Friday Favorites #104

Hey y’all and happy Friday! Last week I didn’t do my usual Friday Favorites and it sure feels like it’s been longer than two weeks. Never fear, I’m back to normal today. #imsureyouweresoworried

I realized I never shared any pictures from the shower a few weeks ago on the blog. I shared on Instagram and Facebook, so some of you may have seen them, but I thought I’d share some of my favorites today, so I hope you are ready for a photo dump.  Are you going to have a big weekend of celebrating Cinco de Mayo? We are participating in an event called Convoy of Hope on Saturday for most of the day so I have a feeling we may be too tired to do much celebrating. If you are looking for some menu inspiration you can check out this post I did last year.


Fajitas are one of our favorites whether it’s Cinco de Mayo or not and just might be what we have Saturday night if I can muster up the energy to cook. You can find my recipe here.

WOW! I knew I wasn’t alone in my love for Trader Joe’s, but I had no idea y’all would be so receptive to another post from someone naming their favorites. I loved hearing that I’d introduced you to some new items and that y’all shared in the comments things you love. I’ve got to go back through and make a list of new things to try. You can find that post here if you missed it.

I have the best friends and they know how to throw the most beautiful shower and make the bride to be feel so special and loved. It was such a lovely day. The weather was beautiful, the food was perfect, the company was the best. I can’t wait to repay their kindness when some of their kids get married. On a side note, can I tell you how strange I feel to be the first one going through this? Only one of my friends (Dawn) has married children, so I’m the first one of my college girls to be the mother of the groom/bride. So fun to have my tribe marching right along side of me.

I’ve been mulling over the idea of investing in a good hair dryer. I’ve read posts and seen stories from  bloggers who are using and love this T3 dryer. I was thinking about buying the foldable- travel version that’s been on sale, when I happened on the full size at where else? Costco. This one was selling for the same price as the travel size. #score So in my cart it went. I’ve used it a couple of times so far and I am liking it. In the last couple of years I’ve been having trouble with dry, damaged hair and I’m hopeful this baby will help with that. #lookingforamiracle I need a dryer with a good amount of power to dry a lot of hair. I am also picky about the controls crazy as that sounds, and the buttons on this are great. Amazon has the same dryer, but if you’re near a Costco it’s a much better deal.

Are these a hoot or what??? I’m thinking about starting a pool as to when something like this actually becomes a reality.  #timetogetlimber

Nickel and Suede earrings are some of my all time favorites and most worn. Every month they have an earring of the month and this month it’s this beautiful champagne pair for $18 (reg $25). I loved the look of these on everyone I saw them on, but was truly intimidated by the size. (I’m wearing medium) I also worried about the weight. I finally ordered them and haven’t regretted it for a single second. I wear them ALL.THE.TIME. They are soooo light you don’t even know you have them on, and I get compliments every time I wear them. I also have the leopard print and ordered the cork pair this week. #welcometothefamily


I had to come back and add this after I hit publish. Accessory Concierge, one of my other favorite accessory stores is having a Mother’s Day sale with 30% off everything using the code MOM. I have quite a few pieces from here as well that I’ve shared with y’all before, but here’s a little reminder roundup.


And last but not least, our friends at LOFT are having another 40% off EVERYTHING sale (use code SUNNY) and there are a lot of new arrivals, so I’ve put together some shoppable images for you to check out. I know, I know, I’m an enabler. ?

Happy Friday! Happy weekend! Happy shopping! Happy Cinco de Mayo! Happy everything!

      Wore mine this weekend and loved them. I’m a little afraid I’ll break them…are they flexible like the others? I went to Loft yesterday and got a cute dress and eyelet top. I had a $60 reward card that was about to expire. YIKES, can’t let that happen. Happy Monday girlie!! XO

        Oh yes, so flexible! $60 rewards card? Holy cow! No way can you let that get away!!!

          Behind much on comments? Yep, used it and already returned both items….LOL

    I need one of those cupcakes stat! I’m having a serious battle with craving sugar the last few days! I switched to a better dryer several years ago…another thing I didn’t realize I was doing was getting the end too close to the dang round brush…because of course I threw away the dang tip to the dryer. (insert eyeroll) I couldn’t get over how light the N&S earrings are…I need some summer colors. Have a super weekend lady!

    • May 7, 2018 / 7:43 am

      I know, I only started using the end tool on the dryer in the last year or so…duh. What are we thinking. Gosh, I know! I am totally loving the N&S earrings. I kinda want the camo pair. Happy Monday!! XO

    Well, we had our celebration tonight at our local Mexican restaurant. :o)) Good looking group at the shower and we went for about 10 years marrying off our two and all of our friends kids. It was busy, busy but lots of fun and I hosted more parties than the law allows. Happy weekend!

    • May 7, 2018 / 7:38 am

      The fun is just beginning for my group. First it’s baby showers and then bridal showers. What a blessing to go through life with some of the same people for both. Happy Monday!!! XO

    The shower looked like so much fun! How wonderful to be surrounded by your friends during this process (not just family or the bride and groom’s friends)! i had a T3 flat iron back when I used to straighten my hair, and it was the best! I hope you have the same success with that hair dryer! Happy Saturday Lisa! 🙂

    • May 7, 2018 / 7:38 am

      Hi Jess! The shower was precious! I’m afraid now I’m going to want another t3 product. Did you get rid of yours? Hope you had a wonderful weekend!! XOXO

    Laughing at the “Selfie Heels” hysterical! I have been eyeing the Nickel and Suede leopard earrings too 🙂

    • May 7, 2018 / 7:34 am

      Can you just imagine? What a hoot. Oh Holly, you need those earrings. I was so hesitant, but I wear them a lot! Happy Monday! XO

    Woo, so much fun stuff in this post! Love all the photos from the shower – everyone looks so pretty and happy! I’m glad you mentioned your Trader Joe’s post! I missed it the first time so I had to go back and take a peek. I always love seeing people’s favorites there!

    Those selfie heels are too funny! And you’d better believe I am heading to Costco ASAP! My hair is super thick and takes forever to dry. It’s been feeling pretty parched lately too. This sounds like a great dryer!

    • May 7, 2018 / 9:02 am

      Oh my gosh Laura! Go online and order it. I literally just was checking before responding to you to make sure it was available for order on their site and it’s $20 off right now. SUCH A GREAT DEAL!!! XO
