The Mixtape // 12.23.16

December 23, 2016

‘Twas two days before Christmas, and yours truly had yet to finish her Christmas shopping or wrap a single gift. BUT — I’ve still got time to put together a little Mixtape post with some things worth sharing.

cranberry-tart-2Here’s what I’ve got planned for the upcoming holiday week:

  • Wrap presents, with my preferred brown paper and string, like these.
  • Make these on Christmas morning.
  • Make this for our family’s potluck Christmas dinner (always a hit and super easy, but special).
  • Paint my nails.
  • Watch Christmas movies — we already watched Die Hard, which Jordan swears is a Christmas movie (can we talk about Carl Winslow as the hero cop?!). I’m thinking more along the lines of The Preacher’s Wife and Home Alone.
  • Gift myself with this book of inspiration.
  • Answer three questions for 2017: 1) What do I want to stop doing? 2) What do I want to keep doing? 3) What do I want to start doing?
  • Keep Jameson in these pajamas for as much time as possible. Suitable for going out, no?
  • Ugly cry as I think about the significance of Christmas.

What are your plans for the holidays?

Whether grand or simple, here’s to plans that bring joy and peace.

Merry Christmas!
