Happy Friday my sweet loves! I just have such a hard time believing that February is half over! But that’s OK let’s get closer to some sweet warmth and sunshine! My favorite meteorologist gave us that said reality that yesterdays high tee of 40 degrees is the highest we are going to see for weeks. Boo but YAY to FRIDAY and a few FUN Favorites! 

1. New Restaurant Date Night
On Saturday, Mr. Nine and I took my mom to the airport and thought we’d make a date night out of it. We were excited to hit a local new restaurant that is housed in a historical library. The crazy thing is my cousin and her family were the ones that renovated the library into a residence and then they were approached by the restaurant developer to buy it and thus Jesus’s Latin Grill and Tequila Bar was born. I had a orange Creamsicle margarita, well I had two, and they were utterly delicious. The flavors of the food are very unique and everything just melted in our mouths and hit the spot. It was the first time in six weeks that I have felt stuffed since I have really been working on my eating, but the binge and cheat day was so worth it!

2. Small Town Girls
Small town girls. I’m a small-town girl and I’m proud of it. I especially want to give props to three small town girls whose performances on the Grammy Awards blew me away Sunday night.

I still get chills every time I hear the song Shallow and Lady Gaga did an amazing rendition of her award-winning song. 

This girl, J -Lo, has my heart big time! Just look at this smoking lady! We are close in age so I severely admire what this woman does!

And the incomparable Dolly Parton! Here is the whole tribute!

This woman is simply the best. The minute I heard her and Miley Cyrus singing Jolene, it took me back to my beloved Nashville Girls' Trip!!

AMEN to this!!!

I am all about the lavenders and the lilacs! These purple hues just scream spring! I had not pulled out my lavender corduroy pants in a while. It was fun to pair them with a favorite cream poncho and lavender scarf.

  6. Now I want a creamsicle margarita! You guys have the best date nights and you are just darling. I love the lavender corduroys! Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. You are my FAVORITE small town girl!! When I saw your first pic with the cut off shorts, I was like, WHOA! Not quite ready for cut offs in our neck of the woods (and I know not in yours, either!), but it will be soon enough for sure! I consider myself a small town girl, too, because our city isn't that big at all and I'm acutally a "burb" baby since I grew up on the outside of town. I loved the story behind the restaurant that you and Jay went too! So interesting at that margarita looks so yummy! Seeing that pic of us all in Nashvegas is definitely what I needed this morning! Love you all so much!

  8. YES to the lavender/lilac love! I really want to get something in that color in my closet by Spring! (if not sooner!) Loving all of your cute outfits this week, and your new restaurant night sounds fun!

  9. I am with Gina - love the lilac color! It just makes it feel like spring! (And, yes, we had a little bit of warmer weather yesterday - and now I am ready for spring!) Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  10. I love doing date nights, breakfasts, and lunch. It looks like you guys had a fun night together. I love the cream and lavender together for an outfit. I course you look amazing in everything. Have a great day and weekend. :)

  11. A cheat day is always worth it no? hehe.

    Also How cute are those jeans with the fringe!

  12. That Margarita sounds amazing! What a nice date night. That Journey meme had me cracking up. It's so true! Loving all of your Valentine's Day outfits. So much festive fun! I hope you have a great weekend!

  13. Dave and I were out playing trivia and the Grammy's were playing on the TV. Just before Dolly Parton was on the screen, one of the questions was about who had remade Jolene. I didn't even know it was Miley, lol. That new restaurant in an old library sounds awesome! Have a great weekend!

  14. You have so much love in your heart Andrea!!
    How cool is that new restaurant, and you have a little "in" about it!! We've been eating entirely too much this week, and I'm ready to cut back! Ugh!!
    Have a wonderful weekend, and sending big hugs!!

  15. I missed the Grammys so I need to watch those 3 clips. Thank you! You and the Mr and such hotties on your date night. The food and that margarita sounded amazing. You always look so stylish and pulled together! Happy Weekend!

  16. So many favorites this week!! I just watched that Dolly Parton clip again! I love her and Miley singing Jolene. How was the orange creamsicle margarita?! You know I would try that too! Love the pink sweater and the love outfit from yesterday too!

  21. Lol at the Journey meme! And AMEN!! So funny! Have a wonderful weekend!

  22. I think its cool how we both had date nights in historical buildings with fancy drinks. haha.
    I think Jay-lo is a hot tamale. I tuned in just in time to hear Dolly. She had the whole place standing. It was awesome.

  23. J-Lo is probably one of my favorite celebrities. She's gorgeous - seems so real & kind... & she gives me motivation to look good in your more 'mature' years.
    Thanks for the Dolly video - I missed it & wanted to see it so bad. DOLLY IS QUEEN!

  24. That song is now stuck in my head! Such a yummy date night for y'all, you look so happy and in love! Stay warm and snuggly this weekend!

  26. Definitely a small town girl here (and now I'm singing those lyrics!). Sounds like a yummy date night. I love that purple/poncho look. I don't think I own anything in that shade but it sure is pretty.

  27. Humming Journey . . .

  28. That poncho look is darling! I love how it looks paired with lavender! That dreamsicle margarita sounds heavenly!

  29. Your date night sounds wonderful. Don't you hate walking around hungry. Oh metabolism, why did you have to fail us???? Love your lavender looks and of course the hot pink sweater. I'm a medium town girl. LOL. Have a great weekend sweetest of sweets! XO

But last night we had a date night and I went to town. Paying for it today! :) Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and the best weekend!! XO


  35. So good to be back reading my favorite blogs. Can't believe it's going to be so cold for so much longer. Ugh! We're still having rain, rain and more rain. Love your outfits and glad you and Hubby had a "date night." Happy week!

  36. Sounds like a GREAT week! That restaurant sounds amazing! I'm a big fan of those kinds of recreations! And I love your roundup of small-town girls. :-) I have recently fallen in love with Dolly Parton again. The hubby and I watched "Dumplin'" on Netflix this weekend and it renewed my love of Dolly!

    Hope this week is just as great!
