Friday Favorites

Hey there, Friday!!! I am excited for some nursery painting and football this weekend! There are going to be a lot of good games on Saturday and Chris is bringing two extra TV’s in to our living room so we can catch them all. SEC is hardcore you guys. I suppose that is as long as he still isn’t inline for his iPhone 7. Time will tell. #techlife

Favorite Song: I am digging this new Calvin Harris song, My Way.

Favorite Moments:

–Last night I met up with a friend for an Edolyn’s Pie tasting for a new local company in Birmingham. Let’s be honest, I have never met a pie I didn’t like. These were no exception! I got to try the Lemon Chess, Pecan and Sweet Potato. I loved all three of them for different reasons, though I suppose the pecan was my favorite since I came home with it. Maybe I ate that pecan pie for breakfast this morning, what’s it to you?




Those of my friends in New Jersey, I believe you can get these pies as well. Last night we got to hear the story of how the company started as a southern soul food restaurant in Jersey in the 80’s and while the restaurant didn’t thrive, people kept coming just for the pies so they started selling pies out of their basement and now they have a huge commercial kitchen up there with the same recipe. The daughter of the owners came to Birmingham to spread the pie love here.

–For Treat Yo’Self Tuesday I switched up my Starbucks run with a Nordstrom Rack  browsing and an Oreo Blizzard from Dairy Queen. No regrets! Look at this cute little dress I scored on clearance while I was there. Someone is going to be styling come spring!!!


Favorite Mac Scenes: This little guy knows we are getting closer to some changes around here. Normally he comes and lies on me at night while we are watching TV, but lately he has been laying with Chris’s pillow. Like he knows that he needs to make sure they are on good terms because I am going to be pre-occupied with baby soon. He has also been bopping his little nose in to my tummy a lot like he wants to say hi. The other day I asked him where she was and he went running to her room, so at least he knows where she will be staying.


Favorite Recipe: This Sesame Bourbon Chicken recipe looks so good!

Slow Cooker Sesame Bourbon Chicken:


Favorite Lust: You guys!!! YOU GUYS!!!! Michael Kors has come out with a smartwatch!!! I know, I am totally excited too! Look at this beauty. LOOK AT IT! I am so glad I never got the Apple Watch because I want this!!! You can change it’s face to different colors and looks and the bands are swap-able. Clearly a need, right?

Favorite Links:

10 pieces you should have in your closet by the time you are 35. Looks like I have lots of shopping to do after baby.

Out of office messages you wish you could leave.

    LOL at the idiot sandwich, I love that one. Man, now I really want pie. Breakfast pie? Is that a thing?

  • Reply Laura September 16, 2016 at 9:28 am

    Omg that watch!!! I definitely know what’s going on my Christmas list!! Eatin pie for breakfast is totally ok– I mean it’s just like eating a doughnut or pastry, so #fuckitfriday. And yes with the change!! I normally just toss that shit in my purse and deal with it later!!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer September 16, 2016 at 9:43 am

    Everyone calls me Monica, so I utilize that las gif a lot. And it’s true. I might kill someone tonight! That pie looks amazing. I can’t turn down a good southern pie! Love baby girl’s dress! She will be stylish for sure. Have a blast watching football this weekend – we’ll be doing the same thing!

  • Reply Sierra September 16, 2016 at 9:58 am

    Happy Friday! Those pies look so tasty! I’m going to look and see where they are located over here. I’m not exactly a pie pro so bringing one of these to a holiday dinner would be worth it! Aww, baby girl is going to look so cute! Great find. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy all of the football fun! Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Rebecca Jo September 16, 2016 at 10:31 am

    That watch. I used to hate rosegold back in the day but LOVE it now.
    Pie is my downfall. Donuts or cake for some – pie for me. I would have gobbled up ALL those small sample pieces.
    I am that exactly way about having to pay for shipping. Its ridiculous anyone should pay for shipping in todays world.

