I am (finally) out of my slump!

So, I'm pretty sure it's official.

I think I've completely ended my winter-long slump.

It was a joint effort between the beautiful SPRING weather we had this weekend and the willingness to wake up this morning and say to myself "I AM going to have a good day...even though it's Monday."

Plus, I had a really good weekend. It's funny. The second it reaches a decent temperature, it's like this state comes to life. The sun is shining. People are out. Dogs are playing in yards. Rhode Islanders are actually...smiling. Ok, maybe I wouldn't go that far. But there is a definite change in the atmosphere...that's for sure.

We went to dinner with a big group of friends on Friday night and then headed to another friend's house to watch the KU game. Sadly, they lost (and for those of you fellow K-Staters who are reading this...ignore that part that I was cheering on the Jayhawks).

Then Saturday, it was B-E-A-utiful outside. So, of course we took full advantage. Clean the cars? Check. Walk the dogs? Check. Grab two iced coffees, place patio chairs in the middle of the yard and enjoy the amazing sun? Definite check!

Later that night, we enjoyed Newport's Restaurant Week. We went to this ADORABLE 1930's Paris-inspired restaurant called Tucker's Bistro. It was amazing. AND, Mr. Ruby and I had an incredibly romantic dinner for two with the best seats in the house. I love me a good date night.
