My Month In Review || January

Hello friends, and welcome to a review of January. I was thinking that this was going to be a boring post because not a lot happened, but as I was looking at the calendar, a bunch of things did happen. In essence, January was very slow, but also flew by.

What I Did…

  • I got a perm, which was interesting! I’m not going to go into detail because I already wrote about it here.
  • I got a manicure with my mom and sisters, which was fun!
  • I embroidered on a denim jacket I have, and I like the way it turned out.
  • I did a pottery clss with my mom, and we made mugs with designs on them. It was the first time I had done pottery, and I enjoyed it.
  • I redesigned PoppySeeds, and I’m super happy with it! The menu, logo, color, and fonts are all updated.
  • we went to visit my brother and his family and it was super fun! We got tacos (delicious!) watched movies, and went to a playground, which was really fun.
  • I started getting into film photography. My brother taught me some stuff while we were visiting, and I learned some new tips and tricks.
  • I started rollerblading- a slightly dangerous hobby, but fun nonetheless!

What I Read…

  • Anne’s House Of Dreams– I cannot get enough of this series. I have read this book so many times, and I never get tired of it. I also read a few others in the Anne Of Green Gables series.
  • The Responsibility of Ruffles– This is a light, fluffy, mostly plotless book. But I still like it. It was published in 1913, and it’s about a family and their friends on vacation. It’s sweet, charming, and an entertaining read.
  • Maggie and The Dead Don’t Dance– This is a series by Charles Martin, and it’s SO GOOD, yet really sad. It’s well-written and has a great plot line.

What I Listened To

  • Tell Ya Later– a podcast started by Will Ryan and Katie Leigh, and now hosted by Katie Leigh. It’s an interesting and fun podcast. She has a lot of guests come on, mostly in the voiceacting and entertainment world.
  • The soundtrack from A Week Away– the remix of Baby Baby and Dive are my personal favorites!
  • Heart In Motion album by Amy Grant
  • Signs Of Life album by Stephen Curtis Chapman
  • Geoff Moore & The Distance Greatest Hits

Goals for February:

  • Go to a college visit! That will be later in the month, and I’m really excited!
  • Celebrate Valentines Day- I have a few ideas for super fun valentines for my family…more on that later!
  • Go Running 2x a week
  • Blog at least once a week
  • Get some of my film developed
  • Drink more water
  • Read Adventures in Oddity, and there are a few other books I want to get from the library.

Random Things to Celebrate In February:

  • World Hippopotamus Day on the 15
  • National Tater Tot Day on the 2
  • National Umbrella Day on the 10
  • National Strawberry Day on the 27 (I wonder why that’s not in say, June, when there’s actually strawberries growing?)
  • National White Shirt Day on the 11

That’s it for now! What did you do last month, and what are you looking forward to this month? I’d love to chat in the comments!

  2. Hi BetsyJane, I’m Lily! It’s really nice to meet you (totally stumbled upon your blog by accident lol.) That’s so cool you did a pottery class! I have a sister-in-law who loves doing it, though I haven’t had a chance to try. Hope your month of February is going well 🙂

  3. I can’t figure out how to reply to your last comment so I will do it this way: *ahemm*
    Yeah! I’d be interested to see what you did.
    Awe, sadness? Though, that is good since sometimes books need a bit of sad.


  4. I forgot to take a pic of the completed jacket, I’ll have to do that soon!
    Ooh! That’s a good one, there’s some sad parts though.

  5. Did you share a pic of your jacket on your blog? That’s so neat that you embroidered it!
    I love the new look of your blog! It’s super nice to look at.
    Oh! Cool, I really like the Anne Books too! I think I am on Anne’s House of dreams actually, I just finished the 3rd book last month.
