Spring 2015 – A Bucket List

How great is this SUCK IT MONDAY glitter batter from The Bannerie?!  I love it and she has a ton of other fun ones, you can check her out on Etsy here.

Now to the point of this post:

Do you ever feel like you’ve gotten in a rut and have stopped living life?

Get up, go to work, come home, walk the dog, make dinner, watch TV, go to bed…

… repeat… repeat… repeat… infinity

That’s how I’ve been feeling lately, like I’m living to work instead of working to live, and that’s no fun at all!  It’s pretty soul-sucking, actually.  In an effort to remind myself to get out there and experience life, I’m putting together a Spring bucket list!  My last bucket list didn’t go so well, but maybe if I break it down by season it’ll be more manageable and realistic and feel inspiring instead of overwhelming.

Apparently the first day of Spring was March 20th so I’m a little behind, but I figure I can still get some good stuff in between now and the start of Summer.  I can already cross off most of #1 because we did it this weekend and as soon as I pair down the 220 photos I took I’ll write up a post about it.

Here we go…

Spring 2015: March 20 – June 19

  1. Long Beach, WA – stay at Adrift Hotel, eat at [pickled fish], check out Cape Disappointment State Park and the North Head Lighthouse.  DONE!
  2. Tulip Fest 2015 at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, OR – going on through May 3rd.
  3. Take the Oregon Olive Mill tour at Red Ridge Farms.
  4. Take Archery lessons!  Mr. Won’t Run and I both think this would be fun, gotta prepare for the apocalypse, you know.  I’ve found info from Trackers Earth, Archers Afield, and PDX Archery, but please let me know if you’ve got a lead on a good place!
  5. Do some hiking at Smith Rock State Park before it gets too sweltering hot in the Summer.  Mr. Won’t Run believes there’s no reason to go there unless you plan to climb, but since I’ve only done an indoor rock wall or two (and that was years ago), I’m a little nervous to jump into the real thing, but I do think it would be fun if I got into it (and he got back into it) and we could do it together.  If you know of any good places out there for lessons, let me know!  Smith Rock Climbing School?
  6. Cross off at least one of these 5 Under The Radar Waterfalls in Oregon.

I think that’s a good start, don’t you?

What’s on your Spring to-do list this year?
