Friday Favorites

How was your week, Friends? Ours flew by and for that, I'm grateful because we have plans for the weekend and I'm ready to get the heck out of town! I don't know how in the world I got Mr. Horton to agree to miss an Alabama football game, but I did it! Welcome to the short and sweet version of Friday Favorites with Andrea and the girls!
I decided to give up on Mother Nature as far as sending us cooler temps here in Louisiana any time soon. i wore boots for the first time this season on Monday. I paired them with a dress to work and I was so happy to be back in my favorite go to fall outfit.  

These boots are by far my favorite boots evah! I love them so much that I have another pair in black. They are so comfortable and versatile for jeans or dresses, a football game, or the office. The temps finally dropped about ten degrees on Wednesday, so I was very happy about that!

Last weekend, I finally got around to making my Mama's Pecan Pie. By Tuesday, it was gone!
Meet Oscar! He's Stephanie's newest friend in France and such a cutie! I don't even want to think about how we're going to get him home when she returns to the states (ahem!), but little sister has enjoyed getting puppy videos from her Big Sis this week! I posted a little more about her story on Wednesday. Steph had a much better week and that makes this Mama happy! I hinted that there maybe even more changes for her on the horizon, but right now, we're just praying for God's continued guidance. 

This summer we began having issues with our wi-fi. Super fast wi-fi wasn't so super at our house anymore and after phone calls to our carrier and buying new modems and all that other hoopla stuff that goes with making the wi-fi work in your house, we didn't get anywhere. We finally convinced our carrier to come look at our outside line and guess what! There was water in our line and that was causing the hit and miss service. Who knew? Our wi-fi is so darn fast now and so of course, that makes me happy. And cuss a lot less.  

Last night, the girls and I got together for GNO and we had the best time! We went to a local Mexican restaurant for margaritas and queso. Lots of laughter and catching up! Jessica picked up these cute kitchen towels for each of us. Love it!
Speaking of Halloween, I just realized that today is Friday the 13th! I'm not a superstitious person, but doesn't that look like a ghost to the right of the picture? Alise took the picture and when she saw it, she started wigging out. OMG, the child is scared of her own shadow! I promise my oven is not that dirty!

See ya next week, Peeps!


  1. Oooooooh that pecan pie looks delish! That's my favorite kind of pie. I'm in the same boat as you Laura, our temps are no where near Fall, we still have high humidity and temps in the 90's! Every Fall I have weather envy watching everyone enjoy cooler temps, you'd think I'd be used to it by now but I'm not. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. My oven would be that dirty cause I would forget to put down a cookie sheet under my pecan pie and my luck it would boil over, lol. Man, that pie looks delish, its gonna be on my doorstep today right? Cute lil towel. Girl, you and Mr. H have a ball this weekend ya hear!!! A BALL!!! Luvs ya!!

  3. So much goodness and fun!

  4. Those boots are super cute! And I've never attempted to make a pecan pie, but now I'm feeling I might need to. Yum!

  5. That towel! So cute
    Water can get in a wi-fi line? Who knew!!!!!!!!
    I'm still fighting on putting on boots. I literally have on jeans, a warm sweater... & flip flops ... I hate giving up my sandals.

  6. We should call our carrier! Our wifi is terrible. Haha. And the new puppy is adorable!!

  7. Enjoy your weekend away!

  8. That is just crazy that it DOES look like a ghost by the towel. We love pecan pie! YUM!! Have a great weekend!

  9. I've never been able to make a good pecan pie. Yours looks delicious! And that puppy is so adorable!

  10. I'm with you on the cooler temps as I'm your neighbor to the west in Texas. The calendar reads fall but those temps will just not cooperate!

  11. I'd like to have a piece of that pie right now, thank you very much! A ghost, how funny and how to get that little Oscar back to the states should be most interesting. Happy week girlie!

  12. Oh my gosh that pie looks amazing! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
