  • A little message from us and our furry friends. It’s more important then ever to practice social distancing because staying home is the best way to not spread or contract the virus. If you think you aren’t sick... you can’t know for sure because symptoms don’t pop up right away. Especially if you have a stronger immune system. If you think you’re too young to be affected... you are wrong. And if you think it’s no big deal and people are overreacting... you are just plain ignorant. So stay home, stay safe, save lives. It’s the only choice at this point. #stayhome #staysafe #stayinghomesaveslives #socialdistancing #flattenthecurvechi
  • Strike a pose, do a workout. Wether it’s in your back yard (if you are lucky to have one) or in your living room, putting on workout clothing WILL MOTIVATE you to work out, I promise! I’m wearing JoyLab from Target (one of my fav brands) it’s super cute, fits great, looks flattering, and is affordable and easily found at Target! I’ve linked it in my @liketoknow.it in case you want to pick it up next time you get groceries delivered from Target #joylab #joylabtarget #activewear #workoutathome 📸 @munopia
  • This recipe I found on www.gimmesomeover.com is super easy and the focaccia bread is so tasty! I know you can make this so next time you’re craving some bread give this recipe a try.
Directions: Add warm water (about 110°F, which you can measure with a thermometer if you want to be sure it’s the right temp) and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough attachment, and stir to combine.  Sprinkle the yeast on top of the water.  Give the yeast a quick stir to mix it in with the water.  Then let it sit for 5-10 minute until the yeast is foamy.
Turn the mixer onto low speed, and add gradually flour, olive oil and salt.  Increase speed to medium-low, and continue mixing the dough for 5 minutes. (If the dough is too sticky and isn’t pulling away from the sides of the bowl, add in an extra 1/4 cup flour while it is mixing.)
Remove dough from the mixing bowl, and use your hands to shape it into a ball.  Grease the mixing bowl (or a separate bowl) with olive oil or cooking spray, then place the dough ball back in the bowl and cover it with a damp towel.  Place in a warm location (I set mine by the window) and let it rise for 45-60 minutes, or until the dough has nearly doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 400°F.  Turn the dough onto a floured surface, and roll it out into a large circle or rectangle until that the dough is about 1/2-inch thick*. Cover the dough with a greased piece of plastic wrap, and let the dough continue to rise for another 20 minutes.
Remove the plastic wrap, and transfer the dough to a large baking sheet.  Use your fingers to poke deep dents (seriously, poke all the way down to the baking sheet!) all over the surface of the dough.  Then drizzle a tablespoon or two of olive oil evenly all over the top of the dough, and sprinkle evenly with the fresh rosemary needles and sea salt.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until the dough is slightly golden and cooked through.  Remove from the oven, and drizzle with a little more olive oil if desired.
Slice, and serve warm.
  • Arguments can be seriously counterproductive when you are spending 24/7 with each other... Am I Right?! It’s the most awkward thing to tip toe around each other trying to pretend to be unaffected by the presence of your partner. It’s something every couple deals with unless you are a unicorn couple and never have an argument because one person is always right ;) but for the rest of us, I’ve posted a blog post on www.simplyandreea.com about HOW TO HAVE CONSTRUCTIVE ARGUMENTS WITH YOUR PARTNER... give it a read #forcouples #relationshipadvice
  • Pictured: me a few weeks ago in my friend’s back yard, enjoying a cup of coffee and listening to the early morning birds chirping. Would have never guessed life at home 24/7 was gonna be my new reality in the near future.
A few days ago I decided to order a new coffee machine because as much as I love Nespresso, when I’m at home non stop I tend to drink coffee like it’s water, more for flavor then effect. So I bought a coffee machine (swipe to next pic to see machine) that brews tea as well as coffee. I settled on this because I have other Ninja appliances and they have never let me down. Also it has a variety of types of coffees (classic, rich, over ice, cold brew, speciality coffee) and tea brews, quantities and love that it can use tea bags and loose leaf tea. (I’ll link my amazon list in my bio) in case you are looking for a coffee machine too 🙂Hoping this will help me drink more tea in the future 🙂 📸 @munopia #saferathome #stayhomesavelives

    Thanks! So my problem is that I’m a huge introvert, and after my girlfriend and I broke up its been extremely difficult to meet new people (since finishing college). However I’m super outgoing, love meeting and engaging people in meaningful conversations. I also feel the best relationships come friendships, they really are! But how do I as an introvert meet someone that could become my best friend the way my ex was? I feel like most girls want that flashy, “manly man” of a guy that expresses himself all over social media about how great he is, whereas that’s never been my type; I’d rather want someone to talk and get to know me because (well, I think I’m pretty fascinating, just like you!) but it feels as though woman these days prefer I market myself on social media so that they can make a decision about me (I guess it’s more efficient than taking the time to get to know someone.) My philosophy has always been to take the time to get to know someone anyway, because you never know, they might just be a really good friend! Do you have any thoughts about this? Thank you!

    Hey. I guess you’re right there. Can I ask you something? You think it’s possible for a girl, to have a lot of male friends? Also when they are in a relationship. What are your opinions?
