Friday Favorites

Hey, y’all!! It’s Friday, and we are hosting Friday Favorites with my girls, Erika and Andrea!!  Here are a few of my favorites from this week!  Today, we are keeping it short and sweet!🙂

Sunrise from my Bedroom Window 


On Wednesday morning, I was opening my curtains and saw the best sunrise out our bedroom window!  This view out our back windows never gets old, and is definitely my favorite!


I mentioned earlier this week that I am diving into this book, and it is turning out to be such a great read.   Ladies, if you need a encouraging read, I highly recommend this one!img_4414-1

You will be so blessed by her words!

This outfit

Sometimes I go to the mall with lunch and returns in mind, but I end up in here also.

Ha!  Does that happen to anyone else?   I sure hope that I am not the only one!   PS-You can find my outfit here:

TopJeansScarf (this is the same scarf just a different pattern, and I LOVE it!)-Booties

And I grabbed a quick shot of me in the shirt I wore to the mall.  We talked about this lace top yesterday, and here it is on!🙂


I got a ton of compliments on this top while I was out, and I love that it fits comfortably without being scratchy!  Perfect!

There we go!  Time to zoom on into the weekend!  We have some fun planned, and I can’t wait! Don’t forget to link up below!  Happy Friday, y’all! XOXO Narci

Fashion Thursday

Hey, y’all!! It’s Fashion Thursday!  Once a week, I share my favorite fashion picks!  This week, I remembered to take a few pictures while I was out and about as well!

This first dress is really cute on!

 I love it for a date night as a dress and a tunic for everyday! :) img_4484-1

A few of you asked about these earrings, and they are the Chantilly Lace Earrings!  You can find them here!🙂

I am a big fan of the cold shoulder trend, and I love this cute top for Fall!  I took this picture after I’d been out all day, but it was still going strong! :) img_4583

This top came home with me too, and it is super cute on as well!  Love!


And, this dress is SO CUTE ON!!   I forgot to take a picture, but it is so flattering and fun!50722a2385a5d121a60f6eda4f417cf2_best

What’s happening here

What’s happening here? Just a little bit of Middle school football…

And soccer Saturday.  

Presley is enjoying hanging out with her girlfriends on Saturdays, but she’s decided to stick with cheer after the season is over. I actually was hoping she’d fall in love with soccer since it’s way less dangerous than cheer, but that girl loves to tumble.🙂

What’s happening here?  Just a little bit of date night…

And sweet morning pictures

I’m digging deep into this book and enjoying it. 

Plus, I saw this on Facebook and loved it. We’re desperately seeking Fall here in Texas. 

What’s happening in your neck of the woods? Sound off in the comments! Happy Wednesday, y’all!! 

See you here tomorrow for our Fashion Thursday! Xo Narci 

Show and Tell Tuesday

Hey, y’all!  Today, we are linking up with Andrea for her super fun Show and Tell Tuesdays!show-and-tell-ig-graphic

Twice a month, we show and tell about a different topic!  This month, we are sharing our quirks, nicknames, and phobias!

What can I say?  My people do quirky/crazy  really well?😉


So, here we go!

My #1 Phobia 

Spiders don’t scare me, give me a big group of people all day long, but please LORD do not have me cross an overpass or a bridge over water.  I am not made to do these sorts of things and keep from losing my cool.


In fact, I’m wheezing into a brown paper bag by just LOOKING at these pictures.


I am not sure if flying off one of these bridges is a rational fear, but that hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on these babies on the off chance that it does happen.😉


Or driving WAY TOO SLOWLY when I am crossing one of two!  People, I am not leaving this one to chance! haha!

I am a tiny bit oblivious

Most people might say that I am really laid back which is true!  I, also, think “laid back” might be a really nice way of saying that I am pretty much oblivious to everything that is going on around me. haha! Case in point.


Stuff like this just happens to me!   A tire stuck in a drainage ditch during what was supposed to be a simple three point turn, yes ma’am!   Walking around with my contacts in the wrong (and opposite) eyes for 9 months straight: I’ve been there!   Leave my back hatch open while at the pool for 2 hours, it’s happened… TWICE!   The good news is that I always have a good story to tell at my own expense.😉

Just a regular thug

 Listen, I may just be a everyday mom living in the suburbs, but once I drop off those precious babies with the sensitive ears…I’ve been known to switch over to my favorite gangsta rap station.


Of course, I am sure that I look like this when I am moving to my music….2lsdicp

But the heart wants what it wants, and I just can’t help it!😉images-1

Hardcore: maybe not….probably something more like this! ha!b268df9ffe723b276ba720fb47589ff8

Yes, that’s more like it!😉 What a fun link up, Andrea!  Happy Tuesday, friends! XOXO Narci

Marshmallow Brownies

The kids and I tried a new recipe on Saturday night, and it was a big hit.  We were watching Ole Miss play Arkansas, so it’s convenient that I had something chocolate-y and delicious to drown my college football sorrows in.😉  This recipe is from scratch, but it’s super simple!   We had enough for our family of 5 PLUS some to share with our neighbors.  Also, this would be a great recipe for a potluck as well!   Enjoy!


