Links We Love 4/23/20

Hiya & happy almost Friday! The weeks are getting tougher to be at home in Baltimore and without the ability to see family and friends. Both of our families live states away and it’s difficult to not know when you will be able to see each other again. But on the same note, working from home has started to actually feel normal to me. One day going back to the office is going to see odd. Previously my Thursday’s were spent planning the weekend but now our only plan for the weekend is to stay home. We’ll get creative though with one of our date night in ideas! On to the links we love…

Recipes we made last week:

Coming soon:

  • Pork Schnitzel
  • Chorizo Stuffed Sweet Peppers
  • Black Bean Lentil Meatballs

Some feel good books to add to your list or start now!

Keeping my morning routine pretty much exactly the same I think has helped me have a sense of normalcy at home as well as motivate me for the work day.

Some positive and warm headlines to put a smile on your face!

To keep that smile going, these coronavirus jokes have me rolling. The 4th one!! “Oh well, just one of those things I guess”.

People can be so creative with the space they have at home. Made sure to save to share on Links We Love. These under the stair’s ideas. Would have never thought of those!

Also on the same home improvement note, you can do a lot more with your basement ceiling than I ever thought.

A few holidays are right around the corner, I’m looking to these virtual parties for inspiration.

Things I love this week:

DO NOT feel guilty if you are not miraculously changing your life for the better in quarantine. Everywhere you look people are re-organizing their kitchen, all of a sudden a master at a new skill, or even working out every single day. Good for those people, really. I wish I had the time and energy to do all of that. But every situation is different and we should stop stating people have unlimited free time right now.

On that same note, this pandemic is bringing out the best and the worst in people but we all need to remember how to treat and speak to one another.

Having anxiety and feeling overwhelmed by the world today, you are not alone. I am right there with you. Check out these 5 tips to help calm your nerves.

And if you’re someone like me who needs to distract themselves, these 20 things are easy and really do let you turn your mind off.

Recipes we love this week:

I am not a big yoga person but it has helped calm my anxiety as well. Even if you just take 15 minutes, it’s worth it.

Everyone has a secret anxiety behavior and if you didn’t realize before, you probably see it now. I will pick at my nails and cuticles, such a bad habit.

Trying out these braided hairstyles. Even if they come out awful, only Phillip has to see it!

Anyone else a big podcast fan? Loving these podcasts while cleaning or organizing around the house. I have never been able to listen to a podcast and work at the same time. Envy those who can!!

Well, that’s it for this week, check out Marvelous Munch next Thursday for more Links We Love!
