Yes, I’m still working on my Fall Bucket List but since Winter doesn’t start until near the end of December, there is a 2019 Holiday Bucket List to fill in those gaps! Let’s share all the fun holiday related things we want to do this year. Thanks as always to Leslie for the link-up (and the above graphic). I’m also sharing my first gift guide of the year below, so read on!

    Oh I really want to see Frozen 2 too but I think I’ll have to wait for it to come out on video or on demand.

  2. Good luck with your list, I hope you get it all done! We use to do advents calendars when my children were smaller but we haven’t done one is a really long time. I should look into them again. We use to do the ones with toys but I bet chocolates would work now. πŸ˜‰

  3. I think I want to watch Home Alone this year (Hime for the Holidays, while technically is a thanksgiving movie it’s always one I watch this time of year). Love your bucket list and hope you make it to see some lights!

    We are hoping to see Frozen 2 this weekend! Geesh it’s a week out and the spoilers already!

    I love these advent calendars. The Northlight house one reminds me of a movie I watched on Netflix last year πŸ™‚

  5. I love Advent calendars! Last year my mom bought me the Aldi’s wine and cheese one! This year I bought myself 2 beauty ones (one is just 12 days, tho). I want to see Frozen 2 with my daughter… she was the PERFECT age when Frozen (the first one) was out. Memories!


  6. The Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo, and the Cookie Exchange sound wonderful. I also want to see Frozen 2. Hope you get to all the items on your list! πŸ™‚

  7. Oh, the zoo! The zoo! I think our zoo does something holiday-y, too. And Lucia would love it. Thanks for the suggestion. We are going to be up your way next week but never seem to be able to go for just a visit. Someone is always sick or in crisis. Someday we will be able to enjoy Cincinnati, Mariemont and some of the other pretty places up that way.
    Will be interested to see what you think of Frozen II. We went last weekend. Best part for me was having the family together.
    Love all of the advent calendar suggestions. Have never had one as an adult! Maybe it is time.
    Thank you for joining me, sweet friend.

    Great lists. Every year I say I want to do an advent calendar but never do it. πŸ™ Need to just do it. Seeing lights is on our list too. Plus having a bonfire. Going to a Christmas Festival. Having a secret Santa exchange. And a few other things. I’ll share my whole list later this week πŸ™‚ Wishing you a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. I’m excited to drive around and see the lights πŸ™‚ I don’t want our kid to be a non-sleeper, but if she needs driven around that’s definitely what we’ll be doing πŸ™‚
    My brother and sister-in-law are planning to go to Winterfest at King’s Island, too!

    We always drive around and look at Christmas lights too. It’s so much fun! And I like baking Christmas goodies all throughout the month. It makes the house smell so yummy and I love anything sugar lol!
