Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Everyone!!  Andrea, Narci, and I are sharing our Friday Favorites and we’d love for you to join us!

I have some RANDOM for your Friday!!  Hope you enjoy!  ๐Ÿ™‚

My FAVORITE verse this week:

 Donโ€™t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of Godโ€™s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. Itโ€™s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.-This is from The Message

I had lunch with a good friend that I hadn’t seen in a while and she brought this up.  She’s driving to her son’s college town this weekend.  It’s far away and it’s supposed to be raining and storming the entire way there.  She said she was worried about it and has been praying for a clearing of storms on her way up.

Let’s be real, ladies….how often do we worry and stress over something we have ZERO control of?  How often do we take something that sounds as simple as the weather and place it in Christ’s hands?  He cares about YOU!!  Let’s stop worrying and leave it at His feet!  That’s my little bit of encouragement today.  ๐Ÿ™‚

My FAVORITE conversation with this guy:

Bowen:  “Hey, Mom, you know what I miss at night?”
Me:  “What?”
Bowen:  “Why, you, of course!”

Seriously….Mr. Charming is growing up!  haha!  #trouble

 My FAVORITE thing I saw on FB this week:

Let’s be real….who HASN’T done this??  That would be more interesting to see, right?  I’m pretty sure 99% of us HAVE done this.  That’s the whole reason you eat a Bugle, right?

My FAVORITE best-dressed looks at the County Music Awards earlier this week:
Carrie Underwood…simply stunning, right??  She NAILED it!

Miranda Lambert was gorgeous!!  Can you imagine how hard this night must have been for her?  She rocked it and looked great throughout the night!

Garth Brooks…so handsome. 

I thought Jewel looked fabulous as well!!  Her dress, her hair, her shoes…loved it all!

The group Little Big Town….I thought they all looked great!!!  Some articles I read were not fans of Kimberly Schlapman’s dress (the one with the big red sleeves).  I thought she looked super classy and elegant.  

My FAVORITE Worst-Dressed List: 

My boys from Rascal Flatts let me down a bit with their wardrobe.  Maybe they were just going for a”let’s get them talking” kind of thing??

I love Sugarland and Jennifer Nettles, but this definitely wasn’t my favorite look for her.  She’s so pretty.  She could pretty much make anything work, but I wasn’t feeling this one.

Did you have a favorite/least-favorite look at the CMA’s?  Or a favorite verse that really spoke to you this week??  Please share!!   Have a great weekend!  XOXO

    My favorite conversation with Bowen this week was when he had had enough of the boys playing Home Alone and said, "Miss Shay, I can't take this anymore. I'm going in your room." Hahaha! I wanted to go in there too!

    I agree with lots of your CMA pics — Carrie Underwood was my favorite but I also absolutely loved Kacey Musgraves! She looked beautiful and I think she is a great artist!!

    For real, on what Jennifer Nettles was wearing. I just love her, but that dress?! No. Miranda looked amazing. Carrie Underwood. No words. Gorgeous in everything.

    Rascal Flats looks like they have a white knuckle grip on the fountain of youth. It was BAD.

    Ha – I didn't see Rascal Flatts! That is….interesting. It may have been Carrie Underwood in a black dress, I can't remember – but Ashlyn said if she was there she would zip up the front of her dress. Baby Girl isn't a big fan of the plunging necklines!! Ha. Practice modesty girl, mama will support you!

    The picture of Racial Flatts reminds me of Fresh Prince wearing his uniform coat inside out!

    My husband was making fun of some of Carrie's outfits…I told him let's be honest, she makes everything look good!! Jennifer Nettles is my fav! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you so much for that quote about worry! I think we are all guilty of that, it's hard not to be! Turning our worries into a prayer is a great idea! Have a great weekend and thanks so much for hosting the link up!

    Loved pretty much everything Carrie wore! Miranda…strong woman right there. Loved that Garth was wearing a tux and I thought Leann Womack looked stunning! I did not see Jewel but wow..she's gorgeous. I saw her live at the Grand Ole Opry and she is just such a sweatheart. I did not care for Jennifer's dress a bit and my Carly would vote worst dress to Cam..when she came out Carly said "that's horrible what is she wearing bananas" Haha. If you haven't seen it yet you must google Mean Country Music Tweets….hilarious.

    Oh girl, Carrie just looked STUNNING. That dress was on point!

    And thanks so much for the little reminder about worrying… I worry nonstop about every little thing, so it's always good for me to hear the encouragement from someone else. It's something I've been actively working on this year, and while I'm better, I'm still not quite there yet.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Holy cow, how do you make it through the night in that last pink dress without constantly worry about flashing everyone? Even with like, a whole roll of double stick tape, I think I wouldn't be able to think about anything but my dress all night!

    I could eat that sweet little convo between you & Bowen with a spoon!!!! Bless his sweet soul!
    Loving that verse, too. Always so refreshing!!! Heart you, friend! You are such an encourager!!!

    I was thinking the same thing about Miranda! She still rocked it for sure. Not a fan of the Blake and Gwen relationship…perhaps it will grow on me? Hope all is well Erika!
