Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: I Can’t Stop Drinking About You by Bebe Rexha. I think this song is about a year old maybe? I don’t know but it is Friday and it fits!

Favorite Treat: I tried macaroons for the first time. I know, I know. I live under a rock, I am sorry! But seriously, these were delicious! I loved that they weren’t overly sweet. I went safe with vanilla and strawberry. What are your favorite flavors?


Favorite Moment: Getting to see my sweet, sweet friends to honor our mommy to be at her baby shower on Saturday! And also getting to see Courtney who flew back from Texas for the shower! I didn’t get to recap my weekend because it was quite busy. It included some delicious foods at the baby shower Saturday, followed by a little football, Chris’s car battery dying on Sunday, me missing another baby shower 🙁 and starting Friends from the very beginning Sunday evening while cooking a late dinner, Browned Butter Sage Sweet Potato Gnocchi.

Let me know if you want me to share the brown buttered sage gnocchi recipe next week! 

Favorite Beauty Product: I have been wearing Lancome’s Optic Sheen for years. YEARS!!! Mine ran out this week and it made me so sad. I ran by the Lancome counter at Belk but they were out. The lady said they may be doing away with this color because a lot of stores were out of it. Noooooo. I am going to snag one online before it’s gone, you should too!

Favorite Lusts: I really want to snag a couple of fall dresses. I don’t really have any and that is a crime, right? I really like this little number that is on sale right now!

And this one….


Oh and this one because fall doesn’t have to be boring….


Favorite Funnies:

Weeks or months even!:

After a good meal I be like…

Waiting for food at a good restaurant…

When you finish an amazing book and you don’t know what to do with your life…

I will be flying back from Orlando this morning. I don’t like staying in Florida too long, I would hate to catch the jorts. You know what I am talking about….

We are playing Ole Miss this weekend, so obviously football will be on deck for Saturday! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!

Linking up with Amanda.

    There is a somewhat famous pastry chef here in Australia that makes the most amazing macarons…my personal favorite flavors: salted butter caramel, pancakes & maple syrup, malted milkshake. They are seriously like melt-in-your-mouth amazing!!! All of those dresses are pretty amazing too.

    i haven’t even had a macaroon to date! i hear they’re very good though…sort of like a chewy cookie?

  • Reply Katie MacDonald September 18, 2015 at 7:43 am

    ah so much good looking food. My favorite macaroons are chocolate salted caramel. Sorry about the car troubles, they always stress me out so much…and yes to the taking photos of everything. I take about 50 photos a day of the baby and think back to my childhood photo album,s where we had like 5 photos of us for each season.

    You always make me smile on Friday morning girl! I hope you’re having a wonderful trip! You know what, I’ve never had macaroons either, can you believe it? Really want to try them, I wonder if I can make them? Oh my gosh, look at that shower food spread! Well, it actually looks like the food spreads I do when I give showers and parties, Ha ha ha! I go way overboard, but then we have leftovers which is definitely a good thing and I love sending food home with people, ha ha. I’m a good sharer, LOL. I can totally see you and all the cute dresses, you’re so stinking cute and toned girl you need to do a fashion post!! Love and hugs, safe travels home and I hope it’s a glorious weekend!

    Hey now, watch it with the jorts comments! 😉 Love those dresses you picked out, so cute!! I want to buy all the fall clothes right now, especially this really cute plaid flannel shirt and booties I saw at Target! That baby shower looks like fun!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer September 18, 2015 at 8:30 am

    Omg at the Jorts comment! I laughed out loud! Please share the gnocchi recipe! That’s one of my favorite dishes. I am so pumped for the game Saturday! Have a safe flight!

  • Reply Tracy September 18, 2015 at 8:37 am

    I’ve never tried macaroons! I live under an uncultured rock, I guess. I’ve never really had an opportunity to try them and I feel like when/if I do, I need to make sure to try GOOD ones, you know, so I don’t get a subpar macaroon and then think that’s what all macaroons taste like. Florida IS a weird place but I hope you had a good time on your trip!

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization Actually September 18, 2015 at 9:43 am

    Your gnocchi looks delicious! Cracking up at the “life isn’t a fairytale” and “the best things in life.” Yes, yes, yes. Question: does “jorts” refer to all jean shorts, or just raggedy, terrible ones?

  • Reply Marie September 18, 2015 at 9:44 am

    I love macaroons!! Vanilla and Salted Caramel are my favorites. Now you have me craving them. Oh they are so good. Safe travels home today. Have a great weekend.

  • Reply Darcy September 18, 2015 at 10:11 am

    I love macaroons! I just had them for the first time last year and have MAYBE had them like 2 times since.. I like to save them for special occasions! I don’t know about flavors… but the vanilla one is always a favorite! I like to try that and then a fun one each time!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 18, 2015 at 10:13 am

    LOL at the Beast meme.. that’s like me with fried food at happy hour on Fridays! And that striped dress may end up coming home to me! And yay for macaroons! I tried a pistachio one when I was in Boston in July and it was amazing!

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

    I’ve never tried a macaroon either, I wouldn’t even know where to get one!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis September 18, 2015 at 11:03 am

    I’ve never tried macrons myself! They look really good though as does your gnocchi recipe. Did you make it from scratch? I would love to read the recipe. Your friend’s baby shower looks like fun with lots of good eats.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo September 18, 2015 at 11:28 am

    I’ve never had a macaroon so you’re not alone on that one. Your funnies we’re seriously on point this week, especially the losing your shoe and midnight (because I may have lost a shoe or two in my day drunk) and the best things in life one. I mean really, why do all the best things do that to you. Also, jorts. Get the hell outta there ASAP!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo September 18, 2015 at 11:51 am

    That Belle gif was totally me after my last book – didn’t want it to end.

  • Reply Dani September 18, 2015 at 1:38 pm

    Hahaha, that tequila e-card is one of my favorites of all time. Sorry to hear about your eyeshadow- I hate it when they discontinue my fave products! I actually found my favorite discontinued MAC blush on Ebay and bought a few of them! And HELL NO to jorts- I broke up with a guy for wearing them! (Well that, and he was a loser, but still.)

  • Reply kristen September 18, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    never heard that song but holy moly that gnocchi looks amazing! and all those dresses, so cute!

  • Reply Amanda September 18, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    The best macarons I’ve ever had were in Traverse City. S’mores, Red Velvet, and Peanut Butter and Jelly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Reply Mattie September 18, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    Macarons are sooo good. I had a coffee praline or coffee something or other one recently that was delicious! I also had salted caramel before which was great. That gnocchi sounds heavenly.

  • Reply Kerry September 18, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    Macroons are so good, not what they appear either. The blue dress is pretty, Fall doesn’t have to mean dark colors!!

  • Reply Evelina September 20, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    I can’t believe you just tried macaroons! They are all so delicious that I can’t ever pick a favourite flavour. I once had a rose flavour and it was so different and yummy! I want to learn how to make them!

  • Reply Duckie September 21, 2015 at 9:03 am

    I’m picky about my macarons. They have to be not so sweet and not so chewy. My faves are vanilla bean, fruity pebbles, and probably strawberry. And those dresses are sooooo cute! I might have to get the last two for myself now!
