Friday Favorites

5 Things on Friday {2.12.16}


  1. Who knew Walmart had such fun jewelry? I saw that pearl necklace on Instagram and dashed into the nearest Walmart to buy it. I hate Walmart, so you know I really wanted that necklace. As a sweet treat, I found an awesome J. Crew knockoff piece on clearance for $2!
  2. My hubby had work in East Tennessee last Saturday, so I headed up there with him and got to spend some time with my family! We ate supper at one of my favorite restaurants – their Cheddars is seriously the best Cheddars of all the Cheddars!
  3. I got another great Target beauty box this week! Those things are SUCH a deal at $7! I knew I had to have it when I saw this box included the L’Oreal Boost It Air Blown Texture Mist. So far I’m in love – I use it in place of mousse and it gives my fine, slippery hair great texture! FYI – I follow All Things Target on Instagram and she always posts as soon as a new box is available! 
  4. Somehow I got a free 2-week trial of XM Radio the last time I had my oil changed. I have always loved country music, but I think  the stuff that came out from 1999-2010 is my favorite…and the Y2K Country channel on XM Radio is my jam! I would consider paying for the subscription just for that channel. Ha!
  5. It’s Friday! I spent the first 5 minutes (a very crucial part of the day) of Thursday thinking it was Friday, and was sufficiently bummed when I realized it wasn’t yet the weekend. It wasn’t a bad week, but it was a long one, and I’m glad it’s really and truly Friday!

That’s it for me! Have a lovely weekend!

    1. You should definitely grab the next Target box! I don’t have an affiliate link (thanks for asking though!), I’m not sure Target does those with that box. When I see the box is available, I just go to Target’s website, search “beauty box” and it comes right up.


  1. I have been really impressed with Wal-Mart accessories for a few years now. They clearance things out regularly and you can often find great deals for $1, $3 and $5. I picked up several Christmas gifts there this year and would love to have that pearl necklace 🙂 Glad you got to visit with your family this week & hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend.


  2. Girl, I keep telling you that you should not give Walmart the side eye!! I too have purchased jewelry there. I got a cute turquoise necklace for $10, wore it to New Mexico and everyone kept asking me where I purchased it. Now that is AMAZING!! One of my favorite skirts from last summer was a $10 Walmart find. If they have them again this year I am buying several.


  3. The last time I was in old Wally World I saw those necklaces – but not that one! The ones I saw I could not pull off. Go girl on the good find! Target….my soul store. Girl, I wish I could say I like Cheddar’s but I think it is disgusting (probably because the one and only time I went there I got food poisoning!) Have a terrific weekend! It was great getting to know you a bit better on the hang out last night!!! xo Amanda


    1. I totally know what you mean about Cheddars! We love the one in Tennessee and were thrilled when we got a Cheddars here in town…but the food at that one is AWFUL. I don’t know what it is about the TN restaurant, but it’s amazing. Food poisoning is the worst and I don’t blame you for hating Cheddars! Bless your heart. Thanks for joining us on the hangout – I always love them too!


  4. Happy Friday, Whitney!! (…and hooray that TODAY actually IS Friday! ;)) I cannot get over how cute those necklaces are!! What a bargain you scored on those!! So glad Paul’s work travel allowed you some sweet time with your family last weekend! Hope the upcoming weekend is every bit as wonderful for you!
