Insta-Gratitude Week 12

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has."     -Epictetus

It's the first day of spring and the current temperature is 5 degrees.  Yikes.  I'm dreaming of drinks on patios, early morning jogging (I said dreaming), tulips, a vegetable garden and baseball games.  March is always a rough month for me because it just doesn't seem to end.  I need to pull it together and get over it.  Mother Nature feels like being a little bit of a bi-otch this year and there isn't much I can do.  So, here's my last week and the things that I was thankful for:

A night at home with just me and the dogs, watching Bravo and doing all of the above. #treatyoself
Taking another out of town visitor to the Gopher Bar - one of my favorite dives in all of MN. 
He returned home after a week away.  I know it isn't that long, but he was missed.
Our "first place" medals from the Get Lucky 7k.  I had so much fun celebrating St. Patrick's Day this year, even though I didn't get to spend the WHOLE day in St. Paul.
Sunday AM breakfast with most of the family.  Pancakes from dad, cupcakes from Jen and Juice & YUMchata from us.
A very interesting trip to the grocery store, especially coming home with Cap'n Crunch and Lucky Charms.
The most hilarious lunch date.  This is J doing his Michael Jackson face... I have no explanation.  
Now, I'm going to go and wait for spring and be jealous of all my friends that live in warmer places... I love winter, but I'm kind of over it.  I'm officially on the bandwagon of people who use social media to bitch about the weather.  Sorry I'm NOT sorry.
