all things New York and is passionate about healthy living.

12 Things I'm Looking Forward to this December


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Also the most hectic, busy, slightly stressful. I love, love the holiday season especially now that I have kids. My girls love everything about the holidays and we really do pack a lot of cheer into this next month or so. Here are 12 things I am looking forward to this December:

Michelle Obama is my spirit animal. I may weep tears of joy when I hear here talk this weekend.

I reserved two gingerbread houses to decorate this year so there will be no fighting over which gumdrop goes where!

This NYC icon just reopened and I can’t wait to take the girls. On a Monday. When the crowds are hopefully scarce??

Ever year since Hermione was two I have taken her to The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center just like I did with my mom growing up. It’s my most favorite holiday tradition of them all!

We love the Grinch and I cannot wait to see Gavin Lee’s take on him!

I plan on making multiple visits to this new accu-mazing oasis to keep me sane through the holidays.

I am hosting Christmas Eve dinner for the first time this year and have outsourced the cooking! Whew!

Mary Poppins + Lin Manuel = holiday movie perfection.

I put these pretty and functional winter boots on my XMas list. I hope Santa (err Doug) gets them for me!

I’ve seen this trio all over instagram and finally decided to try it ahead of being in a bathing suit on vacation. Bottoms up!

We are going to Disney World for New Year’s and I may be more excited than my girls! I’ve been planning for months!

Waking up Christmas morning and opening presents with girls and Doug. Pure joy.
