ll finish in a few years 🙂

Went to my aunts baby shower..which was so fun and the cake was so pretty!!

Got makeovers! One of my mom’s friends does Mary Kay and we went to her house and did makeovers after school one day…and then went to our friends out and rolled down their huge hill, so that makeup didn’t last long lol
