Hallelujah it's Friday!  This week has been a bit crazy, so I'm happy to get the weekend started!  But wait...tomorrow we have a cheer competition and three basketball games, yikes!  Ok, maybe I'm happy that we are closer to Sunday :)  Our days are busy, but all part of raising kids and all so good! 

Today, I have something a little different to share with you all.  I'm guest hosting along with Kris, Lisa, Jennifer and Pam for their Best of the Nest monthly link party.  I love these gals!  Not only are they genuinely the sweetest group, but overflowing with inspiration.  I think you will adore them!

Since there was no December link party, you can link up your favorite project from either December or January or just browse through the links for decorating & DIY inspiration. We will get this party started by sharing our own favorite projects of the month.  Mine is our Sunday evening dinner tradition.  This meal has become such a special meal for us and one of my favorite nights of the week!

Kris {Driven By Décor}
Kris started off the new year by organizing her kitchen with a new coffee station.  I wish she lived closer, because I would be right over to join her for a cup and chat awhile.  She and I have very similar décor styles, so I admire everything she does!

Pam {Simple Details}
Pam is spilling all the details about her Better Homes and Gardens Refresh Magazine shoot.  Her home is so, so gorgeous inside and out, but her beautiful gardens and landscaping against the white exterior are my favorite!

Lisa {Shine your Light}
Lisa revealed her living room progress.  Her goal was for it to be an inviting and comfortable space to lounge in and she nailed!  And her DIY wall bookcases are still one of my favorite projects Lisa has done...love them!

Jennifer shared her beautiful kitchen makeover.   I'm loving all the gold accents she used, especially those lotus pendants!  So fresh and pretty!  Perfect.

So now it’s your turn to show us the best from your nest – whether it’s a DIY project, a room makeover, a craft, or a fabulous new recipe, if it’s your favorite thing you’ve done around your home this December or January, we want to see it! And when you link up on one of our blogs, your link will show up on all five of them.  Not a blogger? You can still join in the fun! Enter through Instagram by using the hashtag #bestofthenestparty and tagging at least one of the link party hosts:
