Friday Favorites

Hey there, Friday Favorites! The weather is supposed to finally be cooler today! 70’s during the day and 40’s this evening! I cant wait to feel something less than 70 degrees! It is going to be amazing! This weekend we have Alabama vs Texas A&M and some baby shopping to get done. I also have some other things I need to work on, plus the never ending purging and organizing that I feel I must do! You would think I would run out of things to toss or organize, but nope! What do you have on the agenda?

Favorite Moments:

–Hearing baby girl’s heart beat on Tuesday at my appointment. Starting November 1st, I will be going every week to get checked!!! We are in the final stretch!

–Snacking on all the leftovers from my shower. I sort of wish my SIL wouldn’t have left me with all these cupcakes because I have been having one for breakfast basically every morning. And one after dinner every night. And all of the chips and smiley cookies for lunch! Whole 30 is going to be so rough in January. Woof.

–This guy. He is such a little ham.


Favorite Recipe: I made sweet potato chip nachos when I was on Whole30 and loved them. I found this Sweet Potato Irish Nacho recipe from Skinnytaste and cant wait to try it!

A healthier twist on an Irish pub favorite – dangerously good!!:

Favorite Purchase: I am slowly starting to get my ducks in a row for when baby comes. I want to get a robe and pajamas for my hospital stay, get my hospital bag packed, etc. One of the things I know I will be needing while there and the weeks at home after is dry shampoo!!! I used to be a huge fan of Batiste until I tried Living Proof. There is nothing that compares to the amazing job that Living Proof does! Plus, I feel better using it with less chemicals and literally no white powdery residue left behind. This stuff is a miracle and I bought a full size can after having the travel size for a few months. Worth the extra money, I promise!!


I have also been wanting to try Fresh Sugar Lip stuff forever and ever and ever. I couldn’t decide on a color to get, so I picked up the three pack mini that they have for Christmas. This has Honey, Tulip and Berry in it. I absolutely love all three colors, but the jury is still out for me on if it was worth the money. The color lasts awhile and it feels amazing when I first put it on….but then about two hours later my lips are super dry. As in dryer than before I put anything on. Everyone acts like this stuff is some kind of unicorn dust sent from heaven. Tell me if I am missing something.

Favorite Lust:

I keep checking out this necklace from Nordstrom to see if it is on sell because how perfect would it be for every outfit???

Also, these earrings are gorgeous. My mom bought me pearl earrings and a necklace several years ago. I still have the necklace, but one of the earrings broke and I have really been wanting to replace them. Such a classic.

Favorite Links:

–Putting these 12 health bargain foods on my list for the next time I am at Trader Joes.

–I have been wanting to get a highlighter to try out. Khloe Kardashian swears by this $6 one. That is totally in my budget!

Favorite Funnies:

Some days I really miss DDP!!!

So true!! Gotta be cherry though 🍒:


probably true:

yeeeeeeeeeeees! Wherever you're going you have to walk, wtf needs close? Crazy, lazy, brain dead peeps!:

    Omg! ahahaha, I AM being nice, have I stabbed you yet?!?! HAHAHA, almost out of my chair. Oh man, that was good. Hooray for more purging this weekend – get it girl. I can’t wait to see this little girl’s nursery start to really come together.

    Did you get that Belif moisturizer? I just finished my bottle of it last night! Trying the IT Cosmetics one now. So I hadn’t seen that article about Khloe, but I randomly ordered several Makeup Revolution products from Ulta this week and LOVE them all! Definitely a brand to check out! Happy weekend!

    I cannot parallel park so I just find somewhere else even if it is in BFE, lol. Sweet potato anything and I’m sold. Yay, you got some Fresh Sugar lip stuff, those tints sound pretty. MAC I heart you buddy!!! Happy weekend sweet lady!!

    I can’t imagine how wonderful it is to hear your baby’s heartbeat– so exciting you’re getting so close to her due date 🙂 I really like the Living Proof dry shampoo too– I still like Batiste, but the scent is always so strong, and you make a really good point about the ingredients! I’ve only tried one Fresh lip product and I like it, but it’s not like my favorite thing ever, haha. I do want to try out another one because I’m not crazy about the color of the one I have. Love the Belif moisturizer!

    LOl the parallel park one. I was awful at it for a while until i got this car. it also helps when i have a rear view camera LOL

    Happy Friday! Hooray for cooler temps! Enjoy girl. Cupcakes haunting me every day would definitely result in eating multiples of them. Of course always loving pics of Mac! So with the extra dry lips…it could be because you’re pregnant. With both of my pregnancies my lips were always extremely dry (even though I drank tons of water) and certain lip colors seemed to effect me even more. They were still pretty bad up until when I stopped breastfeeding. Just a thought, or it could just be the lip color. I’m convinced some of these companies put ingredients in things to keep you continually applying them. Hope you have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

    I love those fresh lip balms. Honey is my favorite. I’m always reapplying as I like my lips to be shiny. I probably reapply every hour, haha. $6 for a highlighter! I so need to check that out. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

    I legit just had a bit size snickers so I snorted at that one.
    I love that long necklace. I am all about those long ones – they are so beautiful & add just the amount of ‘dress’ to an casual outfit.

    Irish Nachos? yum! i love Batiste but mine doesn’t leave a white residue? it does leave a brown residue hahaha. i have heard amazing things about living proof and want to try it, but i’ll use up all my batiste first.
    i used to be a boss with parallel parking because that’s all you can do at home, but i never do it here in KY so i forgot how! when i did my driver’s test, i hit the curb. HAHA. oops.

    I use LP dry shampoo like pretty much every day now! It’s a God send! Happy weekend!!

    I’m co-hosting a baby shower for a friend this weekend and I have a feeling that I’m going to have a ton of leftovers to eat all week too! It’s not going to be good for trying to be good! Good luck with the game this weekend! We’ll be watching it from home and hoping that we don’t choke too much!

  • Reply Jenna October 21, 2016 at 6:57 pm

    Oh, I didn’t know that fresh set existed. I need to get that. I already got the Too Faced holiday set and the Bite Beauty mini lipstick set, and I will probably grab a Bite Beauty lip duo, too. The Too Faced set might go back. I’m not thrilled with the quality of the mattes, and I could get a chocolate bar palette instead, which I know is good quality.

    That pic about parallel parking is spot on. I think I have parallel parked like twice in my life. If that. Usually I just park far away and walk, ha!

    And you are so right – that necklace is great! It would go with everything!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm October 22, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    Ahaha! That Dr. Pepper monkey is perfect. What a face!

    So glad you got to hear the baby’s heart! Always such a lovely sound. Weekly appointments… ahh! That means it is almost baby time!

    Happy weekend!

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World October 24, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    Haha I totally got out of my car this weekend in the street & made my friend switch spots with me so she could parallel park my car. Yay for hearing baby girl’s heartbeat!
