We have been bopping around in our seats all day in the office this morning! Knowing that we are only hours away from a long holiday weekend is almost too much excitement to bear!
Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with different ideas on how to celebrate days off, so check out our list and see if anything speaks to you!
1. Get away for the night (or maybe 2!): There’s something about staying in a cozy hotel room where room service can be ordered and you aren’t responsible for cleaning any of the messes made. Take a load off and spend your weekend being taken care of by others. Real Simple provided us with 50 hotels that won’t break your bank!
2. Chicago idea center: So maybe we are a little biased, but here at Swingline we would argue Chicago to be the best city in the world. If you find yourself lucky enough to be spending your weekend in this windy city, be sure to check out Chicago’s best foodie street, there will surely be restaurants to satisfy your tastebuds.
3. Have your own Staycation: This idea is one of my favorites. It’s not always necessary to travel far when getting away, but sometimes changing the atmosphere of your own home is enough to let you feel as though you’ve spent the weekend somewhere special. Find some easy ways to enjoy your staycation here.
4. Spend time outside: The end of May provides us with some of the most beautiful weather, not yet too hot but still warm enough to comfortably sit outside and enjoy the nice breeze. Try something active like riding your bike or taking a long walk, or simply situate yourself on a comfortable bench and enjoy the outdoors that way.
5. Get that music going: Music is one of the fastest ways to lift your spirits and set the theme. Check out the compilation of music that Lauren Conrad put together to get you going.
Regardless of whether you’re spending your time relaxin’ all cool or engaging in crazy activities with your family and friends, make sure this weekend is well spent! What’s your favorite way to spend your days off?
