A rundown of what we're doing,
watching, reading, coveting.
Here's what's got our attention this week.
  • How are you holding up in the midst of this crazy time in the world? I’m feeling a little unsettled. Our school is closed today, and now we have spring break for two weeks. We’re going to do our best to keep ourselves occupied while sadly but appropriately socially distancing ourselves. Friends are posting activity ideas (loved the 5k idea!) in the event of school closures. I’m loading up on craft supplies my kids haven’t used in a while: duct tape, popsicle sticks, googly eyes + scratch papers. If you’re looking for activity inspiration, here are some places I find good recs: @theartfulparent, Cosmic Kids Yoga videos, @kristinatoddlerapproved, @artbarblog .

  • I watched the first episode of Love is Blind this week. I was SKEPTICAL going into it and for many of the first minutes. Felt uber cheesy. I mean, it is uber cheesy! But woah did I do a 180 fast. I had full body chills by the end, and now I can’t wait to watch more! 

  • This episode of the Armchair Expert spinoff Monica + Jess Love Boys interviews Dax Sheppard + Kristen Bell’s couples therapist, Harry, and is filled with lots of relationship nuggets I’ll be thinking about for a long time. Definitely a re-listen contender!

  • Clare V, one of my long time favorite brands just launched a HUGE collaboration with Anthropologie, which really pushes her into the lifestyle realm. I’m especially into these headbands and this chair. 

  • India often gets fixated on one book and we read it over and over and over again. Right now her favorite is Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena. I love reading her this story because it really drives home what we need to appreciate and what isn’t worth fretting over in a very sweet way. It also involves a soup kitchen which opens the conversation for India and I of what some people are fortunate enough to have and what others do not, and how we can help them. It’s great for age 2, 3, or 4 (and maybe 5!).

  • At 39.5 weeks I’m trying not to get overhyped by news or social media hysteria, and just stay aware and calm, and do the things that actually matter--like wash my hands. This has me overthinking how gross MY PHONE is (something we all know, all the time, and kind of ignore). I can’t stop thinking about how I touch it nonstop on the train, come home and wash my hands, and then go BACK to touching my phone !! So what did washing my hands do ? I’m buying this for peace of mind. The other tip I’ve found most interesting during this is to sip water all day. That if the virus lives in your throat it will begin to affect your lungs, but if you wash it down constantly, your stomach acid will kill it.
