1. March MadnessEven if you're not a big basketball lover like I am, March Madness can still be a lot of fun. Let's face it, many of the people who have the best brackets really have no idea what they're doing. I always do a bracket at my school, along with one in a family pool for a little fun competition with my hubby. This year I filled out some with my students as well, so I've got four brackets to follow. It makes it a lot more fun to watch every game, and you feel like you care a little more!
2. A Team to Be Proud OfIf you've been following along in my last few Friday updates, you know that my school's girls basketball team has been making quite the run in the post-season. From coming back from a sixteen point deficit, to beating teams they've had to play four times, they've truly played their hearts out and made us all so proud. We made the trek to Columbia yesterday for the semi-final game, and sadly they did not come out victorious. There were a lot of crazy things in the game that could have completely changed the outcome in our favor- they just didn't. While a state championship won't be happening, they are still playing for third this morning- which is pretty dang good if you ask me!
I'm excited about spring break for ton of wonderful and totally valid reasons, but my biggest reason would have to be that we just so desperately need some time away to relax. Often times, our best form of relaxation is getting away from everything else around here: a little escape from the busyness. I can't wait to spend hours exploring cities (both familiar and old to us both), as well as chalk up some new state sign photos around the country. Thankful to have some time to play and make memories with my hubby in this sweet time of our lives.

4. Companion Pass!!If you remember reading 16 Things I'm Excited about in 2016, then you may recall my excitement (and hope) that we would get the Companion Pass for the rest of 2016 and 2017. I'm happy to report that as of this month we are officially Companion Pass holders (and that's without either one of us earning points by traveling for work). We didn't even have to buy a car. This means that one of us flies free for the rest of the year and ALL of 2017, and the other has about 110,000 points to work through! I may share a post later on about how we accomplished this, but for now I'm dreaming of all the awesome trips we already have planned for the next year and eight months.