  • Reply kristen September 16, 2016 at 10:46 am

    hahahahaha an idiot sandwich
    how cute is that little dress! and omg piiiiiiiiiiieeee. yum. i am not as friendly with pie as you, certain pie yes, some pies no.
    lol @ mac bopping his little nose in to your tummy!! so cute. you definitely need that watch. get on it!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 16, 2016 at 10:51 am

    Oh my goodness! Your little princess is going to look adorable in that dress! And that MK smartwatch is the most lustworthy item I’ve seen in forever, we all need that prettiness! And you know how I feel about people in cubicles talking on speaker… a whole new level of rudeness – ugh! Happy Friday gurlie <3

  • Reply Audrey September 16, 2016 at 11:21 am

    All those memes and gifs. Seriously. I run out of my dark basement ALL THE TIME. And I constantly have a social hangover, even though I work alone in an office. Lol.
    That chicken recipe looks so good! Have a great weekend with all your TVs!

    HAHAHAHA the shopping cart one. FOR REAL. i had to buy a few things and when I saw the $4.00 shipping fee, I got mad…even though what was in my cart was like, $150. LOL

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World September 16, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    That pie! Pecan is my favorite of all time.

  • Reply Jess September 16, 2016 at 1:17 pm

    Good luck painting the nursery! What color are you going with? I am a huge fan of pecan pie, and all pies in general. I always find it hard to pick a favorite! Maybe it’s a seasonal thing, like in the summer I want strawberry, but pecan is perfect for fall. Cute little dress!! I have no idea what sizes to buy right now, but dresses are going to be so much fun in the springtime. Mac is so sweet. Haha that change thing is too funny. There’s no way to prepare, either, except have your wallet open.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native September 16, 2016 at 2:21 pm

    That $5.99 shipping and panic attack about putting my card (or change…but 99.9% of the time it’s my card) back into my wallet are so real. Also I just read another post about how a dog was reacting to pregnancy and it makes me want to get pregnant just to see what my dogs do (JK, that’s a horrible reason to get pregnant…but I’m curious when the time comes)!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine September 16, 2016 at 3:34 pm

    I think Chris should get you that watch as a mom of my baby gift! Great idea, right? Oh that bourbon chicken looks delicious. The color of baby girl’s dress is so beautiful and you better believe she’s going to be stylin’ in the spring and every season to come! Happy Weekend, enjoy the gridiron and painting the sweet nursery!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm September 16, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    Oh my goshhhh…. Mac. Every time I see his photos, he makes me smile. Sounds like he’s going to be a great big brother! 😉

    Pecan pie is my weakness. I totally would have had it for breakfast too. I only make it for Thanksgiving and that’s it.

  • Reply Robin September 17, 2016 at 8:59 am

    Aaaw, cute how Mac knows where the baby’s room is. I laughed out loud at that basement image; I always hurry out if I happen to be in a basement or cellar. Nothing wrong with pie for breakfast! Donuts are socially accepted and they are basically round cakes with holes.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis September 17, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    I love that quote from Helen Keller…I have a painting of it up in our bathroom. The MK Smart watch sounds amazing!! This is the first time I hearing about but I need to check it out…it looks gorgeous!

  • Reply Amy Getz September 17, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    I always look forward to the Friday funnies – so good! Girl – you are hardcore SEC – bring it on! And I’ve never met a pie I didn’t like either . . . except maybe mincemeat! And pie for breakfast sounds like a smart choice! I am fangirling over that watch – I keep debating the Apple Watch but then perusing the MK watches online – love some rose gold too! And voila – tag team them both!

  • Reply Jenna September 18, 2016 at 5:47 pm

    Dogs just know. They just do. They’re psychic.

  • Reply Amanda September 18, 2016 at 5:50 pm

    I’ve been loving the new Calvin Harris song, too!
    A Blizzard sounds AMAZING right now!

    I am a huge apple pie fan, so I am excited for fall baking….done by someone else, bc I am awful at it!!

  • Reply mandie September 19, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Oh…my…gosh! That lil pink dress is SO dang cute! Almost makes me want to have a baby girl just to dress her in that…almost. Ha!

    & those pie – yum!

  • Reply texerinsydney September 19, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    I read somewhere that Michael Kors recently became a billionaire. Whatever marketing genius told him to stop focusing only on haute couture and start a label that is affordable for real people should get a bonus!

    That dress is all kinds of adorable.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots September 21, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    Omg that little dress is the cutest! Tbh, I may or may not have bought a fox girl outfit at Gymboree like 2 years ago even though we aren’t planning to have a baby for like 4-5 years bc of how cute it was!
