31 things to do before December 31st

I love lists. I love making lists and following lists. I love creating New Year’s resolutions and checking off goals. That is why when I recently stumbled upon this post on the Kate Spade blog, I knew I had to do this.

31things
1. trim the tree. add tinsel.
2. put a twinkle in someone’s eye.
3. treat yourself to a new shade of lipstick.
4. sit by a roaring fireplace surrounded by s’mores-in-progress.
5. go ice skating.
6. drink a hot chocolate. (well, more than one.)
7. make your january 1st resolutions. now break them while you have the chance.
8. decide what your favorite champagne cocktail is.
9. spend a rainy or snowy day writing your holiday cards.
10. organize dinner with old friends.
11. fall in love with a party dress.
12. fill your apartment with fresh flowers.
13. get a glitter french manicure—try rose gold glitter polish with black glitter tips.
14. then, get a glitter pedicure.
15. leave a little sparkle wherever you go.
16. make a new playlist of re-mixed holiday tunes.
17. master your mom’s mashed potato recipe.
18. host an arm party: stack on the sparkly bangles for a night out.
19. sneak a kiss under the mistletoe.
20. see the lighting of the christmas tree at the metropolitan museum. (it’s in the medieval wing.)
21. pick this year’s wrapping paper:
black and white stripe paper with metallic bows…shades of pink…shade of metallic…
mixed metallics…matte paper with glitter ribbon…
22. try something new. glitter tennis shoes?
23. host a cocktail party and don’t even think about cleaning up till the next day.
24. make time for a little dancing during your pre-party prep.
25. take a stroll (or drive) through your favorite neighborhood after dark and enjoy the twinkling lights.
26. dazzle everyone at the office holiday party.
27. go somewhere you can wear a fabulous masquerade ball mask.
28. take the long way home from a party, just to wear your dress a little bit longer.
29. make a snow angel.
30. open one present early. (it’s totally ok.)
31. dance till dawn.

How perfect is this? And best of all, if I get started with this list today I will be able to complete it just in time for my 25th birthday (December 22, woot, woot!). I will document the progress of my checklist on Instagram and Twitter with the tag #31thingskatespade, feel free to check it out and come up with ideas.
Is anybody else following any other fun lists this season? What would be another fun thing to add to this list?
