Fresh Air // Bust A Move

Last night I put my to-do list, workout, and other various errands aside to spend the evening outside and take in the fresh air. I sat in my favorite lounge chair and soaked up the almost 80 degree sun on our deck with Rocky, then walked around our backyard barefoot to see what pretty things I could find. Sometimes it doesn't take going far or much effort...just stepping outside our home left me feeling grateful for the beautiful weather, and most importantly our home. I found some pretty flowers in our yard just starting to bloom, and it made me excited for what the rest of Spring will bring.

Welcome pretty yellow flowers...please stay as long as you please...

Rocky's favorite place is our deck. It's like you can almost read his mind...he just loves feeling the breeze on his face when he sticks his head through the posts.

It's safe to say we enjoyed you, sunshine. 

...and the fun didn't stop when the sun went down. 
Nope, I had my mind on something else.
That's where my favorite fro-yo place comes in...

I got my typical chocolate/raspberry with fruit and oreos, but felt the need to add some mint in there for St. Patricks Day.
Don't act surprised...

This evening was a great reminder that: no matter how busy life gets-take the time to enjoy your surroundings, to do what makes you happy, to spend time with those who make you smile. 
Typically, your to-do list and the other stuff can wait.

What have you done lately to get a breath of fresh air?
Go out and do somethin'! You won't regret it. :)

Speaking of fresh air, 
this girl right here is also a breath of fresh air
I met the gorgeous Holly here in blogland, then we became real life friends! Holly is big here in blog world..so you are s'rsly missing out if you don't follow her blog already.
Her BIRTHDAY is this Saturday. Yes, on St. Patricks Day. She has the coolest birthday ever, right? Anyway, homegirl has some of the best moves I've ever seen.
After you're done reading, please go to her blog and
wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Let's spread the love.

Hello Keep Calm & Carry On-ers!
My name is Holly and I blog over at Running in Stilettos.
I am so excited that Katie let me take over her blog today to tell you a little bit about myself. I first met Katie in December 2011 when she and I planned a Columbus blogger meet up. I was anxious and excited to meet her after emailing back and forth for a few weeks, and I really felt like I already knew her.
{see, we're BFFs}
This girl knows how to keep it real, and you definitely get the real Katie on her blog.
Well, we greeted each other like we were old friends and now we get together along with some other fabulous bloggers (ahem, Alicia and Kelsey).
But if there is one thing Miss Katie and I agree on, anytime is a good time to bust a move! I think you can really learn a lot about a person by their dancing.
 Let's take me for example:
{I love smiling. Smiling's my favorite.}
 {I am a hard working woman.}
 {I am an 80s child. Mr. Roboto anyone?}
 {I'm good under pressure.}
{I can roll with the punches.}
 {I will sacrifice myself for others.}
 {I share the wealth.}
 {I don't take myself too seriously.}
 {I am supportive.}
{Once I set a goal, I can't be stopped.}

I know, it's like you've known me forever, right?!
 If I can give you one piece of advice... NEVER STOP DANCING!
Now, bring your sweet buns on over to my blog, Running in Stilettos and say "HI!"
Thank you so much for having me, Katie! xoxo

now head on over and wish Holly a Happy Birthday!
she deserves it :)
