Notes From the Nest

by | From the Nest

This.  Week.  Flew.  By.

Can I get an Amen?!  While the kids might be excited that we are so close to Christmas Day, the Christmas-loving soul inside of me is wishing the season would slow down!  I guess time flies when you’re having fun.  Time also flies when you’re a musician and there are more concerts and rehearsals in a week than there are days in a week.  😂

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

Around Our Nest:

  • This week and next are incredibly hectic for our little musician family.  I think it is safe to say that the world still craves and loves the hope and beauty and FUN of Christmas music, right?!
  • It’s a good thing I’m typing these updates instead of speaking.  My voice is so tired!  (As you’ve heard in the few IG stories I’ve been able to fit in this week!)
  • We are enjoying our DIY Advent Calendar so much.  Each day, we read “The Wonder of the Greatest Gift” by Ann Voskamp and the kids take turns opening the Advent box.  It’s a 5-7 minutes of each day that I treasure and moments that do help the season to slow down a little for me!
  • I am almost done with my gift wrapping!  Just a few more gifts to find and wrap.  I am thrilled to be ahead of the game, even if it’s just in this one little area!  Haha!

Around the ‘Gram This Week:

  • Even with a really busy week, I’ve had fun sharing over on Instagram this week!  I know your decorating is probably about done.  However, there are always those last minute things to do so hopefully these posts give you some inspiration!
  • On THIS reel, you can see about 15 or so of my favorite things to use for Christmas table decor.  You don’t need all of them, for sure, but a few mixed in can help you get those tables decorated quickly and easily!  You can also shop the post HERE, where it is all linked conveniently for you!
  • THIS post will give you ideas for some really quick and super simple centerpieces!  These could be used for a coffee table, like I did, or for a dining table or even a kitchen island for some sparkle!
  • I finally got a video version of my 2023 Christmas Home Tour ready for you!  You can watch it HERE.  I hope you enjoy a few moments of calm and peace in our Christmas home!

Around the Blog This Week:

  • For those Christmas tablescapes coming up soon, check out THIS blog post!  I shared 9 festive and easy candle centerpieces that you can quickly make for Christmas.  Plus, you can easily leave them out for winter decor too.  Win win!
  • Over on THIS blog post, I share tips and ideas for styling your coffee table for Christmas.  Even if your table is already decorated, be sure to save the pins to find easily next year too!  Or maybe it will put you in the mood to enjoy a few fun moments of restyling your current coffee table for the season!
  • This Friday Favorites is full of my favorite things: stocking stuffers!  Find 10 great ideas for stocking stuffers or small gifts to give this season…or treats for yourself!

Around the Storefront This Week:

If you’re anything like me, you are working on some shopping plus stocking up on some of the great deals floating around.  I always try to get things on sale when I can and there have been some great ones this past week!  Make sure to stay tuned to my Instagram stories where I share daily favorites (most days at least!) to help you catch the best sales too!

Here are some of the top sellers over on my storefront this week:

  1. These jingle bells are perfect for Christmas party favors!
  2. We read this Advent book every morning!
  3. I love these vintage-style cowbells!
  4. These add a sparkle around my house!
  5. And this ribbon is so so  pretty!

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