FRIDAY FAVORITES....SPARKLE EDITION


This is going to be super short, sweet and sparkly today as I am on my way to see a college boy. I apologize now if I do not get to comments today but the campus is calling. Thank goodness most of the 15 inches of snow on the ground has melted. I felt a little sparkle this week showing you the Glam Bath Reveal so I thought I'd continue on with that theme! 

1. Pineapple Flip Flops
My dear friend Kellyann found these at her TJ Maxx in Florida. Be still my golden pineapple! I’ll be scoping every TJ Maxx from here to Bloomington looking for these puppies, lol. I think my lil sis Amanda needs them too.


2. First Best Friend has a BIRTHDAY
I’ve mentioned him before but my first BFF was a boy and his name was Ryan! We had some grand times and continued to be friends through adulthood. He had a sparkly personality, was the guy “BEST DRESSED” to my award our Senior year and was a mighty talented singer! Haven’t seen him in a while but always remember his birthday.


3. Favorite New Purse
I LOVE this new grey crossbody Purse from Sole Society. Comes in Tan also and it is the perfect size.
BUY HERE

4. SPARKLE Pillow
So in love with this Pillow! I just got it this Wednesday in the kids bedding section at Target, $16!!! It is perfect for my pink Bench. The back of it is a pale pink like the piping and it's everything my office area is: Gold, grey and pink and sparkly!! LOVE!

5. Misc. Fun
Talk about a dagger. This icicle was longer than me. It finally fell and melted yesterday but good thing it was only ground below that monster.


 I have been bringing fresh flowers home from our local grocery every week as they have had the best deals on them. When just a few are dying, I'll mix in some more fresh to get the longest life out of them

We closed on the old house yesterday and this is what I wore. It was a dreary day with a blanket of fog the entire day so wanted to be cozy. LOVE these Dreamers Sweaters so much, I have in both colors. Super Soft!

Grace and Lace Top Extender HERE

I always say my parents were my first Valentine’s and to this day, my mom and I still exchange little tokens of love. The roses Mr. Nine got looks so pretty by the heart bag.


Hope your weekend Sparkles with Smiles and LOVE!!

  21. Congrats on closing on the house, Andrea! It's always wonderful to put that behind you so you can totally focus on your dream home. And the way you're decorating it, it certainly looks like a dream! We don't usually celebrate Valentine's Day but hubby actually bought me a red rose this year YAY!! I was totally taken by surprise lol.
    Have a wonderful weekend, gorgeous lady!
