How could March already be over?!?!?!

Is March really over? It's hard to believe that we are a quarter of the way through 2014. I know it's really cliche but WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?!?!? This past week was just as busy as every other week except there were some BIG things going on!

Monday night was Scholarship dinner at the Delta Zeta House. One of the Alumna baked and decorated this gorgeous cake for the event. It tasted just as good as it looked! If you're needing a cake made, I highly recommend her! You can visit her website HERE.

On Tuesday night, I got the call that I had been waiting for! My nephew was on his way finally! He was born at 9:43am on Wednesday morning. My sister-in-law and the baby are doing super. I got to go visit the little man on Wednesday afternoon and I couldn't take my eyes off him. He is perfect and so tiny. I'm pretty sure he is going to be one spoiled little baby! 

Houston also had several large fires this past week. One of them was a 5 alarm fire at an apartment complex that was under construction pretty close to where I live. This is a picture one of my friends sent me. It's a pretty scary site but I am so thankful that nobody was injured.
This is what's left of the complex :(

Friday was a super emotional day for me. I gave my 2 weeks notice at work and I was a mess. My coworkers cried and then I cried and then we all cried together. I'm excited about my new opportunity but also sad to leave such a great work place! More on this in another post!

I'm going to be traveling during the week for my new job so I decided that I need to do some things I've been wanting to do in Houston since my time will be limited. So a group of my friends and I went to play TopGolf. If you don't know what that is, it is basically a really cool driving range. After a FOUR HOUR wait, we finally got to play. It was a lot of fun and I had forgotten how much I like golfing. I would definitely go back but probably not on a Saturday night. The wait was really too long.  

Sunday morning was spent with the new man in my life. He's now 5 days old and has changed so much. I, of course, had to be the mean Aunt and trim his nails and rip a band-aid off of his foot. His mom and dad were both chicken. He wasn't too happy with me but I know he still loves his Aunt Catherine :)

And here's a look at my Monday morning commute. Clark sits with his head resting on my shoulder every morning on his way to Grandma and Grandpa's house. He looks so pathetic!

And then like that, March is over and we are moving on into April. Summer is just around the corner and I am loving the weather!

Congrats on the new job! Excited to hear more! Four hours at Top Golf is crazy. I am close-ish to there so I guess I would have to put my name in, go home for a few hours, and then come back? How does one kill that much time? Oh and yay for your new nephew!

What a little cutie!! Hopefully once the new TopGolf opens in Spring next week, it will help with all the traffic at the other location!
