Monthly Musings September 2020: Fall and Halloween


Happy Fall Besties! The last Thursday of the month kind of snuck up on me as it fell a little early. Never fret, Holly was here to remind me that today is Monthly Musings and we are talking fall and Halloween this month. How fun! I am so ready for fall and curious to see how you are preparing for Halloween this year. Grab some candy corn and a cozy beverage and settle in for Monthly Musings.

1) Favorite Fall Tradition

I used to say that my three favorite days were Christmas, Easter and the Hawks 5K. The Hawks 5K is race at our old school that Running Daddy helped design and found. He was hoping to finally run the race and hit the course that he helped design but of course COVID got in the way so things are virtual this year.

Topics for September Monthly Musings


See you back here on Thursday for my monthly link up with Holly where we will be talking Fall and Halloween. I hope you will join us to link up, read or both!

Friday Favorites: Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Bagels, Best Slippers, Daylight Sunscreen, Cooler Temperatures, and Block Scheduling

Oh hey there Besties! Are you still here? I promise that I am. I have just been a little MIA lately. I have had some matters to take care of that needed all of my attention and needed to take a pause from this space. All of us in the Good Better Best household are ok, I just have some matters that need my full focus at times. 

This week has been filled with productivity at work, cooler temps, the bailing out of the washing machine (sigh)three times, praying for one friend and Good news from another. I am so ready to step back into this space and provide a little fun heading into the weekend. Today as I do on most Fridays I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that bring me Joy.

1) Trader Joe's Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Bagel

If you are not into pumpkin spice, you can just ease on down the road. I do think there are a lot of kind of weird pumpkin spice items this time of year, but this gluten free pumpkin spice bagels are not weird. They are so Good. A half a bagel, a schmear of cream cheese and you are Good to go for breakfast this fall. 

Monthly Musings: End of Summer and Back to School


Hello! Welcome to August Monthly Musings. Holly and I are so glad you can join us for our monthly link up today. We get together at the the end of every month and throw out some themed questions. In August, we are talking the end of summer and back to school...whatever that looks like. Let's jump in.

1. Do You Have Kids Going Back to School and What Does That Look Like? What Is Your Plan?

Hockey Guy is starting a new school for the first time in 9 years. All of this brings fun new challenges as we navigate high school for the first time and in a pandemic. He will be in the building 2-3 days per week and then will be online the other days of the week. This ensures 50% capacity.

What's Up Wednesday--August 2020


Hey Besties. Here we are at the end of summer and most things look like they did in say...May? We are still plugging along over here and trying to embrace the end of summer, even if this summer looks like no other summer that we have ever experienced. We are doing our Best to get everything done and enjoy these days.

It's the last Wednesday of the month and I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. Settle in to find out what we have been up to this month.

What We're Eating This Week

We have high school orientation this week and the start of hockey with a brand new hockey club. We have the need to have ease and nutrition this week when it comes to meal planning.

Monday-We are going to try Mix and Match Mama's sloppy joe bowls but with ground turkey

Tuesday-Physical conditioning with a long hockey practice means burgers and dogs. This will be an early dinner with plenty of time for things to settle in the stomach.

Wednesday-First day of school and that means the request was for black bean and corn baked chicken tacos.  

Thursday-Brown sugar garlic chicken

Friday-Hopefully take out again from the Lost Dog Cafe. 

Monthly Musings Tops for August--Join Us August 27


Holly and I hope you will join us as a reader, blogger or both for our monthly link up Monthly Musings. This month we are focusing on a little end of summer and a lot of back to school. Who knew what back to school 2020 would look like this when Holly and I came up with this list at the beginning of this year.

I will see you back here on Wednesday for What's Up Wednesday and then on Thursday for Monthly Musings

Weekend Favorites: A Wedding Every Weekend, New Devotional , Trader Joe's Chardonnay, Masks, Skin Peel Pads

 Heather Stillufsen on Twitter | Heather stillufsen, Hello weekend ...

Well hello and happy Sunday Besties! It has been a few weeks since I have stopped by this site. We were on a very safe and very dreamy vacation last week that we all needed. We have been trying to get things done this month for school to start and that and some other things have been taking up my time and thoughts.

Our life has been such that while I wanted to post this piece on early Friday morning like I typically do and about 80% of this was already written, this needed to be something that I need time to finish and post on Sunday. Thanks to all of you who still stop by here.

Now I am back and linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that bring me Joy.

1) A Wedding Every Weekend on Hallmark


Oh what a delightful movie. I so love Kimberly Sustad, I think she is so beautiful, funny and a Good actress. This movie made me laugh out loud. There is a scene with some KT tape, Kimberly Sustad's character is a physical therapist, that had me laughing so hard and texting my friend who is a physical therapist.
