Sorry I missed Wednesday, it was a crazy day of wedding dress alterations and ordering bridesmaid dresses for my friend, Katelin’s, wedding. By the time I got home, I needed a nice long nap.
But I’m back! And so ready for the weekend. I don’t know about y’all, but this has felt like one of the longest weeks ever.
It’s a new month, and I’m so excited about it. Why, you may be asking? Well…
March Madness. Whether you follow basketball religiously or pick a team based on it’s mascot, March Madness appeals to almost everyone I know. I love filling out a bracket and keeping up with my wins and losses. I’ll be in a few bracket pools and will be happy to share them with you guys.
The Time Change. The days have been getting longer ever so slowly, and the 7 p.m. sunsets are almost here. I love when the sun stays out so long. Even if you don’t spend the whole time outside, just being able to see the sun is pleasant.
Warmer Weather. This weekend is supposed to bring 70 degree temps back to Tuscaloosa. It’s going to be warm and sunny and I plan on taking advantage of it.
Spring Break. Later in the month, the university and public schools will be enjoying a week off. While there are no big plans made currently, just knowing everyone has time to relax and enjoy the week is exciting.
Press Boxes. I get to head back into the press box for the Alabama-Tennessee series. I’ll be covering it for the Maryville, Tenn. paper, The Daily Times. It’s been far too long and I can’t wait to get back in it.
Easter. While I used to love getting an Easter dress every year, it doesn’t happen anymore. Easter isn’t as big a deal for my family since we’ve grown up, but the candy is still just as good. I love early-year holidays because they are centered around candy. Peeps are a must and Sweet Tart’s Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies are also a good get. And the Cadbury Eggs, of course.
Dying Eggs. It goes along with Easter and all of its festivities, but I love dying eggs. A house filled with a vinegar aroma reminds me of many Easters with my family. And the dying packs have gotten much more creative since my earlier days, but I still enjoy the crayon that allows you to write on the eggs.
Pastel Colors. While I love the rich colors that come with fall and winter, change is good. And pastels are good. I love using pastels in my wardrobe, nails, or anywhere I can fit it in.
March is bringing a lot to the table, and I’m sure there will be even more unplanned excitement. Here’s hoping March brings plenty of sunshine and happiness to everyone. Happy weekend!
