Have a pizza party

Ok, we can all agree that having some warm, fulfilling food when it’s cold outside is the best antidote to those winter blues, and the good news is that you won’t have to go out and buy ingredients, or even leave the house, to get the best cuisine in town. With modern technology comes a new world of food, so check out some of the best meal prep services on https://budgetboost.co/best-meal-prep-home-delivery-service-review/ if you don’t want to move from the couch to get the best ingredients. Yes please!

 

Try some new recipes

Winter is the perfect time to try out that new recipe you’ve been thinking about for a while. There are plenty of winter warmers to try your hand at if you’re looking to make something delicious for your family, so don’t fret when it comes to what you could cook up. Not only will you have a great time making it, but your family and friends will love to do the taste test afterwards. Win-win!

 

Get creative

Ok, so not all of these are food-based, we promise. You can also spend some of your spare time in winter making some new home interiors, if you want to bring a new lease of life to your home and exercise your creativity. You can make your own cushion covers if you want to change up your living room or bedroom, and this cheap and easy idea could really make a difference in your house. Everybody will be asking where you got them from, and you’ll have a great, and unique, item.

 

Check out some new series

Winter is the perfect time to catch up on some Netflix series, or start binge-watching something new. Game of Thrones is perfect to set the winter mood, but there are so many new and exciting things to watch, you won’t be able to choose. Get the family together, get some popcorn, and get into some interesting TV. Losing yourself in a different world is a perfect way to get rid of those winter blues, and if you don’t fancy a series, you can always go with a classic Christmas film (we love The Grinch).

 

So, there are many ways to have a great time this winter, without having to leave the comfort of your home. Get yourself a fluffy throw, and your freshly made winter food, and watch something amazing with your family and friends. Have fun!

First Day Of School Traditions

My son will be will be starting PreK in 9 days! I cannot believe it, my baby has grown up so fast. I have been a stay at home mom since he was 2 months old. After my maternity leave was up, I went back to work for a day and that was the worst day ever. I couldn’t take being away from my baby. My husband a I discussed it and decided it would be best if I became a stay at home mom. When I returned to work the next day, I put in my 2-week notice and I have been a stay at home mom ever since.

I’m going to miss him so much, I told my husband to have the tissue ready the first few days of school because I know I will be crying along with my 2year old son. My boys are so close, they do everything together. I have been trying to keep my mind off him leaving me for 5 hours a day, so I started looking up ‘First Day of School Traditions’ to start with. I found some really neat ideas that I think we would enjoy doing every year.

Family Time!

I’ve been trying to find some ways to spend more quality time with my boys as a family. On my husband’s days off we usually do Charlie’s favorite thing, get ice-cream and go to the park. The park is fun, but I would like to have a variety thing to do while daddy is home with us. I found some great ideas Charlie may enjoy doing as a family and especially on days when daddy can join us. Some of these could easily become family traditions for us. Charlie looks forward to spending time with daddy on his days off, so I know he will enjoy doing any of these just as long as daddy is there to play with him.

 

 

  1. Go camping and let him pick out the snacks and games
  2. Take him to his favorite restaurant then laser tag
  3. Build a paper boat and let it sail in the pound
  4. Go see a movie at the theater
  5. Pajama party. Eat junk food and stay up late watching a movie in your jammies.
  6. Find a local park or pond where you can go fishing.
  7. After dark, head outside with binoculars and look at the stars
  8. Have a water gun battle in the backyard.
  9. Pack a picnic lunch and walk the trail at the park
  10. Pick out his favorite toy or something to build and go home and play with it together
