• Flatten The Curve

    Okay folks. It’s really time to stay home. Yes, get your groceries and your toilet paper, go to the doctor etc if need be but PLEASE practice social distancing. It’s the only way we are going to put a pin in this. I understand that there are people (plenty of people) that will still need to go to their jobs and earn for themselves and their families and provide services to our communities, I am grateful for those people. But, if you have the ability to hunker down in your house please do so. On that note, support your local small businesses… a lot of them are delivering and offering…

  • Let’s Be Prepared…

    So, this seems like a sort of ridiculous thing to write about but I have received SO MANY requests about how to stock up a pantry/fridge/freezer should we end up with a Coronavirus 2 week quarantine in the NY Metro area (or anywhere else for that matter). You can read more about the Coronavirus here on the CDC website. Now,  let me be VERY clear… I do not think we are about to experience some sort of zombie apocalypse, but I do feel like there is a significant chance that our schools will shut down for two weeks and we will be housebound. 1000 people are already quarantined in neighboring…

  • 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.

  • Easy Hors d’oeuvres…

    Okay… the Holidays are busy! We still entertain or have to show up with a little something for all the fun gatherings, right? I have a few never fail hors d’oeuvres that are as simple as grabbing a few things at the store and assembling. Okay, one requires a little stove time, but it is SO easy and can double as dinner… perfect if you’re headed to a cocktail party. Leave some home for your kids with the sitter. You just need a pretty tray or bowl for serving… I rounded up a few of those below too!   Jazzed up hummus Store bought hummus Olive Oil Smoked paprika Chips…

  • July Favorites…

    My favorites this month pretty much revolve around the beach… and exercising. All things Summer. Some I have talked about before so they are old favorites but also some new finds… how had I never tried on Beyond Yoga before?

  • Getting It Together: Kitchen Organization

    I should maybe have titled this post “Grief Made Me Want To Throw Out Everything In My House”… An interesting byproduct of the grieving process (for me) has been the overwhelming urge to purge and organize. I understand it is a control thing. When you have your life shift so violently and lose someone that important so suddenly you are put in a place where you are grasping to have control of something. “What can I control?” Well, I can certainly control how my house looks, how we live in it, how we use it and what we are surrounded by. Also what I wear, because let’s face it, that…

  • April Favorites…

  • March Favorites…

    I can not believe it is the end of March. The temperature is actually starting to rise. The birds are chirping,  the flowers are trying to peek out and Spring Break is around the corner! I am pumped to open the windows and let the fresh air in! This month was chock full of fevers, viruses, bugs and antibiotics for this household. It stunk. So this month’s favorites have a bit of homebody/kids undertone! Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.
