    I'm still so baffled that Christmas is a week away. We're going to be soaking in every minute of it this last week lol! Happy Friday chica πŸ™‚

    My big plan to get fully immersed in Christmas is to take a long drive all around town to look at all the lights and blast Christmas music while I do so. It never fails to make me feel really into the holidays!

    I haven't watched any Christmas movies yet and that makes me sad! I'm planning to change that over the next week πŸ™‚

    We tend to do Xmas stuff from Thanksgiving on, so now we are winding down a bit! The only things left on our bucket are to watch the Polar Express and drive around and look at Xmas lights (and celebrate Xmas itself, of course!)

    I almost feel like that happened to me this year! I feel like Thanksgiving was just the other day and now it is Christmas! I have been watching Christmas movies with T though lately and LOVING them!

    This is so perfect and I will definitely be cramming some of those things from your list into my weekend! πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend, lady!

    THIS! Is exactly how I feel most years, but especially this year! It's like the entire holiday season went by before I could really enjoy very much of it. Going to try and do as many things as possible in this week left πŸ™‚

    Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the year. (Halloween is a close second!) Some years I really, really feel like I totally missed the Christmas cheer train, but this year I'm feeling pretty good. These are excellent ways to get into the Christmas mood!

    I love this list! Because seriously…how is it already the week before Christmas?! Why does this time of year fly by?!

    We're going around to look at Christmas lights tonight, and I'm a little too excited. Okay, time can hurry up to go ahead and get to tonight πŸ˜‰

    I love this because I actually 100% feel like I'm missing out this year. We haven't decorated yet, and I'm only buying for my little sister, not even for my fiance. I like the idea of putting #2, #4 and #7 together. So now my plan for Xmas Eve is to bake something while watching Elf and throw #3 in there by lighting the perfect candle πŸ™‚

    Love this list! I think it's important to fit in the things you want to do and what makes Christmas feel special for you and your family, rather than doing things just because others are. Thanks for sharing!

    Seriously… where did December go??? I had such good intentions on November 30th!

    Excellent ideas! I will definitely be doing at least some of these in the coming week!

    I love you, because you're the one person who loves fall and Christmas as much as I do. It's A PASSION. And yet I still haven't managed to do everything I wanted to do, so I'll be all over this list.

    I feel like Christmas really snuck up on us this year! It doesn't feel like it's only one week away!

    I am SO with you that even though I start thinking about Christmas the day after Thanksgiving, it somehow seems to always sneak up on me. Especially living in Charleston now, it doesn't really feel cold enough to be Christmas!! We are going to look at lights tonight, and I definitely want to bake some cookies this weekend.

    Christmas really does sneak up every year! I love this list! We went to look at lights last night, and it was so much fun! πŸ™‚

    I love this so much. The holidays have flown by for me and sometimes, I feel like I'm really missing out. However, I will definitely be checking some of these off my list this week to really cheer myself up!

    I needed to read these tips today! I feel like Christmas came out of nowhere and I haven't been able to enjoy the season yet because I've been so busy!

    Loving this list so much! Time is flying by way too fast, and I want to be able to just stop and enjoy everything so I'm going to bake up a storm this weekend while listening to Christmas music <3

    Love this! Its so hard sometimes to fit it all in, like you said, and it just flies by so quickly. Its been so warm here, it hasn't even felt like Christmas so I haven't been doing my normal Christmas activities! Next week, this will be my go-to to really gear up for the big man to come down my chimney! xox

    I totally plan on getting in some xmas movie marathons in this weekend. I watched Elf already, that movie is a given for me. Love!

    This year I feel like I have really embraced Christmas, I've done so many Christmas-y activities. In the past I've felt like I missed out on Christmas and it definitely made me sad. These are great suggestions for embracing Christmas in a week!

    This is a great post! Christmas has come up so quickly this year! I feel like I have gotten in some Christmas fun, but I can't believe we have less than a week to go! I have Christmas music on 24/7 and need to catch up on watching my favorite Christmas movies!

    Ha, I love this! This is one of the few years that I really feel on top of everything. Organization has helped me try to fit everything in, but that doesn't mean I have suffered some ridiculous amount of anxiety over it all!

    I love this because I can totally relate. The time really does go by so quickly, and I feel like I never do all the things I wanted to do! Love the idea of just throwing a casual, impromptu holiday party, I should do that!

    Such great ideas to get yourself in the Christmas spirit! If it smells and sounds like Christmas, you're definitely going to be in the spirit! I also love the idea of reading the Christmas story! Such a great idea to take a moment to slow down and enjoy the season!

    December 21st, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    I so needed this! I've definitely been feeling like I missed the entire seasonβ€”which is a bummer, since it's my favorite time of year. Thanks for the great ideas!

    I'm watching lots of Christmas movies this week, because I haven't watched many this year. I'll be watching next week too. I tend to celebrate into the new year a bit because… why not? I feel like I start late, so I get to celebrate late too. πŸ™‚
