5. Freehand a new smoothie recipe.

6. Buy some cheap flowers and dress them up. Like this.

15. Go on a breakfast date. Dinner dates are cool, but have you ever tasted pancakes?

16. Pick something you don't like about your life and change it.

17. Deep clean one room in your house. Spring cleaning!

18. Start a new series on Netflix.

19. Go through all your pens/sharpies/writing utensils and throw out the ones that don't work. Then buy new, prettier pens.

20. Go for a walk every day for a week. Soak up that spring weather.

21. Bake homemade cookies.

22. Go through your computer and delete old files. 

23. Make mimosas with something other than orange juice!

24. Clean out your car.

25. Start making a summer bucket-list. 

26. Make a dinner with no meat. Eat your veggies!

27. Make pizza at home. With extra meat, to make up for the meatless dinner.

28. Throw out any chipped/cracked/broken dishes that your holding onto just because. 

29. Try your hand at overnight oats. Anything to save time in the morning!

30. Have a picnic in the park.
