Effectively howdy, there.

Hiya! Is it Wednesday presently? I have not left the home in a few times. Before we get into the why guiding that assertion, so that this is marginally connected to beauty, this week’s self-care mani is OPI’s Infinite Glow in You Sustain Me.

Lovable, yeah? I’ve had a matter for creamy mauves recently.

We have been hunkered down since Connor’s been seriously sick. 🙁 She lastly caught the respiratory virus which is been surging in our neck of the woods more than the past few months, and it’s been tough on her minor human body.

She has not been sensation very well.

Prolonged tale brief, due to the fact of the pandemic, youngsters her age have not experienced the opportunity to go by way of the typical waves of viruses that occur to them while they’re young. Now everyone’s catching up and finding sick still left and correct.

These days she’s sensation a tiny much better I think she’s made it earlier the toughest component and is eventually on the mend. Fingers crossed.

Painting

In addition to dealing with what we have been calling “fighting the yuck,” it’s been noisy as all heck outside the house. The exterior of our house is at the moment remaining painted (the home homeowners affiliation forces absolutely everyone in our neighborhood to do it just about every couple many years), and for some cause these individual painters are extremely loud. There’s banging, drilling and all kinds of nonsense occurring outside. My nerves are shot!

Chaos in our front lawn!

On the vibrant aspect, though, I can attract the curtains (YAY) and close all the blinds and roller shades so they don’t have to see us donning pajamas 24/7 when we’re within.

Home windows and blinds and roller shades, oh my!

It only took months, but we lastly have all our window treatment plans completed. And now I know plenty of about the entire approach to do it once again if I had to.

Shout out to Hunter Douglas blinds!
Ahh, the messiness of genuine lifetime.

All I have to say is Hunter Douglas all the way! If you’re plagued with indecision when it arrives to property decor (tale of my lifestyle), you just cannot truly go incorrect if you go the Hunter Douglas route. I’m truly happy with how ours turned out.

The best lounge trousers

I acquired a pair of these joggers from Goal for 20 bucks, and they are chef’s kiss! SO Smooth. And they have pockets! I want yet another pair or two or twelve. Haha.

California to Hawaii?

El Hub is actively campaigning for us to transfer to Hawaii. I mean… Homeboy’s been working this angle due to the fact the day I satisfied him (local boys constantly want to go back again, it seems), but currently it is kicked into overdrive. I have mixed emotions about it.

On the 1 hand, the beach…

Advice for teeth staining

I went to the dentist to get my enamel cleaned very last 7 days, and the dental hygienist instructed me that in get to avoid staining from espresso and what not, the best time to brush your teeth is actually *just before* you drink your beverage – not promptly just after.

She told me if you brush immediately right after consuming espresso, it just pushes the liquids into your tooth and stains them even far more. In accordance to her, it is superior to brush beforehand to eliminate all the plaque so that coffee/tea/what ever you’re consuming has a lot less to adhere to.

Anywho. That’s what’s been heading on around below. How are matters your finish?
