Friday Favorites!

TGIF my friends!!! I’m so excited because we’re heading to see my fam in the big ol town of Bellville and celebrate my brother and his fiance with a wedding shower!  It definitely takes a LOT of effort to get us all in the same place at the same time. I’m the oldest sibling of three. I have a younger sister, Hallie and a younger brother, John. Besides being a mother to my own child, I have this natural tendency to “mother-hen” the two of them at times. Just comes with the territory I guess. Disclaimer: I’m very aware that I can be funny, bossy, loving, and annoying to them all at the same time. I guess that’s what older siblings are supposed to do! Love you H & J!!! I’m linking up as usual with the gals below. Let’s get to it, shall we!




If you missed my tablescape post on Monday, you can check it out here. I’m so happy with how it turned out and find myself feeling extra cozy this fall. Maybe it’s because we also have a sweet baby girl to take it all in with as well. IMG_8615


Last week I mentioned that I was on the hunt for a pair of black ripped jeans. Well, update, I didn’t find any. The gal at Nordie’s looked at me funny (shame on her) when I asked for them. But that’s alright. Because as I was perusing the R&B section, I found these bad boys. I have a pair of gray ones and they fit like.a.glove. So I knew immediately these would be amaze. Conclusion: If you want jeans that are so comfy and don’t leave you sucking it in all day, these are your kryptonite. The fabric is so soft and very giving. It’s not jean material, but also not “legging” like they’re named. It’s somewhere in between. And as a size reference, you’ll want to go UP one size.  I know, the nerve!! I wore them tucked into booties and the length is longer than it looks in the pic. The Amazon-like brazilian super model below must have had hers hemmed up a bit. Rude. 🙂

They get 5+ stars in my opinion.


And THIS is why I cannot try on clothes. A squealing baby is a no go for the other ladies in the fitting room trying catch some peace and quiet. Oops. And don’t even get me started on the dirty carpet she was crawling around on. I can’t even. Oh well, we came-we saw-we conquered…{And then I fought an hour of traffic and had an extra large glass of wine when I got home, HA.} Mission accomplished.


And while we’re talking fashion, I think I need this plaid tunic. It’s from that cute little Shop Impressions boutique and seems like a fall wardrobe necessity to me. Right?



I always get people asking where I got my iphone case from and so, here you go. It’s the INCIPIO CHROME IPHONE 6 CASE IN TEAL/GOLD. It’s held up really well after about 6 months now. I do drop it from time to time as does my sweet little angel daughter. But it’s stood the test of time. It’s no otterbox, but seriously who wants to carry about an Otterbox. Everyone told me, just WAIT until you have kids and you’ll have to use an Otterbox. Ummm, no. Not happening. If and when it does, I’ll hang my head between my tail and come publicly confess to you guys. But don’t hold your breath. Just sayin. Fun fact, Josh just ordered me the PINK case. You know you want it!

Hello, gorgeous!

Cheers to the freakin weekend!
