Let’s Stay Home // Favorite Things

How is everyone doing? Just as it seems we are getting used to this laid back lifestyle of staying home, it seems like there may be a light at the end of the tunnel, business are starting to open back up and good news is spreading like wildfire. Can you tell that I’m an eternal optimist over here?

Meanwhile, as we continue to stay home and live our best homebody lives, I thought I would put together a handful of my favorite things for staying at home, because we all need a super cozy Let’s Stay Home sweatshirt & a good faux tan right?

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

A few more things we are loving:

+ Sleeping in and slow mornings consisting of dinkytown and french toast.

+ A daily family workout (even if it is just walking to the local coffee shop or a quick online yoga class).

+ Having low expectations and even lower standards. Added stress or pressure is not welcome here.

+ Grade level workbooks for the kids on days that logging on their distance learning feels like too much work.

+ Afternoon cold brews with cold foam (we use skim milk or heavy whipping cream in the individual serve setting on this blender).

+ Movie nights way too often (current favorites are The Parent Trap, Honey I Shrunk The Kids & Evan Almighty).

+ Game nights: Uno, Spoons or Rack-O.

+ Writing down three things we are grateful for each day.

+ Our wine subscription. Clean wine, no added sugar or sulfites, and no hangover.

+ And trying new recipes!! Dying to make our own sourdough bread, have you tried it? Give me all your best tips and tricks!!

Hope you guys are surviving and finding silver linings in the current environment, I love you all so much and I am forever grateful for your readership!! Better days ahead, friends!!


Easter Basket Favorites

I’ll be the first to admit I am the least prepared for Easter this year. All of the days have been blending together, March felt like it was 900 days long and now all of a sudden Easter is next weekend! So, here we are whipping up last minute baskets and goodies for the kiddos! I’ve rounded up a handful of my favorite things, really feeling a yellow theme this year (need all the sunshine we can get!!) and of course sticking to a few classics like the glittery bunny ears!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

If your kids don’t already have an Instax camera, they are THE most fun thing. I love finding their little photo treasures scattered all over the house. So sweet to see things the way they see them!! I also grabbed the girls a few swimsuits & pairs of sunnies for vacation, but since we never made it, I am just sticking them in their Easter baskets!! Silver linings, baby. I also have a bunch of plastic eggs saved from last year that I will fill with things like nailpolish, hair clips, silly putty, love notes & of course, CANDYYY!!!

How are you guys holding up?! Tell us what your easter plans are!!


Favorite Things // Vacation Style

We are just weeks away from our faaaaaaaaavorite vacation of the year. SEASIDE here we come!!!! I’ve been eyeing all of the cute swimsuits for myself & for the girls, and thought it would be fun to round up a few of the things I am loving!!

one // two // three // four // five // six

I had to have that scalloped leopard swimsuit the second I saw it, I love the pops of pink and the scalloped details!! It runs small, so size up. Also, high waisted swimsuits are my favorite! The plunge swimsuit (number four above) is my ALL time favorite swimsuit, it is so flattering, especially if you have a small chest and it just fits so well (true to size)!!!! I have had it for probably three or four years and it’s always the suit I grab first.

A few other noteworthy vacation favorites:

Theeeee best denim shorts ever, they are so comfortable & the high waist is everything.

Obsessed with these packing cubes, I need all the organizational help I can get!

And nothing says vacation like some beachy rattan earrings!! I don’t wear a ton of jewelry but could not resist these for only $12!

For the girls, I am loving that cute textured pink two piece, this leopard one piece and of course had to get this cute flippy sequin one for rainbow girl! I also grabbed these super cute rose gold sandals & these fun rainbow sunglasses for the girls too.

Are you vacationing somewhere warm this year?! Would love to hear your fave travel destinations! In the meantime, hope you are all getting a little sunshine wherever you live!! Happy Monday, friends!!!
