Friday Favorites - Corona Edition



I wanted to share some of my favorite things helping me keep my sanity during this time!

I've already shared about my hammock, aka my new habitat. I may or may not be in it while I'm typing right now. Ok, you know I am. I've had a few people ask for a link for it... so here it is:

Trust me, you won't be sorry if you order it.



There are a few podcasts I've been listening to fairly regularly right now. I've been a long-time listener of Annie Down's That Sounds Fun Podcast and she and Eddie Kaufholz have been doing a daily TSF Quarantine Podcast. It's raw and real and funny. It's one of my very favorite things! If you're not listening already, you should... just look up "That sounds fun" on your favorite podcast app. (Also, following the hashtag on twitter is good for a giggle most days too :) ). 


So another favorite podcast is a new discovery for me that will actually reveal a guilty pleasure of mine.... get ready... haha. So I'm minorly obsessed with with Royal Family. I really like following along with the latest royal news. And I found a fabulous podcast to listen to keep up with all things royal... its light and fun, includes a bit of royal history, doesn't seem to biased towards one royal or another and specifically isn't ugly about the royals which I really don't like.


So, if you are like me, and like following the royals, I highly recommend giving this pod a listen.

Another thing I am loving right now are bubble baths at night with a face mask and candle. I turn the lights off, light a candle and just let the stress melt away (or try to... you know...).

This is my favorite face mask.... They have it at my Walmart pickup in sample packs or you can get it here on Amazon:



Have yall seen the #worldofhearts movement? I love it so much. It started by a family in North Dakota as a way of spreading love during this difficult time. Basically it is cutouts of colorful hearts attached to windows facing a street where others can see it. If you want to cheer up your day, you should search the hashtag #worldofhearts or #aworldofhearts and see the delightful pictures. 

Monday was a really rough day around here. It was the first full day of distance learning for the kids and it was overwhelming to say the least. So we took a much needed RESTART for the day and I decided to cut out hearts and spread some love on our front window. Archer was the perfect little helper. 


 

Yall know I love a nice cup of tea, and my current favorite tea is this Ginger Peach Tea from the Republic of Tea. I like it because it is naturally sweet and fruity. I have found it at most grocery stores including Walmart, Target, Publix and Whole Foods or you can order it here: Ginger Peach Tea. 

 

Finally, my Friday Funday Facebook videos with Nicole have been my FAVORITE! They are so much fun! Basically I feel like I'm living out my dream of being a podcaster... ha! If you havn't watched yet, you should check it out on the Cottage Hill Kids Facebook Page. You can watch it live on Fridays at 10:00 or the videos always post afterwards. 


Happy Friday friends! I hope that you are continuing to look for joy amidst the gloom right now. Maybe one of these ideas could help you as well! Know that I am praying for you and your families!

  1. Love the hearts on the window idea, and that little Archer is simply too cute! Hang in there, Carrie, and God will get us through this.
    Blessings!
