February is to cheetah, as March is to turtle: The Best of March

I have a feeling you’re tired of hearing it, but man was March long. Whereas February was a breeze, I felt like March was three months long before the first week was over. Whereas. Does that remind anyone else of the analogy  questions we used to have on tests in school?

Pop quiz!

  1. Apple is to fruit, whereas carrot is to ___.
  2. Coffee is to cup, whereas soup is to ___.
  3. Stinky is to Beaker the dog, whereas adorable is to ___.

Answers: vegetable, bowl, and Little K.

It only happens once a month or every other month, so we like to remind one another that we’ll see them again soon. Well I think we left off in February saying “see you in a few weeks for Easter!” A few weeks was two months. But, finally, Easter came and went, and with it March. So, without further ado.

Yep, February was the first full month of this blog, and so I want to start a monthly tradition of doing the “best of.” Maybe I’m getting too into the spirit of award season, but I want to recap some of the great (and not so great) projects, recipes, or happenings of the last month.

Best place to people watch: A thrift shop, especially when you have Thrift Shop by Macklemore running through your head.

We found a shopper "draped in mink."
