I Heart March

by Alaina on March 1, 2011 · 20 comments

March is my favorite month of the year. That and October (check out my new wedding page!). March is the beginning of spring; the (hopeful) beginning of warm weather but most importantly…

…it’s my birthday month! My birthday is March 18th and it’s on a Friday this year. I already have a 5k planned for the 19th (the St. Pat’s 5k in Providence). This is my third year running this race and I’m determined to beat my 32:53 time that I got last year and the year before! And my birthday lands on the last day of Restaurant Week so maybe I’ll take advantage of that! :-)

For a short month, February had a lot going on and it actually didn’t fly by! Here’s a recap:

It’s Snowmaggedon!
Super Brownies
Turner Fisheries
Blue Ribbon & BSB
Back from Vegas!
Vegas Eats
Vegas Casino’s & Events
Hoover Dam
Playing Catch Up
Papa Razzi
When the Husband’s Away…
Home Run
And a few posts about me! :-P

The big events of the month were, of course, the amazing trip to Las Vegas and all of the moving done for when David deploys. We are officially out of our apartment and currently in a hotel until tomorrow, when I’ll be moving into my new place with my sister in law.

It’s really starting to hit me now that he’ll be gone and I won’t see him until October. :-( I’m so lucky to have a great support system though with my family, his family and my friends. I’m hoping that the year will just fly by.

But I will look forward to my birthday this month! Over the past few years, I’ve had some fun parties.

2008 – 24th Birthday – Family party at my parents house

2009 – 25th Birthday – Quarter Century party at Kings Back Bay! Pictures courtesy of Mike
Sooo…no more pictures :-(
BUT my friends Jess and Sarah went out to Cambridge with me since my birthday is right after St. Patrick’s Day! And David was away for Army training.


My free stuff. :-P

2010 – 26th Birthday- Family party at our apartment. Nothing fancy.

Not sure what I’ll be doing this year though. I’m sure it’ll be a good one though!

What are you looking forward to most about March?
