Nesting on this first Saturday of March.

I took a little time off of social media this week and I feel so refreshed! Also celebrating that I’m halfway through my second to last semester of school yayyy!!!

I just finished Inventing Anna on Netflix. And in true Shonda Rimes fashion, the characters were so well done I fell in love with bits and pieces of each of them, relating to every single one. And can we talk about what an amazing actress Julia Garner is?

I just bought the cutest St Patrick’s Day pajamas for the kids. You can see all of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day Finds here! 

Speaking of St Patrick’s Day, this Boozy Chocolate Guinness Milkshake is an oldie but goodie! I haven’t had it in a long time and I think I’m gonna switch it up and try with some mint chocolate chip ice cream this weekend!

If you missed it last week, I shared your Most Asked Home Questions. You can see them all here! 

This week’s Tip of The Week – There’s been so many issues on Instagram lately with people having their accounts hacked. If you haven’t already, go to settings, security and be sure to turn on two factor authentication!

 

Stay tuned next week for another recipe for St Patrick’s Day, tips for starting your garden and spring finds!

Nesting on the first Saturday of February.

Good morning from your crazy deer lady friend. If you haven’t been following my Instagram stories, we have been leaving food out for the deer in our yard. What started as one or two deer, (one that I affectionately named Jane Doe), turned into a huge herd. The boys love it and my camera roll is now all photos and videos of my deer babies 🙂

Did you watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony last night? I always get so choked up watching all of the athletes come in. You can feel their immense pride. Looking forward to watching curling, figure skating and downhill skiing. What’s your favorite winter sport to watch?

But I’m dreaming of spring and ready to start planning my garden. Stay tuned for some spring gardening posts.

Speaking of spring, this spring stamped book set is the cutest addition to your shelf or tray decor. Check it out in my Etsy shop.

Nesting on this subzero January morning-

I’m over here drinking my coffee pretending I’m lounging on a cabana in sunny Riviera Maya. Who’s with me?

But if the cold is your thing and you’re local to the Upstate area, The Ice Castles in Lake George open tomorrow! Tickets are on sale now! We went a few years ago to the New Hampshire location and it was beautiful – read about it here! Looking forward to visiting the NY one soon!

I finished the first book on my 2022 reading list, The Midwife’s Secret. I shared my reviews over in my Instagram stories. I’ll be saving them all to a highlight so you can go back and reference whenever you want. Now I’m starting Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover.

Have you guys heard of Wordle? One of you guys shared it with me and now I’m hooked! You have to wait 24 hours for a new game and it is addicting!

So many of you asked about this bag this week. Linking it here!

I shared this sweet and salty Valentine’s Popcorn recipe earlier this week. The boys are popcorn addicts and it quickly disappeared out of the bowl. But it would be a great treat for Valentine’s Day parties or just to munch on at home.

The first “Nesting” of 2022. So get a cup of your favorite warm beverage and cozy up.

Alexa told me this morning it’s 9 degrees, yikes!

We’re 8 days into 2022 and it feels like we’re getting off to a rough start if I’m being honest. This year I didn’t really have the energy to make resolutions or choose a word. This year my intentions are just to read more books, keep my family healthy and be a better mom and wife. And I’m perfectly ok with that.

Speaking of books, I made a list of 22 books I want to read in 2022. You can see them all here. Because there’s nothing better than getting lost in a book.

For breakfast this morning I’m making banana bread french toast. My homemade banana bread is a favorite and super easy to make. Also, with the pandemic, are we going to go back to making homemade bread again? Here’s the recipe.

We woke up to snow yesterday. Thinking of maybe taking the kids sledding this weekend. How cute is this inflatable tobaggan?

Another fun thing we like to do when we get fresh snow is make snow ice cream. We’ve been making it for a few years now. Click here for the recipe.

This week I started watching “Yellowjackets” on Showtime. It tells the story of a high school girl’s soccer team that’s stranded when their plane crashes and their lives 25 years later as people want to know about what truly happened. I just started episode 7 and it’s getting pretty creepy!

We also rented Sing 2 for our Friday Pizza Picnic. It is sooo cute and I’m obsessed with the soundtrack! My favorite is the new version of “I Say a Little Prayer For You” by Tori Kelley and Pharrell. You can hear it here.

In case you missed it, this week I re-opened my Etsy shop now that the holidays are over. If you’re looking for a customized gift or personalized piece of decor, go and take a look. I’d love to create something for you!
