Happy Birthday (While In Quarantine)

My birthday is tomorrow!

My plan was to go to Nashville, spend time with my mom, and maybe go to a spa, but now that we're quarantined... that's not happening. I'll be right here at "Chateau de Douglas" or HOME lol.

I still want my birthday to be fun, so I've made a list!

Here's 5 things you can do for your birthday while in quarantine.

1. Make or Pick Up Your Favorite Food

Food is a great way to celebrate your birthday. Make or pick up your favorite food and share it with your significant other and /or children.

- If you live alone, try having a virtual meal with your friends and family.

(Skype, zoom, facetime, imo, etc)

2. Pajama Dance Party

Just because we can't be around people, doesn't mean that we can't PARTY!

Set up a virtual party with your friends and family, pick a theme (pajama party), and dance to your favorite tunes together.

Tip- Try going LIVE on all social media platforms so others can join in on the fun!

3. Game Night

James is very competitive so games are always fun in the Douglas house. Playing board games are an interactive way to bond with the people you love the most.

If you live alone, virtual games have been on the rage for a long while.

Here's a blog that lists "17 of The Best Online Activities". Try it and let me know if you loved it!

4. Movie Marathon

There's no denying a great tv series or movie. It's one of my favorite pass times!

Here's a great list of movies and tv series you may love on Netflix. Click here and here for the ones on Hulu. This is the best time to get caught up on all your favorite tv shows/movies for your birthday.

Tip: Make it an event with- your favorite movie foods (pizza, burgers, popcorns, m&ms, etc)

5. Don't Forget Dessert!

I'm not a "sweets" person, but who doesn't want a cake on their birthday?

You can't go wrong with Baked By An Introvert's Funfetti Cake or Chocolate & Vanilla Birthday Cake.

If cake's not your thing, you can also try "Sprinkle Some Sugars", Glazed Cake Donuts.

Other things you could try are:

- Seonkyoung Longest's "Coffee & Croffle"(I can't wait to try this!)

- Order your favorite sheet cake

- Pick up an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen

- Buy a box cake and your favorite icing.

Also- If you're on the Paleo Diet or Vegan, try this cake or this one!

No matter what you decide to do, try and be creative!

Always with love,
