Winter Wish List (2012 / 2013)

winter wonderland

Winter came in with a bang this year with a snowstorm delivering 20 inches of snow in some areas of my town. While I look forward to a White Christmas, let’s think about the winter season ahead and make some goals and wishes for the season.

Things to Do

  • blow bubbles outside and watch them freeze
  • Ring in the new year – I want to throw a little Family New Years Party with the kids and our in laws visiting. Order some take out, watch a movie and play board games, make a fun dessert and see how late we can stay up!
  • throw a party – maybe a New Present Party for the kids (everyone bring a fun new present they received and have fun playing with friends?) or a book exchange party?

Things to Make

Places to Go

  • a local museum like the Geology Museum or the Mustard Museum – we’ve been wanting to visit both since we moved here but haven’t done it yet.
  • Visit the Botanical Gardens indoor garden and soak up some nature on a cold winter day.
  • My favorite yoga studio – Time to start actively trying to get into better shape again either via yoga or some active video games or DVDs.

New Recipes to Try


  1. Your New Years plan sounds awesome! I’m still trying to decide what to do. Part of me wants to run away to Door County, but the thought of a road trip over the holidays is not appealing. . .but neither is going out to the “get blitzed” parties that people have this time of year. Who knows, maybe it will just be Fiona and I. . .but I can never get her to wear a party hat! 😉


    1. Yeah there is just nothing appealing about a “getting blitzed” party for me these days. Door County sounds fabulous – I have been dying to go there, hopefully this summer. Hope you find a fun way to ring in the new year :O)
