Friday Favorites

Who else is excited that the Sephora VIB sale starts today?!?! Just in time because I am literally scraping the bottom of my foundation this morning!!! Somehow we are creeping up on the middle of November already and you can tell because all the Black Friday ads are starting to leak and stores are having early Black Friday preview sales. Did you catch the one Target did with Cartwheel yesterday? There were a few things I saw on it but I never made my way over there. Bummer, but I am sure there will be others!

This weekend Alabama plays Mississippi state at 11am. Early game! Does anyone else hate Mississippi State games because of the annoying cow bells? Those things hurt my head!!! Other than that, we have a few things to get done around the house and some anniversary celebrating to do.

Favorite Moments:

–Monday, Laura and I finally had our burger date at Jack Brown’s. It was extra delicious and enjoyed since it was on a Monday. I ordered my favorite, the Danny Laruso, that has cream cheese and pepper jelly on it with a side of sweet potato fries and their crack sauce. Annnnnd of course we had to get fried oreos for dessert because Mondays!



–Got my first Peppermint Mocha of the season on my way to the office yesterday and got a little more in the holiday spirit with the red cup and one of my fall/winter purses. Do you have certain purses you carry during certain seasons?


–This guy! The top left picture is him doing his daily “PC” (perimeter check) around the yard. And the other ones? Such a ham, right?


Favorite Delivery: I received the Cozy Voxbox in the mail from Influenster. There were a few products in the box I was already familiar with, but always happy to receive!! And a few new to me things.


Simple Wipes – Love these! My favorite of the make-up wipes! I actually had just finished a package and bought a new one, so I am saving these for my hospital stay.

Daisy Sour Cream – A staple on taco night, am I right? What I really loved about this specific one is the squeeze tube it comes in. MAJOR game changer for tacos, nachos, and anything you are trying to dress up with some! The only down side is they gave me a free coupon for this and the coupon didn’t work so I was pretty disappointed that I didn’t get mine free and I am still praising the tube packaging so you know it is good.

Country Crock – Another household staple. What more can you say about it?

Pilot Frixon Clicker Pens – Who doesn’t want fun new pens?!?! Am I the only one who gets excited about office supplies? I just loved the way these wrote and that they have the comfort grip on them. They are erasable and they say they are retractable but I can’t figure out how to retract them? Mine might be broken in that department but they still write great!

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color in Keep Up The Flame – While this color isn’t something that I would normally grab for myself, I am more of a nude, pink or berry girl….the staying power on this one is pretty good! It has a double-sided two step tube to lock in the color.

Ebates – I have never used Ebates in the past. Mainly because I used to not do a ton of shopping online other than Amazon. Now that I have a baby coming, I see my love for stores changing at least a little and am signing up!

Favorite Recipe: Since our anniversary was on a Thursday, we decided to wait and celebrate this weekend. It has been a tradition for me to make homemade lasagna every year so I might be pulling this recipe back out! Yum!!!

Favorite Lusts: After high praise from Katie and Mattie, I put these leggings at the top of my Christmas list. According to them, the thick waste band makes them super comfortable, they stay up and you can see right through them. And the price isn’t too terrible either. Everything I ask for in a legging!

Favorite Links:

–I love looking at gift lists to get some ideas not only for gifts, but find cool products I never knew existed. This Real Simple Tech Guide has some great ideas on it!

Favorite Funnies:


I love that when I’m with you, I don’t have to pretend I’m a nice person. That shit’s exhausting. | Snarkecards:


My life:

Yep! This happens EVERYTIME it rains, snows, the wind blows, it's too cold, it's…:

.Here's to all the people that remain unharmed coffee and humor:



I want to thank all the Veterans out there for their service. I hate that there are people out there burning the very flag that they fought so hard to protect. Let’s have some respect for our country and not burn our flag!!! That solves nothing. Instead, go put some good out into the world and thank a Vet. 

Linking up with Amanda. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    I’ve seen so many posts about Sephora’s sale… I’m getting the shove to go check it out.
    I’m making it a goal to get all 13 Starbucks cups this holiday season 😉 haha

    The red cups are so festive- I love it! It looks like you had an amazing lunch with your friend– that burger and fries look delicious! I placed my Sephora order this morning bright and early so I stopped tempting myself to add more things to my cart, haha. Those leggings are definitely on my radar too. I hope you guys have so much fun celebrating your anniversary this weekend!

