Nesting on the last weekend in January.
We had a busy weekend. Back to back hockey (my boy got a hat trick!) snow tubing, and working on some things for Dude Man for school for his upcoming Valentine’s Day and 101 Day of School Celebrations.
I’m going to a Pajamas and Prosecco Galentine’s Event in a few weeks and bought the cutest pajamas. Don’t these look sweet for Valentine’s Day?
Ok now here’s what we talked about this week:
Those of you who have been here for awhile, remember when I used to do weekly meal plans? Well I’ve decided to get back to it! I’ll be sharing it in the weekly Nesting posts. So here is this week’s.

Wednesday – Dill pickle chicken salad with air fryer sweet potato wedges
Thursday – Slow cooker beef and broccoli
Friday – Pizza night

How is your year going so far? I have to be honest I have been slow to get back in the swing of things with blogging and just things in general around the house. I read this quote the other day and it perfectly summed up my feelings, “I’m wintering”. So I’m sharing here in case you’re feeling the same way and feeling guilty for being lazy. Give yourself some grace and allow yourself to go through the season of winter.
We got the best news over the holidays and I can finally share! I found out I am going to be an auntie in June! There’s a new little boy joining the cousin crew! We couldn’t be more excited for my sister and brother in law! They are just the cutest.

Nesting on this last weekend before Christmas.
We are officially 1 week away!!! How are you doing with your holiday have-to’s?
I had taken the day off on Friday to get some last minute shopping and wrapping done but the boys had a snow day. So we watched movies, made this snow ice cream and had a hot cocoa bar instead.
So looks like I’ll be wrapping this week while the boy’s are in school 🙂
This weekend we made our annual homemade Irish cream and planned our Christmas menu. We make homemade Irish cream every year to sip on Christmas day and it also makes great gifts! Click here if you’d like the recipe.
I picked up this adorable sled at a local farm store last weekend. Isn’t it so cute? At first I had it by the fireplace but I think I like it better out front. What do you think?
Here’s what I shared this week on the blog:
And a special announcement-

Nesting on this cold Sunday in December.
We are officially 2 weeks away from Christmas!!! We’ve got breakfast with Santa this morning. Tis the time of year for all the fun Christmas festivities and trying to squeeze it all in.
Last weekend we took the kids to the Polar Express. It was adorable and I had tears in my eyes the entire time. Does anyone else get like that when they do special things like this with their kids? It’s the best feeling.
Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I have a few more things to get. This was the top seller this week and makes a great gift idea!!!!
It was a fantastic week on the blog! Here’s what we talked about:
Has anyone watched the Harry & Meaghan documentary on Netflix? Part of me wants to watch it but some of the clips I’ve seen make me cringe. I just started the second season of The White Lotus on HBO and the new Wednesday on Netflix.
