What's Up Wednesday February 2023: On a Friday


Oh Besties, I have a lot on my mind these last few weeks and got my weeks messed up with February being such a short month. I thought next week was the last Wednesday of the month, but alas, it is not. So I am sharing What's Up Wednesday and linking up withShay and Shaeffer  today aka Friday. We can also think of this as a Friday Favorites with Erika and Andrea, because there are a lot of my favorites from this month in here too!

Let's chat about all things February before my computer completely goes haywire or I lose track of the weeks again.

What We're Eating This Week

We are in the phase of the year when hockey is finishing up and then lacrosse is ramping up at the same time. It makes things a little confusing and hectic especially when it comes to dinner. This is one of those weeks where we did the Best we could and everyone was fed. 


Monthly Musings February 2023: Warm Weather Destinations/Winter Travel Tips


It's Thursday Besties, we have almost made it through the week. I am going to start this post by apologizing for my graphic above. I always whip up a graphic for Holly and I to use for Monthly Musings. My computer is in a really bad way. So bad that I am just going to get a new one this weekend. Therefore the typos etc. in the graphic are totally on me. 

I don't typically travel to warm weather destinations in the winter because we are a travel hockey family so all of our long weekends in the winter are focused on traveling to the next hockey rink, unless that rink happens to be in Florida which did happen in November. I will try to share my Best tips for you. Let's do this wonky computer and all.

1. Favorite Warm Weather Destinations

We spend our summer time vacation in Hilton Head Island, SC. It is our favorite place period. I also love the Bahamas.


Monthly Musings Topics February 2023-Warm Weather Destinations/Winter Travel Tips

Happy Monday Besties! I hope you have today off, I alas do not. I am up early and linking up with Holly and Sarah for Hello Monday and to share the topics and questions for Monthly Musings coming up on Thursday. February is a short month, so Monthly Musings kind of snuck up on us. 

For February we are focusing on warm-weather travel. We hope you will join us as a writer, reader or both!

I will admit, that this is not my Best graphic work and there is indeed a typo in one of the questions that I cannot fix. My computer is on it's last legs and I decided that this had to be Good enough for this month as my cursor was driving me batty! I don't think any of you come here for my graphic arts skills anyway. 

See you back here on Thursday!


Best Taco Chili


The Super Bowl is this weekend. Are you ready Besties? Oh how I long for the days of the Tom Brady invitational football game so this year I am all about the food.

If you haven't decided what you are having during the Super Bowl,  you are going to want to try my Taco Chili. If you can brown some ground meat and onion and open cans, you can make this chili. It's super easy, totally unexpected and so Good. I have made this twice in the last two weeks and Running Daddy is a big fan. We have been enjoying this over the last few weeks as our schedule has been really crazy. Bust out your crockpot and make some Taco Chili for the big game. Eagles or Chiefs? Leave me your answer in the comments. I am just anxiously awaiting the Dunkin commercial with Ben Affleck. Anyone else?


Friday Favorites: The Bachelor, Home Remedy, Sweetest Coffee Shop and Seasonal Coffee


Friday, I am so happy to see you I could hug you. This week was just a lot. It felt long and at times weird. I was up in Baltimore for a doctor's appointment and while I got the answers and solutions I prayed for, that doesn't mean I have to like them. I am going to do what they suggest, but I am a little sad about it. This week I was also reminded that chauvinism is still alive. I don't want to talk too much about it, but this was not one passing comment that I may have misinterpreted, it was a full-on conversation that was straight out of the 1950's. The energy of this week was just a little weird, and I am so happy to be at the weekend. 

Now I can take a breath, and link up with Erika and Andrea, for Friday Favorites and share with you an old favorite show that that is giving us stress release in our house, an old-fashioned home remedy I just discovered, the sweetest coffee shop you need to find in your community and a seasonal coffee treat. Embrace the weekend and join me for Friday Favorites.

1. The Bachelor

The day of The Bachelor premiere, Hockey Guy had a day where he worked really hard and just needed to chill out so I suggested that we watched the premier of The Bachelor. It was just what we needed. We were laughing, commenting and cringing. I had taken a break from the show for a season or two but this premier brought me back to why I love this show.
