Yesterday was the first day of spring and at recess (because I’m a teacher), I wore my puffy winter coat, gloves, scarf, and hat and was still completely freezing. It’s no wonder I’ve been spending way too much of my life daydreaming about all of the things I want to do right now that seem to be slightly delayed. But even though Mother Nature is not cooperating, it doesn’t stop me from envisioning all fabulous spring things yet to come. And since that’s where my mind is, that’s what I’m writing about... the top things I’m awaiting with excited anticipation.
[ONE.] Summer nails and my first pedi of the season. I typically do my own nails but I am just dying to whip out the summer colors. I have already been experimenting with some more upbeat shades of pink, but I’ll know it’s officially summer when I can apply neon with confidence.
[TWO.] Shopping for my new 2014 suits. I know I have way too many already, but seriously a new swimsuit brings me way too much happiness to pass up. Plus, the more cheekies I get, the less I want to wear my old suits, so I gotta recycle and make room for more.

[THREE.] Outdoor happy hours. It’s amazing how one’s energy level can instantly quadruple at the mention of cocktails on a sun soaked patio. And between my homes in Baltimore and Frederick, there are no shortage of these. OHH might be my #1 happy place. I cannot wait!
[FOUR]. Summer nights at the Yard. And by this I mean Camden Yards. There’s nothing like letting loose at a game with your best friends. Hot dogs, beer, and baseball pants... who could wish for more?
[FIVE.] Recharging my desire to act like a gym bunny. I try not to fall off the wagon too much during winter, but there’s definitely something about sun and warmth that truly kicks my workout into gear. I think it has something to do with the fact that I don’t have to dress in layers that makes me feel more ready to work out. Plus, there’s a better supply of delicious produce available, so healthy eating seems much more appealing.

Stay positive. Look forward. Summer is coming!
