2012 // Spring Bucket List


Spring has sprung around here, and even though we have a whole week before it’s official, I think it’s time to get scheming now.

Here’s some fun stuff I’m hoping to accomplish between now and the end of May.


Wine Country Picnic at least once
Host Brunch + Make a Fun Cocktail
Plan + Execute something fun for Garrett’s Birthday
Go to the theater
Win March Madness Pool
Invite friends over to make S’mores in the fire pit

Beauty + Style

Get my fake tan on
Wear a dress everyday for a week
Buy a new bathing suit
Buy some freaking colorful pants
Get a pedicure
Dye my hair (eep! haven’t done this in TEN YEARS)


Spend a long weekend in Portland
Day Trip to Tahoe
Day Trip to Sonoma
Day Trip to SF


Read 10 Books
Plant Garden
Buy a Hydrangea
Hang Art in the kitchen
Paint the office (or one GD room!)
Buy fresh flowers for the house more than once


Hit up the Carmichael Farmer’s Market
Make a Home Cured Corned Beef
Make Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes (and find someone to eat them)
Make 5 New Salads
Make Eggs Benedict for Easter
Hit up a You-Pick Berry Farm

  1. Great list! I’m going to post Sean and my list soon, it’s pretty silly. 🙂 All SF tourist stuff. haha

    P.S. LOVE the Carmichael Farmers Market!

    That’s an awesome Spring Bucket List! I would volunteer to eat the cupcakes for you, but my Spring Bucket List is all about losing weight – eating better and getting in shape.

    Something I LOVE about your blog – you always put in such great pictures! Do you take/create them all?

    • Holly says:

      Aw thanks! I do take them all unless or try to credit them when I don’t.

      This is just a tree hanging out in my backyard that I took a picture of on my lunch break yesterday. I just felt like spring had officially sprung when I noticed it!

  3. Mandy says:

    Can you bring your Irish Car Bomb cupcakes to Portland? Pretty Please? I’m sure the Six Degrees Crew can totally help you eat them AND you’ll be knocking out 2 goals in one fell swoop!

  4. Danielle says:

    you will get those toes to bar. they just… happen. 🙂

  5. Mary Hone says:

    Wow, that’s a lot of great things to do. My goal is to sell the house, and get on the road.

  6. Erica says:

    Love the brunch idea. Stealing.

  7. I am interested in kayaking (it’s my FAVE), trail running, a berry picking adventure, s’mores in your fire pit and that key lime business. Let’s make plans!

    I haven’t thought about Spring yet. I’m just trying to get through the busiest time for me at work. Come April, I’m all over Spring planning! I would definitely like to add some evening walks with Darcy when the weather gets better and the light stays longer. I can’t wait until I can open our windows without freezing!

    I always love and am inspired by your lists! Now, for March Madness do you actually know what you’re doing or do you just guess like I do? Jason’s usually in a pool and then we have a little side bet between just us and winner picks dinner and a movie 🙂

    P.S. I love hydrangeas (we had them in my wedding bouquet and in our table centerpieces – ugh not cheap). Are they difficult to grow?

    • Holly says:

      No idea what I’m doing…but I guess pretty well. I would like to go all the way this year! HAHAHA

      As for hydrangeas, I have zero experience with them…but why the heck not just start now and pretend I do? Fake it till you make it 🙂
