Happy Monday everyone! Here are some handy/fun ideas to consider in this week's Weekly Blueprint:
December 6: Bring a new, unwrapped toy (to be donated to the Home for Little Wanderers) to Frog Pond between 3-4pm and receive a free ticket voucher to Disney On Ice's Treasure Trove at TD Garden, December 26-29. *UPDATE: This event has been relocated to DCR Steriti Memorial Rink, 561 Commercial Street, Boston.
December 7: It's National Cotton Candy Day (who knew?) and these local restaurants will celebrate with complimentary post-meal confections: BOKX 109 American Prime at Hotel Indigo (Newton) is offering apple, strawberry, and blueberry flavors, Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar (Boston) is serving sour apple cotton candy laced with cherry pop rocks, and The MET Bar & Grill (Dedham) is offering watermelon and cherry flavored cotton candy to all parties with kids in tow. Also, Towne Stove and Spirits (Boston) is serving maple cotton candy as a compliment to some of their desserts.
December 8: Revel in a starry night in New Bedford.
December 8: Celebrate Bodhi Day at Barefoot Books.
December 8-11: Support indie crafters at the Brookline Arts Center's Artist Marketplace.
December 9-11: And you can do the same at the Craftboston Holiday Show.
At your leisure: Is your teen in a band? Perhaps they want to consider competing to rock out to help sick kids at Children's Hospital.
At your leisure: Start a fitness program. Here are 11 easy tips to get you going.
At your leisure: Chip away at procuring holiday items -- start by shopping local!
At your leisure: If you're sending holiday cards, pull together photos (I'm doing this right now!). I figure it's OK if they arrive anytime before next winter! (Also, stay tuned, I have a fantastic giveaway lined up to help you in this department!)
At your leisure: In advance of all of those holiday photos, book a hair appointment. I was psyched that I remembered to book a hair cut this past weekend with my friend (and fabulous cut and colorist) Honey Jo this past weekend given that the next couples of weeks are totally packed.
