Oh Friday, Let Me Hug You + Five Ways to Enjoy a Winter Weekend



1 Hot Chocolate and Christmas Lights hc

Find a bright neighborhood filled with homes with Christmas lights. Drive around, drink Hot Chocolate, listen to Holiday tunes, and soak up the moment. If you’re lucky, your city may have its own “Christmas Town.” Charlotte sure does!! Check it out here.


2 Christmas Movie Night

Put on pajamas and fuzzy socks, cuddle up, eat popcorn, and watch your favorite Christmas movies by the fireplace.

3 Christmas Cards for the Elderly

Make a batch of homemade cards {ask the kids to help} and deliver them to a nursing home. homemade-christmas-card-xrmu8rap

4 Paint Ornaments

Paint ornaments at your local pottery studio.


5 Bake Cookies

Gather a few friends and bake 5 different types of cookies. Place a couple of each type of cookie on a tray and deliver to neighbors.

my-plansThe Cutie and I are going to Raleigh to babysit our niece, Fallon, and I couldn’t be more excited. It gives the parents a night out and gives us BABY TIME.

All the FriYAY goodness,


P.S. Better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday. xx

  1. I love this post ! I’m actually doing numbers 1 and 2 tonight. I’m super excited! My boyfriend has never been to McAdenville and I can’t wait to see how much he enjoys it! I really love #3, that is such a great idea. Completed 5 last week.. now on to #4! Great list.

    1. Oh my goodness!! let me know how it goes. I can’t wait to go see McAdenville. The town pays their electric bills in December to encourage the light show. Amazing. I hope you have the BEST weekend girl! xx

  2. This post is making me so excited for the weekend because I for sure plan on doing at least 1& 2! I always wanted to paint my own ornament, I feel like that’d be such a good tradition to start!

  3. One of my favorite holiday movies is Family Man with Nick Cage and Tea Leoni. It’s a new tradition for Christmas movie watching.
