What I’m into (March 2014)

what I'm into March

Linking up with Leigh Kramer for this fun monthly post!

Flowers, everywhere.

But especially in my house. I bought my first potted plant in a while, a rananculus. I really wish they named such a pretty flower something that sounds a lot less like “tarantula.”

I’ve had it for a week and it hasn’t died yet which gave me the confidence to start a Green Thumb Pinterest board. I’ve also decided that Trader Joe’s flowers are a worthwhile budget item.


Easter candy.

Specifically, Whoppers Robin Eggs. After my Whole 30, I kept my sugar intake reasonable. It seemed a new lifestyle had really taken hold. But then spring rolls around, and for some reason buying Whoppers feels justifiable because they look like robin’s eggs.

Following eating_whole on Instagram for simple, healthy meal and snack ideas. My recent candy binges suggest I need a little healthy inspiration in my life, and this feed has been a great source- most of the time. Sometimes I’m discouraged by her dedication, usually while I’m looking at her pictures of vegetables with a mouth full of robin’s eggs.

ThredUP and Stitch Fix. After a fruitless and exhausting shopping trip yesterday, I’m reminded once again why I love using these services. (If you’re curious about them, I’ve written about Thred UP here and Stitch Fix here.)


We’re on a bit of a espionage kick over here. We don’t have cable, but I got Homeland from the library. We watched the first season about 6 months ago, and then I was #237 on th waitlist for season 2. I finally got to the top of the list so we were able to watch the first half of season 2.

The Americans is a period show about Russian spies in the U.S. during Reagan’s presidency. It stars Felicity (Keri Russell) and is pretty good so far! We have watched a few episodes of season 1. If you have Amazon Prime, it’s free to stream.


Short Stories by Ernest Hemingway: I’m trying to (very casually) study writers who communicate much with few words, and I remember Hemingway as such a writer from my illustrious career as an English major.

The Ten, Make That Nine, Habits of Very Organized People. Make That Ten.: The Tweets of Steve Martin: I read through some of these while browsing in a bookstore, and it was delightful. At the least, follow him on Twitter.


Jon Acuff has written some gems lately: Sometimes there is harm in asking and Please stop doing this on Twitter

Loved this honest post by Rachael Kincaid

  1. Oooh! I really want to read the book of Steve Martin’s tweets! Thank you for the recommendation! We’re big Homeland fans here, and I’ve been wanting to watch The Americans. Glad to know that you like it! Jon Acuff really hit the nail on the head with that post – I had never thought of it that way.

    Hoping that you have a wonderful April!

  2. I haven’t really watched late night tv in years, but Jimmy Fallon has me hooked. My bedtime gets later and later because I laugh so hard and all my endorphins are firing. I have to wind down before going to sleep.

  3. Oh, I’m so excited you liked to eating_whole. I realized that is Lauren, who I used to follow years ago and then I thought she quit blogging. She’s had a baby since then and it looks like she’s blogging about food now. So, thanks for the reunion :)

    1. Thred Up is an online consignment store. I’ve found some really inexpensive but great things there, and they take returns if you don’t like something. I’ve also found it the most convenient way to clean out my closet!
