Holiday Bucket List

The Holiday season is in full swing so I thought it would be fun to share with y'all what's on my bucket list for this December. December is definitely one of my favorite months of the year as Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I am definitely very excited about it haha! It's crazy to think that this time next year, I'll be prepping for my college finals and will not be home until mid-December so I definitely want to do my favorite holiday things at home (even though most of these I'll should be able to do at school next year).


Watch my favorite holiday movies
I'm so excited to watch all of my favorite movies. I've already started by watching Elf but hope to watch a few more of my favorites this holiday season as they're such a good way to get into the Christmas Spirit

Enjoy my Starbucks favorite: Peppermint Mocha
Skinny Peppermint Mochas are my go-to coffee this time of year and I'm so excited to get a few this month at Starbucks!

Find a perfect gift for everyone on my list
It may be because I love shopping but I love finding the perfect present for my family and friends. I also love seeing the reactions of my family to their gifts on Christmas morning and wrapping the presents, of course!

Bake lots of sweet treats
If you're a longtime reader of Chic in Carolina, you know that I love baking! Unfortunately during the school year, I don't have a lot of free time to spend baking, which makes the holidays the perfect time to make some yummy goodies. I'm planning on sharing a recipe post in the next few weeks or so but for now, be sure to check out my Christmas board and my Baking board on Pinterest!

Decorate!
This one is actually already done but I had to include it on my bucket list anyways. Decorating for Christmas is always one of my favorite parts of the season, especially decorating the tree!

Spend time with family and friends
It seems life has been so busy lately and the holidays are the perfect time to spend quality time with my family and friends, especially over break when I don't have any homework to do. I'm so excited for my family to come visit for Christmas and also to hang out with friends over the break

Visit Christmas Town USA
Christmas Town USA aka McAdenville, North Carolina is known for their Christmas lights and decorations and isn't too far away so I really want to take a little trip to go see the town this year.

Make lots of hot chocolate
Nothing is better than curling up to watch a Christmas movie with a mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows of course). Hopefully, I'll be able to do this more than once this Christmas season ;)

Drive around my neighborhood to see all of the Christmas lights
I've honestly never done this but I really want to go drive around my neighborhood or the neighborhoods nearby to see all the lights while listening to Christmas music!

What is on your holiday bucket list? Let me know in the comments!

  17. Trying a peppermint mocha is on my holiday bucket list this year! I wanted to see the Nutcracker, but I accidentally waited a little too late to get tickets, so I guess that will have to move over to the 2017 Holiday Bucket List ;)
