10 Things I'll Definitely Be Doing This Christmas...

source
If there's one thing I'm a sucker for, it's got to be Christmas! It's my absolute favourite time of year and for me, the festivities always start as early as possible... or as early as Scott will allow me to start them. Our apartment is already sprinkled with fairy lights and every time I hit the shops, I come home with a new decoration to slot on my already brimming shelves. I have no shame girls and boys. 

So to get us all into the festive spirit, I thought I'd write a list of all of the things that I'll definitely be doing this year at Christmas. Do any of them sound familiar?

 ♥ Eating so much chocolate that I develop the shakes then swear I'm off chocolate until the New Year

 ♥ Have an emotional moment listening to the Pogues - Fairytale of New York and shed a tear onto my half-eaten mince pie

 ♥ Spill gravy on my Christmas jumper

 ♥ Force my Fiance to watch every Christmas film known to man, even the lesser known ones too!

 Realise that my advent calendar only goes up to the 24th of December and have a diva moment about it because, you know... I really do need that piece of chocolate on Christmas morning

 ♥ Wondering at what point I became such an adult and forgot all of the words to Away in a Manger

 ♥ Hiding the fact that I've spent as much money on Christmas presents for my pets as I have on my parents

 ♥ Drinking, bathing in, brushing my teeth with Baileys

 ♥ Tracking Santa's sleigh online and being too excited to sleep on Christmas Eve

 ♥ Feeling no shame whatsoever at eating my third turkey sandwich, half an hour after my Christmas dinner


Who else is super excited for Christmas this year?

  9. I was so excited to decorate the house to the brim this year as I haven't been properly home for a Christmas in ages. Talked about it all year - and guess what, I haven't started yet! Lol. Haven't made a single decor-related purchase. :/
