Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 19

Week 19 is the calm before the storm for our garden. We’ve been slowly harvesting more and more, but I have a feeling the ripe tomatoes are about to go wild. This week I got a few new fitness items in the mail. If you’ve read my blog post...

My Current Fitness Routine & Recent Weight Loss

I want to give forewarning on this post that I am discussing the topics of weight loss, diet, and exercise and that if those topics trigger you in any way you should skip reading this post. When quarantine began back in March, I chose to have a positive outlook...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 18

This past week was really rough. I had my period and when I’m on my period my joints get super loose. Is that normal? I have no idea, but it happens to me and it hits me hardest in my jaw. I can’t keep my jaw in any kind...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 17

Yall! I am going to have home grown veggies soon. Look at those mators in all their glory. I’m really excited for when they day comes that I can harvest something. I know its going to be soon! To be completely honest, the work week is slipping into mundane...

My Quiet Time

Sunsets have become me time recently. I know it may sound strange that I need designated “me time” while I’m isolated at home all day, everyday with my husband, but I’ve found that carving out this time specifically to do something relaxing for myself has been the energizing activity...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 16

Can you even believe we are in the month of July? I’m still a bit shocked that this year is already half way passed and that we’ve spent the majority of it within the confines of our home. Honestly, I haven’t hated it. There are a few things I’m...

Reflections

Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day we had to say goodbye to Kitty. Its so weird how the best days always feel like a complete blur and the worst days stand out in complete technicolor detail. Austin was running late returning from a work site-visit in...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 15

Week 15 brought us the first days of Summer and the 100 day mark for our family’s self-isolation. It also brought me this adorable little pepper, which the squirrels promptly knocked off the plants and nibbled on. On the garden front, everything we’ve planted in the veggie garden is...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 14

Week 14 of self-isolation, work from home, and COVID-19 being taken seriously (by some people). It’s kind of crazy that the rest of the world is hitting a legitimate second wave and our country hasn’t even managed to bring our first wave to an end. Honestly, nothing shocks me...

Do I Need a No-Buy?

If you keep up with my Youtube channel and have seen the approximately 1,000 hauls I’ve done recently you would agree the answer to my title question is a resounding “YES”....

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 13

Welcome to week 13. While Maryland has entered phase 2 of reopening (which I think is a terrible idea), Austin and I had chose to make the tiniest of baby steps –  attending the local farmers market. Our local market had several rules in place that made us feel...

Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 12

Week 12 has been a bit of a roller coaster emotionally. I’ve been feeling a lot of social media fatigue, which I’m sure many people are experiencing right now. I want keep abreast of the latest updates surrounding the #BLM protesting happening around the world (seriously, the world –...
