to do list

December 3, 2013

There is something about December. The weather gets colder, holiday decorations get put up, burring a branch vermeil candle feels normal. I love the Holidays and I am determined to soak up every minute of this time of year. I decided to put together my list of things to do before Christmas – and I think it pretty much covers it all.

1. buy something that sparkles
2. pick out wrapping paper…something preferably gold
3. take a stroll through Wolflin to see the Christmas light
4. drink some hot chocolate from Starbucks
5. …or make your own and spike it (just a little)
6. host a party – everyone needs a reason to dress up
7. practice tying bows
8. paint your nails red, add gold if possible
9. see the nutcracker…take any reason you can to get dressed up
10. decorate the Christmas tree…find something special to add to it this year
11. go see Amarillo Little Theatre’s white christmas
12. perfect your favorite champagne cocktail
13. buy a pair of hunter boots from Lilly Finch – you’ll need them for when it snows
14. make a snow angel
15. make a new holiday playlist (sharing some of my favorites here)
16. make s’mores by the fire
17. take a Sunday afternoon to write out Rifle Nutcracker holiday cards
18. get a pair of earrings that pop…you’ve had your eye on those Margaret Elizabeth ones for a while
19. go to the electric light parade
20. get some coats to the Evelyn Rivers Project
21. have a wrapping party and put that gold wrapping paper to use
22. go shopping for your Christmas outfit
23. look up new recipes to use this year at our Christmas breakfast
24. find a killer gift to use in our friends’ white Santa gift exchange
25. leave some cookies out for Santa on Christmas eve, even though you know you’ll be the one eating them. 

Am I missing anything??
