5 Things To Do In May.

02 May 2013

1.  Head to a baseball game!

From little league games to the majors, May is the perfect month to catch a game.  The weather is gorgeous and you catch the excitement of fans realizing that baseball is back!

If you’re local, head to the Mud Hens on May 4 or May 5 for Star Wars weekend, the players are going to be suited up in Chewbacca uniforms!  Awesome, no?

2.  Clean out your car.

Now that the weather is warmer {for most of us… some of you are still getting snow!} it is the perfect time to clean out your car.  Wipe down the interior, make those windows sparkle, and throw away any errant Goldfish crackers that have invaded your backseat.  This is also the perfect time to check those car seats to make sure the shoulder and head rests are fitting properly or need to be adjusted.

3.  Plant herbs in a container garden.

My Meme is 89 years old and she swears that the ‘plant the day after Mother’s Day’ rule is perfect for the zone here in Ohio.  Hit up your local nursery or your Farmer’s Market and start planting all of those fresh herbs you’ll use to cook with all summer.  We keep ours in pots right by the kitchen door so I can just step out the door and snip herbs to add to our meals.  We always plant rosemary, chives, thyme, flat leaf parsley, peppermint, several basil plants, and dill at our house.

4.  Get a pedicure.

Amp up those summer toes with a pretty color.  Don’t forget to get those heels in tip top, flip flop shape.  Need some help deciding a great color?  Check out the Top Spring Nail Trends according to Harper’s Bazaar.  My sister Lyndsey and I are getting one today!

5.  Grill something.

Even better, grill something and eat al fresco.  Invite some friends over and make something delicious.

I have only had one pedicure in my whole life. I really need to clean my car out. I love me some baseball. It is 48 degrees here right now, and really does not feel like May.

I'm excited that May is here! So many fun things coming up. In addition to cleaning out our cars, we're going to be cleaning out the garage soon :) Maybe one of these days we'll be able to fit a car in there...

Hmmm I might have to plant some stuff. Although it's already 428 degrees here in Texas come Mother's Day weekend. Even if it is only 50 degrees today.

#5 sounds like a GREAT idea! What time should I be there? ;-)

Yay! Everything you listed is so SPRINGY! I really needed the reminder because Denver can't figure out what season it is and the snow is still on the ground from MAY 1ST! GAH!

Anyways, we totally have a baseball game scheduled in a few weeks (Giants VS Rockies) and I'm so excited! Now we just need a grill...

What do I like to do in May?! Well, have a baby!!! Just over two weeks to go and I can hardly wait. But before the baby arrives, we hope to go to the Animal Inside Out exhibit (It is like Body World but with animals) and see Iron Man 3. We went to a baseball game last weekend and this weekend we went to the race track for the Derby. Last night we agreed we will grill next weekend since corn is now in the store (grilled corn is the BEST!) Normally we would be planning a crawfish boil on our condo rooftop! :) Now I want to clean out my car too....

I would have to say all the above:) the car seriously needs to be cleaned out. With constantly running around we have lots of random crap in there. And baseball...well we live and breath baseball this time of year.
