Notes From the Nest

by | From the Nest

I have to say, normal and boring are underrated!  Anyone else out there who is thankful when they have just a regular week?!  However, the content I enjoyed sharing this week is definitely not boring, in my opinion, anyway!  I had a lot of fun sharing with you so let’s recap the week together!

I hope you enjoy the Notes From Our Nest this week!

Around Our Nest:

  • We’ve had such pretty weather this week with breezy days and I am so thankful!  Even though it isn’t the amazing “fall” that our northern friends have, we are so thankful when we get out of the 90s on a regular basis!
  • I may or may not have got the Christmas bins out of the attic to start organizing this week!
  • It is seriously hard to believe that October is almost over.  It’s been a really unusual and crazy month around here and it has flown by!
  • My class at school had our field trip to the pumpkin patch this week.  It was adorable and fun and exhausting!  Haha!
  • It finally felt like a real fall weekend at home.  We’ve enjoyed some shopping, grabbing treats, stocking up the pantry, and of course, some decorating!  I took full advantage of my willing and excited “team” at home to help with some Christmas prep!
  • And last but not least, our two younger kids hosted a car wash party for a fund raiser at their school.  Lots of water was used!

Around the ‘Gram This Week:

  • A little quieter week on Instagram because it was a busier week on the blog!  What can I say?!  I’m a mom and full-time teacher.  I usually have to focus on one or the other!
  • However, I loved sharing what I could on IG this week!  On THIS post, I shared how I used the free printables from my blog post to create a Thanksgiving tablescape.  That tablecloth is my latest obsession, by the way, and I’m leaving it out for Christmas too!

Around the Blog This Week:

  • Loads of fun on the blog this week!  If you aren’t a subscriber, I’d love to have you subscribe HERE!  I often share things on the blog before they make it to social media and then certainly a lot of things that never make it to social media!
  • On THIS post, I have free printables and a Thanksgiving challenge you can enjoy!  Get it printed out and ready to enjoy for November!
  • Over on THIS post, we finally got a big request fulfilled: You can find 3 great playlists for the fall and Thanksgiving season.  These are perfect to enjoy around the house or to have for your Thanksgiving dinner music!
  • THIS post was super fun as I played around with some Thanksgiving decorations!  Get several super easy and fun ideas of how to use feathers in your Thanksgiving decorating!
  • As always, Friday Favorites are super fun!  This week was all about hostess gift ideas and there are some really, really good ones all linked up for you.  I had fun coming up with some budget-friendly ways to put together the cutest hostess gifts!

Around the Storefront This Week:

I am adding more and more gifting ideas as well as Christmas decorating favorites over on my storefront!  I absolutely love finding pieces that I can use in different ways and in different rooms around our home.  You all loved some of my very favorites this week too!

  1. I just love THESE for both Thanksgiving & Christmas!
  2. If you’re looking for a hostess gift this season, look no further.

You can check this list on my storefront.  I update it daily with favorite deals that I think you’ll love too!
