Friday Favorites-8.19.22

Happy, Happy Friday! This week was a tough one. All practices, all church services, all the things were back up and running so there were all kinds of drop-offs and pick-ups. Tab was out of town all week so typically we share some of those duties. On Wednesday evening I saw a girlfriend while I was dropping Bowen off at football practice and she said, “You look tired”. hahahaha! It’s because I WAS tired! Needless to say, I’m thankful it’s Friday!

I’m here with Andrea and I have five FAVORITES from my week!

You know what’s better than one sweet baby girl? TWO SWEET BABY GIRLS! I got to hang with these FAVORITE girlies one day last week and well, now I’m smitten. I’ve been texting their mama all week about when I get to see them again. THEY. ARE. PRECIOUS!


This might be Nixon’s FAVORITE week of the year, 7th grade football practice has started! And he’s pumped! He’s popped right out of bed every day this week in anticipation. I remember with Ebby Lee playing volleyball in the fall how all of a sudden kids in middle school really meshed. They became one. They were all truly on the same team. No one was separated by elementary schools anymore and they really blended. I guess they were just comfortable with friends they’d known for years, but sports really changed that. I don’t think it happens as much for boys as it does with girls, but I’m excited to see them all become one as well.


Look what I spied in a local McKinney boutique….these cute straps for stadium handbags…Arkansas, TCU, Texas, A & M, ARKANSAS STATE, and Oklahoma. How random and fun is that? I immediately was like, “WHY DO YOU GUYS HAVE ARKANSAS STATE HERE?” I hardly ever see anything from our alma mater here in the Dallas area so I was shocked. A FAVORITE little find of the week. Turns out two girls who work in the boutique are headed to ASU this fall!


I LOVE getting FAVORITE pictures like this from friends during the day!


This is a super random find and I can’t take credit. One of my girlfriends told me yesterday I needed to order this set from Walmart! She said it was super comfy, very inexpensive, and comes in many colors. Burgundy, olive green, and red are a few of the options. Anyway, I ordered and mine arrives later today. She recommended a small in both the top and bottom so it’s oversized and comfy.

And these are the joggers…I know, I know. They’re from the Men’s Department but I promise this friend dresses cute and always has the cutest comfy sets she’s sporting around her house.


Okay, pretty short and sweet today, but I’m off to get some house selections made ASAP! Have a great weekend, everyone!

        I think you feel more tired when someone tells you that you look tired.

    Those bag straps are fab! I love switching straps on my crossbody bags.
