Winter Bucket List

I'm BA-ACK! It's been wayyy too long!!!

I don't know about you, but I always have things in the back of my mind, that never seem to make it to the front...haha...or to actually happening!

So, this year, (and this is a first for me) I am making a winter bucket list...for me AND for my family! I know that my kids will love it and I am hoping it will help me make time for more things to happen. So this is our family's bucket list, with suggestions from many! lol


-Go sledding
-Go ice skating
-Make a snow angel
-Read a book, wrapped up in a cozy blanket, with some hot chocolate
-Do you want to build a snowman? ;) (I couldn't help myself!)
-Make wassail
-Write out goals for next year and favorite memories of previous year
-Take time for a LONG, HOT shower and actually shave my legs (since they never show during the winter and it doesn't happen enough. hahahaha)
-Build a snow fort
-Have a snowball fight (real OR fake)
(If you don't have real snow, used cotton balls with your family. It's hilariously FUN! We got this from my girls' preschool and they LOVE IT! So did the rest of our family too!)
-Make homemade cookies and dip them in hot chocolate or milk
-Speaking of that last one, make homemade hot chocolate in the crock pot!
-Popcorn and a movie by the fireplace
-Take Pictures in the snow
-Shovel someone else's driveway anonymously
-Have a Movie Marathon Day
-Eat Fondue (and introduce my kids to it)
-Cook artichockes
-Go on a one-of-a-kind winter date with my husband
-Blow bubbles in the snow (and try and freeze them...thank you Pinterest!)
-Stay inside and color with my little ones
-Cut out snowflakes with my kids and hang them from the ceiling
-A day full of Family Board Games
-A day inside filled with making crafts!

I might even have to print or cut out some of the main ones and hang it up as a reminder to take time to make memories in our life.

What's on your winter bucket list? I'd love to hear more ideas! And I'll share pics of ours as we do them!
