I can definitely say that we’ve been cooking and baking A LOT at our house during quarantine. It’s been fun to re-connect in the kitchen, but sometimes you really just need to get out and grab something from your favorite restaurant in town. Luckily, they’ve kept the restaurants open for take out and we’ve splurged a few times, because it’s all about supporting local and keeping your faves in business, right? In honor of that, I’m sharing some fun printable temporary take out tattoos that you can print right from the comfort of your own home! They’re fun for the whole family to play around with during quarantine, and since most of us are working from home right now, your boss won’t judge you either 😉
I know a lot of people had vacations planned that had to be canceled due to quarantine and COVID-19, myself included. Spring break, weddings, foreign travel and how those things look right now have all changed and none of us have any idea when we’ll be able to get back to the “travel” part of our lives. We’ve been forced to pivot and now we’re all stuck inside, looking for ways to escape, get outside, and relive some stress. Depending on where you’re located in the country and world, that may look very different for each of us. So today, I thought I would share some creative and different virtual ideas that we can all participate in to do the best we can with what we’re working with at the moment. And, no, it doesn’t compare to a real trip at all, but it may help to pass the time at home and start a new travel bucket list for when it’s safe for us all to travel again! Here are more than 30 ways to “vacation” from your couch during quarantine! [Read more…]
Easter might look a little different this year, but I still wanted to sneak a fun easter egg decorating tutorial into the mix that you guys STILL have time to do before Sunday! These Easter eggs are ready to party , even though they’re stuck at home, and yours can become party animal Easter eggs too with a few simple supplies and some creativity!
Around the country, most people are stuck at home and the boredom is really starting to set in during this quarantine period. We’ve been trying to find new things to do and we’re especially trying to find new ways to get outside to break up the monotony of staring at a computer or tv screen all day. I’ve been rummaging through our garage and pulling out all of our favorite games to play in the backyard and thought it would be really helpful to share some of our favorites with you guys, in case you’re stuck in the same boat too. So I put together a list of 25 outdoor activities that you can order on Amazon! (And they’re all Prime too which means that they’ll only take a few days to arrive!) They’ll work for kids, families, or adults and they’re perfect to have on hand to keep you busy during quarantine, but they’ll also be great to keep stored away for the next time you can actually have people over and host your next backyard bbq too!
I’ve officially been working from home for two full weeks now and my company is set to stay home for at least another month. (Thanks Corona!) In the beginning, I was allll about working from home. Saving time on my morning commute, strolling down to my desk in pj’s, and happy hours whenever I felt like it. And while working from home absolutely does have it’s perks (like those above), it also sucks feeling like you’re stuck inside sitting and staring at a computer all day. Lately I’ve been trying to find ways to spend the hours after work and during my make-shift “lunch breaks” to get up and get active, which totally helps to keep my mood lifted. One thing that helps? Good music! Today I’m sharing something I put together to inspire you guys to get active too. This get up and move playlist is filled to the brim with songs that always seem to inspire bad dance moves and lip sync performances of the best kind.
So grab your dancing shoes (or cozy slippers, like the ones I’ve been living in), get up and move! [Read more…]
