I think spring is really coming. I am starting to come out of my hibernation shell and get out more. I think it's also been good for my mental health because whenever I don't see people enough I start to get a little crazy. I suppose that's the extrovert in me.
My weekend started on Thursday. One nice thing about subbing is that I can make my own schedule. I finally got a chance to go to Cocktails at the Conservatory, where we drank martinis and looked at pretty flowers & glass art. It was nice to see some green plants after not seeing anything living for awhile. We then grabbed some dinner at Barley's Smokehouse and Brewpub, which is a local microbrewery. I got the burger with bacon and avocado slices...so good!

Last night some very good friends came to visit us. We grabbed dinner at California Pizza Kitchen, checked out a few stores at the mall, got Coldstone for dessert, then came back to our house for a couple rousing games of Outburst Remix and Scene It Xbox edition. Most of the time my friends don't like to have game nights with me because I tend to be overly competitive and get pretty angry when I lose, but I actually held it together and did not complain when I lost both games. Am I finally learning to enjoy games just for the sake of playing them with friends for fun? Let's hope so.
Today I plan on getting a few things done around the house, doing a little reading, grabbing coffee with an old friend, and possibly hanging out with some other friends later tonight.
What are you up to this weekend?
