Friday Favorites #71

Happy Friday my friends!!! Okay, you are going to want to read this one once you get to the bottom. I promise, you WON’T believe it!

But first let’s find out what made me chuckle and happy this week and talk about Friday Favorites.


This isn’t so much me, but it’s definitely something I could hear Katie saying…that girl is something else.?


I felt pretty good when I realized my shoes, socks and weights were all color coordinated. 



Bath and Body Works had a buy 3 get 3 offer the other day and I stocked up on some things. I tried this clay body scrub and love it. It exfoliates and lathers. I used it on my dry elbows and legs and they felt so much smoother when I got out of the shower. 


This falls under the category of being able to laugh at yourself. Keepin’ it real here friends. When Katie asked if I wanted her tiara I was like, “YES!”…here’s her Snapchat.


So let me bring you up to date on our travels. Katie and I got to the airport yesterday at 11:00 for a 12:40 flight. It was already delayed when we got to the airport but they said they were going to hold the connection for us (and some others). Well it kept getting delayed to the point they would no longer be able to hold the connection so they pulled all of us from that flight and had to reroute us. Getting into Nashville right now is a challenge because all the flights are booked due to the eclipse. If we wanted to get there before Saturday our only choice was to take a flight to Las Vegas last night and then to Chicago. We got to Chicago around 1:00 am and our flight to Nashville leaves at 5:35. Seriously?!?! Can you even believe this? So here we sit at 1:31 in the morning. Katie’s watching Gilmore Girls and I’m blogging. And our new friend “Flossy” is jumping around like an endless ball of energy.

Have you ever heard kids singing “this is the song that doesn’t end, it just goes on and on my friend”? Well that’s our them song but insert the word day for song.

Meet little Miss Flossy. I gave her gum on the first flight and so when we got off the second one she asked for more.? I traded her gum for a picture. She’s the cutest little ball of spunk you’ll ever meet.


So there you have it. I bet you’re thinking you never want to travel with me because I must have the worst luck ever. We’ve never had issues like this before and I’m going to believe the return trip will go much smoother.

Have a great weekend y’all and cross your fingers that by the time you are reading this we are at least on our way to Nashville for the last leg of this trip if not already there.

      I had a black travel cloud over me. We got here and the weeks been great. I'm going to cross my fingers and toes that our return flight on Labor Day will be much smoother. Hope you've been having a great week!

    Yes!! Just saw your Snap and you are on your way!! Yay! Have fun!!

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:43 am

      Hi Snap friend!!! We always know what the other one is up to. I'm trying to use Insta stories more though…we gotta' get you over there doing that. XOXO

    Wow! I love to travel, but not like that. 😉 And I love that the Tiara cheered you up. Haha!

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:44 am

      For real! I sure hope I have better luck getting home. It's hard to be sad when you're wearing a tiara…LOL

  4. August 18, 2017 / 2:29 pm

    Not having much luck are you? Hope Nashville is giving you a ticker tape reception!

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:45 am

      Aww, thanks. I'm living it up in Music City. Hope your week has been smashing!

  5. August 18, 2017 / 5:20 pm

    Darn for recent travel issues ! LOL I'd still travel with you ! Love the photo of you wearing the tiara
    Thanks for keeping it real 🙂 Have a fabulous weekend ! Safe travels 🙂

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:46 am

      I'm happy you'd still travel with me…I think everyone else might just bail. It's pretty hard to be grouchy when you're wearing a tiara…LOL Hope you've had an awesome week with your sweet grands!

  6. August 18, 2017 / 5:38 pm

    You were sooooo close to me, I would've driven 2 hours last night to see you!!! Sos sorry it was a yes getting to Nashville!! Wishing you and Katie girl luck getting moved in. Thinking of you so much!! Laughing at yourself is the best way to live life!! You are the BEST!!! Need to get me some of that exfoliator, I need a good scrub, lol!! xoxoxo and lots of Hugs!

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:27 am

      You know what? It's funny you'd say that because I figured I was pretty close to you. So near and yet so far?. I hope you've had the best week and are all adjusted to your new normal again. I guess the good news is I'm getting weaned off my girl gradually. I'm so behind this week and now I need to try to rally and get a Friday Fav for tomorrow. Oh the life of a blogger. LOL XOXO

  7. August 18, 2017 / 5:46 pm

    Oh no! That is terrible! Silver lining: you are getting a ton of one on one time with your girl before she starts her new year. Hopefully you guys can keep the frustration and fatigue at bay. Easier said than done I bet.

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:24 am

      Well here it is time for another Friday Fav and I'm just getting around to last weeks sweet comments. We're here safe and sound. She's moved in and things are off to a big start. I hope you've had a marvelous week. XO

    I think you should have worn a tiara on your flight, I mean seriously if they realized you were royalty none of these shenanigans would have ever taken place I'm quite sure. At least you have smooth skin thanks to that body scrub, which BTW I must get, and you look spectacular! How about that new friend of yours? What a cute girl, I swear I love the fun spirit in kids. They make everything better, right? That's what I tell myself when I get to work each day, they just make my heart happy. Well I certainly hope you and Katie are safe and sound in Nashville and having a wonderful time!

    • August 25, 2017 / 4:23 am

      I know, right??? Hahaha. I'm so far behind on my blog comments?. I hope everyone will hang in there with me while I'm on my long visit. I ❤️ Nashville!!! Happy almost Friday. Now I've got to try to whip up a blog post for tomorrow. XOXO

  9. August 18, 2017 / 9:27 pm

    Unbelievable! I hope you arrive safe and sound soon!!!

  10. August 18, 2017 / 11:49 pm

    That body scrub looks just heavenly! I will have to try that and see if they are still running the special and stock up.

    Enjoy your weekend with your girl!


  11. August 19, 2017 / 12:18 am

    Love the tiara pic! Yes, you are 100% right- I will never travel with you! You need to get that curse lifted ASAP! Totally want to try that B&BW clay scrub- sounds awesome! Hope you got to relax some today!

    • August 25, 2017 / 3:37 am

      WHAT???? You won't be my travel buddy. I'm hopeful my luck will change on the return flight. I'm having a ball!!! Happy Friday Eve!

  12. August 19, 2017 / 1:24 am

    Omg you are seriously having the worst luck with traveling lately! That's awful! But at least you're staying positive! I've been super grumpy lately and need to take your "bad attitude" quote to heart, haha. Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

    • August 19, 2017 / 4:13 am

      Maybe you need a tiara?…it helped me…LOL. Sorry you've been grumpy and hope you're feeling happier soon. Have a great weekend Jess! XO

  13. August 19, 2017 / 8:51 pm

    I don't travel often and when I have, so far have had good experiences. I'm pretty sure I'd choose driving from now on if I were you! Ha. Just kidding. Hope you guys have an awesome time!!!

    • August 22, 2017 / 11:38 pm

      What are the odds we'd have two crazy trips in a row??? Hopefully the return trip home will be much smoother!

  14. August 21, 2017 / 12:37 pm

    The little girl's parents were probably so grateful that you were playing with her and being such a good sport!
    We got delayed on our flight to O'Hare last summer, missed our connection, and spent 2-5 AM sleeping at the airport Hilton.

    • August 25, 2017 / 3:34 am

      She was a hoot and we were entertained by her. Flight delays are such a pain, but I guess it's just part of the travel game. Happy Thursday!