    I agree about Mississippi State! Hate playing them for that reason! Roll Tide! About to make my Sephora purchases and I’m so excited! The Simple wipes are my favorites, too. They’re so gentle on my eyes. I need to check out those leggings! I bought the Zella ones during the NSale and honestly they’re tight on my butt. Anyway. Have a great weekend!

    hahaha Hawkeye does perimeter check too! I thought it was just my crazy ass dog. And she does it with John around the house at night – they go into empty rooms, check doors and windows, it’s the funniest thing ever. Little fluff nugget thinks she’s a guard dog.
    The dog at the window is my favorite one, all my dogs ever have done that – bad weather, NOPE. Pooping inside today!

    I love pens. I have two cups of them on my desk and more in a drawer. I can’t get rid of them because the minute I do, I feel like a favorite will disappear or run out of ink! Ebates is AMAZING… I use it all the time, and it’s awesome for stores like Best Buy or Kohl’s when you know what you want and you can buy online and pick up in store and STILL get Ebates money! It’s also really good for hotels!

    Great favorites girl! Yay, I’m so glad you finally get your lunch date with Laura and it looked delicious! Too funny, I have the Daisy sour cream tubes on my grocery list today and I even have a coupon! I love those leggings, I have leggings on today and they’re all saggy and yucky, I need to order those too or better yet put them on my Christmas list, ha ha! Go Alabama and put those cowbells shame!

    Happy Friday! Ahh your food gets me every time, that burger and fries looks amazing. I occassionaly switch my bags out seasonally. Mac funnies are the best funnies…he’s such a character! Those leggins sound like a good find. The hardest part is finding a pair that stay up. Have a great weekend!! Beautifully Candid

    I need a red cup in my life, ASAP! That burger sounds so amazing. Can’t go wrong with cream cheese and pepper jelly. I hope you get the leggings and that you love them as much as we do! Somehow one of my dogs jumped over a 6-foot fence this morning and into the neighbor’s yard. I didn’t see it happen, but now I feel like we need to build up the fences for her perimeter checks! Hahaha. Luckily no one lives in that house at the moment so I could just go over there and didn’t have to explain the situation to anyone. Haha.

    Yes to the burning the flag! I almost got a peppermint mocha the other day but I’m trying to get the salted caramel as long as I possibly can. Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Audrey November 11, 2016 at 10:58 am

    I’ve never had deep fried oreos…
    Our dogs do a PC&P: perimeter check & poop. Hahaha. Every dang day.
    The meme about pretending to be a nice person while with your bff is so accurate. I was talking about someone to my bff and totally over-analyzing this person, then I ended it with, “…maybe I’ve just being an asshole.” She goes, “Yeah, I think that’s probably it.” Hahahahaha.

    That burger….omg I can’t stop looking. LOL

  • Reply Dani November 11, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    Love the tech gift guide! I already have an iPhone compatible photo printer on my list because my mom is always complaining that I never have “real” pictures haha! The retro game controller is so fun! You got a lot of fun things in your voxbox but seriously- GET ON EBATES! I’ve made soo much cashback from them, especially during the holiday season (hello, Cyber Monday) or when booking vacations/getaways, along with everyday purchases. Hope you have a great anniversary weekend!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis November 11, 2016 at 7:23 pm

    The cozy box sounds so perfect for this time of year but bummer that the Daisy sour cream coupon didn’t work…wtf? LOL I truly believe in Ebates since I do a ton of online shopping and it applies to pretty much any major online store/website I joined in 2012 and so far I’ve received about $450 in cash back from them. It’s worth it but remembering to use it is always a challenge for me! Since it even applies to flights and travel, I could have made over $1000 but I simply forgot to connect the dots before purchasing.

    Those leggings look comfy! I pulled mine out of storage this week and even wore a long sleeve shirt today, so sad! A peppermint mocha sounds delicious. Makes it feel like Christmas. I definitely have seasonal purses. Speaking of Christmas, I have friends who have started putting up their Christmas trees this week. Feels like everyone’s ready to just skip Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas this year, lol.

    I’ve been so busy gearing up for my vacation and so busy at work that I haven’t had a chance to really get my shit together and get the stuff on my list from Sephora. I’m going to have to squeeze it in tomorrow, or I’ll miss it. I know I’ll need to actually purchase my BB in store because I don’t have enough to last me through next week, but I think for everything else I can just wait for it to ship to me.

    Sweet potato fries are sooooo good! And I totally carry purses by season. I have my gold quilted Kate Spade out right now :)Enjoy your weekend@!
