Top Ten Things We Love About Spring

  1. Barbecues! It’s time to dig that grill out of the garage, fire it up. and invite some friends and neighbors over.
  2. Hammocks. As some of you know, I am a hammock junkie. Nothing is better than taking a snooze on a comfortable hammock on a breezy spring Sunday.
  3. Sundresses. Need to stock up? Check out our latest!
  4. Fruity “Balcony” Drinks, like Mojitos, Bellinis and Sangria.
  5. Jogging and walking outside, not on a treadmill in a stuffy gym. A few ModCloth girls (Alicia, Molly and Natalie) are preparing for the Pittsburgh Marathon. Wish them luck!
  6. Spring Break. Even if you’re not in school, you deserve a little break. Why not take a day off to enjoy the other things on this list?
  7. The smell of hyacinths. Our sense of smell is supposed to be the most powerful of all the senses, so it’s no wonder that the scent of these lovely flowers is such a pick-me-up!
  8. No more snow boots! Pack away that bulky footwear – it’s time for peep toes and sandals!
  9. Strawberry Festivals are held all over the country. To find one near you, check out this web page. They even have strawberry-picking tips.
  10. Spring Cleaning might not sound “fun,” but we think it feels good to open the windows and let a little light in. This is a great time to clean out your closet and make a donation to Goodwill.

What are you looking forward to this Spring? I’d love to hear!

    I must admit it’s amazing spring weather – in the mid 60′s down here in Ga, and it’s supposed to get warmer as the days go by!
    My fav thing:
    Growing vegetables and sunflowers :)

    My favourite things in Spring:
    1. the warm and gentle gusts of wind
    2. this special smell in the air – the smell of sun, freedom and rest
    3. hope and optimism
    4. small buds, blooming flowers and greening grass
    5. NO MORE COLD, FLU, SNEEZING, FEWER and lying in bed!
    6. Long walks without anything on your head (I mean no fat hot hats after what you have an ugly mess on your head)
    wiosna is cool :)

    - NFL Draft
    - The farmer’s market in Madison returns to the Capital Square (called the nation’s best farmer’s market by Forbes!)
    - Long-sleeves but no need for coats (incidentally, one of my favorite things about fall)
    - driving with the windows down

    Going to Japan, and Spring = Cherry Blossoms (sakura)

    That means sitting underneath a cherry blossom tree, getting drunk publicly cause its legal :D

    Great list. Especially agree with the hammock – who doesn’t love a hammock.

    How about “It’s not Raining, Snowing, or Freezing anymore!” This is a really great top ten list. You can post this to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/ and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
