March On & Off Instagram

I was tempted to skip March in my monthly recap but though I’m way tardy on this recap, it felt more wrong to skip! I find a lot of joy in tracing over happy memories. The act of writing these monthly recaps makes me happy.

March in Austin means much of the city is under siege for two weeks by SXSW. It means overwhelming crowds, functions, parties, dinners, and traffic. I usually do a few food related events and my friend Patrick Pho, one of the handful of friends I’ve met through Youtube comes very year. We had our yearly reunion with Ashley.

I adapted a recipe for pork and bok choy noodle soup and I can’t wait to make it again when the weather is cool. You can see the pin of the original recipe and my notes of my adaption here. We ate it three days in a week and I didn’t tire of it. Also pictured on instagram, was one of my dogs dressed for St. Patrick’s Day, a homemade meal of Vietnamese crepes that my mom made me during a weekend trip, and doing some filming with Youtube star Furious Pete.

Sugarface and I attended our third wedding of the year. This one was our first Indian wedding and we felt so honored to be part of our friend’s day. The groom used to be one of my coworkers at the job from which we were both laid off. More specifically, he sat one desk over. Through our years at our former job, he has felt like a younger brother to me. I’m happy that despite us no longer seeing each other regularly, we still remain close and close to our mutual professional mentor who was also in attendance. It was a heart-warming celebration to end the month of March.

Not depicted on Instagram, I got ordained as a minister. I even paid extra for the paper certificate which came with a parking pass that makes me giggle. I told Sugarface I’ll frame it next to his PhD! You can call me Reverend Linda now.

    Reverend Linda, it looks like March was an awesome month for you. I love that you paid a bit extra for a paper certificate and that it came with a parking pass! Too funny! You should totes frame that next to Sugarface’s PhD. :)

    March was a total blur for me as it was a really busy month but the highlight was hosting my friend Nora for a long weekend. It ended up being an unseasonably beautiful weekend in MN so we spent so much time outside and had the best time catching up!

    • There’s also a bummer sticker, Lisa! Hahah.

      I loved reading about your weekend with Nora.

  • San

    Glad you decided to do the monthly recap. It’s so nice to look back on :)

  • You got ordained as a minister?!

    I really want to go to an Indian wedding :)

    • Yes! Haha, i”m going to add it to my resume. #hireme.

  • I can’t wait for you to officiate my wedding, after all the conversations we’ve had about dating! ;-)

  • Love, food, books, and travel. You’re a romantic.
