How We Wednesday: Goals/Resolutions


It's Wednesday and I am back in 2018 to link up with Shay of Mix and Match Mama and Erika from a Little Bit of Everything for their new link up called How We. This month we are talking about how we do goals/resolutions for 2018.

I love New Year's and part of it is because I met Running Daddy at a New Year's Day party fourteen years ago. I also really love New Year's because it is a time to stop and reflect about how we can all do life a little Better. I mean we can all be Better, live Better and love Better, can't we. This is not a time to beat ourselves up, it is just a time to hit reset. Here is what I am working on in 2018.

The Blended Blog Asks--January 2018



It's the first Monday of the month, not really counting New Year's Day, so it's time be check in with The Blended Blog Asks. As you can imagine, this month is all about resolutions and new starts with a dash of winter fun thrown in. Feel free to leave your favorites in the comments below too.

1) Resolutions or No Resolutions?

I am all for resolutions. I mean we can all be Better, live Better, try harder can't we?

2) Love snow? No snow?


I don't mind one Good snow per year. I think with the deep freeze we have had lately we might be in for a long, cold winter. The challenge here is, they cancel school at the drop of hat...or make that the drop of one snow flake which can be a little maddening for this New England girl.

3) Name a place you want to visit this year?


Our travel plans are a little bit on hold for right now, but I am looking forward to some family trips this year once we get some things worked out.

Friday Favorites: NYE Outfit, The Bachelor, Tea and Bread



Happy New Year to you all! Friday Favorites has a new look today and it just brings me Joy. Hope you are all having a Good New Year so far. I have high hopes for 2018. Once again I am linking up with ErikaNarci and Andrea to talk about the things that are bringing me Joy this week.

1) My New Year's Eve Outfit

We had a fun get together on New Year's Eve with lots of food, games and cheer. I wanted to wear something fun but casual and this outfit was a really Good choice.

Friday Favorites: Sparkling Wine at Any Price


New Year's Eve is this weekend! So as I link up with ErikaNarci and Andrea for Friday Favorites, I am going to get you all set for sparkling wine at any price point whether you are having a big bash or spending a quiet night with your loves or your girls.  

Many people say they don't like champagne and sparkling wine because it gives them a headache. One of the things I have learned is that because the glass needs to be so thick to preserve the bubbles in sparkling wine, and that glass is expensive, that many times the product inside is substandard at many lower price points.  The key to not spending your New Year's Day in Headache City, is a quality product. Quality sparkling wine doesn't always have to come with a hefty price tag. I have everything you need to celebrate without the headache today.

We all start the holiday season so ready, so excited, feeling like this year we are going to have it all under control.

Friday Favorites: Wine Exchange, Hallmark Movies, Scottish Walk and MoroccanOil


This has been a Good week, but a busy week and I am flat out tired. So as I link up with ErikaNarci and Andrea for Friday Favorites, this is going to be a quick one about just some things that bring me Joy.  And it's the season of Joy isn't it? Here we go:

1) Holiday Wine Exchange:

Cookie exchanges are very popular this time of year and there are even recipe exchanges, but my friend Miss K hosts a wine exchange...yes a WINE EXCHANGE! This was the first year I was able to make it because Running Daddy and I typically attend another party on this night. There is a different theme every year and this year was Star Wars. The basic premise is that you decorate your bottle in the theme and then there is an old fashioned Yankee Swap. 


TBB--The Blended Blog Asks Holiday

Today I am linking up with the Blended Blog for The Blended Blog Asks -- a Good way to start a Monday. Let's jump into these Holiday Theme questions.

1) Real or Fake Tree?

Real all the way. We always buy from a church around the corner from our house and they have the Best customer service.

2) Favorite Christmas Cookie?

This is hard for me because I am gluten free, but Santa is very fond of the printed sugar cookies from Pillsbury!

3) Home on Christmas Morning or Travel?


We are always home.
