Notes From the Nest

by | From the Nest

What a fun week!  I love the Thanksgiving holiday and we truly enjoyed so much wonderful family time with both extended family and our little family of 5 too.  These intentional times of making memories and being together are an incredible blessing.  Even though we are ready for a quiet and restful Sunday, our hearts are full.  And so are our stomachs.  But hey, Thanksgiving only rolls around once a year, right?!  We hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving as well!

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

Around Our Nest:

  • Somehow, the kids and I survived 2 1/2 days of school before the Thanksgiving break.  Haha!
  • We enjoyed Thanksgiving Day with extended family and my girls made delicious pumpkin pies to take to our family dinner!
  • After Thanksgiving, we had so much fun on a little family trip to central Florida.  We cut down our own Christmas tree, which was a first for us.  Of course, Harrison had a BLAST doing this!
  • Then, we went to the Charlie Brown Ice Exhibit at the Gaylord Palms Hotel.  It was SO fun…and very cold.  Ha!
  • My kids suffered through pictures with Santa.  Let me just say…the baby years are hard because they are kind of scared of Santa and the older years are hard because they are much too cool for such things.  But, I got my picture.  #winning!

Around the ‘Gram This Week:

  • Over on Instagram, I had fun sharing some great sales from the week in stories.  So many of you snagged some great deals, especially on home and Christmas decor!  As always, when you shop through our links, it supports our family’s small business and we appreciate it so much!
  • On THIS reel, I shared how I styled the long apothecary cabinet in our music room.  I hope it gives you some fun ideas and inspiration for styling console and sofa tables in your own home.  Plus, there are some tips in the caption about what to do when you get “stuck” with your decorating!
  • Then, on THIS reel, I shared a fun little tour of our Christmas tree.  No, it’s not a designer tree with perfect ribbon and coordinating ornaments.  However, I think it’s perfect.  It represents our family and years of special memories!  That’s the best of all!

Around the Blog This Week:

It’s been quiet around the blog this week for the Thanksgiving holiday.  However, Friday Favorites was super fun!  I shared all of my Black Friday favorites, both things I have and love and things I ordered this year too!  Most of them are still on sale, so check it out HERE!
