Spring Break To Do List

March 7, 2016
love you more too north dallas blogger plano lifestyle blogger foodie spring break to do list

One of the biggest perks in being a counselor in a school are the breaks.  Spring break is actually one of my favorites because it breaks up the time between Christmas and summer break.  This year, I made a spring break to do list to hold myself accountable. Without further ado…my spring break to do list:


  • Try a new group class
  • Load up on Gym & Juice week classes at The Barre Code Plano (more on that in tomorrow’s post)
  • Stretch/yoga at least three times
  • Take the dogs for a walk on the days it doesn’t rain


  • Avoid sweets
  • Try a new recipe


  • Master closet
  • Kitchen
  • School stuff
  • Makeup/my side of master bath


  • Write up the next 2 weeks of blog posts
  • Plan out the next month of blog posts
  • Update about me section
  • Learn more about Google Analytics


  • Journal every day
  • Quiet time every day
  • Plan our summer trip/vacation

At at the end of the week, I will post a follow up to share the areas I did well in (and where I could have used more motivation).

Happy spring break to all the fellow educators out there! I hope you find rest and relaxation.

What’s on your to do list this week? Comment below and share.

    I can’t believe its spring break already! I love the idea of finding quiet time every day. That’s great advice for every day of the year!

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 12:32 pm

      Absolutely, Chris! Our spring break came a week early this year, but I am grateful for it. 🙂

    I miss spring break (graduated college 4 years ago). Glad to see you are preparing for it and will being doing some productive things.

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 1:41 pm

      I miss college spring break too! haha. It’s nice when your career has spring breaks, I must admit. 🙂

    The year is flying by so quickly! But it’s exciting that spring is almost here. With your spring-break-to-do list you have so much planned. I love how you’ll get it all done by being so organized. Enjoy spring break!

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 4:57 pm

      Thanks, gorgeous! The year is definitely flying by. 🙂

  • Nora Spaulding March 7, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    I love this list post! I need to start getting on top of my goals currently and making them happen! It seems like the blog always needs updating -am i right? And the personal points- my soul craves it, journaling and meditation! 🙂 Good Luck!

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 8:58 pm

      Thanks, Nora! Lists help me stay organized and I am way more likely to do what needs to be done if I make one. 🙂 I am hoping it keeps me in line. haha. Yes, the blog always needs updating.

    Love this! I bet that is an awesome perk for the break! Looks like you have a good list to work on. 🙂

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 8:58 pm

      Thanks, girlie! Fingers crossed I stick with it. ha. 🙂

    Love lists! Best way to achieve most of it or all. 🙂 Good luck organizing the closet, I love doing that even though it is a ton of work. 🙂 Happy Monday.

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 8:59 pm

      I love organizing everything, but I think the closet is my favorite. It’s always funny what I forget I have. Thanks, dear!

    I just started SB today and so far I’ve just taken a 3.5 hour nap and watched Netflix – haha! I should make this to do list though. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 9:00 pm

      I watched a bit of Netflix myself. 😉 That is part of the rest and relaxation. haha.

  • Cara March 7, 2016 at 7:06 pm

    That’s so awesome you get a spring break! Hope you’re able to accomplish a lot on your to-do list 🙂

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 9:00 pm

      Thanks, girl! It is definitely a huge perk of the job and mostly well deserved. Education is hard. 😉

  • Britany @definefettle March 7, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    I’m insanely jealous of those who work in the school systems because of the wonderful vacation time they get {both on holidays + summertime}. I could REALLY use an entire week {or summer} to get my blog a little bit ahead so I wouldn’t have to scramble to create posts on time. Have so much fun, enjoy your time off:)

    • Jessica March 7, 2016 at 9:01 pm

      Thank you so much! Education is hard work and these breaks are well deserved. That being said, they are wonderful and I am super grateful for them. 🙂

    • Jessica March 8, 2016 at 7:53 am

      I try! Thank you. 😉

  • Chrissy March 8, 2016 at 5:28 am

    We’ve still got 2 more weeks to go before spring break here in Germany – but I really like all of your goals and some of mine are definitely the same.

  • Charlotte March 8, 2016 at 7:15 am

    Now that the weather has FINALLY warmed up, it’s nice to think about spring just ahead 🙂 Love this list and hope you’re having a great week!

    • Jessica March 8, 2016 at 7:54 am
