3 day weekend!!!
Memorial Day weekend is coming up and what does that mean?… 3 day weekend!!! When the realization hit me that a 3 day weekend is coming up, countless ideas stream across my mind of all the events, activities, and fun you’ll get to enjoy that you wouldn’t before if it was just a regular Average Joe weekend. Unfortunately some of us end up spending the long weekend just like any other weekend, watching TV and doing chores. Make sure to take the time and step outside for your exciting adventure.
Here are some ideas to liven up this upcoming 3 day weekend and leave a spring in your step when you return to work on Tuesday:
- Have a pool party! Memorial Day is a red flag that Summer is on the way. Have a BBQ and invite friends over to listen to great classic rock songs like Creedence Clearwater Revival ‘s “Fortunate Son”. If the weather isn’t quite warm enough for a drip, spend the day outside and get some fresh air. Play games, laugh, and enjoy nature.
- Be adventurous! Get in your car and drive… and go wherever it leads you. Visit a part of your own town that you’ve never really explored before. Eat at the Mom and Pop restaurant you always drive past but have never eaten at. Even taking a different route to the supermarket can make it feel like you’ve added some adventure to your day.
- Take in a parade! What better way to spend Memorial Day weekend then taking in a parade and celebrating what it was really meant for, remembering those that have served and died in war. Check your local newspaper for events. And if nothing is organized, then this could be your opportunity to try on your event planning hat!
Whatever you decide to do this weekend…enjoy.
