Holiday Date Ideas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Whether you’re in a relationship or casually dating or committing to some single-time and looking to enjoy some Christmas cheer with your girlfriends, I have come up for a list for you to check off this holiday season!

  • Volunteer! – in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada…brrrr), we have an organisation that puts on a toy delivery for families in need. I did it this past weekend and it was worth every minute of my Sunday.
  • Sleigh ride – bundle up
  • Drive around and look at Christmas lights – go and look at the neighbours hard work
  • Christmas concert – whether it’s your children’s, a church, or one by the local theatre
    • Edmonton had The Singing Christmas Tree this past weekend and it was divine – if you’re in the area, add it to your TO-DO list for next Christmas


  • Christmas movie binge watch 
    • See my last post of Christmas movie recommendations here.
  • Ugly sweater Christmas party


  • Build a gingerbread house – do we ever get too old for this?

What are some things that you do for the holiday season?

Must-Watch Holiday Films

How I haven’t made this blog post in the history of my beloved blog is beyond me. I am a Christmas fanatic. Really. All November and December, I eat, breath and sleep Christmas.  So here, I present to you a Holiday watch list by a (self-proclaimed) professional.

Home Alone

  • No doubt to get a couple of laughs from the fam when you’re watching a much-cuter version of Macaulay Culkin.


Santa Clause

  • Tim Allen is like a Christmas movie king. He even stars in Christmas with the cranks as (once again), a grumpy old guy that finally sees Christmas spirit.



  • Oh Will Farrel…THANK YOU.
  • The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.


The Grinch

  • Did you know Taylor Momsen played Cindy Lou? Because I found that out like two years ago and it threw me for a loop. Still a classic though.


Step Mom

  • Okay, this is just one of my all-time favourite movies ever. Susan Sarandon and Julia  Roberts are: A) beautiful and B) guaranteed to make me ugly-cry. Every. Single. Time.
  • DO NOT FRET – this movie is not black and white.


Family Stone

  • Award winning cast who includes Diane Keaton (yes), Sarah Jessica Parker (double yes) and Luke Wilson (drool). Oh, and also will MOST DEFINITELY make you ugly cry.


The Holiday

  • You don’t have to ask me twice about that Christmas fettuccini, Kate. A wonderful and heart-warning drama about love, friendship and the holiday’s.


What Christmas movie are you settling in with for a long winters nap?
