Spring Break At Home


Not going anywhere this spring break? No worries! There is still lots of fun to be had even if it means it's in cold temperatures. Typically, my family travels somewhere tropical for spring break, but one year we stayed put in Illinois. Here are some of the activities I did and recommend, even if the temperature is a little chilly and the skies are a little cloudy. 

1.) Go to a Cupcakery This was so fun. Who doesn't love trying out different cupcakes. Some friends and I drove to different bakeries in the suburbs that specialized strictly in cupcakes. It was such a great time with friends while eating delicious treats too! Sometime soon I would like to go hunting for macarons! 

2.) Movie Night Cuddling up with a movie marathon scheduled for the evening is a perfect way to spend a cold night. Whether it's watching my favorite childhood movies or simply watching Gossip Girl, a night in can be exactly what the break calls for.

3.) Go Downtown This may not be possible for everyone, but something I really enjoy doing is taking a day trip with friends to Chicago. It's a pretty easy commute for me, and I always find it fun to go to Sprinkles for a cupcake, check out a few favorite stores and, of course, take pictures. I am really looking forward to the new Vineyard Vines opening this spring, and definitely will be making my way downtown for that!

4.) Start a Great Book Anyone else find it hard to read a book of their choice during the hectic school year? Starting a book at the beginning spring break usually ensures I finish it by the end, and there are quite a few books on my to-read list I have been wanting to get to. 

5.) A Service Project What a great time to do a volunteer activity! Gather a few friends and head to your local Feed My Starving Children to pack meals or make a blanket for Project Linus while watching a movie. It's a perfect time to pay it forward when you have extra time on your hands. 

What do you plan on doing for spring break?
