    Hey you, remember me? Yeah…I know…I disappeared off the face of the earth. Sigh.

    LOVE your winter bucket list…reminds me of all the things I love to do with the kids. However, would you believe I lived in MA & CT for a total of 7 years and never once went skiing (or ice skating)? Nope. Never. Crazy, I know, and I plan to one day try it out.

    I promise I’ll be keeping in touch more. Promise. <3

      Funny because I meant to respond to this…a week ago! I’ve disappeared too so please don’t apologize. Life’s busy, especially this time of year. I miss my blog friends. I can’t believe you never went skiing or ice skating! Skiing I can understand because it’s a bit more involved but ice skating? You have to try it.

      Thanks! I realized after I posted this that winter doesn’t always equal snow depending on where you are. Can’t wait to cross some of these things off the list and share them too!

    Great idea! I need to start a winter bucket list otherwise the time flies by and I wish we would have gone sledding, skating, snowboarding, winter hiking, etc more. I’m 90% sure we are getting the kids out on the slopes this year. Or at least an attempt. :) *deep breath* I can do this!

      I was so worried about getting the kids on skis but I realized that I just needed to let go a little bit and just let them play around and have fun. I hope you do it. It’s pretty much the most adorable thing to see your little kids on skis.

    I *wish* I could go skiing, or heck – just see snow! It’s been about 10 years for both … I’m trying to change that!

    You’ve inspired me…again. I love to downhill ski. My husband isn’t much for it but I would love for the kids to learn. I know Nick is a little young, but Callia would love it. I really have to look into that this year!

      You should do it! Ed’s not a big skier either so I kind of feel like I need the kids on my side in order to justify trips to the mountains in the winter. Callia would love it!

    I am missing cross country skiing down here… and snow angels, and sledding… :( Maybe next year! We got a tree this weekend, mostly because we had a free afternoon and the next few weekends will be getting crazier. And we’re planning to make gingerbread people soon… maybe a gingerbread house, too!

    Well, I have yet to make one!
    Every year I create a list of local activities to do with the kids. This year we’re planning on seeing two plays; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the Nutcracker. Besides that, we have 2 1/2 weeks off school with nothing on the books. Yikes!

    I have a “Clean it Up” list for December! This list is comprised of all the things I need to do that I have put off day after day (clean the garage, insulate attic, get windshield fixed; you know, all those FUN things). These things build up and occupy the dark corners of my psyche in a way that doesn’t feel good and I want them out of my head for the New Year.

    However, one of my things to do this month is to enjoy Christmas. I usually work, work, work and end up missing out on the festivity of the season. Your list is a reminder of that. Thanks.

      Oh man, I have many of those “fun things” piling up and that are weighing on my psyche too. Maybe I’ll have to make a Clean it Up list too! I love that one of the things you’re focusing on this month is enjoying Christmas. I tend to do the same – work and rush right on through the holidays, trying to get through them rather than really enjoying them.

    I love your list, although I haven’t been skiing in years. I would add seeing Christmas lights to my bucket list. I love neighborhoods where everyone decorates their houses, it is so beautiful. There is a house near my in-laws that have the lights set up to blink with the music on a radio station, it’s amazing!

    What a great idea! A bucket list pinterest board.

    I have to admit…I don’t like the cold so much so I might take some time off from cardio and focus on building some muscle. My kids are grown, 21 and 17 yo at home, and they don’t like the cold anymore than I do. Hmmmm….wonder where they get it. So I’ll be doing a lot of baking with my youngest because we love to cook. Perhaps some winter recipes are in order.

      The colder weather definitely makes me want to bake and cook soups and stews and other warm, hearty meals. It’s funny but I actually don’t really care for the cold either. Hate it typically especially all the muck involved when you live in NYC and have to walk everywhere. However, I will put up with pretty crappy conditions in order to ski :-)

    What a great list! It is hard for me to imagine the snow (loved the pic though!). One day I will come to New York and have a cold Christmas! Then I can do some bucket list things with you! It is really hotting up over here – today on about 30 degrees celcius and I went surfing in my shorty wetsuit. The water was clear & warm and the dolphins came out to play. It will only get hotter from here on in, esp in Jan and Feb. Enjoy all your activities, Bron :)

      I would love for you to visit NYC! Enjoy your surf sessions and surf some for me please. My husband is headed your way for a very brief work trip and I was trying to convince him to go out for a surf while he’s there.

      • Bron
        December 10, 2012

        Tell him to get out in the water, he won’t regret it! Find a local surf school and hire a board or have a lesson. Or make it a team building activity with work mates! Everybody wins! B :)

    Great list. I especially like the snow angels one! Very excited that you get to ski again if that is one of your favorite things to do–it’s a great family activity. I am such a summer person, and not a winter person at all, but i need to change my attitude and embrace it–thanks for the reminder!

      Aside from skiing, I really am not a huge fan of the winter and cold. I guess this is my attempt to embrace it or at least to remember to have fun with the boys since they love the snow so much. With the snow angels. I’m determined to get down there and made some too instead of just taking pictures of the kids.

    I just found your blog through HappyFitMama. I love your winter bucket list. Also on mine is running in freshly fallen snow. I did a lot of that last December. Early morning runs that started out with a headlamp and me crunching through the snow. BTW when you run in the snow with a headlamp the snowflakes look like little lasers flying past your face. Random. But cool. Running in the snow makes me feel like I’m in a Robert Frost poem. So quiet. Peacful. Perfect.

    We just got a foot of powder over here. Every year, I tell myself I am going to try to go ski; I never actually have yet! My husband’s a snow bunny and wants to go every year. I went tubing at Big Bear last year…maybe I should finally rent some skis this season! If the budget allows, I think I will! :)
