Hey y’all and welcome to Friday and Friday Favorites. Yesterday I was border line giddy all day knowing that 2 weeks from tomorrow is the big day for Erin and Benny. We are really in countdown mode, and it’s just so exciting. I’m loving hearing from some of our dear friends from years ago that are coming and we are going to get to see. It is going to be such a fun time. It also means it’s time to seriously get my ducks in a row. I’ve got a list of things to get done and I want to start marking them off…IN SHARPIE…LOL. #listmakerforlife
I almost forgot this weekend was Mother’s Day with all the other things swirling around in my head. While these meme’s may no longer apply to me since my kids are older (but I certainly remember these thoughts), you younger moms will probably totally be able to relate.
I still can’t use the bathroom with the door closed because I got so used to having it open when my kids were little.?
Friday means Friday Favorites and I’ve got a random roundup of this and that, but lets start with this….
We had our end of the year brunch and sharing day at bible study yesterday. I whipped up my favorite coffee cake to take. This is seriously the best coffee cake mix E-V-E-R. We all love it. It’s super simple and super delicious. Add it to your grocery list!
I’m kicking around the idea of getting on the straw bag trend and this is the one I’ve got my eye on. A scarf tied on the handle or a ball fringe tassel thingy (that’s the technical term) would be super cute too.
Okay, stay with me here. I received this highlighter in one of my ipsy bags and I was excited to try it. Well here’s what came from that.
It just confirmed how much I really like this highlighter that I’ve been using for over a year. This one came in a Sephora Play box and I still love it. It’s the perfect amount of sheen and creaminess. My favorite place to use it is under my brow bone.
These are among some of my favorite and latest accessories I talked about in Wednesday’s collaboration post with my blogging twin, Kellyann. If you missed that post you can catch up here.
I’ve been eyeing these bracelets for oh so long. Well I received an email (imagine that) the other day and if you bought 2 items you got a free necklace. FREE Kendra Scott? Sign me up. As luck would have it I had a $75 gift card so these two beauties ⬆️ went in my cart and this necklace ⬇️ did too. This is very similar to the Elisa necklaces I have, only larger with a longer adjustable chain. I ended up only having to add-on $40ish dollars. Yes-sir-re-Bob. The bracelets are perfect for everyone because they are adjustable. Since I have these baby wrists, I can squeeze them tight enough to fit and I’m happy to report they are beautiful and I love them!
Here’s a funny story though. Kent had told me earlier this week if a package showed up on the porch to leave it alone. Hmmm, I wonder what that could be?? I’d been waiting on this package to come and last night I mentioned it to him and that I was going to have to call the company. Well guess who had hijacked MY package. Yep, the jig is up, in it came from the garage and I guess now we kinda know what I’m getting for Mother’s Day. LOL #thebestlaidplans
So there you have it friends. My short and sweet favorites for this week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I wish all my blogging friends a happy and relaxing Mother’s Day. I hope you are treated like the queens you are.
