Another month has flown past us, which means that I’m sharing a late post on 10 things I’m looking forward to now that it’s November. If you’re a Christmas lover like I am, you’re most likely soaking up all the Christmas festivities for the two months you have to enjoy it all. If you’re looking for a happy, light-hearted post, keep reading for little bliss in your life.
1| All. The. Layers!
Now that it’s November, it’s undeniable that we will be dressing in excessive layers for the late fall months. I will admit that I don’t mind busting out my sweaters and leggings for this time of year. I feel more comfy in clothes at the end of the year.
2| Expressing Gratitude
I’m working on spreading kindness and expressing gratitude for all the people in my life. If you’ve read my recent post, I’m challenging myself to do something kind or as an expression of gratitude all month long. It’s the season of giving back and sharing love.
3| Holiday Shopping
I make it my mission to get all my holiday shopping done before December. Now, I will admit that I don’t get every little bit of shopping done. But I try to get more than 90 percent of it done this month, and I can’t wait for Christmas shopping this season.
4| Christmas Music
You best believe I’m be blasting Michael Bublé’s Christmas album. (As I pretend I haven’t been listening to it already…) I don’t know what it is, but I am in the minority of people who love Christmas music. I only have two months to enjoy it, so I’ll be doing just that.
5| Starbucks Holiday Drinks
Y’all, Chestnut Praline Lattes are everything I want and need around this time of year. I try not to go overboard with my Starbucks visits, but I do treat myself a little more to these around this time of year since they are seasonal.
6| World Kindness Day
Mark your calendars for November 13th and do something kind because let’s be honest; the world could use a little more kindness. #amiright?! I have been challenging myself to do an act of kindness or show gratitude in some form throughout this month.
7| My Anniversary
Josh and I have been together for over three years! I’m happy to say after more than six months of living together, we couldn’t be happier. After being in an LDR for over two years, living in the same place has been a wonderful change. I’m looking forward to celebrating with him this month.
It’s the one day a year you can’t be judged for eating excessively. Even though I don’t care if people judged my excessive eating on a regular day. I’ll be eating stuffing and pumpkin pie until I can’t breathe; and I’m looking forward to all the pain and regret afterwards that will come from eating too much.
9| Black Friday
I’ve worked on Black Friday every year since I was 16, and I don’t hate it. At least this year I won’t be involved in the retail side of things, but more the marketing side of it, which I know will be fun and exciting in the midst of a crazy day.
Late fall and early winter is the time of year where I want to cook more, and learn and practice new recipes. I have saved quite a few recipes from Pinterest, and I can’t wait to try them out all month long. I’ll be sure to let you know which ones have been my favorites!
