Either make a cute little meal for you and your special someone, or take a late night trip to Waffle House or another cheap breakfast place.

19. Boozy Popsicles

Just like the ice cream, look up some ways to create a great way to enjoy your favorite alcohol drinks.

Scroll through Pinterest for cute ideas to make things out of stuff laying around your house, like a wreath, or other spring-ish items.
