Friday Favorites #42

Hey Friday! Where ya' been hiding?
I don't know about y'all, but it's been a long week over here and I'm happy to see Friday.

Once again I'm linking up with ErikaNarci, and Andrea and sharing my favorites for the week.
~one~


I love opening my bible and finding a couple of different bookmarks the kids made me when they were little. They evoke such precious memories.
Helpful hint: I wish I had written the date on them so I would have know how old they were. One of the ones in my bible is laminated, and I wish this one was.

Sunday morning I put this picture on my Snapchat story❤️.

We love our Mexican food! When we lived in Richmond, VA there were TONS of great options when we had a hankering for it. When we moved to MN we found 2 Mexican restaurants and neither of them could hold a candle to our favs in VA.

When we found out we were moving to CA we thought "GREAT"...we'll have AWESOME choices for Mexican...WRONG!!! Here in Northern CA they have all these "taquerias" and none of them are very good. We have found one restaurant we do like and so we hit it up this week. I typically stick to the same thing but branched out and tried something different.

Here's the kicker...NOT ONE SINGLE Mexican restaurant has cheese dip/queso.
WHAT???? Yep, I'm not even kidding. I would never kid about something as serious as queso.

Chips and salsa for the win.


~three~

So y'all know I've declared my love for Halo Top ice cream.
They came out with a bunch of new flavors a couple of months ago and it's finally hit the freezer shelves at our stores. 


We went on a quest this week looking for them and only found one...Red Velvet.
Well just let me tell you that it did not disappoint. It's our new favorite.

I sent this to Katie one day this week and love it.


I don't want to see her or any of her friends (or Benny) settle for less than they deserve.

~five~

In case you missed yesterdays post, I talked about some great ideas for Valentine's Day.

It's not too early to plant that seed with a few ideas of things you'd like.

My bargain for the week...I wanted some pretty plaid pillows for Christmas time to go on our new sofa. Seeing as how I've told y'all I don't like to pay full price I decided to wait til' after Christmas and this week my patience paid off.


I went into Pottery Barn when I was at the mall to look around (and specifically check the sale section). They had quite a few things on clearance and these adorable pillow covers were among them. I walked out with 2 for $30. I really would have loved square ones, but hey, I'll take these for sure. I looked to see if they are available online, but I didn't find them, so check your local Pottery Barn if you're interested.

Before you go you might want to check out these bloggers I'm linking up with and see what's on their lists as well.


Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  1. Now all I can think about is Mexican food, and the nearest restaurant is almost 100 miles away! Haha! I guess I'll have to make some for lunch. That pillow is fun! It will be so cute when you get square ones to go with it. I like the different shapes and sizes together. And your Valentines gift guide looks great! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Jenny! Well I guess I should really quit complaining if you have to drive 100 miles for Mexican food. You have a great weekend too!!!

  2. I live in Richmond! I agree we do have so many great options for Mexican cravings, I can only imagine your withdrawals. I've been wanting to try Halo but can't find it anywhere!

    1. Hi Robyn!!! I lived there for 42 years...that makes me sound really old😝. I grew up on the southside, but then lived in Short Pump for 14 years after I got married until we started moving. Richmond is an AWESOME town. What's your favorite Mexican restaurant? We LOVED Casa Grande in Short Pump! Have you checked Whole Foods? Ours has Halo Top. You can also check the Halo Top website to find out who carries it. Have a great weekend and thanks for commenting!

  3. That is SO SAD about the queso!! That really surprises me!!

    I have heard about that Halo Top but haven't tried it yet. Maybe this is the weekend I'll buy some!

    1. Laura, Halo Top is practically a health food in my book. It's has protein and fiber so it's a win, win. It's a little pricey, but no worse than going out for ice cream😉 The whole queso thing is really beyond my comprehension. LOL Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I totally know what you mean about Mexican restaurants without queso! We moved from Texas to Chicago for a year and were missing queso like crazy!

  5. The plaid pillows are fabulous! I think I would die if there was no queso in town! If you like fajitas, we love this recipe from Pioneer Woman that we've modified: http://www.agalnamedal.com/2016/09/try-it-thursday-lime-chicken.html
    and this is my salsa recipe that is pretty darn good: http://www.agalnamedal.com/2016/07/try-it-thursday-homemade-salsa.html
