Friday Favorites


I don't know about you, but even with the shorter, four day week, it's been a LONG week! I don't even want to THINK about having to work five days next week! So let's NOT think about it and just jump on in to this week's Friday Favorites!  Thanks for joining me!
Baby Girl needed a study break on Monday from a huge science test the next day, so we went to see the movie, Overcomer. I heard Priscilla Shirer talk about the movie on recent podcasts with Alli Worthington and Lisa Whittle, and I have been a fan of Alex Kendrick since he visited and spoke at our church many years ago. Let me just say that you really need to see this movie. It is SO good, but take a box of kleenex with you. On the way home, Alise and I had a great conversation about "divine appointments." 
For the baby shower that I mentioned on Wednesday, I had crunched up some Oreo cookies for a topping for the ice cream bar. I had so much left over, that I decided to find a recipe on Pinterest that I could use them in and it just so happened that I already had an Oreo pie crust in the pantry. This no bake recipe fit the bill for what I was looking for. It was the perfect dessert for a weekend of college football! This weekend, jambalaya and chocolate cake with peanut butter icing is on the menu. 
I purchased my first Victoria Emerson leather wrap bracelet last week and I. AM. HOOKED!!  I LOVE THEM!! I'm like Oprah!  Everyone's getting a VE wrap bracelet for Christmas! Ha! But seriously! Be sure to visit their website and see all the latest styles. I'll show you how I've been wearing mine in another post soon! 
In case you didn't know it, Ulta is having their "21 Days of Beauty" campaign right now. I ran in the store on Wednesday specifically to pick up these. I thought it was such a great deal, four pads for less than $9 (regularly $32 for eight pads). I haven't tried them yet, have you? I'll let you know what I think soon enough. On Thursday, our store was out of the MAC Creme in my Coffee lipstick, so I came home and ordered it online.

True story: While I was in Ulta that day, I got a call from my bank letting me know that I had left my drivers license in the cannister at the drive through earlier. I was SO thankful that the bank teller called me to come back by and pick it up. Whew! 
Did you see my announcement last Friday? Well, in case you didn't, it's certainly worth mentioning again today! I simply can not WAIT for you to join us! 
Happy Friday, Loves! I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Wayne and I had plans to dash out of town, but since the heat indexes are going to be greater than 100 degrees here this weekend, we postponed our trip and opted for just a date night instead. I'm going to finish my fall decorating, and there is basketball practice and homecoming shoes shopping on Alise's agenda this weekend, too. 

See ya back here on Monday for a confessions post!

  8. What a cute bracelet! My friend make her own jewellery and has a similar design, I wear it often! :)

    Thanks for the movie recommendation too - they have been sharing it a lot on the radio here (and I love all the songs!) but I haven't been to see it yet!

    Hope that you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you!

  12. That pie looks so yummy!! It's crazy to me that your heat index is still so high; we're actually a bit chilly here today with a high of only 68!

  13. So good to catch up with you. May have to make the Oreo recipe as the Gran girls do love them some oreos. I want to see Overcomer and need to make that a priority this next week. Have a great Lord's Day tomorrow and a wonderful new week!

  14. Darling bracelet! My BFF always sends me the cutest arm candy. I am thinking this might be something she hasn't seen yet and I can surprise her for a change.

    That Oreo dessert looks sinful. Same BFF makes a delicious Oreo no bake dessert that I have only made once because I almost ate the entire thing myself. So good. Chocolate cake with peanut icing sounds downright sinful, too!!
