Friday Favorites




Happy Friday! I'm liking up with Narci, Andrea, and Erika for Friday Favorites!

It's been one of those weeks. So. Much. Coffee. 


ONE

If I had to rank my favorite seasons it would go as follows: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. I know, I know.  Needless to say, I'm so ready for fall to be here. My mind still works in school seasons so since it's mid August, in my head it's fall! 

I was so glad to see that a display in Publix confirmed my feelings. I'm not a beer fan but the acorn squash and pumpkin packaging made me squeal! 


TWO

Last Sunday was a really nice breather from all the studying. My roommate and I slept in (well slept in by our standards) and went to church. After listening to a great sermon we went to Tupelo Honey for brunch. It was delicious. For those who follow me on Instagram got a sneak preview. 

Here's a picture of us before church! We've really grown a lot from attending Elevation. It also has really deepened our friendship. Thankful to have a roomie to go to church with!


Here's my scrumptious brunch. Seriously, thank you Jesus for chicken and biscuits :)


THREE

I'm a pop culture junkie. It's an unhealthy addiction. I was on People.com (my go-to celebrity site) and saw pictures of Giuliana and Bill Rancic's new home. First off, they are one of my favorite celebrity couples. They have a relationship that is rooted in faith, which is rare in Hollywood. 


Well, they bought a new home in Chicago and revamped it. It's beautiful! I would love to live in a house that gorgeous. It's modern but not sterile.





FOUR

I loved my Wednesday post because it gave me the opportunity for y'all to get to know me better. If you missed it, you should definitely check it out!

I tell you a little about Matt-Lauer...:)


And my trip to Russia...


...one of my favorite posts to date! Thanks Molly!

FIVE

You've probably noticed from some of my selfies that somedays I'm wearing glasses and some days I'm not. Well I just love my glasses. A little anecdote for your Friday. When my sister was in Kindergarten and I was in second grade she got glasses. So naturally, I was jealous and wanted some too so I told my Mom I couldn't see well. Low and behold, my vision really was blurry! I will never forget the day of putting on glasses and thinking how different everything looked.


Then glasses got old. They lost their appeal. So in 3rd grade, yes you read that right, I got contacts. And I haven't gone back since! I am the ideal contact wearer. I wear them during the day and ALWAYS take them out every night. I never sleep in them. Therefore, I always needed glasses for nighttime and in the mornings. These are my newest pairs of glasses and I adore them. They are cute and sturdy (aka they don't fall off my face easily).




I still wear my contacts during the day but by the end of the day my eyes are so tired that I've started putting my glasses on before I leave work. For my fellow blind people out there, my prescription is a -5.50...yikes!

Well y'all, those are my favorites for the week. See you back here Monday, okay? As always, have a good weekend and thanks for reading! xoxox

  1. Ah so many comments for this post! I did the same thing when my brother got braces, I was so jealous {I quickly learned not to be}. Coffee, YAS! Love Ms. Ranic and her house, what?!?! It's beautiful! And I love summer, but I am excited to wear hoodies and sweatshirts in a few months {literally not cold in Alabama till LATE October}.

  5. Oh man I'm obsessed with Giuliana & BIll (did you watch their TV show when it was on air?) and their house is unbelievable! I'm traveling with my husband to Chicago this fall and I'm hoping we can go to RPM for dinner while we're there!

    I totally feel your pain with contacts/glasses. My right eye is -7.50 and my left is -6.50!!! I've never met anybody with worse eyes than mine hahaha

    Happy Friday, love :)

    1. I don't have you beat but you've met your match! My eyes are -7 and -6.5! The good thing is they've been about the same since my mid 20s and I'm nearing 40 now... eek! (I still feel like I'm 25 though!) My poor son though is already at -3. He will be blind by the time he's grown up!

    2. Yes...I did watch their show and loved it! If you go to RPM you must blog it! Wow...you beat my eyesight! That's insane!

  6. That's so funny we both posted about G+B! Their house is gorgeous wow! I want that backyard with those glass doors, so perfect!

  7. CANDY CORN AT THE STORE YESTERDAY! <3 FALLELUJAH!

    I got glasses in first grade and wore them to do everything until last summer. Now I am your ideal contact wearer, but it literally is a process. Never do I just wake up and pop them in my eye. They always have makeup or an eyelash or SOMETHING on them and sometimes I wonder why I decided to get them hahaha! I love your new glasses...I've been wearing the same style for years but those are cool!! :)

  8. I love the Rancics as well! I hate how so many media outlets bash Giuliana. But I do have to disagree with you on Matt Lauer...

    1. Matt-Lauer is more of a joke then anything. I just love the Today show in general!
