New Year’s Eve Weekend Picks

This is a sponsored post.

Your New Year’s Eve weekend guide
has arrived with our top picks for your family!

I am beyond happy that we were able to have a white Christmas this year – even if you could still see the grass blades through the snow. However, this bitter cold – no, no, NO! After attending/hosting six parties in three days over the course of Christmas weekend, we hunkered down and stayed in our pajamas all day on Tuesday (it was -1 outside, are you kidding me?!). We cleaned up from the coming and going and organized where to put all the new fun gifts we received. We also had fun asking you when your Christmas tree comes down! Ha – great responses!

Have you been enjoying the Christmas break? I hope everyone in your household is healthy and no one is going stir crazy with cabin fever! *Update – If you missed a carriage ride through downtown Waukesha, Stephanie took one last weekend. Per Silver Bells, “Horse Drawn Carriage Rides have been cancelled due to the cold weather for Friday Night & Saturday Afternoon [December 29 and 30]. The Horses would have become sweaty from pulling the carriage and then would have been transported by horse trailer back to the barn and would have been exposed to dangerous conditions, so for the health and safe being the carriage rides have been cancelled for the last 2 days of the season. 

ICYMI: We have 30 things to do over Christmas Break, and we have a whole ‘nother week until school starts again. 😉 PLUS, we have the low-down on what’s open and what’s not this weekend. Check it out here.
