This Month In My Bullet Journal

This Month I Watched:

Forever My Girl – I bought this as a present to myself for my birthday. I absolutely loved this movie so much, the book not so much. It was probably because I watched the movie first then read the book.

Top Chef seasons 12 & 13 – As you’ve noticed I started binge watching Top Chef at the beginning of the year and I’m finally at season 14. After this, I’m not sure what I’m going to watch. So I want you to help me decide.

Natalie Wood: An American Murder Mystery – I absolutely loved Natalie in A Rebel Without A Cause and I’ve watched different documentaries on her death so this once was pretty interesting.

Jeepers Creepers 3 – so we found this on Netflix or maybe it was Hulu. It takes place between Jeepers Creepers 1 & 2 and I felt like maybe the screenwriter didn’t watch either movie because it made no sense.

This Month In My Life:

  • My birthday was on April 9. My husband had flowers delivered to work. It was a really big surprise. The Littles made my birthday cake. My sister got me a new purse and wallet. And my mom got me tickets to see Chris Young in September.
  • Dante was finally taken to the vet. The vet gave my sister a discount because we took him in. He has a broken paw. He is on medication for the pain. Another dog (white one pictured) showed up she only answers to Few (ugly in english). We tried changing her name but she won’t listen. She’s a funny dog, she picks fights with all the bigger dogs.
  • I finally update some of my profile pictures on social media. I rarely take pictures of myself because I never feel like I’ll have a good picture day. One of them is really old but I really like it.
  • Little 1 wants to start binge watching all of Marvel movies so we can Infinity War so that might be what we’ll work towards now that school is almost over.
  • Little 2 will be graduating on Thursday from Pre-K. We went outfit shopping and we found the perfect dress.
  • Little 2 has been struggling with the husband being away. He is in the work release program at the jail so he is able to talk to us at work and things like that. But we haven’t seen him and she’s having a really hard time with it.
  • I bought myself the coolest cup ever at Target. The Littles are obsessed with it and it makes drinking coffee in the morning a better experience.It changes color with the heat so it is so cool.
  • Little 2 came home with lice again. So this makes it round 3 of lice just this year. I was able to get rid of them completely with some home remedies.
  • The girls and I got matching shoes. My mother in law has the same pair so we said we’ll be “twinning”.
