March Recap + April TBR

Here's our monthly recap! 
We decided to start doing a monthly recap. Since we post and read a ton we will highlight what our favorite things were and what we hope to read the upcoming month. 

If you would like to see all our posts, here are our weekly wrap-ups:

Ash's Month!

 I read 18 books in March (Including Finn's school books) 
 We saw Onward and Spies in Disguise in theaters
 It was my birthday month 
 Quarantine started right after my birthday 
★ We visited my grandparents again  
 I dyed my hair a light brown/blonde color
 I sprained my ankle really bad 
★ Finn lost another tooth! 
★ I got Shudder again and have been watching a lot of great movies 
★ We planted a tangerine tree, and started the memorial trees for the boys 

Wow you guys. It's been a minute since we posted. Life is insane right now, and you would assume that being in quarantine means we have more time to blog. That assumption is wrong. Very very wrong. 

Jenn and my dad are working at home. I'm homeschooling Finn, doing extra stuff with him, making things, crafting, watching movies, gardening. 

Finn had to be tested for Corona, John had to be tested for Corona. Neither of them have it. 

We were supposed to go camping, but it got rained out. So we were going to go to the Bob Bullock museum, Rodeo, and the movies. Well the Rodeo was canceled, we decided not to go to the Bob Bullock, but we did go see Onward and Spies in Disguise and loved both of them.

My craft show got canceled, which sucks.

Honestly Corona sucks. 

John is considered essential, so he's still working luckily. The 25th was our 3 year wedding anniversary and we watched Zombieland Doubletap and had tacos of course. We also took bluebonnet pictures before all this started. 

I just want to say that March was a disappointing and kind of terrible month. I hurt myself, our camping trip got canceled, the VFW cook out I was going to be a vendor at got canceled, the rodeo got canceled.
Jenn and my dad are working from home, Finn is home all day and we're homeschooling so besides his school books I haven't been able to read much. I'm hoping I can double time it in April to get caught up. But so far it's not looking good considering school is out until May 4th.

Here's a few great photos from March:
