Showing you how to have a simple and intimate Valentine’s Date night at home with these free printable conversation starters.
Sometime in my early 30’s I started to prefer day dates or even date nights at home. Once we had kids, it sort of became our Valentine’s Day tradition to do something at home as a family, either breakfast for dinner with my red velvet waffles (click here for recipe) or fondue night. I love celebrating with the kids although usually it’s anything but romantic. 🙂
So I was inspired to create this simple Valentine’s date night at home and these printable conversation starters. This will sure fill up your love tanks and make you feel more connected. <3
So put the kids to bed, and cozy up around some fondue and enjoy some intimate conversation, just the two of you! 😉
This Christmas bucket list is the ultimate way to celebrate the whole month of December plus I’m sharing some free printables for the kids.

Every year one of our traditions is to go drive around and look at Christmas lights. There are a few neighborhoods we frequent that always have a big spectacle. We get the whole family in the car including the dog, grab some hot chocolate and go for a drive.
This year I thought it would be fun to put together a little scavenger hunt to get the kids involved and make it into a game.
We drove around until we crossed everything off on our list.
So here’s your cue to go check out some lights and have a Christmas light scavenger hunt with the whole family.
I was never really one to go out on New Year’s Eve. Even before kids I would much rather stay home in my pajamas, get some takeout and watch the ball drop from my couch. Now I’m lucky if I can make it til midnight. Below I’m sharing 6 fun ideas for your New Years at home! There’s mocktails, slime and a free printable and more!
Here are 6 fun Ideas to Ring in the New Year at Home
1.) Have a smorgasboard- instead of a fancy dinner, do a bunch of appetizers. To me it feels more indulgent to have an array of picky foods. Set up a grazing table or a big charcuterie board. We also will do fondue and a few things from Chinese takeout.
3.) Festive mocktails – apple cider and gummy bears, milk and cookies, the sky is the limit! Here are a few of my favorites we’ve done. Click for this fun cotton candy drink. Or make milk and cookies fun by dipping the rims of glasses into marshmallow fluff and then sprinkles!
4.) Make a vision board or write out your intentions. – I have been doing this for a few years now. I usually pick a word for the year and then right out all of the things that I want to accomplish or manifest. I keep it visible right on a board in my office and look at it daily. It’s amazing the goals and things that I’ve been able to cross off.
5.) Make Disco Slime – Sure it’s a little messy but the kids loved it! Check out the easy directions below:
3/4 cup glue
1 1/2 tbsp contact solution
1/2 tsp baking soda
In a bowl mix together glue and contact solution.
Sprinkle in baking soda and a few splashes of water. (I didn’t measure the water but add more if you want your slime to be more stretchy.)
Sprinkle in glitter and mix together.
The slime solution will start out really sticky at first but the more you mix it will come together.
Add some contact solution to your hands before working the slime so that it doesn’t stick as much. The more you play with it it will become less sticky.
I usually store in an airtight container for a few days.

We recently had new neighbors move in next door and I wanted to bring over something to welcome them to the neighborhood. I think it’s worth noting when you’re putting together a housewarming gift, it doesn’t need to be expensive. Something homemade or specially wrapped I think feels like you put more time and care into it and feels special. I’m showing you how to create a thoughtful housewarming gift.

How to create a thoughtful housewarming gift
1.) Start with your vessel
I think baskets or decorative trays are a great place to start and nice way to deliver your gift.
I found a similar one to the one I used at Target.
