I'm sure you all have some. Great memories of what the holidays were like in your home. You may do the same things your family did, or you could have started your own. There's a few things I love to do each December, and most of them are free....which is always awesome if you're looking for something to do.
Get some hot cocoa or coffee and drive around looking at Christmas lights.
Watch Home Alone with all the lights off except for the Christmas tree and recite the movie word for word.
Have a cookie baking day. Try a new recipe or just get wild with the frosting & sprinkles. How about one with pudding like some Chocolate Mint Christmas Dream?
Make a craft. This year I made a garland for my Christmas Coffee Tree. Have you seen it yet? I gave a tour which I hope you enjoy.
Go to your favorite store and don't spend any money. Get inspiration for decorations or plan what you're going to buy the day after Christmas....hello SALES!
Get ideas for next year's tree & how I will decorate it. There's plenty of creativity in my Inspirational Instagram Accounts: Holiday Home Decor. I'm talking serious swoon worthy homes you guys.
Snuggle up at the library or your local bookstore reading some good books. These places are always cozier around the holiday time.
Make new traditions. My friend Anne shared her Cocoa Bar and got me in the mood to make my own. If you don't already follow me on Instagram, stay tuned for how my ideas turned out.
Light a candle, snuggle up on the couch and enjoy Christmas movies and shows. A few favorites are: The Great Christmas Light Fight and The Great Holiday Baking Show on ABC, The Polar Express and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
I can't believe Christmas is THIS WEEK...enjoy every little moment with your favorite people. Until tomorrow....
What are your favorite things to do this month?
