Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Everyone!!! 

The weekend is finally here!!! I am kicking off the excitement with another link-up of Friday Favorites with some of my favorite bloggers. Check out Andrea's blog called MomfessionalsErika's blog called A Little Bit of Everything, and Narci's blog called Grace and Love. Their blogs are so inspiring and they are a must read! 

#1. I said "YES" to my wedding dress!! 
I am sooooo relieved and full of excitement that I FINALLY found the dress that I am going to marry my sweet David in. Wedding dress shopping has been my favorite part of the wedding planning process thus far and I am so happy I was able to experience it with three of my favorite ladies.

Me with my mom, Grandma, and Aunt Michelle.

#2. Red Velvet Oreos are an obvious favorite.

These presumably tasty little bites of heaven come out in store on February 2nd. I will be busting through the grocery store doors to purchase as many boxes of these guys that my checking account will allow because they are only being sold for a limited time.
Fun fact for you all: This is the first time since 2004 with the Golden Oreo that the brand is featuring a new cookie flavor and color.

I am still in awe that Oreo made this cookies for me & apparently so is my grandma ;)

If Red Velvet Oreos aren't for you check out these other tasty options: this real life? I hope not.

In all honesty though, I could eat a few of those Peanut Butter Oreos.

And naturally, these Cookies and Cream Oreos are calling my name as well.

#3. My sweet momma is my favorite. 
This week my mom had surgery on her vocal chords and she can't talk for 14 days. She is literally such a trooper with the most positive attitude. I would be going banana ham sandwich crazy, but she is more patient and sweet as ever.

She keeps snap chatting me with pictures of her whiteboard (what she has to use for the next two weeks to communicate with everyone) and her little bell (what she uses to get my dad's attention; which I am sure he is just loving so much ;)) She is adorable. 

So in honor of how much I love my mom and appreciate her, here are a few of my FAVORITE pictures of us.

#4. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 is my favorite Bible verse this week.
This verse has provided me with lots of encouragement, accountability and happiness this week. 

#5. My Tom Wedges are my favorites. 
Folks, Tom wedges have been on my wish list since as long as I could write. At first glance I knew it was true love and totally meant to be. My sweet sister made my dreams come true and bought me a pair for Christmas. She's always been my favorite ;)

All joking aside, these booties are so exceptionally comfortable and practical and are totally worth the $88.95 splurge. 

I have this black pair of booties and love how they go with literally everything. Tom's currently has out two other pair of winter wedge booties as well if black isn't your preference...

There are these adorable Taupe wedge options...

and these precious Chestnut wedge options. I love the look of these!

Unfortunately I haven't snapped any pictures of outfits that I have paired with my wedges, but when all else fails Pinterest always comes in handy. Here are some of my favorite outfit inspirations that will compliment the Tom wedges perfectly:
