after the weekend: at home

How was your weekend? We had a good one! It was pretty quiet. It was dreary and rainy almost the whole time so we opted to stay in and take things easy.  We made food, Adam brewed beer, I read a book, and the girls played a lot.
Our Elf on the Shelf finally made his appearance (and brought two Advent calendars with him) and now Adri is on the hunt to find him (his name is Happy) as soon as she comes down the stairs every morning. 

I'm trying to slow down and drink in this season. I have a tendency to feel a little low in spirits as the sun hides (here in NY we go for weeks in Winter without seeing sunlight) and I'm trying to not fight it this year.
We light candles, read books, watch more t.v than normal, and take hour long showers (the two girls and I get in our huge upstairs shower). So far it's been a slow and steady uphill battle, but I'd like to think that I'm winning ;)

Don't forget that there are only 6 days left to enter my giveaway! There are not a ton of entries so your chance of winning are GOOD ;)  If you are looking for the perfect gift this holiday season for someone that you love, Jord doesn't disappoint!

Adri and I also worked on her new KiwiCo crate that she got this weekend. I've got to admit, I am NOT a subscription box person, but we LOVE KiwiCo and I feel like it's worth every penny. 
If you use this link you can get $10 off your first order, if you feel like giving them a try! 

We did have plans to go to playgroup today, but it's been canceled, which is actually fine with me since today is a busy work day and I have a lot to catch up on. 

Have a lovely Monday!
