Spring Break Plans???

Hey hey!

 

So with March comes Spring Break! I know not everyone is in school to where you get the week or some time off, but I know there are still tons of extra activities and even special events that occur during this time for anyone to enjoy so I wanted to know what or if you had any plans.

 

Whether it's making a visit back home, taking a vacation or trip, happy hour with the ladies or a couple of girls' nights, hitting up the theaters, concerts, going to the beach, lounging by the pool, or even just staying in, what's on the schedule?

 

As for me, no specific plans during the week, minus work. My weekends this month are crazy packed, everything from make up/hair bookings, family dinners, to people visiting from out of town, to birthdays, I'll be keeping busy!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Sounds like you have a lot of fun things going on!  I will be seeing family, and hopefully we're going to go see the new Oz movie Smiley Very Happy

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Oooo, that's right! It is coming out! Will you be travelling to see your fam or are they coming to see you?

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Going to see them, they'll be coming out to see me in a few months though, and considering there's some fighting between members (this is normal), this allows me to see the greatest amount of family. Smiley Happy

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Buhhhh. Work life here.

No plans for Spring Break except building up my raised garden beds on weekends. However, I did just book some vacation time in May to go hiking with my boyfriend, really excited! Sometimes I wish I were back in school to get long holidays, then again I'd rather have paid time off. Hehe! 

Re: Spring Break Plans???

PTO is the best!!!! Oooo, what type of garden is it going to be? Fruits and veggies or plants and flowers?

Re: Spring Break Plans???

I just put in my order for the non-GMO seeds (which I highly recommend). Veggies and then a seperate barrel for the herbs! 

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Nice! I always wanted a garden!

 

What veggies do you have planned out for?

Re: Spring Break Plans???

orange habanero peppers, yellow banana peppers, homestead tomatoes, scallions, cucumbers (pickling), and edamame.

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Edamameeeeeeee! *droooooooool*

 

I could snack on that stuff for hours!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Ooooh!  I love gardens, but have a black thumb >.> How do you do it?  I'd really love to grow an okra plant at some point, do you have any pointers on that?  Have fun with your garden!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Smiley Sad Awwww, poor, Moregun and your black thumb!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

I've never tried to grow okra, mainly because I don't like the texture. Haha but I'm sure its not that hard.

To cover your black thumb, use green gloves! 

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Hahaha, make them incognito!!! Undercover thumbs!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

*hums Mission Impossible theme* Yeah!  Sounds like the way to go, and may I recommend eating them fried?  Any other way they tend to be oddly sticky, and well, the seed texture is weird haha.  Frying for whatever reason cancels it all out and brings out its rich, savory flavor Smiley Happy  Also, it's definitely best paired with a jalapeno pepper jelly Smiley Tongue

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Nice! I live in da dirty south, so I think I've tried okra in all possible ways. Just doesn't agree with my palette. Ha

Re: Spring Break Plans???

It happens, I'm definitely far enough north that we don't get much okra, so a lot of people up here haven't really tried it, shouldn't have assumed >.>  I love most southern food though, especially when we get into Cajun and Creole foods ^.^

Re: Spring Break Plans???

I love how so many of the conversations here turn into being about food!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

My Spring Break is this week, and I still have homework.  *sigh*  But it is not as much as I've had on previous breaks.  I'll be spending time with Lanndan and friends, and I'll also be doing some Spring Cleaning.  It's supposed to stay pretty for the week, so I'll be able to give my car, named Layla, a good bath and not have to worry about rain, mud, or snow the next day lol.  

 

Ever since I've been in college, my mom takes a day off from work during Spring Break, and we have a mother daughter day.  This time, we're just going to spend the day in JC. Although the wedding won't be for a while, mom said we'll browse some wedding places/dresses just for the heck of it lol.  

 

In a way, I think my mom is kind of excited about it.  She and dad didn't have an actual wedding.  They just had a court house wedding, which there is nothing wrong with that.  She has dropped hints to dad that she would like to renew their vows when their 25th anniversary rolls around.  Dad hasn't said yes or no to that.  Instead, he just cracks a joke: "Our current ones haven't expired."   lol.

Re: Spring Break Plans???

awww, kimmi, that is so sweet!!  i like your dad's joke too, haha.

Re: Spring Break Plans???

My dad loves to joke around lol.  

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Ooooo, a renewal and a wedding ceremony! I bet your mom and dad are going to be just as happy that day as they first were when they got wed! It's a huge milestone for them and I'm sure your mom will rock a fierce manicure from ya!

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Happy Spring Break to all of you college gals! Hope you enjoy you're time off and don't have too much homework to worry about! Smiley Happy 

 

Enjoy! Smiley Happy

Re: Spring Break Plans???

What about you, Fran? Plans? Heheh, what is the Fran plan?

Re: Spring Break Plans???

Well, this Spring Break has officially started off in the worst way possible.  My almost 15 year old Bassett Hound, Jewel, is going to have to be put to sleep.  :'(    When I went outside yesterday, I discovered her legs and paws were swollen and she was having trouble standing up and walking.  She's also drinking a lot of water at once, heaved a few times, and not going to the bathroom as much as she should.  My mom thinks it may be her kidneys and her age.  

 

We tried to get a hold of the vet yesterday, but no one answered or returned our calls.  There's also not an emergency clinic where I live.  

 

I sat outside with her for three hours straight before my mom made me come in for a bit to get out of the wind and off the damp ground.  If we can't get a hold of the vet today, my neighbor and I will take her to the vet tomorrow since my parents work day shift.  More than likely, she will have to be put to sleep because of her age.  Although I don't want her to leave, I can't stand seeing her in pain.  Seeing her shake and whatnot while she stands makes me cry even more.  As I'm typing this, I'm waiting for her to wake up.  I don't want to wake her up from rest because I'm hoping some sort of miracle will happen.  I also need dad's help to get her out.

 

I'm not typing this for a pity party or anything like that.  I pretty much share a lot of things with the online BT family.  If I could ask one thing, just pray/think/whatever you do that when Jewel's time comes that is a peaceful transition.  I love her so much.  :'(
