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?

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 13 // 14 // 15 // 16 // 17 // 18 // 19 // 20 // 21 // 22

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.

Now, how about a GIVEAWAY?! You know how I love to offer y’all the chance to win something. Enter HERE for your chance to win your choice of a whitening system or ultrasonic toothbrush. Wouldn’t it be a great gift to win for yourself or to give-away. #seewhatididthere?


If you missed my post about these sunnies, read it here. I want to share this with you again.  Use this link to enter for a chance to win 50% off any pair of sunnies on the JORD site. If cute, unique, lightweight sunnies are your thing, then these are definitely for you.

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

    Those pearly whites of yours are gorgeous!! Ahhhh Rae Dunn sweetness but I still cannot find that “Nice” red mug, lol. I must’ve been to the Trio, ya know, TJ’s, Marshalls and HG’s dozens of times. They know me by name, lol! I just bought everything to make my Sweet Potato casserole for the Big Turkey day, yum! Looking so great in your outfits and cozy too. Happy Friday beautiful!

    So many cute things. I’ve never seen that ultra-sonic tooth brush before, will have to check it out. Love the sunglasses. I actually just came across an old pair of Ray Ban’s that look very similar. I was just thinking, “Oh, these are in style again.” Have a great weekend.

    It has been anything but warm here this week! We have ice and snow flurries… I am breaking out ALL the layers. Funny enough it’s making me anxious for Christmas and I’m kind of bummed to be waiting two more weeks to decorate (I host Thanksgiving and refuse to have Christmas stuff around until I’m really and truly done with the fall décor).

    • November 16, 2019 / 6:17 pm

      I hear ya’, I can’t decide if I should just go on and do it or not. With Thanksgiving being so late, it really shortens that Christmas decor window. Happy weekend. XO

      • November 17, 2019 / 4:05 am

        This is one year I really would seriously consider just going ahead and decorating early but my family completely vetoed the idea.

    Thanks for sharing your sweet potato casserole recipe! I really want to make that this year. My family doesn’t care for it (unbelievable!!) but I miss it so much I might have to make it for myself. Love your cute outfits this week! And congrats to your son!

    • November 16, 2019 / 6:12 pm

      It’s so easy. I actually did make mine yesterday and stuck it in the freezer. Woohoo!!!! Have a great weekend. XO

    Holy SMOKES your son is FAST!!! I ran my first and probably only marathon a few years ago and I had a goal to finish in under 5 hours and I was 5:05 or something! LOL! BUT, I was really proud of that!!! LOL! It is an awfully long distance. I would def. be proud of him!!! I need to check out that sweet potato casserole, I told my brother I’d make one for Thanksgiving and bring it over.


    • November 16, 2019 / 6:12 pm

      Thanks Carrie! When I told Kent his time, his mouth dropped open. We’re super proud. The sweet potato casserole is so easy, I made mine yesterday. Give it a try. Happy weekend. XO

  12. November 15, 2019 / 7:30 pm

    DANG! Congratulations to your son! That is an AMAZING first marathon time! I hope he keeps one doing more!

    • November 16, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      Thanks Laura! I think he will. I’m really hopeful he’ll do a triathlon eventually. He was a competitive swimmer in high school, took long bike trips on spring break in college and now runs. He’s got all the spokes you need. XOXO

  13. November 16, 2019 / 12:30 am

    Congretulations on your son! That is some achievement! Happy weekend!

      Oh Gentry, you’re just so sweet. Thanks doll!!! XO

  15. November 16, 2019 / 8:08 am

    Your son is amazing. I am not a runner but can totally appreciate that time!!
    And I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving either…especially with our heat. But I’m not complaining…LOL

    • November 16, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      Thanks Jodie. I think so? I know, the heat is pretty nice when everyone else is beginning to see snow. LOL XO

    • November 19, 2019 / 9:03 pm

      Thanks Jodie!!! He is so good at whatever he takes on…mom or not?

  16. November 16, 2019 / 6:42 pm

    Congrats to Benny on his great race! I know how much you are looking forward to Thanksgiving, Girl!

  17. November 17, 2019 / 8:53 am

    Such cute outfits!! Lookin’ good, Blog Mom! 🙂 And I definitely would only eat the topping of that casserole too, HA!

    I am ready for COOLER temps and I want them ASAP! I am seeing the temps drop here and at the coast so that makes me happy. Its November! Its supposed to be cold. And great job Benny! Considering I walked my half marathon in 3:14…..well he kicked Booty! YAY!

    • November 19, 2019 / 9:03 pm

      Today was in the 60’s…of course I never left the house, so I couldn’t tell. LOL
      We are thrilled for Benny! XO

  19. November 19, 2019 / 1:29 am

    Big congrats to Benny – what an achievement, gotta love that boy! Love that rusty pink cardi too.
    Hugs, Mary x.
