Friday Favorites-We’re THANKFUL

Hey Girlies!!!  Happy Friday!!  I’m sharing some favorites again along with a few of my favorites girls, Narci and Andrea.  We’d love for you to join the link-up!  Just share a favorite ANYTHING on your blog, post, and link-up!!  We have a FUN surprise for you today!!

First…the winner of the Be Still Clothing Company (one of my very FAVORITE new companies) Giveaway is…
Hannah Rae
Hannah, please e-mail me and we’ll get you a shirt!

Andrea and I are hosting another FAVORITE Things Party on Monday!!  Come check out a few of our favorite things under $10 OR join us and link up!

 One of my FAVORITE posts every week is my “What We Wore Wednesday” posts.  I switched it up a little this week and didn’t get to post my “What I’d Wear to a NFL Game” outfits.  I’m going to share a few today!

First stop on this trip, is Atlanta, Georgia!!

This thermal lace top would look GREAT under all my vests/jackets AND great for a Falcon’s game as well.  
I don’t know what it is about a fur vest, but I love them.  Seriously…I have a soft (and furry…hahaha!) spot in my heart for fur vests!!  This black vest would look fabulous with that red top.

I’m LOVING this black vest option as well!

Next stop…a Carolina Panther’s game!!  That blue is just pretty, isn’t it??

This cardigan is so cute.  It looks so put together but so comfy as well.

This white tee would look great under the cardigan.

I’d pair it with this Kendra Scott necklace to bring out the Carolina blue!

Hello, New Orleans!!!  I’m a big fan of the black/gold combo!  Especially right this second.  Gold is so in!!  So a Saint’s game would for sure be fun!!  

***A little trivia fact for you…which New Orlean Saints’ football player has a son named, Bowen??***

Drew Brees

I’ll never forget the day or moment it happened.  I had just arrived at our Preschool  Teacher’s Summer Retreat.  (Before Bowen I taught preschool two days a week at our church)  I am NOT a fan of camping or any thing that requires me to take a sheet or a sleeping bag to sleep on a thin mattress.  Especially not a fan when I’m six months pregnant.  AND…it was GUSHING rain from the sky that night.  The room I was in started leaking rain, so we had to drag our “mattresses” into the meeting room and sleep on the floor!! 

 WHOA!!  I got a little sidetracked and a little too “into” that story!!  Anyway…Shay called while I was there and said that she had the PERFECT name.  (Tab had been wanting Beau all along, but I just wasn’t feeling it.) She said, “Drew Brees has a son named, Bowen.”.  I knew instantly!  That was it!  

Another CRAZY part about that story is that I looked up the other Brees’ children’s names.  They have a child named “Callen”.  For YEARS and YEARS, I wanted to name a boy “Kallen”.  How crazy is that??  (Once I was pregnant, I never felt like “Kallen” was supposed to be their names…but I love the name.)  Maybe I am meant to be GREAT friends with his wife??  Mrs. Brees…CALL me!!  I think we’d instantly become besties!  haha!

Doesn’t this vest SCREAM New Orlean’s Saints?? 

Last stop on the trip…Tampa Bay, Florida, to see the Buccaneers!  

This red sweatshirt looks cute and comfy for a Buccaneers’ game.  It’d be darling paired with ANY of those vests!!

Hope you found a little inspiration and maybe you realized my love for faux fur vests is running strong??  hahaha!!


WAHOO!!!  We wanted to express our THANKS to YOU!!  We’re so thankful to all of you who read our blogs, link-up with us, and share your comments/stories too.  I never dreamed that getting to participate in this blogging “community” would be so much fun!!  We’re giving away a $150 Nordstrom gift card to one lucky winner!!  Enter that Rafflecopter NOW, girls!!  Good Luck!! 

Hope you have an AWESOME weekend!!

    The Brees family is the CUTEST. Y'all should be besties. My husband's claim to fame is that he played against Drew in high school and not only did Drew's team kill their team but he scored on my poor husband while he was on defense. Yeah. That's why he's in the NFL and Matt's an engineer 🙂
