Tell Us About It: Favorite Winter Activities & Memories

We're back! It's time for our monthly Tell Us About It link-up. Join me, Julie, and Katie as we discuss our favorite winter activities and memories!


First of all, I'm going to leave this post here. I shared some of my favorite Christmas traditions, and most of those are my favorite winter activities too!

I'll admit, I really procrastinated this post, so I'm just going to add a quick winter memory that I really love. In the Pacific Northwest, it doesn't snow every year. White Christmases are few and far between. The first (and only) white Christmas I ever remember having was a few years ago (five?). It snowed so much. The snow drifts on our deck were probably at least two feet deep (I know that seems like nothing to a lot of you, but it was crazy for us!). I distinctly remember that we put our champagne out in the snow drift to chill, which was genius.

  1. I love a white Christmas, but in Ohio we don't always get one (especially with the changing weather in the last 10 years). Our Jan./Feb. is usually pretty snowy, but this year it's been kind of warm. -sigh-

  5. That is crazy that you hadn't had snow on Christmas until that year! Ours is also hit & miss some years but that's fine with me, haha!

  6. I love snow on Christmas! Mostly because I'm usually staying home with my family anyway and don't have to travel in it. So we can just enjoy it while still staying warm! It was 60 degrees on Christmas this year and it just wasn't the same!

  7. That's a wonderful winter memory, especially since you don't get snow very often! And that idea is genius- the only time I've though to do that is with beer this winter lol.

  8. i don't think i have ever had a proper white christmas.. i could be wrong, but i don't think so. i've only had 4 christmases here and i'm pretty sure none of them had snow. but if i ever do, i'll obviously put my champagne in it. brilliant!

  9. That's one of the things that I'm absolutely dying to have at one point during my life, a true white Christmas! In Houston we rarely get snow, and when we do it's usually just a few flakes. We did get those flakes one Christmas Eve, and that's probably the closest we'll ever get to a white Christmas in Houston!

  12. I remember one time down here it snowed for christmas and by snow I mean we had an inch of frost....but we still enjoyed it and had so much fun. Anything like that is such a rarity so even if it was just frost it was a lot for us.

  16. It is hard to think of winter when it is stinking bloody hot, by that I mean temps in the 30's and getting around in shorts and tee shirts with either no shoes or thongs on ones feet because anything else would be too hot and my feet sweat so not nice

  17. Memphis hasn't seen a snowy Christmas since we've lived here so it's been awhile since I've had snow at Christmas! There is definitely something magical about it. :)
