A few shots from March, a month that I'm excited to leave behind me. Like most of the country, we're still very much in the grips of winter- it has snowed every day this week- and I'm just one in a chorus of many, singing the same song of "where's spring?"

Thanks for all the positive thoughts last week regarding our apartment hunt, we got the place we looked at and are looking forward to: no more wall-to-wall carpets (the bane of my existence), being within walking distance of something other than a gas station, and living in a space that lends itself better to socializing. I'm hoping this also means that we'll be able to get Zeb (our other cat) back, because Zephyr is pretty darn lonely. And clingy. We're not moving until early summer, but I've already started planning. I'm ready for a fresh start, we both are. How was your month? Anything exciting happening in April?

I'll be working on my recap of the Whole 30 this weekend, if there is anything specific you'd like me to address, please let me know, either in the comments or on Facebook.

I say good riddance to March too! I'm hoping April brings us more sunshine, and less of that other white stuff which I dare not speak its name. ;-)

We're apartment hunting and vacation planning this month, so hopefully it'll lead to more exciting things to come!

April is going to be an exciting month for me - I'm making the move to LA! Scary at the same time though.
I am excited to read about your Whole 30 experience!

with you on the weather front, sister. SF has decided to tease us with gloriously sunny looking days, with freezing winds and foggy evenings. WTF, mother nature?

Congrats on the new diggs! It's always so exciting to start planning a new living space. I get so antsy to get started.

Love those shoes!

Grey said...

What a happy looking cat! My Lupin definitely agrees with Zephyr: head scratches are the best.

I'm excited to hear more about your trip to the CMU closet, because it looks ridiculously amazing! And also, I'm so abysmal at commenting, but I love following another Pittsburgh-based blogger. It's great to see which places you choose for outfit photos and to read about your adventures around the city! I'm glad you found an apartment you love. (Hardwood floors were a must for me as well!)

Hi Julie!
I am so excited for your Whole 30 Recap. I decided a few days ago to do a Healthy Eating Challenge for the month of April focusing on whole foods and trying to cut out Wheat, Dairy, & sugar and can't wait to hear how yours went! Thanks for the inspiration!
