Five on Friday: March Bucket List

Happy Friday and last day of February!!!  I can hardly believe it's time for my March bucket list!  I have to admit, I was a total failure when it came to my February list.. the only thing I did was find the cookie dough oreo's.  And they weren't even good!  In my defense- the Sky Zone didn't open yet, Cards for Humanity was sold out, and I'm still waiting for my Costco bucks so I can get my new computer.  I still plan to do all of those things, just not in February obviously :)  Now it's time to focus on March.. one month closer to Spring which makes me happy!  Here is what I've got planned for this month...

1) First things first, celebrate St. Patrick's Day!  We take St. Pattys Day very seriously here in Chicago.  We dye our river green, have a massive parade and the entire city parties all day long.  I have friends that come into town every year which makes the celebrations that much more fun!

2) Dry Bar has opened up in Chicago and I need to check it out!  We are celebrating my friend Erica's birthday next weekend so I think a visit to Dry Bar is in order before the trolley bar crawl.


3) I partake in Lent every year and plan to this year as well!  I have no idea what I'm going to give up yet.. I was thinking chocolate since that is my #1 weakness but I gave that up last year and I feel like I can't do it two years in a row?!  It starts on Wednesday so I need to figure it out ASAP!  What are you guys giving up?


4) Do our taxes.  Gross.  Enough said there.

5) Am I the only person that hasn't been to the Melting Pot?  I've been dying to try it for like 5 years now so I'm going to make it a date night for March!  How can you go wrong with a dinner of cheese and chocolate fondue?


What do you have planned for March?

Also, our giveaway ends Monday so don't forget to enter!  It's super easy on my end - just follow me through GFC or Instagram and you will be able to enter to win $70!

  9. Gah, I need to get our taxes done, too. I have to get all my receipts together for my Etsy shop, and the task is daunting because I didn't do a good job of recording everything as I went. And The Melting Pot is so good! I haven't been there in a few years, but I surprised at how good apples dipped in the cheese are!

  13. Happy weekend! I love St. Patty's! And the Melting Pot - you HAVE to go!! I think we have had that talk before though ;) And Dry Bar is one of my faves! A blow out and an adult beverage? Perfection!

  14. Mmmm Melting Pot! I'm so jealous you have a Dry Bar! I really want to buy one of their dryers, but I'm scared to bite the bullet.... Can't wait to hear about it.

  15. Being a Chicago girl myself, I MUST try out Dry Bar too!!!

  16. Don't do the melting pot without a coupon. Besides Valentine's day, they ALWAYS have a discount, especially if you sign up for the email list!

  17. I have never been to a Melting Pot either! We had one about 15 minutes from my house(it's closed now) AND I have a giftcard! I have no idea why I never made it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The melting pot is amazing, you must go!! I'm always racking my brain for what I want to give up this lent.

  21. Melting pot is the bomb.com. You will totally love it! :)

    I either give up something or take something on for Lent. Maybe take on a new bible study, or give up your cellphone or twitter after 8pm.

  22. Every time you do one of these bucket list posts it reminds me I need to do one month by month because February flew by and I feel like I didn't get to very much on my overall list for the year! I've never been to the Melting Pot either! I'm not sure what I'm going to do for lent this year either! I've already cut back so much on sweets in general I feel like it would kind of be cheating to give up anything in that category- which is usually my go-to!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Can you give up cooking for lent so you can stop putting all us other wives to shame? :) TOTALLY KIDDING! Great giveaway! We have a melting pot too-- funny how I thought that was just an AL restaurant since we don't venture up north too much.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Can you believe I have never been to the melting pot? ha! I need to go!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've never been to dry bar-it's on my bucket list! We have two here in dc.

    And Lent-oy. I'm still deciding what I want to do this year. For some reason I really want it to be different than what I normally do

  26. So much wonderfulness here!! I love drybar and Melting Pot!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such a great list!! I want to visit Chicago so bad and st pattys day there?! That would be a blast! Hope you have a great weekend!

  28. My FAVORITE st patty's day was a few years ago when it was 75 and sunny in Chicago. I mean, how can it get better than that? 2nd favorite would be last year when my friend and I went to Duffy's up in Lincoln Park for bottomless mimosas. Whoa. Things are a little blurry :) I will definitely miss my first st. patty's day not in Chicago!

  29. Stopping by from the link up and yes I have to say that you might be the only person in the world who has not gone to the Melting Pot (jk :)) but it is seriously amazing. I go just for cheese, wine, salad and dessert.

  35. We love St. Patrick's Day at our house and I'm hoping we'll be able to make it to Chicago one year to celebrate! You will LOVE The Melting Pot - salads, cheese fondue, meats and dessert fondue. Plan for dinner to take 2-3 hours and don't eat all day before you go because they give you SO MUCH food!! I love the chocolate/crunchy peanut butter fondue and it's such a fun experience. Can't wait to hear what you think about it. Hope you have a great weekend.

  36. You will have a fun March checking these off - well, except #4 which is unfortunately also on my March bucket list. Ugh! I'm amazed that there is another human being who hasn't been to Melting Pot - I never have but think it would be pretty amazing!
