There are not enough hours in the day. Can you relate? I sure can. Lucky for us every four years we play catch up and add an extra day to the year: February 29th. I started thinking about my never-ending to-do list and asked myself, “What would I do with an extra day?” Here is my (probably too optimistic) list for the “free” 24 hours!
9 hours: SLEEP!
Bed Head Classic Pjs
I think we can all agree that this is a no-brainer. Cozy up in our cute pajama sets, which make bedtime all the more fun!
3 hours: Clean out and evaluate my closet
Did Elizabeth’s closet clean out inspire anyone else? If you read part three of Elizabeth’s series, she makes a list of investment pieces to keep an eye out for to add back into her closet. After donating things I do not wear any more, I plan to make a long-term shopping list of these types of pieces. Cashmere, suede, and a great pair of jeans are all great investment pieces to look out for!
2 hours: Find aforementioned investment pieces
Now that we have cleaned out our closets and determined what we need to purchase, it is time to go out and find it! Above you will see our favorite BCBG suede dress which just arrived at Kiskadee this month.
2 hours: Lunch with an old friend
With our busy lives, sometimes we just do not take the time to enjoy the company of others. I vow to grab lunch on Monday with a friend I have not seen in a while, and really be present during our time together.
2 hours: Volunteer
Giving back to the community we call home is SO important, yet I find myself only doing it around the holidays. Brighten the day of those in need by volunteering at a local charity, or taking a bag (or two!) of groceries to the Carpenter’s Shelter. Want to go above and beyond? Make a monetary donation to your favorite organization.
1 hour: Hot Pilates at Mind the Mat
Working out is always the first to get dropped when days get hectic, so make a commitment now and sign up for class on Monday (maybe even try a new class!).
3 hours: Spend quality time with loved ones
Use this day as an excuse to lounge around the house with those you care about most, or make a phone call to a favorite friend or relative to catch up.
2 hours: Try a new restaurant
Earlier this month I checked off quite a few new restaurants during Restaurant Week, but there are still so many amazing places to try. Next on my list Hank’s Pasta Bar, which just opened in Old Town!
Working all day on Monday? Pick one or two of these to do when you get off work!
