Holiday Countdown Planner {Week Seven}

We had a major snowstorm this week. Although it looks Christmasy outside, I’m not loving all of the shovelling I’m having to do! I was working up the courage to bundle up and head out into the chilly weather the other night (we’re talking -27°C), when I heard my neighbour using his snowblower on our driveway. I must make some extra cookies and take them over- bless his heart! My husband will definitely be in for a shock when he arrives home later this weekend to see the winter wonderland we have going on (he always knows the perfect time to go away on business)!

Needless to say, I didn’t get our front porch decorated yet. The tree is up, but I want to add a few more ornaments before I show it to you. If you’re just joining this year’s Holiday Countdown, you can catch up on all the details.

  1. Thanks for the shout out!  I love this idea of the weekly countdown!  It makes the crazy less crazy and you can spend more time enjoying the holiday!  I might be a little late, but I am using this this weekend!

    1. Yes, when I started it two Christmases ago it really helped out with the worry factor. Now if there is something I’m not feeling inspired to do, or just don’t have the time, I nix it and move on to the next week. It’s highly likely our front porch won’t get done with all this snow and how freakin’ cold out it is right now- oh well! 

  2. When we heard of the storm we changed our plans on Sunday and did everything we needed to do out front. I have a few decor items I want in the back that I am trying to convince Craig to do. Monday has a high of -6 so maybe you can plan to tackle a bit of the porch then, maybe reduced a bit. Loving your Christmas posts, makes me feel like I am right on track. Keep Warm!
