FRIDAY FAVORITES...FOR THE LOVE OF

Happy Fri-YAY! The end of January is signaling us that much closer to Spring. Pool opening is now on the books too for April 26th. But we did have a lot of snow this week and I must admit, it’s been GORGEOUS. This Friday Favs is for the love of...my fam, a sweet gift, great dress, etc...well, let’s just get to it.


1. Fun in Indy
Cannot even tell you how giddy I was, even just to get away for a few hours to see our boy in Indy with the crew. I’ll admit we are good social distancing stewards, and we stay home the entire weekend most weekends, so a day trip was exactly what the Dr. ordered. It was brrrr cold but our sons apartment is within downtown walking distance, so we did it and masks come in handy for the cold too. We were able to find a great eatery where we had a section of the restaurant pretty much all to ourselves, so it was glorious. Then back to the apt for Playing with our newest grand cat, Reese's birthday cake (celebrating 2), chillin out and virtual reality games (so cool)!





This beautiful girl! She happens to have a birthday on Monday! 25, the quarter century mark! In honor of her birthday, I shared a Cap’n Crunch shot with her on our trip to Indy and it was so delicious! If you’re not sure what that is, they coat the rim of a shot glass with cinnamon and sugar and it’s a mix of Bailey’s and Fireball, my two favorite liquors! Also, a favorite is this girl! She adds so much joy to our family and is the perfect person to be an RN because her heart is so full of love and compassion! Adore her! Yellow is her favorite color and look how beautiful she looks in it!


2. Red Truck Welcome Sign

The sweet girl above belongs to one of our precious sons and they both know how much I love red trucks! They saw Red truck Welcome Sign on social media and knew it had to be mine! The lady that makes them kind of went viral and so shipping was a little behind but how cool is it that when we got back to their house after our trip to Indy Saturday night, it had arrived! I love the interchangeable delightful, cute slides for the back of the truck! The shamrocks are on their way to me for St. Patrick’s Day and I also of course order pineapples!

Another also HERE sold on Etsy.

4. For the LOVE of Leopard

This DRESS! I cannot even tell you! THE BEST! I have had my eye on it for a while. It is one of the top-rated clothing pieces on the Mint Julep Boutique website! It is the perfect DRESS and a perfect dress for me! The leopard print is of course spot on and the ruffles not only on the three-quarter length sleeves, but the skirt are so fun and flirty! It’s another modest one that still has a sexy vibe, and I loved the elastic waist. It feels so good on and I would give it 10 stars!

MISSING MY BIRTHDAY GIRL

Our Daisy would've been 16 today. It's been a year and a half and I still think about and miss her every.single.day! Many of you have lost your beloved pets since then and spoken with me about it. I know your pain and I empathize with you so much. Read about the circumstances regarding her loss HERE.



LOVING TAN

Oh, How I LOVE this stuff. Yep, see my legs in the leopard dress above...tan thanks to Loving Tan. My legs are so white this time of year and Loving Tan has come to my rescue. I tried several last year and this is a clear winner 110%. Take it from a girl who loves to be tan. It is a lil pricey but lasts a long time and so worth it to me, especially since we can’t travel to get the sun and it’s a balmy 25 degrees here, lol. There are 3 shared but unless you're a ghost, get this Dark Shade. It's still not dark but a perfect golden! And very easy to apply. I love the Applicator Mitt too.

STAY ON TARGET

I have shared both these cute outfits on Instagram, but they are both so good, I had to share here too. Last Week, I Shared the coveted Target star jacket and man, what a winner.


Target used to ebb and flow in the clothing department. A season would be great and then the next one, blah....

 

But I must say, the past couple years, it all has just slayed. So many good finds. I’m hoping 2021 continues with the flow of cuteness and great finds. And the greatest thing about fabulous goodness at Target is its plentiful availability and Low PRICES!


This Hot Pink Sweater is darn near perfection and I’m sure you’ve seen lots of people wearing it. All the boxes get checked with this one; especially the soft, perfect length and blouson sleeves boxes, xoxo

I loved jazzing this sweater up with the stripes in the Bag Strap. I am very new to the bag strap game and I must say, I love it!


This flattering Black Dress is also a "hole in one" for many reasons. It’s slimming, perfect midi length, sexy without being revealing and its whaaat? $20!!! That’s what! So easy to style too.

VALENTINE'S DAY TIERED TRAY

In continuing with all things LOVE, here is this year‘s Valentines Tiered Tray! You may remember Last Year, I did two, a pink one and a red one. I have plans for a new pink one next year, but that tray is currently adorned with a new coffee theme that I can’t wait to share with you soon.

 

I used many of the same items I did for my red and white tray last year but there are some fabulous new pieces that I was tickled pink to obtain, or should I say red, so to speak! LOL.

 

You know I’m crazy for the little Knit hats made by fabulous knitters on Etsy. This red and white one is no exception. 


The darling Letter Boards from my dear friend at Felt Creative Home, who also creates these trays, introduced me to another Etsy store called Words with Means and that’s where I obtained the darling letter board lips.

The Truck round Shiplap Sign is a definite favorite!

Last year I used a precious little valentine bicycle on my tree that my mom got me but this year I decided to fill my coveted black metal truck with felt hearts!.


A new XOXO Rae Dunn mug filled in the back with some red color and every now and then I pull it off to sip my coffee! Of course, I still adore the red pitcher the tiny hearts, A great TJ Maxx find. 


The little wood Book Stacks are such his and so perfect for these trays!

FRIDAY FAVORITES.....SEEING RED

Where there is change, there must be hope in there somewhere. Let’s hope for the best as we move forward. All I will say about this week. Happy Friday Babes. Considering most weekends, we don’t go anywhere, I am so excited for a trip to Indianapolis tomorrow with our kids to see our Indy resident son. Going to be freezing cold but we’ll make the most of it!

 

1. Red Heart Waffle Maker
Ok, I love red and I am missing all the red in my house from the holidays because I don’t use it as an accent color anymore, but it always looks so good against all of my gray and white. As you saw I did decorate the porch for Valentine’s Day and a little bit in the dining room, but I am all about hearts! I finally got one of these little waffle makers to make chaffles and I think this would be the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. 
It is so stinking cute! And a great deal HEREHERE and this extra cute one HERE.

so cute


2. Red Shoe Gifts

Let’s talk red shoes! My mom and I have a tradition where every Christmas we get each other one small gift with the red shoe motif. Well, this year she was not able to get out and shop as much and I kind of forgot about it so she made me a red shoe out of cookie dough, hilarious! But anyway I shared these at Christmas time as great stocking stuffers and I got my mom the Magnets. I think these are the cutest little Valentine gift ideas for the females in your life!

4. Swiss Dot Dress

The name of this Swiss Dot Dress from Mint Julep Boutique is You’re Mine and rightly so because I am so glad it is mine. It is SOOO Cute. Surpassed all my expectations; Comfy, lined, rouching at the sleeves. So many ways to style it, but here I wanted some rose gold accessories and a cute pink bandana and wa-la I match my Valentine Porch, lol.


Rose Gold Sandals HERE
And HEART Bag
This faux fur Heart Bag is from my dear friend at Maluniers. It comes in 3 colors, is very affordable and would make a great Valentine gift for the ladies in your life. She even offers gift bundles on these. You may remember Maluniers is the great shop where I got my beautiful Reversible Poncho.
