Five on Friday - December 30, 2022 ~ Christmas, Gifts, December Month of Vegetarian/Pescatarian Meals, Declutter and End of the Year Plans

Happy Friday everyone - hope you all had a great week! I've been super productive this week as I had a few days alone, so I cleaned and decluttered my whole house and it feels so good to go in to the New Year totally refreshed! 


Some things shown in this post are gifts, everything else I purchased myself

I hope you all had an amazing holiday - we had a fantastic Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve at my inlaws house with the family and it was a blast. We do a little white elephant gift exchange and had a great time and the kids do a little exchange, so always fun. Christmas morning with the boys was amazing and then we did dinner at my Moms house! 


I always like to share a little lookie at my gifts without being braggy as we never do anything crazy for the holidays, but always make a list of a couple of things we really would like. Personally, I asked for the Victoria Beckham makeup so I'm excited to try these out! I also got a book, candles, kitchen things and some mead and brut! 


I've been loving sharing more about me going vegetarian and I'm loving that you guys have been enjoying seeing all the recipes and veggie meal ideas! I'm not preachy about going vegetarian, but I do think everyone should reduce their meat consumption, so even if one day a week you want to do meatless Monday, hoping you will find some good suggestions! 
(Also, this month there are a few pescatarian meals in here as I eat fish and seafood once in a while!)

In full declutter mode this week, I cleared out every room in the house, including my makeup room so I just got rid of some makeup and products that I haven't been using much of! Nothing wrong with anything, just not being used or getting old in my collection! 


After a busy post-Christmas week, I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend and ringing in the New Year! My inlaws have the little guy out at their cabin for skiing and skating until the middle of the week, my oldest is off doing his own thing and I plan on just hanging out! I will get some makeup done, get some scrapbooking in and just relax! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!
