My holiday bucket list

I love the holiday season. I love the entire build-up to Christmas with all of the things to do and see and experience. I feel like there are endless activities to enjoy! And now that I have my own little family, I love this holiday more than ever!  With less than two weeks to go until Christmas, I still have quite a few things to cross off on my holiday bucket list.

Holiday Bucket List

Things I want to do this holiday season:

  • Drink eggnog
  • Look at Christmas lights
  • Listen to Christmas carols
  • Exchange gifts
  • Wear Christmas pajamas
  • Paint my nails bright red and sparkly
  • Sip tea with my mom at high tea in Chicago. (I’ve never done it before but we’re going next week!)
  • Enjoy time by the fireplace
  • Go shopping in an actual store (I’ve done all of my shopping online!)
  • Take a family picture in front of a Christmas tree
  • Finish my Advent devotionals/journaling
  • Read Christmas stories (both religious and non-religious) to Clara
  • Enjoy time spent as a family of three… because next year we’ll be a family of four – yikes.
  • Kiss (preferably Tim) under mistletoe
  • Watch ‘Elf’ and ‘Love Actually’
  • Bake Christmas cookies
  • Drink at least one holiday-inspired drink at Starbucks
  • Send Christmas cards
  • Laugh. A lot.

Holiday Bucket List

Things Clara is interested in: my necklace. Things Clara is not interested in: having her photo taken. I’m adding ‘take a cuter picture with Clara’ to my list.

What is on your holiday bucket list?!

    So fun! Christmastime is the best. Cheers to lots of cookies and kisses…preferably from Tim, haha!

  3. High tea sounds like so much fun! I had hoped to go when my family was in town a couple of weeks ago, but it didn’t work out – sad day! I bet you and your mom will have a blast 🙂

  4. Love this! Most of these are also on my bucket list! I especially love the “Kiss (preferably Tim) under mistletoe” It made me giggle. Though I guess you could also kiss Clara… For me, I don’t have much of an option besides kissing my husband without it being quite a bit
    awkward haha.

      Well if he stays on my good list, I may try to find some mistletoe to duck under… but you’re right, Clara could be a good replacement 😉
