Stay at Home.

Like many of you, I’ve been glued to my television for days on end now. I’ve watched as the numbers of infected people in our country steadily climbed, and then began skyrocketing. I’ve also watched the news as “leaders” argue about how best to handle this crisis. Some states are locking down, some are “business as usual”. Some people support closing all nonessential businesses, some do not. Some people are socially distancing…. and some ARE NOT. The ONE thing that […]

Romantic Dinner for Two at Home

A romantic dinner for two at home is a fun way to celebrate a special occasion. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary this week. I wanted to do something to surprise him, because he always has sweet little surprises up his sleeve for me. 💕 For example, this is what I stepped out of the shower to on the morning of our anniversary. Since we still aren’t eating in restaurants due to the pandemic, I decided that a romantic […]

Cooking at Home during Quarantine–Week #3

This is my 3rd edition of “Cooking at Home”, but definitely not “week 3”. Time is starting to become irrelevant to me, and apparently one week equals 7.26 million years now. Don’t you agree? But, I am back today to give you another run down of what we’ve been preparing for meals around here. Since we’ve been cooking at home 95% of the time, that requires a lot of planning, and frankly, I’m starting to run out of ideas. I’ve […]

Homemade French Bread and Herb Dipping Oil

Homemade French Bread and Herb Dipping Oil is so easy to make and so worth the little bit of effort! A whole lotta baking has been going on around here lately. It serves as a sort of therapy, it makes my husband happy (his eyes practically roll back in his head when I offer him a slice of warm, fresh baked bread 🤣), and it’s practical right now, because bread has been hard to come buy in the stores, and […]

Cooking at Home during the Coronavirus Crisis: Week #2

Another week down, and we’re still here, still staying at home, and still trying to minimize our trips out of the house by maximizing our resources. I shared my first Cooking at Home during the Coronavirus Crisis at the end of our first week of staying at home. We’re doing much more cooking at home than ever. My husband and I really enjoying cooking, but even for us, cooking every single meal at home for weeks on end can start […]

Valentine’s Day Date Night at Home

Making time to “turn-off” life, and enjoy some time with your spouse or partner is important. We all lead such busy lives, that time can fly by at the speed of light, and before you know it, you haven’t connected in days. But let’s face it, at the end of a hectic work day, I’m tired. And often, the last thing I feel like doing is getting fancied up to go out for an official “date-night”. At my house, we […]

New Year’s Eve Appetizer & Cocktail Ideas

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. I’m ready for 2020 to make its exit. Are you with me? I saw this meme recently and it made me laugh. Kind of. But at the same time, it does sort of sum up how I’m feeling…. Let’s just ease on into ’21 and see how it goes… Easy does it…. This heinous year making its exit is something worth celebrating, though. Our plan is to stay home and have a […]

A Tiered Tray for July 4th

Today I’m excited to share a tiered tray for July 4th with you. Plus, I have a few bonus thoughts about liberty bouncing around in my head … Liberty… Recently, my husband and I were looking for something to do on one of his days off that would get us out of the house for awhile, but still be responsible, safe and socially distant from other people. I know many people have just gone back to “business as usual”, but […]

Prime Purchases: April 2020–Pandemic Edition

Yes, I know it’s not Tuesday. I usually do my Prime Purchases post on the first Tuesday of each month, but… 1) I’m working from home now, and it’s taking a lot of time to figure out how to make that work. I know many of you out there can relate. 2) Amazon is operating differently right now in light of the current situation. They have prioritized delivery of household essentials right now, and I think that is great. You […]

Easy Saint Patrick’s Day Table

Life is busy right now. Not just average busy, but run-all-day-and-still-not-get-it-all-done kind of busy. This easy Saint Patrick’s Day Table is a fun way to add a little celebration to your life, without having to put in too much effort. ☘️ 😂 Last night after we cleaned up from dinner, I suggested we get in bed and watch TV instead of sit in the family room, because I was that tired. And then I legit fell asleep at 7:30, and […]
