Well hello Friday! I’m so happy to see you. For a four day week you were a little slow getting here even with everything I had to get done. Let’s get to Friday Favorites and do some linking up with my friends in blogland.
Kent and I came home on Monday and everything was smooth as silk. Considering my travel history the last month this is a major coup. Hopefully the spell has been broken, the curse lifted or whatever.
Getting our toes done is always a favorite. This was the biggest nail salon I’d ever seen. You could feasibly have 32 women getting a pedicure at the same time and another 18 getting nails done Yes, I was counting all the chairs while my feet were soaking…LOL and why does my necklace always seem to hug my boob like that? #keepingitrealhere
Don’t Katie’s nails look pretty? But that’s not what this picture is really about. We finally got this ring sized for her. This is my original engagement ring setting. Over the past 10 years we’ve done some “tweaking” and upgrading to my ring using my original diamond. When we had it taken out of the ring we had her birthstone (which is also mine) put in and put it away for when she was older. We gave it to her on her 18th birthday which was almost 2 years ago. She’d been asking to have it sized so we finally got around to it. She’s tickled pink with it.
Donuts are always going to be a favorite. We went to a Nashville hot spot called Five Daughters Bakery and got a couple to share. Coconut meringue and chocolate. They have a little filling in them and are what I’d call more of a cronut. Lots of yummy layers.
Friends that are family will always be a favorite. God blessed us beyond measure when he crossed our paths with the Harris family. We’ve had a friendship that has lasted 20 years and thousands of miles. Our kids were in a playgroup together and Elizabeth and I are now dreaming of the day when we live in Nashville and our grand-babies can play together. Won’t we have so much fun?!?!
My dress is on super sale and I love it!
We got to meet Erin’s mom over the weekend and spend time getting to know her. She’s a super sweet lady and I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of her. ?? And P.S. I’m so happy I went ahead and finally got those sandals. I wear them all.the.time. and I’m afraid Katie may try to wear her Birkenstocks under her wedding dress whenever that day rolls around. (many years from now)
Benny had been wanting Kent’s old bike and we finally were able to get it to him when we had Katie’s car shipped to Nashville. Kent took it apart and put it in the trunk. It’s pretty cool to see him driving around with a bike older than he is on the back of his car.
Looking up and seeing these two crossing the street together makes my mama heart smile. They weren’t such good buddies as kids. Actually Benny could barely tolerate Katie, but now that they’ve spent a year together at the same school and are living in the same town they developed the sweetest friendship. This is something I’ve always longed for for them. My brother and I have a special relationship and I want that for these two. They are great sounding boards for each other and support. YASSSS!!!!
Whew, that was a long list. I guess you could say it was a good week. Texas continues to be our prayers and we’ve now added Florida. Be safe friends and head for higher ground. Kellyann, this means YOU!
Have a great weekend!
