Click. Read. Love. 3.12.21

Craig’s parents were here this week (they’ve both been vaccinated) and it was such a treat to get out of the house with Craig, alone. I can count on one hand the number of times we’ve done that over the last year. President Biden said in his address to the nation last night he is directing states to make all adults eligible for the vaccine by May 1, and that a return to normalcy was possible by July 4. It’s probably safe to assume normalcy will have new meaning, and we will be grappling with the toll of this pandemic long after our return to it. But I am finally starting to feel a bit of optimism and hope, and that is what’s getting me through for the time being. Wishing you all a restful weekend, we have an extra hour of daylight coming.

If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

After the year of no bras, things are looking up! (haha)

I love Playa’s salt scrub shampoo so I was really excited to try their supernatural conditioner and I am so impressed. They sent me a mini kit to test and I couldn’t believe how soft my hair was after the conditioner (and I didn’t have to use a ton of product). (J)

This is a cool concept.

    I know this isn’t really the best place to share this topic but I did read the whole blog thoroughly and since you often speak about binge worthy series sometimes.. I watched on Netflix all day “THE ONE” OMG I just couldn’t stop. I had my first Covid shot and had some side effects so I think I really watched it all night besides u tubes of core exercises lol. Enjoy it if you see it so good. Based on the scientific premise if a DNA match can truly find your one and only? Soooo good. !!
