Winter/Holiday Bucket List

Tis’ the season filled with holiday cheer! Thanksgiving has passed, and Christmas is right around the corner. WHOOP WHOOP! Winter will also be in full effect beginning December 22nd and to be honest…I am not ready for it nor am I really excited about the cold weather that comes with it (I am a summer baby). However, I would love to make the most out of this holiday and winter season and bring in some positive vibes. So here are a few of my bucket list activities I want to get into this winter!


Go see Christmas Lights

Even as I get older, I love to go see the Christmas lights! This is one of my favorite holiday/winter activities. I still love to see that one house in the neighborhood that’s always LIT! I reside in the DC metropolitan area and there is a Christmas lights maze at the Nationals Park that I definitely plan on visiting!

Go Ice Skating

I have never been Ice Skating but have always wanted to, especially during this time of year! A night time Ice Skating trip is an activity I want to experience during this holiday/winter time, instead of hiding from the cold weather all day every day.

Holiday gingerbread houses
Make a Gingerbread House

Making a gingerbread house is a priority for me this season. This is also something I have never done…do not come for me! I am so excited to put my gingerbread house making skills to the test for sure. Will it stand? Follow me on Instagram to find out! lol.

Create “Winter Kits” for homeless

Giving to those in need is always something I would love to do, no matter the season. However, winter can be a rally harsh season with freezing temperatures and the occasional snow/winter mixes. I would love to give out necessities to help other stay fed, stay groomed, and stay warm! I would love to help where I can.

DIY Wreath

Attempting to create my own winter/holiday wreath sounds very fun. I would be able to get creative and make one that’s just for me. I’m thinking a mix of gold and silver, with some sparkle! I plan on getting some Pinterest inspo for sure.

Holiday Cookies
Make Festive Cookies

First of all, cookies are my JAM! So making festive, holiday cookies will definitely be my JAM JAM! Little gingerbreads, christmas trees, snowflakes, and all the above. I am definitely trying to go in.

Snow Tubing

I have been snow-tubing before and it is super fun! I’ve also been skiing but snow-tubing is more on my level so to speak lol. This is a very family friendly activity and it is guaranteed that every one will have so much fun!

Have a “Cozy Night-In”

A cozy night in, watching movies, with some hot chocolate, fuzzy socks, comfy pj’s, and my super hyper pitbull sounds like a lot of nights I’ll be having this season. To be honest, I am super ready for them! I can also consider these my self-care nights, which will be much needed fighting the seasonal depression!


I hope to fulfill everything I mentioned on my bucket list, especially the activities I have yet to experience. Although Winter is not my favorite season, I will be making the most out it while it is approaching! Please feel free to share some activities you will be doing this season, or even places you may be going. I would love to add-on to my list.

Stay tuned for the next post as Blogmas continues! ❄🎄
