Friday Favorites!

Friday, July 21, 2017

Happy Friday!  Sadly, I go back to school two week from today 😩  While no one really wants to go back, I know I'll be ready to get back to the routine and for fall to hurry on up and get here!

Today I have a few favorites to share with y'all!

 Last week Dustin and I took a little day trip, and we ate at a pretty popular Italian restaurant in that town.  I ordered the pizza and didn't realize how massive it would be!  Dustin enjoyed his meal and part of mine, and then the rest of mine became his lunch for work the next day haha!  Day trips are my favorite thing to do!

 We walked all over that downtown together.

 I've always made my bed.  Always.  Growing up, the only day I wouldn't have to make my bed would be my birthday because that was one of my mom's treats to us, but when I got to a certain age in high school, I was so OCD about making my bed a certain way that I would ask her to not make my bed on my birthday 🙈  All of that to say that when Dustin and I got married, I let him know that the bed had to be made every single day.  He occasionally makes the bed--especially during the school year and I have to go to work and he's off.  This summer he's occasionally made the bed even though I've been home (a FAVORITE!!).  I'm sharing this photo for two reasons: Dustin made the bed one morning before I got the chance to and I ignored my OCD tendencies to want to rearrange the pillows and left as is!  Win-win for all!

 I took this after I got done eating (because I was way too hungry to snap a pic before ha) but we went to eat at a Mexican restaurant that we never go to but both love!  This summer has been filled with way more eating out than we have ever done!

 Mom rode to church with us this past Sunday and it was a FAVORITE!  It was so nice to spend that time together!

I made THIS RECIPE earlier this week and YUM!!!!  

 And because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public today, I thought I'd share what worked for me/what I loved without doing a separate blog post on it.

The cardigan above is a surprise purchase and love for me because I'm not really a fan of cardigans.  I'm glad I purchased this one though because it'll look great with everything in the fall.  Side note: I told my bff about this purchase and she couldn't believe it because she knows how anti-cardigan I am ha!

I showed this sweater on IG stories and got so many compliments on it!  If I could wear it now, I would!

My leopard print scarf also got lots of compliments and don't judge when you see me wearing it every day.  (SOLD OUT)

I've been obsessing over having leather leggings for a few years now, so I took a huge chance on these faux ones AND LET ME TELL YOU, I love them!  Dustin loved them too!  I could do a whole post on my love for them 😂

I was going to keep these jeans because the fabric is so comfortable, but they are high-waisted and after thinking it through, I don't like high-waisted.  So I have this pair that shipped this morning.

What was your favorite item from the sale, or if you are just now buying, what are you hoping to get?!

  1. I also HAVE to make my bed everyday, and that's where I fold laundry. I love your Nordstrom finds! I'm thinking about getting that cardigan too. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I'm so excited for the sale! I'm hoping to get a bra, some tees and shoes!

  3. Were y'all in huntsville? That looks like Bridge Street to me! Also that pizza looks amaze! 🍕

  4. I'm so hungry because I'm working so hard at this sale, I need that pizza!! So sorry you have to go back to work soon, I know you're enjoying your summer! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I'm cracking up over your husband making the bed and you being nice and not rearranging the pillows! That is so me! I must have my bed made as soon as I wake up, and I appreciate yet hate it if Alex makes the bed and just sort of throws the pillows on! I'm still looking for a good leather jacket in the Nordstrom sale!

  6. I have to make my bed every day as well. I cannot sleep in an un-made bed. I love that leopard scarf. Have a great weekend!

  7. I loved how those leather leggings looked on you! I should've bought them, but I have to admit-the idea of leather leggings really, really freaked me out. Oh, and that cute leopard scarf-I may have bought a couple for gifts too...whoops lol.

    xoxo, SS

  8. Girl, that pizza looks GOOD. It reminds me of our favorite local pizza here in town by the looks of it! I ordered my NSale stuff this morning but I was soooo sad becuase most of what I wanted was sold out. Boooo.

  9. that pizza looks so good! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  10. Day trips really are the best! It's so fun to just explore and enjoy the time together. That pizza, oh my! Yum!

  11. We are bed-makers every. single. day. Sometimes it won't get made until 4pm if it's been a super busy day, but it'll always get made before bedtime. Hahaha!

  12. That leopard scarf was gorgeous on you so I'm glad I was able to get it. I bought one for myself and a couple to give as gifts this Fall. I loved those high wasted jeans so I'll have to keep them in mind for myself. Soft and stretchy reviews make me think they'll be perfect for me. And day trips really are the best because you don't have to pack/unpack :)

  13. That casserole look yum! Great Nordstrom finds as well!
