When Gary came home on Tuesday night from his work holiday party, he did so bearing gifts!! Sometimes with gift swaps you can really luck out and he picked a seriously plush throw - the man knew who he was picking for! That led to me to dreaming up my must haves for a cozy night at home! I sort of blame the West Elm catalog I was also flipping through!
My cozy night essentials!
Step 1: Must get comfy!! I need to throw on my comfortable pajamas and get situated in my spot on the couch! Does anyone else have a set position on their couch? Once situated I can wrap myself in the most luxurious throw ever! Side note - I was about to purchase the one above from Target's Threshold collection last Friday, but thought ours had some more life left in it...little did I know I'd get one anyway!
Step 2: For those of us not fortunate enough to have a real fireplace we have to stick to candles!! If you want to hear wood cracking for real check out these Wood Wick candles I recently found - you can also find them at Marshalls!
Step 3: Now comes the what to drink part! Sometimes I'm in the mood for a glass of wine other times I really want something yummy so I opt for some hot chocolate with mini marshmallows! Both Gary and I have the limited edition Anthropologie mugs and it makes drinking a little more festive!
Step 4: Finding something we can both agree on to watch!! Friday nights are usually our take out and movie night, but before that we catch up on all our shows from the week like Marry Me and The Mindy Project.
Can't forget: The sweet and salty snacks...inevitably if I just finished something salty I need to follow it up by eating something sweet...my go to is just a few chocolate chips on their own.
