mini memos: welcome march

I spoke too soon when I said it felt like spring the other day. I knew I'd jinx it, but I couldn't help it. It was downright beautiful while it lasted! Today, however, it's snowing again. Ryan's happy about it. He says it'll be nice to have one last snowfall before we PCS. I know better. It'll snow on Mother's Day again, so I'm not holding my breath! 

We're 10 days from my surgery now, and I'm starting to get nervous. At the same time, I'm getting excited to get the ball rolling. My knee has been hurting overnight again lately, and it's frustrating. I know I'll be in some serious pain post-surgery, but I'll finally be able to start rehabbing it and focusing on recovery. That's a plus, right? I digress. It's time for another edition of mini memos, and I'm linking up today with Momfessional for Friday Favorites and Smidge of This for Five on Friday.

Dear South Carolina...I'm so glad we're visiting you again soon! We're headed to Litchfield Beach the last week of April, and I can't wait to soak up some sun, sand, and sea. Sadly, Ryan will be at training, but it'll be nice to have a little break before the PCS crazy begins.

Dear Porter...Little man, I love you to death. You have such an impish, naughty temper, and it drives me absolutely bonkers. I have to remind myself sometimes that you're almost two, and it's a phase. But then you smile at me like this
and melt my heart. Silly boy!

Dear moving...I'm so excited for a fresh start, but I'm dreading the start of packing. Since we decided to do a DITY (more on that later), I'm a little overwhelmed. Here's hoping we can get our proverbial ish together in time to get things moving.

Dear snow...I love you, but it's time for you to go. It's no secret that I have a love of snowy mornings, but there's something about the first vestiges of spring. I'm craving more sun, more warmth, and plenty of outdoor days with my boys.

Dear Riverdale...Why are you so addicting? I watched the first episode when we were on our flight back from South Africa, and I was hooked. I finally got started watching it again, and now I'm full-on bingeing it at night. Team #bughead. Anybody else watching this gem?! I'm probably too old for this...

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I hope you have a great weekend ahead.


  1. Riverdale....if you’re too old, I’m waaay over the hill, lol, my goodness I love this show! We have 4 season 2 episodes left and I’ll be jonsing for season 3! Yep, bye snow and your move will be such a sweet new start!

  2. I'm slightly ashamed to admit that I watched the entire first season of Riverdale in one day ..

  3. We are ready for the spring, too! We had several days if nice weather now it's cool (not cold, but definitely not warm) and rainy this week. Happy happy Friday!! Hope your surgery goes well!

  4. Happy March!! Hmm... I might have to Try Riverdale, too!

  5. Happy March Mama! I am going to have to check out Riverdale too! Moving is so stressfull. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for that and surgery. We are so excited for spring too! Happy weekend!

  6. Oh no! Hopefully it starts warming up soon! Sending prayers and love for your surgery. Big hugs to you!
