24 Days of Togetherness

My man is not a big fan of Christmas. I, on the other hand, love everything about it. So I am on a mission to convert him into a Christmas loving fool. Last year, I really wanted to do the 24 Days of Togetherness, but it was just a little too early on in our relationship. Now he's stuck with me though, so this year we are doing it!

What better way to enjoy the season than to do some special together everyday. We came up with 12 things together, and then each came up with 6 on our own, that will be a surprise to the other person.

We are on our 4th day and having a blast. Our very first one, the day after Thanksgiving, was the best. We had to take a funny Christmas photo. It was R's idea so I let him set up the scene.

He thought it was funny for me to wear a business suit, for him to wear little shorts, and for both of us to wear animal hats. Sometimes, I don't want to know what is happening in his mind.

Poor Dixie didn't know what was going on. At the end, I made him also take one normal shot. 

I just love having the house decorated for Christmas! Day 2 we got to enjoy our tree and drink some hot cocoa by the fire. Have you tried Dunkin's salted caramel hot chocolate? It is amazeballs.

Yesterday was another one of R's- celebrate Kwanzaa. He decided that meant eat donuts. Always okay with me! And today- eat a Christmas treat. Good thing I know I put some active ones, like go sledding and go ice skating in there, to balance out the treats!

Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? Does your significant other feel the same way about the holidays that you do?

  1. Aww, what a fun thing to do! I love the goofy photos! :)

    I am in the spirit! My husband likes the holidays too, especially since he gets to cook fun foods for his family :)
