friday favorites – september 5.

Another week is behind us … let’s jump right in!


Favorite New Home Decoration: My brother-in-law and sister-in-law got me this awesome pillow for my birthday and it’s now made its home comfy inside my library. Seriously, loving the texture of the material and it makes me giggle whenever I see it. Whooo hoooo! (And while Cali jumped up on the chair herself, I totally pulled a Ross when rapping to get her to look at me. HA!)

Favorite Relief Method: Am I the only one STRUGGLING with allergies right now? Man, I don’t remember them being this bad before! I have small spurts of great moments and then other moments of complete and utter sneezy, snotty, pink-eyey-looking hotness. Yikes. I am keeping my go-to’s well stocked and should have bought stock in Kleenex before August hit. Next year.

Favorite Pens: I love all the back to school aisles. Like, to the point where I can’t pass them up and just wander down touching all the new folders, binders and notebooks. I am a little jealous of all the kids who get to use their new supplies this week. I loved strategically picking out which color notebook I wanted for what class, there always was some sort of rational to the color system. Blue …. hmmm …. blue like water, water like H2O, H20 like elements, elements like a periodic table, ah blue is for chemistry. See, it makes total sense. Anyways, I couldn’t pass up the Target aisles without picking up a new pack of my all time favorite pens – Pilot G-2 – but NOT just any kind, it has to be the Ultra Fine 0.38 kind. They are so perfect. I needed them for Bible Study okay??


Favorite New Couple: Yes, we have had a few things going on in the celebrity world this last week or two (I am ignoring Brad and Angelina, I still miss him with Jennifer Aniston) – but this new couple takes the cake…my sister and her new boyf! Yay! Sorry men, this amazing lady is off the market. Ahhh, gotta love observing this first season of a relationship, so sweet.


Favorite Planning Sesh: Alright readers, another vacation is in the works – Savannah, Georgia! Every year I am blessed to be able to sneak away for a few days with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law for a girls trip and I can’t wait for this next one! We were able to meet last night and go through the travel books and scribble down ideas and itineraries, however, we still need your help! Do you have a restaurant or MUST-SEE place in Savannah? Send it my way!


Favorite Article: This. Go read it. I am so guilty of thinking really warm and fuzzy things about my friends, how much I appreciate them, value them, and grateful for them, but there can be such a communicate breakdown sometimes! Do they know how much I love them? Are my actions speaking what my brain is saying? Shauna nailed this post – READ!

Favorite IG Picture: I follow this account on Instagram and loved this photo and verse they shared this week. One of my faves!


Favorite Funnies: Here you go! I was in stitches preparing these for this post. Enjoy and have a great weekend friends!

    Love, love the pillow!

    My son has horrible allergies right now, especially in the morning – you are totally not alone!

    OMG – I totally love the Pilot G-2 pens, too. My point also has to be the super fine tip. I was miffed when my work quit buying that brand because it got too expensive and stuck me with the regular old BIC pens again. UGH

    Yay for Savannah! You’ll love it there – I hear it is so gorgeous. I want to go too someday. It’s only a few hundred miles away, so you’d think I would have already been. :)

    And the funnies – I totally can’t pic a fave. They all had me giggling out loud at my desk. I imagine I look quite the fool in my office all by myself laughing at my computer screen. Heh heh

      Boo! I am so sorry that your son is a fellow allergy sufferer. NO FUN! I hope he feels better soon! It’s been pretty cool here the last day or two and I feel like that has heped a little bit? (Maybe not but I am pretending).

      I always brought in my own pens at work!! The cheap ones just wouldn’t cut it for me. They are the best!!

      And I will let you know how it is! I have heard nothing but great things about it!!

      Anddddd lastly, I love that it made you laugh! I am sure your coworkers were curious, hahah! Love ya girl!

    I have a bag that says “I like big books and I cannot lie”!!! One of my favorites! Also, thank you for writing about that article. It’s definitely something to think on.

      A bag!! AHHH! Love! What a great tote that would be – awesome! And thanks for reading that recommended article! I share so that others can think about it and I am always happy to hear it inspired others thoughts too … xo!

    Love the pillow and yay for your sister!! So fun :) Love that!!! When are you going to Savannah? It’s such a cute little town – I don’t have any major suggestions, but if you love the beach, then go to the beach :) It’s fun to just walk around. There is a lot of touristy stuff to do like ‘ghost’ tours and stuff – we didn’t do any of it though!! So so so fun! OH PS ditch those meds and try oils for your allergies ;)

    • chels819 says:

      THE OILS! Oh my goodness, I hadn’t even thought about that!! I will need to get a supply for next year for sure. I think this year is hopeless and I am hoping now that it’s cooling down they get better. But great idea!!!

      I am excited about Savannah! We are going mid-October. We booked some trolley tours, a historical ghost tour (ohhh spooky!) a dinner cruise, a carriage ride, a spa visit … it is going to be SO MUCH FUN! Great to know about the beach too! Thanks girl! XO!
