Things I Want to Do in December

Friday I'll be taking a look at the books I want to read in December but today I'm thinking about things I want to do during the month of December.

1.  Go to some holiday events in other cities.  We will be traveling a pretty good bit this month and I think it would be fun to visit festivals or other holiday things in other cities.  I know my own town's events forwards and backwards so experiencing some new stuff seems fun.

2.  Watch as many Hallmark Christmas movies as I can.  Are they incredibly predictable?  Yep incredibly so.  Does that effect how much I love them?  Not in the slightest!  Plus, Hallmark has a checklist app so any moment I'm home there will be happy people having slight conflict and lovely reunions in adorable small towns.

3.  Read whatever strikes my fancy.  I've decided this isn't the year to stick to my reading goals.  This year has been a bit crazy and my reading is just barely creeping along.  I think not worrying about publishing dates or what's next on my list and instead just worrying abut what sounds good sounds perfect.

4.  Squeeze in more audio books.  At the beginning of the year I was flying through audio books but along with the rest of my reading my audio book listening has slowed to a crawl.  I've got a few that I'm really looking forward to listening to and I really want to listen to them this month.

What are your goals for December?


  1. For December I plan to mood read as many books as I can so I can hit my Goodreads total. It will be a bit tight but I hope to get there! I've got about ten books planned at the moment to get me started for finishing a few challenges. Other than that I want stress free coach potato hibernation until January!

  2. Good luck with your goals! In December, I’m hoping to read the books that have been sitting on my shelf for over a year.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. I'm not much for Hallmark movie watching, but I know it's a favorite part of the holidays for lots of people. Enjoy!

  4. Oh I love this list and identify. I want be travelling but I do hope you experience new Christmas events. I am totally with you 3 and 4 and a Hallmark Christmas movie is always welcome.

  5. Oh my gosh, do you have netflix? I just watched a slew of hallmark-ish films... I recommend The Knight Before Christmas, Holiday Rush, and The Princess Switch. Another I watched and enjoyed enough but didn't totally love was Christmas in the Wild. And for a cartoon, I highly recommend Klaus! Have a great December!

  6. I want to bake cookies this year! 🍪🍪🍪

  7. My first goal was to put together the Christmas cards, create the envelope art, and then mail them off. That was finally done by yesterday. Now it's to survive Christmas shopping. I'm stuck on a few ppl this year which sucks.
