My December Bucket List!

I cannot believe that December is almost here! This month/season is my FAVORITE time of the year! I am so excited about it! Brad and I have the house all decorated for our first Christmas as husband and wife! We are PUMPED UP! We had an Elf watching party at our house with the youth kids this Sunday and we are in full swing Christmas mode! If you’re wondering how I did on my My Fall Bucket List you can click that link! Here’s my December Bucket List!

This December Bucket List is a compilation of my bucket list and a few things from my goals list for this month. I will be posting a December Goals List soon!

    • It’s there first year to do this and I recently drove past it on my way home and it looks AMAZING!
  • Ride in a horse carriage through Christmas lights
  • Get a dog (fingers crossed y’all!)
    • For those of you who are unaware, I am OBSESSED with Corgis. Brad knew when he married me that getting me one was a price he would have to pay lol. So, I am PRAYING for a corgi this Christmas or for my birthday! Send me all your positive vibes y’all.
