Hello everyone, one of my Blogmas posts was a Winter bucket list and with winter basically over and spring right around the corner, I decided that I would come back and see how well I did on my little list. Most of the snow ones didn’t really happen because there were about 2 weeks in April where it was above 50 and most times the snow didn’t last long, but the rest of the ones I was able to do 🙂 Let’s get started.
Finish Christmas Shopping– See the Christmas trees at the Museum of Science and Industry:Did this one also. Check out my Blogmas photo set to see some photos from that day! Visit the Christkindlmarket:Check. It was so beautiful and I was able to find vegan candy there as well!! Check out my post about that day here Drive around and look at Christmas decorations:This happened on more than one occasion. Friends, family, and I drove around and marveled at many houses and did more than critique others. See the Macy’s tree and windows:The hype of doing this was real. I had never been to Macy’s to see the tree or windows and I did both of those. It was spectacular and the people involved definitely put in a ton of work to make Macy’s beautiful for the holiday season. Go to Wisconsin for the weekend:I have done this a couple times. We were up there for New Year’s weekend and then I think another time but I can’t remember. Put up the Christmas tree:Put up our Christmas tree and took it down successfully. Have a Christmas movie night:I definitely watched sooooo many Christmas movies. It happened over a few nights (and one even in February) but I watched so many classics.
- Go sledding: It never snowed enough to go sledding
Read some good books with some wintery drinks:I don’t think I ever did these together but I definitely enjoyed some great books and wintery drinks separately. See all of my friends while they are home on break:I wasn’t able to see all of my friends because of work, vacations, etc. But I was able to see a lot of my friends and I have been seeing them as well when they’re been home for Spring Break as well. Dress up on Christmas:Since I was given a Shrek Christmas sweater and was forced to wear that on Christmas Day I wouldn’t really consider myself dressed up, but I wore nice pants so I sort of looked nice Do a winter photo shoot: Did a mini shoot but nothing too extravagant.
- Try to take a family photo… key word is try: This literally did not happen at all haha.
- Shovel some now: My neighbor with a snow blower beat us all to it each time it snowed
- Build a snowman: It literally didn’t snow enough to make one and when it did, the snow wasn’t good packing snow.
- Eat a candy cane: I didn’t even eat a mini one 😦
Make Christmas cookies Build a gingerbread house:2 of my friends and I each made one and they were super cute to be honest
All in all I would I was pretty successful. I just need a damn candycane.
