• Week Twelve Coronavirus Hiatus & May Favorites… 2020

    Week Twelve. Things are shifting. Now in this Phase One stage restaurants are offering outside dining, fitness studios are reopening as are stores slowly with restrictions in place. It feels hopeful… I think, as a family, we will continue to hibernate a little longer and dip our toes in the water with caution in the coming weeks. There is still so much unknown about the virus, particularly in children, and it seems that the information changes daily. That said, as the country was starting to reopen last week, there was a happening that is anything but hopeful. The death of a George Floyd. What happened to George Floyd and what…

  • April Favorites… 2020

    I know I say it all the time; “Where did the month go?”. But really… where did it go? April was one very long blur. I can not believe it’s already over. Lot’s of TV, movies & books  here… because what else have we done this month? I hope everyone is hanging in during their quarantine!     White + Warren Cashmere Sweatshirt – I bought this utterly soft sweater from my favorite local shop, Fred. It’s on sale in both spots! I LOVE it. Feels put together while still so comfortable.  Defending Jacob – Apple TV – This book was actually the first book I picked for book club…

  • Week Four Coronavirus Hiatus: Cut Yourself Some Slack

    Week four, that seems really unbelievable. I read a great NY Times article last week about relaxing on the “To-Do List”; easing up on the need to feel productive. I couldn’t agree more. We have enough pressure and stress on ourselves right now, do we REALLY need to have our house in perfect order too? Learn a new language (I laughed out loud)? Or learn how to make puff pastry from scratch?   If those things relax you then by all means become multilingual and clean out every last closet. Some days cleaning helps me, some days I just want to binge watch TV after we’ve completed our eLearning because…

  • March Favorites…

    Well, okay, this March was weird. No other way to explain it. We are living in the middle of a global pandemic that is unlike anything we have ever experienced before… and we are shut in our homes. No matter, I still definitely had my “favorite things” this month. I apologize if there are repeats from months past… what can I say, I didn’t get out much.     Drizly Alcohol Delivery – So, we are all trying to stay home and not venture to stores… this service is brilliant. Delivery from your local liquor stores… just like Instacart or Prime Now… but for your Tequila, Wine & mixers. A…

  • Week Three Corona Virus Hiatus: Let’s Move

    Alright, alright, alright… here we go, week three! How is everyone doing? Stir crazy? Hanging in? I have found that a daily (okay, almost daily) dose of exercise has been doing wonders over here. I have rounded up some great sources for workouts below… and don’t forget getting outside for a walk, run, bike ride… just please keep your distance from others! If you have ever debated getting a Peloton, now is the time! It runs around $58 a month! Even if you don’t want to invest in the bike, their streaming service is awesome. Tons of additional  content ranging from yoga to weight training to boot camp. If you…

  • 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.

  • What To Watch…

    Okay, it is finally chilly here! What does that mean? Lots of evenings hunkered down on the couch and binge watching TV… I’m not complaining! Here is our list for Fall TV! Happy viewing! (We stream everything on our Roku… if you are thinking about “cutting the cord” on cable read this post!)   New this Fall… The Affair – Final Season (Showtime- Hulu) – This show is finally answering all the questions in it’s 5th season. If you haven’t watched it at all, its worth it. It gets a little weird sometimes in the middle seasons but it’s well done! Kominsky Method (Netflix) – Second season of this just…
