One of my best friends is getting married soon so we all decided to celebrate her happiness by throwing a bachelorette party for her at Mullet Toss this year.  We used to go all the time in our 20's and let me tell you it's very different in your 30's, ha.  

Here's the deal: Mullet Toss is legendary.  It's one of the biggest beach parties on the Gulf Coast.  People dress up in silly outfits and I love to people watch. It's very entertaining... Whatever. I have (almost) no shame doing it. 

And SPOILER ALERT: We had a blast!  It was great getting everyone together since it's harder these days with everyone starting families and moving to different cities.  Besides the couple of panic attacks that snuck up on me, I had a wonderful weekend with these girls.  I spent yesterday trying to pinpoint what brought on my attacks and I think it was the large social setting.  So something to work on still.  

Looking forward to Sarah and Blake's big day in two weeks. So until next time...

13. Pretty lights at the concert.
14. "That's beautiful" - yes, it was Gentleman of the Road.

Have you been in a funk the past few days? Weeks? It seems like everyone I've been talking to is in a transition, or fighting a rough time right now.  Myself included.  What's in the air?!  I think it helps to know we aren't alone in the feeling.

Even though work has been hectic in learning my new role (and I'm behind in my school work... EEKKKK) I have been lucky enough to have some down time to escape and cut loose.  Andrew and I had a great time celebrating St. Patrick's Day and an even better time at the Mumford & Sons concert last night.  I've seen the band three times (this was Andrew's second time) and it must be said they killed it yet again.  Hope they come back again soon.  My soul could use it.

Until next time...
