Currently Bookmarked - 3/8

1. March 8th is International Women's Day!

March 8th is designated as a day to celebrate the global achievements of women! We have several women that we admire who are included in this post!

Love this super cool greeting card we found at Trader Joe's!

2. Louisa May Alcott was not only a writer, but an advocate for women's rights as well.

She was also one of the founders of the Women's Educational and Industrial Union in Boston (1877).

If you didn't get a chance to check out our post on Louisa May Alcott, we'd love for you to take a peek! Featuring all things inspired by this fabulous book and amazing author, we've included books, trips and more!

*The above amazing illustration of Little Women was created by another influential woman, artist Maira Kalman- her art is gorgeous!

3. Our twist on Louisa May Alcott's recipe for Apple Slump is a delicious way to take a step back in time and celebrate the author!

4. Well, the clocks are set forward an hour again for the Spring Ahead time change in hopes of it staying lighter longer- do you like it?

Which side of the coin are you for? Would love to know in the comments below!

5. Know someone who needs a little sparkle? Are you in the midst of preparing for a fancy situation?

6. Whether it's a dance costume or prom dress or even a hair accessory, rhinestones are a quick way to dress it up!

Just pick your color and size and glue these little sparkly rhinestones wherever you need to really add some 'Wow' factor!

This glue works very well and doesn't have any odor, is easy to apply and holds well!

7. Last week was Dr. Seuss's birthday and we'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge the creativity of this former advertising illustrator that contributed so much to children's literature!

Below are a couple of pics from when we visited the The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield, Massachusetts a while back.

The museum is so much fun for kids and adults alike! Super cool rooms that make you feel like you're in a Dr. Seuss book!

Not just for kids, the upstairs caters more to the slightly older set and is a fascinating look into the life of Theodore Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss!

There's also an incredible sculpture park in the courtyard with huge sculptures of characters and scenes! The best photo ops ever! (see above)

8. JoAnn's ReUsable Shopping Bags-- We always try to use reusable bags and these bags at Joann's really caught our eye!

Colorful and fun, we are using the larger one for when we purchase scrapbooking paper, and the smaller one for anything that will fit! Perfect!

9. The Great Spring Shed!! - Our corgi-mix, Abby, is just the most fun any dog could be! She LOVES being outside in the nice weather! As the weather has been becoming warmer, she has begun, what we fondly refer to as: the 'Big Shed!'

For a small dog, she can really shed! Enough fur for another dog comes off this 13 pound fur baby when we brush her!

We have tried many tools and find the FURminator to be very, VERY effective! Abby likes it, and we like controlling the shedding!

We take her outside and brush her as she enjoys the sunshine on her fur!

10. Just finished reading Stranger With My Face and we both agree this is one of our favorites! Lois Duncan is the original queen of YA thrillers!

Book cover for Stranger With My Face by Lois Duncan has a silhouette of girl with long hair

Stranger With My Face is one of our favorites! I liked it as much as my daughter (and I was reading it for the second time!).

Stranger With My Face combines suspense, great storytelling and the paranormal for a super-compelling read!

11. I (Cenz) had so much fun coming up with this mini DIY Dollhouse Dresser and gave it to this adorable Calico Critter--most fun photo shoot ever!

It was made with matchboxes and a few other simple supplies and is the sweetest thing ever!

Find this full, fun and fast DIY tutorial here! Do you like miniatures? Let me know in the comments below!

12. Finished reading this contemporary rom-com and loved it!

If I'm Being Honest is the perfect, lighthearted, yet heartfelt title to enjoy, and will transport you to sunny L. A. in this tale inspired by a Shakespearean classic!

if you want something less suspenseful after finishing the book my mom read from above, If I'm Being Honest is the perfect choice that keeps you turning those pages!

13. To get some exercise after eating the tasty recipe featured in our Louisa May Alcott post, from above, we went on a walk to a nearby park, where we enjoyed seeing some signs of early spring!

So cute to see all the ducks and geese waddling around-can't wait to go back and see the baby birds after they hatch!


Happy International Women's Day and Have a Great Week!!

Cenzia & April

I'm taking a vote against changing the clocks. Pick one time and leave it be----is my philosophy! One year, due to a lack of communication between my son and myself, we both changed the clocks. We found our time to be 2 hours off. We did have a good laugh, but the craziness went into round three for the time change-----a lot of climbing, bending, turning & twisting---not your best senior moments.
