Friday Favorites and Happenings

Sorry for not getting back to everyone's comments on Wednesdays post. I have been really slammed at work and I didn't have much time to do anything other than work hard. So I will get back to more of those today.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. About a month ago, we purchased a new leather collar for Walter. I went on Etsy to find something new since the other place I got his last collar out, I couldn't even find anymore. His collar lasted a long time. Well, I measured his neck and his old collar and picked my selections. I upgraded to have my phone number added on and when I got the collar, it was way too big. It hung about 4 to 6 inches too long. So I contacted the seller and he said he would fix the collar or remake one. Well, I don't think one needs to be remade, so he fixed it for us. That is amazing customer service. And now I am just waiting for it to arrive in the next couple days.

Here is an example of what I ordered:

TWO. Remember a few weeks ago, I also mentioned that I bought some new tank tops from Target? Well, after wearing them several times, I want to let you all know that they are amazing. I love the this tank top so much that I bought it in 3 more colors. I also said I wasn't sure if the sizing was right, but again, it was spot on. I love this tank. It is currently $8, but you can get two for $14. So worth it. 

And this tank is just as amazing. I bought it in more colors as well. The same deal is going on above.

THREE. While I was looking for my favorite American Eagle tanks (the ribbed ones with the buttons), I noticed they were sold out. But then a fellow blogger said that the Old Navy ones were pretty amazing. And they are on major sale too, $8. So I figured I would try one out and I got the one below. The color I got is sold out (the tan color), but I also want to pick up this blue one. I ordered online and picked up at my local store.

FOUR. This is super random, but I was ordering shoes lately for my mom and I noticed that her shoe size went up. And I realized that my shoe size went up in a lot of my shoes too, but my feet haven't gotten bigger. I asked my dad about this and he said his shoe size went up too. So I recently bought a new pair of black Converse Shorelines since my old ones tore in the back (after many years and lots of wear). I tried them on at the store and bought an 8 1/2. When I got home, I noticed my old ones were size 8. I put the bottoms of both shoes (the one ones and the old ones) together and they were the same exact length. When did shoe companies change their sizing? Anyone else experience this? 

FIVE. Weekly funnies.






I am linking up with A Little Bit of Everything and Becky. Have a great weekend!

  1. Walter's new collar looks like it will be super cute. I have been buying a lot of stuff from Target lately too. This week I was on a pajama kick. I have gone up a 1/2 size in a lot of shoes over the last 5-6 years. My mom has gone up a whole size. She thought it was because she had a foot problem for awhile and had to have two surgeries, but she is still wearing that new size even though the surgeries corrected her foot. So I think you might be on to something.

  4. What a pretty dog collar. What great customer service that they could fix it for you! My shoe size actually went down but that's definitely me and not the footwear industry.

    1. They really are. Target does have good clothes. Not sure if they will last forever, but I know the tanks usually do. I have some tanks from 6 years ago from there that I still wear all the time.

  8. I love my Converse Shorelines! They are so cute and comfy. I haven't noticed shoe sizes changing but I'll have to test that theory out the next time I buy shoes. Also, LOL to all the memes... Tiger King really does seem like a lifetime ago and it was only like 2 months. Crazy.

    1. I noticed it in the shorelines. So be careful if you have to replace them or need another color. My new black ones match the old black ones and the white ones I have too. Crazy. It seems like January was forever ago.

    1. I love getting the same item in multiple colors. It makes it easier to get ready. Ha. Walter's collar is really well made and beautiful...or I should say handsome.

  11. Girl, I totally get getting behind. Kind of how I feel right now. Lol. The beauty of trying to balance it all. You’re doing great!

    And I love those tanks. And your Friday funnies. Especially the one about business in the front end party in the back!

    1. Thank you so much. It is definitely hard to balance it all. The tanks are amazing. I have Target tanks that are 6 years old. They hold up so well. That is a good meme for sure.

  12. Oh my gosh, that gym meme hahaha I laughed way too hard at that (and I probably shouldn't have because it's actually sad). Also, LOVE that dog collar for Walter! Too cute!
