• June Favorites…

    June is always a whirlwind with school ending and the start of Summer! All of my favorites from the month either made my life easier, just made me happy or provided a great escape of entertainment away from the news cycle! Never Have I Ever – Netflix–  Oh my gosh is this show adorable! We binged this teen coming of age comedy-drama so quickly and were so sad when it ended! Don’t miss it! Living Proof Perfect Hair Day In Shower Styler – I have fully embraced my curly hair during this quarantine (and to be honest, the heatwave) and this product really makes it so much easier to keep…

  • Week Eleven Corona Virus Hiatus: Entertaining Outside

    Week ELEVEN. So things are shifting a lot. States are opening up, social distancing still stands and masks are encouraged if not mandatory; but stay at home orders are lifting. Perhaps there is a little light at the end of the tunnel. I still can not quite picture what the Summer will look like, but I imagine we will get into a groove and hopefully be able to socialize with a few families. I read this NPR article on how to assess risk this Summer and found it to be helpful, good common sense. So… it looks like when (if) we will be entertaining, it will be outside. I rounded…

  • A Few Random Things That Have Been Invaluable During The Quarantine…

    A few random things that have been invaluable during the quarantine… These don’t quite qualify for the “This Month’s Favorite” post because they aren’t that “fun”, but they have been totally invaluable during this quarantine!  I have long wanted to make the switch to less plastics and paper products and this quarantine has pushed me to be a little more proactive! Also… cleaning. Who else is in disbelief about the amount of dust that is in their house??? I am constantly cleaning. It must be because of all of us being in the house all day every day… So, a few things that I am loving!   Bona Floor Cleaner…

  • Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

    I am having a hard time keeping track of days for sure… is it Tuesday or Wednesday? And forget about actual day of the month! But I did just realize that Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away! Time to get on it! I have rounded up some great gift ideas for that wonderful Mom in your life… and Moms feel free to forward this on to those that love you!      Fiddle Leaf Plant – Love the idea of pretty plant that will have a more permanent spot rather than just flowers… but you can certainly do flowers too!  Ariel Gordon Necklace – I recently discovered this…

  • Week Seven Coronavirus Hiatus: Small Interior Updates

    Let’s keep this week light. Last week was long and heavy, at least it felt that way in this house. Here are a few things to perhaps brighten your home a bit as we head into Week Seven.  Last week we focused on the outside. I am SO grateful for the sunny day yesterday; we were outside in our “new room” all day. So let’s focus on the inside. Nothing major, although I’ve been meaning to finish a “Indoor Refresh” post since the start of this… maybe I will save that for the two month mark. When you spend so much time in your house you see things that perhaps…

  • Week Six Coronavirus Hiatus: Let’s Build Another Room

    We live in a sweet house. We’ve been here for 12 years and always planned on moving to a slightly bigger property at some point… especially as the kids grow. Man, do we need to do that. The comfort of a house changes dramatically when the entire household is home… 24/7. With that in mind we decided it was time to amp up our patio space so we could have “another room.” We had been holding off on purchasing anything with the plan of moving on the horizon… but when we uncovered our wooden outdoor dining table and found it was rotting… we knew it was time. I did a…

  • January Favorites

    Oh January is always a little dull right? After all the glitter of the holidays it is a time to be quiet and stay home… and maybe get organized? I have been trying to do all those things… I have a ways to go on the organization front but I am getting there! So here are this month’s favorites… yep, 3 TV shows on that list!   Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • My Most Used Pots & Pans

    For the past two weeks I have been part of several conversations about pots, pans and dutch ovens. Specifically, what the best ones are and what I use and love. Another friend asked me again this morning and I figured it was time for a blog post! I think it is the time of year. We are all getting ready to cook feasts for the holidays and maybe hibernate for Winter and crack open some of those cookbooks. The truth is you don’t need that many pots and pans to create amazing meals. You just need a few spectacular ones (note: not all need to be expensive!), four to be…

  • My Holiday Wishlist

    I have had lots of requests to know what I would like to see under the tree this Holiday season. To be honest… not much! I don’t feel like there are many things I NEED… okay, slippers, I need new slippers. That said, there are a few things I have been eyeing… Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.
