Labor Day Weekend to-do List

I love to-do lists.

I make one each week for what I want to get done for the weekend. It is usually normal stuff like laundry, long run, practice body pump, make cookies, go to the Farmer’s Market, etc.

This weekend, we are headed up to the Lake for Labor Day.  . . (BTW – how is it Labor Day weekend already???)

And I was thinking about my to-do list and thought I would share my Labor Day Weekend to-do list. . .

1. Get a S’mores Dairy Queen Blizzard. I can’t let summer be over without trying this new flavor. I have heard that it is amazing and I can’t wait to try it out myself!

2. Run around the Lake –14 miles. This was on my summer to-do list and I have been increasing my long runs each week in anticipation of my big run around the Lake this weekend!!


3. Go on an after dinner boat ride. Adult alcoholic beverages encouraged.


4. Drink my caramel skim latte on the porch while soaking up the quiet Lake morning.


5. Practice the newest BODYPUMP 87 release.


6. Work on my presentation for Healthy Living Summit – just 2 weeks away!!

7. Research new phones. Scott wants to switch to a different phone plan which may mean getting rid of my beloved iPhone. . . I know! He promised that we only had to switch if I was able to find an acceptable alternative. So, if any of you have a phone that you love, please send recommendations my way.

8. Make fruit pizza, Special K bars and double marshmallow rice krispie bars. <—now you see why #2 is on my list!!


9. Hang with my family. . . especially Laura –> we have had alternating schedules all summer long so we haven’t been at the Lake together since the end of June for Country Fest!

What’s on your Labor Day weekend to-do list?

      After you gave me the idea, I seriously cannot get enough Special K bars – this will be my 3rd batch this month!!

  3. No more iPhone???! But how are you going to Instagram? I thought all phone plans allowed iPhones… Obviously, my phone is a serious priority and I couldn’t live without it 😉

      I know Becky!! How can he even ask me to consider this??? I knew I should have included something in our vows about iPhones and Instagram!! 😉

  4. Oh gosh, I don’t think I could give up my iPhone….Good luck with that! That blizzard also looks awesome. Have a great weekend!

      I know!! I am crossing my fingers that maybe everything will work out and I won’t have to. A girl can hope, right?

  5. Looks like a great list! Good luck with your run–lakes always seem to make runs go by faster I think. We are headed up to a cabin on a lake with friends where we will be enjoying multiple boat rides (with adult beverages!)

  6. It has been forever since I have eaten a Blizzard. Maybe I should add that to my weekend to do list, too!

  7. Hi Katie! I just found your blog and got really excited because I lived in Mankato for 2 years (grad school at MSU). I live in Ohio now, but am excited to relive my time in Mankato through your blog. Have a great Labor Day weekend!

  8. I love To Do lists as well! They just make me feel way more organized haha. Your to do list for Labor Day Weekend sounds awesome! I want to try that Blizzard flavor as well now! Nothing s’mores can ever be bad 🙂 Oh gosh, I don’t think I could get rid of my iPhone – I don’t think I’ll be able to have another phone!

      I know – I feel the same way about my iPhone!! Thankfully Scott says that if I can’t find one that I would be willing to switch to, then we don’t have to make the change – but it would save us some $$, so that’s a hard choice!!

  9. Looks like you already have a fab weekend planned! I love having To-Do-Lists! I always make one at the beginning of every month so I have a guide for specific things I want to get done that month!

    I was an Iphone lover FOREVER, but then decided to make that leap of faith into the cellular gods and switch to the Samsung Galaxy s3 and I wouldn’t ever go back to an Iphone again! I love, love, love the galaxy and would switch again anyday! I even purchased the Galaxy Tab2 a few months after I got my phone because I loved it so much!

      My husband loves your comment and read it out loud to me! I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation. 🙂

  10. Oh no!!!! Not the I phone!!! I love my I phone, I don’t think I could ever go back to a different phone. We have a Mac and an IPad so everything syncs so easily. I love it. So convenient.
    My to do list…. Half marathon.. Which you’re doing 14 so good luck!! And after running heading to the cabin to relax and eat lots 🙂 making homemade pasta on Saturday 🙂

    Have a fun weekend.

  11. It looks like you are going to have a great weekend. Mike’s… mmmm!
    A 14-mile run around a lake sounds perfect to me. I have 13 on the docket this weekend and could use a nice, beautiful loop like that. Enjoy.

  12. Which class are you speaking at for the HLS? I’ll have to find you at some point!

    I’m all about making to-do lists. In fact, I make one for myself every. single. day. It just works for me!
    Hope your weekend is great!
