Ummm yeah....about that March photo of the day thing....I got bored before the first week was finished.  My plan was to put the daily photo on Instagram and then do one post on here with all of them at the end of the month.  Not.gonna.happen.

It's about to get honest up in here.  I try my damnedest to stay positive about just about everything.  I'm not perfect.  My life is not perfect.  I just try to make the best out of what I have.  I mean really, what's the alternative?  No thanks.  I have always been pretty content living the single life.  I'm independent and I enjoy living alone blah blah blah.  That being said I have lately started not enjoying it so much.  I had someone by my side for a while and I miss having that.  I hope that doesn't make me sound needy or sad.  It's just that most of my friends are in relationships or married (note to self: jealousy is a stinky cologne).  I've found myself in a funk about it and then fine and then funky and then fine.  You know it comes and goes.  I'm so over that roller coaster.  I don't have a solution (lobotomy?), but what I do know is that I spent the weekend surrounded by good friends and LOTS of fun and I feel great.  

How to un-funktify your life...
First, take a Friday off and brace yourself for some fun.
Tara called as I was driving home Thursday and said she was in town and wanted to have dinner.  Yes please!

After dinner we went and saw Aggie at Propaganda and listened to some Reggae bands.  Tara decided to stay the night and Friday morning we got up and went paddle boarding.  Awesome start to my staycation.

That afternoon I met up with Corey & we rode our bikes to the tri-rail where we met Lee and we were off to Ft Lauderdale.  Julie had given me a nights stay at The Hyatt Pier 66.  Love.  After we rode our bikes to the hotel and had a quick cleanup we rode over to the Sheraton to see the mermaid show.  Guess what?  WE MISSED IT!  The show is pretty short and we missed it by like 5 minutes.  I will for sure be going back.  The Wreck Bar was awesome.  Even more awesome was that Raena met us there!  Eeeeeep!  

(it wouldn't be an adventure without a flat tire)

We woke up bright and early on Saturday morning and rode our bikes back to the train station and choo-chooed our way back to Lake Worth for Reggae Fest at Bryant Park.  What started out to be a beautiful and very windy day ended in the skies opening.  We all ran for cover and then hunkered down at my house and ordered pizza.  When life hands you shitty weather you betta just order delivery.  After it had rained too much to bother going back to a muddy Reggae Fest I decided to go have a slumber party at Lori & Nick's house.  What a great decision because I got to have some fun Cleary time AND Nick and I went late night fishing.  That was a crazy adventure all in itself.

On Sunday there was a matinee Punk Rock Show/BBQ at The Snooze Theatre.  I'm pretty sure that it was a combination of the music and old friends that were in new bands, but man I felt 15 all over again.  And I hadn't been to The Snooze before then and of course it was awesome.  Anything attached to Jordan/Christine/Ebba has no other option then to be awesome.

Moral of the story?  Kelly, get your head out of your ass.  Life is good.
