It's right around October when you wake up and see that beautiful white blanket covering the earth surface. The windshields are covered with the first frost of the season and the chill in the air is just enough to create a fog when you breathe. WINTER IS HERE.

So now that going out in cute dresses and heels is a bit more dangerous (considering the ice-covered sidewalks), and football season is over, what is a girl to do for fun?

While the winter season tends to leave many feeling more comfy and cozy... like I'd rather stay in, watch a novella, and curl up by the fire with my man, there are so many fun things to do around this time that you simply have to experience a few.

1. Movie night in 

So, while this is meant to encourage you to get out and have fun, who can deny that a quiet night in, snuggled up on the couch isn't the perfect kind of night? Not me. So defiantly. Find some awesome holiday movies, pop some corn, do up the hot chocolate with all the marshmallows in the world, and enjoy.

2. Game night 

Host a game night. Invite those special few for a night of Monopoly, LIFE, UNO attack (my personal favorite), cups, beer pong, cards against humanity, anything that'll liven up the party. Get people to pitch in for snacks and you got another fun night in with friends.

3. DIY gifts

While this may seem strange, there are so many art studios that offer poetry for paint. Go in, find your piece and go crazy with the colors my friend. Do it up real good, then gift it to Mom and Dad for Christmas. So fun.

4. Go see Christmas lights 

A MUST. Take a stroll through your town. Find those areas with never-ending neighborhoods, the ones you KNOW are popular during Halloween. See while I was growing up, finding the Christmas lights was never an issue for me. My family and I lived next to the KING of Christmas decor. You think I'm joking. IM NOT. (Pictures for proof?) the guy was on the front page of the city newspaper every year. But, there's something about Christmas lights. Maybe it's their color, or their pop and flare, maybe it's just the way they make you feel. That holiday spirit jumps out at you in bright red and bright green bulbs and honestly, it's just great. GO SEE THE LIGHTS.

5. Tree farm

While not all tree farms are marvelous, most of them offer much more than just trees. Some are completely tailored to target the young crowd of Santa clause seekers. Which means there's cider, cookies, popcorn, fun decorations, trees (of course), and Santa clause will probably be there. Make a day of it. Go with your buddies, check out the farm, get some hot cider and maybe even say hi to old Saint Nick.

6. Go to the theater 

For some reason, the movies are always more magically around this time. Depending on what's playing, the entertainment industry always saves the best movies for the holidays. Take advantage.

7. Bake 

I mean duh, right? Cooking around the holidays is always so fun. Sugar cookies are the best for this time of year. Doing them up with all the frosting, sprinkles, and sugar you can. Christmas themed of course. There's so much to choose from, cakes, pies, cookies, muffins, spend your afternoon going crazy in the kitchen.

We are officially in the middle of winter and I believe a lot of people are feeling the same way that I am... completely sick of it. I've lived in New England my entire life and it never gets easier. I'm always freezing and miserable in the winter, just waiting for it to end.

If you are like me and are so sick of winter, then here are few things you can relate to.

1. You don't get out from under your covers until the very last minute possible.

No where feels cozier or warmer than under your covers, making you not want to get out of bed ever.

2. You have looked into moving somewhere warmer and have been 100% serious about it.

The south looks very appealing right now.

3. You don't even try to dress or look nice.

It's so cold out that all I want to wear is giant sweatshirts and I'm going to be keeping my jacket on anyway so what's the point?

4. Looking at the weather on your phone or at the television is literally painful for you.

Too too too cold.

5. You only feel disgust when you see snow.

It's cold, wet, and gets in your way.

6. You avoid going out or making plans on extra cold days.

The battle between being social or being warm is very real.

7. You have a countdown of how many days until the first day of spring.

So close yet so far away.

8. Any day that is even slightly warmer than the average puts you in a great mood.

Nothing can go my way that day but if the weather is even a tad warmer than usual I'm completely happy.

9. You dream about the days when you can finally step outside without your face hurting and hands going numb.

I can almost feel the warmth of summer.


Don't fret my fellow winter detesters we're almost there! It's almost spring!
