Farewell to the Best March Ever

The weather this March has been the best that I can remember in a long time. And by that I mean since March 2007. So, I have really high hopes for a fabulous April! Happy April Everyone!

Last night I celebrated April's Eve by having dinner on the Happy Gnome patio. It was so nice, until the sun went down and then it got cold and I got cranky. But up until then it was awesome. Plus, it's Holy Week. And that means that this upcoming Sunday I can shop again. Hallelujah indeed.

This year for Lent I gave up shopping, which may not seem like a big deal or a good thing to give up for Lent, but it actually was. I learned that I have a lot of stuff and I probably don't need to have that much stuff. Also, while I love shopping so much, I learned that I can live without doing it every week. I think I'm going to continue not really shopping for awhile longer, until I see summer stuff that I really want.

Anyhow, NME resolutions...push ups everyday. It's almost tank top season, and while my wrists are pleasant and dainty, my upper arms are flabby as a hippopotamus.

A couple of comments for you:
First, love the picture from Hollywood Studios of the pansies falling out of the baskets. Pansies are a sure sign that spring is around the corner. In fact, I think I'm going to run out and buy a pansy basket this weekend.

Second, congratulations on making it a month without buying any clothes. This must explain your desire to accompany me on several shopping trips during the month of Lent. You have been living vicariously through my spending.

Third, can you believe eating on a patio on March 31? Craziness I tell you.

Fourth, I do not believe your arms are flabby.

Love ya,

Thanks for all of the acknowledgements that it's time for me to start shopping! My credit card is so sad and lonely in my purse.
