It’s so nice to be back. While stepping away last week to mute + learn. I’m sure we can all agree, it’s been eyeopening in so many ways.

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.

Bay Bakes. It’s be a while, but my favorite (not-so) little baker is back. You see, Bay’s now a teenager. So, sometimes she’s all about the blog, like right now. And other times, not so much. Ha! When she’s willing to bake, I take her up on it!

She made the cutest + yummiest Christmas Light Cookies. They are so fun and festive.

I included the sweetest Letter To Santa free printable at the end of this blog post. Although we no longer host our Letters To Santa night, Bay will 100% be forced to write a letter anyway!
