Monthly Musings: Spring and Summer Fashion

Hey Besties, I hope everyone is healthy and safe. We have made it to the end of April! Thank you for joining Holly and me for Monthly Musings today. Today we are talking Spring and Summer Fashion and I think we need a little distraction don't we? Let's take a break, dive in and talk about pretty things.

1) What are your five must have items for spring and summer?

One- A great pair of white jeans. Perfect for work or play.


What's Up Wednesday April 2020

Hey Besties. Everyone doing Good? We are still safe at home here in Virginia and are most likely under stay at home orders until June. In a weird way, I am getting used to it. We are taking things one day at a time and finding ways to entertain ourselves.

It's the last Wednesday of the month and I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. Settle in to find out what we have been up to this month. What we have been up to is a lot and nothing all at the same time. Can you relate?

What We Are Eating This Week

We have been getting produce boxes from one of the local restaurant wholesale produce distributors for about the last three weeks and it has been so helpful. They have a connection to our school and got creative and changed their business model to help their company and our community at large. We pick up in the parking lot of one of our local churches and the process is seamless.


Get Dressed Challenge Week 5

Wow! Welcome to week five of the Get Dressed Challenge. I cannot believe we have been at this for five weeks and how many beautiful women have jumped in as well! Let's get to this.

Still coming up with a lot of options for jeans and cargos, but I did sneak in a pair of leggings at the end of last week. I did dress up those leggings a little bit.

This is a perfect example of shopping in my closet last week. This cable knit poncho has been a Good option to grab for many years. I knew it was going to rain later in the week so I took the Get Dressed Challenge outside to highlight this pink staple with jeans.

April Monthly Musing Topics for Thursday 4/30

Hey there Besties! This Thursday is the last day of the month so I hope you will join Holly and me for Monthly Musings. In April we are talking Spring and Summer Fashion. A really Good topic we could all use right now. Are you wearing your cute outfits or are you athleisure chic? 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.  I think I am going to move the Get Dressed Challenge to Tuesday this week so I can hit What's Up Wednesday and then I will be back on Friday for Friday Favorites. Whew!

Stay well Besties


Friday Favorites: Skinny Pina Colada, Gluten Free Cookies, Beverly Hills Housewives, Get Dressed Challenge and Christian Yoga

Heather Stillufsen on Twitter: "Sometimes you just have to let it ...

We are in for some rain over the next few days. It is April after all but I have enjoyed being outside during the pandemic. It's Friday and I think we all need a little distraction, so I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what is bringing me Joy this week. Rain or no rain.

1) Skinny Pina Colada

The beach club where we stay in Hilton Head makes the Best skinny pina colada. I have been trying to duplicate it or at least come close and now I think I have a Good substitute.

Get Dressed Challenge: Week Four

 Welcome to week four of the Get Dressed Challenge. I cannot believe that I have been at this for four weeks. Truthfully, I am not super comfortable with selfies, which is why I don't do a ton of fashion posts. I think I am getting Better at it and my main point of the Get Dressed Challenge is to help people get routine back in their day and find a little Joy through a cute outfit.

Let's jump in and look at what I am wearing and also our special guests this week.

What I am Doing During the Corona Virus Part 2

20 Coronavirus Jokes That Will Make You Laugh | Mvslim

Well, here we are in Virginia where schools are closed for the year and we are on "stay at home" orders until June 10. Yes I said June, and it's still April. Here in the Good Better Best household have bee following the rules and staying home unless we really need to go out. My last update was early on and about a month ago, so here is an update on what we are doing during the pandemic.


Friday Favorites: Cute Mask and Gloves, Yoga on Demand, New York Housewives, Get Dressed

▷ @heather_rosehill - Heather 🌸 Stillufsen - Happy Friday ...

Hey there Besties! I hope you are well and are just taking things one day at a time. I know I am and it is the only way I can work my way through this. We are safe at home and staying at home is a luxury. It is a luxury for us to be able to work at home and to know that Hockey Guy's distance learning is up and running and working so well.

It's Friday and I think we all need a little distraction, so I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what is bringing me Joy this week. We all need a little Joy right now.

1) Gretchen Scott Shopping Gloves and Masks

Indian Summer Grocery GlovesIndian Summer Double Faced Mask

In addition to making beautiful tunics and other resort clothing, Gretchen Scott Designs is now making masks and shopping gloves. I ordered these right away and cannot wait to get them. I think we are in this for the long haul, especially with my health issues, and if I am going to have to wear a mask, I would like it to be cute. 


