Friday Favorites - a little of this, a little of that!

While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites
Oh happy day, it's FriYAY!!!  I love when my peeps are all going to be home and schedules get {a little} less hectic!  FAVORITES include just laying around watching tv, playing games, eating popcorn and just hanging out.  I know it won't be like this for long but for now...I will totally soak it all up!

Looking back over the last few of my Friday FAVORITES, I noticed a theme.  RANDOM - as in completely random!!!  Well, I like tradition so here's more of my random Friday FAVS! :)

While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites
Do you have a little girl who loves to wear tutus?  Hope sure does so when I found these tutus for under $10, I knew I had to at least try them.  Worried that I would get what I paid for, I was pleasantly surprised.  We've had these for years and she wears them all.the.time.  They are definitely wear.wash.dry.repeat!  Pick Your Plum just listed them again and you can find them here.

Didn't realize the white one was her FAVORITE till I started looking back through pictures! ;)

I was at lunch with a friend this week and we were chatting about her niece's upcoming wedding.  Later that afternoon, I received an email from Mark and Graham with these precious hand embroidered handkerchiefs!  I'm a sucker for traditional/sentimental gifts so I quickly forwarded to my friend.  She's going to use these at the bridal luncheon she is hosting.  The girls might not appreciate them now but I received one similar to these over twenty years ago from a friend.  Lots of happy and sad tears have been shed in it and it's definitely one of my FAVS!

Remember last year when I gifted myself this fabulous Mamuye Leather Tote from FashionABLE?  It's been a year now and it's still my FAVORITE bag!  And, this is saying a lot because I L-O-V-E bags!!!  
Upon Cassie's suggestion, I even added this fun bag charm from Furbish Studio!  I noticed they are currently sold out but you can leave your email and they will notify you when they are back in stock!

My dear friend, Shelly, at Queen in Between, shared these super yummy {mini} treats that would be perfect to make for Valentine's Day.  Everyone knows my skills in the kitchen are lacking but I think even I could pull these off!  I can't wait to work on these with the girls.  Wouldn't they make fun neighbor gifts?  Or gifts to leave for the mailman?  Or teachers?  Or friends?

Oh.my.goodness!  If you haven't downloaded the app Bitmoji, please stop what you are doing and go do it!!!  Think of it as your own personal emoji + memes all wrapped in to one.  Shelly, Katy and I carry on complete text message conversations with nothing but bitmojis!  #wecrackourselvesup
This bitmoji was created just for me! #justsayin'

Know what else is my FAVORITE?!  Giveaways!!!  Katy, Shelly and I are hosting a Hug in a Mug giveaway and we would LOVE if you would enter!  Good luck!!!

  2. Yes! My daughter is obsessed with tutus! I will have to check that out! And I have the same elephant charm like Cassie's! It is so much fun! Of course, some people think it is a children's toy and I am like umm, nope it's my toy :) So glad I found your blog! I love Cassie too!

  3. Beautiful bag, my kind of leather tote. I have one and I don't use it nearly as much as I should. By nature, I'm not a purse person, but give me an oversize tote, I'm good. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I am totally in love with Bitmoji's and I drive my husband and daughters crazy with them. My sweet gym friend introduced me to them and she and I will carry on whole conversations with them! LOL One of my friends said to me "this cartoon even looks like you" HAHAHAHA! And FYI, I am now into full reading mode of Kon Mari so lets hope I get thru it this weekend. I am in the process of putting away my kitchen and I am using the "do I find joy" method and so far I have gotten rid of SO MUCH stuff. Unreal. Once my kitchen is complete and I can cook again, I will start on my closet and dresser. Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. Glad to know we aren't the only ones who crack up at the Bitmojis! They are the best! We get so excited when we discover new ones! It's so addicting!

      Isn't it crazy how much we acquire? I've found getting rid of it isn't near as hard as I thought it would be! Now I'm all like, "be gone!" - I just want a nice, clean home!!!

      Keep me posted on how your progress is going!!! I love reading about others journeys!
