Thankful Thursdays --All Things June

Ah June. So many things brought me Joy in June. Holly and I provide prompts and themes for each month but we also are all about the free styling too. In June I am going combine the prompted themes from above but then also share a whole bunch of things that I am so very grateful for this month.

-The end of school. I have mentioned before that school can be harder for Hockey Guy than it is for others because he has dyslexia and other learning differences. This last term he got in a really Good groove and ended the year pretty strong. I think he has a sense now of how to work with his accommodations and what he needs to do well. 

What's Up Wednesday--June 2019

Hey there Besties! June flew buy and was packed full of activity and fun. I am sure you all feel the same way and hope you had as much fun this month as we did. It is the last Wednesday of June, I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday! Pour your favorite beverage and settle in for what's been going on around here...because it is a lot.

What We're Eating This Week

I am still trying to figure out our schedule this week so there will probably be a lot of easy dinners at the Good Better Best house. This dinner plan could also go out the window this week due to schedules.

Monday-Sausage and polenta with steamed broccoli--which I feel like is on the rotation every week for this same post. Sorry Besties!

Tuesday-Hockey Guy and I will do something very easy as Running Daddy has marathon training

Wednesday-Chicken pesto pasta

Thursday-I am supposed to be going out with my girlfriends so the boys are on their own

Friday-If the weather cooperates, take out at the pool


Friday Favorites-Go Smile, New Book, Good Movie, Best Trader Joe's Brownies

These weeks are starting to fly by and we are in full summer mode around the Good Better Best household. It's Friday so I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to chat about the things that are bringing me Joy this week. 

1) Go Smile

Go Smile Teeth Whitening Gel

The truth is, I struggle with my teeth. After having really beautiful teeth growing up, I mean I never even needed braces, as an adult I struggle with my teeth. My health challenges have really contributed to my problems with my teeth and I have a lot of staining on my teeth that don't make them pearly white. I also have a ton of sensitivity so that makes whitening really challenging. It's why I get very self conscious about my smile especially when it comes to blogging.


Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Nothing says summer like lemons and blueberries! Since I am usually up and out of the house for my commute pretty early, I love the ease of a muffin for breakfast. This recipe is based on my cranberry orange muffins that I posted earlier this year.  These muffins are light, lemony and Good. Oh and you can make them gluten free too...but you don't have to. 


Friday Favorites--Things About Us at Year Fourteen

I had wanted to write this post earlier in the week but with the end of school, I got a little too busy to post on our actual anniversary of June 11. We have been together for fifteen years and married fourteen this week,  that being the case, I am rolling my anniversary post into Friday Favorites and linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci. This post is my favorite things about us...Running Daddy and me, the little things that bring me Joy

1) Morning Coffee

Every week day and pretty every weekend morning, Running Daddy and I start our day with coffee together. Running Daddy makes the coffee and we get up really early during the week. I am always up at 5:00 a.m. and he is usually up earlier but is always up by 5:00 with me. We hang out together and drink coffee downstairs in our family room and just chat. Sometimes it is big conversations, sometimes about the schedule for the day or the week, sometimes we are just catching up or talking about the headlines of the day.


Friday Favorites-Summer Cocktail, Bachelorette Music, Cookie Monster on Waze

Aaaah weekend. Hello! So glad to see you. I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci for Friday Favorites and sharing what is bringing me Joy this week. 

1) Getting Back Our Weekends

It is finally that time of year when we have our weekends back. Being a hockey family takes a lot of time. Our season runs from September until March. That's a long time and then we headed right into lacrosse. We are finally at that point when we can have real weekends. Bring on the sleeping in a little bit and trips to the farmers market!

Thankful Thursdays-Finding Gratitude in an Orthopaedic Boot

So this link up was supposed to happen last Thursday, but with everything going on with my foot, Holly was like...girl, let's just do it next week. That my friends is why she is such a Good blogging partner for me. She just sets me straight when I am going a little haywire and trying to do too much.

So we are going to do this as an early June Thankful Thursdays link up and I so have a lot to be thankful for. Our prompt was for Motherhood/or the End of School, but as you know, Holly and I keep it pretty loose around here and just want you all to embrace whatever you are thankful for and just link up with us. This month  my Thankful Thursday involves an orthopaedic boot.
