12 Months of Happiness: March 2018

March 30, 2018


Happy Friday and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series! This month I decided to switch up the format a little bit. If you’ve been following along with this series, you know that I usually upload a three photo collage of each “thing” that made me happy that month. But this time I’ve decided to just upload one vertical photo to represent each “happy thing.”

I’ve really been working on my Pinterest game lately (hence the new vertical images format) and I’ve definitely seen great results so far. My blog traffic has almost doubled in past three months. In fact, my latest Be Our Guest post and my Disney Cruise Line posts did amazing on Pinterest (and they’ve brought crazy traffic to the blog!). I guess I’m not the only person obsessed with Disney hehehe!

Here are some of the things that made March an amazing month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your March went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy):

St. Patricks Day Chicago River Dye

St. Patricks Day’s…Made Me HAPPY. Although I’m not Irish, I love going downtown each St. Patrick’s Day to watch the parade and see the annual Chicago River dying. (Don’t worry, the green dye isn’t harmful!). It’s such a fun Chicago tradition.

Walt Disney World Rose Gold Cupcake

Disney World…Made Me HAPPY.  I just got back from a mini trip to Disney World with my best friends family and, like with any Disney trip, I had a blast! I finally got to try the new rose gold cupcake (the one pictured is from Epcot) and it was actually pretty tasty. (Although it definitely looked better than it tasted lol).

Broadway in Chicago On Your Feet

Broadway…Made Me HAPPY. As you all know, I’m a HUGE Broadway lover. In fact, I try to see at least one new Broadway show every other month (depending on how many shows are playing here in Chicago at any given time). Last month I was lucky enough to see two amazing shows, Potted Potter and Hamilton (for a fourth time!). And this month was no different.

Yesterday I was able to score 4th row rush tickets to On Your Feet, which is based of the lives and music of Gloria and Emilio Estefa. And tonight I’m seeing the pre-Broadway premiere of Pretty Woman. I’m so excited. Hooray for Broadway!

Here’s a few other things that made me happy in March:

  • RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10.
  • I bought tickets to see The Sound of Music on Broadway (for next month!).
  • I got my C2E2 press badge in the mail (C2E2 is next week btw!).
  • I’ve received a lot of amazing blogging opportunities and partnerships this month.

I can’t believe it’s almost April?! What made you happy in March?
