Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, y'all! Even during the summertime, I can't help but be excited about Friday and what each weekend will bring. Friday Favorites are a way to officially start off my weekend right & let me show off a few of my favorite things. . .

Favorite Etsy Find: 

Graduation Gift | Promotion Gift | Friend Gift | Goodbye Gift | While you're out there... Custom Hand Stamped Cuff Bracelet by Korena Loves

While perusing Etsy this week, searching for graduation gifts for my very best friend who gets her BSN tonight, I stumbled upon several other things (other than what I got her!) that I thought would make beautiful gifts for the graduate in your life. This bangle from KorenaLoves is so adorable. The inside reads, "While you're out there getting where you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you." 

Favorite Treats:  

Pecan Pie Bars. Favorite go- to dessert for parties and potlucks because it's baked in a 13x9 pan instead of a 9" pie pan.  It's also the first dessert to disappear! Sooo goood!

I've been looking for something sweet to make and we have a whole jar of Golden Eagle syrup just sitting in our fridge begging to be used in pecan pie (& Golden Eagle is an Alabama tradition, if you didn't know!)
This recipe came from the blog Roots, Boots, & Rambles and I cannot wait to try it out this weekend!

Favorite Quote:

You can't rush something you want to last forever

With all of the engagements & weddings happening around me, it's easy to get caught up in the wedding fever. But, I have to remind myself sometimes that I have forever to be with C, so there's no need to rush anything. I'm learning to enjoy the here and now.

Favorite Look:

Bell Sleeve

This outfit is from the blog Covering The Bases and I have to say...I'm mildly obsessed with her blog. 
This outfit is something that I can see being carried from the heavy, hot August weather here down south, all the way into early fall by switching out the shorts for skinny jeans and boots. And let's just talk about this top, it would be perfect for Auburn games on the Plains too! 
Buy the top here for only $34!

Favorite Photograph:

Love this shot

I know in my favorite quote above, we just talked about slowing down, enjoying the process, and not rushing what is meant to last forever. But this photo isn't really about being married. It's about those girls that are by your side. I'm so blessed to say that in the past few years, I'm truly blessed to have become best friends with the girls that will stand by my side on my big day. I love the emotion that this picture brings. 
I couldn't find the original photography page and it's not watermarked, so I haven't given credit (if you know who it belongs to please comment below & I'll give credit!)

I hope you enjoyed my Friday Favorites, now tell me...what are your favorites?

xoxo, SS
