bye, March!

As this month closes, and a new one begins, I HAVE to reflect on March. It was beyond. Such a great month. It started with the Houston Rodeo kickin' off. This year I was so happy to be on a committee for the first time. It was pretty fun talking to the rodeo-goers and being behind the scenes. It also felt great to "give back" to something I've partaken in my whole life (first rodeo ever: Billy Ray Cyrus, ha!)

 me and my friend, Laura, are on a committee together and stayed for several shows. It's SO great to have that ride or die friend that's down for anything!

In the smack dab middle of rodeo, was also my first time to visit Las Vegas!! Our bffs were celebrating their 10 year anniversary and had asked us long ago if we wanted to go and celebrate with them. I'm so happy we did. I really liked that city!! Everything's open late and sparkly and THAT's my kinda place! We stayed at the Venetian, which was faaaaab

We saw two great shows (Penn & Teller and Cirque De Soliel: LOVE) We're STILL trying to figure out how they did some (ok, all) of those tricks.

We walked and walked and walked walked and looked and looked and looked. We celebrated Melissa & Anthony's anniversary with a little ceremony at a chapel. I didn't plan on crying, but who can not?! I've been best friends with her since forever (our families go way back). And to stand by them at their wedding, to have seen them become parents (x2), to be the Godparents of their girls, get through tough stuff, and celebrate great stuff, YOU JUST CRY. It was meant to be that our husbands are bffs too. One of life's great blessings, fo' sho'.

We did a heli tour of the Grand Canyon and that was epiiiic.

We've literally been through highs and low's with them: the highs of the Rocky Mountains, and the lows of the Grand Canyon, haha. It was a wonderful time with wonderful people and I'm so happy we got to do it. Had to get back home and finish up that rodeo! 

The month ended with my hub's birthday! And a great visit to my in-law's!

Oh, and of course I can't leave out that Fran man turned 4 this month!!

March is definitely one of my favorite months each year!! This one was exhausting, but thrilling and fun. I hope you had a great one too. Now life'll be calmer for a while, and I'll keep trying to enjoy each day!   

 

Happy April!!!
