Spring To-Do List




 +clean out my closet (and donate items I barely wore last year!)
this is a must for me...no more trying to fit clothes into our guest bedrooms. sigh.

+take Rocky to the dog parks in our area/walk him at the park as much as we can
we actually took him this past weekend and he was so happy. We let him go in with the big dogs (since he thinks he is one..) and we could tell he really enjoyed it.

+go to the Pint Room with Billy
lately, we have been really good about trying new restaurants/places in Columbus. I want to continue doing this and the pint room is on our list!

+grill out / eat dinner outside on our deck


+start going to the farmers market
 my favorite part of summer-but I want to go at least once in the spring.

+organize my Pinterest boards
random but it's gotta happen...

+eat outside at our favorite brunch place (or any restaurant), Sweet Clove Sunshine Cafe.
sweet clove is our favorite weekend treat and they have a cute patio on the front that I want to sit at from this point forward...no more eating inside, like we did this past Saturday. I want to get out and enjoy the weather.


+try a couple new vegetarian recipes

+keep inexpensive flowers, like tullips, in our mason jar holder in our kitchen
tullips just make me happy and brighten up any space!



+run outside when I can vs. at the gym

+organize our storage area in the back of our basement 
this makes me cringe somewhat. It needs to be done.

+try to keep schedule open for summer weekends at the lake!



Normally, I'd add 'put together manly Easter basket for Billy', but we will actually be out of town for Easter so we aren't exchanging baskets this year, like we did last year. I did want to still share the post from last year with the basket I made Billy because it is my top viewed post ever (so funny, right?) and just in case you want to make your boyfriend/spouse a fun Easter basket! I never thought this would be the post with the most page views!

 

(refusing to acknowledge the white flakes currently residing on our roads and ground today means that it is leaving ASAP and not coming back until next December. It is spring. It is spring...)

What would you like to accomplish this spring?

...still loving this lovely signature of mine from the lovely Sarah.

  1. Awesome ideas! We still have tons of snow here in Wisconsin, I'm hoping the "39" degree days this week will do SOME melting! And I am with you on cleaning out the closet. That's my goal this week and I'm hoping to start putting away some of those sweaters!

  2. These are great goals for spring! I am finishing up my fitness goals for March and need to wok up a list similar to yours for the rest of spring. Love how you said eat outside on the deck and run outdoors vs gym. I need those in my life too and def need to gut my closet, geez! Good luck with your goals and the Manly Easter basket is just perfect!

  4. Love your deck! I also plan on sorting my closet/clothing and donating stuff. I had a box of winter clothing that did not even get unpacked this season which means the entire box is getting donated!

  6. I'm so excited for SPRING and so over Ohio's snow!!! Sounds like a great to-do list that's very similar to mine! I loved your Easter basket that you made him last year! I can see why it's the top viewed post!

  7. You should have a blog sale of some of your clothes! You can earn some extra cash, and your readers like me can score on some cool stylish clothes for a little bit cheaper!! Please consider this! :) Any leftover items that don't sell can be donated then! I see it as a win win for everyone!

  10. Going through the closet is something I need to do, for sure! Even though it feels like I just did it...there's definitely stuff in there I'm not wearing! I am now really hungry for chocolate chip pancakes and an overwhelming desire to build a fantastic deck :)

  21. Very nice to-do list! I have a spring one for myself to and I thin Spring is the best time in Columbus!! Finally get to go outside!!! What dog park do you guys take Rocky too? I like to take Gunner to all of the different ones and I've found quite a few I really like, others...not so much lol. You'll have to let me know how Pint House is too, we've been passed it and wanted to try it out too!

  30. My spring to-do list includes renovating our upstairs bathrooms, throwing a kick-ass 30th birthday party, and lots of grilling out and drinks in our backyard (but that also means yard prep for the summer, uughh!).

    I am also super looking forward to the outdoor farmers markets - I go to the winter one in Worthington, but I'm still ready for lots of local produce again!

    Pint Room has really yummy burgers and a GREAT beer selection, you should definitely check it out soon! It's been pretty crowded both times we've been and the wood floors and ceilings make it loud, but it's still worth it.
