Friday Favorites #82

Happy Friday friends. Here we are and it’s already the 10th of November. Are you in as much disbelief as I am? Katie and Erin (Benny’s girlfriend, if you’re new around here) come home a week from tomorrow and Benny, the poor working man will come in on the next Wednesday. Yes, that means that Thanksgiving is a mere 13 days away.

I’m going to do a full post of Hawaii pictures next week. It’s hard to believe Kent and I have been talking about going there for over 15 years and now it’s come and gone. It.was.WONDERFUL!

Seeing as how this week was a short one for me here at home, I’m guessing my favorites will be abbreviated too. Let’s find out?


It’s no secret that Katie and I communicate A LOT through Snapchat. I love getting snaps from her. Now that she’s nannying I get some pretty funny ones from her and the littles she keeps.

And I also get quite a few with Luke in them. You didn’t hear this from me, but so far, so good on the boyfriend front.?


Remember I talked about how Shelly introduced me to this wide angle lens for cell phones?

 Well first of all, thanks Shelly, it worked like a charm. I used it along with Katie’s selfie stick and was able to get pictures of us that I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. Did I feel like the Queen of Cheese-land with my selfie stick and lens all rigged up? Why yes I did, but I pretty much just kept telling myself, “you’re never going to see these people again”. Hahaha!


Getting Snaps and seeing pictures from friends of all the beautiful foliage in the South right now is a favorite and makes me really miss seeing the turning of the trees. It does not however make Kent miss raking leaves.???


 I decided I’d run get my nails done the day before we left for our trip. I just went in thinking I’d get shellac and the girl convinced me to get the new SNS dipped nails. She said it contained vitamin E and calcium and would help strengthen my nails vs. the way shellac seems to make them weaker. The dipped nails won’t peel off the way shellac does after a few weeks. I love it and I love the color. Millennial Pink. (I have cracked 2 of them?. One I was able to just file the cracked part down and the other one I just did yesterday, so I’m going to have to wait and see what happens.)


If you follow me on Instagram (and why wouldn’t you??), then you saw this post yesterday. I’m going to share this outfit next week here, but let’s just say I was so happy to finally have it be cool enough for me to wear this Free People tunic.


I also shared this outfit earlier this week. These booties are one of my favorites things from the Nordstrom sale this past summer.

And speaking of Nordstrom, they are having a Fall sale right now. Here are some things you might like. I’ve ordered several things I’ve been watching. 

Have you started Christmas shopping? I’ve been picking up a few things here and there and we brought back quite a few things from Hawaii.

I’m trying to decide if I should throw my arms up in the air and take the plunge and decorate for Christmas early. I always wait until after Thanksgiving, but I’m kinda getting the itch to just do it minus our tree. We won’t be here for Christmas this year, so on those years I don’t put one up. What do you think? Have you started decorating?

Have a wonderful weekend friends!
