Friday Favorites

I swear Tuesday felt like it should have been Thursday this week, so needless to say it seemed long! I am glad Friday is here! I have a lunch date with Laura today and we are going to watch the Alabama vs LSU game tomorrow and get some stuff done around the house and nursery so it should be a productive weekend. The high today is supposedly “only” 77, so maybe some cooler air is in the cards for us? Please!!!! I am so ready for some fall weather! What do you have on deck for the weekend?

Favorite Moments:

–Having lunch with a few sweet friends yesterday at Hickory Tavern. It had been since May since I had seen one of them and that is far too long! A delicious cheese steak sandwich never hurt anyone either.


–All of the holiday sales catalogs have been rolling in this week!!! I absolutely love looking through them and receiving all their coupons! Does anyone else remember getting the toy ones in the mail when they were little and circling everything they wanted?


–Hanging out with this guy, as always. The bottom right picture was from last night. Mac was sitting on me but staring at Chris on the couch. I was like, Mac has been staring at you for like five minutes now. A few minutes later Chris goes, he really is staring at me! And the moment Chris said that Mac jumped ship over to him. He was waiting for an invite I think. The little dude is due for a grooming. I have been waiting to get it as close to before baby comes as possible so his nails are freshly clipped!


Favorite Recipe: I found this giant meatball recipe yesterday. It would meat the low carb requirements for Chris and give me some much needed protein so I say it needs to happen soon!

This isn't your regular meatball, it's HUGE, baked in the oven similar to how you would make a meatloaf, then topped with marinara and melted cheese – I'm OBSESSED!:


Favorite Lust: The Sephora VIB sale is next week!!! Here are a few things I have my eye on. Tell me what you have on your list!!!


-Heard so many great things about Kat Von D and especially the tattoo liner.

-I am almost out of my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation so now is the perfect time to stock up on essentials like this!!! Hands down my favorite foundation ever. I have tried so many and came back to this one. It has the best coverage and colors that actually match my skin.

–Somehow I have made it this long without any real highlighters and I really want to try some. I think this Becca Glow kit would be a perfect place to start for the price!

–I can’t remember if I loved Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet or Miss Dior Blooming but I know one of these two smells so amazing and I really want a bottle!

Favorite Links:

–So let me get this straight….it is ok to expect woman to experience all the awful side effects of birth control but some men are pulling out of the trial because of the things we have been complaining about for years and years?!?!

–Remember Soul Asylum? I loved Run Away Train and I found this article pretty interesting about the lost children of their music video.

Favorite Funnies:

I think we all know I am Elf in this…




Cuz frankly i really don't flippin care what you are doing! So stop calling me and acting like we are friends. Since we both know you just feel the need to "keep tabs" on what I'm up to so you can compete!:




I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I am off to Starbucks for my first Caramel Brulee Latte of the season. Easily one of my favorite season drinks besides the butterscotch!

Linking up with Amanda.

    LOL at the men complaining – what a bunch of sissies. I’m so making that meatball, and then I’m going to put it on bread to make it super healthy πŸ™‚ And DAMN straight about eating cake whenever the eff I want. YOU CAN”T STOP ME.

    Yess, this entire week I kept thinking, what day is it? Because it continually felt like it was later in the week, buut FINALLY Friday πŸ™‚ Blooming Bouquet is one of my favorite scents, though I don’t think I’ve ever smelled the other one. I love almost all things floral– and the Becca kit looks awesome- I’ve been obsessed with the two highlights I got from a gift set back in the spring. I’ve been eyeing that meatball recipe for the past couple of days too- yum!

    Your funnies this week are on point. I’m the Elf version when it comes to Christmas. Give me all the holiday goodness!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer November 4, 2016 at 9:39 am

    That foundation is on my wishlist for the Sephora sale! You’ve talked so highly of it that I have to give it a try. I have died over the birth control thing. For years I was on that bc that was finally recalled… that entire time, my blood pressure was consistently HIGH. My normal is 110/70. So I’m tired of them whining! That funny about working to afford paper towels and detergent is probably the truest thing I’ve ever seen. Hope you have a great weekend!

    The Kat Von D liner is amazing; that was my go-to until I found a different one (Marc Jacobs).

    I laughed about the men complaining about the side effects; like, DEAL WITH IT YOU, PANSIES.

    Your funnies are the best. I could definitely go for wine and a million dollars…and that meatball…

  • Reply Marie November 4, 2016 at 10:35 am

    Haha you have the best funnies. I use the Kat Von D Concealer and liquid lipstick and love it. I haven’t tired the eyeliner but I think I should. Will add that to my ever growing list. Love Sephora.

    I pinned that giant meatball recipe this week! It looks so delish!

  • Reply Stephanie November 4, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Man now I really want some chocolate cake. I’ve missed way too many opportunities to have that for breakfast, I should remedy that.
    I definitely used to go ham on those catalogs, particularly the American Girl one!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo November 4, 2016 at 11:30 am

    Its supposed to be in the 60’s here today & tomorrow – & back in the 70’s the rest of the week. CRAZYYYYYY
    I so laughed at the “unfollowed you in real life” … yep, know a few people that can apply to

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista November 4, 2016 at 11:59 am

    YES to cake for breakfast and Friday coffee! I couldn’t be more excited for all the fun catalogs arriving. Happy Friday gurlie <3

  • Reply Sierra November 4, 2016 at 12:04 pm

    Happy Friday! I loved seeing the catalogs too and it was fun to have A circle all the things he’s hoping for and also what we would like to get his little brother. We’ve also had to refer back to these wonderful catalogs when he starts acting up or a tantrum is brewing (not the best, I know, but sometimes whatever works). Enjoy your lunch date and have a fabulous weekend! Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Audrey November 4, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    ABSOLUTELY YES TO THE CARAMEL BRULEE!! Honestly, 10xs better than the PSL! It’s my fav.

    I’m so ready for the Christmas season. I’m all prepped to hit up HomeGoods and Target and World Market this weekend to snag the leftover-fall decor sales and start on my Xmas shopping!!

    Our dogs are always looking for the invite, too. Fishing for love, really. Haha. Enzo sleeps with us every night (Ly has the option, but she usually goes somewhere else) but sometimes he still waits on the floor at the foot of the bed for us to invite him up. Even though he knows he’s allowed up there. Haha!

  • Reply Laura November 4, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    I just moved, so my holiday catalogs got lost along the way, and I’m SO JEALOUS!! I might just have to head to the store and pick them up in person :). Also, I had the same thoughts on the male birth control study!! So typical haha.

  • Reply Emelia November 4, 2016 at 7:22 pm

    The detergent and paper towels haaaaa so true! I think I need to go back to EstΓ©e Lauder. I’ve tried MAC and now using Make Up Forever and none do it like the doublewear. Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Kaitlyn November 5, 2016 at 9:29 am

    I didn’t know seahora carries Double Wear?? Have they always carried it? I always get mind from the ester counter at Belk. Kat Von D is my fav! Her make-up is awesome.

  • Reply Duckie November 6, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    That meatball though! YUMMMMM!! And I get so jealous of all the Sephora stuff because they don’t even ship to Guam! I have to wait for a trip to the states to stock up on all the good stuff.

  • Reply ellesees.net November 7, 2016 at 6:51 am

    I remember as a kid the Sears Wishbook! I was just talking to my mom and sis about that the other day!! Love a good meal with friends.

  • Reply texerinsydney November 7, 2016 at 8:00 pm

    I totally remember circling pictures of toys that I wanted in the Christmas catalogues.
    Now, off I go to read that article about the lost children of Runaway Train.
