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 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!

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!

5. Misc. Fun
Wednesday ~ Stay on Target


Our Daisy would've been 16 today. It's been a year and a half and I still think about and miss her! 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.


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.


(And note: I finished Bridgerton this good!)

Someone knit me the Bernie below, cute!

My Fav...

  25. OH MY GOSH - A knitted Bernie!!! I gotta see if I can find a pattern! LOL
    & also that mask below the nose. I know I GLARE at people when I see that out.
    Masks really do help during the winter. I've actually worn mine walking in the cold for some miles - HAHA I know neighbors are like - OK - that's extreme

  27. We don't get out much either but some times a social distance outing is just what's needed. I'm so glad you got to have a fun day! Seeing you with your son's girlfriends makes my heart so happy. That must be a lot of fun! Loving your leopard dress! Perfection as always.

  28. I came for the leopard dress, but that red truck sign with the interchangable items is really awesome!
