surfing {via}
bike rides on the beach
Taco Tuesdays

Now that it's officially Spring, I'm making a list of all the warm weather activities I'm excited to do.  I love this time of year for the sunshine, longer days, and warm temperatures but I also enjoy the overall lighthearted feeling that comes with the upcoming months.  Here are a few of the things I'm anticipating this Spring.  What are you looking forward to this season?

long bike rides on the beach
outdoor concerts on the Santa Monica Pier
movies on the deck (at Santa Monica Place)
beach days
Abbot Kinney First Fridays
Taco Tuesdays
forgoing blow dries and dealing with "beach hair"
sun dresses and sandals
eating dinner outside
picnics at the beach
a tropical vacation

That's a great list! Although "beach hair" and sundresses aren't on my list, they all sound awesome! and I'm really ready for that tropical vacation!

It sounds like you're going to have a FABULOUS spring, Valerie -- which is of course not surprising. Those movies sound like a blast and I'm so jealous of your beach bike rides. I'm looking forward to bright pedicures, wedges, and sitting out by the pool with the nanny kids.

Sounds like a fabulous Spring. Concert season and al fresco dining are at the top of my list to be excited for.

Ah, I adore spring and summer too. Beach hair sounds delightful as are the other fanciable things on your list;-)

I am making it a point this year to do at least on Santa Monica Pier concert and go to Abbot Kinney First Fridays at least once - never done either!

How nice is our weather today? :)
