Spring Bucket List

Although I am definitely the kind of person who loves to plan things out, I typically don’t create bucket lists for things that I want to get done.  The first time I actually did one was this past Fall, and honestly, it was really great.  It wasn’t something that I went and looked at everyday by any means, but I think that by just typing up a list and putting it out there, it kind of sat in my subconscious and was a little reminder to me to go out and carpe diem!

So, I decided to get one going for Spring.  I know that it isn’t officially Spring just yet, but it’s definitely starting to feel like Spring around here.  So I figured, why not get an early start?  The early bird gets the worm, right?!?

  • Spend more time outside enjoying the Spring blooms (already been doing this one)
  • Make Irish Brown Bread for St. Patrick’s Day (completed in June)
  • Attend the Mariachi Festival (completed on March 13)
  • Celebrate St. Joseph’s Day with the Feast at our Church (completed on March 13)
  • Go on a Spring Break Trip (went to Florida with my family)
  • Have an Egg Fight as part of our Easter Tradition (completed March 26th)
  • Grow tomatoes from the seeds that I brought back from Italy (just started them, and I’m already seeing a little bit of green!)
  • Have a Picnic (completed in Yellowstone)
  • Fly a Kite
  • Play with Bubbles (completed in Yellowstone)
  • Have a Spring Cleaning Day (completed on March 7)
  • Recreate a scene from Singin’ in the Rain during our next rain shower (completed on March 26 during a rain storm in Florida)
  • Enjoy more Sunsets with the hubby
  • Go Fruit Picking (did a little on March 17 – moonlit nespoli picking)
  • Drive out to the Desert to see the Wildflowers (not completed, but unfortunately missed the window of peak flowers this year)
  • Plan a “shop till we drop” day to get ready for all of our traveling (completed on March 11)
  • Go play Bocce and enjoy some Fried Chicken at the Crack Shack (completed in Palm Springs)
  • Haul our Beach Cruisers over to Coronado for the Low Tide Ride & Stride
  • Experience a Grunion Run (somewhat completed – randomly say a Grunion on the beach during an early morning run)
  • Go out for Taco Tuesday at this famous eatery and then enjoy a beach walk

Do you have any fun plans for Spring?  Just thinking about the change of season gets me so excited!  I can’t wait to get out there and chip away at my list!
