Friday Favorites

Today started out with me waking up at 5am, realizing I am late and jumping out of bed (actually it was the couch because I couldn't sleep last night so I moved to another location hoping that it would help me to sleep, ever do that?). I got dressed, not even sure if I brushed my hair, and then rushed into Mini Fox's room to feed her before I left. Note: I need to leave the house by 5:08, and it takes Mini Fox about 3 minutes to do the math. So I go in to feed her, and I usually can feed her for 2-3 minutes, but after two minutes I pop her off and put her back down and she starts screaming and searching for me. Of COURSE the day I am late she wants more. I made it to my carpool at 5:16, go me. So I really need to think about my favorites instead of thinking about how tired I am. So here are my Friday Favorites:


I got to work, put the headphones on, turned the iPod on and this song comes can I not get in a better mood after listening to this? You know you're sort of dancing in your chair.


The love my kids have for each other, constantly kissing each other, melts my heart.


I just bought this pajama set for Mini Fox and I LOVE it, I can hardly stand it, ruffle cuffs? Yes please! And the best part, it was only $5.97! ON mega clearance at Babies R Us.


This song. I heard it in my Kettle Bell Class last week and on Monday I walked up to the instructor after she was done teach a completely different class and asked her if she could tell me the name of a song that she played last week. She said oh I put all of the songs in one song that's an hour long, I don't think I'll be able to find it...I told her well it was during the part when we did this (then I showed her what we were doing in the class) and she's like, I actually know what song you're talking about! And she found it for me, and I sort of love her for it...and it's been playing on repeat ever since.


Nordstroms Anniversary sale. I'm sure everyone has jumped on that band wagon...I've bought way too much, seriously everyday I find something new that I want. So many packages arriving at my door. I keep telling myself, I probably won't keep it, so I'll just put it in my cart just to see, and guessed it, I've only wanted to return 1 thing! Oops.

Here's what I've gotten so far and am going to keep:
Mixed Media Tunic 
This is the MUST HAVE SHIRT according to Sheaffer from Pinterest Told Me To

I bought the petite and still had to size down and it's a perfect fit.

Peacoat -In White

Unfortunately they are all out, there is only Black Large left, darn. But if they do come back, I got a size medium and it's perfect. Although I'll probably wear this once because it never really gets cold here.

Leopard Scarf 

I've been wanting a leopard scarf, but just didn't want to spend that much, and I saw this one, but it was $20, and I just didn't know if I liked it enough to spend $20, but now it's only $12.90, I thought why not, and I absolutely love, love, love it, Mr. even loves it and pairing it with my white jacket from above, well it's to die for. I might just have to take a picture for you guys, just cause I can't wait to show you, I'm willing to suffer in the 95 ° heat for the sake of fashion.

Kate Spade Studs 

I admit, I bought three pairs of these. I bought the green (below), pink and the clear ones, although those last two are going to be gifts, so shhhhh, don't tell anyone. For $24.90, I think it's an awesome deal and some lady in your life is going to squeal with delight when she opens it.

And then of course these are the things I'm still waiting for...tapping fingers impatiently.

Black Bootie

Again a suggestion from Sheaffer, I haven't gotten them yet, but Vanessa bought them, and they look pretty cute on her feet, so I figured I NEEDED them too.

Lace Trim Tunic

Andrea from Momfessional suggested this one, I thought she got it and showed us (perhaps it was on her IG account?) anyway, it was super cute, so I decided to give it a whirl.

Grey and Black Striped Tunic 

Another PTMT pick (seriously, I need help)

Blue Tunic

This one I actually picked out on my own, yay me, I love the zipper shoulder, I really hope it fits/looks good when I get it.

The sale doesn't end til next weekend, so there is plenty more time for me to shop, in all honestly there are several things in my Nordies shopping cart that are just screaming for me to hit submit. I'll at least wait till after lunch to do so. See that restraint there?

So spill, what did you guys get? Is there something I should add to my cart before I hit submit? Okay even if I do, I'll still probably get it, who are we kidding?

Linking up with the Farmer's Wife and September Farm and for Friday Favorites with Andrea, Erika and Narci! 


  1. I was successfully ignoring the Nordstrom sale until THIS POST. YOU! I love everything in it, thanks. I mean, thanks! Have a great weekend!

  2. Love your sale picks!! Does the must have shirt wrinkle easily?

  3. Waking up at 5 was late for you?!? What time do you normally wake up? How much sleep do you get each night?

  4. Oh my gosh girl... you have EARLY mornings! Yuck!
    I haven't really looked at Nordstrom's site (on purpose) but girl, you are SO TEMPTING ME! You scored some cuuuuuuute stuff!

  5. Love Daughtry! Thanks for sharing! Love your Nordstrom sale finds! I picked up that peacoat in red, but have decided to return it. It fits well in the body, but I can hardly move the arms above my head. That won't work with an active little guy! Must keep looking! Glad you got the booties! They really are awesome and I can't wait to wear them! I wanted that scarf and earrings too, but I had to stop somewhere! lol!
