Five Random Things to Look Forward to This Spring
A part of me wishes we could rush through spring and get to the month of June stat (I detest winter and should have been born in Southern California or should live there now and stop my whining every year the cold weather starts up). I know the stinking hot dog days of summer are still 3 to 4 months away so I’ll take spring in the interim. Here are a few random things that I’m looking forward to this spring…
Massachusetts’ Spa Week (April 13 – 19)
With warmer weather comes more occasions to exposure your body parts and wear open-toed shoes (yay!). Time to re-fresh and slough off any memories of dull, pale winter skin. I’m planning on taking advantage of a $50 spa treatment at one of the salons on Newbury St. Check out www.spaweek.com for more info.
The availability of Cadbury Eggs…everywhere!
My grandmother still buys me 2 boxes of Cadbury Eggs every Easter as my gift. These limited-edition crème-filled chocolate eggs are delicious, so stock up before they’re gone.
The opening of Tia’s Restaurant/Bar at Marriott Long Wharf
Tia’s takes a hiatus for the winter but, right around mid-April, it re-opens with a vengeance and 20-something i-bankers start pouring in to sip Coronas and begin the search for their upcoming summer fling.
King of Leon concert at Boston University’s Agganis Arena on 4/18
This band is blowing up with catchy rock tunes like “Sex on Fire” and “Revelry.” Give ‘em a listen. It’s almost hard not to like them, no matter what type of music you’re into.
The opportunity to wear clothing from the cuter section of my walk-in closet
Goodbye wool socks and sweaters and long-sleeved boring cotton tees for layering! Hello floral dresses, brightly colored belts, cute skirts and light-weight cotton jackets!
