Where Was I.....

Since we last spoke, I have survived a big work deadline and spring break.  Here's a phone picture dump of what all has been happening:

I'm trying to move into Spring clothing.  I've put the boots away and pulling in fun colors.  I'm also toying with this whole mixing prints thing.  Black gingham and leopard steps.

I went with the former roommate family to Tuscaloosa to a UA gymnastics meet.  Though we didn't see a ton of gymnastics, we had lots of fun.  And, Alabama beat the #1 team!  Roll Tide!  Here's me and Ella. 

The boyfriend and I celebrated St. Patrick's Day with some of his friends.  Obviously you can't tell from the picture, but I had a cold and had almost completely lost my voice that day.  I'm still not over that nasty cold. 

The Harlem Globetrotters came to town.  I gave my nephew tickets for his birthday.  It was such a great show game.  Definitely entertaining for kids of all ages and I recommend it if you've never seen them. 

After a busy weekend of the aforementioned gymnastics meet, St. Patty's Day, and Globetrotters, I boarded a plane for a work conference.  Is it just me or are planes getting smaller? 

Don't feel too sorry for me, though, because I was headed to Palm Springs, CA.  I spent a day and a half lounging at the pool. 

I stayed at the La Quinta Resort & Club.  Very nice and so beautiful. 

Packing for the trip was slightly challenging.  I was packing for days, work conference, pool, and evening dinners/outings.  Think I brought enough jewelry?  In all seriousness, I wouldn't have packed that much, but my friend who also went asked that I "bring options."  I had enough for the two of us and then some!  Please note that I did not take a picture of the shoes (couldn't fit them all in - just kidding, or am I?). 

Then, back to reality and back to the gym.

I'm looking forward to a full Easter weekend.  Church services tonight, tomorrow night, and Sunday morning, a baby shower for Leanne on Saturday night, and Easter lunch with the boyfriend's family.  I love Easter weekend and these are some of my most favorite church services.  I go to Trinity United Methodist in Homewood.  Check out the schedule of services if you are looking for somewhere to go.  I hope the weather holds out for the outdoor sunrise service!  Maybe I'll post some pics of my Easter dress (yes, it's the same one as last year, but I was in Lineville for Easter last year). 

Have a very blessed Easter weekend!

Friday's Five Faves

I am so glad it's Friday!  I've needed every day at work this week and always feel bad wishing away my days, but I've been living for weekends lately.  Here's a few things that are putting a smile on my face today:

1.  Feeling better - this time last week, a nasty stomach bug had invaded my body.  Two days of sickness and nausea.  Props to the boyfriend for being a great nurse (and somehow not getting sick himself).  It pretty much looked like this:

2.  Good sports - some coworkers got together last night.  One guy is infamous for his jello shots.  I got (pregnant) Leanne to pose pretending to drink some so that I could text the picture to her husband.

3.  Juice - I'm juicing again!!  I got an Omega juicer and have been juicin' it up!

4.  Fun outfits - I'm so ready for spring and lighter/brighter clothes.  Here's what promises to be a staple Saturday errand outfit:

5.  Speaking of spring - the weather is going to be fabulous this weekend!  Sunny and possibly 70 degrees.....if only we weren't going to lose an hour....

Have an awesome weekend!
