Friday Favorites: Lottery Dream Home, Get Dressed, Be a Light, Essential Personnel

Heather 🌸 Stillufsen on Instagram: “Hello 🌸 April ...


Whew, the weeks feel so long don't they? This week our Governor put us under "stay at home" orders until June 10. Yes, I said June and yes, I know it is the beginning of April. We are just trying to take it one day at a time here in the Good Better Best household and embrace that we are safe at home and not "stuck at home."

As I head into my birthday weekend (and mom's) and it is a big birthday, I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy. And yes, we can find Joy in every day. 

1) My Lottery Dream Home

HGTV's My Lottery Dream Home | HGTV

Hockey Guy found this gem of a show on HGTV.  We have watched it from time time, but have really gotten into it over the last few weeks. Some of the stories are really sweet, such as the lady in Las Vegas where all she wanted in her dream house was "stairs." There was also the guy who won money off of a scratcher while he was in the bathroom. Seriously, this show is a really Good escape. To quote Hockey Guy "this show is going to get us through the Corona virus quarantine." You need to check this show out.

Get Dressed Challenge


I started this little challenge on Instagram and also Facebook this week. I thought I might feel a little Better about things if I really took a few minutes and put on a cute but work from home friendly outfit and some light makeup. I know that it's pretty much only Running Daddy, Hockey Guy and our lab Stormy who will see me, but I think a little way to get back to my daily routine might be a Good idea. I am going to need a little fashion happy because the Governor said this week that we are basically under stay at home orders until June 7. That's right June 7...and it is only the beginning of April right now.

If you want to join me daily, spread some Joy and share your cute outfit, just follow me on Instagram @pcrichey and on my Good Better Best Food Facebook page, tag me and then #GetDressedChallenge.

Friday Favorites: Neil Diamond, Cute Tote, Zoom Happy Hours, Cadbury Bunny, Lilly Earbuds


Hey Besties! We made it through another week in the Covid-19 world. I hope everyone is healthy and safe and adjusting to the new world. I know these days can be tiring and stressful, but I am so glad I have this space to come to and just focus on the Joy. So glad you are here with me.

I am back with Friday Favorites today, linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share what brings me Joy. So wash your hands, pour your favorite beverage and settle in for a little fun, because we all need it.

1) Neil Diamond--Washing Hands

I love Neil Diamond so much and he always gives us what we need when we need it. Including this version of Sweet Caroline. Check it out and wash your hands. (Oh and stay home)


Monthly Musings: Spring Holidays & Decorating

Hey Besties, I hope everyone is healthy and safe. Thank you for joining Holly and me for Monthly Musings today. Today we are talking Spring Holidays and Decorating. I think we could all use a break to talk about such pretty things.

1. Do You Decorate for Easter or Spring?

This is a big Yes! We typically host Easter so we do it up big. I think I am going to decorate for Easter a little early this year because we need it. We need some bunnies, we need some colored eggs, we need some happy, we need some Joy

2. What Spring holidays do you celebrate?

Easter all the way! We also have April birthdays in our family including mine and my mom's. 

What's Up Wednesday-March 2020


Hey Besties. Everyone doing Good? I know these are stressful time with COVID-19, working from home, social distancing and potential home schooling for the balance of the year. I am definitely needing to spend time on this site, to keep my mind occupied, connect with you and also find a little Joy. How about you?

It's the last Wednesday of the month and I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. This is going to be an interesting one and a little long, so settle in for a little distraction. 

What We're Eating This Week

With us all being home, we are focusing on eating healthy. For lunch we are keeping it to sandwiches or a grilled cheese with fruit.

For dinner:

Monday-Sausage and polenta which always seems to be in the rotation when I do What's Up Wednesday. It is so easy and so Good. We all love it. 

Tuesday-It's the Great American Take Out

We are trying to support local businesses and restaurants as much as we can during this time. We are supporting a local sports pub this night that is connected to one of our school families. Takeout only right now, but they have a full menu and lots of gluten free options.

I am keeping with my commitment to blogging on a regular basis and taking time to continue with some normalcy and beauty in our lives. Today I am talking spring fashion and accessories with Stella & Dot and Keep Collective and clean beauty with Ever.
