March Madness

I'm rather late in posting for March, given that it's almost the end of April!  I have been very poor about picking up my camera as of late.  It's not that I don't miss it, I just haven't made it a priority and have been very busy with other more pressing matters. 
March was a month full of sadness and delight. 
We said goodbye to some dear friends who left for a new life in Texas.  Even though C&E didn't live just up the road and we only got together a few times a year, just having them close enough to get together when we wanted will be greatly missed!  Having only met them 4 short years ago, they are good people who we enjoyed spending time we'll just have to plan to do it via a trip! ;) 
Some sweet treats were discovered this month, the new cake pops from Starbucks are delightful!  Birthday cake (the pink one) and Rocky Road are both good, but I think birthday cake edges out the RR by just a slight bit.  I came across Lindt's delicious dark chocolate with a hint of salt while babysitting my friend Julie's kids one afternoon.  Seriously good stuff!
After a long, dark, windy, cold winter...we finally started to see some signs of spring!  Unfortunately these are the only signs of spring so far, the weather is still cold, windy and wet! =P 
March marked my first ever 5K race!  I ran in the St. Patty's Day Dash in Tacoma.  Of course it was wet for my first race, but I didn't care.  I had a great time, went into it with the goal of  finishing in 30 minutes or less.  My official time was 30 minutes 12 seconds.  I'm extremely happy with my time and the accomplishment.  Michel and I have decided to do one 5K a month for the year giving consideration to 10K races next year!  We are skipping out of a race this month (april) due to busyness that is all consuming and will be disclosed in next month's post! 
Hope your March was full of good madness!
