Spring Break 2015 {Goals & Plans}

Hi there friend!  Today is Day 2 of no work for me!  I must admit that it feels WONDERFUL!  I love having the freedom to see where the day may take us.  Today, it took us to Cloud 9 trampoline park in Chesapeake.


We made the short drive over to be there for our “flight time” at 9.  Let me tell you that jumping around at a trampoline park is a work-out!  The first visit found me wearing a cute outfit.  Not so this time!  I did a quick shower after hitting the gym this morning, and we were off in work-out style wear again!  Holden had a blast jumping into the foam pits, throwing the soft balls all around {some at me!}, and just jump, jump, jumping!  There are baseball goals, a rock wall, trapeze swing, foam pits, balance beam, tire swing…you name it!  For $8, an adult plus one kid bounces for an hour.  This is the 6 and under hour Monday – Friday from 9-10.  Highly recommend this place!  We played for our hour of time and then visited a Ross store over in Chesapeake that was close to Cloud 9.  I found some sandals to replace my very worn out brown gladiator sandals, organization bins for our pantry, undies {I just hate spending money on these items!  Shouldn’t undies and toilet paper just be free!?!?!}, and sheets.  I have some buyer’s remorse about my sandals as they weren’t EXACTLY what I wanted.  However, they were pretty close, and they were $14.99.  Can’t really beat that!  I check Target and Wal-Mart’s sites for better style and/or price AND nothing.  I don’t really take the time to shop too much these days, so I knew if I didn’t get the shoes that I’d be in a style pickle once work starts up again.

After a quick stop at the grocery store for salad bars salads and fruits plus a California roll to split, we enjoyed lunch on the deck with the Mr.  Ah, spring break!  I’m greatly aware that the days are ticking away so quickly, so I thought it would be a good idea to focus in on what else I’d like to do this break.


  • Pay bills 😦
  • Register for swimming lessons for H
  • Return to Gymboree & Old Navy
  • Wash and vacuum car
  • Move rocks from front flower bed to backyard
  • Clean house
  • Pick up new watch band for the Mr. from Fossil {the man is hard on his stuff!}
  • Grocery shop
  • Make chicken salad
  • Bag up any and all things I can get my hands on to take to Goodwill
  • Hair cut for H {I can’t believe he’s ready for one again!}


  • Work-out every day – I’m planning runs on Wed., Fri., and Sat.  I’m also planning a yoga DVD on Wed. and gym work-out on Thurs.  {Yes, I include this in “fun.”}.
  • Play date for H {waiting to see what friend of H can do this one!}
  • Visit Color Me Mine or perhaps the trampoline park again
  • Park Visit
  • Visiting Auntie Brookie and all the fun that entails!
  • Walking Roscoe the Doggie-doo every day
  • Journaling daily
  • continuing to read American Wife {just started last night}
  • Invite neighbors over for dinner {This one is easy!   It would be for the following week or weekend!}

Now, I realize this is WAY TOO MUCH to accomplish on what remains of my break.  However, I think making lists and such really helps you focus on what you want to do/have to do and helps you use your time wisely.

How do you feel about list making?

I think some people find it too constraining, but I definitely find it soothing.
