What's Up Wednesday August 2022


Happy Wednesday Besties! It's time for What's Up Wednesday where I link up with Shaeffer and Shay and talk about all things August! This month was packed full of all the things headed into the last days of summer and I can't wait to share it with you. Let's talk about August.

What We're Eating This Week

We got home late from a hockey tournament Sunday night so I am a little behind on my meal planning. I also had to push back our Butcher Box until this week so I am not really sure when it will arrive and that is impacting meal planning a bit. Here is what I know we will have this week.


Monthly Musings August 2022: Fall Recipes/Dinners

Fall is just around the corner Besties. Can you smell the bonfires and taste the pumpkin spice everything? I am not hating on it and really ready for fall to be here.

Today Holly and I getting together with the Best group of writers to share ideas about fall dinners and recipes. If you are linking up with us today please link back to us and be sure to visit some other writers who join us. If you could leave comments for other writers too, that would even be Better. Let's dive into the questions now.

1. Easiest dinner you make? Will you share the recipe?

Hands down, taco meatballs are the easiest recipe I make. At this point, I can probably get these taco meatballs on the table in about 30 minutes. You probably have all of the ingredients on hand to make these tonight. We had these on Monday and I love them.

You can make these with ground turkey or ground beef. Find the recipe for these meatballs here.

Friday Favorites Aug 19, 2022: A Good Beauty Item, A Skinny Cocktail, Two Summer Shows and a Childhood Idol


Hey Besties! Happy Friday. It is truly like fake fall around here this week and I am here for it. I literally almost grabbed the pumpkin spice coffee at Wawa this week but decided to give it a few more weeks. Even though we are getting a taste of early fall, I have a cocktail to get you through the last few weeks of summer, plus a Good beauty product for you, two summer shows and then a Goodbye to a childhood idol. I am back for Friday Favorites and to link-up with Erika and Andrea. Are you ready? Let's go.

1. Flamingo Razors

Over the last few years I have been struggling to find a razor I really liked. The brand I was using for the last few years I was not loving, but kept using it because it was easily delivered to the house. Running Daddy is a big fan of Harry's razors and has been more many years. Well, Harry's has a women's line called Flamingo and it is a really Good razor. It gives a really close shave without irritation or cuts. You can purchase at stores or via subscription. This might be my razor for life.


Hello Monday--Skinny Colada Recipe


Happy Monday Besties! I am back from our dreamy vacation in Sea Pines on Hilton Head Island and I am doing a quick stop-in for Hello Monday with Holly and Sarah. Today, I am sharing a cocktail I love on vacation that I believe I have perfected at home thanks to Trader Joe's. Let's get cocktailing!

We love the beach bar at the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head. It is so fun to come off the beach around 3:30 p.m. and have a little cocktail (or Sprite!) before we bike back to our rental house. For the last couple of years I have ordered their Skinny Colada and made a little tweak. Their original Skinny Colada used to have a coconut vodka in it, but since I never really know if a vodka is gluten free (some are not), I always used to ask for one with Malibu rum.
