Silver Holiday Tinsel

Holy moly!

We are down to the last 30 days of the year, and if anyone else is on the struggle bus #because2021, it’s not too late to make the most of this wild and crazy year by whooping it up the best we can for the month of December.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost a year of my life so I’ve got a whole lotta’ “funning” to make up for.

In case you need an OrganizenMagan Dictionary refresher:



    1. the act of having fun and whooping it up

Example: Funning with her friends was her favorite activity.

So watch out December, I’m coming for you!

Actually, here in San Diego, we are in the dreaded “purple tier” of increased COVID cases, which ultimately means no group gatherings, no indoor social activities, no indoor dining, and a 10 PM mandatory curfew for everyone (not just teens).

So ramping up the “funning” is definitely going to be a bit more challenging, but I’m committed to making the most of the end of 2020 (Hallelujah, there is an end in sight) even if that means I’ve got to be home by 10:00.

Each year after Thanksgiving we sit down as a family and brainstorm things we want to do before Christmas, which we will of course do again this year.

Winter Bucket List

And because my fun tank is currently on “empty”, I want to take it a step further and also brainstorm a personal list JUST.FOR.ME, so I am also creating a list of Winter Fun ideas for me!

I’m definitely one of those people who lives for “to-do lists” so I created a Winter Fun printable to help me stay on track!

I plan to print it out, write down my goals, and put it on the top of my desk where I will see it every day!

This is an editable version below, so feel free to download it and type in your bucket list items to customize it for you!

Got mushy pandemic brain and need some inspiration?
