Spring To-Do List

I love the changing of the seasons. So much anticipation for the first snow, the first 50 degree day, the Summer Solstice and the first leaves changing colors. It's a rainy day here, but it's supposed to be in the 60's and that means Spring has finally arrived. I didn't take the snowstorm last Friday too well, so I'm a little late posting this. 

1. See the Cherry Blossoms in Prospect Park.

2. Complete the rest of our NY City Walks. We'll be heading to Harlem, Brooklyn and Downtown for our upcoming Sunday Strolls.

3. Go to the Orchid Show at the NYBG (if anyone is interested, we are members and I have guest passes and I'm happy to share them.)

4. A quick Canada trip with J to Montreal. 

5. See the NY Mets play at Citi Field.

6. Enjoy a quick weekend trip back in the Twin Cities for a wedding and some family time. OK let's be real, the number one thing on my list is a good Midwest Bloody Mary.

7. Rent bikes and circle the island of Manhattan - or at least as much of it as my legs can handle.

8. Finish updating some pages on my blog and spring cleaning our apartment. 

9. Turn 30. Thanks to my 30 before 30 list, this feels like an accomplishment. Just need to wrap up a few more things.

10. And most importantly, go to Iceland. Obviously this is the highlight of this entire year.

What is on your list for the Spring? 


  1. This is pretty much the best list ever- topped off with your amazing trip to Ireland at the end!

  2. So excited for your Iceland trip. Our good friends head there this week (or next?). It's definitely on my list.

    I like the opportunity to spend so much more time outside in the spring.

  3. What a great list! I cannot get over the Iceland trip- you are going to have the BEST time ever! :) I'm so ready for some warmer weather and baseball games and DUH, birthday celebrations!!!

  4. ICELAND! How cool! That whole "bike share" thing is coming to Atlanta + I cannot wait to borrow bikes this summer!

  5. You did a lot of great things before you turned 30. I wish I had your motivation! Haha. I always love reading your posts. You're so inspirational!

  6. Love this. Will be doing a list as well!

  7. When the weather finally turns nice here in NYC there is so much to do! My spring will be spent tranig and getting back in shape to run another Mudder for charity. Time to hit the road and start running.

    Believe it or not we have never been to the NYBG!

  8. LOL, I know I say this every time I comment, but seeing how much you and J have embraced life in the city makes me so happy. I've been a Philly/NJ girl practically my entire life, and there is SOOO much I haven't done. So stoked for your Iceland trip, that's definitely on my list of places to see. Let me know when you gyus are going to the Orchid Show. It'd be fun to meet!

  9. I'm so glad somebody understands that nobody does a good bloody mary like the midwest. I'm always so disappointed when I order them in other cities. We just know how to do them right.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
