can i get a jesse spano impression up in here?
but unlike jesse, i’m not taking pills.
and well, i’m not scared at all.
i’m really just excited about the fact that it’s march. and well, i have managed to jam pack my social calendar (with a little help from my friends and family, hey thanks guys for getting married and for having babies, my social life would really just like to give you a big hug) this spring and therefore the dawning of a new month means that those scheduled activities are that much closer to becoming more than just “save the dates” in my google calendar.
and because you may or may not want to get a hold of me or perhaps you often sit and ponder what i might be doing/where i might be going in the coming weeks (if only for the fact that maybe you have a guy you want to set me up with and you want to ensure i’ll be in town so you can coordinate a meeting between us two -ha, that’s funny), i want to let you in on the fun things i am really really excited about doing and/or seeing in the not so distant future.
a day at the bnp paribas open (or as i like to call it, the indian wells tennis tourney in…you guessed it, indian wells, ca) -this has become a family tradition, gosh, like five+ years strong? it’s really just the best. a full day in the sun, with the fam, with anyone and everyone worth watching on the tennis circuit. and the neat thing about this particular tourney is the fact that you can watch players warm-up on the practice courts and get like really really close to them. close enough to see if they really are just as in shape/attractive in person. and close proximity has taught me that yes, ivanovic is basically an exotic goddess (legs for days, people. DAYS) and rafa is actually taller in real life but his biceps are just as lovely as they appear to be on tv. i’ve already checked the weather and forecast says? 84 degrees. pale gams rejoice! momma’s hoping to get a little color on you guys.
an afternoon at the nat (apparently that’s what we call the san diego natural history museum these days, how very hip of them!) with momma to take in the quite anticipated titanic exhibit. in case you don’t remember the exact date of the sinking of the titanic (don’t worry, i randomly do -april 12th, 2012), this year marks the 100th anniversary of its arrival at a watery grave. i haven’t been to a museum probably since my weekly visits to the prado in madrid some five and a half years ago (well isn’t that a humble brag if i’ve ever seen one) so i’m kind of excited to get all culture-y again.
a pending hair appointment with a new hair gal to give these limp locks some love. hey, you may disagree but much like a pedicure, gettin your hurrr did is one of life’s simplest joys. if only for the scalp massage and after-cut/color styling.
a very surfer-dude-gnarly-waves-brah-themed baby shower for my sweet cousin and her little boy bun in the oven. it’s basically an excuse for gals to get together and eat mini sandwiches and fawn over really adorable little people’s clothes. plus i get to see some of my extended family members which is always a win in my book.
easter! yes, cadburry eggs have made their way back into a grocery store near you so that can only mean one thing -easter is well on its way! and while i can’t say that the fam and i have discussed exact plans for the holiday, i will say that i’m hoping for a repeat of last year’s decision to attend north coast calvary’s sunrise service on ponto beach. it was cold, but it was magical. so here’s hoping the rents are willing to brave the ocean breezes and sandy toes one more time for another memorable holiday.
my first trip of a) the year (one of many, woo hoo) and b) to the great state of tennesee (are you from tennesee? because you’re the only TEN I SEE! sorry, i couldn’t help myself) to see my BFF4L and her new nashville digs. i mean, the only reason i’m truly excited that march has arrived is the fact that it means april is not too far behind. because on april 13th, i will be boarding a southwest flight to nashville for four uninterrupted days with miss b. to say that i’m excited would be a gross understatement.
and there are most certainly items that will inevitably fall in between and after the above-listed occasions, and about those, i am equally as enthused (that has yoda syntax written all over it, doesn’t it?). but for now, there’s a snapshot of what i might be doing/where you might find me for the next sixish weeks.
because sometimes i play nasty games of phone tags. and therefore, it’s oftentimes easier to simply keep y’all abreast to my recent haps and pending haps by listing them here.
so consider yourselves up to speed.
