First and foremost, we hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. Now that Christmas is over, the next big holiday upon us is New Year's Day. New Year's can either be highly anticipated or anxiously dreaded depending on whatever situation life throws at us.
In case you're a single mother who is spending the holiday alone this year, check out this list of things to do to make the most of your New Year's alone.
Go to the movies - How many movie theatre visits this year were spent watching the newest children movie? If your answer is above four, it may be time for you to see a not-so PG 13 film.
Go pamper yourself - Yeap. You read that right, go and pamper yourself for the day. New Year's is the perfect day to start your year off with a little TLC. Schedule a manicure, a massage, a hair appointment, a facial consultation, or even get your makeup done.
Plan a dinner party - Do you love to cook? Okay, well what if you love to eat? Whether you consider yourself the next Rachel Ray or are more hands-free in the kitchen, try putting together a dinner party. This can be a great way to try a new recipe you saved on Pinterest and get the family together for the holidays.
Speed of spring cleaning - Why wait for spring to clean out that coat closet (that has everything but coats) when you can do it NOW? You're probably thinking that New Year's Day is all about throwing caution to the wind, but cleaning can be fun too! We all have a space or two in the house that can use some decluttering.
Take a New Year's trip - You've spent a lot of time (and money) making sure the kids had an adventurous year. Now it's time to return the favor and plan a mommy trip. Gather some fellow mommies and plan a New Year's trip for just the girls. What are some places you've been desiring to go but couldn't find the time? It's a new year, GO!
Cheers to the new year!
