Written by Jaymi Naciri on Wednesday, 19 March 2014 12:26 pm

Winter's harshest days have come and gone. The body clock has righted itself after a week of clock-lag. The NCAA Tournament is gloriously upon us. It's March, and we couldn't be happier.

March is sunny and Springy and on the cusp of everything beautiful. We can't get enough of it - clearly. Which is why we've compiled our list of:

The 64 Reasons We're Mad About March.

1. More real estate inventory coming onto the market

2. Inventory is greater, but buying season hasn't totally taken off yet which means more choice for you.

3. Still-record-low rates = greater homebuying power

4. Warmer temps - finally!

5. Patio furniture at Costco

6. It's not tax time...yet

7. Women's History Month

8. The return of your sense of humor (Spring tends to bring smiles.)

9. Slashed prices on big TVs and 4K sets, according to CBS News

10. First choice of bathing suits at Target

11. Still time to get in shape before bathing suit season

30. Dogs that will go outside without begging, pleading, pushing, prodding, bribing, and doggie snowshoes
