Last Friday Favorites of February

I don’t know about you, but I am not sad to see February come to an end. We can see that beautiful spring light at the end of the tunnel. Here in California, our Bradford pear trees have already bloomed. Spring just makes me happy, and therefore the last Friday favorites of February also make me happy. HA!

Friday Favorites

Of course I don’t have to tell you why this is the very first favorite of the week. This was Tuesday night before I left on Wednesday morning. I love these three and every single minute I get to spend with them.

I did a little more decorating in Katie’s apartment while I was visiting. This table had been neglected, and needed some love. I added a large glass jar, picture frame and faux plant (that looks very real). I think it turned out really cute.

Blurry picture, but yummy almonds. Almonds are a great snack, especially for people who are living a low carb lifestyle. I really like these Marcona almonds. They are more tender than regular almonds, and the roasted salted taste is delicious. They’re wonderful on their own, but ironically I had a salad while I was in Nashville that had them on it, and I will definitely be using them like that in the near future.

Last year I saw these at Costco, and didn’t grab one right away. Well this year, I didn’t let that happen. I bought one the weekend before I left for Nashville.

Friday Favorites

Kent sent me this picture Monday of them. I’m surprised how quickly they bloomed. They are so beautiful and once they finish blooming, I’ll put the bulbs out in one of the flower beds.

Some of my favorite comfy clothes come from Aerie. This is the new spring sweatshirt. It’s a great weight for spring, and the material is a fun corded texture. Goes perfectly with jeans now, and shorts later. (currently on sale for 30% off) OH and I’m still loving my new sneakers. I wore them a lot while I was on my trip.

Aerie sweater

As long as we’re talking about Aerie, how about this sweater?! I am in love. This is just like the sweatshirts I’ve been wearing all winter and L O V I N G, but in sweater form. It’s just the softest knit. You might feel like you’re wearing a baby blanket. It comes in 5 other colors, and as of last night they were 30% off. Sweaters like this are exactly what I like to wear as spring approaches. They’re warm, but not too warm, and the length makes it legging appropriate. #majorscore I plan to wear mine with these leggings.

snakeskin mules, Friday Favorites, Coast to Coast

EEEKKKK!!! I am all kinds of excited about these new snakeskin mules. Are they cute or what?! I wore them all day yesterday at bible study, and they were super comfortable. They have 1″ heel, so they are a smidge dressier than a flat-flat, but still casual. These come in 3 snakeskin prints and 3 solids, and now I want another pair. If you’ve been thinking about adding snakeskin to your closet, these are a really great option.


If you missed the other posts this week, I shared a great new look from XCVI here, and all about Bloglovin’ here.

    I am so glad that you enjoyed your trip to Nashvega$ and that you got to see those beautiful (and handsome!) kids! I know Katie especially enjoyed having her mom! Those tulips are absolutely beautiful and you know how much I love Aerie, too, but no sweatshirts in the spring time here in Louisiana! That would never do! If only it would stop raining, we may actually see Spring ourselves! Have a great weekend, Lisa!

      Y’all are having the same weather as Nashville. Everything here is turning brown again. We are having the driest Feb on record. Crazy!!! XOXO

    The tulips are pretty amazing, how nice to come home to! The sweatshirt looks amazing, I forget to check out Aerie.

    I saw a jar of tulips similar to that at Trader Joe’s and almost got it. I love that burlap bow you added to it and what a great idea to add it to your yard once they finish blooming. I am one that is not a huge almonds fan, but I do make myself eat them on low carb day. I need to try these pronto! And, you seriously get the best mom award… decorating that end table for her! So sweet! I hope to do little things like that when Autumn gets older.

      Oh I bet that’s a good place to look for them! These almonds are much better than regular. Give them a try. I’m sure you’ll be doing the same for your girl when the time comes. I just keep buying and figuring it’ll all go in her own house someday. XO

    How fabulous to have pears!! We have oranges and grapefruit and absolutely love it.
    Those mules are adorable!!

    • February 29, 2020 / 10:55 am

      I had to go back and read to figure out what you meant. LOL. Sadly, they are ornamental pear trees that don’t bear fruit. It would be awesome if they did. Happy weekend!!! XOXO

    I got one of those at Costco last year! Hopefully I can snag one this year too. I can’t wait to see mine bloom outside in a few months. Love the table decor you arranged on Katie’s side table!

    • February 29, 2020 / 10:55 am

      Thanks friend! Yep, I looked or another one of the tulip things this week and they were all gone. Womp-womp. I’ll check our other Costco today! XO

  11. February 29, 2020 / 5:50 am

    Those tulips are gorgeous, and I have bought them in the past. I didn’t get them this year. They weren’t out at Costco at the time I went. I bet they go fast. Love that pic of you and the kid’s (who aren’t kids anymore, ha ha!) Have a good weekend!

    • February 29, 2020 / 10:55 am

      Thanks Tanya!!! Yes, they were all gone when I went this week. Womp-womp. Have a great weekend!!! XO

    Those tulips are beautiful! They really put me in the mood for spring! We’ve been lucky here though–it’s been a pretty mild winter (though of course today it’s freezing!). That Aerie sweatshirt is SO cute! Pretty sure I just bought a sweater from them in that same pink color. Like mother, like daughter! 😀 Hope you’re having a great weekend! xoxo

    • March 5, 2020 / 5:15 pm

      Of course we would buy similar items. HA! I love tulips too. We’re going to put the bulbs out front in the fall. Hope you’ve had a great week. XO

    Oh, wish I had some of those tulips and also wish we had a Costco. Love the corner table and your touches to it. Know you enjoyed sharing time with your daughter. Wishing you a wonderful March!

    • March 5, 2020 / 5:15 pm

      Major bummer you don’t have a Costco. Thankfully we’ve had one everywhere we’ve lived. Yes, every time I go, I do a little more to her cute little “home”. Hope you’ve had a great week. XO

  14. March 2, 2020 / 4:20 am

    Love that you added a little homey touch to Katie’s apartment! I need to see if our Sams has those tulips…they are my absolute fave and those are beautiful.

    • March 5, 2020 / 5:15 pm

      I got another “jar” of them last weekend. They’re just about ready to bloom. That little girl costs me a fortune..LOL, but she’s worth it. XO
