March 2015 Highlights & Personal Updates

March 2015 was definitely a fun month around here, especially since we celebrated the DIY Playbook’s 2nd birthday! 2nd-Birthday-CandleWe changed things up during our birthday week with a few fun & not-so-DIY posts:

But that was just the first week of the month. If you missed some of the projects & posts here’s a little recap for ya…

And probably our favorite project of the month…

More From March 2015

C’s Updates: At the beginning of the month, I was fortunate to spend a long weekend in sunny Arizona! My grandma (Meme) lives there, and every year we try to make a trip out west to see her and soak in the sun. My mom, sister, and sister-in-law all headed to Phoenix…so it was a very fun girls’ trip! We’re always pretty lame when we go out there (wake up early, go on a long walk, lay by the pool, make dinner, and go to bed by 9pm!)…but it’s our kinda vacation. No busy schedules & long to-do lists for these gals. I was able to read The Girl on the Train while laying out by the pool and I definitely recommend it. I was cringing during some parts, but overall a great book if you’re looking for something new to read! The warm temps, sun-filled days, and relaxed schedule definitely got me excited for our honeymoon in Mexico next month…

Green RiverB’s updates: This month was luckily a tad less busy for me. While Casey was in AZ, I took the weekend off to unplug too, which was a nice little break. I took that weekend off to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day, with lots of family tradition. Matt and I headed down to see Chicago’s river get dyed green while also attending quite a few family parties (our big Irish families love March 17th)! With the help of my dad, I also was able to complete another weekend warrior project that I plan on chatting about Friday and revealing next week (hint: board & batten itch strikes again). I’m looking forward to enjoying the warmer weather, Spring Break travels, and getting started on my little sister’s new place. Of course, I’ll share all of the scoop along the way, but make sure you are tuning in to our Instagram or Facebook account for some pictures. Overall, March was a fun, festive, and productive month!
