My Christmas To-Dos

I have several things that I want to do before Christmas is here. Let's jump right in:

1. Make the Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls:

I will be the first to say that I really stink at baking. I usually over-mix things and they become dense, don't rise, and/ or look super funky. My sister and I once made cookies that resembled one giant pancake. I don't know how that happened. Anyways, the only way to get better is to practice right?? Well that's just what I'm going to do. First on my list, are these cinnamon rolls. I've wanted to make these for years and I think it's finally time. This isn't something I normally eat but why not splurge a little for this festive time of year?? I'll let you know how it goes.

2. Ice Skating

Mark and I seem to miss all the Christmasy festivities because he is usually gone right up until Christmas. Well this year, we have a little less than a week in SD to have some Christmas fun and I'm taking full advantage. There is an ice skating rink set up close to our house but I REALLY want to go to the rink at the Hotel Del. I know it's going to be amazing there.

3. Yearly Ornament

Every year we get a special ornament that signifies something that we've done that year or somewhere we have visited.  Last year, we got a really cute one from Disneyland since it was our first time going together. This year, I'm not sure what we are going to get, time will tell!

4. Finish Christmas Shopping

I am almost done with Christmas shopping, hallelujah! I actually really enjoy buying presents for people but I have a few people that I can't figure out. Can't I just buy everyone the things I love... books and skincare lol?  I'll figure it out! :) I'm almost done with stocking stuffers too. I just need a couple more items.

5. The Nutcracker

We are going to see the Nutcracker tonight! I am so excited!! I've wanted to go for a few years but it never seems to workout. We bought the tickets last minute, because we weren't sure if it was going to work out. It will be fun to dress up and have a Christmasy date night, especially since I will be depressed that we won't be in Vegas at my parents Christmas party. This is the first time we've missed it in years. Mark actually surprised me the first year we started dating, and showed up at my parents party. Such great memories!

I'm linking up with some of my faves today... September Farm, The Farmer's Wife, A. Liz Adventures, Hello Happiness, and Carolina Charm. Have a great weekend!
