Happy Valentine’s Day!

It may not suprise anyone that I LOVE Valentine’s Day!   This week has been extra busy though because I tend to pile way too many projects on my plate at once so I found myself scrambling last night to complete the girls’ Valentine’s for their parties and finalizing gifts for their teachers.

For Avery’s class, I designed a simple Printable which I had planned on sharing until my computer decided to reboot before I had a chance to save it.  Argh!  I think they turned out really cute.  I do want a new inkjet printer though (hint! hint!….Mother’s Day?). Ours is a laser printer and I think the quality just isn’t quite as nice as an ink jet for these types of projects.



For Livy’s Valentine’s, I found a printable through Pinterest that I loved.


The girls’ cute skirts were made by their Aunt Jennifer.   We had a little photo op outside since it was a gorgeous morning to capture their V-day outfits.



Livy’s hair is getting longer:


Frugal Friday – Michael’s 50% Off Coupon

I love Michael’s and it certainly doesn’t help matters since it is less than a mile away from my home.   This coupon is too good to NOT use but it expires tomorrow.     I’ll definitely be making a special trip to use it.    Also, you there is no need to print it…just show the coupon on your phone :)


What I Wore Wednesday

I thought I would join in today with The Pleated Poppy for the “What I Wore Wednesday” series. This will be a fun reminder for the girls when they are older to see this Mama’s everyday style. Keeping it real, I only dress up for date nights and I look forward to dressing up! I run my businesses from the comfort of my home and rarely find the motivation to look stylish.   My “style” for the day-to-day is simple and barefoot, unless I have a lunch date or am going out to run errands.


Necklace – a Valentine’s gift several years ago

Shirt – J. Crew

Jeans – Lucky

I recently found this lovely lady’s website,  www.jseverydayfashion.com, and to say I’m excited to find her would be an understatement.  I simply don’t have time to think about what I’m going to wear or rather, I choose not to spend time thinking about it and she has given me a lot of inspiration to mix it up and how to pull things together.    I don’t enjoy shopping for clothing for myself but I LOVE shopping for the girls or our home.

Colors of February

I am slightly obsessed with pink and red right now. My home is very neutral all the way around so I like to bring in pops of color with the season. Right now, I have red tulips in the kitchen and a little happy place for the girls at their table. Red and pink will also be the colors I’ll be using for Olivia’s birthday party on Saturday since there are so many cute things available this time of year in these colors.

A little love for my girls...

Avery and I made the heart banner together for our Make It Monday project which is one of my goals for the year that I made so we can “craft” together. I had the chalk board custom made out of barn wood and then white washed it myself to get the color I wanted. The table accessories are all from Target. I purchased the bowls and cups as well but they didn’t make it into the picture since they had been used that morning. I couldn’t resist! Target can do that to you.


I so enjoy celebrating the month of love. These sweet girls bring so much light into my life!
