|Cherry Blossom Roll, Bonsai Japanese Steakhouse|
Brent took me to a new sushi restaurant last night, Bonsai Japanese Steakhouse. It was incredible! I'm not a huge fan of sushi, so I ordered their chicken teriyaki - it was perfect. I did try a piece of Brent's California roll, and despite the fact that I don't like sushi, I enjoyed it. We'll definitely be going back!
After dinner, we saw the movie Rio (Brent loves kids' movies... he even made me see Mars Needs Moms with him!), and it was pretty good. We definitely needed a night out together, and I'm starting to feel a bit better about things.

Keys on Main Friday night was a blast... I was able to spend time with some friends that I haven't seen in ages, as well as others that I don't see nearly often enough. We were so busy having fun that I forgot to get a full picture of my dress, but I looked amazing! I paired my trusty LBD (a tight, strapless number with an embellished neck) with purple tights and my favorite black wedges, and a boyfriend blazer with rolled sleeves for warmth.

I think my camera was a little less than sober that evening too!

I feel like the events of the last few weeks have been cathartic for me... I've spent a lot of time writing, and trying to sort out a new perspective on my life. I definitely want to move forward and start accomplishing things of real value, but I find that I am unsure of what those things are. Eight months ago, I left my life as it was and started anew, but what have I really accomplished with that fresh start? I have a tendency to set lofty goals, but I never seem to achieve much in the way of actual progress towards them. I've decided that needs to change. Over the next few days, I'm going to take some time to set some specific, realistic goals for the next year, and map out some milestones for achieving them. I'll use this blog as a source of personal accountability to make sure that I stick to plan.
I've been so afraid of making the wrong decision that I've allowed myself to become paralyzed by that fear. It's spring, the Wheel is turning, and it's time to start moving with it or get dragged along behind it. There are very few things in our lives that we have absolute control over... It's time I took control of those things that are mine.
