March is behind us and what a month it was! I am not really sure how it is already April (said everyone), but we have many rad things planned in the next few weeks, and I’m just ready to see where life goes.
Thanks for everyone for their comments, love, and suggestions from this week’s post on balance. Sometimes life seems to go so damn fast, that you forget to look back and reflect on the good.
Some of my favorite moments from March 2015:
A fun Monday night was spent with my fellow Tampa Bay Bloggers learning all about the Give & Grub Food Truck, their mission, and of course sampling some ah-mazing eats!
My goal each month is to sign up for a 5k. This is so I have to keep ‘training’ and can’t stop. March’s race was the Bolts Run with the Tampa Bay Lightning. I love the course for this 5k. My time was awful, but I shaved 11 minutes off my last 5k in February, and I wasn’t as tired after, which is a huge improvement for me. I’ll take whatever small feats I can get, my friends.
Post-cruise, but still in vacation mode, we attended this year’s Spring Beer Fling at Curtis Hixon Park! The weather was perfect, the drinks were tasty, and you can’t beat the view! I can’t wait for Big City’s next event in May; Margarita Fest (last year’s recap, here).
We kept vacation going, and had dinner at Ulele. I have been once before, but this was Jason’s first time, and his request as a belated birthday dinner. We opted for an early dinner (3:30pm) so we could have the night to get ready for real life again. We started with an order of Fresh Calamari. I absolutely love calamari, and try to order it whenever we can. As much as I love the food at Ulele, I thought the Calamari was too salty, which I just wasn’t expecting.
For dinner, I ordered the Florida Pompano, a dish I had been craving since the last time I dined at Ulele. I love this meal so much. I don’t know if it is because of the fried carrot ribbons, the flaky, fresh fish, or the sauce that accompanied, but this dish is beyond delicious! Jason ordered several small bites; Mac and Cheese (no crab), and the Florida Native Chili (so good!). We were full, happy, and finally ready to end our break from reality.
Breakfast dates, and walks with my sweet, sweet niece. Don’t worry, the Maxmosa from Cicco Cali was all for me, not baby.

How was your March? Happy April!
