cozy cribs

How was your week lovely readers? Feeling all warm on the inside after having my mum here for a week has been absolutely wonderful.

Amongst the 800 cups of tea we consume daily, sadly not this kind, there's been lots of therapy shared: the emotional, the culinary and the retail kind :)

Call me crazy but most of our shopping {so far} actually took place before Thanksgiving... As far as I'm concerned Black Friday is reserved for one reason only, the slimming color and variety of stretch clothing you have to wear the day after consuming your weight in food! All jokes aside, the idea of waking up before dawn and screaming through shops to fight for bargains is enough to make me want to crawl deep under the covers and never get out!

Speaking of staying in bed, here's 10 fun things to do while curled up in my fav spot!

  1. Invite your girlfriends over {make sure they arrive in their pjs} 
  2. Give yourself a facial, complete with cucumber eye slices
  3. Write down the things you're grateful for on a stack of loose leaf paper and read one first thing every morning.
  4. Find that stack of magazines you hid behind/under your sofa and create an inspirational scrapbook {your dream home or dream wardrobe/style}
  5. Prank call boys
  6. TV watching marathon, load in your favorite tv show or movie and laugh and cry in all your favorite spots 
  7. Read, read, read
  8. Write, write, write
  9. Discover new music and rediscover old music and sing it out at the top of your lungs.
  10. Nap it out whenever you want, even if it's in the middle of any one of the above mentioned activities :)

Hope your week was wonderful! This week I'll be back in full force sharing lots of delish holiday recipes and a bunch of other fab finds!

  1. I haven't prank called anyone for a long, long time. Might be time to remedy that this weekend!

    Sounds like you've been having a great time with your mum. Aren't they the best?

  2. Ha! I totally did number 4 this weekend. : )

  3. Oh, How FUN!!! LOVE this post :)

    Thanks for the laughs babe


  4. I love your 10 top list it's so much fun! That first picture is also absolutely adorable!


  5. I love your faves too and that top photo! Though the second one totally cracked me up - I need to get ahold of that tea for the holidays! :)

    Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  6. Super cute post! No matter how old you are you are always a kid again with your Mom!

  7. I thought I was the only one with stacks of magazines hidden all over my house, ha. I've only shopped on Black Friday once and probably never will again. Love your list.

  8. Oh! I need to get on this list! .. and prank call someone! :P Sounds so naughty now!

  9. Love your list! I intend to carry out every single one (well, except maybe pranking a boy.. unless it's my husband!)

    Glad you had a lovely time with your mom. I cherish those times as well.

  12. OH my, the socks, that tea, love it all.

  13. Girl I did not even leave that bed on Friday....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    unless you count running down the hallway for more snacks. helltotheno.


  14. I'm so not a black friday girl either. ugh. and i'm eying a pair of socks like that at UO!

  15. Those are great things to do in bed! I think I'll try one of them out right now since I'm feeling under the weather!

  16. Sounds like such a wonderful week-I'm so anxious to see my Mama next month! I'm sure we'll also be doing a lot of tea drinking and therapy!

    I so wish I could have stayed in my jammies today, but work beckoned-I'll crawl back into them when I get home!

  17. This is such an adorable list! I must admit, I find myself doing 6, 7, 8, and 10 a little too much while cuddled up in bed!

  18. love this!! my weekend was great but i cant get warm!!! haha


  19. Adorable post, I remember pranking boys, so so much fun!

  20. Just found your blog!
    I could absolutely not agree more about Black Friday. I just can't see how it seems appealing.
    I mean, I get the money saving deals, but it seems like you have to loose a lot of dignity in the process.
    Not worth the trade in my opinion.
    P.S love the socks in that first pic. Are they yours?

  21. #3 i am compiling soon after i type this comment. #5 would most likely get me in to loads of trouble, although i definitely partook in my single days. #10 is a lovely fantasy that i will someday (far in the future) turn into a reality.

    thank you for the list. i love lists of all kinds and this was a good one.
