Monthly Musings-December 2020


Happy Holidays Besties! Welcome to the last Monthly Musings of 2020. This link up with Holly has truly been a highlight of this year. I love reading everyone's entries and if you read her blog, then as you can imagine, Holly is the Best blogging partner. Are you ready to talk holidays and jumping into the New Year? I sure am.

1. If you celebrate Christmas, what are your traditions?
Well, typically we go to church late in the afternoon and then gather with a group of friends after church for a cocktail party. That will not be possible this year. On Christmas we open gifts, call my family and then typically head over to Dancing Granny's. 

2. If you celebrate Hanukkah, what are your traditions?
I do not celebrate Hanukkah but love the traditions and miracle of Hanukkah.

Topics for Dec 2020 Monthly Musings


Hey there Besties! Typically Holly and I host Monthly Musings on the last Thursday of the month, but since the next two Thursdays are Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, we are making this link up available this Thursday all the way through the end of the year. Please join us, and keep on topic, for our last Monthly Musings of 2020 on Thursday. 

See you back here then!


Friday Favorites: Plumberry Lotion, $50 Cashmere, USS Christmas, and New Christmas Tree


Happy Friday Besties. While I have been here on the site, it's been a couple of weeks since my last Friday Favorites. I have been shopping and trying to shop small as much as I can.  TodayI am linking up with up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that have brought me Joy this week

1) Mrs. Meyers Plumberry Body Lotion

I have been working really hard over the last year to clean up my beauty game. I have really been loving the body lotion from Mrs. Meyers. I used the rain water scent in late summer and that was a Good choice. For fall and winter, I chose plumberry and it is the perfect light spicy fruit scent for this time of year.

You Can't Cancel Christmas


Oh 2020, you are really testing us all the way to the last minute. So many times this year has not turned out like we thought it would. In moments of frustration I have heard people say "what, are we just going to cancel Christmas too?????" There is usually a little bit of a shreaking tone when these words are uttered in most cases. Well Besties, I am here to tell you, you can't cancel Christmas or Hanukkah for that matter.

You see, Christmas is not something that can be cancelled like other dates on the calendar. Christmas is not a baseball game or hockey sleep away camp that you talk about all year. Christmas is not a graduation or a wedding. Christmas is not a vacation or your 50th birthday. These were all very disappointing things that were cancelled in 2020, even in the Good Better Best household. Christmas is so very much more, and thankfully you can't cancel Christmas.
