Monthly Musings November 2023: How We Holiday


Are you ready to kick off the holiday season Besties? I totally am! Today, Holly and I are getting together with a group of talented writers to share how we celebrate the holiday season. We want to hear about all of the holidays. I personally love to learn about different holidays and the traditions they hold. Ok, let's kick off the holiday season Monthly Musings style!

1. Favorite holiday traditions?

Even though Hockey Guys is not little anymore, the elf does still make an appearance at our house. He doesn't do anything too crazy at our house but he does make an appearance and show up in a different part of the house every morning.

The last few years we have also gone to church on Christmas Eve around 6pm and then gone out to dinner just the three of us. It has been a really nice way to start Christmas and just have a quiet evening and reflect on the night.

We also adopt a nun every year and fulfill her Christmas list. The things she asks for are so simple that they warm my heart. This is probably Running Daddy's favorite Christmas tradition.


What's Up Wednesday November 2023


Did November fly by for everyone else? This has been a Good month and I am so ready for the holiday season. Here on the last Wednesday of November, I am linking up with Shay and Shaeffer for their monthly link-up What's Up Wednesday. Grab a hot chocolate or cup of coffee, light a candle and settle in for What's Up Wednesday.

What We're Eating This Week

I am keeping it real Besties and sharing that because we have a really busy hockey schedule this week I don't have a very solid meal plan for the week. I can tell you that on Monday we just did burgers and hot dogs with salad, fruit and tater tots. Tuesday will probably be baked chicken tacos. Wednesday and Thursday are totally up in the air but I am thinking that one of those nights we might do breakfast for dinner with pancakes, bacon and fruit. On Friday night we will figure something out on the way home after the game. 

As you all probably know, I like to have a meal plan because it just makes the nights run more smoothly when I get home and works Better nutritionally. Some weeks, you just need to go with the flow. This is one of those weeks.


Hello Monday -Monthly Musings November 2023 Topics: How We Holiday


Happy Monday Besties! I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was filled with fun and those that you love. We had a really Good break. We had some food, some fun, time with family and friends and thankfully rest. I am in a season of sitting in my gratitude and just enjoying some unexpected blessings.

We are finally in the holiday season and all three of us in the Good Better Best household are especially excited for Christmas this year. For Hello Monday today I am linking up with Holly and Sarah  to share the topics for Monthly Musings coming up on Thursday. This month our topic is How We Holiday. We want to hear all about how you celebrate this holiday season. The more diverse, the more different takes on the holiday season the Better in my book. 

Friday Favorites November 3, 2023: Two Good Shows, Ms. Christmas, Cute Shoes and Clean Fall Home Scents


Brrr Besties! It literally went from summer to winter in a matter of days around here. How about where you live? Over the weekend I had the air conditioner on and yesterday morning I clicked the heat on to take the edge off because it was 58 degrees in our house. Running Daddy thought I left a window open, but that was not the case, it was just full-on cold. Now the weekend is here and I am ready to chill, make some food and watch a little hockey.

This week for Friday Favorites, I am linking up with Erika and Andrea with two shows that I am loving, a Good Hallmark movie, shoes that will elevate any outfit but are also comfortable and my favorite Mrs. Meyer's scent for fall. Are you ready? Let's Go!

1. The Golden Bachelor

This show is a total delight. With all of the bad stuff happening in the world right now, and there is a lot of bad stuff, The Golden Bachelor is a little ray of light. Gerry, from what I can tell, is a truly genuine guy who is looking for a second chance at love. I also find Joy in the way that the women support each other.
