Becky at Choose Happy has been running a fun link up party called Currently. I join Becky for her Currently link up series once a month. I thought it would be a fun way to update y'all on my life in a light way through photos and blurbs of text.
I hate to say this... but, Instagram used to be my favorite social media platform. However, after all of the talk about them changing how we view things- which, WHEN is that happening? Hmm. I decided to check out SnapChat, because all of the cool kids have been talking about it. It is just SO much fun! I think my favorite person to follow on there right now is @cblied (Carrie Bradshaw Lied). Seriously, check her out. She's a riot. If you're on SnapChat, look me up- I am on there as @curlycraftymom.
I had my ninth half marathon last Sunday and I plan to do a recap post on the race. I am going to take this week off from running, which is a little reward I give myself for all of the hard work. I usually try to get in 2 Jillian '30 Day Shred' workouts every week, but it just hasn't happened in the last month... I got one workout in last week, but before that I had gone 4 weeks without doing the '30 Day Shred'. I did do EVERY single training run, though... and the training takes SO much time, I knew I had to drop the Jillian workouts to compensate somehow. This photo is of my last training run, which was an easy 2 mile run. The view was nice, so I snapped some photos along the way. :)
Curly Crafty Mom News
In April I finally did it! I started my first blog newsletter. I currently have 61 subscribers, which may seem small to some... but, I am thrilled that so many people are interested in receiving it each month.
I was also excited to receive several emails from people that had received it with compliments. This is why I love the blogging community, y'all are so supportive. In each newsletter I feature a blogger of the month, if you are interested please let me know.
If you haven't subscribed to my newsletter yet, I'd love to have you;

Free Samples with PINCHme!
I received my fourth PINCHme box last week and it was seriously my most favorite box yet! This box included Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner in Honey Treasures and it smells SO good. I will be reviewing more of the Garnier Whole Blends products early next week! There was also a face mask from SheaMoisture and I can't wait to try it on my next in-home spa day! I am really addicted to face masks lately and I've been trying a lot of different ones. The SkinnyPop Dusted Dark Chocolate Popcorn was REALLY good and almost like a dessert. I gave the FULL size sample of Brylcreem to my husband and he's been using it in his hair and likes the clean scent. There were a lot of other products in my box, too!
And, you can receive a PINCHme box, too for FREE! Click HERE to fill out a questionnaire that will find the best samples for you. On sample Tuesday (one Tuesday a month) you can select which samples you’d like to receive. Sample Tuesday is April 12! No credit card is needed, it is FREE… all they ask is for your opinions and thoughts on the samples they send you.
I am planning to share a post next month that will share my first two months with Invisalign. I had wanted to get the post out this month, but I just have too many other posts scheduled that need to go out in April (such is life). I'm getting quite used to these plastic trays and it isn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.
Well, last month I finished 2 books and this month I didn't finish ANY!
But, if you're wondering what I'm currently reading it is The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. It is a light and fluffy book, which is nice after reading Night Film last month. This is the second book I've read by Moriarty, I've also read Big Little Lies. I'll give you a review next month after I finish it. Life has been so busy lately, I haven't had as much time to read. :( After The Husband's Secret, I plan to read The Rosie Project.
Well, that is all I have today. Be sure to join Becky in this link up series sometime, it is a lot of fun!
