Winter, The San Diego Way.

Freezing my SoCal butt off in Lake Tahoe a few years ago
+ Go ice skating on the beachfront ice skating rink at the Hotel Del Coronado. The very best part? A portion of each ticket purchased will go to the Make A Wish Foundation! Sweet right? :-)
+ Light the Hanukkah candles every single night of Hanukkah
+ Grab some hot chocolate and take a night time walk (or 3 night time walks) around Balboa Island to see the Christmas lights reflecting on the water. They are my absolute favorite and are so worth the trip up from OC. (Mom, Dad smile...you know my main reason for coming to OC is to see you, but the Balboa Island Christmas lights are an added bonus =P)
+ Play in the (fake) snow at Sea World.. hey when you live in San Diego you can't be too picky about the realness of the "snow" you play in. =P
+ Play in some real snow
+ Pick a particularly warm day and lay out at the beach. ;) Have I mentioned I love San Diego hehe
+ Decorate for Hanukkah. Yup there will be multiple menorahs, dreidels, and Hanukkah gelt around these parts.
+ Taking time to be thankful and appreciate my 2 weeks off of work
+ Read 3 books
+ Spend more time cuddling on the couch with my man and a good book... or the TV =P
+ Go snowboarding, and try to avoid breaking my tail bone again any bones.
+ Celebrate Hanukkah with my family
+ Make a gingerbread house that actually stays upright. I know, I know I'm Jewish and didn't grow up making gingerbread houses, but there's gotta be some secret trick I never learned. How do you keep those babies from falling over??
+ Take time to exercise at least 4 times a week
+ Visit Candy Cane Lane in Poway. I may or may not be reallly picky about Christmas lights , but Candy Cane Lane has the best Christmas light display in all of San Diego.

What's on your winter to do list? 

Have a great day friends

Hmm I never really thought of what I should do this winter. I am moving. But I finally get to enjoy Christmas in my own house. And when it snows I can walk and take pictures!

Drink hot chocolate & watch Christmas movies in my 1st home is honestly what I'm hoping for.

And gingerbread houses are so much fun. go for it!

Hanukkah decorating gets me SO frustrated! There's always, like, the one little aisle with blue and silver things, and that's it. I've started doing more "winter" decorating with Hanukkah pieces thrown in because otherwise I feel marginalized.

....but it's entirely possible I'm overthinking this. haha!

Ummm I've never been to Candy Cane Lane! Please let's go together! Brian can drive so we can stare at lights.

Great list. I'd never heard of Candy Cane Lane. My husband mentioned there was something similar in the La Mesa area so we may do either one. I will def be enjoying my long winter break and getting in some exercise.

you should check out christmas card lane in PQ! people have massive christmas cards in their front yards. the weekend before christmas, they usually have horse drawn carriages and people selling hot chocolate and usually a guy dressed as santa.

Peppermint mochas, admiring Christmas lights and ice-skating =)

No fair! I was just telling my husband this week how badly I miss walking candy cane lane!

We love Christmas in San Diego! Ice skating in front of Hotel Coronado IS the best.

what a great winter list! I'm hoping to work out more often too - except I'm only aiming for 3 times a week.

Also, if you're interested in taking time to be thankful, check out the post I did today. It is all about actively being thankful for the little things each day
