Friday Favorites-11.20.20

 Hey There, Friday!  
Do you know what today marks?  At 3:52 p.m. the Slaughter crew is on Thanksgiving Break!  WAHOO!

I have a little roundup of some Friday Favorites for you today.  Like all Fridays, I’ve teamed up with Andrea to bring you this weekly link-up.

First up are GIFT GUIDES!  I included both new and old items and each of my kiddos got their own gift guide.  Just in case you have kids or gift to kids the same ages as mine.  I thought these ideas might help!  Getting ideas from others is my FAVORITE!

And Ebby Lee’s is scheduled for next week!


Did you see my Grocery Challenge post on Saturday?  It’s always a FAVORITE working with brands I love and this little challenge was absolutely no exception!
And that gorgeous kitchen I’m in is a Tradition Home.  You can take a little tour of this model home in this post.


I shared a FAVORITE Advent and Christmas book in my Christmas Talk post on Tuesday.


One of Britt’s FAVORITE friends dropped off this giant teddy bear for her birthday.  This bear is hardly noticeable…am I right?


Tab and I are finally finished with Season Three of Yellowstone.  This show is a FAVORITE for me!  Now, it’s definitely rated, “R”, so please be warned about that.  The scenery is absolutely stunning, I love all the characters, and now I’m anxiously awaiting Season Four when we pick up with the Dutton Family again.

Clearly we’re fans.  Remember this?
Tab and I started watching around August and just finished.  I LOVED Season 1, Season 2 was just okay to me, but then Season 3 was GREAT!


There’s a semi-new Mexican restaurant in the next town over called Lupe Tortilla{I think it started in west Texas}.  I’ve been once for lunch and thought it was delicious!  I’ve already told my family we’re having it delivered tonight for dinner.  Can’t wait to share a new FAVORITE with my FAVORITES!  Local peeps-you need to try it STAT!


My two FAVORITE boys have so much in common but one thing they disagree on is FAVORITE football teams.  Nixon’s been an OU fan since he was four-years-old so when Bowen became a football fan he did what any little brother would do, he chose his brother’s in-state rival team to be his FAVORITE.  Of course he did!  Tab’s off this weekend so our Saturday evening will be spent on the back patio watching the Bedlam game between OU and OSU.  It’ll be a FAVORITE kind of night.  With all that 2020 has brought, I’m thankful some regular things like this game are still happening.


Thank you so much for reading today!  Be sure to link up!

    The beef fajitas at Lupe Tortilla are the BEST! If you havenโ€™t tried the beef fajitas yet, you are missing out.
    I have been to the original Lupe Tortilla in Houston TX.

    I'm originally from Houston but now live in KC (where hubby is from) and EVERYTIME I go home, Lupe is a first stop! Get the steak and shrimp fajitas! The homemade flour tortillas can be eaten as their own meal #thiswasnotsponsored ๐Ÿคฃ

    Lupe Tortilla actually started in Houston and I can remember going there as a child to eat with my grandparents. They had a sandbox outside for the kids to play in and we thought it was the greatest thing ever!

    Hooray for y'all getting Lupe nearby. And, the beef fajitas will ruin you for beef fajitas from anywhere else. Also, I've never eaten anything else from there, and I've been eating Lupe (they are all around Houston area) for a lot of years!! Happy Thanksgiving week!
