Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

I have been a little bit of slacker with Friday Favorites in 2017 (cough*one post* cough). I am excited to get back on the blogging wagon and share my current favorites!

Today, Im linking up with Andrea, Erika Narci to share my favorites.


It has been so warm this Spring. We have loved exploring hiking trails around our town. I have lived my whole life here and still have so many new places to discover. Asheville is the best!


Yesterday, we were 1 month away! Eek! I have so many emotions about the upcoming wedding... You know the butterflies in your stomach from excitement... yeah that's me. It's my absolute favorite thing that I get to marry my best friend in 29 days!

Easter 2017


As part of my New Years Resolution, I wanted to invest more time in God's Word. I did really good through January-February, but March hit me pretty tough. I kept coming up with excuses to do other things. Well in April, I hopped back up on the wagon. It has been a blessing. On April 27th, I finished my last task of graduate school. I was worried (surprise) about it would go, I got up and read my devotional. I don't know if you can see it but it said: You are troubled by fear of failure, but My Love for you will never fail. Wow. It hit my anxiety ridden heart and eased my fears. I urge you friends, if you need a devotional,  I recommend the Jesus Calling Series. 


I have recently started designing invitations. I did my wedding invitations and a baby shower recently. I am so excited to have a creative outlet! Right now I am just designing for close friends, but I am praying about opening an Etsy Shoppe. 


The ladies in this picture are my favorites. My tribe is made up of old friends from pre-school and new ones from college. I am blessed to have these rockstars to inspire me. I am forever encouraged by their humor & love! Y'all are the best! 


I have probably professed my love for all things Rae Dunn. I stopped in TJ Maxx this week and found the adorable little planters. I can't wait plant some herbs in them Summer! 

I hope y'all have had a great week!

What's Up Wednesday: April Edition

Today, I am linking up with some of my favorite bloggers:  ShayMel and Shaeffer for What's Up Wednesday

1. What I'm Eating

 This past weekend we went to Charlotte for my Bacherlorette weekend. My sweet sister did a fantastic job planning the whole deal. She also is hands down the best at picking food places! This grilled cheese was featured on Diners, Drive ins & Dives. 

This plate is from King's Kitchen, a non-profit restaurant in Uptown. It was as delicious as it looks. I could easily make the two hour drive from Asheville to Charlotte justifiable for this food! 

2. What I'm Reminiscing about: 

My bridal shower was last month. I can't believe we are in the middle of wedding things! My favorite lady through me a Kate Spade bridal shower at the Biltmore Estate. It truly was breathtakingly gorgeous! 

3.What I'm loving

I am obsessing over the Farmhouse Pillows from Amazon. I have several on order for our new house! Check out the deals in my Farmhouse Pillow Post

4. What I've been up too:

I mentioned above about Bachelorette Weekend. Y'all. These ladies fill my bucket. They are so inspiring and make me laugh so hard. 

5.What I'm dreading: 

Not much to dread! Schools almost out, and it's wedding month!

6. What I'm working on:

A lot of my wedding is DIY, so I am working on a few projects before the big day

7. What I'm Excited about:

I can't wait for our Honeymoon in Aruba! Bring on the SUNSHINE!

8. What I'm Reading/Watching:

I have been obsessed with this show! And I just heard that they have been approved for a 5th season! This show is so heartwarming & the perfect chick flick series!

9. What I'm listening to:

Still on the Apple Music Trend :) What are your favorite stations??

10. What I'm Wearing:

I am loving this off the shoulder pinstripe top. It was 80+ degrees in Charlotte this weekend so I paired it with white shorts & Toms. To dress it up, just add white skinnies & a cute peep toe!

11. What I'm doing this weekend:

We are packing up to MOVE! I can't wait to get all of the stuff out of my room (it's starting to look like an episode of hoarders) and into our new house! 

12. What I'm looking forward to next month: 

May is Wedding Month! I can't wait to marry my best friend. I'm also ready for the whole planning shenanigans to be over. I'm so tired of making decisions. I mean if your indecisive like me, it's torture! 

13. What else is new?

Not much!

Bonus: What's your favorite spring/summer shoe? 

Toms Lexie Sandal. This sandal is one I reach for over and over. I love the support the ankle strap provides & the footbed is cushy! It's so comfortable! ( I'm actually wearing them in the picture with the off the shoulder top)
