Friday Favorites: Neil Diamond, Cute Tote, Zoom Happy Hours, Cadbury Bunny, Lilly Earbuds

Hey Besties! We made it through another week in the Covid-19 world. I hope everyone is healthy and safe and adjusting to the new world. I know these days can be tiring and stressful, but I am so glad I have this space to come to and just focus on the Joy. So glad you are here with me.

I am back with Friday Favorites today, linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy. So wash your hands, pour your favorite beverage and settle in for a little fun, because we all need it.

1) Neil Diamond--Washing Hands

I love Neil Diamond so much and he always gives us what we need when we need it. Including this version of Sweet Caroline. Check it out and wash your hands. (Oh and stay home)


Monthly Musings: Spring Holidays & Decorating

Hey Besties, I hope everyone is healthy and safe. Thank you for joining Holly and me for Monthly Musings today. Today we are talking Spring Holidays and Decorating. I think we could all use a break to talk about such pretty things.

1. Do You Decorate for Easter or Spring?

This is a big Yes! We typically host Easter so we do it up big. I think I am going to decorate for Easter a little early this year because we need it. We need some bunnies, we need some colored eggs, we need some happy, we need some Joy

2. What Spring holidays do you celebrate?

Easter all the way! We also have April birthdays in our family including mine and my mom's. 

What's Up Wednesday-March 2020

Hey Besties. Everyone doing Good? I know these are stressful time with COVID-19, working from home, social distancing and potential home schooling for the balance of the year. I am definitely needing to spend time on this site, to keep my mind occupied, connect with you and also find a little Joy. How about you?

It's the last Wednesday of the month and I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. This is going to be an interesting one and a little long, so settle in for a little distraction. 

What We're Eating This Week

With us all being home, we are focusing on eating healthy. For lunch we are keeping it to sandwiches or a grilled cheese with fruit.

For dinner:

Monday-Sausage and polenta which always seems to be in the rotation when I do What's Up Wednesday. It is so easy and so Good. We all love it. 

Tuesday-It's the Great American Take Out

We are trying to support local businesses and restaurants as much as we can during this time. We are supporting a local sports pub this night that is connected to one of our school families. Takeout only right now, but they have a full menu and lots of gluten free options.

Spring Fashion, Accessories and Clean Beauty including a Good Sale

I am keeping with my commitment to blogging on a regular basis and taking time to continue with some normalcy and beauty in our lives. Today I am talking spring fashion and accessories with Stella & Dot and Keep Collective and clean beauty with Ever.

I can't wait to show you some of my favorite items from Stella, Keep and Ever today. Stella & Dot is making things Better because until the end of the month there is a specially curated group of products that if you purchase, Stella, Keep and Ever will give 20% of the purchase price to No Kid Hungry.  The product list includes jewelry, clean beauty and super cute leggings ready to go for this new work from home world.


Get Ready for March Monthly Musings: Topics for Thursday

Hey there Besties! This Thursday is the last day of the month so I hope you will join Holly and me for Monthly Musings. This month we are talking Spring Holidays and Decorating. A really Good topic we could all use right now. I hope you will join us to either link up your blog on this topic or as a reader...or both!

We will see you back here on Thursday for Monthly Musings and I should be back here tomorrow to talk spring fashion, Wednesday for What's Up Wednesday (I missed this one last month) and on Friday for Friday Favorites

Stay well Besties

Wow, what a strange week huh? This week we saw social distancing--which I hope you are taking very seriously, distance learning and a whole lot of major changes in the way we live and work. During this new world, I am committed to keep blogging 2-3 times per week because I need it and I am trying to spread a little Joy during what is a totally unprecedented time. Today as always I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy this week for Friday Favorites. So wash your hands, pour your favorite beverage and take a moment for Joy, because we all need it.

What I am Doing During the Corona Virus Including Shopping for a Cause

I hope everyone is well and that your friends and family are safe during this very odd and kind of scary time. I am going to keep blogging during the crisis because I think we all need it, especially me. Here is what I am trying to do to get through the Corona virus and also do my part. It boils down to work, school work and keeping the economy going especially small businesses.

Work/School Work

Lucking Running Daddy and I can work pretty easily from home. The one thing I thought I couldn't do at home, our IT department took care of late last week.

Since I already work at home a couple times per month here are ideas of how to work more successfully at home:

-Get up at the same time you normally would or even earlier to get some work done.
-Shower and get dressed.
-Try to find a Good place to work. We have it broken up into three locations: Running Daddy in the home office, Hockey Guy in the family room downstairs and I am in the living room.


My Thoughts on The Bachelor This Season

I know things are a little crazy right now, so I am doing my part by social distancing, washing my hands and trying to provide the world with a little Joy by posting on this site. This brings me my thoughts on The Bachelor this season and I have a lot of those.

I am going to give you a lot of random Bachelor thoughts categorized into three topics: The Women, Peter and Barb (aka Peter's mom).


Friday Favorites: Good Hand Sanitizer, Best black pants, 1% Challenge, Best Cookies and S'More Bites


Hey Besties! I know things are a little scary right now with this whole Corona virus thing but let's take a moment to just have a few shreds of normalcy. I am still taking a moment to talk about the things that are bringing me Joy this week and linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy this week for Friday Favorites. So wash your hands, pour your favorite beverage and take a moment for Joy.

1) The 1% Challenge

When we were getting ready for Lent, Hockey Guy told me about the 1% Challenge and recommended that I try it. They are doing it in school and it is just a really Good way to add God's word into your day.

Basically, 1% of your day is only 15 minutes so you pledge to spend 1% of your day focusing on your faith. You can read the Bible, pray, listen to the get the point. It doesn't have to do 15 minutes all at one time, you can break it up.


Friday Favorites: Cold Remedies, Cargo Pants, Good Tea

Hey Besties! I am so ready to exhale this weekend. It's been a crazy couple of weeks in the Good Better Best household and I am looking forward to a slower pace over the weekend.

I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy this week for Friday Favorites.

1) Mucinex Max Cold

Maximum Strength Mucinex® Fast-Max® Day Severe Cold & Night Cold & Flu Caplets, 30ct

For the last week, I have had a straight up, old fashioned, really bad headcold. I rarely get colds, I usually skip the cold and head straight to a sinus infection, bronchitis or even walking pneumonia. This time, it's just a really bad cold.
