Spring Break!!!

Hey there again everybody!  It's been a wonderful Spring Break, but it's back to the grind before it starts, I figured I'd send out an update :)

After getting back and recuperating from a fun-filled trip to South Carolina, I faced a week of...catching up, relaxing, and fun! :) I don't feel too guilty though, because the week before was crazy and exams are coming I kind of deserved it :)  As a matter of fact, I even went to work on Wednesday and was able to participate in a film screening for "Stop Bullying: Speak Up!"  The event was sponsored by Cartoon Network and was geared towards local children and teaching them how they can put an end to bullying.  At the event I had the opportunity to meet Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (U.S. Secretary of Health  and Human Service), Don Lemon (CNN Anchor), and the President/CEO of Cartoon Network.  It is great that more and more people are taking the bullying issue seriously and I encourage all of you to watch the video (it's about 30 minutes) and share it with others, especially those who have children:

The panel, including Don Lemon and Kathleen Sebelius.
The rest of the week was spent playing catch-up (and even getting somewhat ahead!) and taking some me time/having fun!  Between lunches and dinners, I made sure to get in my daily exercise (and tanning for good measure!), especially given that my 50-mile race is in just four weeks!  We even got to have a special celebratory birthday dinner for Amy and met her at her favorite Italian restaurant in Old Town times!

Amy's Birthday Bash

To wrap up the fun, I got a call from a friend of mine in L.A. who was in D.C. for the week on business and we met up so that I could play tour guide! I sure am glad that people come and visit, because it gives me a good reason to go out and see the city myself :) Also, Saint Patrick's Day marked three years since Seth and I first met...and thanks to the luck o' the Irish, we are still a happy family and so grateful to have found each Rihanna said, "we found love in a hopeless place!"  

Seth and Honey: my happy little family :)

Until next time, much love and may the luck o' the Irish find you all too...ciao!
