I didn’t want to make a big deal of it BUT… Today is my one year Blogiversary! Instead of writing a post about it I wanted to link you to this post by Jess. While reading it I continuously was nodding my head agreeing to every word… Thank you for reading my blog, it has truly been such a wonderful year of reflection and inspiration for me! Your sweet words and constant encouragement have made this blogging journey more than I ever expected. :)
Anyways… on to the real post…
Christmas is my jam.
I’m all about the winter festivities that come with this magical season… so in order to not miss out on any of it, here is the bucket list Zack and I have come up with:
Visit Peacock Lane. Peacock Lane is a great place. It’s a little neighborhood that gets allllll decked out for Christmas. We went there a lot when I was growing up… and that is where Zack proposed. It’s a very special place and I love going every year.
Hot cocoa with peppermint marshmallows. Have you guys seen these things? They look delicious…and I must try them out soon!
Visit PIR –Portland International Raceway also has a pretty great Christmas display, and you can pile people in your car and drive through. A Christmas must!
Decorate my cozy little abode. I want to thoroughly decorate our little home! I can’t wait!
Drink as many peppermint white mochas as I can get my hands on. Christmas in a cup… and sadly, no one makes them quite like Starbucks.
Visit the Christmas tree downtown.
Cut down our own Christmas tree. This is Zack’s idea… I’m ok with going to a random tree lot, but he insists on doing it the “right” way.
Snowboard. A lot.
Help put together community Christmas baskets. I used to do this a lot when I was younger with my mom. I would love to start the tradition with Zack.
Visit the mall at least once and see Santa. Just see him, I don’t want to sit on his lap or anything… maybe just wave? :)
Stroll through the snow. This require there to be snow first… I’m hoping for at least one good snowfall.
Tubing. Last year we went Cosmic Tubing and it was so fun! I would love to go again, and bring Zack this time!
Fireplace snuggles & s’mores. Nothing says winter like a roaring fireplace. I don’t love having fires, I prefer the heater… but at least one is necessary for the winter stretch…and I love me some s’mores. Maybe with peppermint ‘mallows for an added bit of Christmas joy.
Make a digital Christmas Card—Last year we mailed out Christmas cards, but this year we have a tighter budget, so I’m hoping to just email them out... Or post it on here and send the link? Tacky? Maybe, but better than nothing! I just want the fun of making one. :)
Listen to Christmas music for 25 days straight. It will probably end up being more than that seeing as I started listening to it before Thanksgiving… but the 25 days before Christmas is a necessity!
What’s on your Winter Bucket List?!
