Friday Favorites

July is nearly over and I'm just now posting a Friday Favorites post!  What is wrong with me? It's called, LIFE, y'all and I'm enjoying it so much! However, this week has been extremely tough and stressful, but my faith has been strong and I trust that God will continue to fulfill his plan for my life {Jeremiah 29:11}. Thank you for your prayers.

{one.} I've been using Mario Badescu's facial spray for a while now and I love it! It's the perfect finishing spray for my makeup routine. I also keep a smaller bottle in my purse for a nice afternoon pick-me-up and although I'm not a fan of rose fragrance, I really like this smell because it isn't over-powering at all. Last week, I was in Ulta picking up a few things - including another bottle of the spray - and I got a FREE gift of the Cucumber Cleansing Lotion with my purchase that day. I have to say, that the cleansing lotion is a win, too!  It makes my skin feel so soft and I love the fresh smell, even though, once again - you guessed it! - I'm not a fan of cucumbers! Ha! I would love to know if you girls have tried any other products from this brand.

                                                                  

{two.} Last weekend when we were celebrating S's birthday at home, she asked to see some old pictures of me. By then, I was a glass of wine in, so I - being the one that never wants to show someone old photos of myself - headed off to the spare bedroom to my "stash" of old pictures. And looky what I found!!  An OLD Glamour Shot photo from when I was about 19! Maybe you saw it on Instagram. Just for laughs, I decided to compare it to the most recent picture of myself - taken in NOLA this past weekend and this is what happened!  What do you think? Look at those eye brows, y'all! And my hair!  Somethings will never change, though. Ha! I am much happier being a blonde!



{three.} BLTs. Y'all, the farming community that my husband and parents are from {I'm a city girl!} grows THE BEST tomatoes. EVER. Seriously, everyone buys Oak Grove tomatoes in our town!  My aunt and uncle dropped some of these wonderful red jewels off at my parents and of course, Mama brought me some, so we're living the good summer life right now and enjoying delicious bacon and tomato sandwiches. We probably have them three nights a week and it's becoming a tradition for Sunday lunch.  After church, of course.  If you've never had a bacon tomato sandwich, you don't know what you're missing! Oh, and don't forget the Hellman's mayonnaise, too!


{four.} Last week, Alise and I went over to help Baby Girl decorate her room. She found a beautiful tapestry - the picture below just doesn't do it justice - online for a very reasonable price and it matched her bedding perfectly. Then she saw a picture on the internet with the lights and so I decided to treat her to an early birthday present and we went to Hobby Lobby to get them. Although she decided to hang the lights differently than I would have, the finished design is stunning! I have to say I think we did a great job!


{five.} And last but not least, I want to wish my favorite man in the whole wide world a VERY Happy Birthday!  You are my best friend, my rock, and my biggest supporter. Love you to the moon and back, Babe! You're the best! Roll Tide!


Happy Friday, Peeps!  Hope it's a good one!!
