Hello!

Today I am finally getting around to posting this project that I have been putting off for quite a while. When we moved into our home, the bathroom mirror was just a basic slab of mirror hung on the wall. It’s nice because it’s very big, but it’s very boring. So, I decided to put some sleeping diy skills to the mirror to give our bathroom a fresh look!

Spring…pppsshhhhh. Here in Michigan we are experiencing Spring by date alone. It is April 12, and this is the first sunny, somewhat enjoyable day we’ve had so far this “spring.”  Fortunately, we have a warm front moving in, and are a few days away from possible 70 degree weather (wooohoooo!!).
But alas, amidst the dreary, gloomy, cold weather, something Spring related happened…the FabFitFun Spring box! I am sharing the reveal and my impression of the items in the box!

I drink wine throughout the year. As such, I found it fitting to make a winter sangria to switch things up rather than just drinking another glass of red wine. Why limit sangria to the summer? Is it not delicious all year round? Yes, yes it is.

To be honest, I have no idea what makes this a “winter” sangria, but it’s delicious, so let’s not focus on the name.

I used Martha Stewart’s recipe here, with a few variations.

Ever since graduating from nursing school in May of 2015, I have been incessantly adding books to my ‘to-read’ list and reading as much as possible. It feels amazing to curl up on my couch with a soft blanket and a good book and not have to worry about studying for the NCLEX or my latest nursing exam. As much as I loved learning to become a nurse, the elation I feel for not having to read another college text book…..ahhhhh. It make me anxious just thinking about it!

Reading for pleasure has been one of my favorite hobbies since I learned the alphabet. I absorbed words like a sponge, and that voracious appetite for books has never left. Now that I am an adult, daily life makes it hard to sit down and read like I want to. But that will change this year!

Without further ado, my own personal reading challenge for 2016!
