Friday Favorites #2

Happy Friday ya’ll!!! I missed “Friday Favorites” last week, but I’m back with it this week!!!! I was excited about how much you all enjoyed this last time. Let’s jump right in! (Recap post coming up this weekend- I’m pumped about this one!!)

  1. …. I was asked to be a bridesmaid!

Two of my very best friends are getting married this year! I received this gem in the mail last week! EEEK! I loveeee the cute ways to ask now-a-days! I just really hope with this new job I’m able to fly back to the other coast. The thought of not making their weddings puts a pit in my stomach. Anyways, what are some unique ways that you  have been asked? Also, Lynds- SO excited for you and Joseph!!!!! LOVE YOU!


This is the one I used when I asked my girlies because I don’t have that boss handwriting and crafting skills like Lyndsay!


2. Rapid Clear Neutrogena Spot Gel. This past couple weeks have been stressful, and my face has unfortunately concurred. This stuff has been my ride or die for years. It tackles the most stubborn blemishes over night!


3. BOOM. CHICKA. POP. I mention this quite a bit on the blog. This is one of my favorite snacks. I’ll be talking about it more in my update post because I took the cheddar cheese to the Super Bowl party! Everyone loved it and said it didn’t taste much different than regular cheese popcorn. The lightly salted is my go-to on the daily. I love a few cups before working out because it’s light but with the quick carbs!


4. Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones! I don’t usually go out of my way to eat gluten free, but there is something about these ice cream cones that I loveeeee. I believe one indulgence during the day is entirely necessary, and for the last half of a year my go-to treat has been an ice cream cone in the evening. I swear they taste even better than the traditional ones; the “cake” flavor in the cake cone stands out!


5. Matrix Oil. This stuff really, truly works. My hair is not a fan of the winter time- it gets dry and breaks so easy. Putting a little bit of this on the ends while in the shower or after while my hair is damp helps a ton with the breakage. Plus it smells insanely good. The bottle will last you well over a year!


6. Fancy Frances. Do you guys remember my wine glass that Rachel made me for Christmas?! I know I said I would share the information with ya’ll once she had a site up and running! She has a Facebook page now!!!! Go check it out!!! She even has the wine socks I posted in my last Friday Faves post. There are some great gift ideas there for Valentine’s Day too!

7. Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee Archer Farms K-Cups. I hate that K-cups aren’t usually recyclable. So when I saw that these were easy to recycle, I jumped on them. I took my first sip, and I’m never going back. The flavor is magnificent.


8. Miracles. I shared this video in my last recap post, but I have to share it again. So worth a couple minutes of your time!

9. Chris Lane. I went to his concert on Wednesday night with some girlfriends, and I have a new found love for his music. Such an electric show- great energy, incorporation of many different genres of music, engaged with the audience…. Unlike any concert I’ve been to. Highly recommend seeing this man perform live! This is currently my favorite song by him. It’s unique- country with a hit of pop!

10. Lady Fortunes Fortune Cookies. My mamma bear sent this to me after hearing about the job! Is this not the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?!? It is literally a GARGANTUAN fortune cookie that you can custom choose what the fortune says inside. She chose for me Psalms 37:4 -“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” <3 Still can’t get over it. Such a great, unique gift idea!

I am more behind on blogging than I’ve ever been, but I hope you all know how much you mean to me, and I can’t wait until I have a spare moment to catch up on everyone’s happenings!

xo <3

  1. That enormous fortune cookie was such a sweet gift! I’ve also never even imagined that you could buy them in that size! I guess you really do learn something new every day!

    1. Yayyyyy!!!!! You will NOT regret it. This has saved my life many times. One time being right before my wedding (yikes!). Haha. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Great post! I love the way your friend as you to be her bridesmaid! so crafty and talented! I could never create something like that! Also, those wine glasses are soooo cute! <3

    1. Thank you! And I know, right?!? She is SUPER creative, never ceases to amaze me the things she comes up with. She actually did my seating “window panes” at my wedding…. it was one of my favorite parts of the DIY decor! ( ) I just love her handwriting. And not to be a total saleswoman, but feel free to contact Rachel at Francy Frances to get a personalized wine glass 😉 Hehe. Have a great start to your week!!!!

