Cozy Winter Nights At Home

I know it's not every day we can just take off for a winter warm-up during the cool winter months like I did last weekend in Florida, but I will never complain about a cozy night at home. In the spirit of not hating winter, let's talk about what we can do during this season.

I am a huge fan of blankets. In fact, we have a basket full of blankets in our living room to enjoy at any given moment. I love wrapping up in a warm blanket and relaxing watching a movie on the couch. Target is the number one place for blankets in my opinion, I always find the softest ones there. But before you get too cozy, a candle must be lit. I have too many favorites, but I am really drawn to food scents (hi cinnamon sugar donuts and pecan waffles). 

Reading a book with a candle burning and no noise is ideal and wrapped up all cozy in a blanket is my ideal setting, second to poolside in the summer of course. Did you check out what I've been reading lately in last week's post? PSST- were you the winner of the Hello Lover book giveaway?!

Chuck, Ethan and I usually play a game or watch movie at least one night of the weekend. Our house favorite is Monopoly and usually ends in an all out war. I'm thinking we may need to have some Nintendo battles soon since we got the NES classic and Chuck put all the awesome old games on it--hello Yoshi's Cookie (tell me you remember it too).
Popcorn is always a must during our family nights and I tried my hand at making some homemade seasonings that I'll be sharing soon. One great idea is making a popcorn bar with a variety of toppings so each person can personalize their own bowl.
For the adults, spiked hot cocoa in a cute mug makes for a fun night. I love adding some marshmallow or cinnamon roll vodka to my hot cocoa to kick it up a notch....sooo delicious!
Of course Target has the cutest mugs again this season, only $5 for this adorable caffeine one I shared on Instagram.

In other fun news, Target shared my Instagram post on their Awesome Shop site last week, so that was fun to see!

Another fun thing we like to do is experiment with a new meal at home. Chuck and I love cooking together and lately have been perfecting our homemade pasta which has been a lot of fun and really delicious. Try something new have fun chopping and prepping a tasty dinner for you and your loved ones or your girlfriends.

Making the best of it during the winter months is a must for us Northerners, and it can be fun. I'm always looking for cozy new things to do inside.

How do you enjoy your cozy winter nights at home?
