What did I smile about in March!

March was another hectic month with lots to capture - it was filled with friends, travel and lots of fun. Surprisingly this year we had no winter in Texas. The weather has been gorgeous - which also makes me nervous. TheAC's were switched on in mid March so we are looking at high electric bills and may be a really HOT summer this year. But till that happens we definitely enjoyed the beautiful sunshine.

10th Wedding anniversary! - To celebrate our 10 years of commitment we decided to take a little weekend trip to Scottsdale Arizona. I travel to Phoenix all the time for work and had heard great things about the Phoenician resort so we decided to go check it out. It was amazing - the weather was perfect and we definitely got some R&R.
Flower surprise - I love love love fresh flowers - they bring so much joy and always make people smile (even in bad times). Amit got these beautiful flowers delivered to my office on our anniversary and I wasnt expecting anything since we just got back from our trip.
Pinterest inspired - thanks to my obsession with pinterest I tried this new recipe for Quinoa burgers. They were delish if I may say so myself.
Friends visit - we had a full house with friends in town and it was so much fun. I wish they would all move to Dallas but at least Austin is only a few hours away.
Photography class - I had bought a groupon a while ago and finally took the time to take the class. It was fun and I definitely learned some new tricks. I am going to enjoy taking much better pictures just in time for our big trip to Greece. Now I just need to find a great zoom (multipurpose) lens - suggestions? See the difference in the pictures below - We were taught to play with the manual mode. Definitely need to spend more time with this mode.
Mavs game and Nadia Ali - a bunch of us went to the Mavs game against the Spurs and we won - perfect end! After the game we headed to watch Nadia Ali sing. I don't know many of her songs but it turned out to be a great night.
Southlake town square - we met some friends for Dinner at Brio (love their food) and put my photography class to a test. Took some pictures of these two precious models.
Arboretum - We finally made it to the Spring bloom this year. Amit and I have been talking about this for years and I am glad we got there this year. It was a beautiful day (Amit would disagree as it started to get a little too warm for him at the end). The flowers were gorgeous - I wish my yard looked like this.
 
Blue Bonnets - They are everywhere and I love them. There a small patch behind our house where they grow every year and so Amit and I captured a few pictures. I have to give Amit credit for these pictures - especially the ones with the Bee.
Dinner with Barbs - Its been months since I have seen Barbara so we caught up over dinner. Its always a pleasure to spend time with Yu!
