My Photo Diary: March



March Photo Diary  --- Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

So how was your March?

Mine was kind of "dullsville," honestly, and I'm looking forward to April.

I hope wherever you are, winter grays are starting to be replaced with spring greenery. We've had boat-loads of rain the past few days, and even some "wintry mix," so I am in need of some blue skies and warmer temperatures.

I've been brushing up on my photo-a-day skills, so that I'll be ready for "Show Us Your April," the project that my friend Claire, from a little CLAIREification and I are collaborating on. Are you ready to join us?


The gist of it is that you take a photo every day for the month of April...create a post about it, and then link up with us between May 1 and 7. Check here for more info. 

Or, better yet, let me show you my March, and you'll get the idea!

Bought a new bird feeder today. It didn't take long for word to spread that there was a new "all you can eat" place in town.

What's this??? Daffodils! The very first sign of Spring that I've seen! #feelingencouraged

Mr. Goo Shoes found money tucked into an old photo album in the basement today. The story is worthy of its own post.

Spring...on a New York City street corner (Lexington and 78th Street), passed on my way to a doctor appointment.

Dear Deer, I always get excited to see you when you come to visit our backyard, but can you please not make a smorgasboard of our bushes?

Haven't been to Harvest on Hudson, one of our favorite restaurants, since we held Junior Goo Shoes' Bar Mitzvah party there in October 2012. Happy to be back for dinner with our good friends (the ones with the beautiful garden). What could be better? Desserts all around!

What's wrong with this picture? Shopping at Lord & Taylor's on 5th Ave. in New York City, and leaving without a single purchase! That's what's wrong!

Now that the lake at the park is mostly unfrozen, the geese have returned for a little "r and r."

Mr. Goo Shoes and I took our first-ever Yoga class. It kind of ruins the mood to take a picture of yourself during class, so this will have to do. Namaste.

Winter's swan song -- and the first day spring -- is a good day for a walk in the park.

If you want to torture me, put a bowl of mac and cheese in front of me, and remind me of my cholesterol numbers. This was Junior Goo Shoe's dinner; sadly, not mine.

Mr. Goo Shoes has been hanging out upside down in the basement on his new inversion table. It's really helping his back! Sadie likes to keep him company.

I made my own pizza from scratch today... well, almost. OK, the crust was frozen, but I did the rest. That counts.

Dinner in NYC tonight with girlfriends is the perfect way to end the month! Not the best photo, but it does convey the spirit of the evening. Cheers! (PS - I am the hand on the far left).

Love the sun streaming into your pretty bathroom, where you must be smiling at the reflection of that gorgeous hair, getting ready for the perfect BFF foodie night! Looks like you had a fun month, to me!
