  1. It’s winter where I am (Europe), but it gets a little too cold at times that I just want to chill at home than go out and sweat. 🙁

    I guess your list would make me go on a zumba class (hope there’s also one for adults)… and Spa day would be my to list! Ahhh we really should enjoy winter a bit more!
