Five on Friday

Yay we made it to Friday, everyone! I actually don't live for the weekend, but it definitely is a little bit nicer when it does roll around.

I know we have all been complaining about this winter weather that just won't seem to go away, but today it's supposed to get up to 70* and I think the cold weather might be gone for good after this. I'm feeling inspired about all the fun spring and summer things I want to do with my husband over the next few months. Here are five of them!

1. Go to our farmers market and make dinner with what we buy. We have one every Saturday in the warm months and it's small, but it's enough. We walk by it a lot but rarely ever stop or buy anything. I thought it would be fun to make it into a day date.

2. Go to a baseball game. We have a local Triple-A team and try to hit up at least a couple games. Or who knows, maybe we'll get a little crazy and make a mini trip to DC or Baltimore for a real baseball game. Only problem then would be deciding whose team to go see. Road trip, anyone?

3. Beach dates! Is there anything better than spending a day soaking up rays and listening to waves crash? I think not.

4. Go on a walking tour of our city. We live in the historic district of our city and there is a great self-guided walking tour that we've never done in the 4 years we've lived here. I see the plaques all the time but never stop to read them. We even lived in a building on the tour for a year!

5. Tour a local winery. This is on my 30 Before 30 list. How fun would it be to check it off this spring/summer?!

I can't wait to actually start doing some of these things!


  1. we also have a local market right down the street from us and this summer, i am going to go! besides, locally grown produce is way better, amirite?!

    Vodka and Soda

  2. I love that idea for a fun day date at the Farmer's Market!

    While it's not a local winery, if you come see a nationals game, you should come to Peter's winery afterwards! It's only 25 minutes outside of the city and really pretty!

  3. I love going to the Farmer's Market and playing my own (less gross) version of Chopped with all the ingredients I buy!

  4. Hi Tracy! I love all of your summer ideas and especially the farmer's market one. I always come away from a farmer's market with at least some fresh berries!

  5. Cooking from fresh farmer's market food is such an awesome idea! I'm so ready for jusy doesn't seem to be getting that much warmer here :-/

    Have a great wknd!!

  6. Those all sound like amazing ideas especially winery tours!

  7. Your city looks so cute!! I love walking around historic parts of town, I need to add that to my "Spring bucket list"!!

  8. So jealous that you can have beach dates!!
    I went on a winery tour last summer and it was a BLAST! We went for a girlfriend's bachelorette party... something fun and different than the usual!

  9. I want to do all of this! Can't wait for baseball season and beach weather to return :)
