Mittens, Snowflakes and Cut-Out Cookies: Winter Bucket List 2013.

The days are shorter, the weather is colder and it has even snowed a couple of times. I know it isn’t officially winter; however, I’ve already started listening to Christmas music (I’m really feeling the Christmas spirit this year :) ) so I may as well begin my winter bucket list!

I am so looking forward to this winter season. Marty and I have another trip planned to New York City at the end of December and my little nephew is due on December 23rd. Big things ahead…

Have you created your winter bucket list?

    I love this, what a great idea! I might have to borrow it :) My family watches ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ every year. It is one of my favorite Christmas traditions! Happy Holidays!!

      You definitely should :) ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ isn’t just one of my favorite Christmas movies, it is one of my all-time favorite movies. I absolutely love Jimmy Stewart and his acting just blows me away every time I watch it!

    I have not created a winter bucket list, but I may steal yours! I want to do all of those things. Oh, but I never saw Elf OR It’s A Wonderful Life.

    I love this! You’ve inspired me and this weekend I am definitely going to create my own Christmas things to do list :) I had my first festive hot drink this week – Costa’s honeycomb hot chocolate, it’s rather sweet but it’s out of this world!

      Yum! Sounds so delicious :) I have a feeling that a festive drink is in my near future too. Cannot wait to have some hot cocoa!!

    Ah I love this bucket list! There are SO many things on your list that I want to do, too! :) Makes me excited for winter, even though I hate the cold!

      The cold is okay but I definitely get sick of it come February! March just seems to drag on but I am going to try to plan fun activities that makes it more enjoyable :)

    We’ve never had a real Christmas tree before, but I really like our big old fake one :D Decorating it with ornaments and lights is kind of a tradition for us.

    What Christmas movie are you thinking of watching in theaters? We always watch some movie on Christmas day (Sherlock Holmes two of the times)… Never too early to start planning! ;)

    Christmas cookies would be on my list too. I should really make one this time. You have such awesome to-do lists!

      Thank you! :)

      I feel like we are running out of time to go and cut one down. If we don’t get around to it on Sunday afternoon, I think we will just have to stick with our fake one this year! :) There is nothing wrong with it but I just wanted to start a new tradition!! :)

      I’m not sure what Christmas movie we’ll see in theaters. A theater near us plays Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street, Santa Clause, ect throughout the month of December so I’m hoping to get up there before December is over.

    Your bucket lists are always so cute! I haven’t made a list yet, but am looking forward to baking Christmas cookies with my mom and sisters, watching favorite Christmas movies, and going to Christmas at the zoo!

      Thank you Hilary :) I’m baking cookies with my mom and sister this Saturday afternoon! I can’t wait. Now I just need to decide on which kind to make…

    Too cute! Have fun crossing off your items! If I weren’t in college and didn’t have exams ending on the 22nd I would make one of my own

      Oh no! Well, you could always make a late winter bucket list???

    Loving the new blog look! I don’t have a bucket list but I have downloaded some christmas playlists today and am thinking about what holiday movies to watch!

      Thanks Kerry :) I need to make a Christmas playlist. I’ve been listening to Pandora mostly but it’d be nice to have a list with all of my favorites!

    I don’t have a bucket list yet, but yours has inspired me.. I’ll be making one soon! And a lot of the items on it will be the same – NYC, Christmas cookies, a snowman!

      You definitely should! I swear it helps me do more of the things I want to do each season :)

Impromptu photo shoot this afternoon 🌿🌾 #nephew #sister #myfavorites Finally took some time to register yesterday. Why are there so many options?? Just give me two/three choices and I'll chose my favorite. 🚼 #endlessoptions  #overwhelming #latergram Summer walks + wild flowers. #highbanks #brightandcheery Celebrating my lovely cousin @kelseygould1 this afternoon. πŸ‘° #bridetobe #hotsummerafternoon Better than the gym. πŸŒ³πŸƒ #highbanks Adorable (and delicious) cupcakes from my surprise baby shower yesterday! #kellyscakery #babyboden1 #latergram Lovely stroll through the #farmersmarket this morning. β˜€οΈ #itfeelslikefall Hello third trimester. It feels like I've been pregnant forever. Becoming more & more anxious to meet our little one! Only twelve weeks to go! πŸ‘ #babyboden1 #babybump #thirdtrimester I was writing a letter to our little one this week & as I went to sign my name realized I could write 'mom' instead. I get to be a mom...to a daughter! How surreal. I pray for that special mother-daughter bond like I have with my own. Already dreaming of all the adventures we will have together! πŸ’• #babyboden1 #babybump Happy Birthday to me. 🎈🍦#celebrate #jenisicecream My view for tonight. ⛺️#staycation #thegreatoutdoors #mdboden Goodbye Florida.
