Spring: Goals & Plans

Happy SPRING, everyone! Ohio is kicking off the first day of Spring in perfect fashion- I woke up to a gentle rainstorm and rolling thunder this morning. I truly cannot believe it is March 20th already... time is going faster than it ever has and it's all I can do to hang on and enjoy the ride! In the past, I've blogged about monthly goals but I've fallen away from that habit. Steph hosts a seasonal goals link-up so I thought now was the perfect time to get back into some goal setting.

MOVE. Ha, this probably goes without saying but I figured it should still be on my list. Maybe since I put it at the top of my list it'll motivate me to realllly get packing and going on things. I have been slacking and closing date is coming quick.

CELEBRATE EASTER. I have mentioned a time or ten how much I love Easter so this is one I can't wait to check off. Jared and I are having fun collecting little things for T's basket and I have definitely gone overboard on Easter clothes, whoops! I'll be making some delicious items from my favorite holiday cookbook and hopefully spending time with lots of our family.

START PLANNING T's BIRTHDAY. My child turns 1 at the end of May (WHAT?) and I really haven't decided what I'd like to do to celebrate or when to have it. With the moving craziness we might be barely settled into our new home. Plus we want to accommodate for some out of town family and other busy schedules.

FINISH T's PHOTO BOOK. In relation to his first birthday (why do I have to keep reminding myself?!) I want to finish his first year photobook on/around his birthday. I've been working on it little by little but it's the toughest book I've ever tried to make. Since I take SO many pictures of him, it's hard to narrow it down because obviously they are ALL adorable ;)

GO TO A WORKOUT CLASS. I don't belong to any gym these days, but I'd like to try to get back into the swing of a weekly class somewhere- be it Zumba or Barre3. When I think about the times in my life I've been most fit/healthy it was always when I was a part of a structured workout with a group- I'm one of those people who needs it!

VISIT THE ZOO. Jared and I have been talking about taking T to the zoo all winter long and I'm hopeful we'll get a nice, free day sometime soon where we can. We'd like to buy a membership to the zoo for our family but we're still trying to determine if we'd go enough/get our money's worth. Either way, I need to see all the new zoo babies that are happening in Cincinnati. 

Also of note for Spring will be:
- Celebrating my 30th bday
-Celebrating my niece's 4th birthday when they are in town (yay!)
-Celebrating our 6th anniversary
-Going on a big family vacation

Sounds like we're going to have a busy, but fun Spring. What are you planning on doing this Spring?

  9. I cant believe T is going to be one!! What?? I am sure you will come up with the perfect birthday celebrations! Last night I made a joke to Zoe about the Easter bunny taking away presents when she cries and Chris was like mmm the Easter bunny only ever brought me candy. I told him he must have been a bad kid because I always got a spring wardrobe and some stuff to play with and very little candy. LOL

  10. I hate a straight gym schedule, but I also need a zumba class back in my life. Once or twice a week won't kill me.

  18. I'm so looking forward to those gentle thunderstorms, that some of my favorite weather!! I literally forgot that my birthday was next week until you said it's march 20th and I had to double take haha. As for the zoo membership, do it!! I never thought we'd use ours enough but my brother gifted the membership for Mav's first birthday and it really motivated us to go more often!! I'm so thankful they gifted him the same thing for his birthday this year so we have another summer of zoo trips planned already :)
