March is basically over – already! To be honest, I usually hate the month of March. Especially now that I no longer have spring break vacations to look forward to. However, this year March was utterly fantastic! From my calendar that’ s full of bright scratch-and-sniff stickers, to my third degree sunburns, and to an 8 hour road trip. All I can say is this year just keeps getting better and better
Let’s start with my vivid (and blurry) calendar…
X marks my rest days. Yes, those are strawberry and lollipop scratch-and-sniff stickers! In hindsight, not such a good idea for controlling a massive and uncontrollable sweet tooth, but cute nonetheless My workouts became far less intense toward the end of the month. In fact, this week I decided to take a ‘workout hiatus’ and stuck to basic walking and impeccable eating.
Fortunately, for us Chicagoans, this month’s spectacular weather (I’m talking 80′s and Sunny) allowed for outdoor exercising! My outdoor running sessions were also providing me with free tanning sessions. God, I love efficiency! Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures to show you my battle wounds and you probably won’t believe me with the pictures I will soon post – I still look like Casper the friendly ghost. Okay, honestly what is it with my unintentional rhyming?! Whatever, I like it.
Road Trip 2012. Effie and Danny’s Bridal Shower. Destination: Toronto, Canada.
Total miles: 1042 (round trip)
Total hours: 16 (round trip)
Total number of pit stops: 3 ( 2 going and 1 coming. It’s unfortunate that exercise has no effect on bladder control. The captain of my ship had me on a tight leash. Death sentence).
We left right around 4 pm and got there around 1 am on Saturday. My first stop was obviously for coffee at none other than the infamous Tim Hortons!
I got a regular cup of Joe with cream and it was divine! So divine, that on the way back to Chicago I stopped and got a big tin of it and am now thoroughly enjoying a cup of Canada every morning My boyfriend and I did a car tour through the city because the weather was just not permitting anything else. Later that night we enjoyed a ‘big fat Greek wedding’ style dinner at a local Greek restaurant. I had fish and greens with lemon – delicious! We then ventured off into a fun little lounge where we rocked out to jams from 1990-2002. Rocked-my-world!
Now, onto the main event. Bridal Shower Part 1:
The beautiful couple of the hour…
Followed by the beautiful bridal party/family…
And last, but not least, the very beautiful best friends… for life.
I’m sure you’re sick of hearing the word beautiful, unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do about that.
And of course the… beautiful… and delectable cake and cake pops..
This pretty much sums up their relationship, in case you were wondering..
All-in-all, March began and ended… beautifully
