Friday Favorites: Long Weekend!

Happy Friday!  

1.  I decided kind of last minute to take today off and I could not be more excited.  I feel like it has been awhile since I have taken a day off and have stayed in the area.  While I am unsure of my exact plans, I do know that an alarm will not be part of the day tomorrow!  The temperature is supposed to be a cool 79, and I cannot wait!  

2.  I shared awhile ago about finally finding a strapless bra that I love (Wacoal Strapless Bra) and I just want to reiterate how great this bra is.  I actually have worn it 3 times this week with shirts that I could have totally worn a regular bra with!  It's just so comfortable and gives such a smooth look under clothes.  For me, it was pricier (I had never paid that much for a bra before!), but I am telling you it is worth it!

3.  I discovered a new to me author last week, and really enjoyed the book I read.  I finished Porch Lights on Monday, and will share more about it next Tuesday in my book review, but if you are looking for an easy read (In my opinion, her writing is a cross between Mary Kay Andrews and Elin Hilderbrand), I would highly suggest picking up something by Dorothea Benton Frank.

4.  Earlier this week, I shared some of my recent favorite grocery store buys.  Pesto, popsicles, pita chips and hummus!  Seems like I am not the only fan of the Outshine popsicles - can't wait to try all the different flavors that were recommended!

5.  My best friend from college had her baby this week!!!  I am over the moon happy for her and her husband.  Her little guy is so precious, with a full head of hair (I didn't want to bother her with asking permission to post a picture, so just imagine lots and lots of dark brown hair!).  I feel like he's a perfect mix of his parents which is so fun - I sometimes feel like when they are first born, you can't always tell, but he for sure looks like his mama while having his daddy's nose.  I feel like it's such a neat thing to see friends become parents...gone are the days of rolling dirty in her Buick, listening to Lil Wayne and eating Jack in the Box tacos.  Now there is a baby!  Just super, super happy for them.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  10. Dang, they do not have my size in that bra. I'm usually a bargain shopped but when it comes to bras I always splurge. I'm usually a Victoria's Secret girl, but I didn't love my last strapless bra from there. I'll have to keep checking back to see if my size ever comes back in stock.

    Congrats to your friend! I cracked up reading about y'all rolling dirty in the Buick. When I was 16 I drove an old Oldsmobile, and we used to jam out to Master P and Montel Jordan and drive that thing like we were the coolest girls in the world. Haha.

    Enjoy your day off!

  14. Hope you enjoyed your day off! I used to work at Macy's and we always told customers that Wacoal was the "Cadillac of bras" haha. They really are worth the price!
