TTD faves: shelter in place

Working remotely and trying to keep the boys entertained, fed and learning is no joke. So you know I have no time to put too much effort into what I’m wearing these days. I wake up, and throw on some version of the same outfit that consists of: workout pants, a tee or tank, a comfortable long sleeve sweatshirt-like item and a sports bra. I have been staying consistent with my noon hour workouts, and trying to get outside for walks when I can – so being ready for those things at all times is key.

I thought I would share with you today a few of my go-tos and favorite items for sheltering in place.

Zella Exhale Studio Lite Longline Sports Bra
J. Crew Dreamy cotton pajama set
Patagonia Nano Puff Insulated Vest
Halluci Slippers
Wild Fable Blue Light Filtering Glasses
Saranoni XL plush blanket
Capri Blue Aloha Orchid Signature Jar Candle
Aerie camo leggings

TTD faves: Easter baskets 2020

Easter might look a little different this year, but I’m going to do my darnedest to keep some of our traditions alive. And that starts with collecting goodies for the boys’ Easter baskets. This year, my focus is going to be fun summer stuff and items to keep them busy when I’m heading into an hour long Zoom call. Bonus: as of now, most of the items below can make it to your doorstep before the bunny is scheduled to arrive!

Junbestn Matching Easter Eggs // H&M Seersucker swim shorts
Pottery Barn Kids ABC Floor Puzzle // Vaenait Baby pajamas
LEGO City Street Sweeper // First Little Readers
TEVA Hurricane Drift sandals // Zuru Bunch O Balloons
Spritz Easter basket // PlayTape Black Road

I’ve been meaning to write this post now for a couple of weeks, but between working remotely and keeping two small children alive, turns out I’m pretty preoccupied and doggone tired by the end of the day. Hence the radio silence.

As this blog serves as a collection of our life, I thought I better not miss the chance to document what is going on in the world right now. We are smack dab in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic and are currently practicing social distancing and our own sheltering in place.

I have felt every single emotion over the past two weeks, and I’m sure this is just the beginning. From awkward work Zoom calls to explaining what a virus is to my two small boys, this has definitely been something that I would have never imagined having to deal with.

But, with all that is going on, the one thing I keep coming back to, is how I will never forget this time I’ve gotten to spend with just the four of us. The good and the bad. And I want to take the time to document it all. I hope you are all well and know that we are in this together!

SleepingBeauty[my little sleeping beauty]

I was Amazon hunting the other day and came across this darling brand, Hope & Henry, that would be perfect for a preppy addition to your Easter outfits this year.

I’ve been wearing my blue light blocking glasses at work a lot lately and felt like I should have a pair at home for my late-night screen time binges. This lilac pair from Target’s Wild Fable line should fit the bill.

This is a friendly reminder that this weekend is daylight saving time! Yes, we loose an hour, but it will be lighter later. I consider that a win.

BoysBasketball[the boys cheered on their babysitter last week]

In the market for a new iPhone case? I’m obsessed and secretly pining for a personalized one from NewJoyStudio on Etsy.

After the most recent James Beard nominations came out, I knew that we needed to get back to Harbinger for dinner. Can’t wait to head there tomorrow night!

I don’t necessarily think that I’m easily influenced, but I finally broke down and ordered these sunglasses that I have been seeing everywhere lately.
