Hey March, you were pretty cool!

Okay, so its early April and I never did my grateful blog for March, and it’s not because I don’t have tons of things that were awesome that month, its more because I’ve been in a slump and haven’t felt like writing… I have felt like sleeping, a lot. So it’s a little late, but this is for March.

·         My job:

o   I got a raise and my boss started a quarterly incentive program, so assuming I meet all the demands of each quarter, I’ll get a bonus. So yay me!

o   Also because of work contacts I’ve made I was given two free tickets to PCPA’s musical “Little Women” it was so beautifully done, I cried throughout the whole performance.  I really am lucky to live in a place where we have some really amazing shows.  I can’t wait to see Legally Blonde this summer.

·         Birthday parties:

o   My awesome friend Karla had a kick ass 80s themed party and I danced my face off for at least 4 hours straight, I was sore for a couple of days, but it was totally worth it. I swear dancing is the most fun cardio ever…. Way more fun than Spin Class (which is super fun when you make it Karaoke Spin).

o   My baby sister turned 20 at the end of the month and we took a Sister Shopping Trip in Santa Barbara.  It was an amazing day (even though we had to weather a storm), lots of window shopping, some actual shopping, a visit to Tiffany, so many laughs and just a couple sentimental tears.

·         Star Gazing in the hot tub with Tess and a bottle of wine (and tormenting my brother) was all part of an amazing Girls’ Weekend. It also included manis/pedis, shopping in SLO, Thai food and ice cream, Sunday Brunch...did I leave anything out? Grown up slumber parties are the best way to spend a weekend.

·         Best Friends (and their mommies) coming to my rescue when I had a near panic attack because I didn’t know how I was going to frost 120 cupcakes and a mini birthday cake by myself… Meg and Terry I love you guys!

So this is a short/sweet post, but I do want to say thank you for everyone who has made my life as great as it is. I know that I complain and vent a lot, but seriously? Things could be so much worse, and even my BIG problems will seem small when I look back at this.  I'd rather look back on happy memories with great friends and family than dwell on the things that have upset me.
