Winter Bucket List

So last season was my first attempt at making a bucket list and I must admit, I failed miserably. Really. I looked at this post of my Fall Bucket List and cringed at all the things I didn't do. What was I doing all fall?! My only saving grace is that many of the things can be carried over into the winter, so here's to second chances.

completed!
counted my blessings                    cozied up to scary movies
made hot chocolate                     wore rich colored lipstick & polish
jogged on the pier                         watched Hocus Pocus (2x!)
decorated for fall                           wrote a chapter of a novel (this kinddaaa counts?)
watched the Village parade        bought fall-scented candles
read 2 good books                        watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (on tv)
wore scarves                                   cooked 3 new dishes (surely this counts!)

Now that I've listed out all the things I've done, it doesn't seem so bad after all. And in my defense, I walked passed and peeked into an art exhibit down the street from me, watched tons of Sunday night football, and passed up on the stocking of candy corn because I'm trying not to eat my way into a new pants size. Some of my completed adventures are documented via posts on this blog (click links above), while some are pictures on Instagram. In the future, I plan to keep evidence of everything item that I complete and document it on my Instagram (Click here to be iG friends!).

So, about that winter bucket list...

I thought to add "eat lots of candy canes" but, again, not trying to put items on the list that result in bigger jeans. Regardless, I'm sure I'll find my way to them as it's not winter to me without candy canes. Although winter isn't my favorite season, I really do like it. To me, it always carries memories of week- and sometimes month-long vacations, snow days from school, big puffy coats, sledding with my daddy, hot chocolate in wintery mugs, warm fuzzy mittens (which I couldn't stand as a child), my birthday, and of course, lots of festivities.

What do you look forward to most about winter?
