Monthly Musings February 2024-Surviving the Winter Months


Happy Leap Day Besties! How fun to Monthly Musings on Leap Day. Today Holly and I are hosting our linkup party and talking about surviving these last few days of winter. It is more like fake spring around here and a cold snap could be just around the corner, so we may need these tips any day now/

1. What do you do in the winter that brings you Joy?

In the winter I like to use our fireplaces and light candles. It just brings a sense of warmth and calmness like nothing else. I really like it when I have an hour or so to be in the house alone with my candles and the fireplace on and maybe some music.

What's Up Wednesday-February 2024


February, I am not going to lie, was a little weird. There were a few ups and downs with a few things that made us really scratch our heads. We are all doing ok and we got some Good news as we headed towards the end of this month.  On this the last Wednesday of February, I am linking up with Shay and Shaeffer for their monthly link-up What's Up Wednesday. Let's do this.

What We're Eating This Week

Monday-I have acupuncture after work so everyone is on their own. I have frozen meatballs, french bread pizza, Niman ranch barbeque and berries in the fridge. No one will starve around here.

Tuesday-Marinated chicken thighs and veggies sheet pan meal.

Wednesday-Mini meatloaves, roasted potatoes and salad.

Thursday- Tacos with black beans and salad.

Friday-We have wine pickup for wine club and then we are stopping by a party. Definitely need to figure out food for Friday night.

Friday Favorites February 16, 2024: Two Shows, Good Hair Product, Valentine's Day Decor and a Sweet Treat from Trader Joe's


Hey there Besties, I am so ready for this weekend. All three of us need a weekend to rest and engage in some self-care. It's been a few weeks since I linked up with Erika and Andrea for Friday Favorites and I am so ready to to share my fun list with you today. Today's list is all light-hearted and fun. I have two shows I am obsessed with, a hair product I just reviewed, my Valentine's mantle and a gluten-free French treat from Trader Joe's. Let's slide into the weekend and get ready for Friday Favorites.

1. Feud: Capote vs. The Swans

This limited series has everything I like. A true story in a period setting, a rockstar cast (we missed you on our screens Demi Moore), amazing costuming and gorgeous production quality. I am a week behind, but I am really enjoying this series. Is anyone else watching Capote vs. The Swans

Three Unique Chilies for the Super Bowl


Super Bowl Sunday is almost here. Are you here for the game, the commercials, the entertainment (Reba!!!) or to see if Taylor Swift makes it to the game from Japan? No matter why you are tuning in, the one thing that we can all agree on is that the food is a very important part of Super Bowl Sunday.

Chili is always a staple of football season and while I love a classic chili with ground beef or turkey, a tomato base and black beans, today I have three of my favorite chilis if you want a twist on something different for the the big game. You could even make a classic chili and then one of the recipes I am sharing today as a second option. Down, set, hike...let's make some chili!
