20 Things I Look Forward To Doing This Spring

One of these days Spring will actually make it's way to the East coast and I can't wait!  As much as I adore Winter, like most people, I'm over it for this year.  Here are some of the things I can't wait to do {in no particular order}:

  1. Eat tons of stale peeps.  Why stale you ask?  Well, my husband and his sister have taught me that peeps taste a LOT better when they have aged a bit.  Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  Yummmmm!
  2. Dye Easter eggs
  3. Shop at the farmer's markets
  4. eat freshly picked asparagus, fiddleheads and morels {including an amazing frittata that incorporates all 3!}
  5. Prep and plant the garden
  6. Cook dinners on the grill
  7. Make rhubarb cobbler, jam and bread
  8. Take the dogs walking in the park
  9. Dig out my flip-flops
  10. Watch my daffodils slowly awaken
  11. Make 2 spring wreaths for my front doors
  12. Make the switch to iced coffee
  13. Plant an herb garden {they are currently in the regular garden but will be getting their own space this year!}
  14. Going outdoors without a jacket {and gloves, and scarf....}
  15. Spring cleaning
  16. Opening windows to bring fresh air into the house
  17. Having our toilet work correctly.  Hooray!!  {we found out thru the cold of this winter we need insulation around the pipe going to the septic tank and a larger vent}
  18. Watching the flowering trees bloom
  19. Rock this shirt
  20. Eat strawberries.  A LOT of strawberries.
What about you?  What do you look forward to doing this Spring?

Oh, I love Morel mushrooms! I grew up in KS and we hunted them up in the springtime, wow, what good memories! Thank you. And spring is definitely here in Reno, everything is in bloom, including my allergies.

I agree with you on so many points! I will have to look to see if you have the frittata recipe on here :) I have never tried a fiddlehead, since I am not yet sure what they are. I do enjoy picking "Ramps" in the spring. Do you get those also?

P.S. I thought my new husband was the only person to enjoy a stale peep. So relieved to here there are more like him out there :)

Staci, my husband and I are planning to move from Texas where it is too hot to grow much. We are looking for an area with lots of farmers markets and local available food. Wondering if you have any recommendations of general areas? We've been road tripping in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina. Hubs wants low tax area, I want plenty of water resources. Any thoughts you might want to share would be appreciated. Will be watching to see if you post anything as I know your time is precious and would be a waste for one person, but thought others might enjoy your ideas in this area.