Get Dressed Challenge Week Three

Welcome back for week three of the Get Dressed Challenge. I am actually having a lot of fun with this but the Best part is that my friends are joining in, tagging me in their social media posts and sending me their photos.

Friday Favorites: Good Chilean Wine, Cute Camo Bag, Resident Care Bags, Million Dollar Listing and the Best Whoopie Pies

▷ @heather_rosehill - Heather 🌸 Stillufsen - Hello Weekend ...

Happy weekend Besties! I so love Easter weekend. Like a lot of us, our Easter is going to look a little different this year but we are going to make the Best of it. Our day will be live streaming of Mass and pick up Easter dinner but I do think I will add in my Get Dressed Challenge and dress for dinner. 

As I do most Fridays, I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy

1) Cono Sur Viognier

Cono Sur Bicicleta Reserva Viognier, Colchagua Valley, Chile

If you are looking for a wine that is a little different but at a Good price point, the Bicicleta Viognier from Cono Sur is an excellent choice.  I bought this at Wegman's a few weeks ago as a total impulse purchase and have bought several bottles since.

Get Dressed Challenge--Week Two

Hey Besties! I hope everyone is doing well and safe at home. I have week two of my Get Dressed Challenge and I even have two of my girlfriends who are going to join me to show you their stay at home style.

Before I get to this week's Get Dressed Challenge, I want to talk a little bit about the challenge. First and foremost, this is a no pressure zone.  The point of this challenge, is for people to feel Good about themselves. I know that a lot of people are feeling anxious during these times and I am one of them. I have found that when I started to go back to a little bit of my morning routine of picking out an outfit and getting dressed, including a little light make up, I felt Better. One of my friends told me last week, she was in this same boat, feeling anxious after watching the news, and when she did the Get Dressed Challenge she said it really helped. 

Hello Monday--Big Birthday Safe at Home Edition

Hello Monday and Hello Week 3 of Quarantine

Happy Monday Besties. This weekend I had a big birthday, like a really big birthday. I knew that things would be a little different because we are under "stay at home" orders in our state until June 10. I was totally Good with this and just wanted to enjoy the day.

I am linking up with Heather, Lindsay, Tanya, and Johannah to embrace Monday and a new week and share a little bit about my weekend.

I got up and had coffee with Running Daddy and did a little Million Dollar Listing with Hockey Guy. The boys bought me flowers and I was really enjoying the beautiful weather and loving the day.  My sweet friend dropped a bottle of prosecco on my door step in the late morning. 


Friday Favorites: Lottery Dream Home, Get Dressed, Be a Light, Essential Personnel

Heather 🌸 Stillufsen on Instagram: “Hello 🌸 April ...

Whew, the weeks feel so long don't they? This week our Governor put us under "stay at home" orders until June 10. Yes, I said June and yes, I know it is the beginning of April. We are just trying to take it one day at a time here in the Good Better Best household and embrace that we are safe at home and not "stuck at home."

As I head into my birthday weekend (and mom's) and it is a big birthday, I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy. And yes, we can find Joy in every day. 

1) My Lottery Dream Home

HGTV's My Lottery Dream Home | HGTV

Hockey Guy found this gem of a show on HGTV.  We have watched it from time time, but have really gotten into it over the last few weeks. Some of the stories are really sweet, such as the lady in Las Vegas where all she wanted in her dream house was "stairs." There was also the guy who won money off of a scratcher while he was in the bathroom. Seriously, this show is a really Good escape. To quote Hockey Guy "this show is going to get us through the Corona virus quarantine." You need to check this show out.

Get Dressed Challenge

I started this little challenge on Instagram and also Facebook this week. I thought I might feel a little Better about things if I really took a few minutes and put on a cute but work from home friendly outfit and some light makeup. I know that it's pretty much only Running Daddy, Hockey Guy and our lab Stormy who will see me, but I think a little way to get back to my daily routine might be a Good idea. I am going to need a little fashion happy because the Governor said this week that we are basically under stay at home orders until June 7. That's right June 7...and it is only the beginning of April right now.

If you want to join me daily, spread some Joy and share your cute outfit, just follow me on Instagram @pcrichey and on my Good Better Best Food Facebook page, tag me and then #GetDressedChallenge.
