Monthly Musings June 2023:Summer Fun-Vacay Trips, and Adventures


Hey hey Besties! It is officially summer. I know that it doesn't always feel like summer these days, I am looking at you New England and the mid-Atlantic, and that some parts of the country feel like the surface of the sun, ahem Texas. For today's Monthly Musings Holly and I wanted everyone to share all of the fun that is summer regardless of the temperatures. This post has all of the summer travel, cocktails/mocktails, and places we love to visit as the schedule slows down and the days get a little longer. Grab your favorite beverage and join Holly, me, and all of the other talented writers who join us every month for Monthly Musings.

1. Favorite Vacation Destinations?

When Hockey Guy was little, we went to Bethany Beach, DE for a Good ten years. It's an easy drive for us and it was the perfect spot for little kids.

Six years ago we decided we were up for a longer drive and a little more of a true vacation. We started going to Sea Pines on Hilton Head Island and never looked back. At first Hockey Guy was resistant to going anywhere but Bethany, but once he put his feet in that warm South Carolina water and had shrimp right off the boat, he was hooked. I always tell him that the Low Country has seeped into his veins. More on that in the future.


What's Up Wednesday June 2023


Oh June you have been mostly a lovely month. You have given us a strong finish to the school year, a wedding anniversary, two Good trips and lots of hard work for everyone. Since it is the last Wednesday of June I am linking up with Shay and Shaeffer for their monthly link-up What's Up Wednesday. This June post is going to be a little quick because this is a busy week but more on that in a bit.

What We're Eating This Week

We have some travel at the end of the week and I am finishing up a big work project so the dinner plans are a little fluid in the beginning of the week and then a lot of dining out in one of the Best food cities in the USA later in the week. Here's what I can tell you so far:

Monday I was super glad that I put some stew beef with broth and taco seasoning in the slow cooker before I left the house in the morning because I didn't expect to get home so late! I luckily had the meat cooking all day so that we could have easy tacos when I got home.

Tuesday will probably be burgers and dogs with sweet potato puffs along with cucumber, hearts of palm and chickpea salad. I am going to post this salad recipe in July...I promise!

Friday Favorites June 23, 2023: Sleek Shampoo, Sugar-Free Dressing, Unedited Reunions, Best Sports Bar in America, and Lilies


Hey Besties, I am back from a little travel and taking a moment to share a few things that I am loving this week. This week has a little beauty, a little food, a little Bravo, a travel restaurant recommendation and a peek into my garden for lily season. Since it is Friday I am linking up with  Erika and Andrea for Friday Favorites. 

1. Garnier Sleek and Shine Shampoo

At some point in our travels over the last few months I bought a travel size of this shampoo. When we were traveling this past weekend I threw this in my travel bag and used it in the hotel. This is a really Good product. I was not born with Good hair and I have to have the right products. I have been really happy with my Biolage smoothing products that I have been using for about a year and a half but with all of our travel and some car maintenance expenses over the last month, I was looking to save a little money in the beauty budget.

Friday Favorites: June 9, 2023-Three Beauty Products, Morning Walks and a Good Ice Cream Alternative


We made it to Friday Besties! Is anyone else dealing with the impact of the wildfires? It is very hazy here and I am not sure when it is going to go away. Be careful out there until the air clears.

Since it is Friday I am linking up with  Erika and Andrea for Friday Favorites. Cuddle up inside and join me for Friday Favorites.

1. Makeup Revolution Balm Glow

I am literally obsessed with this product. Balms are all the rage right now but most are fairly pricey. This balm is $12. Yup $12 at Ulta and other stores. I have both the Peach Bliss and Sunkissed Nude.
