Ozark. I am a longtime fan of Jason Bateman and this season of Ozark was the. best. yet. If you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest starting with Season 1 and binging all the way through. Phenomenal character development, twists you will not see coming, exceptional writing – it is SO good.
Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs. Because, Easter week. And also, YUM 😋
This deep conditioner. I have not used heat on my hair once during quarantine, and plan to avoid it for as long as possible. Especially since I’m in this awkward grow-out phase and would like to lighten up a little when we come out of hiding. This conditioning treatment leaves your hair feeling so soft, and helps it to air-dry much nicer than without👌🏼. Also, headbands. This one is so comfortable, I didn’t have to adjust once during the day – and again, polished without the effort.
Snail mail. We’ve been sending out so many letters and handwritten surprises and it brings such joy on both ends of the mailbox. This week, we made these DIY bouquets for Grey’s grandmothers for Easter. It was an awesome activity that actually got him to sit still for the better part of an hour – he tackled scissor and fine motor skills, following directions, and got creative with the floral design.
Instant Coffee Craze. I’ve been seeing this whipped java all over my insta feed and I had to give it a go. First of all, it’s dreamy to look at. And second, I heard there is quite the buzz. It did not disappoint (for me, anyway, Jon thought it tasted like tar 😆). Follow this recipe – you can either use a whisk, or a hand mixer. If you love the taste of black coffee 🙋🏼♀️, go easy on the sugar; if strong coffee is not your jam, add a little more. This isn’t something I’d drink on the daily, but it is such a fabulous weekend pick-me-up (or any day really, what day is it anyway?).
Nashville Dream Home. I’m a sucker for a good home tour; and love to see how people live in other parts of the country. This home is designed so beautifully, inside and out. The details!!
Progress. Last week was a tough one in our house, morale-wise. They extended the stay at home order (which we understand to be necessary), but it felt hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This week we’re focusing on the Tony Robbins mantra of progress. When you’re making progress in any area of your life, you feel better, and you do better. I set a goal to move my body every day this week, and limit snacking between meals. I realized I was nibbling more than usual, because the kitchen was so easy-access. And also, so many feelings. We’re planting our spring pots, continuing to seek out joy each day, and finishing up some odds and ends projects to get our home ready to list when the market starts moving again. What’s on your progress punchlist?
We hope you’re feeling healthy (mentally, too), and that you have everything you need right at home. Thank you for being here with us. Hugs to you 💙
