The Twelve Dates of Christmas

I have to say that one of my favorite things of all time is getting a surprise in the mail. I was having a particularly poo filled day last week and then this little gem came in the mail from my sis and it was just what I needed. It's a deck of cards that gives you a Christmas activity to do each day. So fun! So this year in an effort to make Christmas less about the presents and more about the memories, we're going to be doing the twelve dates of Christmas. And we were thinking with our thinkers and thought, "Wouldn't it be so fun if you all did the twelve dates of Christmas with us?!" So here's the deal. I'm going to post three dates a week and show you what we did and then we'd love for you guys to do them along with us and of course you don't need to be married to do it, you can do it with your roommates, you boyfriend, you bowling team for all I care! And take as many pictures as your heart desires. Then at the end of the month send your date pictures in and I'll share of all the fun date pictures with all of you. What do you think?? Are you in?!

Here are the three dates for this week:
1. Find the perfect Christmas tree and decorate it.
2. Do a good deed. 
3. Light a fire (and snuggle up)

I'll be posting the what the activities are for the week each Monday and then share pics with you of our dates later in the week!

Ready. Set. Be jolly!


  1. Your sister is too sweet! :) Those pictures are pretty!


  2. Oh what fun! Can't wait to see what the other activities are. So far I've done all of these! Yay! ;)

  3. This is such a great idea. I think boyfriend and I will be participating.
    Also, just wanted to say that I've been reading your blog for a while, but have never commented. It's awesome! Your posts definitely add a bright spot to my day :)

  4. And it just made my day to hear the package came on a day when you needed it! I agree, nothing is better than a surprise in the mail. We've been doing them too- maybe I'll take some pics and send them to you too!
