Making My List, Checking it Twice

I thought I’d interrupt my gift guide coverage with a little holiday bucket list, so you can see what I’m actually planning on doing (instead of shopping for!) this November and December. I have about two dozen lists in the notes section of my phone, and this is one of them, so I figured why not share it with you all too?!

I also included a New York City-specific mini guide as well! I’ve been to a bunch of these, and the rest were recommended to me by you all or peeps I know who have lived in NYC longer than I have.

I hope that either section inspires you to make your own list, take the afternoon off to do something festive, or simply get together with your best friends for a holiday movie and cookie baking night in!

My Holiday Bucket List

  • Decorate and photograph our apartment (to share with you all and have to remember forever!)
  • Watch at least five Christmas movies (Johnny and I will make a list of these and we will get to WAY more than five)
  • Do a Christmas devotional for the month of December
  • Bake the Pillsbury Christmas cookies like this
  • Visit at least three places on the below list of holiday activities in NYC!
