Hello my holiday friends! Today is… Day 4 of Blogmas and the holiday fun is still continuing full steam ahead. The boyfriend and I spent last night, after the stereotypical Friday night gym and grocery store run, watching The Polar Express and eating ice cream topped with Christmas sprinkles because #festive.
My boyfriend and I are both so busy that it can be difficult to get out of our typical routines and go out. But that is something that I want to work on, especially during the holiday season. I mean hellooooo- we live in New York and not even far from NYC. We have to take advantage of our amazing opportunities, so this winter, the boyfriend and I are going on adventures. So, with that, I have created my Holiday Bucket List: New York Edition. It’ll include some stereotypical holiday necessities, local Christmas fun, and some New York City must dos during this time of year. Some touristy-some not so much: the best of both worlds. I want to give some special thanks to Caroline, a local Manhattanite, for some of the NYC suggestions (go follow her on IG @eathealthytrainhard). I like to get tips from the locals who know all the ins and outs haha.
