Today, I have one of my district instructional coaches meetings, and everyone is supposed to wear a tacky/ugly Christmas sweater. I didn't have one, so I bought this beauty at Wal-mart yesterday.

Ok, let's get on with the post! As has been the trend around here, I'm linking up with the DC Trifecta bloggers (Courtney, Cynthia, and Mar) with a Friday Five post!
This week's topic is Favorite Winter Activities.
1. Looking at Christmas Lights
Particularly around Christmas time, I LOVE to bake! The sweet treats make great gifts to give to a larger number of people, and I have a lot of fun trying out new recipes along with my go-to ones. Some things I particularly love to make around Christmas time:
Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies
3. Traveling to see Family
4. Hiking/Going to see Manatees
5. Cooking Warm, Hearty Meals (mostly by using the Crock Pot)
Even though it's not that cold in Florida, winter time always makes me want warm, hearty meals. I find myself using the Crock Pot a lot in the winter, since most meals I make int here fit that description perfectly!
Chicken and Dumplings (pictured above)
Simple, Savory Pot Roast
Cheesy Chicken and Rice
This post makes me want to do all of those things this week :) I hope y'all have a great weekend! We'll be doing some relaxing this week in preparation for all of our holiday travel. See you on Monday!
Question for you: What are your favorite winter activities?
