FRIDAY FAVORITES...THAT'S IT APRIL

Happy Fabulous Friday friends. Today marks the annual Picking Posies outting with my sweet mom where we go to about every area greenhouse to gather our flowers for the season and come home and plant, plant. plant. With the next 2 months being crazy busy for me with A Garage Sale, Proms and Kids graduating, I am scaling back a tad. Well, I say that until I get there and burst with excitement and my green thumb starts calling. I hope your last weekend of April is full of green, sunshine and so much fun!!

1. My Featured Lady...
Make sure you head over to The Blended Blog to see my piece on my dear Friend LAURA. I'm excited that my first feature is about this incredible beauty! 

2. Sweet Tooth
Why oh why was born with such sweet tooth? However, I was certainly happy to indulge that sweet tooth this week for two awesome goodies. See that's the thing, it has to be like the best pie or the best cookie for me to indulge and these were two of the BEST...so I'll add a few more crunches and a few more (try 1000's) steps
Look at this lucious Key Lime Pie mom brought me
(you may remember she makes one for me every year on my birthday but was gone this year so Yep, it was worth the wait!!)
Mom's Key Lime Pie Recipe HERE

And Let's Not forget the toffee laden goodness of 
Just Right Chocolate Chip Cookies from Tuesday's  Post



3. Ripped Jeans
I have a couple pairs of jeans with rips here and there but these are my first pair to really be ripped up. Sweet Emily from Martinis & Bikinis featured her love of these mid-rise Jeggings from Express and I am in love too. Jazzed them up for the first night of wear with a blazer and Barcelona Cami, both from Express..

Other ripped up goodness




4. Pineapple Doormat 
How cute is this triple pineapple doormat!! $12.99 from Target HERE


5. Grad Dress HELP.....
Really friends, I seriously need your help. All 6 of these dresses may have went home with me because I cannot for the life of me decide which one to wear to my son's graduation...I am not good at even dressing room selfies but Help a sista out and tell  me your favorite or favs as I may need a couple for parties, awards nights, etc...
 Stripped                         Polka Dot                       Neon
Coral Lace                     Cobalt                         Floral

  10. Loving the pineapple doormat! I am in need of a new one so I think I may be heading over to Target to see what I can find! I say either the striped dress or neon dress (or keep this one for a fun dinner/trip??) for your sons graduation. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  13. First off, LOVE your outfit with the distressed jeans!!! You look amazing!! Moving on... haha. I love the cobalt blue dress and the floral dress. Both of them look great on you even though it's just a dressing room selfie. :-) That key lime pie also looks so delicious. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!! :-)

  14. OMG that doormat is adorable!!! Now I may have to go and get that, at least for our back deck! I love it!!! The ripped jeans look I love, I just can't seem to make myself buy a pair. Maybe one day! And yes to the key lime pie. Gimme gimme!! Have a great weekend!!!!

  15. Well I'm going to break from the rest, I love the polka dot dress. I guess for me I think graduations are more formal, serious events, they aren't cocktail parties.(although cocktails may be included in the parties after/around) That dress is classy, respectful, yet fun. The others are fun and flirty (especially the striped one which is my 2nd choice) but I think the polka dress would put you in the classy mom category. Good luck with your choice.

  16. Thanks so much for the shout-out, Sista! I left you a comment about BIG HAIR on The Blended Blog. Have I told you lately that you're the best!? Well, you are! As for dresses, I'm liking the striped and the cobalt. If that neckline is what I think it is on the cobalt, I think you should totally go for it because it will show off one of your best features! Can't wait to read about which one you decide on! Have an awesome weekend. You and your precious mom plant some flowers for me because if I even TOUCH a plant, it will surely die! xoxo

  24. I feel you on the sweet tooth...I hate it and it doesn't help that chocolate is like a drug! You can't have just a piece...you gotta have it all! I'm excited to try the cookie recipe soon...I pinned it and can't wait to whip some up! Love those ripped jeans, Andrea!!
    Oh gosh...all of those dressed look fabulous on you...but I would say for graduation, perhaps the coral lace or cobalt dress? And for a party the neon dress would be fun! Can't wait to see what you go with!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, gorgeous!

  27. Where did you get that gorgeous polka dot dress! I need that right now in my closet! Pick that one a hundred times over! I think I like the top row of dress best, any one of them would be great for summer events! And yay for your first feature, headed off over there to check her out!

  28. The striped dress hands down wins IMHO for graduation dress! I LOVE key lime pie and made my husband get me one at this BBQ place here that also has a dessert shop on my birthday last August. I may need another one for my birthday this year!

  29. Definitely not the coral lace or the neon. I would go for striped, polka dot, or floral, in that order.

  30. I love the doormat! I'm sure it makes you smile every time you enter the house!

    All the dresses are great! I think I like the polka dot dress and the coral lace one best.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Andrea!

  32. What a fun annual tradition to keep up! We plan on doing some landscaping and planting this weekend but my green thumb has never been on point. LOVE the jeans on you!!! Aren't they so comfortable. I just love that distressed look and I love how you dressed it up with a blazer. Amazing outfit!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ooh striped or floral dress (although you do no wrong in anything you put on!). Key lime pie is my faaaaavorite! Your mama's recipe would be amazing I feel quite confident. Have so much fun with the flower shopping and planting!

  34. I love all the dresses too, but my vote is for either the coral lace or the cobalt ones.. those colors are just so pretty! I was blessed/cursed with a BIG sweet tooth too and now that I'm pregnant it's getting pretty ridiculous. Have a great weekend Andrea!

  37. I don't have too much of a sweet tooth but I make up for it with incessant cravings of nachos and fries! Ugh, the struggle is real. LOVE those jeans, you look great!

  38. All of those dresses are so pretty but I really love the lace and the neon dresses! Desserts are always so good, and oh my goodness, that key lime pie your mom made looks so delicious! I wouldn't have been able to turn down 1 or 3 slices! I hope you're having a fantastic Friday!

  39. I'm just getting back into blogging after a 3 year hiatus & Laura sent me over. Isn't she the best Bloggy friend ever!?! Lovin your blog & the ripped jeans! I have the boyfriend cut from American Eagle & they are so comfortable!!! I worry about pulling them off at my age but they feel so good who cares! As for the dresses, I like the polka dot one for graduation & the neon for a party, it really sets off your tan! Can't wait to read more!

  40. Hmmmm I really love the floral and the cobalt dresses for graduation type events. The striped dress is fun for a Saturday out or something. The neon dress is summer event perfection if you have a BBQ or something coming up. I really REALLY want key lime pie now, so umm I am blaming any future binge all on you. Hope you have a great weekend!!!!

  41. These are really awesome favorites! I love those baked goodies! =)

  43. Good morning beautiful blog buddy! I was born with a set of sweet teeth too and sadly I'm going to calm those things down over the month of May - hello sugar detox. I'm scared! Key Lime Pie is my weakness! Actually Key Lime anything! That door mat - swoon! And girl those dresses! My favorites are the top three!!! Let me send you my address and you can just let me borrow them?!?! Love you bunches! Have a great weekend!

  44. I really love the first two dresses. I can totally understand buying all the dresses. Now you'll at least have more for other occasions!

  47. I personally love the Striped the best. Floral would be second. Coral Lace for a more upscale event and the Polka Dot would be cute for a cookout. I don't care for the neon or cobalt.
    Love the ripped jeans. And a big thank you for the recipes. Yummmm!

  52. You picked the best choice with the polka dots for the occasion. Years from now when you look at the pictures the classic look will still be in style and you look so nice in it too.
