Friday Favorites #72


Well the first week of school is under Katie’s belt and she’s already feeling a little overwhelmed. The poor girlie. I’m so glad I’m not in college these days. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t cut it. 

I on the other hand am having a ball running around Tennessee and Kentucky and I’m happy to report there are no travel calamities to share. Sometimes being a grown up isn’t so bad. Hahaha!

So let’s get right to Friday Favorites.


Having fun with this crew in Kentucky. My BFF is a Jazzercise instructor so I got to “jazz” a couple of times while I was visiting her. I got lost during the routine at one point and was doing a little “freestyle” and entertaining Paige…we were on the back row?


Hello cheap gas!!!! It’s the simple things in life that seem to really tickle me. Go figure.


Yesterday two of my very favorites…my mom and dad drove in from Richmond, VA to stay for the weekend and visit. We hadn’t seen them since Christmas and that’s the longest we’ve ever had to go. Katie had something for school she had to attend so she couldn’t join us, but we’ll see her today. My brother and his boys are coming from Atlanta today so we’ll have big time this weekend.


Yes, I found another tiara. We went to my friends ADORABLE store in Franklin, TN yesterday and these little hair clip tiara’s were calling my name. If you live around the Nashville area and have little ones or need a darling baby gift, you’ve got to go to The Little Cottage. They also have an online store and Instagram, so check them out!


I finally got to see Benny at dinner last night. I’ve been in town a week and haven’t been able to see him due to him being out of town last weekend and I left for KY before he got back. Erin also got to meet Gram and Grandad last night.❤️

There you have it friends. Short and sweet this week. The weather has been delightful and so has seeing all my friends and now my family. We will have a big time laughing and being together for the next couple days. To say I am blessed to be able to come here for an extended period of time and visit so many people I love is and understatement. Thank You Bubbie aka Kent for being so generous and allowing me to galavant in the south.?

    Reading that you haven't seen your parents since Christmas reminded me how I take my parents for granted. They live about five miles from us and I'm really depending on my mom to help me pull this wedding shower off tomorrow! Enjoy your time this weekend with your family and friends!

      Thanks Laura! We lived in the same town until 2010 and it's been an adjustment. I hate being on the other side of the country from them especially as they are getting older. Hope the shower was a huge success….I'm sure it was!!!

      I'm thinking I might just need to invest in a tiara…LOL. Can you even imagine? Kent will never let me go for this long again if I come home wearing one. hahaha. I am so impressed that you are going back to school. That's awesome. I have several friends doing that or who have done it pretty recently. You'll do great!!! Hope you're having a great weekend! XOXO

      Aw, thanks Jenny! YES! I'm living it up and having a ball. Hope you're having a great weekend!

      Hi Regine! I most certainly am. I hope you are feeling well this weekend and enjoying yourself. XO

    I definitely don't have college in me anymore! I've thought about going back for a graduate degree and then I'm like, nah. Haha. Enjoy Kentucky! It is one beautiful state if I do say so myself! 🙂

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:47 pm

      Oh my…I definitely would be a waste case. Hope you're feeling okay. It's almost time for us to find out what that sweet little bundle is!❤️

    Sounds like a wonderful week; enjoy all your family visits.

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:49 pm

      Thank you so much. It's been great! I wish my husband could have been here the whole time, but he'll be here Friday, so that will be fun for a few days. Somebody's got to work. Right?? Hope you are having a great weekend!

  6. August 25, 2017 / 7:39 pm

    Looks like you are having the best time, I am so happy for you!Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy and wear that tiara!!!

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:45 pm

      I may need to invest in a tiara of my own? Think it will be to much? LOL I was just telling my friend on our walk this morning before church about our sweet little blogging squad and how much I love all you girls. Hope you are having a great weekend my sweet friend! XO

    It looks like your fitting in lots of special family and friend time while you're galavanting around the south. What a great break for you! Our gas here in Texas has been around 1.90, but now the prices have skyrocketed due to Hurricane Harvey! Have a great weekend!

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:42 pm

      I'm having a ball and thankfully I still have another week to go. I'm so thankful Kent is so sweet about letting me stay so long. Someone here suggested we might want to fill up before the prices go up do to old nasty Harvey. I need to do that. Hope you're safe and managing to have a good weekend. XO

    What fun! I love that so many of your family members are able to come together. I'm sure it must be hard with schedules so it must be so great to be with so many of your loved ones.

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:40 pm

      It sure is Tara! We've had a big time this weekend and I still have a week to go. YIPPEEE!!! Hope you're having a great weekend too!

  9. August 26, 2017 / 1:39 am

    Looks like you are having so much fun! Glad that you're getting some good family and friend time in. You're totally rocking the tiara clip- too cute!

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:39 pm

      I sure am…I miss Kent, but I'm ready to move back to the south big time!!! I think tiara's might be my jam…LOL Hope you guys are doing ok down there. We're praying for all of y'all up here. XOXO

    Yay for cheap gas! I always shop at Kroger and they have a gas rewards program that always keeps my gas around 1.90 a gallon!

    • August 27, 2017 / 7:25 pm

      That's awesome! We have a program like that with Safeway, but gas is just higher in general in CA??. Hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks for coming by and commenting!
