Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Fire In My Bones by Fleurie – So awesome and chill. Roll down those windows and feel the sun on your skin with this one.

Favorite Moments:

–Tracy sent me a video of my kindergarten nephew counting by fives from 5 to 100. He did perfectly and all I could think the whole time was man, that kid sure does sound country with his fives!!! Then when he got to 100, he smiled real big and goes “BAM!!!!!!!!!” I must have replayed that about 10 times to hear him say BAM! Yup, he’s my nephew. There is no doubt!!!

Laura and I had an impromptu lunch on Wednesday to check out Homewood’s latest addition, Holler and Dash! It was delicious!!! I ordered the Kickback Chicken which was fried chicken on a biscuit with goat cheese, pepper jelly and green onions. Laura and I split an order of beignets because BEIGNETS! They came with coffee syrup which was scrumptious!!! They also offer craft sodas that they make right there in front of you. I ordered the Strawberry Lemongrass and it was amazing!!!!!!! We will be back for sure! We will have a full review up on Besties do Bham soon. And if you want to follow that account on Instagram to see all of the food porn, then here it is! In the meantime here is my meal.





Faavorite Recipe: I made this sweet potato shepherds pie Wednesday night and it was delicious!!! I didn’t  have tomato paste on hand so I squirted ketchup in it instead. And I hate cauliflower so we completely omitted that. Also, my cinnamon container was jammed and I shook hard and way too much came out…and this still turned out amazing!!!

Favorite Lust:

These Elani Gladiator Sandals from Target!!! Cognac and black would be perfect, thanks! This week their shoes are buy one get one 50% off so stock up!!! I tried these on last week and they were super comfy. The back ankle thing didn’t bother me at all, unlike most of this style that I try on. They are a total need, right????


And basically everything on my spring wish list from Tuesday!!!

Favorite Links:

–Check out the “perfect house” that compiles the most popular rooms on Pinterest. Yup, I am moving in!!!

–Mules are all the rage this spring. LC has a list of 10 that you will be craving. The jury is still out for me on most of these.

–Have you decided who you are voting for yet? Let’s be honest, it is  hard to keep the candidates views on things straight with all the bickering among them. Let’s just say I was shocked to see who I line up with the most. Take the quiz here and it is worth it to answer the extra questions in the categories because it changed my results.

–Are you a hipster? Take this quiz and find out.

My results: Thank goodness!!!!

    What a fabulous Friday favorites! Oh my gosh that dog on that vacuum robot is cracking me up! Let’s of course talk about food, we love shepherds pie so I am so in on this with sweet potatoes! And butter by biscuit, YUM at the restaurant!! I also had to laugh because just this week I saw someone I thought I knew and even hollered their name and it was not them, I simply turned around and walked, I guess that was playing it cool, ha ha! I hope you have a most wonderful weekend sweetheart

    That little political test was fascinating and it told me who I actually support is right for me so there you go.

    K can count to 100 by 5’s these day along with read me a story, read real words! I didn’t do that until first grade.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 18, 2016 at 10:39 am

    Oh yum I made a similar sweet potato shepherds pie a while ago and it was so good. Thanks for reminding me I need to make it again. Holler and Dash sounds like an awesome place for lunch!

  • Reply Jessi March 18, 2016 at 10:40 am

    Happy Friday! I am afraid to take the Hipster quiz because coming from Portland I should get ~ 90% 😉 Maybe the South has turned me and I don’t want to realize it.

    I only had 14 out of 102 so I feel happily hipster-free! And thank you for that quiz–it was REALLY reaffirming to know that I’m backing the right candidate, and I found out some stuff about my second choice that made me a little uneasy :/

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders March 18, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    Fried Chicken on a biscuit with goat cheese, sign me up right now! Good thing I just ate lunch, otherwise I think that I’d be drooling at my computer! Your nephew sounds like such an all star, and I love that he said BAM at the end! Your funnies are hilarious, and I especially love the one of the cat when the power goes out! I hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista March 18, 2016 at 3:26 pm