Marshmallow Brownies

1 c. margarine
2 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla

Soften margarine and blend in 2 cups sugar and cocoa.  Beat together and add 4 eggs, one at a time.  Add flour, salt and vanilla.

Spread on large (13×9 inch) greased cookie sheet.  Bake 25 minutes at 350.  Remove from oven and cover entire top with 1 package of miniature marshmallows.  Return to oven for 3 minutes, until soft and puffy.  Cool and frost with chocolate frosting.

Chocolate Frosting:

1 stick margarine (1/2 c.), softened
1/4 cup milk
1-2 tsp vanilla (depending on your taste)
3 tablespoons of cocoa
2-3 cups of powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients with a hand mixer until smooth.  Add more powdered sugar or milk until you reach desired consistency and spread on top of bars.

Original recipe can be found here. :) 

Friday Favorites


Hey, y’all!! It’s Friday, and we are hosting Friday Favorites with my girls, Erika and Andrea!!  Here are my favorites from this week!

Movie Night

Earlier this week, I met up with some girls to see Girl on the Train


I read this book back in May, and the movie did not disappoint for me!  There were more r-rated parts than I remember, but it was still so good!   Girl time is a BIG favorite of mine!

This Scarf

A few people emailed to ask about the jacket and scarf that I wore to the football game last weekend!


You can find a similar jacket here (mine’s sold out) and this scarf here!  (PS You can find my Gold Isadora hoops here!)

It threw it on yesterday when I was having a messy bun/no makeup day, and it instantly made me feel out together! 

I think this scarf is going to be my favorite for this season!  It is so versatile and the perfect color for Fall!

Beth Moore Bible Study

Last month, I made the decision to start a Bible study in our neighborhood, and we meet for the first time today!  We will be studying this book!


I am so excited to see how God works through this study!  It is going to be a GREAT 8 weeks!🙂

These sweet faces

These two were looking pretty sweet before school on Wednesday!


Pumpkin porch pictures just make me happy!

Texas Forever

And, a themed newborn shot is defnitely my favorite!

I visited this cute newborn’s home almost 3 years ago and set up this same shot with their older sister when she was just a newborn as well!  I love a good family tradition, and I am so thankful to be part of this family’s tradition as well!

Happy Friday, y’all!! Don’t forget to link up below!!  XOXO Narci

Happy Thursday, y’all!! XOXO Narci



Hey, y’all! Today, I am linking up with Shay and Erika for their super fun link-up: Stranded!

Stranded With

Each month, we share what 3 things we’d take with us to a deserted island, according to the monthly theme!   So far, we’ve talked beauty products, our favorite books, our favorite Netflix shows, movies, our favorite shoes, and  the 3 famous people that we’d want to be deserted with!

Today, we are sharing our 3 favorite Halloween Candies that we’d like to take to a deserted island.  Just yes!   I think I have said this before, but this island is one Tex Mex restaurant away from being my next vacation destination.  ;) #givemealltheHalloweencandy

Candy Corn

In the weeks leading up to Halloween, I always make sure we have some of this around!


It’s festive and colorful and so addicting!  I may or may not have been in this situation before.😉


Almond Joy

As much I love Candy Corn, I am most likely to steal these from my kids’ Halloween candy stash🙂


Because it has Almonds, I am fairly certain it’s healthy! Look at that!

Heath Bar

and these as well.  :)


I just love a Heath Bar.  It’s the crunch and the toffee combined with the chocolate.   Yes, ma’am!

What a fun link up, girls!!  Thank you!! XOXO Narci

Weekend Wrap-Up

Hey, y’all!  We had a good weekend!  Honestly, I worked a ton and we spent the rest of our time on the soccer fields…but that’s just how it goes this time of the year.  :)

Friday morning brought morning tickles to cheer a little sister up…img_4167

followed by editing all day for me and a fun football game at our local high school that night!img_4180

The weather was amazing!img_4194

Jackson hung out with his friends and these two kept their eyes on the game the whole time.img_4190

Presley was dancing along to the band all night long!🙂

Saturday morning, I had sessions.  I’m not going to lie…this part of my job doesn’t even feel like work. :)  What a precious girl!


followed by soccer for the rest of the dayimg_4279


and even more on Sunday after church!img_4255-1

Monday, the kids went on a little hunting trip with Daddy while I had more sessions and did a few things around the house!   I spiffed up the front porch.  img_4310-1

and decorated the sofa table that Rob assembled for me!   img_4331-1

I am not really sure if it’s staying in this spot, but it was so fun to put this little table together from scratch.🙂

Just another busy week coming up at the Dreffs house!  7 practices and games plus lots more work and some fun mixed in for good measure!  Fall is here, and we are loving it!  Happy Tuesday, y’all! XOXO N
