Friday Favorites

Hey and happy Friday friends! Is it just me, or do Friday Favorites roll around faster every week? I can hardly believe we are just 2 short weeks away from Thanksgiving? I’m not sure if it’s because our weather is so warm, or if I’m just in regular ol’ denial that time is clicking by so quickly. Either way, I’m starting to think of things I can take care of now to lighten my load the week of the big day. One of those things is to go ahead and make one of our favorite side dishes.


It wouldn’t be a holiday without this on our table. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter. Yes! You’ll find it at all of these meals. Up until a few years ago, I pretty much only ate the topping, but I’ve grown up, and now I even eat the sweet potatoes. LOL I shared this recipe several years ago. I’m going to go ahead and make it next week and stick it in the freezer. I shared how I do that in this post. You may already have a version of this in your family, but if you don’t, give it a try. I think you will LOVE it.

This boy of mine ran his first marathon on Saturday and he killed it! He ran it in 3:17:22, was 2nd in his age group, 14th male and 16th overall out of 305 runners. Kent and I are so very proud of him. OH and aren’t the two of them just the cutest?

You know nothing pleases me more than bringing you Rae Dunn goodness. Look how incredibly adorable the red pieces are. I found a mug in Home Goods this week and brought it home with me. I don’t think I’ve seen any of these pieces in store, so if something tickles your fancy…I’d grab it before it’s gone.



Do you remember back in the spring when I posted about the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system? You can read about that experience here. I was really impressed with the whitening system. I used the sensitive whitening system and had great success, so when they asked me about trying their ultrasonic electric toothbrush, I was all for it. I used an electric toothbrush years ago and liked it, but it died and I just never replaced it. I love how clean my teeth feel after using it.

It comes with 2 brush heads and the charging base. It doesn’t take up much space, and that’s a definite plus. I don’t have any extra real estate on the bathroom counter, and I don’t like having a bunch of stuff sitting out.

This would make a great Christmas gift. You’ll be seeing it on my gift lists I plan to start sharing with you next week. Use this code  coasttocoast215 to receive 15% off anything on the Smile Brilliant site.

What I wore this week…YES, I actually remembered to document most days. LOL


There’s absolutely nothing not to love about this outfit. NOTHING! The poncho is so soft, looks good with jeans, skirts, pants or leggings. So yeah, it’s basically the perfect piece to add to your closet, and it’s on sale plus 40% off. It’s restocked, but I don’t know for how long because it keeps selling out. The pants are twill pull on cargos. I wore them to bible study yesterday and I felt like I was wearing pajama pants and nobody knew it. I kept thinking I should just order all the colors. #comfortiskingpeople
