You Know It’s Spring When…

April 20, 2012

You suddenly notice these are everywhere.

I think “these” go by the name of flowers.

Your boyfriend’s allergies are making his throat have “that tickle.”  And “that tickle” is causing him make super annoying noises that keep you awake till all hours of the night.

For the record, no, I don’t know what “that tickle” is.  So I don’t’ sympathize.

Also for the record, “all hours of the night” probably means 10:45.  I’m a real night owl.

You’re looking forward to things like the Bolder Boulder.

Or, more accurately, you’re looking forward to the silly costumes, slip and slides and marshmallows that accompany the Bolder Boulder.  You’re not so much looking forward to the 6.2 miles that constitute the Bolder Boulder.

You feel compelled to eat “bright fresh Spring things.”

Like fish, fresh herbs and anything lemony.

You know, because I totally wasn’t eating those things during winter too…

For the first time in what feels like years, it’s light outside long enough to go for a post-work run.

You have to check the forecast right before getting dressed in the morning because even though it was 70 degrees yesterday, it could be snowing today.

Or is that just a Colorado thing?

You wake up wanting a hot cup of tea and drive home from work craving iced coffee.

You crave froyo even more than you did in winter.

I didn’t even know that was possible.

P.S. What kind of psycho craves cold things in winter??  This kind.

You just want to wear skirts.

You’re saying hello to hiking season and goodbye to skiing season.

Unless you’re me and you never say hello to skiing season.

Baseball season is finally here!

In short, the world just seems a little warmer, brighter and happier.


Has spring sprung where you live?

What Spring things are you doing this weekend?

    Yay for hiking season again! Can’t wait to get on some good mountains this summer. I’ve also been big into the citrus lately and lots of raw fruits and veggies as opposed to cooked ones in the winter. Happy weekend!

      I’ve been on a huge fruit kick in general, but citrus is my favorite right now!

    We’re still in the not really winter,but not quite spring mode yet. Can’t wait for more days outside and when warm isn’t 50 degrees.

    Oh, 10:45, huh? You are such a wild woman! 😉

    I am IN LOVE with all the spring flowers! I’m sure I’m driving my boyfriend crazy when every 5 minutes I’m like, “Did you see those irises? How about that pretty pink bush thing??” haha! And all I want to do is break out the sundresses and flip flops, but even after having an entire week of 80 degree temps, last week it was 60 and breezy during the day and dipping down to the 30’s at night. And then it poured down rain last night after being dry for TWO weeks! Craziness! Hopefully the rain will stay at bay for today so I can head down to the RIvers & Spires Festival downtown…they have arts and crafts, live music, and of course the main reason I’m going, a wine tasting tent! Woo!

    Yay for fro-yo season…though I’m like you and crave it year round…actually, I might crave it more in the winter. Yes, I’m a weirdo!

      Baha, yes, yes I do know that. My mom just booked a trip to NOLA for Memorial weekend and I’m SO jealous!
