Spring Break

Today marks the beginning of Spring Break at school. The only thing that it really means for me is that I don't have class on Tuesday and that the whole week will be really quiet in the office. For Monday and Tuesday that will be great, the rest of the week will be long.
The weather has continued to be amazing allowing for walks and windows open; two of my favorite things.
Today is my sister's 18th wedding anniversary. I just got off the phone with my youngest nephew (6) who asked, "Did you know that it's mommy and daddy's anniversary?" And I answered, "Yes, I was at their wedding!" ... quiet, then "Oh." haha. He is a funny kid.
I wish them all the best and often wonder how they both work crazy hours at their jobs and still have such great kids. Sometimes I'm not even sure they know how they do it!
I've spent the weekend spring cleaning a bit. We have some relatives coming to visit later this week and there is no other time to prepare. They might be staying here for awhile. They were here last winter, the worst on the books so I hope this trip redeems for them.
Last night I had a sweet tooth and made some yummy dark chocolate brownies. They were delicious and exactly what my sweet tooth wanted. Now the problem is that there are 22 more where that 1st one came from. I think I'm gonna freeze some so that they are not just taunting me all week.

That's all for now,


Spring Ahead

It's here. It's a direction. A proclamation.
Yay. Spring is here turn your clocks ahead and enjoy.

Whoop whoop.

The next few days are supposed to be beyootiful and I intend to enjoy them as much as possible.

What are you Spring Ahead plans?

Just a note... blogger isn't with the whole daylight savings thing... it's really 9am.


March Already

And barely a post from me.
I don't have much to say because it has been so beautiful out and I've been out there enjoying it.

So of course as always a list..
  • I really should be doing homework right now.
  • I am constantly reminded of the amazing friends that I have. Love you gals.
  • March roared right in. It better prove to be a good one. I could use a good one!
  • I have become addicted to Pinterest. If you don't know what this is click on the link right now and let me know so I can send you an invite.
  • I've been striking out in the book department. Not really loving anything right now. I've stopped reading 3 out of 4 of the last books I've read. I can't keep with it. 
  • So, I stopped at the library on my way home and picked up some smutty light reading. That should cure it.
  • I got an iphone for my big 35 and am loving it. What did I do before Angry Birds, Cut the rope, instagram and the other million apps.
  • I think I might be on the verge of getting sick. Hate it. Either I want to be so sick that I get to stay in bed and watch junk TV ALL day or be better. This in between is making me... sick.
  • The countdown is on.... 6 days til daylight savings begins. 
  • I really want to say that it is over but it is really only the beginning of saving time but the end of the short days. WAHOO!
  • I had a super tasty grilled pineapple margarita this weekend. Not sure what else was in it besides some pineapple, but it was delish!
  • k, really need to get to the homework.
  • Flipping through magazines might have to be one of my favoritist pastimes ever! Especially when your bestie is sitting right beside you flipping through one too.
  • Cheap too cuz we never end up buying the zine.
  • Lots of family illnesses lately. Super depressing. Hate it.
  • Sometimes when I am online and I see that I have an email, I click on that tab and see if it is important, then when it isn't I will flip back to what I was doing in the first place. Almost every time I see that there is an email again I will check it like I don't know what it is. Even though I just checked it like a minute ago. Dang... short term memory fail!
  • Okay, now I'm going to do my homework.
