Friday Favorites

Happy Cinco De Mayo, Friends! 

Of course, I'm linking up today with some of my favorite bloggers, Erika, Narci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites! 

It has been a long, hard week around these parts, and I am SO STINKING GLAD it's Friday. 

First up, a few of my very favorite shots from my and Lane's engagement session.

My weekend is going to be busy but oh so fun! Lane and I are heading over to Memphis to see a couple of our FAVORITES play at the Beale Street Music Festival, The Drive By Truckers and Kings of Leon. Put me anywhere there's music playing and I'm a happy girl. 
The Truckers

Kings Of Leon

I'm completely obsessed with the little pink boxes of pure Joy my friend Kaytlin is whipping up over at Joyful Macarons. I ordered a box one day for my office and no joke, my coworkers have ordered at least 5 more dozen since that little happy I brought in. 

Finally, my friend Rebecca (also one of my bridesmaids!!) recently became a LipSense Distributor. I'm generally pretty skeptical of the weirdo Facebook makeup ladies, but I know Rebecca wouldn't ever endorse something that wasn't high quality, and I'm always down to support a friend's business *see above* so I decided when I did my first Blog Giveaway to celebrate actually blogging on schedule this week, I'd give away a Lipsense Kit. 

Anyway, I FINALLY broke down and tried LipSense after seeing her post the following photos without reapplying through the day. 

Y'all. The first day I wore my LipSense to work, we had a potluck. And someone made bone-in BBQ wings. I'm not gonna turn down wings, so it was really put to the test that day and I was sold. I'll let Rebecca tell a little more about it, and you can check her out at Ciao Besos. Her words are in Italics. 

LipSense by SeneGence is changing the lipstick world. It’s a liquid lip color that is smudge-proof/water-proof/kiss-proof, and can last up to 18 hours. It is lead, wax, paraben, and gluten free. LipSense comes in 37 different shades and 11 different glosses. Initially, you buy LipSense as a set. The Starter Collection includes the lip color of your choice, our Glossy Gloss, and the Ooops! Remover. Glosses are what give moisture to the lips and help seal the color to its maximum staying power. To learn more, contact Rebecca Abbud at

  1. I am OBSESSED with macarons!! But I've never actually had one. Hahaha. I think they are just so pretty and they look so good! And my cousin just started selling LipSense so I bought one from her and love it!

    Congrats on the new blog!!

    That Inspired Chick

    1. Isn't it the best?! Macarons are DELICIOUS. I'm sure there's somewhere in McKinney you can find one and I suggest you do it today. :)

  2. Love your blog name! My husband is an A; I see myself as a Z+! Wish I had a bright idea for Mom Day, but I have gorgeous flowers coming her way and we're having brunch on her patio. Feel free to send any good gifty ideas my way! :)

    1. Haha! I think if I'm being honest, I'm likely a Z minus. I try so hard, and fail so hard, too! My mom owned a flower shop for years and still works in one part time so flowers are out of the question...I did get her a pair of Kendra Scott Lee Drop Earrings for Christmas and she wears those regularly! I'd suggest that. :)

  3. Love your engagement pictures! So beautiful!

  4. I've always wanted to see Kings of Leon in concert! One of their songs was actually our first dance song at our wedding :)

  5. Love the blog name...totally relate to it...can't wait to read more:)

  6. Can't wait to read more!

  7. Girl, I LOVE Kings of Leon! Hubs and I have seen lots of live music, but we've never seen them! I need to see if they're going to be touring in our area.

    Thanks again for stopping by my blog last week! XO

    1. SO STINKING GOOD. Definitely try to check them out live. :)
