I don't know about you, but it's in the boring, winter months that I love to cook the most. It seems to be a tradition of mine, every winter, to try a new dish - something I've never cooked before. So, why don't you try it? Pull out your cookbooks, and find something that appeals to you, then get to cooking!

3 Have a Girls Movie Night

So what if you're married! Kick the hubby out for a while and have a girl's chick flick movie night. Grab the popcorn and the chips, and scrunch together for a great movie! Paint each other's nails too! Having a relaxing evening with the girls is a great stress reliever!

4 Create Something

Go to the craft supply store (or Walmart) and stock up on craft supplies. Then try something new! You never know what creative things your brain can come up with on a cold, snowy day! And who knows, you might be the next millionaire inventor! But at least, you'll have something great to show off! My sister-in-law showed me her creation the other day - a cute pair of icicle earrings that she had made with clear beads and an earring set!

5 Start Valentine's Day Preparations

What are you going to do for your sweetheart this coming Valentine's Day? Don't wait until February 13th and run to the store for a cheap card and a bottle of wine! Start now and plan the best valentine's day ever! If you are really brave, you could try writing your own poem or song for your valentine! Or go get "boudiour" pictures made for him! Whatever you choose, start planning now! You won't regret it!

6 Make a Snowman

If you're lucky enough to get snow this January, make a snowman! Go all out! Build him big! Build him high! Or make a girl snowman complete with "girls" of her own! LOL! Or, if you have incredible talent, create something different like Yogi Bear or a snow angel or "Lightning McQueen! Food coloring makes for a really neat addition to your snow creation! Have fun!

7 Read a Novel

These days, it seems like the art of reading an old fashioned novel is fading away. People would rather "wait for the movie" or read ta great book online. I, however, choose to be old fashioned and read a real book! I love to snuggle in my "Snuggie" with a cup of coffee and read the evening away! I get lost in the book most of the time! Read! It's great!

Here's my list of things you should definitely do this month! Do you have anything you'd like to add to the list?
