Fast Friday Favorites

Hi friends! Welcome to this weeks edition of fast Friday favorites. I didn’t want to leave y’all hangin’ with no post. #imsureyoudbedevistated #lol The headliner is that I’m enjoying being in Nashville with my peeps.

I didn’t take an actual picture so I had to do the best I could with taking a screenshot of my story. I drove Katie to school yesterday so I could use her car and then picked her up in the afternoon. She had a really long day, 2 tests and a cantankerous professor. She asked for donut holes, and I was happy to oblige. Getting to drive her to and from school brings back some sweet memories, but is way more fun now than back in the day.


I ordered an air mattress and had it sent to Katie’s apartment so I would have a place to sleep. I’m staying part of my visit with her this time. This mattress is pretty cool because it’s up off the ground. I’ve slept one night on it, and it was good. I’m going to add a little more air tonight, but it’s definitely better than other air mattresses I’ve used in the past and the price point is great.

Now can we just take a minute to talk about how cute she had it fixed for me when I got there…and a chocolate on my pillow. What a sweetie!

These girlies need a vacuum. They had one, but it quit working, so Amazon to the rescue, and it will be here today. I just ordered it yesterday. I read a bunch of reviews and finally decided to go with this Bissell. I’ll keep you posted.


I need new pair of compression panties, aka suck it in shorts. I love to wear these under all of my dresses to smooth anything and in lieu of a slip. I just feel more secure and sure when I’m wearing them. Zulilly has been offering free shipping and these are a steal of a deal.


OKAY! Here’s where you need to pay attention. #winkwink Victoria Emerson is having another BOGO. Remember how we feel about BOGO? We don’t want this lame business that’s buy one, get one half. No-no. This is straight up buy one, get one. #yesplease #christmasgifts #planahead

    Loved watching your video on Insta yesterday with your sweet girl- you are the best mom! That is a serious air mattress-wow- looks so comfy!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:14 am

      Thanks Holly!! I am soaking in every minute with her…and getting to see my son and DIL a lot too. We had a girls day (the 3 of us) yesterday, and it was so fun. Happy weekend! XOXO

    Aww such hospitality. I’m so happy you’re happy. Have a ball!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:14 am

      Thanks friend. She’s a keeper. Hope your weekend turns out better than the weather man is predicting. Enjoy your getaway!!! XOXO

    I’m glad you’re having fun! Air mattresses have come a long way. My husband slept on one for quite awhile while he was in TX w/o me–until I insisted I wanted a better one when I came to visit! Hahaha!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:03 am

      So much fun! Isn’t that truth about air mattresses. I just pulled night 3 on it. It’s good…but I won’t be sad to be back in a real bed in a few days. LOL Happy weekend! XO

    Wow, that air mattress is so thick. We have to buy a new one ever few years. We get pretty good ones, but they still don’t last (of course, they have to withstand teen sleep over parties). Have a great weekend.

      We had a couple of Eddie Bauer air mattress for years that were ok, but this is definitely better and the price isn’t bad either. Happy weekend! XO

    We bought an air mattress like this when we first moved into this new house since our furniture wouldn’t be delivered for days. It was good for a day or two, but after 5 days I was happy to have a real bed!! Just call me old!!
    How sweet your daughter put a chocolate on your bed….you trained her good!!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:03 am

      Thanks Jodie! I’d like to think she learned a thing or two from me?I agree about the air mattress. I just spent night 3, and while it’s good for an air mattress…nothing compares to a real bed. HA! XO

    That is adorable that she put a chocolate on your bed and had it all made and ready for you. I am definitely going to have to look for an air mattress like that.

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:03 am

      Isn’t it?! What a sweetheart. Yes, a taller air mattress is so much better. I should have talked about the pump being IN the mattress. You can’t lose it and I think it’s much more efficient. XO

    Girl, look how sweet Katie is to you!!! You deserve that chocolate, for sure, especially ordering her a new vacuum! I need to check out those spanx haha after three children and Lyme, my tummy is just SAD.

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:03 am

      She’s a sweetie and I am loving getting to spend so much quality time with her. You are for sure not alone on the sad tummy. ??‍♀️I know you are soaking in every single second of having your sweet soldier home. I loved all the pictures of his homecoming. Have the very best weekend. XO

  11. October 11, 2019 / 6:16 pm

    I just love that you got to drive Katie to and from school just like the old days. That air mattress looks really good, and how sweet that she made it so nicely. Have a wonderful time – I know you will!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:02 am

      I think it’s pretty special too, Tanya. I doubt most college moms get that opportunity. Have a great weekend! XO

  12. October 11, 2019 / 8:00 pm

    Katie fixed that bed up so sweetly! We have a queen mattress like that and it’s so much nicer than the lower ones! And I love that they blow up and deflate themselves!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:02 am

      She’s a sweetie! Yes! I also love that the pump is IN the mattress…you can’t lose it and I have a feeling it’s more efficient. XO

  13. October 11, 2019 / 11:26 pm

    Enjoy your time there! I am afraid I meer those suck it in shorts! Happy weekend!

    • October 12, 2019 / 7:02 am

      Thanks Nancy! We all need the suck it in shorts. LOL XO

  14. October 12, 2019 / 6:31 pm

    Yay for being back in Nashville! That’s so sweet that Katie fixed up your air mattress for you! The last time I visited my friend in Chicago, I slept on an air mattress, but her dog really enjoyed using it as a trampoline, haha. Hope you don’t run into that problem! 😀 Have a great weekend!

    • November 6, 2019 / 4:37 pm

      Yay for sure!!! No dogs…thank heavens. I love them from afar. LOL

  15. October 13, 2019 / 6:03 pm

    Hope you had the best time in Nashville! The fixed up bed is too cute!

  16. October 13, 2019 / 9:38 pm

    How fun that you had a sleep over at your daughter’s!! We have one of those air mattresses and they really do provide a decent sleep. Easy to blow up and take down. You are a sweet mommy to treat the girls to a new vacuum. Amazon is just so handy sometimes!!

    • November 6, 2019 / 4:37 pm

      Thanks Leslie…and I even ran the dang thing. LOL Amazon is a little too handy sometimes. HA!