  3. Hi Mackensie, I hope you are having a great weekend! I love the invitation that your friend sent you to be her bridesmaid. So Cute!!💐( a little bouquet for you!) In my day late nineties early 2000s we asked in person or over phone for long distance friends. I don’t think I will have future bridesmaid opportunities! I love all your favorites Dear, especially 5, 6 , 8 and 9. I am glad you got out to a concert, take care, Hugs, Terri xoxo.

    1. Awww thanks for the bouquet!!!!!! I loved her invite- she is just the sweetest! And the concert was an absolute blast!! Hope you have the MOST wonderful week, Terri! 🙂 xox

      1. You are welcome for the bouquet Dear!!! Anytime. In something unrelated maybe you will get a real bouquet this week , sometime around midweek😉🌷, huggs, Terri xoxo.

  4. Congrats! What a fun way to be asked! I am in one of my best friend’s weddings this year as well. She asked me in person and I totally started blubbering…It was the sweetest thing and made my day!
    Boom chicka pop is so yummy!
    I remember the day I found GF ice cream cones my world was made! And they really are yummy! Which back when I found them was such a rarity!
    Oh my gosh that fortune cookie looks ah-may-zing! What a sweet mom!
    Huge hugs. No worries sweets! I hope you have an amazing and relaxing weekend! <3

    1. Hahahah I totally feel you on the blubbering ! When I called her to give her my answer I did the SAME thing! What’s your favorite BCP flavor?!? The fortune cookie not only so cute but it tastes SO.GOOOD. Dj and I can’t get over how yummy it is! We have the caramel chocolate flavor. I’m thinking it would be such a fun party favor in the future! Hope you have a PERFECT start to your week, love!

    1. GIRL! I don’t know what’s going on, but your comments aren’t showing up on my main sidebar. BOOOO. I wonder if it’s just coincidence because I definitely see some of them? Either way- I’m keeping my eye out a little sharper now. And right?! Who knew a simple cookie could carry such Bible truth! LOL.

      1. Hahaha! Well I’m so glad that you saw it! Ps I had too shut off instagram as i couldn’t update other apps because i have no space inn my phone!

    1. She is incredibly creative! I admire her SO much! And right?!? We seriously have some amazingly kind-hearted, loving parents.. counting my blessings <3 Have a beautiful week, lovely! xoxo

  5. What awesome info! Mack, you are such a sweetheart. Your blog is looking so good, and you really brighten my day. Thanks for expressing your awesomeness. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Love and blessings – Debbie ps – I hope you and DJ have a wonderful V-Day.

    1. THANK YOU so much, Debbie!!!! <3 This was INCREDIBLY encouraging! You brighten my day!!!!! I hope you have a beautiful V-day too and also have a wonderful week too <3 Thank you for stopping by 🙂

  6. YAY to being a bridesmaid!!! That was me last year two of my best girl friends who happened to be sisters were also getting married back to back- one being in August and the other Sept! It was a busy busy time but so much fun. But you’re so right I’ve been seeing all over facebook different posts of girls getting asked to be bridesmaids! The pressure to be creative is on these days lol Also I feel like all the rage is to have a hashtag wedding now too….so much to keep up with. Your mom is awesome, that fortune cookie with the custom fortune, ugh- totally melts my heart. Such a positive reinforcement! Still soooo excited for you! Also, I’ve been doing some extensive research on some new zit cream (toothpaste is good but not good enough lol)…. But I should’ve known neutragena was a winner, I use so many of their skin care products. Boom Chicka Pop is one of my favorite brands, I always snag a bag when I go to Marshalls or TJ Maxx, they always have them there!! But I always go with the cheddar cheese….me and my love for cheese! Hope you had a good weekend (off to read your next post….catching up! 🙂 ) xoxo

    xo, JJ

    1. Ah I bet that was a BUSY time for you! Those were super back to back! How fun though- but yes the pressure is NUTS! It’s easy to get caught up in it all too, but at the end of the day it’s not about any of that (as fun as it is!) . Darn Pinterest setting standards so high hahahah. Dj and I didn’t have a super creative hashtag… but after the wedding we said we should have done “old mack Donald had a wedding” 😂(the “d” in dj stands for Donald). The neutrogena cream is a miracle worker for real! BCP- Their cheddar cheese is such a winner! I’m so sorry I’m late to commenting on these but I hope your week has been perfect and your weekend is even better! 💕💕💕💕💕💕
