march madness

March Madness is right and tonight it's Team Suck vs. Team Happy! Both of these teams have been some of the strongest ones this season. This month has flown by with a lot of crazy surprises, and Team Suck is moving up in the brackets. Here are some of the highlights...

1. Work, work, work - that is all Sean and I did this month!

Poor Baby H.
2. Some drunk slammed into our least I am hoping they were drunk because who hits a parked car? Slam dunk!

3. It has been the coldest March in 28 years! That means that it hasn't been this cold in Chicago since I was born! Not that we don't enjoy cold weather but this is just I really want (need) to start running outside if I plan on keeping up with Sean at the beach this summer. 

4.! I unfortunately owe taxes this year. Foul!

Timeout - Enough about the Sucks because when we take a look at the stats, Team Happy has been bringing their A-game this season, lets look at some of the top highlights...

1. My good friend Amanda had her little girl, Chloe. I cannot wait to go to Florida and see her!

2. It was Amanda's and Amber's birthdays this month - two of my BFFs, Happy Birthday! Love them!

3. One of my other best friends, Mallory, got engaged! And she asked me to be a bridesmaid, I cannot wait to spend that special day with her. Three points!

4. In relation, Mallory came to visit me for a much needed "girls weekend" and we totally shopped, ate a lot, drank a lot, saw a band and watched Say Yes to the Dress while looking at bridal magazines.

5. Food! Mallory and I ate at Franks 'n Dawgs for lunch and it was AMAZING. Think gourmet meets the hot dog plus BYOB. I had a fancy lamb hot dog and Mal had a good old-fashioned Chicago dog. We also ate at Pizza Art Cafe. The place is very small and romantic with only a few tables and BYOB. We all shared the bruschetta and Mallory had the antipasti with octopus. Sean and I shared a smoky beef pizza with an egg on it, so delicious! Field goal!

6. Skinny Girl Margarita! This whole bottle only has 400 calories and it taste so fresh. I've already gone through 2 bottles myself. Slam dunk!

7. Last but not at all least - Sean and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary! Time flies when you are crazy happy. I just love him so much! Four point play!

FINAL SCORE - Suck 4, Happy 7...Team Happy wins!

swimsuit season

It has been a few years since I have bought myself a new swimsuit and I think I finally found two that I would definitely consider buying. I never thought in a million years that I would buy or even LIKE a white swimsuit but I am absolutely in love with this one. Classic and glamorous.

This next one I know is more my style and personality. I love wearing blue and purple, so with the contrasting patterns and the illusion of the ever popular "cinched waste" this suit is a dream. It even looks comfortable for a swimsuit! Now if I can just get that girls body...
