spring bucket list

 A little flashback to warm weather, tiny baby and a little mo hawk :) Mommy and me head wraps c/o Sew Much Baby
1- Buy a new pack (the huge, serious baby packing packs... any recommendations?), renew my National Parks pass and hike, hike, hike as much as possible! I have been having major hiking with drawls and I'm dying to get back into it! Mia and I went on so many adventures last year and it was the BEST!

2- Speaking of hiking.... Hike Angels Landing in Zion National Park with my dad (and hopefully Eric) before it gets too hot! This one definitely belongs on the spring bucket list, not summer!

3- Buy a kiddie pool to put in our backyard. We had an unseasonably warm winter so maybe it will be warm enough for Mia to play in the pool this spring? If not, we will have it ready when summer hits!

4- Get crafty with friends. Because a craft day is just way better with girlfriends and our littles!

5- Go visit my Grandma in Colorado. I'd love to do this with my little family, but Mia and I may have to leave Eric behind. She's 98 and her health is definitely declining. I would really love to get one last visit in. It makes her world to see Mia :)

6- Stop spending money on clothes. And when I say clothes, I'm talking about clothes for Mia. Let's be real, I rarely shop for myself. Everything is SO much cuter Mia sized. But she doesn't need as much as she's got. So my goal for spring is to only buy the necessities and snag bigger sizes ONLY when it's a killer deal. And the money I would have spent on clothes? Put it in the beach fund because I need a trip to the beach!

7- Go to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. There is a slim chance that we will be able to make this work. But I'd love to make it a goal for this year or next. It would be SO fun to take Mia!!

8- De-junk my house. Get rid of crap from every. single. room. I didn't ever hit the "nesting" stage of pregnancy. And I never get the urge to "spring clean" my home. Maybe I can blame that on living in rentals and when we do own a home one day, I'll be singing a different tune? I don't know. But from what I "hear", spring time is the best time to get in and clean out the house :)

I am totally looking forward to spring! Last year's warm weather holds the fondest memories for me!! I can't wait to have more adventures with my little bestie! What's on your bucket list for spring? I might snag a couple of your ideas and add them to my list :)

As someone who lost her 97 year old grandmother a few months ago - you totally should take Mia to visit your grandmother. :) When they start declining, I feel like it goes fast. Take pictures, too. XOXO

Best baby backpack is the Osprey Poco carrier! We are obsessed with ours, it has a sunshade, a rain cover, so many compartments. Ugh we just love it. It is kind of pricey, but totally worth it. We have used it all through this crazy winter in AK and can't wait to hike with it this summer!

Pamela said...

Tulip festival sounds so nice!! I need to de-junk our home too!! It's crazy how much crap you can accumulate!!!

Jessie said...

Love this! I can't wait to hike either. You can totally take Mia along this summer like the awesome Amazon woman you are. Our baby backpack was given to us and we love it. Look for a nice wide adjustable band that goes around your hips and takes much of the weight off your shoulders and I don't think you'll go wrong.

Sarah said...

OH I want to hike Angel's Landing too! I've heard only great things about it...on my list for one day. And I'll join your craft day! I need one of those days, badly. And when you own a house, I am the same way, I don't de-clutter, and then when I can't possible stand it I go in hurricane mode and get rid of move everything around. Case in point, my son's toys recently, it was getting ridiculous!

Ech and Will said...

I love your list, it sounds like you're going to have a really fun spring.

Alyx said...

I have been working on de-junking and I have to say, I miss the days where we moved every 6-12 months, because far less junk accumulated then.

Side note... I love those mommy and me head wraps! I might just have to get some for Elsie and myself! :)

Lauren W said...

Love your matching headbands. They're so cute! :)

I need to make a spring-to-do list... I love organizing, so spring cleaning should be a problem!

Elizabeth said...

Yay for Spring! :) Your and Mia's headbands are so cute! :)

Love Always,
Elizabeth

McKenzie Papenfuss said...

Nichole @ casadecrews.com said...

Great list! I need to make a spring list!

Annette said...

My bucket list looks very similar - hiking, spring cleaning, attending the Daffodil festival (where I'm from)... Best wishes to you on accomplishing each goal--you can do it :) Enjoy, and happy spring!

Kirsty and Seth said...
