Happy Tuesday, friends! It’s absolutely CRAZY to think that March is already here… where, oh where has the time gone?! At least spring break’s only 2 weeks away, so I really can’t complain.
For those of you who joined the S by S fam in February, welcome!! I’m so happy you’re here 🙂 I started my monthly round-ups last month as a fun way to get a little more personal on here, and share some life experiences that happened that month along with recapping my fave blog posts of the month. I created them as a fun way to look back on the month & reflect on all the blessings. They’re as much for just me to look back on later on as fun little posts for you guys to read! I also include all the links for you guys to shop things I mention, especially my favorite products of the month.
This month’s been a fun one! Some of my favorite blog posts went up this month, so I’m excited to recap those for y’all. On top of that, this month’s been full of fun new experiences (and YUMMY FOOD 😉 )
Akash & I kicked off February with some good ol’ country dancing! I’d been a few times before, but it was Akash’s first time at Hurricane Harry’s, the dance hall we have here in College Station. Nothing I love more than experiencing new things with this boy. We may have looked like a couple of complete idiots, but it was so much fun!
This past month has been FULL of new recipes & experimenting in the kitchen. I baked my first pie at the beginning of the month and now I can’t stop! You can definitely say I’ve found a new hobby. The one in the first picture^^ is a pecan pie recipe from one of my absolute favorite bloggers, Hayley. She shared it around Thanksgiving & I had it bookmarked since then. If you’re a pecan pie fan, try it out- it’s to die for.
I’ve been really loving trying new recipes- my only wish is that I could eat more so I could cook more!
Please ignore the low-quality pictures, haha!
For Valentine’s Day, Akash & I had a wonderful dinner at my favorite restaurant in College Station, Christopher’s. He brought me flowers and chocolate, so you could say I’m a happy girl. 🙂
If any of you are in the College Station area, Christopher’s is so good– definitely a must try! A lot of nice fine dining places don’t give you a ton of food, but that’s totally not the case at Christopher’s. I know the picture doesn’t look totally appetizing, but trust me- it’s seriously so good. You get a full plate of food, and everything’s absolutely amazing. You won’t regret it!
I got to see my sweet friend Lauren while she was in town for only a few days! Lauren & I have so much in common, so it’s always so fun catching up with her.
I had so much fun collabing with one of my sweet blogger friends, Morgan from The Vixen Blog. I got to do my first giveaway, too, which was so fun! The blog post is here in case you missed it!
In case you missed it, I shared this post, all about what’s in my makeup bag!
I shared all of my favorite pieces for spring in this post! I’m still in love with this clementine crossbody- so happy about this purchase!
The first half of February included a swarm of Valentine’s Day outfit posts! This one was one of my favorites, featuring this pretty olive dress.
