Friday Favorites #66

Hey friends! Happy Friday and all that jazz. You know how some weeks I say it went by so quickly? Well let me tell you that this week went by at warped speed. I seriously can barely believe it’s already Friday again. Are you ready to find out what made my Friday Favorites for this week?


Let’s start with a little Friday Funny.

This reminds me of this meme…

Making cupcakes is a favorite. I made a couple of batches for cupcakes for our little friends 2nd birthday.

If you are looking for a new drink to try at Starbucks ask for an Iced Latte with Ristretto shots, Stevia and caramel drizzle. Delicious!!! (It pays to have a daughter who’s a barista to guide you.)


Our friends that have been visiting this week went to Yosemite to a cabin for some hiking for a few days.  When they arrived at our house I had a cooler waiting for them filled with fun snacks to take. I’m so happy to have the chance to repay some of the kindness they continually show to us whenever we are in Nashville. 


Did you take advantage of free Slurpee day on 7-11? We did!


bell sleeve top / Kut jeans 

Katie and I hit Nordstrom yesterday for a little trying on. I’m not gonna’ lie. The selection in our store wasn’t the greatest and I was a little bummed. It hasn’t slowed me down from ordering online though.

We were both looking around and then met in the dressing room and had picked the same shirt.

pleated ruffle striped top / cold shoulder sweatshirt

bell sleeve cozy fleece top / tie sleeve sweatshirt

The bell sleeve top is made of the same material as a top I purchased in the winter and it’s one of the softest tops ever and a favorite. This one feels equally as cozy and will perfect when the weather turns and you want to be wrapped in something warm but look cute.

 cold shoulder sweatshirt / Caslon frayed hem jeans

I loved these pants and ordered them in the light indigo. This is another really soft and comfortable top as well. It’s kind of a sweatshirt that you could make super casual with ripped jeans or shorts or more polished with pants like the ones I have on here.

 double ruffle sleeve shirt

 Free People split back turtleneck

So we both loved this and ordered it for Katie in the rust color we tried on and I ordered a grey/black. (it’s hard to tell which it will be online) Free People on sale is always a favorite.

So there you have our afternoon of trying on. I loved having a buddy. Do you feel like I say that a lot? It’s because it’s true. Too bad I’ll be flying solo again in the fall. For now, I’m just going to soak up every single minute I can.

You can see yesterday’s round up of sale picks here.

    Too funny as I am in Starbucks line now and had I read that about the drink I would've ordered that! You tell that sweet girl of yours to keep those drink ideas coming! I love the top you guys got, it's such a cute cut! I was a little disappointed by the selection this year in the catalog but there were some more things online. Our closest Nordstrom is two hours away, but I guess that's a good thing, LOL! Your cupcakes are so darn cute! Have a beautiful weekend you gorgeous babe!

      I was disappointed too, Andrea. However I still managed to spend more than I should have…go figure. LOL Next time you'll have to try that drink. It's similar to a Caramel Macchiato, but less calories…YIPPEE!!! XOXO

    I literally took a picture of my screen with the Starbuck's drink on it so I'll know what to order next time. That place intimidates me so I'm glad to have what I need in print -ha! You are such a great hostess! I bet your company really appreciated that thoughtful cooler filled with snacks, what an awesome idea. So guessing by your face in the picture I take it you didn't like the double ruffle blouse? LOL I'm crazy about the Free People top you both got and I adore that blush colored cold shoulder sweatshirt. I placed an order but not for anything heavy weight. You and Katie are so precious together! I hope you have a terrific weekend sweet friend!

      Wow, I'm late on this one…sorry! I went and saw her yesterday at work and got another drink like that…yummy! (and they were sampling brownies. I wanted to grab the plate and high tail it out the front door. So delicious) Our friends did love the cooler. It was really the least I could do. They are so gracious to us and I go and stay for extended periods of time at their home. Having friends like them isn't something you can take for granted. It's a special relationship. Hope you have an awesome weekend beautiful friend!XOXO

    Those cupcakes are EXPERTLY decorated! 🙂 I love all the tops you tried, especially those with the bell sleeves. I'm thinking those might be a way for me to wear long sleeves here in hot Texas (even in the winter) with a little more "air flow" in the sleeves. Have a wonderful weekend!

      Aw thanks Tanya! Cupcakes are a fun canvas to play with. I have a feeling our winters might be similar to yours. I like the mild temps, but sometimes I miss not having to bundle up. (I can't believe I just said that…LOL) Have a great weekend!!!

    OMG Popcornopolis! Our neighbors gave us that brand's caramel corn and their zebra popcorn and it is AMAZING! So fun for you to have a shopping buddy! My shopping buddies usually veto everything I try on. I wanted a tulip hem tank last spring and Trip was MORTIFIED that it would show a sliver of my back. Hope your shopping buddy is a little more positive than mine! Have a great weekend!

    • July 22, 2017 / 4:08 pm

      Goodness, I just found these comments that were buried in my email. UGH! That popcorn is surprisingly good for bagged pc. My shopping buddy isn't shy about throwing up a big ol' veto either. Sometimes I listen, sometimes I don't. LOL Happy Saturday. Hope you are enjoying some pool time (wish I was)

    Cute cupcakes 🙂 And that 1st top is perfection !! Happy Friday 🙂

    • July 22, 2017 / 4:04 pm

      Thanks Tammy! I love to make cupcakes. So fun! Lots of good stuff to be had in the sale! Have a great weekend!! Happy to find you again!

  6. July 14, 2017 / 10:40 pm

    I hope you got that double ruffle sleeved top! It looks fab on you!

    • July 22, 2017 / 3:39 pm

      Oh thank you Kait! I passed on that one, I thought it was a little overwhelming…and I'm not a huge fan of ironing…LOL Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great weekend! XO

    Aw! So fun that y'all got to shop the sale together! I love Free People! If only their clothes were really, FREE, right? HA!

    • July 17, 2017 / 12:11 am

      I loved having her along. She's not really a shopper which leads me to ask if share any DNA…LOL. Yes, Free People should be FREE!!!

    Okay – that first meme is me. All the way. Especially right now as I'm trying to train my backfill for when I am on maternity leave! Haha. I need to work on letting go of control!! Those cupcakes look scrumptious and I am loving those tops. I so wish we had a Nordstrom close by. I think we'd be good friends. Happy Friday to you!

    • July 17, 2017 / 12:05 am

      I think we'd be good friends too, Trista! I just love our little blogging community! Hope you've had a great weekend!

  9. July 15, 2017 / 10:33 am

    I love all of the tops you tried on- they look great!

  10. July 16, 2017 / 10:03 pm

    Love all of the items you tried on from Nordstrom!! Our store didn't have a good selection either but yet I somehow spent more than I needed to – mostly online 🙂 So much fun to have Katie there with you to shop! And what a cute idea you had with the cooler and snacks – you are so sweet! I bet they totally loved it!

    • July 16, 2017 / 10:34 pm

      Thanks Kristi! They were so sweet and did really appreciate it. I can't wait for all of my boxes to start rolling in. I'm sure the UPS guy is going to be shaking his head…LOL
