DECEMBER without shopping

December was amazing! I absolutely LOVE Christmas, and all of the holiday festivities that go along with it.  I celebrated the season as much as I could throughout the month, yet it always seems to go by too fast.  Here is what I did in December that did NOT involve shopping:

got drinks with my friends and our mothers at the new Hilton downtown in Columbus

made my FAVORITE chicken recipe {recipe here}

got hot chocolate and egg nog white chocolate treats at Le Chocoholique in the Short North

played outside with Kramer in the blizzard that hit Cleveland

went on a post-Christmas family vacation to New York City

Happy New Year!

  5. I'm so impressed with your willpower over the festive period. I try so hard not to shop. I really do try... But I look for other people and before I know it I'm buying "just in case" presents. These are really presents for me, but I will only open and use them after Christmas has passed. Insane, I know, but well done all the same!
