Notes From the Nest

by | From the Nest

Wow, what a week!  It’s a good thing that our family LOVES Christmas because it has been a week FULL of Christmas flurry!   I hope you enjoy the Notes From Our Nest this week!

Around Our Nest:

  • We have one night to go of the big community Christmas musical hosted at our church.  The audiences have been wonderful and all of our family is involved in one way or another, from singing to orchestra to drama cast!
  • Our family enjoyed our small town parade on Saturday!  Always festive and always hot!  Our cool weather left just in time for the annual sunburns at the Christmas parade!  Haha!
  • Totally a little thing…but aren’t we told to enjoy the little things?!  I’m having a lot of fun with my new Christmas cup!  ????
  • I can officially say that all Christmas decorating is complete at our home!  Of course, I’ll be having fun with table decor for parties and dinners, but the actual Christmas decor is done and we are enjoying the cozy, festive glow of Christmas around our home!
  • I have made great progress on wrapping gifts this week.  Woohoo!  I have a little shopping left to do but I enjoy it.  Did I mention that I love Christmas?!

Around the ‘Gram This Week:

  • I got to share some really fun parts of our Christmas decor with you this week!  Over on THIS post, catch a video tour of my cozy Christmas bedroom!  I kept it simple this year but it’s a peaceful and relaxing space to begin and end the days!
  • Over on THIS post, you can see a picture of our family room.  It was the inspiration behind the theme for our Christmas decor, which I shared on my home tour on the blog this week.  I’ll be sharing a video home tour this coming week, so stay tuned for that!

  • Over on THIS blog post, I share my favorite tips and ideas to create a cozy bedroom for the Christmas season.  You can transition many of these ideas right into winter too!  It’s the perfect time of year for an extra cozy space to end your long, winter days!
