Friday Favorites!

Friday is here and it feels so good! Linking up (with AndreaErika, & Narci) again for Friday Favorites today. Let's jump right to it:

A New Dress
So, a couple of weeks ago, I found an old F21 gift card that still had some money on it. Judge if you want, but Forever 21 does have some cute stuff for great prices (like this new shift dress I got for under $15!) Also, after being in the store for a while, I've never been more certain that I am very much #foreverolderthan21. These young whippersnappers and their crazy trends :)

I have been trying for a couple of days to get Grayer to clap. This morning, he finally did it. And boy has got it down. It's so sweet :)

Taylor Farms Kale Salad
Last weekend while we were picking up diapers and a rotisserie chicken (random, yes.) from Sam's Club, one of the samples were of this kale salad. It is filled with lots of yummy stuff - kale, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, & a poppyseed dressing - so I picked up a bag. It's really good just the way it is, but I may add some chopped chicken to mine next time to make it even more filling. 

Choosing a Paint Color
With the house closing not far off, I figured it was about time I decided on a paint color. I had a lot of different colors in our old house, which I really loved, but I think I want everything to be more streamlined in the new house. With the possible exception of the bathrooms & laundry room, I want all the rooms to be the same color. I wanted a "greige" - something that could either look gray or taupe depending on the furniture in the room. I think I have narrowed it down to Valspar's Woodlawn Colonial Gray.

Potato Wedges

I made these last night to go along with our grilled pork chops, and they were really good. I've made potato wedges before, but I didn't have a recipe memorized. This came up in a quick search, and they turned out great. Wells & Eric both really liked them, and let's be honest, I don't think I've ever met a potato I didn't like :) #unfortunately

Today's Weather!!!
This is not going to sound like much to some people, but it's huge for us right now! Today, the high is only 87 degrees with a humidity level of less than 50%! When we walked outside this morning, I considered going back up to change into something long-sleeved. That would be a dumb idea once we hit the afternoon temps, but, people, we are FINALLY (I hope) on our way to cooler weather! You know, now that it's practically October.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. I love those Taylor Farms salads so much!! They are fresh and taste great!

    1. I'll have to check out their other varieties for sure!

  2. Love that shift dress!! I feel the same way about Forever 21! While I admit when I do find something in there it's pretty great & I'm impressed with the quality for the price BUT the last time I was there I felt like I stepped back into my closet from 1996! There were cropped shirts, sunflower patterns, flannels and Doc Marten knock offs! What's up with that?
    That salad looks yummy! I'm going to have to look for it!

    1. Yes, definite 90s throwback happening!

  3. Way to go Grayer! He's going to be clapping all the time now I bet! :) That kale salad looks really delicious.

    1. He's doing it more and more, and I just can't get enough of the cuteness! :)


I'd love to hear from you!
