Feels like Christmas

For some reason, this year  I am unusually excited about Christmas. Don't get me wrong, i'v always loved the holidays and i'm certainly no Scrooge. Maybe it's because we have already had snow? Who knows.
This year I have made sure that I am super organised. My Christmas shopping was finished at least 3 weeks ago. I have written all my cards and already picked out desert recipes to try out before the day.
This will most definitely make Christmas all that more enjoyable and I can just sit back and relax whilst everyone makes a mad dash to finish everything on Christmas eve. Smug, Me? Never!

So this is my list of what I want to do to make my Christmas even more enjoyable
How will you be celebrating?

  • Drink eggnog for the first time EVER!
  • Digg out my Destinys Child Xmas album.
  • Learn how to wrap presents - NICELY!
  • Make my family sit down and watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
  • Incorporate candy canes into as many deserts as possible.
  • Make sure to enjoy the Starbucks Xmas menu.
  • Enjoy Xmas dinner with my girlies
  • Visit Santa Claus - my friends 3 year old boy is the perfect excuse.
  • Window shopping in London with my bestie and enjoy the the city all lit up.
  • Wake up on Xmas day without a hangover. 

Hugs & Kisses

The snow does seem to have made everyone excited! It's made me excited anyway! I think my favourite part of christmas is the amazing free TV we get! It's my birthday on xmas too haha

The Starbucks Christmas menu is my FAVORITE part of the season! As soon as they start listing peppermint mocha and gingerbread frapps, I feel like it's officially Christmastime!

Katie said...

Alexandra said...

I adore Christmas and get more excited than most 6 year olds as the big day approaches. Definitely loving the Starbucks Christmas menu (not so sure about the eggnog though). Wouldn't it just be bliss to wake up on the magic morning sans hangover?... Sadly, for me at least, that is a christmas wish too far. X

It's great I did the same, I was so surprise that they started decorating the stores already in November, but it helped a lot to pick all the presents without rushing ^^
I love your Christmas list, it looks like you will really enjoy every second of your Christmas! ^^
I would have to try eggnog too, I never had it before :P

lula said...

Haha your list's very cool, I'll probably make one too except without the eggnog. Tried it 3 years ago and swore I'd never drink it again. Very american. For the desert recipes I recommend you try a French desert called "Gallette des Rois", trust me, everyone's going to love it ;)

kiss kiss bang bang

Josie said...

I LOVE your list, dear! I also have never tried eggnog and I think I'm going to have to do so soon.

Except now i'm worried I wont be able to fly home next week because of the snow. But finger crossed. Aside from that i've pretty much done all my shopping and watched Love Actually twice! I'm looking forward to decorating the tree and I have a sad obsession with wrapping presents!xx
