So when do you get to the point where you no longer feel you're on the educational system time table, because the entire past week felt like Spring Break even if I didn't take a break from work or go anywhere.
I totally let go: skipped spin classes, ate warm fluffy doughnuts after sleeping-in too late, reorganized my room, adopted a mint plant, etc.

I also got an iPhone (if you knew my previous phone, you'll recognize this as a major step in my life) which I'm pretty much obsessed with. Thus, I decided to document my "not a Spring Break Spring Break" via the iPhone camera. Don't worry, it's only a matter of time before I download hipstamatic.

- My first trip to the dog park! We took Walker's dogs Remy and Schilo and met up with some friends and their dogs: Winston, Kira and the hilarious bulldog appropriately named Higgins.
- We won Lost Ogle Trivia Night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- I finished Nick Flynn's Another Bullshit Night In Suck City. Highly, highly recommend.
- We celebrated St. Patrick's Day at the fun Midtown McNellie's street party. Note to self, invest in a green outfit.
- Walker's Mom took us to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art to see the extremely interesting George Nelson furniture exhibit (hello Meg!), as well as a last look at the Chihuly collection before it's closed a year for restoration.
- Christa's Wedding Day - mimosa brunch and beautiful reception at the Harn Homestead.
- We made the mistake of seeing Riding Hood. Avoid it at all costs. But do stock up on old-fashioned candy from Pinkitzel beforehand, the gummy soda bottles and soda pandas are always a classic.
- Walker and I competed against each other in a cupcake-making contest, judged by the one and only Colby Wedel and her refined palette. Walker made cupcakes that revolved around a corn theme and I made chocolate cherry cupcakes with a chocolate ganache inspired by this recipe by the one and only Pioneer Woman - I'm sure it's hard to guess who won.
- Colby let me tag along with her to a couple of free Barre3 classes and, as she promised, I'm addicted.
- I listened to Josh Rouse's Subtítulo ad nausem, there always seems to be a perfect album to pair with every year's blooming red bud tree season.

Starting today I'm promising one post every morning, Monday through Friday. I need to get myself on some sort of schedule.
