  1. I want to see American Hustle and Dallas Buyers Club too, if I can't get any reading done maybe I can at least watch an Oscar nominated movie.

  2. I need to put my Spring list together. The going vegetarian for one week sounds like it would be good, but hard. That e-card is hilarious!

  3. Its time for another spending freeze already? I will probably join in again. I've done the vegetarian thing before and it's not bad for a few days or 1 week at a time. Definitely doable.

  4. OMG, nice weather yields good moods! I feel great today! My goal is to continue my exercise and good eating, not just because I will be the MOG in November, but forever, so I need no medication & can get myself to the bathroom, etc til I go to the other side. I have cut my sugar intake & that is so good for me. I want to be more active cleaning and caring for the outside and planting a wonderful herb garden even tho I do not like dirt or worms. So happy my favorite season, summer, is just around the corner, along with the May 1st pool opening! Yay! Everyone have a great day. Loved having you kids over for a short and sweet dinner and visit! Love your MOMMA

  5. I need to set some spring goals for myself too! I think number one would be working out, I've fallen out of it SO badly and I know I'm going to regret it as soon as I try to put a bikini on!

  6. I need to think about the freeze in April. I have a trip at the end of the month but maybe I should participate otherwise. Things got a little loose this month in the wallet department!

  7. i've always wanted to try to go vegetarian for a bit! maybe i should pick that up!

  8. Oooooh! Cleaning up pinterest boards is such a good one! There are so many pins that I've tried and didn't like and need to erase before I get tricked into them again!! I also love that you have watching a show on your goal list. A girl after my own heart!

  9. It snowed again last night, so at this rate, I might get shit planted in July. I NEED to clean up my Pinterest boards badly. I wish there was a way to move things around without repinning them and having them show up in my feed. They really need a drag and drop function.

  10. I've been trying to clean up my pinterest boards. Such a losing battle.
    I need to dig out/sort out my spring clothes. That's on the list for this weekend even though it's only going to be in the 40s next week.

  11. I just went over my winter goals today, I will have my spring goals up next week. I realized I need to get on this shit! I missed a few that will have to carry over and your damn spending freeze is one of them. Though, I am trying to decorate my house...so it probably won't happen! For shame Nadine, for shame!!!!!

    Have you planted herbs before? I want to start a little garden but have never done it and I think herbs would be a good start. My sister is a damn gardening genius and you would think the green thumb runs in the family, but no. That bitch got all the good genes!

    Cleaning up my Pinterest board needs to be on my goal list. Dear goodness, what a disaster some of those pins are! The links go no where, multiples of the same pin all over the place. So that needs to happen.

    You can come visit Alabama this weekend, it is supposed to be in the 70's :) BUT we already have pollen too. Freakin' allergies!

  12. Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska were both fantastic movies. I highly recommend both.

    I need to clean up my Pinterest boards badly. I started doing it a little bit the other day. So overwhelming.

    I could go for another spending freeze. I'm also considering going back to being a vegetarian. I did it for 5 years. Shouldn't be too difficult to do it again.

  13. Happy 1st day of spring!

    I could use a spring cleaning on my Pinterest boards as well :-P

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love that ecard! I really need to organize my pinterest....everything is under one recipe folder and yeah that isn't really working anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  15. CLEAN! I feel like this winter I just was a lazy bear and accumulated dust and garbage!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am in for the April spend freeze! It's mine and John's anniversary and Hawkeye's birthday month, but those things are already on my credit so hahaha April I can beat you. I love all the cleaning/purging items on your list. Woo!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have a friend that went veggie for lent and he's so ready to eat meat again, lol! I should definitely make a spring goal list! Trying to decide if I should do the Spending Freeze with you!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love that veggie week thing but my husband would hate it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can't wait for it to warm up so I can plant some flowers, too! I've never done it before and our balcony is so blah. I just want to make it a happy sunshiney place this year! :)
    I might try the spending freeze. I'm trying really hard to get better at paying things off so it's probably just the push I need. Plus, it's always nice to have other people doing it at the same time for support!

  20. I want to see That Awkward Moment too, love me some Zac Efron.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Good luck with the goals! I still really want to see That Awkward Moment.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Good luck with your goals! I might do the spending freeze again. Hopefully it will go better than January, which started well. But I think that was mostly due to being snowed in. We'll see! What's The Barnes- a family?

  23. Spring cleaning is a must in the DeFusco household. The back and forth weather has the fuzzier shedding like mad, and everything is covered in 10lbs of fur. Exercise is also a must, and I'd like for Steve and I to try 2 new restaraunts in the city. (Not in April) I'm going to attempt a health activist April blog challenge.

    Good luck with everything! :-)

  24. I think I want to try the spending freeze. Can I set aside a budget for certain things? Are there rules that need to be followed? I feel overwhelmed by the idea of not spending money... which probably means I need to try one of these things.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Plan, ready and plant a beautiful vegetable garden! Like your choices too.

    1. Great goal, Peggy. That would be on my list if I had more yard in the sun!

      Delete
  26. This is a great list! Like you, I would like to go vegetarian for a week. My goal this spring is to increase my weight lifting weight after working with my trainer this month. I would love to become sugar free. And I would like to walk at least 15 miles per week. Thanks for the nudge to think about this. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yay for exercising and trying vegetarianism!

    For now, I want to run a 10 k and read Allegiant! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. These are great goals! Best of luck!

  29. Going vegetarian isn't that bad! I thought it was kind of fun and want to do it again but got vetoed by he who cooks the meals. Oh well. I can always just do it for lunches! I need to purge clothes, too. There should be a big blogger spring clothes purging swap, though I guess that kind of defeats the purpose...

    ReplyDelete
  30. HAHAHA (below comments) "I SAID GOOD DAY". I say that wayyyy too often.

    Anyway, I just saw American Hustle and really liked it. Brilliant actors in my opinion. I can't wait to see August: Osage County.

  31. I love the Wire!!!! All 5 seasons were amazing!! Great Spring list...I just watched 12 years a Slave, and Blue Jasmine, next Dallas Buyers Club!

    1. I've heard The Wire is the best show ever. I can't wait to watch it.

  32. I've never heard of "Bark for Life," so I looked it up and there is one in my area! I LOVE the idea - my grandma really benefited from therapy dogs in the end. I'm working on my spring goals now. Overall goal? To make a list of goals that are obtainable! I have a bad habit of listing every single thing I want to change.

  33. Oh man, what a fantastic list! I've been reading blogs on my phone a lot lately, but I'm holding off on clicking this post because I knew I would want to comment and I hate trying to type comments on my phone. We have finally gotten some decent weather and I really want to get outside and get some hausfrau-y stuff done (clean out the garden & plant spring seeds, etc.) I went vegetarian for Lent one year and it was a good experience -- I think any kind of change in eating habits like that really mixes up your routine and helps you learn to try new things.
    I will be joining you in the spending freeze! I need to check out the rules again...
