Ah, March.  The month filled with St. Patrick's Day, the first day of spring, and March Madness!!! Plus lots of green, my favorite color, and our anniversary!  And the best day of all, Pi day!!!!! All those things put a big smile on my face :)

This month we started to get outside more, starting with a trip to Discovery Park right here in Seattle.

Gorgeous views of the Sound (Puget Sound, for all you non-locals), and the peninsula beyond (that's the Olympic Peninsula, where Tim & I both grew up).  You can't really see from my iPhone pic, but there's Mt Rainier behind those trees on the left!  
My man and my sweet puppy!
We tried making pineapple-apple-mint juice in our Vitamix...but think we'll stick to the juicer next time.  It was absolutely delicious after all the straining!
Mia being adorable with her giant soccer bag.
What a sweet little devil!
Completely obsessed with cherry blossoms this month.  They are so cheerful!  Did you catch my post on Friday of the famous UW cherry blossoms?

All dressed up for the opera!

Yummy food!  On the left, we discovered our new favorite pasta dish from Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen, and delicious peanut butter mousse from Artusi!
Sunny day hiking at Little Si!  Mia was too exhausted to hike back down, so Tim carried her :) 

I love friends who love their dogs as much as I love mine!  My friend Andrea was having an 'adoptaversary' birthday party for her sweet dog Aiden.  I love Belltown Pub for allowing dogs!

On the beautiful Kirkland waterfront one evening, celebrating one of Tim's best friend's birthday!
Testing out the improved cameras on the iPhone 6- great with these drink pictures, but the waiter didn't focus the camera for all the group pics she took, bummer!
I found a new favorite Instagram account, dogsbeingbasic

Pi day! I love love love love love Pi day!  I don't really like pie much, but Pi rocks my socks off! Especially this year, as it's the one day this century where Pi day is truly Pi day!  On 3/14/15 at 9:26:53, we ran the Pi Day Dash!  So much fun :)
Mia came to run with us, and then spent the next three days sleeping :)
Tim got to watch the Sounders practice from the sidelines before a recent game!   

I painted our hallway the same greige color as the rest of the condo and absolutely hated it, so back to light blue!  And we got our first Karma Sparkle Club shipment :)!  
Tim got a cute picture of Mia and I!
Celebrating St Patrick's Day with green beer, vegan shepherd's pie, and glitter hats!

And lastly, look at this adorable tiny little cute laundry soap bottle!!  

Happy March!

Cherry Blossoms at UW

Cherry blossoms blooming are a definite sign that spring is on the way.  I for one, have always wanted to travel to DC or Japan to see them blooming, but I sometimes forget what we have in our own backyard: the famous cherry blossoms in the Quad at UW!

While we have cherry blossoms all over the city, UW has a good concentration of trees in one spot, along with all the fancy buildings that come with universities.  Anyone miss seeing all the amazing buildings everyday in college?
Anyway, Tim and I went to see the cherry blossoms in person, and they did not disappoint! This is going to become a yearly tradition now!

If you want to visit the cherry blossoms at UW yourself, there are a couple weeks left of glory!  Click here for more information!
