Another Manic Monday & I Can’t Wait for Happy Hour

Ahhhh, it’s starting to feel a lot like summer! Warm weather, spring showers, restaurants opening back up for the season, dining outside on restaurant patios — you know I love to sit on a nice, big deck in the summertime ūüėČ — and Easter is right around the corner. I didn’t paint any eggs, but I did find some chocolate this weekend. That chocolate bunny didn’t stand a chance. Speaking of chocolate, yay for Bixby!! Maybe we should all celebrate with chocolate martinis. Yep, that sounds legit. Alright, here’s what’s up this week –
