Friday Favorites X 5

Wait…it’s already Friday again???

Somebody please slow down the time. It’s only 5 weeks until graduation and that seems to be the main focus in our house right now.

Katie is neck deep in AP exams and Wednesday was Benny’s last day of classes making his junior year of college in the books.

Where oh where did my babies go???


I’d just love it if someone had a time machine and I could go back and live some of these sweet days with these two cuties all over again.

Okay, I’ll stop and move on before I turn into a big ol’ pile of mush.



It’s time for Friday Favorites


This granola.

If you are a granola fan, you’re going to want to give this a try. I stumbled on it in Costco a couple of months ago and picked it up on a whim.  


Unfortunately our Costco has quit carrying it, but I found it at Target and Whole Foods.

Why YES, that is a yummy little piece of DARK CHOCOLATE in there. Stir a spoonful or two in some yogurt and enjoy!


This chalkboard that hangs in my kitchen. I made it out of an extra cabinet door from our last house. I have a real love affair with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and that’s what I used for this and then chalkboard paint for the center. I’m able to change out the sayings to go with holidays, celebrations or just whatever makes me happy.

I love this new tee I got from Loft. It’s cotton on the front and kinda silky on the back, but the sweet pleated back is my favorite. I’m a sucker for details like this.

I wore it to church with these pants (but forgot to take a picture)

These pants have the perfect amount of stretch and are super comfortable. I do recommend sizing down one size because they stretch out. I bought a pair last year from Loft in the same style and they have really stretched out, so this time I remembered to size down.


Baccalaureate is coming up in a few weeks and we were asked to send in pictures throughout our kids high school years for a ball fest slide show. 

This is one great group of kids and I’m going to miss not seeing them once they all leave for college.



Benny made the Tennessean on Saturday. 

What a hoot!!! He and some buddies went down to cheer on the runners of the Nashville Marathon. I absolutely never know what this guy is going to do, but I do know he sure makes his mama happy anytime I get to see his face♥

Feel free to add him to your prayers next week. He and a team of engineering students are going to Guatemala on a mission trip to build a bridge . This is his 2nd time to Guatemala and his 3rd mission trip during his college years. Last year they went to Honduras and built a bridge as well. He really has a heart for doing mission work like this and has expressed an interest in helping to lead these kind of trips once he graduates.


Hope you have a great weekend.
