All about advent calendars!

I know, I know it is Friday but I had a small surgery this week so today will count for my what I want Wednesday post!

This week I have advent calendars on the brain! I love Christmas and all things holiday but Drake made me promise to wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate, so I am restraining myself. I grew up having an advent calendar and looked forward to moving the little santa to the next space everyday, I still look forward to doing it when I visit my dad in December! We don’t own a calendar but I have big plans on making one so it will be all ready to hang on December first! I have scoured the internet for my favorites, some are DIY’s and others can be bought but they are all so great!!

As you can see all of my favorites leave spaces for little gifts etc. I plan on using things such as stickers or a few m&ms as well as writing out a special Christmas activity for some of the days! We don’t do the Elf on the Shelf because Presley is too young and I find it creepy haha, so this is a fun way for her to get excited everyday even if she doesn’t know what she is counting down to yet! Ill be back next week with a rundown on my favorite wreaths and stockings. As you can see I have Christmas on my radar! Stay tuned this week for Presley’s room reveal as well!
