Your quarantine nickname is your current mood + the last thing you ate.

So please call me hungover cinnamon rolls 😆🤷🏼‍♀️ 

What’s yours?

Speaking of cinnamon rolls – You guys were VERY into the cinnamon roll recipe that I shared on stories yesterday morning. And since we don’t do anything very exciting on the weekends anymore, this seemed a little more fitting than the typical weekend notes.

{dalgona coffee // whipped coffee}

Happy Monday friends! Hope you all had a wild weekend…ha! Just kidding.

Since not much happens on the weekends these days, weekend notes doesn’t have a place anymore.

We tie-dyed sweatshirts + made whipped coffee. Which you guys seem to be VERY into. So, I thought I’d share the recipe for the whipped coffee. It you’re a Tik Tok’er, then you’ve seen it a million times. That shit has going viral.

Basically the “it” drink at the moment.

If you want to see what all the hype is about, then you’ve got to try it out!

{bay bakes // chocolate chip cookie bars}

Sweet. Salty. Chocolaty. Shall I keep going?

If you’re working on your quarantine bod too, I got a good one for you. Really, Bay has a good one for you!

In the last week or so there is one thing I’ve become very good at, taste testing! Ha! And these bars get my stamp of delicious approval.

Is it possible that baking cookies into the form of bars actually makes them taste better? I think Bay might be on to something here!

Hi friends. Shit is just so weird right now. Still going through all the emotions. Stressed. Sad. Pissed off – that I can’t easily get the basics. Not trying to hoard, just need some necessities. Scared of the un-fucking-known. Happy to have more slow time.

Lets all remember to spread kindness. The world needs that shit right now!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Create a new habit – they say it take 2 weeks, and I’ve got that!
  • Stay healthy
  • Find fun ways to move my body without going to the gym
  • Take Charlie for lots of walks
  • Keep a positive mind
  • KonMari my closet
  • Master at-home mani + pedi’s
  • Come up with a tequila + emergen-C cocktail
  • Only purchase what we actually need
  • Work on my skincare

And since I think we all have extra slow time, I rounded up THE best board games. I read the reviews. Did some homework. Gathered a great selection of games all available on Amazon, so you don’t need to leave the house.
