The Super Bowl is this weekend and this is my favorite weekend to plan some yummy food for the big game. It also helps that our team is in the Super Bowl which makes it even more exciting. If you're teams not in the Super Bowl and you're just here for the food then you came to the right place. 

This year I've included a couple healthier options. I'm still trying to lose the baby weight (hello, metabolism, you can speed up any day now) so I don't want to overindulge too much because I've been working hard to try and get it off so I don't want to erase all my hard work. Plus I notice that I feel like crap once I do over indulge.

Giada's California Turkey Chili-this is a different take on chili but I like mixing it up from your average chili

Bake at 400 degrees I think 
Right on the sheet pan and leave alone 
They will get crispy and I don't time anything so when they're done
Toss with your favorite sauce. 

Buffalo sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter (3 sticks Butter, softened)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

 DESSERT...the best part!

Pretzel Rolo Treats, so easy to make.Place rolos on top of pretzels, bake in 250 degree oven for a couple minutes and add your teams colored m&m's on top.

The Super Bowl is this weekend and we are so excited for our New England Patriots. I know they're not a fan favorite but you have to admit that it's pretty impressive what Brady has done over the years. I may be a little biased as I've always been a Brady fan but no matter who you are cheering for or if you're just here for the commercials and food, I'm sharing some tips on how to plan a Super Bowl Themed party your friends and family will enjoy starting with the invites. 

I'm a paper girl and always loved receiving invites in the mail since I was a little girl but times have changed and digital invites are what all the kids are using these days. It's faster, cheaper and you can manage RSVP's a lot easier. My go to for online invitations has always been Paperless Post. You can customize online invitations and cards to reflect your style. They offer free cards and a coin system. You can add or remove options, including envelopes, liners, backdrops and logos when creating your design. I love their selection of cards to choose from for planning events. I've chosen a couple of my favorites for the big game this weekend. Who will you be cheering for? Or are you just here for the ads?

Later this week I'll be sharing some of my favorite Super Bowl Party recipes including my skinny buffalo chicken dip!

Design Plans & Goals for The Style Nest Home

Did we seriously blink and 2018 was gone? 2018 was such a great year for us but it all feels like a blur. I think I was in shock that I was pregnant for the first part of the year, then I was pregnant and now I'm still in the sleep deprived infant stage living in that sleep deprived mom brain fog. I still can't believe we had a baby in 2018 but what an amazing gift he has been. He has brought so much joy into our home and I couldn't imagine life without him. How we're going to top off 2019, I'm no so sure but we have design plans and goals over here at The Style Nest for this year.

We've lived in our home for over 5 years and we've been chipping away at projects. Last year we worked on the outside which has been an ongoing process, a very expensive process but it needed to be done. I can't wait for nice weather and to entertain out there and enjoy it! We also finished the babies room, which is now my favorite room in the house. 

Since we now have a baby our priorities have shifted a bit as to what needs to be finished in our home. The living room which was the only room almost complete, now needs to be completely redone because nothing is baby friendly. I thought it would be a good idea to plan ahead for what's to come in 2019 and live with these design boards for a couple months before fully pulling the trigger on pieces.

The other project in DESPERATE need of being renovated is our one and only full bathroom. This has been delayed because of that. This will be our big project this year and I honestly cannot wait to take a sledge hammer to that room. I have 2 design concepts I'm deciding between. I think I made up my mind but I'll share what I'm thinking and let me know if you have a favorite.

2019 Goals:

+ To organize and maintain that organized home. For me having a clean home is a form of self care and I am just a much better person when my house is in order. I want to share how I organize my space as well. 

+ To complete rooms that are 90% done and finally photograph these to share with you on the blog

+ To share more style tips on the blog of what is going on behind the scenes with our design work

+ To simplify things. Now that we have a baby, my time has been non existent. I want everything in it's place and to not spend what little free time I do have cleaning. I read Marie Kondo's book last year and got halfway through until I got to the paper part and panicked. Binge watching Kon Marie's show on Netflix may have pushed me to finally complete this.

+ To share more fashion posts on the blog. This was the most requested item on my questionnaire last year and with being pregnant I doubt anyone was looking for me to share any fashion tips at the time. I'm very awkward in front of a camera but I want to overcome this and instead of sharing fashion mood boards, I want to share more of what I like to wear. 

+ We have a couple fun trips planned this year so I will also start sharing more of our travel adventures on the blog as well. I love to do a lot of research before heading to our destination and I love reading tips from other travelers. We've found a couple great recommendations over the years and I'd like to share these from our travels. I also want to put together a What to do in Boston guide as I get asked this frequently. Although I haven't lived here my whole life, we've been here for 11 years and frequent the city often so I have some great places to share. 

Cheers to 2019 going a little bit slower then 2018!
