Friday Favorites

Can I get an AMEN! It's Friday and I just couldn't be any happier about it! Like most Friday's I'm linking up today with 3 of my favorite bloggers for Friday Favorites. If you haven't already you should really check out Andrea at Momfessionals, Erika at A Little Bit of Everything, and Narci at Grace and Love.

1) Martin Luther King, Jr. Day


There are many reasons why I get excited for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. First of all the obvious he was a pretty cool guy, who did a lot of amazing things for our country.

Secondly one of my favorite memories of my Grandpa was him always saying "I was born on the same day, same year as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.".  Can't wait to go to my Grandma's on Sunday where she will make Pineapple Upside Down cake in honor of my Grandpa because it was his favorite.

recipe here.
 And my last reason for Loving MLK Day is that I get a 3 day weekend! Working at a Credit Union has its perks, and one of them is definitely getting all holidays off!

Wouldn't be Friday without an Ecard ;)

2) Our Possible Vacation This Summer

I have this habit of getting an idea in my mind and just not being able to let it go. One of my Coworkers, Shelbie, mentioned that her and her Fiance might be going to Pigeon Forge Tennessee for their honeymoon. I started looking up the cabins and FELL IN LOVE. From there I planned a whole little vacation in my mind in August.
Just a sample of how amazing they are! view here.
 Now I say possible vacation because Seth isn't 100% on board yet, but I think it's gonna happen. The cabin above has 4 bedrooms and can sleep up to 13 people. We are looking to get some of best friends around to go and when you split the cost it is a super affordable vacation!

3) Having TWO Engaged Besties

If you think having one best friend engaged is fun try having 2, it's a BLAST.  I'm loving the texts I get about wedding plans and bridesmaid dresses! Check out my posts about these lovely ladies, here, here, and here. 

 4) My Favorite Picture I Took This Week

Hope you all have a great, safe, and relaxing weekend!!! 


  1. We are booking our anniversary trip to Pigeon Forge but finding a cabin isn't easy. I'm too picky! Have a lovely long weekend.

    1. Oh I know! there are so many different options. Thanks for stopping by :) Have a great weekend!

  2. LOVE this whole post. Especially the part where Seth isn't 100% on board. So funny! Love having you be a huge part of wedding planning! Happy Friday! Enjoy your 3 day weekend! :)

    1. haha I know I'm basically delusional when making plans. I'll plan a whole trip and then Seth is like ummm maybe not! oh well ;) Miss you already dear!

  3. I've been know to plan a vacation or two that never happened, too! But Seth does owe you a honeymoon/vacation! He would enjoy it once you're doing it; Matt always does!

  4. Love that you have such sweet memories! My son shares the same bday. And oh my goodness those cabins!! I'm going to have to check that out. Have a great 3day weekend
