Month In a Minute

Okay, so I know I let a week slip by once and summed it up in a single blog. Well, the month of March was NO exception! It was fast and furious, and boy, how I have missed writing! So, the best thing to do is to sum up my month in what I would like to call, a "month in a minute". So here we go!

Last I wrote I was about to leave for a vacation in Savannah, Ga to visit one of my best friends and her family! We worked together at the same school my first year as an aide, and we love to tell the story of how I just hated her! I thought she swooped in and stole my other friends job. Then the unthinkable happened... I got to know her and I LOVED her! Now, 5 years later, one big move (her), the loss of two parents (me), and 2 kids later (her), we talk almost every day! And my trip to visit her did not disappoint!! Here are just a few of the things we did...
Jenni is always so super crafty and had this awaiting me when I arrived! Gotta love her!

We visited Tybee Island where the movie "The Last Song" was filmed. We took her BE-YOND adorable son Grayson with us and this kid is the biggest FLIRT! I am in love! And seriously, the kid could be my son, right??
Apparently, St. Patricks Day in Savannah is the second biggest celebration in the country next to Chicago. So we HAD to go and visit the famous green fountain in Forsyth Park! I thought this was pretty awesome until I saw that EVERY fountain in Savannah is dyed green for celebration! crazy!!
This was one of the coolest things we did! We rented the movie, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" which is based on a murder in Savannah. It was a great movie and if you have not seen it yet, I highly recommend it! It was really good! We went and visited the famous cemetery in the movie. And while at first I was a little leery of going to a graveyard for fun, it turned out to be pretty awesome! And there was a ton of tourists there. This place was pretty historic.
And no trip would be complete without Jenni taking me across the bridge to South Carolina so I could say that I visited 2 states in one day. The very first thing I saw when we crossed the state line was this...
Couldn't help it! I had to take a picture! I thought this was pretty hilarious!

Oh and I can not forget, anyone who knows me, knows my love for everything baseball! Well, little did I know Savannah is home to this...
William Grayson Stadium, home of the Savannah Sandgnats! This is the oldest minor league ballpark in the country! It is an affiliate of the Mets. When I told the girl who let me in to buy souvenirs that we now have the Minor League team too, the Skeeters, she immediately loved the name as we were both apparently annoying insects! hahaha!!

It was a great GREAT trip! I cant wait to go back and I am already planning my trip back this summer!

So onto more somber and sad news a couple of days after I got back for Georgia we lost one of our babies...
Our sweet, gentle giant, Dutchie, passed away on St. Patricks Day. It was extremely fast and extremely sudden. The only comfort I can take away is that she passed at home, in her favorite spot, with her favorite blanket with us all around... It happened almost 3 weeks ago, and I miss her as much as if it were yesterday.

Okay, I HAVE to change the subject... making me sad. Onto happy... To round out the month, one of my best friends in the world came down to visit! And the mini Girls Weekend did NOT disappoint! You know that saving, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Well same goes for Girls Weekend. so the only picture I will post is this...

I know, poor Christins eyes are closed because she was in the middle of talking and laughing, but that really does sum up that weekend! Hilarious, and wonderful! Love that all my besties get along so well! Love them all!!

Well, we are now in April, and though I have not trained as much as I would have liked due to severe foot pain (in both feet), I still have a half marathon coming up in about 2 weeks! I am excited! Well, more on that later! I gotta go, it is starting to storm here and one of our puppies has major anxiety when she hears thunder (we call it her "dog-ler" radar, get it like "dopler" radar!??! haha!!) oh well. It feels great to be back and I will write much, much more this month! Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
