Monthly Goals: April

Happy Friday friends! I'm here with my monthly goals for April and am planning on being pretty lax about these. We are all in survival mode and there may be some days where I don't accomplish a single one of these goals, and that's okay! As long as I am actively working towards them.
Drink More Water: I don't know about you, but this picture above pretty much summed up my life the last few weeks of March! Coffee, coffee and more coffee, followed by wine at night. And I definitely was not feeling my best! My goal is to drink half my body weight in water daily this month. 
Move My Body Every Single Day: It might be gardening, a neighborhood walk, a run or some yoga... but my plan is to move my body every single day for 30 minutes. 
Read 4 Books: Here's hoping!
Check 3 House Projects Off Our List: Living in an older house, we seem to have this never-ending list of things that need to be done. Our usual excuse of "we'll get to that when we have time" doesn't really apply at the moment, so I'm hoping we can get a few things accomplished.
Zoom With Friends a Couple Times a Week: I have had several Zoom chats with friends this week and it is helping me to keep from going insane. The good thing about everyone being required to stay home is that we all have time to chat with each other. None of us have anywhere to be! I'm hoping we keep up with these because it makes all of us feel so much better!

Today I'm linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites. I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Pomegranate, Pear, and Candied Pecan Layered Salad

Since being given the "shelter in place" order, we have been doing nothing but stuffing our faces with food. We aren't used to being home all the time and the temptation to eat is always around us! I've been trying to counteract our unhealthy snacks by eating more salads for lunch and dinner. This one we made last week and it was a big hit! Here's hoping you enjoy it as much as we did 😀

Book Review: March

Hi there! I was originally thinking I would have a lot more time on my hands to read some books this month, but I was WRONG! Anyone else? I still made it through 3 books, but I can't say I read one of them cover to cover.. it was more of a "pick and choose". Let's get to it!

Life Lately

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I heard the following quote over the weekend on Rachel and Dave Hollis' podcast Rise Together:
We are all in a rush to get back to normal life, but I'm trying to soak up the good parts of what we have right now. Here are a few pictures of some of the fun we've been having around here:

Friday Favorites

Good morning friends! I know I speak for all of us when I say this week felt more like a month. Whew!

Today I am sharing a random mix of things we have been loving lately:
