Friday FAVES!

Friday, February 15, 2019

Hey, Hey, it's Friday!!!!!  I'm so excited because we've got a three day weekend ahead since Monday is a weather day for my school system!!  Woohoo!!

I've got a few FAVES to share with y'all today!!

 Last weekend Dustin was off work, so we left Saturday morning for a day trip to Nashville since we don't live too far away.  We had the best time and found a new FAVORITE restaurant--Edley's BBQ in the 12th South neighborhood.  Dustin's even talking about the next time we go back haha!

 I tried my hand at making an acai bowl, but mine didn't turn out thick enough.  I didn't like it, but Dustin did!  I took a few bites/sips since it was liquidy, and he ate the rest and loved it!  I've got to give it another try and use a frozen banana instead of a regular one.  I think that will help.

 This picture popped up on my Facebook memories from Monday and it has me wishing we had snow like this again!!  This was the year both my sister and I got married, so it was a fun last good snow living at home.  We put on our warmest clothes and played outside all morning with our mom.

 Wednesday was our first sunny day in a while, so I went over to my dad's after school to run in his neighborhood.  He ended up riding his bike while I ran and that was so nice!  Afterward, Dustin wanted to go try out the new burger place in town, so we went early since I knew they would be packed.  It was a fun, impromptu date night!

 All I wanted for Valentine's Day was for Dustin to cook dinner so we didn't have to go out to eat.  I requested the exact same meal he made last year, so he did just that!  He plated the meal so well, that I had to take a picture!  And now I've got half of a filet mignon to eat today at school for lunch!

For dessert, he made chocolate covered strawberries!  I ate about 5-6 haha!!  (You can see in the top where he tried to drizzle white chocolate over it, but he burned it in the microwave)

I don't think I've ever shared about my FAVORITE sheets here on the blog, but my FAVE sheets are made locally--which makes it even better!!  Last February, Dustin surprised me with this sheet set since I had been talking about wanting some.  The only thing keeping me from getting a set was the price--they were more than I really wanted to spend on sheets.  But after getting a pair, I have realized how they are worth every single penny!  The cotton is grown locally by a family we personally know, and then they've matched the creation of the sheets to heirloom sheets they own from generations past--because we all know that things made a long time ago are better quality.  These sheets get better with each wash, and we will probably never sleep on anything but these sheets!  Go read the reviews on these sheets--they are amazing.  And then order yourself a set and tell me how you love them!
**We have the Bankhead Basics fitted and flat sheet.
**We have the Heirloom Classic pillowcases.

I wrote Wednesday about my all time FAVORITE reads, so you need to check it out if you are a big reader!

I am LOVING this song!

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend--I know I will!


  1. Umm....Dustin plated that meal perfectly!! That is what I wanted to have for dinner and took filets out of the freezer but in the end we ended up at Outback. haha

  2. I love the Dustin made you a sweet dinner! And that y’all went out for an impromptu burger after your run. Have a super sweet weekend my friend!

  3. I love acai bowls! We love to use the starter packs from Trader Joe's and mix them with apple juice and a frozen banana!

  4. Dustin plated that meal?! Has he ever thought of being a chef? Or a food blogger? Haha. He did such a great job! It looks like it's from a fancy restaurant!

  5. They key for acai bowl consistency is frozen fruit and very minimal liquid - like...a couple tablespoons max! They are my absolute FAVORITE and super popular here. Now I'm thinking I need one, LOL!

  6. I love how he plated the dish! So sweet of him. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  7. Dustin did SO WELL with your Valentine's Day dinner. It looks delicious!
