Getting ready for winter – mom edition

Today, I’m getting ready for winter – it’s the mom edition. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone, when it comes to being last in line, when it’s time to buy practical stuff like warm clothes for the winter? I’ve made sure that the kids will be fully dressed and ready for winter – check out my kids edition from last week – and now it’s my turn.

What to add this year?
This year I need to add a few things to my wardrobe. I’ve got the basics covered. An okay winter jacket – even though it’s a few years old, I’ve got warm boots as well. However, I would love to upgrade just a bit. I want to add both practical pieces, which I know will keep me warm and dry, but I also want them to look good. That’s the eternal problem, if you ask me.

Getting ready for winter – kids edition

A few days ago I read that it would be a very cold winter here in Denmark this year. I’v bought some things to prepare the kids for the cold weather, but I’ve still got a few more things on my list before I’m fully ready for snow. Over the years I’ve tried lots of different brands when it comes to kids clothing. I’ve found a few favourite brands, which I know will keep them warm and dry during the winter season.

Vacation time and DIY projects

I’ve got a few days of vacation time coming up this week. I’ve got a few projects planned for the week, but more importantly, the whole family is going to enjoy a few days off. Just relax and enjoy some time together.

It’s time for sleeping in, playing games, reading books, eating out and watching The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren with my daughter. We finished the book last week, and now we just need to find the movie somewhere.

Hopefully, my daughter will join me in some DIY projects. We’re planning a make over of her room, and it would be cool for her to create a few things for the room herself. I kind of like these paper fruit prints made out of colored tissue paper. Find out how to make them on The lovely drawer. diy-tissue-paper-fruit-art-3

Last weekend we moved a few things in her room, and I’ve been cleaning out some of her stuff yesterday. It’s time to add some new and fresh items and welcome spring. The sun has been shining all day yesterday, and I’ve even cleaned her room with one window open, while singing along to some music. What a fantastic time of the year we’re approaching.

I’m collecting cool prints to make a picture wall in her room. This one is already in my boy’s room, but I think I’m going to add it in her room as well.
