Spring Bucket List

I'm not going to lie, I was typing this bucket list a couple weeks ago back when there was still snow on the ground. I needed something to look forward to and now it's finally acceptable to talk about my favorite time of year! This list was easy to make. Lots of the things on here are things we aim for every year and some are new things I hope to do as the temperatures keep rising. Spring is the BEST time of year, hands down.

Visit our local bike trail. There is an amazing bike path that Jared and I have never done together. We've been using the excuse of not having our own bikes not to go, but I'm ready to just rent them for the day and go for it!

Take a local tour. My sister got us gift certificates for Christmas to do an awesome themed tour of our city, but we've been waiting for some warmer weather to schedule it. There are 8 or so different tours to choose from and they all sound great. Looking forward to getting that on the calendar very soon.

Landscaping.  Jared and I are ready to amp up our home's curb appeal and can't wait to tackle our yard together on a weekend soon. Let's just put it this way, we have neglected our yard a lot since we've lived here. It's just never been high up on the priority list, but now we are really eager to make it an inviting space where we want to hang out on the nice evenings that are sure to come.

See a movie at the drive-in. There is a drive-in within just a few miles of our house and Jared and I have never seen a movie there together. That needs to change this Spring as soon as they open.

Celebrate my birthday. Yes, I'm selfish and it's not for another few weeks ;) But if you've been here any amount of time, you know I get really into birthdays and not just my own. I love a reason to celebrate and hope to spend my birthday with all my favorite people.
My birthday last year- man, that Punta Cana tan was nice!



Watch softball. Okay, that might not sound that fun- but watching Jared play "old man" softball really is a good time. His work always has a league and they'll be starting up soon.

Play some tennis. I really want to be more active this Spring and Summer... enjoying the outdoors in any way I can. We have tennis rackets/balls in our garage that need dusted off and used!

What's on your to-do list this Spring?

  5. LOVE your bucket list!! I love the idea of renting bikes and hitting the trail for a day! I didn't even know you could do that!
    We went to a drive in a couple times when we still had our truck and it was SO fun to cuddle up in the bed of the truck and watch the movie! You'll love doing the drive in!
    So- is this the birthday that you're finally going to soak up a spa day?! Because girl, you deserve it!!

  7. YES to the drive - in! I try to get to our 'local' (40 minutes away) one at least a couple times during the Spring/Summer. The themed tour of your city sounds so fun - can't wait to hear about it!

  8. Oh a drive-in would be so much fun! I don't know of any around us but maybe I can find one not too far away! Bike trails sound like a blast too!

  12. Fun list, lady! Hooray for birthday month, I can't wait for April, either!

    I've never been to a drive-in, I really want to though.

  13. You guys still have drive-in?! I'm so jealous! I loved going to the drive-in when I was a wee young one.

  14. I love your list!!! I am going to try my hand at gardening this year and I cant wait to get started!!! Taking a step up from just the usual cutting grass and hedging.

  15. I went to the drive ins all the time growing up, I don't think there is one near us so I guess I'm gonna have to come and visit you to go to the drive ins! and yay birthdays! i love celebrating all the birthdays lol

  16. Yes! I've been torn on whether or not to make a spring bucket list (because I did so horribly on my winter one!), but I think you've convinced me. I love these ideas! What type of tour are you leaning toward? I always want to do those, but they're expensive! The drive-in is just the best time. Wheat and I have been a few times and we always stay for a triple feature!

  17. I can't wait to hear what tour you choose! Last time I was up there I saw people doing the peddle cart tour thing and I saw the Duck Tour!! I didn't get to do either but I definitely want to the next time I'm back up there, they look like so much fun. Minus the annoying duck call things they give you. Which would probably actually be fun if you were the one making the call LOL!

  18. yay for drive-in movies!!! So fun. I definitely hope you make it to one. We saw back to the future last summer at a drive in and it was a blast.

  19. Love your list! Landscaping is on mine as well, but I'm terrible at gardening, so we'll see how it goes!

  21. Yay birthdays! I'm all about the celebrating. And getting out to play tennis! Definitely on our list too. Also looking forward to hearing what tour you do - a walking tour of Cincinnati is on my list, and I've got to cross that off before the end of June!

  22. What a fun way to spend the season! I love celebrating each season with a small bucket list, too! Makes for a fun way to usher in the change of time.

  23. I just hope it eventually warms up enough to do anything outdoors this spring! (I'm only half kidding. Seriously, Mother Nature, get on it!) It sounds like you guys have an active spring ahead of you!
