- Love Actually (check!)
- The Holiday
- Jingle All The Way
- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
- Nightmare Before Christmas
- Elf (...I know I'm the minority here, but not my favorite. I'm trying to give it another shot, though!)
Complete a Christmas-related DIY. Okay, I already cheated on this one right before Thanksgiving...a couple of my girl friends and I got together for a DIY Christmas wreathe soiree. So fun! Not easy, but still fun.
Bake Christmas cookies with friends! I'm thinking classic sugar cookies and maybe a little something extra. Okay, maybe more. Alright, so I actually have no self control or sense of "less is more," so I would like to just bake all the things.
Go to a Christmas party.
Drive around a neighborhood known for having a bunch of fancy house lights! Preferably on a chilly night with a hot beverage of sorts. But let's get real, it's forever 80 degrees around here, so fat chance of that happening.
Finish making/buying all my Christmas gifts. I'm unbearably behind on all of my Christmas gifts. Despite the endless (and borderline annoying) "gift giving" guides I've seen throughout all the blogs I follow, I can't seem to find the "right thing" for a few people on my list. Ah, the stress levels!
Make a holiday inspired cocktail. Both alcoholic and nonalcoholic...I don't discriminate.
Take it allllllll in. Slow down and actually enjoy the season.
